One day, in the future, we shall adopt a furry friend into our little ‘family.’ Although it remains to be foreseen when this day will be, it’s never to late to start thinking, dreaming and squeeing (def. 1 &3) over puppy cuteness.
In my mind, our lil cutie will be just that, a smaller pup, and likely a poodle mix. Why poodle? Well, while undoubtedly adorable, poodles definitely are a win due to their winning mix of intelligence and non-shedding, virtually hypoallergenic coat. Also, according to Wikipedia, toy poodles’ median lifespan is 14.5 years. But that leaves the second portion of the equation unanswered…why mix? Well, a few reasons:
- Purebreds may have more inherent health problems (of course, this can happen with any doggie, but it’s something to keep in mind) and cost more.
- Adopting a pup is a great way to win-win; bring love into your life, and take a dog out of a situation that might be less than ideal.
- There are TONS of super adorable poodle mixes!
Can I get a collective “awwwwwww”!?
