Our family welcomed Daisy, an 8-week old schnoodle puppy, into our clan on December 18, 2006!
Julie and I decided to reward the boys for being so responsible over the last year. So, for Christmas this year, we brought Daisy home. This is our first family pet.
Buying a puppy is a lot more complicated than I ever imagined. We searched for a breed that was hypoallergenic and small. We then started looking for litters in the area. We eventually found a breeder in Michigan that had one female puppy that was not yet spoken for. It ended up being cheaper to fly up to Michigan and pick up the puppy than to purchase one here in Florida. In addition, we were unable to find any schnoodle pups in Florida that would be ready to come home in time for Christmas. So, I made arrangements with the breeder who met me at the airport in Lansing, Michigan with the puppy. I flew up, picked up the puppy, got right back on the plane and flew back in the same afternoon!
We introduced Daisy to the boys last night and they were thrilled...
