I am such a sucker. I hear that someone in the office has puppies and is looking for homes for them. Of course I volunteer. I love puppies and Lili needs a playmate. Who cares that at the moment we have 3 cats, 1 fish, 1 dog and 4 kids. With this much chaos, adding one more to the mix doesn't make much of a difference. Or at least that is how I rationalize it to anyone who asks why on earth we got another dog.
Meet Mr. Darcy and you will completely understand. He is a little white ball of fluff. He is just too cute!! He is a maltese, was born 5-21 and probably only weighs a pound or two. The kids adore him. Bella totes him around like one of her stuffed animals. Ryan plays with him all the time (he is such a softie) and Lili... well, Lili is not too sure of him yet. She is putting up with him for now. Our hope is that as Mr Darcy grows, so will Lili's affection for him and they will start to play together.
