I love what I do,,, really and truly, how amazing is it to meet a family in Columbus at the airport with a little Cavachon bundle of puppy joy, to be part of an amazing surprise for two of the most adorable little girls, to see those precious smiles...
I receive letters in my Inbox almost daily from past Puppy People, pictures at Christmas of silly funny furry all grown up now Cavachons, my babies, now dressed in Santa's outfits, wearing reindeer antlers. Summer photos of my "kids" swimming in the pool, standing with ears flying in the wind, wearing a doggie life preserver, out on the bow of the family boat.
Or letters like this one that bring tears to my eyes, and make the occasional anti-dog breeder missive I get lose a bit of it's sting.
It's funny how you end up at certain places in your life. I saw a video on-line of a Cavachon puppy and wondered, "What is a Cavachon?" I hadn't heard of the breed, so I googled it. It took me the Foxglove Designer Puppies website. After reading a bit about them, I clicked on the "Available Puppies" tab and there she was. This adorable little face that just spoke to me through the screen. I knew I just had to have her. I started working on my husband, who DID not want another dog (we had 2 boxers at the time). I finally won his approval and we went to get her.
Now here's the funny part, instantly my husband took to her and fell head-over-heals in love with her. We both did. But, who wouldn't. She is unlike any other dog I have ever known. She has it all. She let's you hold her like a baby and will actually sleep this way, her tail wags non-stop (even in her sleep at times), she's wicked smart and was potty trained and learned all of her tricks almost immediately. But what I love most are her endearing eyes that is a gateway to her warm and loving personality.
Looking back over the past 2-1/2 years, she has enriched and enhanced our lives so immensely. I can't imagine our lives without her. She IS our four-legged daughter. She goes to work with us each day, travels on the plane with us when we go to our Florida home, and everything in between. We adore her!
I used to think we got soooooo lucky (which I still believe), but my parents now have Callie's cousin and he is proving that it's not just Callie, there is something very special about the breed and about the way Foxglove handles these precious little bundles before they find their forever home.
So, thank you Terry! We are blessed!"

So what in the world you ask my dearest of Puppy People, is that title blurb about MAKING someone buy a puppy??? That my dear friends will require that you take a little journey over to my Agatha's Apothecary Blog where I'm celebrating "National Dog Day" (even I was taken aback at that one lol!)
