The plan was to wait until we got into our house to find a doggie. It's just like they say: when you know, you know! We did a lot of research on what kind of dog we wanted, and we went and looked at a ton. When we met Remy it was love at first sight. We really liked Shih Tzus because they don't shed, they are hypoallergenic, good with kids, cuddly, adorable. We also wanted a small dog. Remington is 2 months old and only weighs 3 pounds! He is a Shih Tzu Toy Poodle mix (Shih Poo), he will only get to about 6-7 pounds, and he is the definition of darls.

It has been an adventure so far crate training, potty training, and just learning his routine. Right now he lives with us and goes to doggie day care at my mom's every day while we are at work. He loves my mom's dog Winslow, even though Winslow is sort of afraid of him. We are so excited to be in our house (in 3 weeks!), where he'll have his own bedroom and plenty of space to run around.

He LOVES to be held. My mom made me a puppy satchel to carry him around in.

We are pretty much in love with him. We feel like a little family now. I like taking care of this sweet thing.
