The beginning - 7 days old

A bit of a back story here...we have waited years to get a puppy. We have had babies or toddlers for 14 years and now that our baby is 3.5 years old we have decided it was time for a puppy. We picked a Papillon for several reasons. We have a friend at church that breeds them so we put in a request for a girl pup. Of course the mama had four boys. We went to look at them and picked out a healthy fat and happy black and white pup. He is only a week old but we got to hold him and love on him. Then we heard about another puppy. A puppy that was born with a cleft pallet and could not nurse. He is hand fed but is thriving. I of course became attached to him and gave him extra attention. Our friend called us the next day and asked us if we wanted him. We felt that we needed to take him and care for him, that he was meant to be ours. So, he came to his forever home today at 8 days old.

I am going to post pictures and updates everyday of our little pups journey. Okay, I will try.
