I am SOOOO excited. I am having my little bundle shipped to me (the drive is too long for me) from Portland to here in Kelowna next THURSDAY. Her name is Bailey and she's a Mini Longhaired Daschund She's only 3 lbs right now and will grow to about 9. I am used to BIG dogs - my last was a Rottie and I love them to bits but over the past 2 years I have learned that with my new 'lifestyle' of ....well, doing very little.....a small breed dog would be best, and easier. I usually don't like the smaller dogs but this breed is really turning me on to them more and more. I am really happy to have 'someone' to go thru this with now. I have been without a pet for 3 years now Being sick often and not able to work is rough. My boyfriend works and plays lots so I do spend a lot of time by myself.......not anymore!!!
