… Meet Loca.
Don’t worry… that’s an end to the Ricky Martin references (for today). “Loca” is what we’re calling our new fur baby we adopted over the weekend! Here she is in the car ride home from the pound..
Yup, she’s a rescue. Can you believe it? Who wouldn’t love this face??
And because I know you’re going to ask, the vet says she is most likely a Pomeranian + Yorkie mix, while the general public seems to think she is an Ewok. At just a little over two months old, she weighs in at a staggering 2.5 pounds. Andthat 2.5 pounds of fluff and love has totally won me over.
I have to admit, that when we first got her home I was petrified. For starters, she is ridiculously small. We’re talking, fits in the palm of my hand small and our apartment was far from puppy-proof. She had also just been recently spayed and her sutures on her tummy were still fresh. She just seemed like the most delicate, precious thing and it made me super uneasy.
It wasn’t until two days later that I really began to enjoy her. As she adjusted to her new home, I grew more and more confident that not only could I keep her alive, but that she was exactly where she was always meant to be.
And now… She owns me. Hook, line and sinker. She’s wrecked my husband and I in the best possible way.
She’s very sweet, cuddly and curious. Her favorite toys (despite the many we’ve purchased for her) are cardboard boxes and hair ties and she goes absolutely nuts for blueberries. Crate training is going really well, her first check up with the vet is in a few days and you can bet I’m gonna share all that and more here on the blog.
I wish I could invite every single one of you over for a playdate with my Loca!
