Let me just say it now.
We got a PUPPY.
I happened to see him online at a nice animal rescue and applied for adoption. After that--and them checking ALL my references-- it kind of happened fast. Needless to say, the kiddo is THRILLED.
I was looking for some kind of poodle mix so that there might be less chance of shedding and allergies since September. However, I was NOT looking to adopt a puppy, but there he was, and well, he was so cute. LOL He's only 8 or 9 weeks old and maybe 4lbs. Not much bigger than our guinea pig!
He's part poodle, part cocker spaniel, part beagle. He's not shedding (right now anyway) and I'm not having any allergy issues. He's black with white paws, so we decided to call him SOX--but we spelled that way to honor the Red Sox, too (who are playing extremely well right now, by the way)
Needless to say, I've been doing A LOT of research and reading The Puppy Whisperer (a present from my neighbor who just got a puppy a few months ago)
Here are some pictures:

What's new with you? Any puppy advice?
