Janet talked about getting a dog for a good while. She wanted a little one, a lap dog, about 5 pounds full grown.
Fine with me.
If I had another dog, I want an outside dog, a Golden Retriever, maybe a Rottweiler.
Sometimes wants aren’t practical. We have plenty of room for a big dog to roam, but our neighbors have 17 or 18 horses. The fence keeps horses in, but I have no way to keep a big dog out. I’m content with that.
So, when Janet started finding pomapoo puppies on line (half Pomeranian, half miniature poodle), I was que sera sera.
She settled on looking at one in a nearby town. They texted pictures of two puppies left, along with a video of a little monkey they have as a pet playing with the puppies.
The Pomeranian dad was supposedly 3 pounds with the mama allegedly an 8-pound miniature poodle.
The smaller, calmer one was the one Janet picked. It was December 13, before Christmas, so she named it Joy for the season, and for the fruit of the spirit.
I’ve since wondered if Satan, or maybe Little Lucifer, for thorn in the flesh, would’ve been a better name.
Anyway, life at our house changed, a lot.
Joy only weighed 2 pounds when we got her, but was “expected” to be about 5 or 6 pounds, at the most. She’s 10.2 pounds now and growing.
Janet keeps asking the vet how big Joy will get. The vet just shrugs and kindly smiles, “We’ll see”.Continue reading Oh, Joy!
