Yes, Mr. Nash is probably the cutest thing to ever walk this planet.
Jess and I had been talking about getting a puppy for a while. I mean c'mon...I get a little lonely while Jess is at work and let's face it...I grew up with the most AMAZING dog ever (gotta love my Pete) so it's only normal to miss him. I just HAD to get a puppy to help ease my loneliness. Jess was more than willing to fulfill my wishes.
We began researching types of dogs with our list of criteria in hand (good with kids, smart, semi-easy to train, doesn't shed, cuddly, not overly energetic etc.) That's when I discovered the maltipoo. EXACTLY what we wanted and SOOO adorable.
It was then that I consulted good ol' azcentral.com and looked at the classifieds. I began looking at all the pictures of the different puppies. I found a TON that I thought were so adorable and I was getting really excited. That's when I found the ad with Nash in it. I pulled up the picture of the four puppies from his litter and immediately spotted him. I instantly knew that THAT was my puppy. Here's how it went:
Me: "OH MY GOSH, JESS."
Me: "I found my puppy."
Jess: "Where? Let me see."
Me: points to cute puppy "That one."
Jess: "Why not that one with the black ear?"
Me: "No I want THAT one. THAT is my puppy. I'm telling you. I feel it."
Jess: "Okay. He's cute. Let's look at him."
Me: "I was planning on it."
The next morning I called and found out they only had one of the puppies left. We went to look at him and sure enough...it was THAT one. My puppy. It was love at first sight. We bought him that night.
He was so sweet and cuddly. A tad bit scared....but that's to be expected. He's now all settled in to his new home. I think he's really happy. He's a total mama's boy and follows me around EVERYWHERE. If I move away too fast for him to keep up he cries or if I ever move out of his line of sight her freaks out. But he loves his daddy also. In fact, I walked into our room earlier this afternoon to find the two of them fast asleep, cuddled up together. My two boys. So presh. Anyway, we LOVE our puppy. He's starting to get a hang of going to the bathroom when we take him outside but still has some accidents. He even peed on our bed earlier today. But that's okay. He'll learn and I'm ready to teach him. He's so much fun!
(Nash loves his little bed and his cute little toys)
(Nash likes the kitty? Hmmm...)
(I love my boy...)
(He's so precious when he sleeps!)
(Trying to get him to pee...unsuccessfully...)
(He did this on his own. He crawled behind me and poked his head between my legs, then crawled through. Cutest thing ever. He's so tiny!)
(When I asked him to go "potty", he instead decided to BURROW himself in this bush and take a nap. It was so cute I ran to get my camera and capture the moment. But of course, the second I ran back out...he had sat up. Oh well...still cute.)
