Arrival Story:
We found ZiggyJ (the puppy formerly known as Jet) on the internet and started wondering if it was the right time to get a baby brother for Clementine. I wrote Heidi Jo, the breeder asking about her puppies, shipping policy, etc. After she replied, I wanted to think about it for a bit and was really considering one of ZiggyJ's littermates - Jagger or Jax. A couple of days later Heidi Jo emailed me to say Jet was the only puppy left. My husband and I looked at his picture and considered him for a couple of days before commiting but I'm so glad we did! Jet (now known as ZiggyJ) is a delightful little guy. He loves to go out for walks and car rides. He plays hard when he plays but rests well when he rests. He's been excellent in all his training classes. He gets along with other dogs and he loves all people, especially kids. Even though he wasn't my first choice (sshhhhh, don't tell him), I believe all things happen for a reason and and I believe ZiggyJ was born just for us!

Born in North Dakota, now living in the San Francisco bay area. His doggie momma is a Shih Tzu/Bichon mix, sort of a soft silver color and doggie daddy is a black and white Shih Tzu. ZiggyJ has a soft black coat with white markings and whispers of soft brown around his nose and mouth that make him look like he's been eating chocolate. Weighing in at nearly 20 pounds, he's bigger than both his parents but his size is exactly right for our household.

Forums Motto:
Treats-good, baths-bad.

Mom and Dad became something called "fosters" for something called the "OK Yorkie Rescue". I figured it would be something cool, but something happened that does NOT make me happy.

The other day, some lady came by and brought in this THING. Mom and Dad call it "Pepper", and they say his our foster dog. Ok first, he smelled REALLY bad when he first got here. Mom got him bathed, and he smells ok now, but wait ... there's more.

He runs around and keeps bumping into me. He snarls at me and makes me ruff back, which I'm not too fond of. He also seems like he's going to take my bully stick, which is simply NOT cool.

On top of everything else, he takes up an enormous amount of space in the bed. Ugh.

Could someone PLEASE take this thing away from us? I'm sure he would be just fine in your house, just not mine. You can contact my Mom or Dad, or take a look at the OK Yorkie Rescue site (http://www.okyorkierescue.org/).


I passed the test!

Well, first Mom has to pass her Dept of Justice background check and I have to get a health exam tomorrow (yuck) but after that we'll be assigned toa mentor team and get to start visiting folks in a nursing home not too far away. Mom was soooo excited and I got extra pieces of my favorite treats for being an extra good boy today! Yaaaayyyyyy!!!!!
