I’ve mentioned her quite a bit, but I don’t think you’ve been properly introduced to my little dog. This is Piper.
A 7lb chihuahua mix. Mixed with what? No idea! I’ve heard everything from dachshund, miniature pinscher, to a rat terrier and even a Bernese Mountain Dog(from the coloring only). I adopted Piper in April 2012 when she was 6 months old. My miniature dachshund, Peanut, died 4 months before that. I was heartbroken and thought I would never own another dog again. I missed Peanut so much and just having a dog around in general. After awhile, I decided to foster dogs for my local shelter. I had nothing but great experiences and really enjoyed having a little buddy (sometimes two!) around. After playing mommy to a handful of dogs for a couple of months, I started to have a change of heart. Maybe I could get another dog. My boyfriend agreed and we put the word out that we were interested in another dog. Our friends came forth with leads and luckily, one of them told us about Piper. Her owner could no longer keep her and she needed a new home. We met Piper and were sold. I mean, how could we not be after seeing that cute wittle face!?
Ok, Ok. Cuteness aside, she’s great. A little too protective of me, a bit anxious, playful, and smart. We love her and I’m glad we decided to allow another dog into our hearts.
