I know I have not said much recently but with the Holidays we were super busy. Also (like the title says) we have a new family member. It's a long story, but I have recently taken in a 9 week old Shih tzu puppy. We were looking to adopt an older small mutterooski but we had been having trouble finding one that would fit in our family. We were willing to be patient and keep looking on petfinder and our local shelter but I had finally convinced a relative to stop breeding her dogs :thumbs up: This is her dogs last litter and then they will be fixed. She asked me to take the runt of the litter because she was having a hard time finding it a wonderful home and she knew Hubby and I will spoil this puppy girl.
I feel guilty that I did not adopt from a shelter :sad: but hubby said we will sponsor one of the ones that we were looking at that was not suitable for us (not good with kids and I babysit in my own home). I know it's not the same but every bit helps I think.
Without further delay, this is our new girl Sparkie (DH named her :p )...
More pics to come after her bath, and many more threads with puppy questions ;)
