We did it! we bought our very first puppy! This has been an ongoing decision for quite some time now, and I never thought we would actually get one, but now we do. His name is Texas Ranger, but we just call him ranger. Ranger is a Yorkie/Maltese mix. See it worked out perfectly for us because I wanted a Yorkie, obviously to follow in my mom and sisters footsteps, and Dan wanted a Maltese. We ended up finding a breeder who had mixed dogs that were breaded from pure Yorke's, and pure Maltese making a MORKIE! He simply is the cutest thing in the world, and follows Dan and I around where ever we go. We really have no idea what we are doing but so far he seems to be doing really well.
He is so much fun!
