We were heading back from the NC house, which is still on the market, and decided to visit the pet shops in the area. Myron had made a promise to Sarah some time back that we would get a dog this Summer when they would have time to play with it and help take care of it. So he decided this weekend was the time to fulfill that promise.
We bought a Shih Tzu, male, born 5/12/10. When we got in the van, I said "we need to come up with a name." Bethany immediately says "Butterscotch". Everyone agreed and so it was set.
We spent a little time in the yard with Butterscotch and I grabbed my camera. The only member of the family that didn't like Butterscotch is Kitty. Yes, we still have Kitty. She lives in the garage and was getting lots of attention until Butterscotch came along.
Potting training the first day went okay. He did have a few accidents in the house but went outside more than inside. That has to be an accomplishment of sorts, right?
