I am about to do a BAD thing
instead of spending my Money on bills, food or yarn
I am about to buy a Puppy for my 2 daughters (ages 9 and 12)
a baby Jack Russell Terrier
found a Breeder, but I do not think its a puppy farm
we shall see
no matter what she will be fixed within 2 months
my Brother got one, and the kids have been GA - GA
and with all we have been through with my eldest daughter
they deserve something to love them unconditionally besides me

My favorite breed. Here's mine.

How old are your 2 daughters? I ask because JRTs typically don't do well with children. Also... the JRT website.

WOW! Do the kids know???

You won't regret choosing the puppy over bills and, dare I say, yarn?!

Send a picture when the new "baby" arrives.

the kids will not know until they see the pups
I am not very good at keeping secrets
but I M trying
already lied by omition once to my kid (I hate lying)
but the breeder was willing to adjust his whole day tomorrow, I told him to take care of his farm animals (New horse), and i would see him monday instead. He sounded WAY greatful to hear that.

I am so totally psyched for you. I remember being so anxious while I counted down the days until I got Molly about a month ago.

You are in for so much fun! Grab a camera and capture the look on your kids' faces! Priceless...

Shih Tzu are really great they do not shed because they have hair not fur.
You can see my pooch in my signature!

I second the previous post.

Getting an animal is NEVER a bad thing to do. (of course I am quite biased when it comes to dogs. Well, any animal really) They need a home too. It's a wonderful learning experience every child should have....

Congrats!!

If it makes you feel any better, I just did the same thing 4 weeks ago. I adopted a lab retriever. He is 10 weeks old now and keeps me quite busy. I can't really afford it but I'm hopeful that I will get a job soon to pay the bills. Vets can be pretty expensive. It's really bad. I'm just charging everything for now.

The funny thing is that I have all these health issues that I should take care of but I don't because I don't have the money. However, I just went ahead and got a dog...people think I'm insane but my son deserves a dog. He's been begging for one for the longest time. Pets are so wonderful to have...They bring so much happiness...I just love them!!! Money for bills and yarn will come eventually.

Your kids will have a blast!!!
