This past weekend was a special ( and crazy ) one you guys. Michael and I got ourselves a new puppy!! His name is Walter. We’ve been talking about getting a dog for awhile now, but didn’t quite expect it to happen so fast. This upcoming winter was the goal, which would have allowed us plenty of time to get settled into our new house. But life doesn’t always work out as planned, does it?? After researching a few local breeders, I came across Walter, who also happened to be available and ready to go right away. Without much warning, I fell in love – and the next thing you know, Michael and I ( and my mom, too ) were driving up north to meet our potential pup.
When we got inside, Walter was busy playing around with another puppy getting adopted that very same day. But as soon as we picked him up, he melted into our arms and cuddled on the spot. I’m used to hyper puppies, so this was a nice surprise. We weren’t sure if we would come home with a puppy or not since it’s a huge decision, but we did. Just couldn’t help it. He was so docile + quiet the entire ride home and has fit right in and warmed up to us nicely.
On Friday evening, neither of us knew we would end our weekend with a new addition to the family … so needless to say, everything has gotten a bit crazy over here. With a bunch of huge house projects going on, maintaing a normal work schedule on top of training Walter has definitely been a challenge, but one that we’re up for. He makes up for the crazy, though, by sleeping ( or just hanging out ) next to me while I work during the day. I guess I have a new office mate, ehh?! Every morning I’ve been telling him it’s “time to go to work,” hoping that soon he’ll know what that means and hop right into my office.
And just in case you’re curious : Walter is a Morkie. Three quarters Maltese and one quarter Yorkie. Currently, he’s about 3.8 pounds, but will grow somewhere between 5-10 pounds! More likely on the higher end of that. I’m sure I’ll be sharing loads of photos on instagram, so, my apologies if that gets out of control. ;)
