Fill Us Up, Buttercup


After nearly three years of wearing my husband down for a dog, we began looking for a female maltipoo puppy. There were a lot of things going on at the time, and our biggest hesitation was that my son was undergoing Remicade IV infusion, which allows the body to fight off infection and act as a protectant from bacteria and viruses. We decided to have a conversation with his nurse about the possibility of owning a pet. Oddly enough, the nurse’s best friend had a multipoo who had just given birth to pups. The nurse called her friend right away because there was only one female in the litter. On the way home from the hospital, my husband and I decided to stop by to see the puppy. My husband instantly feel in love with her, as did I. We continued visiting her until it was time for her to come home with us. I can honestly say that she has been a wonderful addition to our family. Buttercup is now four years old and we can say that she continues to “fill us up”.

    Your dog is precious…although it is a multipoo it looks just like my cockapoo (Toby).
    My dog has tear stains really bad….doesn’t look like Buttercup doesn’t have this problem..Can you share what you do to relieve this problem? Thanks.
