This is Frenchie Macaroon.
If you missed the post on Instagram last night, we bought Kensington a puppy.
Because we’ve clearly lost our minds. 😉
No, not really. This was a decision three years in the making. Sweet Kensington has been asking for a dog of her own for every single holiday for the last three years. She’s asked us. She’s asked Santa. She’s asked my parents. She’s asked Ms. Erika. She’s asked. And asked. And asked. And we’ve repeatedly told her no. We have a dog! We don’t need another one! But then one day in June, Andrew and I were watching her with her sisters and I don’t know…it hit me like a ton of bricks. This kid has been such a trooper. She has never, not one single time, questioned all of the things we’ve thrown at her over the last 2½ years. Kensington has been such an amazing big sister to Ashby and Madeley. She has loved these girls so much, she has been so selfless, she has been so supportive, so sweet, so kind and so wonderful…and I just thought, she deserves a puppy.
So, we decided that since we adore Poppy so much and she’s been just the best dog for our family, that we would get another Coton de Tulear. We went through the American Coton Club where they only have 23 breeders in the US that qualify to be a part of this organization. We found a breeder we really loved…but then we had to wait for the puppies to be born and for them to be old enough to leave the litter. So, we told Kensington the big news on her 9th birthday and then last night, we got her puppy. She named her Frenchie Macaroon 🙂 .
Poppy about lost her mind with excitement when we brought her home last night. For a dog that loves to sleep all day, she sure has perked up with a new friend in the house 🙂 .
Anyway…I can’t blog any more today…I have a puppy to take care of…because no matter how much this dog is Kensington’s…she will be at school today, so I’m on puppy duty. I’m sure I’ll be sharing a ton of Frenchie pics in the future.
Any new puppy tips? We covet them!!! Or any two dog tips? I’ll take those too!! Ha! We’re smitten this morning 🙂 .
