And they call it puppy love

Yesterday, Pricer and I went to our Boston Terrier breeder to visit the puppies again. We are picking up our pup next weekend!!! We had our deposit in first so we get first pick so we came to take some time to figure out which one we liked most on appearance and personality.

There are 3 males to pick from so we each held them for a bit to see how they did being held again. Plus the puppy breath is to die for.

At that point I was drawn to the first puppy born which was a brindle one. Price liked the 2nd one (photo directly above) and the 3rd one, which was the smallest. As usually, we agreed on nothing.

Tony, the breeder, said we could put them down. This would allow us to see how they played and responded to us. Game changer.

Tony also had 2 rex 6 month old kittens. One decided that I made the perfect seat to watch us play with the puppies.

After we left the puppies play around for a while between us we decided on #3, above picture. While they are all super wonderful puppies and we would be lucky to get any of them, we picked him because he was the mellowest of the three. The other 2 wanted to climb over us, which was cute, but we are aiming for a little guy who is a bit more chill. Plus one who does not NEED to chew on our shoes and pants, which the other 2 quite enjoyed.

We put the pups back in the elevated crate to snuggle with the girls and take a nap. The puppy pid pile is the cutest. One choice on #3 seemed to solidify when #1 started to hump one of the sleeping girls, which let him know she did not enjoy that. Not polite!

Some of the girls woke back up and were thirsty.

Fat belly!!!


I just about peed my pants laughing when I turned and looking at Tony’s pugs. He was falling asleep like that so his block head would droop down and then pop back up as he caught himself dozing. Hilarious.

It was so worth it to go back since they changed a lot in 4 weeks and having that time with him really helped us pick which one we will be taking home next week. SQUEEE!!!!

Puppy Time!!!!!

boston terrier puppies_06   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.
