Last weekend we made a little weekend trip up to North Texas to visit Lori's mom and family and found out about a big trade days being held in McKinney, Texas which was about an hour from where we were in Paris.

So off we go to McKinney to check out the trade days because we enjoy going to them.Well since losing both our dogs she had been kind of looking for an inside dog to replace the Maltese that we lost last year. If you remember, I found an outside dog several weeks ago, Australian Shepherd and Blue Healer mix, and we named him Charlie Brown.The McKinney Trade Days just happened to have an animal section with all kinds of breeds and mixed breeds. We enjoyed looking and cuddling all the puppies but there was one that caught our eye but we went on to the rest of the venders and got ready to leave. Then Lori says let's go back and see if that little Pap-a-tzu male is still there. This is part Pappillion/Shih tzu and was black and white and adorable. As we walked back to the animal section my wife says "if they still have that dog I'm going to buy it." Well they did but now they don't because he is now the newest member of our family so please meet Maxwell.That's Charlie Brown getting to know his baby brother.
