Meeting Maisie

We've never really had family pets in Utah. Though I did have a fish named Fluffy, but he soon died and was flushed down the toilet. I never had a pet ever again. Well, until now.

Ever since Laika's death, my sister has wanted another dog. My parents vowed to never have on outside dog again, but Dad didn't want an inside dog. This was a problem.  We researched for a while before finding the perfect one for our family. Small, doesn't shed, cute as anything. A West Highland Terrier.
One day Mom said she'd found one, but much to our disappointment, it was sold before we had the chance to investigate. But we continued to search online for available dogs. Yesterday we finally found one.

Today I met her for the first time.
She was completely perfect. She nuzzled up against me, already loving a complete stranger. She likes to cuddle and be held, and is just the sweetest puppy I've ever met. I didn't want to let go. I wanted to just take her home with me right then, but we did have to leave her until she's a week older and when we have all of the necessary supplies. You have no idea how excited we are to have her in our family.

After researching Scottish names, we've decided to name her Maisie. I'm already completely in love with her. :)
