“I took Sammy up to my mother’s in the Berkshires.

She was a dog breeder years ago, so we knew she could handle the situation.

About six to eight weeks later, my wife talked to my mother and asked for Sammy back.

My mother wasn’t happy, but gave him up willingly.

When I brought Sammy back home, he was fully house trained and we could all enjoy him.”

“I looked at a few puppies at a pet shop and noticed a Bijon Shitzu mix that was on sale because it had been at the store for a long time.

He was four months old, so his cost was reduced.

Sammy was friendly, hypoallergenic and it seemed right.

i surprised both my daughters and they were very excited.

I set up a gated area in the living room with his crate and toys.

We had problems right off the bat because he pooped everywhere, including his crate and gated area.

I tried walking him constantly, but my wife and I weren’t ready to handle a puppy.”
