Let me tell you a little secret, but you’ll have to promise me never to tell anyone about it okay. Nah I’m just kidding, this is still a blog the last time I looked, and telling secrets here really is an example of a very counter-productive thing, if there ever really was one. I guess I’ll just have to let you in on one of my guilty pleasures. I love little dogs and I am currently in the process of planning to buy one of my own.
The one I’ve got my eyes on is one of the various breeds of poodle mixes that are such a joy to look at. I’m talking about the Bichon Frise, also know as the Bichon Poodle. These are dogs that are about the size of a big house cat, typically around one to one and a half feet tall when fully grown. It weighs in at around six to fifteen pounds depending on which diet they are on and they look particularly cute, especially when they are sleeping.
Although a particularly small kind of dog, they live to almost fifteen years, a sentiment to how really hardy they are as a breed. They are very intelligent and are very at ease in a family setting, they also are very witty and are easily trainable. In fact the breed is a regular staple on dog shows and competitions all over the country, oftentimes winning in the cording and showmanship categories. They are best around children, not that we have any yet, but still a very good dog to have around the house.
I do not really know why I am attracted to dogs, little ones in particular. Maybe I’m just lonely and stuff, with only my wife and me living in a very large house. Sometimes it does get gloomy, especially during winter when it’s always snowing outside and you’re virtually trapped inside the house. Or maybe it’s just my way of showing my longing for a child of our own, and getting a dog might somehow ease it. Yes it maybe is that.
We have been trying very hard to have a baby for quite some time now. We have done almost everything you can think of but it seems it’s not yet time for us to have a little angel we could call our own. I have been checked medically, as well as my wife, and we are both fine in the baby making department, but still, miracles somehow always evade our grasps.
Anyways, I’m starting to drift off again sorry, back to the topic at hand. Yep, it’s going to be really soon that I will get my hands on my very own pooch. I’ve already made its cot and bought his bowl. I never really made him a doghouse as I figured that he will be staying inside with us in the house, as no dog of mine will ever get to sleep outside where he will be at the mercy of the elements, mind you. The name would probably come later when I get to see him sometime this week, which also reminds me to call the local pet dealer that I have contacted about the dog. See ya.
