Meet Kia!

So we got a dog. . . WE GOT A DOG! I had no intention of ever owning a dog.  The boys have wanted one but in our old house there just wasn't enough of a yard for a dog.  Then when we moved here the boys didn't want a dog after picking up all of the previous dogs droppings.  Something happened last Saturday though and the boys decided they wanted a dog.  They asked me if they could get one and I said, "I'll think about it when you guys take care of  all of your chores and responsibilities without me prompting you for an entire week."  To which they immediately replied in unison, "Yay! We're getting a dog on Saturday!"  Hu?!.  Did I miss something?  Well they were very responsible everyday making their beds, cleaning their rooms, taking out the garbages, getting the mail, emptying the dishwasher, and taking care of the chickens.  Darryl could see their excitement and seriousness so he started doing some serious research about different breeds trying to find a dog that would be ideal for our situation-- ie. outdoor dog for Heber weather, smaller, less hairy, and a great dog.  He discovered that the Shiba Inu would be the best fit for us.  We found one on KSL for a super price and we jumped on it.  The boys were out of school for fall break so. . .  we went to get a dog!-- not on Saturday but on Thursday. :)  His name is Kia and though we tried to come up with a new name we just couldn't think of a great new name.  We also figured that after being called Kia for 6 years changing that might be a little mean.  Kia seemed so girly and he's so pretty so we had a hard time thinking of him as a boy and referring to him as a boy but we eventually got it down. ;)
