"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.
