I didn’t think he would do it. We had been talking about having two dogs for a while and at first I just wasn’t convinced since I knew two would not be less work than one. Sure, they will keep each other company – which is a plus – but there would still be two dogs. However, after two years of one dog and thinking that Lexi (our mini dachshund) would like a friend, I thought to myself – it would be amazing to give Matt a dog for Christmas. A puppy for Christmas is one of the best presents – or at least one of those you dream about as a little kid (I did)… but it would be near impossible to arrange, especially traveling over the holidays.
So I thought about it… and I decided I would tell Matt that if he wanted to, he could get ME a puppy for Christmas.
and the crazy thing is he did.
I was completely surprised on December 23 when he told me to come into the kitchen and open an early Christmas present. I saw the wrapped box on the floor and my mind raced. I opened it up to find a 8 week old mini dachshund puppy with a white coat with black spots.
Lexi + the puppy aren’t the best of friends yet even though they look like they are in the picture above. It will take some time since he’s still really young but I’m sure soon they’ll be thick as thieves. He’s pretty hard to resist when he’s out in the cold…
