It was magical.”

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.”

“Two dogs that I was interested in through other rescue organizations got adopted the day before I went to meet them.

After that I started contacting Miniature Dachshund breeders, but I strolled into a pet store and saw Rosie.

It was love at first sight.

She was tiny.  I think she was 3.2 lbs.

She was playful, but not crazy, and was very sweet.

While we were signing the paperwork to buy her, she fell asleep in our arms.”

Audrey Hepburn was my inspiration and she had Yorkshire’s.

When my last Yorkie, Master Timmy (he was named for his great grandfather) passed away, I was very sad.”
