That’s Amore!



Hey everyone how we doin? I just stopped by Life With The Top Down to introduce myself. My name is Peanut and I just arrived last night. I’m a Maltese/Poodle mix a/k/a as a Maltipoo. My zodiac sign is Leo and I enjoy long walks, squeaky toys and love … lots and lots of love. Don’t let that serious face fool you … I’m just nervous. 

Apparently my other owner loved me so much he decided to let me move in with Lisa and her family. See, he is a hardworking single professional who really couldn’t keep up with all of my needs. Someone had to bring home the bacon, ya know what I mean? 

Well, since my arrival I’ve been having a good time. I still miss my other roommate, but this family seems pretty nice so far. Last night they took me for a long walk and met my Aunt & Uncle who live down the street. A little  guy could get use to this life … just sayin. When we got home I snuggled up with Lisa on the chair to watch a lame predictable LifeTime movie until the kids came home. What we don’t do for these kids….ugh. 


We’re both Leos! Good luck Lisa.

There is a girl here, but I don’t think she’s staying. I keep hearing that we will be “taking her back” on Sunday. As long as I’m part of that “we” I don’t care. She seems nice, but I think she’s still trying to figure me out. Look at this face….it won’t be long. Now the boy, whew he is another story. I thought I had energy, he had me running, jumping, barking and chasing the minute he met me. Oh yea, we’re going to have some fun. Last night I slept in his room, actually in his bed. I think I surprised Lisa this morning when she opened the door. She seemed happy when she saw me cuddled up next to Zac. I heard her mumbling something about “no condoms necessary” whatever that means. 

That guy over there on the right, he got down on the floor with me to make me feel more comfortable. We are already buddies! We were laughing, playing and having a great time. Today he gave me a bath and fluffed my fur. Oh, yes he did. Later he let me sit out front while he did some yard work. It was a win/win decision.


Make sure you mention the new toy…did you say it squeaks?

I really had a full day today. Lisa took me for a few walks. She kept calling me Jillian … sorry, no slackers on my walk. I met some neighbors, took a trip to the pet store, got a new toy, took a little nap and tonight we went for a real long walk. Now I’m sitting with Lisa while she’s types this masterpiece up for me. I think it’s safe to say she is my favorite. 

I’m not sure what it is, but I’m sensing this family needed me in their home. Ever since I got here they seem extra happy. Good looks and a charming personality has a lot of leverage.

Just remember, all you need is Love and a Dog to Enjoy the Ride!

  1. Sounds like a keeper! Congrats!

    1. He looks like Roxy! I was tempted to put gloves on his feet today…lol

      1. He does!!!
        You’ll have to try it, but maybe wait a month or two to traumatize him!

  2. I’m so happy for you all! And “Peanut” is a great name. When he was 2, my son Jacob rode a pony named “Peanut” and for 3 years he would not answer to any other name but “Peanut.” Guys named Peanut are warm and friendly and loving.

    I’m so happy to meet your new ruler!

    1. That is so funny! He is the biggest cuddle bug ever and is indeed already ruling the house. We are so easy…

      1. That’s the way it is supposed to be. May you have many crazy times together.

  3. Cute pup. give him lots of love and he’ll return it ten fold.

    1. He’s so darn cute not to love!

  4. Congrats on Peanut finding you and may you have many happy moments together. A case of life sending you exactly what you need?

  5. What a beautiful new fur baby! And he seems to fit right in. The man on the floor with him isn’t struggling to keep up with his good looks either! You’re a lucky lady.

  9. Hi Peanut… man, I’m glad you showed up! You are about to find out you are one lucky dog. Let me give you an insider’s tip… there are hot dogs in that house.

    1. Thanks for the heads up Ted, that is very good information : )

  10. Congratulations, Peanut! You found yourself a very good home, indeed!

    And Lisa – Congratulations on the new arrival!

  11. Peanut you are an adorable addition to a wonderful family. You are gonna get some big time loving.

  12. Dear Peanut…I am so happy to meet you. From what I understand the house you’re in is better than a 4 star hotel. I’m just curious…is there a mini bar by your basket? The next time I’m in Philadelphia, let’s have lunch. My treat…but if it’s okay, no bacon…I’m a vegetarian. xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox So happy for Top and her familia.

  16. Hi Peanut! This is Shugo, my owner is sitting on her chair crying now, so I will welcome you to your new family. Don’t know why my owner is crying, but she seems very happy to have me welcome you. Have fun and give lots of love, I know this family will give you twice as much love back, they are just that kind of people. Have fun exploring and hope your squeaky toys bring you lots of noise and fun. Can’t wait to hear from you again.

    1. Thank you Shugo! Tell DAF Lisa smiles when she walks me and we’re alone : )
