Quick Bio:
-purebred-dog rescue

January 4th 1996

Food; people with food; sleeping; peeing on expensive rugs; tummy rubs; Law & Order; being admired and praised for my beauty; snuggling; and being Mommy's favorite child (I am the chosen child!)

Joey; prison; dogs; when my nextdoor neighbor calls me "Petal"; when people mock my tongue; allergens and itchiness; the Kissing Machine

Favorite Toy:
Teddy; Tweety; that bastard Shrek; the Paul; and Daddy

Favorite Food:
Peas and carrots; animal crackers; Greenies; Kraft American cheese singles; and dirty Kleenex

Favorite Walk:
Firstly, I really prefer to be carried. However, if I must select a specific walk, it's the one back into the house.

Best Tricks:
Tricks are for whores! I am a lady! ...though I do enjoy peeing in front of Joey, the cavalier across the street, because he will start barking and banging his head against the window. OK, not a trick, but it's pretty damn amusing! Cat impersonations.

Arrival Story:
A few years after Tammy the beagle passed away, Mommy wanted a new dog. She spoke with my doctor to find out which type of dog would be a good fit for her. She really wanted a snuggly lapdog that wouldn't shed so the doctor suggested a stuffed toy or shih tzu. She wisely decided to go for the shih tzu and went to a local breeder -- and there she found me, her bouncing baby girl. (In reality, I was an experienced woman who had spent several years working as a showgirl. Also, I had popped out a few puppies in my teens.) Anyway, there were about 8 shih tzus there with me, but when Mommy walked in, I knew this one was mine. I had to go home with her. She sat down and I walked up to her and draped myself across her lap. Then, I looked at her with my big brown eyes and said, "You are my mommy. Take me away from all these animals." So she did. I drove home on my mommy's lap, where I've been ever since.

I am not spoiled, just well loved. Also, I don't really see myself as arrogant, which is something I have been accused of being. I am just a more highly evolved being than most, which is why I am easily able to manipulate those around me.

Forums Motto:

Blossom passed away this morning. Her health had been deteriorating for some time.

We are devastated and will miss our bebe terribly.

RIP sweet bunny.

I've uploaded the photo of Joey "petting" me. Doesn't he look like a menace? (He's even dressed like a prisoner in those stripy pajamas.)

So that Joey is now spending every Monday with Mommy and me. He is such an intrusion! ...but I'm coping. I figured out a way to keep the focus on me. I always sit with him. Mommy still thinks I am protecting him. From what? Too much attention?

Well, actually, I am protecting him from too much attention. If I sit with him, whenever Mommy comes over, she has to pay attention to me too. It keeps me in the spotlight.

Everyone may think I am neurotic or paranoid, but Nanci took a bunch of pictures of him at our house recently and do you know how many I ended up in? One... and it's just my head peeking around a coffee table. Joey is, of course, the main focus of the photo.

I really don't know what this Joey's draw is. He poops and pees himself and then drools all over the place. Gross.
