What is this!?

My brother Bill is far too practical to like animals. He just sees them as a pain - something to poop, pee and mess up all his nice things. So imagine my surprise when I got to his house and Brooklyn handed me a baby Shitzu. I thought it was a stuffed animal at first and am glad I didn't just drop it.
(please to be ignoring my double chin)
Her name is Lily. Julie and her mom picked her out for Julie's grandma. Her old dog recently died and needs another one. Lily is just 7 or 8 weeks old so Julie is keeping her for a while to potty train her so her grandmother doesn't have to.
She was so fun to play with and cuddle with. She snorts and grunts because of her super stubby snout. She was playing with this chew thing, barked at it, and scared herself with her bark.
I didn't notice until taking these pics, but her eyes point outward. It's too funny. She seems to be able to only use one and a time to focus on things.
I was just there babysitting Hailey and Brooklyn and they went to bed at 8:30, so I got to spend a couple of hours just playing with the puppy. She was a lot of fun.
