Hello, and welcome to my blog. I'm a natural light photographer living in the Boise, Idaho area with my husband and 5 kids.

Our kids have been begging us for a dog ever since our Boxer, Bosco died a year ago. But we keep telling them no. I've been wanting to get a puppy for a while but I just needed to find the perfect one. I found her on Saturday. I was searching the Internet and came across a litter of 8 week old Chihuahua Pug mix puppies in Rigby, Idaho. They were the cutest things ever. I talked to the lady who owned the mama and she was so sweet to answer all my questions. She has two little boys who've been loving the pups since they were born so I knew they were used to kids which was really important to me. My sisters Steph and Tara went and picked out the sweetest little 2 lb 6 oz female and took her home to Steph's house. Then on Monday morning, I drove the girls to Steph's house in Pocatello to pick her up. It was love at 1st sight. She's the sweetest thing in the world. The lets Lily tote her around and will sleep in her arms for hours.

We drove back home yesterday and surprised the boys. I set up the video camera to get their reaction. Lily came walking in holding our new pup, and I said, "Boys, Lily has a surprise for you." When they realized what was going on they were beyond excited. It was like Christmas morning x10. It was so fun to watch. We named her Primrose. Yep, after Primrose Everdeen from the Huger games series. Mason and I loved those books. Prim seems to fit her perfectly. Now we just need to train her. I'd love some house training tips for little dogs if anyone's got em!

The name, the size, everything! She is perfect!

I just told Jason that if we ever get another dog it has to be little, and her name has to be Posy. (Gale's sister) We are the same family!!!!

She is the cutest little dog EVER! I love these pictures of her, she seriously has the most adorable little face I've ever seen. I love her name too, it really fits her perfectly. Your kids are so lucky!!! And what a lucky little pup to be joining such a loving, wonderful family.

Puppy pads are really helpful for little dogs.
