My life as a Shih Tzu Diva

Another Birthday!

I am 16 years old today and mom is thrilled. She never thought, when she adopted me at 9 years old that I would stay with her that long. I was a puppymill breeder when mom rescued me and the vet thought I had too many problems at the time to have a long life.

I beat the odds! I am now 16, happy, still playful, completely deaf, but otherwise very healthy. Mom had bloodwork done on me recently and all my vital organs are normal, no blood pressure, no masses, no glucose, kidney or heart problems, not even a slight heart murmur!

My secret is, excellent food, lots of patience, tons of love and truck loads of hugs and kisses. BOL!

We have a house full!

So many fosters, so very few foster homes for them. Mom is swamped with new rescued dogs. We have 2 very noisy Yorkies right now and they are driving me nuts! They are driving mom and husis bonkers too. They are good babies but together, it's a lethal combination.

Mom says that too many people don't train their pets and when they can't control them, they give them away, abandon them or take them to a shelter. So sad for these babies and only because they were not taught anything and were not given a structure to go by.

It's My Birfday!

So that's what mom and husis were whispering about yesterday. It's my birfday and they both sang me Yappy Birfday. I'm 15 years old today, whatever that means. What mom told us is that she is making squirrel cookies today and we will celebrate my special day.

Even though I am 15 today, I feel like 5. I'm happy and spunky. Mom will take me for a car ride with her and we will go visit our friends at the playcare place. She will buy me a doggie ice cream. Oooohhhh, I can't wait! BOL!

I heard mom talk to my hu-sis tonight and when I got closer, they turned their back and started to whisper. I wonder what it's about. Why are they whispering? What are they whispering about?

Oooohhhhh, this is so intriguing...

Christmas Tag!

I was tagged by the cutie patootie Lucie Goosie.

Here are the Rules:

Each player must write a short note to Santa Paws and list 5 things on their Christmas list this year, then choose 5 pups to tag, and let them know by pawmail or rosette that they have been tagged and to read your diary (or biofield!) for the instructions on how to play. AND... since it's Christmastime give them each 5 bones or other treats.


I've been pretty good this past year if I can say so myself! Whenever something was wrong, I ran to tell mama immediately. I love my siblings, Santa, but I do have to keep them in check, as I am now the one with most years of being in this pack. I was very sad when we lost my brother Pepper in September. Last year, we lost my sweet sister and friend Silky in November, just before Christmas again. It's been a little rough on all of us as we are a very tight pack and it made mom so sad. Anyhoo, Santa, could you make our Christmas happy by answering a couple of our wishes, please?

Here are the things on my CHRISTMAS WISH LIST:
1. I would love a Cozy Cave bed; my sister Sammie too!
2. I also love those chicken treats mom gets us sometimes. How about a year supply just for me? OK... I'll share.
3. Please Santa, destroy the puppymills. That's where I spent the first 9 years of my life and it's horrible.
4. I would love for all the pups, homeless, abandoned, abused and especially the special needs and seniors to have a wonderful forever home and be loved like I am.
5. I would like for all the human kids of this world to be loved and cared for the way they should.

Thank you Santa, I'll be waiting for you patiently.

We went to the Lake!

Wooo Hooo,

Mom took us to the lake for a walk today. It was a gorgeous day and I made a point of exploring every bit of the place! I used to hate to go there back in the days when I was scared of everything. Now, I feel confident enough to try to scare the geese away!

It's mom birthday today and she gave us homemade dog cookies shaped like a squirrel. Whatever the shape, I don't mind. On the other hand, Maddie just hears the word "squirrel" and she goes bananas! When mom called her to get her "squirrel" cookie, she went wild... Aaaahhh! These youngens...


What a mess!

Oh my dog! Everydog is confused in my house these days. Mom and my human sister got in their head to rip the carpet off everywhere in the place. What a ludicrous idea! It was plush and comfy and now we have to lie on wood and tile. It's not fair!

The house is a mess and we can't figure out which chair goes where. Mom said it won't last for long but it's too long already! Pepper is going balistic, Sammie snoops around everywhere, Kinko lies next to mom as she works on the new tiling and Maddie blocks to way, as always. As for my new sis Peeckaboo... oh well, she's a pain in mom's neck. She always tries to sit between her feet and when mom put a baby gate so we can be in the same room she is, Peeckaboo starts a riot. Course my Poodle siblings bark alot when they hear a noise or can't see where mom is. I'm a Tzu! I behave. Mom doesn't call her "Her Highness" for nothing!
