No, wait. It actually happened. We flew to Sacramento, drove an hour further North, picked up the pup, and drove back about 400 miles back home to Los Angeles. All in one day. It was quite the trek, but worth every minute.

Butters is also coping with his new life, fighting over toys and getting a little jealous, but he loves him to death! Or at least I think he does.

Once you make this, you won’t ever want to have the dip by itself anymore. It was truly destined to be slathered and baked on top of a French bread loaf. And there’s no judgment here if you make a meal out of this. I did it at least twice!
