Price and I have been talking about getting a dog for a while. Most of the conversations have been big picture convos like ‘oh wouldn’t it be fun to have a dog bring on this hike?!?’ or ‘look at this puppy! we should get one soon.’ Things started to get more real once we bought our house since we would not have to worry about a puppy in a 1-bedroom rental with lots of attached neighbors above and below.
So things really started to come together within the last 2 months as we narrowed down breeds that we liked. We really wanted to get a French Bulldog but their 2K+ price tag was not going to allow that. In the end we decided on getting a Boston Terrier because of their size, temperament, grooming needs, and their overall adorableness. I found a reputable local breeder that had puppies born on December 10th, meaning the puppies would be available to take home in February… SQUEEE!!!
Well, we went to meet the 3 week old puppies yesterday. O.M.G!!! So cute. We got to see all 9 Boston Terrier puppies, as well as some pug and french bulldog puppies. The big mama had 6 females and 3 males so we had plenty of pups to snuggle with.
In the end we put a deposit down for a male. We were the first ones there so we have first pick of which male to take home. We have the opportunity to come hang with them again before we take one home so we’ll have to see how their personalities develop. Plus it will be fun to see them grow over time. I just can’t wait!!!!
The best is that when we came home our clothes still had that great puppy smell to them. I am a total sucker for that.
More cute updates to come!!

Congratulations on your new addition. Otis my Boston is 4 years old. He is the best part of my world. I would not trade him for all the tea in China. You are in for so much fun. The love that you get in return is unlimited. Boston’s have their very own personalities, no two are alike.
Happy New Year to you, what better way to start it out. A new Puppy!!!!
great to hear you have had such good luck with bostons. very excited to get one.

I’m not sure that I would say I am lucky. My little guy was one of the lucky 1% of the breed that got jr. Cataracts and has lost about 90% of his vision. Because of this he has turned into a real daddy’s boy. He gets frightened very easily and stay’s very close to me. This hasn’t stopped him though. He plays ball every chance he gets. Loves going for walks. Has figured out how to get to the stream behind my summer trailer to get a drink or go for a swim on his own. Never the less, this breed is super. You will have a little gentleman after you have trained him. They are very smart, although some times a little stubborn. They are not barkers either. Really good choice!!! Enjoy and love him!!!
aww sorry about the cataracts! huge bummer for them. Our family dog has them. She is also a little deaf but she is 15, otherwise in good health. Glad that you guys have adapted and your Boston is a daddy’s boy.
