Above the post is a picture of Sally and our little Bichon (Aimee) on South Padre Island a few years ago. I want you to see the expression on the dogs face as she was running up and down on the beach, which she loved.
The following is my story of how she came about and our lives together.
I was driving truck across country and having a very hard time of staying awake. I'd drive for 2 or 3 hours and then have to take a nap and the naps got to be 4 hours long. I felt good and not taking any medicines. So I got to thinking that I needed a dog (cheaper than a woman) to ride along with me and make me get out of the truck and etc.
When I was telling Sally she looked at me incredulously as we had 1 doberman at home now. I said I cannot take her. Even with her short hair she sheds way to much and she smells to much like a hound, to ride along in a truck for 10 to 15 hours at a time. AND you don't exercise he she runs. I'd been checking out different breeds and told her I thought I'd like a Bichon Frise. I had to find a picture of one and she said WHY???. They are non shedding, hypoallergenic and relatively smart. She said how much? I said a lot.
Soon we found a family over in Whitehall that had a litter and we took a quick look. They were all little snowballs and as puppies go very cute. 8 weeks old
