We found a breeder on puppyfind.com and saw that she had one “red baby” left. So that was him…..that was our puppy! On Christmas day, we put a deposit down and waited. We waited and waited. It seemed like forever!! Finally, it was January 21st. We got in the car and drove 5 hours to meet this new member of the family and bring im home. Now, I know some of you are thinking “Gosh! 5 hours?! aren’t there any dogs around Richmond that need a home?!”. Yes, there are so many puppies in need of a home but we have this BIG issue at our house….. ALLERGIES. Michael is the worst. He sneezes just being around my family’s Springer Spaniel! We had to find a puppy that didn’t SHED… at all. Bichon’s and Poodles are non-shedding breeds and so we thought this would be our BEST option… and it was. Bokeh may be a ball of fluff but that fluff doesn’t come out! It’s WONDERFUL!!!!
So as soon as we got him home, we loved him. He was a TON of work and our daily schedules changed drastically but we loved having a 3rd member to our little family! The sad thing is…. they change so fast! Just in the FIRST MONTH we noticed him changing almost daily!! It was crazy! So naturally, I took pictures of him…. like everyday. God bless my poor future children. Thank goodness I don’t use flash or they would end up blind. Here are some highlights of Bokeh’s first month at home with us!! Enjoy these and happy monday!!
Such a little nugget!
This bed didn’t last long… he started ripping it to shreds. Great.
A little shy on his first walk through the backyard:)
ohh my gooodnesss. That face! This was before we bought the doggy gate and we just had a little bench set up across the kitchen doorway and he was trying to get out:)
Steps used to be a BIG deal for Bokeh Boy…. he flies up them now!
First bath…. we realized that under all that hair, we really just had a hairy chihuahua! His body is TINY!
haha love this. #teething.
He’s a good walker now… but not at first. At first, we were a little concerned!
Nap time on the couch.
We quickly found out that he’s a JUMPER! We call him our little circus dog because he’ll literally stands on his hind legs forever!
Our families love him:)
Momma’s first grandbaby…. seriously. My mom AND Michael’s mom treated Bokeh like a grandchild! I mean that’s fine with us! We have constant puppy sitters!
