And then Mildred Agnes Estel came along an stole our hearts

Matt and I have wanted a puppy since we got married. Our first apartment in Chicago, we could not have pets. so that solved that problem.... 

When we moved to Michigan, we decided we definitely wanted a place that we could have a dog. Then, we moved and decided financially we should wait a bit. 

Then we put it off more when we decided we shouldn't have a puppy during our first Michigan winter... 

we obviously couldn't wait. We have been looking for a puppy for about a month. We started looking at the humane society. They didn't have what we wanted. Matt and I both wanted a small dog. We live in a 2 bedroom upper duplex and we didn't want a big dog here. 

On Wednesday night, we found a puppy listed on ebay classifieds. She won our hearts. I called the lady and she said she still had all 3. We said "we will be there tomorrow". I went to work that night and Matt picked me up after my shift and we went straight to the ladies house, an hour away. She had 2 females. We literally had the hardest time making our decision! They were both so cute! 
She is a jack russell terrier and maltipoo (maltese and poodle) mix. 

 this little white and cream fluff ball won our hearts. 

We drove there saying "we cannot come home with a dog today". We were hoping to have the lady keep her until Saturday (today). That didn't happen. We were too in love. We brought her straight home.

Matt never had a dog growing up. Can i just tell you, he is smitten. 

but how can you not be?!?! look at her...

We had game night at our place last night and had about 14-15 people over. I was a little worried about how that was going to go over with the new pup. She was such a champ! She loved every minute of it! She, of course, got the most attention ever. 

We are so in love.
