I’ve recently started my most wonderful Mini project to date – my beautiful Chihuahua Puppy Lana!
Entering my life on Saturday 28th July, when I met her for the first time at her breeders (Kirsti’s) home, I fell in love with her instantly. Her gorgeous little face, her tiny tiny paws, her beautiful colouring – and the beyond adorable way her back legs seem to go faster than her front!
Staying in touch, exactly like a new mother, I checked in with Kirsti on Monday to make sure Lana was doing well – of course she was…I just couldn’t stop thinking about her!
At this point, Lana was now 8 weeks old, to which Kirsti was more than happy for me to take Lana for her first Puppy Shots – and if the vet okayed it, I could take her home!
Wednesday 1st August was THE day! I collected Lana and took her to her very first vet appointment and then…HOME! (via Pets at Home for some extra kibble and more toys, of course!)
I’ve wished for a Chihuahua for many years, but now, after a very rough first half to 2018 for various reasons, seemed the perfect time.
She is Cream/Wolf Sable, a Girl (of course) and the smallest of her littler – Kirsti said she was surprised Lana hadn’t been chosen already.
But, being a strong believer in fate, I truly do believe everything that has happened over the last 6 months has bought me to Lana.
She was and IS the one! We were waiting for each other.
Now 9 weeks and one day old, it still hasn’t been a week since she came home with me, but it feels like she has been in my life forever.
There is already such character, joy, love and happiness – she is even recognising me when I approach her, getting all wriggly and squeaky with affection!
Oooh…I’ve gone all mushy, but, wouldn’t you if you woke up to this little face each day…?!
In less than a week, my life changed forever.
It’s crazy how proud of her I am – I keep taking photos at every opportunity, just so I don’t miss ANYTHING! 😁
I’m bias of course, but, I still can’t believe how something can be as cute as Lana is, it truly doesn’t seem possible.
Not only is she beautiful, but she is a wonderful companion, helping me through tough days with her endless love and adorable little ways.
She’s also the perfect Mini inspiration, being right by my side when I’m busy working too!
She truly is my best friend! 💕
A slightly emotional post – gosh, what got over me?! – but, every word the truth! 😊
See you again very soon.
