After many years of the kids wanting a puppy to call their own, it has come to be. Luke has crazy allergies and it has been a struggle for him to even be around the guinea pig "Cuggles" for for more than a few minutes without sneezing away.
Every once in a great while I find myself looking in the online classifieds at the puppies for sale. Well on Friday I found what I thought to be the one that Luke might be able to tolerate being around. Everything I read said that they were as hypoallergenic as any dog can be, not to mention wonderful family pets. Double Score!!
He is a Cavachon, which is a mix of a King Charles Cavalier and a Bichon Frise. I had never heard of this breed mix, but evidently they are all the rave in the designer dog world. I am so not designer anything! I am all about what is best for my family though. If you decide to look up cavachons you will find that they can be out of this world expensive. Like anywhere from $800-2500. Hahahahaha! I do not have that kind of money to spend on a pet. We only spent a small fraction of that.
There was no picture of the little fella and he was a couple of hours away. I am not sure what even made me pursue the ad other that a little nudging from above. I had many reservations about it, but I just felt that he was suppose to be with us. He was an older pup (5 months), had no potty training and was far away. Well I told the breeder (and I use that term loosely) I would take him sight unseen if he would meet me half way. He agreed and the rest is history.
This little guy is either going to cure me or kill me. I think it may be the latter of the two. He is so insanely cute and lovable though, it is worth it. Luke has been with him all weekend and he has not bothered his allergies one bit. Not one sneeze (caused by him). Hip Hip Hooray!
"Willy" is exactly what we were waiting for and he has taken to us as if we were meant to be his.
I hope we have many many years of love ahead of us!
