Last Sunday we went to look at dogs at a couple shelters nearby. We found an older chihuahua and her puppy. I thought I would want the younger dog, but something just drew me to the mom, named coco. After meeting her for 20 minutes, we decided that we wanted her. We have waited all week, and last night we were able to get her. She is an 11 year old long haired chihuahua that could be a mix. She is really mellow. When we got her she wouldn't stop shivering. She has been great, she's already trained, and she just follows us around and doesn't cause trouble. Her fur is super soft, Tyler even loves to pet her. I have wanted to find a dog to rescue for so long, and it all happened really fast, but I am really happy.
We had decided to call her Winnipeg, but when we were walking out with her, Tyler said gingersnap, and for some reason, it just clicked. I think ginger fits for a grandma like her. She's my new daytime companion!
We graduated from BYU and have now relocated to the east, first to Buffalo and now to State College, PA. Tyler is working on a PhD at Penn State, researching little kids with behavior problems. I keep myself busy with this, that, and the other and all things handmade and am helping Tyler out. It's been fun to explore brand new places!
