“I am really busy with school, as is my girlfriend.

We are also busy with work, and sometimes it’s difficult to take care of them.

We often discuss which one of us will do the last walk at night because we are both tired and want to go to sleep.

It’s always me, but she does the morning walk, so it all works out.

Having dogs has brought a calmness to our relationship.

Anubis and Dima are the center of attention, as opposed to smaller issues that don’t seem so important anymore.

The joy and responsibility they bring to us, definitely makes us feel more like a family.”

“Dima (the Pomsky) always looks like he’s smiling and it makes me want to grin too.

Anubis (the Chion) loves everybody and was excited to make a new friend when we brought Dima home.

Dima takes time to warm up to people and it took him time to get used to living with Anubis.

Now, they love each other and he even lets Anubis in his crate.

He knows Anubis always wants to be near someone.

They are best friends.”

“The litter was running around in open farmland and playing with one another.

I met them and spotted him immediately, because he was the only one with different colored eyes.

I got to pick him up, and I loved him right away.

He was less fluffy and looked more wild.

I didn’t see the Pomeranian in him, but I didn’t care.”

“I looked at the same place in the Amish Country, where we got Anubis, Greenfield Puppies, because it is not a puppy mill and their dogs turn out well.

Dima is what’s called a Pomsky; a Pomeranian Husky mix.

When I saw him, he stood out to me.

He looked like he was smiling in the photograph, and he has one blue eye and one brown eye.

When I when to Greenfield Puppies, it was just the way I hoped it would be.”

“Two veterinarians said he is a Papillon Chihuahua mix (Chion), and it’s pretty obvious.

He has Chihuahua eyes.

After having Anubis for six months, I decided to get another dog.

I wanted a Husky since I was little but living in a NYC apartment, we thought a smaller version would be better in our space.

I started looking at Husky mixes.”

“Anubis came first.

My girlfriend was a cat person who didn’t really like dogs, but I convinced her to get a dog.

She decided to get a small dog.

She met a Papillon that she liked and decided this was the dog for her.

After researching online, she found a breeder in the Amish Country that she liked, with favorable reviews.

We found out that he was a mix because his fur kept growing but he didn’t.”

KIWI, THE CHIPOO – CHIHUAHUA/POODLE MIX (SHE SAID, PART 5)

“Since having Kiwi, we moved to New York, from Palo Alto and she provided great companionship throughout the move.

We weren’t as close to a dog park in California, so New York is great for her because she loves the dog park.

Having Kiwi has given me another creature to care for and my maternal instincts have kicked in.

The three of us make a nice little family.”

“It was difficult at first because she wanted to sleep with me, but my roommate didn’t want her in our bedroom, so she was relegated to the living room.

She cried and scratched at the door, so I got a trainer and I practiced going in and out of the bedroom and not responding when she cried or scratched at the door.”

“It was a foster to adopt process and I had a week to decide if I wanted to keep her, but

I was convinced from the first minute, when she hopped on my lap, that she would be mine.

I had a few roommates, so they had to get to know her and approve.

It took a little convincing with some of my roommates, but by the week’s end, everyone approved.

M boyfriend was visiting, and he had to approve, too.”

“I liked the expression on her face and they described her as being quiet.

Also, I lived in a no dog allowed apartment.

To get past the no dog rule, I got a letter from a therapist saying, I needed her for emotional support, which I did.

I didn’t hear for a few days, but when I followed up, they told me to come and pick her up.

I left work and picked her up an hour later.”
