Tinkerbell has arrived...




Yes it's true. I finally got my little Tinkerbell, well she's a female yorkie, but I think the name is cute. I have always wanted a female yorkie so I could name her that. We were going to wait until we could mate our male yorkie and then get a female puppy, but well.... we were impatient. It all started out as a trip to buys some DVDs. The DVD's are for sale off base next to a place called Puppy Luv. So anyway, my husband has been dying for a Chihuahua and we were going to take a peek to see if they had any. Well needless to say they didn't, but they did have two baby yorkies. I was looking at the boy, not even thinking about buy one. But they are so darn cute you can't help but want one. The owner of the store told us we could hold them so I picked up the male. Nick decided to hold the little girl. Not too long after that Nick was like, "Ask how much they are!" I didn't want to since I knew it would be a lot. Which I was right, but they had a payment plan. Who knew you could buy a dog in monthly installments? I sure didn't. So then Nick asked me if I had the checkbook. "Checkbook, no I do not have it with me, why do you ask?" was my reply. I saw the gleam in his eye; he had been captured by the little half pound girl. He kept coaxing me by saying we would make our money back when she had puppies. He also said he would give up his need for a Chihuahua. So how could I resist? We came home and picked up the checkbook and went back to get my little angel. She's so cute and sweet. She's very attached to me already and I admit that I love it. Sadly, the second night we had her she got really sick, almost died actually. So we took her to the vet and found out she has Hyperglycemia. So now she has to be fed every 2-3 hours. She's just like having a baby around the house, I guess she's preparing me.
