While walking on the W&OD trail in northern Virginia, my husband and I met another couple out walking their dog, the cutest puppy I had ever seen. We chatted with them and discovered the puppy was a mix of a Bichon Frise and toy poodle. Later they emailed us the breeder’s information, whom I immediately contacted. One of her Bichon “mothers” was expecting a litter, and Cindy put me on the list to acquire a female. That began an awesome experience with Cindy. She let me know the day they were born and texted me pictures of the litter so I could pick out my first dog. She continued to text me updates and pictures every 2 weeks until my husband and I picked her up in early May. I am a retired Army veteran and high school English teacher, so this is my first dog. We named her Nutmeg, but I call her Meggie. She is a joy in the lives of my husband and me. As David says, “she is criminally cute.” She was housebroken within 2 weeks (we use the jingle bells hanging from the door knob method). She is playful, intelligent, and affectionate, especially with her own “people” and children of all ages. She never chews furniture and sleeps all night in her crate. She is the BEST dog ever. I feel grateful to have found windy way pups. They are professional and provide all their dogs with nurturing love and medical care from a licensed physician. I just noticed they are expecting a litter of Bichpoo’s for Christmas? Does Meggie need a sister? HMMMMmmmmm!
