Our Newest Addition!

Had to share our newest addition! This is Chewy (short for Chewbacca). He's a six week old shih tzu. Isn't he just the cutest thing?

Chewy and Dakota:


Chewy and Mario:


And for size comparison...here is Chewy with a can of Campbell's Soup (regular size can NOT the family size can):


We've only had him a few hours but he's doing great. I think this was a good age with the kids. They are old enough to love having a puppy but also old enough to be gentle with him and help with him. The Mom and Dad were both under 10 pounds so this guy should stay pretty small. He is dwarfed by our regular shih tzu and you should see him next to the shepherd/chow mix! Luckily she is the most docile creature on earth.

Anyways, just had to share! I'm so happy to have him!
