Miles

Bulldogs kept popping up everywhere.  I was seeing Bulldogs, hearing about Bulldogs, and last week my BFF Elaina called saying there were Bulldog puppies at our local pet store.  I had been told they were super expensive, so I figured I could never own one, but HAD to get the Bulldog puppy thing out of my system.  So Friday night Steve and I took our 2 oldest nieces to look at puppies.

Never did get to play with a Bulldog.  When I saw how huge they were and how really truly expensive (starting at $2,000), I lost interest pretty quickly.  They are amazing animals, but clearly would not be good for Steve and me (not that we were really looking).   The first dog we held was a Pug puppy.  There was just something about him...

Then we asked to see one of their French Bulldogs...seemed a bit more practical than a regular bulldog.  The pet store staff clearly loved the Frenchy, and were really pushing us to consider him.  He was SO cute.  But he didn't feel right to me, and Steve said he felt the same way.  We both wanted to see that Pug again.

Long story short....

Meet Miles.

Miles Danger Erickson, the newest addition to the Erickson family.  He's one cool pup.  And possibly the cutest living thing on planet earth...but I might be a tad bias.

Puppies are WONDERFUL...I have never made a better decision in my life...but learn from me and KEEP YOUR SHOES FAR OUT OF HIS REACH!! [I know how you cherish them. Hehe. :)] My favorite $80 beautiful ballet flats are gone, thanks to my Chloƫ.

You are going to LOVE Miles more every single day! We have a 2 yr old pug named Bennyfoo. He is adorable and has a tons of personality.

Just be careful, they have a tendency to get overweight quickly.

You will be so happy you picked a pug!

Love bulldogs! They have the cutest ones in my apartment building. French bulldogs are great. And of course, pugs, too.
