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, 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 :)
