I am notorious for making compulsive decisions. I have mild ADHD. That and I admit I am spoiled rotten. I get what I want when I want it, eventhough I know I will regret it. When I want something, I dont think about the consequences. I am selfish. VERY.

The very moment we moved in to our very first house together, I reminded my loving hunny, that he promised me, we will get a dog once we have our own place. Just to stop me from going on and on about it, he said, "yes, I have not forgotten. You can start looking for puppies now." Instead of unpacking our house stuff, I went online and searched for "rescues" around our area.

I just want a dog. But DH joked about maybe we should get two. I bet at that moment, he regretted ever joking about it. I immediately picked two puppies from a rescue website, sent an application, phoned them several times and arranged a meeting with the foster home and the puppies.

I have been doing my research about training and housebreaking puppies the minute we decided we were buying a house. I had no doubt in my mind that I can do it. I grew up in a multiple dog household. In my heart, I know I am ready and prepared for it.

Two weeks later after we moved in to our house, when everything else was still in shambles and boxes of stuff were still unopened, we brought home two puppies. CAIN & ABEL.

Friends and families told us we're crazy. One would have been alright according to them. But TWO? What were we thinking? And as if, we haven't heard enough, we decided to add a third, XENA.

I made mistakes in my life. Made decisions I regretted afterwards.

IF getting the dogs is a mistake, THIS IS ONE MISTAKE I am glad I committed.

My dogs are my life, our lives. They are there when everyone else cant be there. :D

BESIDES...

LOOK AT THESE FACES.... WHY WOULD ANYONE REGRET EVER HAVING THEM?

Awwwww!! TOTALLY WORTH IT!!!!!!!!!!! Your pups are absolutely gorgeous and it's clear they BELONG with you!

I have ADD tendencies too, and I wondered whether our spontaneous decision to get two new puppies instead of one was a mistake... but even it were a mistake (which it WASN'T!), I can't imagine a more sweet, cuddly "mistake" that loves to give kisses and tail wags!! I used to think anyone with more than two dogs was slightly kooky... well, call me a kook, then, because I can't imagine life without all three of my wonderful babies!!

Thanks Lizalots, MrsJ and MnR... :D

I am truly thankful that I am able to share this life with such wonderful dogs. I cant honestly imagine what life is like without them. I dont even want to imagine. :D

Mudra, They are far from mistakes, they were meant to be.

Your 'family' is just perfect. I love the pictures, they look gorgeous as ever.

The dogs require a lot of work, but at the end of the day...it is all worth it. Every second of it!
