It was several years in the making but RJ finally convinced us that our family needed at puppy. We welcomed Chewy Junior Sullivan, a 5 pound Shih Tzu on July 22nd. RJ is in heaven! It was the only Christmas gift he wanted and it came a couple months early, on a sunny summer day. The joy for RJ and our family has been wonderful. Despite the slow potty training (which we find out afterwards is no small task for a toy dog), several eaten pairs of Shannon's flip flops, and one chewed and exploded pen all over the hardwood floors, it has been a seamless transition to life with a puppy. The pictures are worth a thousand words!
