My menfolk are off camping this weekend with the boy scouts, and I am at home with our brand new puppy. Just picked him up today.
He's a Shih Tzu, and is 11 weeks old. Oh, my, is he adorable. No words exist to describe how cute this little thing is. And he is nameless until the menfolk arrive home tomorrow night.
I'm favoring a couple different ideas for naming him. "Shih Tzu" means "Lion Dog," so there's the obvious moniker of "Simba." The other options: a Chinese name, as this breed is from China originally.
My Grandma had a couple of Shih Tzu's back in the '80s. They were named Toy and Ching. Toy wouldn't work at all for a boy dog, but I do like Ching.
So, here are the options I like best, and hopefullly, my menfolk will like one of them, too.
Yip Ping (Bwahahahahahahahahaha! He yip-barks.)
Okay, I think that's enough for now. Pooperdoggie is currently under my desk, snoozing, by my foot. He's not cute at all.
