Pitter-Patter

As mentioned in my previous post, the silence in our house was deafening with the absence of Simon's everyday sounds.  The pitter-patter of his little paws on the hardwoods, the lapping of water as he drank from his water bowl, whimpers by the back door letting us know he had to go out (he still knew how to get everywhere despite his blindness), his soft breathing in between us while we all slept in "his" bed.  Such a little guy he was, but his presence was huge.  That silence led me to start searching the internet for Yorkie breeders.  Not to necessarily bring home another any time soon but to gather names.  Hubby requested we wait a little while, at least through the holidays before starting the "search".  I agreed.  BUT.....it never occurred to me that because it was right before the holidays, breeders would have litters ready and waiting for new parents to come, look, choose and take!  How can anyone ignore a gift horse like that?  So, of course, I convinced hubby to take a drive and have a look with me. 

Here's the outcome.....meet Miles!


 all 3.5 lbs. of him

we've had him almost 6 weeks now and he just turned 5 months old last week

he's definitely a handful, in every sense of the word,
but he's been wiggling his way into our hearts, regardless.
who could stay mad at a face like that?

 take a look at the cheeky little devil a few days after we brought him home....

I'm sure you'll be seeing a lot more of Miles!

until next time,
