4. Get a dog

I did it! I finally got a dog!! Isn't she CUTE?

Today started out like any normal day. I helped my sister bring my nephews to the doctor and then we stopped at the mall to pick up a mother's day and birthday present for my mom. We stopped by the pet store in the mall and I honestly didn't plan on getting a dog--just oohing and ahhing at all the cuteness. But they had the most adorable little minature schnauzers! I've grown up with these dogs--they are perfect cuddling size, don't shed, and are super-cute. So I spent some time with three different dogs and ended up falling in love with this little sweetie. She's only 2 months old and very tiny. She has a really calm disposition and snuggles right up to you instantly. And she wants to be as close as possible to you. Right now she's asleep on my lap as I'm typing.

As of yet she has no name yet. So if you have any ideas, please comment! I don't really like people names for dogs and no food items or typical dog names. But I need to come up with something soon! Right now she's just "sweetie" or "puppy."

Off to search the internet for name ideas....

I feel like I just had a baby or something :).

Oh my goodness!!!! She's adorable! I can't believe you just bought her. You're crazy! Ok names...

Her face looks like a big puff, so maybe something like puff face or cotton ball or poof. :)

Ok, so in my search for a suitable name, I also went and searched out some dog names. Some of my least favorites as of right now are Prudence and Pudgette. However, poofball was on one of the lists and I kind of like it. You could call her poof for short. Or maybe something stong and completely opposite of how she looks like Bear or Bengal (also on the dog names list). Bits is cute too. Or Mini since she's so tiny. Oh, I can't wait to see her in person!!!! Congrats friend!

That's awesome Melissa! Congrats.

I've always been partial to naming my pets after cities. Have a favorite?


You could go with "Puffs". Or does that remind you of tissues?

She's so cute! I think you should name her after something that intrigues you. Like a place you've always wanted to visit...Sydney...or something you've always wanted to do...Bungee? How about a photography name...Flash?! Keep us updated on what you decide!

She totally looks like a Dixie! How cute is she! I love dogs and mine is still my first "baby." We refer to him now as the "Big" brother, even though he is only 11 pounds and now weighs less than Ella!
