Favorite Walk: Stormy loves to go for a walk at the park by the lake. She loves watching the ducks on the lake.
Best Tricks: Stands on hind legs and walks like a human across the kitchen.
Arrival Story: Stormy was my birthday present. I wanted a different breed other than my Yorkies and lab. I wanted a Shih Tzu because they are little clowns.
Bio: Stormy won the Sergeants Splish Splash Photo Contest. We are very proud of her. Stormy has also had her picture shown on the Today Show and was on their web site for a whole month. She just finished obedience class (4/29) and came home with a blue ribbon. Now she will start training to become a Therapy Dog. Stormy's picture was shown in Times Square on June 19, 2008. Stormy is now a working Service/Therapy Dog with her CGC title. She continues to train all the time.
My last therapy visit was called Pet A Pup To Destress. I attended OIT College in Klamath Falls Oregon. The program allowes the students to come and relax with us therapy dogs. The college doesn't allow dogs on campus so the students that live there are without their fur babies. That's where we come in. My therapy group Angels In Whiskers are invited every semester during final week. The students come and relax between studying and taking finales. It's such a wonderful program.
We get so much love from these kids. They are missing their own babies and just enjoy hugging, petting and rolling on the floor with us. I don't mind all the attention and the massages. Humans pay for such things.
Mom enjoys talking with the students about their pets at home. It helps them to tell stories about their babies. They light up while talking about them.
The students thank us for coming and sharing our time with them. We sure enjoy it as much as they do. What a wonderful way to spend a day.
Mom finally found us a new sister. We got her yesterday. Her name is Kaylee. She is a Mini Aussie. We are all excited about having her in the family. She won't be much larger than I am. I hope we will be the best of friends. So far she has been here one night. She slept all night long and didn't get up until 8 this morning. Mom was happy about that. We like to sleep in late. Our Dad works nights. Kaylee has her own page also. Please go over and take a look at her. Shih Tzu Hugs, Stormy
Things haven't been the same around here since Saturday. My sister Rosie was very sick and had to go to the Rainbow Bridge. Mom and Dad took her to the vet and they had to make the best decision for her. We are all so sad. Summer Breeze, who is Rosie's daughter, walks around the house crying, looking for her mom. Such a sad sight to see. She doesn't know what's going on. She keeps looking at the doors to see if she's going to come inside. We all have been quite. It happened last May with my brother Nicholas. But he was young. Rosie lived a long life . She would of been 12 in June. Rosie had several litters of pups. Breezy is one of those babies. She loved her babies. She had lost four. So now she is running up there at the bridge with her babies she didn't get to know. She will be so happy to be able to mother them after all this time. Rest in peace my sister. I will always love you. Our hearts are breaking. Your loving sister Stormy
