Summer Savings Week 4: All Gemstones and Artist Beads on Sale through 7/29!
fresh picks


Description from Granny Nancy: I almost have a dog. He's most likely a papillon/chihuahua mix. He was tossed over the fence behind my vet's office. I've waited patiently for them to get everything done before I could adopt him. He's healthy and I already love him. He's mostly black with white feet and white on his chest and belly. But I can't bring him home until Saturday since my cataract surgery is Thursday AM. I'll attach a picture.

    Oooo, I can see why you are in love with this little guy. Too cute, & your pick is perfect. We have a Papillion. They are extremely smart dogs. Very loyal. So glad you have found him & will give him a forever home.

    Hi Jacki…Teddy is for sure a mix. Probably with chihuahua and maybe even a ways back some dachsund. He seems long to me. Here’s another picture – do you think he’s kind of long?

    Granny Nancy says:

    Hi Deb…. I’m hoping he’s happy with the kitties. I have 2 young ones – same age as they think he is – 3 – they like to chase each other and I hope he gets into the play with them. There will be a period of adjustment but from my experience, they’ll adjust.

    I forgot to say your pick totally captured his coloring. Love the 2nd photo, he is a long doggy. So cute.
    Good luck with your cataract surgery tomorrow. My Mom had it done several years ago and it went like a breeze she said.

    Granny, he looks longer than you usually see Papillions, but that’s what adds to his character & cuteness. I’ve decided mixes are usually hardier than pure breds. Nonetheless, he is precious and can’t wait for you to bring him to his forever home. Here is a pic of Rocky & Buddy giving kisses…you can kinda see his length here. But, he is 95% hair & 5% body. Papilions tend to have fine, human like hair.


  18. Granny Nancy
    Granny Nancy says:

    Oh Jacki, your little papillon is adorable. I can’t wait until Teddy’s hair grows back. Someone obviously gave him a choppy haircut before they abandoned him. The vet techs have bathed him several times and have snipped some of the rough edges so it will grow out pretty. I really think there’s dachsund somewhere in his heritage. But I’m so glad for the long hair. They just look so adorable – especially the butterfly ears. But that face – I just melt when I look at that cute face. I too prefer mixes. I inherited a full breed black lab for a while until my son got a place of his own and that dog was wonderful. At the time, I had a lab mix and a golden/basset mix. They were my treasures.

  19. OK Jacki
    OK Jacki says:

    I forgot to say that Rocky’s hair is cut shorter than normal. As he’s aged, it’s harder to brush him well, etc. so, I’ve been having the groomer trim him shorter. Usually, their hair does best if you only trim the feet and ‘under the tail, if necessary. Usually, it ‘flows’ to the floor…sides, tail plume, etc. And the ears stand straight up, just like your Teddy…like the butterflies for which they were named. I’m so thrilled you have a puppy coming to your home. It will be awesome company for you. He seems perfect.

    Nancy, what exciting news!!! :D Your pick is the perfect way to introduce your adorable Teddy to us! Oh, that sweet face! You & Teddy are so blessed to have found one another! :D

    Wishing you good luck with your cataract surgery! My dad had both eyes done a little over a year ago & he was pleasantly surprised at how quickly things were done. He had no complications. I’m sure yours will go very well, too.

    Jacki — love the photo of your precious furbabies! 8)

    People abandoning pets….not good at all….well, that’s a whole other conversation. :(
