Hipster Puppy

You know how some girls get baby fever? Kinda like Tina Fey seeing babies everywhere in "Baby Mama"? Well, I get puppy fever and I've had it bad this last week. I'm going to blame Annie for this because she got an internship/ grew up and got a cat which made me realize that once I grow up and get a job, I can a get a dog.

So now I've been browsing the web, looking at different breeds. Honestly, I don't mind mutts. My favorite dog, Odie, was a mix between a chow chow and black lab and he was the best dog ever! But I happened upon another interesting mix: puggles. I'm not exactly fond of pugs or beagles, but puggles seem too freakin' adorable. Plus, they're a small dog that doesn't yap. That's a dream dog to me.


The down side is that they're apparently very popular among movie stars, at least according to puggle-dogs.net, but the breed is still fairly new and therefore, unknown. I'm pretty sure some hipster could say "it's a breed you've never heard of."  And I just don't want a "trendy" dog. I want a good dog. What do you think? Should I get a hipster puppy?

They range between 15 and 30 pounds. I've been looking at pictures of puppies and grown dogs and I can't tell much of a difference. It's like they are perpetual puppies, at least in appearance.

That is the cutest puppy ever! I was going to get a cat but now you've made me want a puppy.

Hahaha. I'm glad I've infected everyone with the pet bug. It's extremely contagious.

And, oh my goodness, you should totally get a puggle. That is the cutest looking dog ever. I mean, look at that face! He would love you foreveeeerrr!!!!

Puggles are absolutely adorable. Just remember they come from beagles and pugs. Pugs are very cool dogs. Beagles - not so much. You may not get yapping, but baying is a definite possibility. Think hard about this one - your dog-training aunt :)
