  2. That's awesome!!! Just got a second dog 2 days ago, but renember dog training is serious!!! Be sure to begin immediately with obedience training otherwise when he's an adult YOU WILL SUFFER congrats and good luck

  3. Congratulations on your puppy he sure is beautiful. Your also a very beautiful young woman who has faith like I've never seen before!! I do got a question about your hand is it hard getting dressed with only one hand?

  4. Congratulations! Watch dog with rope toys and rawhides when they're getting close to being able to swallow. Also, what him around your orthotics, is that the word for what you use?–My dog chewed up my $300 pair of shoe orthotics. Enjoy him as much as I do mine, she's such a pleasure!

  5. If I were working and I saw you I’d drop everything to go try and talk to you lol I’d become an expert in whatever it is you we’re looking for ???

  6. Congrats Kristie on getting Toto! He's adorable!! I rescued my sweet Shih Tzu Miss Georgie 7 years ago on June 24. She really rescued me. Dogs are amazing! Enjoy raising him. It's not easy but oh so worth it. Also I know you said that squeaky toys are annoying but dogs love them. At least mine does. ????

  7. Buddy seems you've called him that right from the start + he seems to answer to that, hes super cute xx

  8. A few years ago my ex girlfriend got a nine week puppy Malti Poo and everyone had a name that they thought was good and I called it ROMEO for it was a little lover boy and she lived in Romeoville IL. Two tips for you go back to PetSmart and bring puppy to puppy play so the dog gets use to other dogs….they also have classes. Second tip if you ever bring another dog to the house be sure you have a meet outside your home so the two dogs are neutral ground and when you bring your puppy back to your home with the other dog there is no threat to your dog with the other one being in his territory. My ex girlfriend didn't listen to this advice and when he daughter got a puppy two weeks later I was recording the meeting and my ex was loving the daughters new puppy and Romeo bit her in the face and I have this on video

  9. Soo cute ! You should buy him another bag because he doesn’t really have space there and he can suffer from anxiety

  10. U should name him boo or buddy because boo looks like a great name for him and u kept calling him budd and buddy OMG he's so cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!??????

  11. Wonder if she plays video games,one time I beat my cousin one handed with a jigglypuff and all I had to do is switch the button setup.?

  12. I see your channel everywhere this one is viral seriously I see it on my recommend everyday now that I'm watching it I'm subscribing the doggy is so freaking cute and your really beautiful I'm late yeah I know it's bc I'm new and didn't know this video would be interesting bc alot of videos I watched like this was boring but your is really cool love ya videos

  13. Adorable and lovable. My dog is called a cockapoo, he looks a lot like Mr. Obama's dog. His name is Shamrock, and he's so well behaved it's beyond my comprehension. He's loved me when nobody else did, and is with me at all times when I'm not out working. Right now he's snoring (an adorable sound) to my right. I give him the last bite of everything I eat; I feel it an obligation, although of course the food bowl is always filled. He is truly a best friend. It's great you got a dog. Toto? OK Dorothy 🙂 One of my best bosses ever was a magnificent women 10 years my elder and I recall literately skipping through the warehouse with her to the tune of "we're off to see the wizard." I cherish that memory.

    Regardless your dog is adorable and that was a great vid. Thanks buddy.

  14. Please make sure he has all of his injections before he goes out. He shouldn't be outside until he's at least 12 weeks. If you have any questions – please ask. Other than that – he is so cute!

  15. Such a cutie! Dogs teach us so much about love and acceptance. I don't know what I'd do without my little guy.

  16. My mom became a double amputee 3 years ago. She’s still super active and just as awesome. My daughters were inspired to get an “Omega” (my mom’s word for her stumps) puppy. We got a Maltese missing his back foot. We call him Captain (like Pirate) and he’s the best!!!

  17. What a beautiful baby ❤️❤️❤️I love you and him❤️ IT dosent matter If u have lost ur arm its just Your love and careness that wil make j and ur baby strong and perfect❤️❤️❤️??

  18. when i was 8 or so i got a maltese and she was the runt of the liter and she wasn’t expected to survive. we got her in the middle of winter and just put luck it was the coldest winter he have had in a long time. ?so we would have to get up 3 times a night and take her outside. we had to put a little doggy coat on her cause she would get cold. the coat was 3 sizes to big cause she was so small. it was the best thing ever. i still have her and she’s doing amazing

  19. TIP: They will eat anything and everything, make sure he can't get hair ties of any small things that he may eat

    They Can't Eat:
    Cheese
    Chocolate
    Lettuce
    onions
    garlic
    avocado
    anything containing the sweetener xylitol
    coffee and caffeine
    chives
    Raw/under cooked meat
    Grapes and raisins
    Salt and salty snack foods
    Nuts

  20. You kinda remind me of "KELLY WAKASA"! XD  idk why… butt  in my Brain it triggers some familiarity. i have one Question. You are quite carismatic. (I know that a Youtube video issnt always the Straight reality.) Now…. what dose the counterside Looks like?

  21. this is meant to be in the best form possible, but why does she look like the female version of cole sprouse lol.. Love your videos btw

  22. You learn quickly when you have a dog and you go pet shopping that 99% of dog toys squeak… you cannot escape the squeak 😀 he is such a cute little pup, very lucky little pup ^_^

  23. I'm so glad you did not get a chihuahua! I hope you will love your dog for the rest of his live and you will be a great human for him! XxX
