Sasha Sunshine

On Good Friday Bradley & I decided that the time had come for us to get a puppy. I had been checking the Greensheet daily for weeks trying to find a female Maltipoo. Everytime a listing would get posted, I would call and they would tell me that they had just sold the last female or that the males were $300 and the females were $1200. I just don't think it would be the same to have this fru-fru dog and have it be a boy so we kept looking. Since Brad had the day off, we sat around all morning looking at ads on the Internet. I finally found a guy that had several girls and they were the same price as the boys! The only problem was that he (and the puppies) were in San Antonio. Then excitement kicked in and we decided that a road trip to SA-town was in order. My mom and dad decided they would go with us so that we could all go out to eat after we got the puppy. When we got to the address that the guy had given us...of course HE HAD JUST LEFT WITH THE PUPPIES! He had given me his father-in-law's address, and he had left like 20 minutes before we got there to go home. So his father-in-law called him (since he wouldn't answer my phone calls) and finally he agreed to meet us half-way (he lived like 45 minutes away). So when we finally found him, Brad picked up Sasha and I picked up a tiny white runt....we couldn't decide which puppy to get so finally Brad told me that we weren't getting the puppy that I was holding because she kept crying if I sat her down. So we paid the guy and left...and Sasha has been terrorizing us ever since! She is a sweet puppy, but it took us a little while to get accustomed to her 4:30 a.m. wake-up calls. :) Hope you like the pictures...more to come about her later.
