I would like to introduce you to new addition to our family...

Hello me lovelies

I want to tell you about our new addition to our family...back in March me and o/h decided we was going to add another pooch to our family but as you all probably might remember at the beginning of April we sadly had to have our staffie put to sleep so we held off in getting another pooch, until i think we were ready to get another after such heart ache.
Well after from lots of begging from our boys to still go ahead with getting our new addition, we finally gave in and got ourselves a gorgeous little Shih Tzu boy, he has now been living with for 3 weeks now...omg he is just amazing little poochie ever, me and my family are so in love with this little man!!

Righto enough of me waffle, here's some photo's of our little man...



 Isn't he a handsome little man!!
He is so cheeky and mischievous it's unbelievable...this little man though has an umbilical hernia which found the other week and may have to have it operated on very soon, its not very big but it's not the smallest either but that doesn't stop this little man getting in so much mischief Lol

Right i best get off because it's very late and my bed is calling...
Thank you for stopping by here and for any sweet comments you may leave me :)
