For a couple of months my boyfriend and I have been discussing getting a dog. After giving away two of our cats to a loving family, our cat Felix (he’s more of a dog though) was getting lonely. We gave away our other two cats as they hated our new home and couldn’t get used to living on the fifth floor. Felix on the other hand, could live anywhere. Seriously. He could probably sleep in a cactus if he had to. Anyways, this October my mom started looking for a possible dog companion. My mom is an absolute dog expert, and quite frankly the smartest person alive, so she was the one who found our pup. At first we were going to get a husky lab, but then she was adopted. We then moved onto a golden lab, but we were too late with her too. I had lost hope for trying to find a dog, when my mom showed me a picture of a beautiful Maltese Cocker Spaniel mix. I was in love. Maltese and cocker spaniels are my two favourite breeds and they have amazing temperaments, which is great considering I have an anxiety disorder. My mother and boyfriend, being the most gracious people in the world, drove an hour there and back to get my dream dog…at 9:00PM!!
I named her Pheobe inspired by Pheobe from the show Charmed. She is extremely playful and has A LOT of training to do. My boyfriend and I love her so much even though she takes up most of our time! Puppies are definitely a handful, but I wouldn’t want it any other way. I’m so excited to see her grow and become a more independent pup.
There’s a bit of insight on what’s going on in my life right now! Thank you for reading.
