Since his name was mispronounced several times today....just for you that don't know - "Keyser" is pronounced "Kizer". He's named after the character Keyser Soze in "The Usual Suspects" and that's where the spelling comes from as well.
Anyway, last Sunday - March 22nd - was Keyser's one year anniversary with us. We didn't intend to get another dog...but it just happened. The night before we stopped in "The Pet Store" in Chambersburg, PA and I fell in love with a Puggle. Unfortunately, she had a HUGE price tag and no papers coming with it. Once home, I checked the website for the rescue we had gotten Toby at. They happened to have 3 puggles available - a tan one, a brown & white one and a tri-color. We went up the next day, but had to go up later - which often can mean the dog you're hoping for is gone. I had chosen the brown & white one from the internet. We get there - all 3 are still available; but I kind of liked the tri-color better (we later found out the brown & white one was blind). They get him out for us and we begin the decision. It's a puppy, 2:00 a.m. walks and such...... I'm not kidding when I say that within 5 minutes of us getting him out of the cage....2 other people show up wanting him!!! It was a sign (the same thing happened with Toby) we took him!!
I'd be lying if I said the adjustment was easy - it wasn't. Little puppies are like having babies....but all has been going well and let's just say..."It's A Good Thing He's Cute!"

In case you're wondering....most Puggles that you see are brown with a black face. Puggle's are not pure bred's but are referred to as "designer breeds". Puggles are a cross between a Pug and a Beagle. Keyser is considered a "second generation" Puggle, which means his parentage could be any of the following: Puggle to Puggle, Puggle to Pug or Puggle to Beagle. Coming from a rescue - we really don't know.
