$700 worth of cuteness

I got this text from Kristian the other day:

"10 weeks old. Little girl. I want."


Kristian is DYING to get a puppy. He asks me almost daily if we can get a dog. You would think he was a little kid. I keep telling him I want to wait until we get the back part of the fence built (we just have the two sides we share with the neighbors). I also want to get a little more money in the bank because pets are expensive and we already have two cats and a turtle. He keeps saying one day I'm going to come home and find a puppy. I told him I would prefer to help pick out our future pet. That's not the kind of thing I want to be surprised with. 

We both really like Dachshunds (his parents, sister and uncle all have dachshunds) and we would prefer a girl and also really like the red heads so really this little puppy fits the bill. However it's also $700 at the pet store. No thank you. I don't really want to buy a dog from a pet store or breeder, I would much prefer adopting from the animal shelter or rescue.

I'm not gonna lie if he had found this little girl at the shelter and she was more budget friendly I may have actually agreed.

she's so adorable!!! i think you know how i feel about wieners. they are such good pets. :)

we got lucy from a family who wasn't necessarily breeding dachshunds but had two who happened to have a litter. we found out about them through our vet's office bulletin board and paid only $200. just an idea. :)

Ohhhh I beg of you not to purchase from a pet store! I know those pups need homes too, but I'm absolutely convinced they come from puppy mills :(

I know, I'm crazy.

She is cute, but I definitely agree, you should not buy your next pet. I think the saying is "why breed or buy while shelter pets die." I know it is a bit dramatic, but it's true!

Both my dogs are pure breeds, both are rescues, I actually posted a pic of both of them yesterday--check them out, they are super cute!

aw, what a cutie! My uncle had a Dachshund, and she was super good with us (we were teeny kids at the time). She was a good traveler. My friend has two that have longer hair and are absolutely precious. You'll just have to hope your cats don't bully. They'll probably be bigger than the dog!

Puppies must be one of the most direct ways to a person's heart. It's amazing how much we're willing to pay for those cute little bundles of joy! But they're worth it every time :)
