Sincerely Fro Me to You ~ Milo Age 10 Weeks

My IVF transfer was on 9/11/06. About a week later (this time that same year), Happy Mommy tells me of a French Bulldog puppy for sale in her neck of the woods. Twice Blessed Daddy and I had talked much about getting a Frenchie puppy for about 2 years but were on the fence about it. I asked TBD what did he think? He wasn't exactly for or against it but since we were still waiting to see if I was pregnant or not...we decided to wait. Well...I waited about 2 hours and then made the call and found out that the puppy had just been sold. Not to be I thought. So after a few hours of being bummed, I decided to look on Pet Finder for Frenchie Puppies and this is what I found:

I almost flipped!!! He was the cutest Frenchie puppy I'd ever seen! His name was Langdon. I called the breeder and yes he was still available. I told TBD to look at his sweet little face and that was it. We put down a deposit and bought ourselves a Frenchie. We arranged to pick him up on Friday 9/21 in Pennsylvania.

On Thursday 9/20, we got the call that my test was positive! And my hcg levels were triple what they should've been so we had a feeling right from the start that we were having twins.


On Friday morning, we drove to PA to get Langdon and we promptly changed his name to MILO. This is his picture on the day we brought him home....by the way, the breeder informed us that this litter was done through IVF so we knew right then, it was meant to be...I was having an IVF baby...he was an IVF baby...funny huh?:




Here are a few more pictures after he was in our home and settling in;

So here's to Milo who's our crazy clown dog and such a special part of our family. We're so happy you've been a part of our lives for the past two years!

He is the cutest baby ever! Even if he does make my eyes water and make me sneeze! I still want to hold him!

What a cute puppy. I came from That Famly today. I enjoyed your story...one of my best friends has IVF preemie twins born 10/06.

OK, you have cute kiddies and the cutest dog in the world. I mean, my Labrador is cute, but this little thing may have her beat.

Sweet story. We love dogs in my household.

Oh Milo, even though you can peal wallpaper off the wall with your gas, you chew my fav shoes and you lick me to death, you are fav Frenchie!

Very sweet! I love the beautiful names you picked out for your babies.

We recently got a new puppy after our previous one past away, so I totally understand what a blessing they are.

He is adorable! I don't think I've heard of that breed. Does he stay really small?

He is so cute! Makes me want a dog. Almost.

Oh He is so adorable. Hard to believe he is such a big boy now. If they only stayed little like this forever, oh to dream.
