Top 5 Reasons Why We Need a New Puppy

1) We lost one of our dogs a year ago.

2) Our youngest is 10 years old, which is the perfect age for a puppy.

3) Tucker needs a friend.

4) She is so darn cute!

5) Who doesn’t need a new puppy?!

After convincing ourselves that we needed a new puppy, we began our search…

How We Found the Right Puppy

Once we decided we needed to get a new puppy, of course we wanted to get one as soon as possible.  That type of urgency can lead to bad decisions, so we took a breath and started researching.  We knew that we did not want to get our puppy from a source that was affiliated with puppy mills of any kind, which unfortunately many local pet store puppies are; so we started our research with the American Kennel Club website. The AKC has loads of information and links to specific breed clubs, which, in our case, led us to the American Miniature Schnauzer Club website.  This site had lots of information on the breed and a list of breeders.  Unfortunately, the sites do not have links directly to listed breeders, so we had to find the names of breeders and then individually search for each one. Time consuming!

After literally three days of searching the internet, we locked in on what will be our 5th miniature schnauzer.  The picture above was texted to us from our favorite breeder (and we talked to many) and we fell in love.

More photos started popping on our phone screen and it was deal done.

Newborn Puppies

After sending in our deposit for our sweet new puppy, we received her new born photo of her and her sister.  The girls were born on 6-17-14 so we won’t be able to bring ours home until August 22nd.  As much as we are dying to have her join our family, we have some work to do around the house to prepare for her arrival.  This is where we ask you for your help….

To Enter This Giveaway, just answer the following question in the comment section of this post:

What should we name our puppy?
