A New Member of the Young family!!

This is Charger our new Shih Tzu puppy! My camera is on some weird setting so the pictures aren't very good. I need to sit down and figure out what buttons I pushed!
We wrapped him up and put him under the tree for an early present for the kids.

The boys were so excited!!

Jana wasn't too sure, but she loves him now!

Poor puppy! Caden will seriously love him to death!

Look at all these boys!!

So We decided to get the boys a puppy for Christmas, but we had to give it to them early because he was ready to come home and needs to be potty trained. Shay's friend had puppies for sale and gave us a super good deal on this little guy. We bought him back in Oct. and kept it a secret from the boys until he was ready to come home. On Monday night we decorated the tree and Shay pretended to go get more lights for the tree. I took the boys up stairs while he wrapped Charger in a box and put him under our newly decorated tree. Shay called the boys down and Charger started barking. The boys went over to the box, very confused, and stood there looking at it. Shay told them that was their Christmas present from Mom and Dad. They opened it and were so EXCITED! They were jumping up and down and hugging us. They love him! We have never had a dog so this is all new for us. He is such a good little puppy. We are loving it!

That is so fun!! We just got a puppy a few months ago too, and it has been so fun to have her in our family. There have been accidents and barking, of course, but for the most part the puppy has been really fun for us. If you need any tips, let us know. Not that we're experts, but we have been through the first few months at least already. Good luck with Charger!

Good luck with your new arrival. Charger is a beautiful little puppy!!! For Thanksgiving we had three dogs in our home, one 3 year old and two puppies. What an experianc that was. They are soooo fun to have around, but they do have their challenges. Congratulations on your new addition to your home and wishing you a Happy Holiday Season!!!
