   Leave a bone for Teddy

Teddy Bear, Tedster, Tedward, Sweet Sweet Teddy Bear, Mama's Sweet Angel

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

June 14th 1999

"A ride in the car!" and being with his Mama (me). Loves to be blowed dried after a bath. He lays in my lap and I rub him while I blow dry him on low. Everytime I'm done and getting up, he tries to get back in my lap and say's "Hey, I'm not done yet"

I don't think he likes it when his pesky little brother (Henry, a Shih Tzu of course) pulls on his ears and tries to get him to play. He doesn't like the bath. He is not fond of mornings. He goes potty outside and wants to go right back to bed.

Favorite Toy:
Laser Pointer

Favorite Food:
Boneless pork ribs (he only gets a little, but how can I resist), green beans, pupcakes

Favorite Walk:
Probably when we go to Pet Smart or Mud Bay Granary and Dog Events.

Best Tricks:
Sit-up, Say Please

Arrival Story:
I thought going to see Shih Tzu puppies would cheer me up one day. So I looked in the paper and got directions. He was one in a litter of six boys. I picked up the runt and he wiggled in my arms, then I watched for about 15 minutes. I picked up Teddy and he just melted in my arms. Fifteen minutes later I was driving home and I named him "Teddy". Best spur of the moment decision I ever made. He has brought pure joy and love into my life.

Teddy is the best "lounger". He loves to just lay in his berber fleece slumber ball on top of the couch. He is very mellow. He looks up at me with his wonderful eyes that always say "I love you Mama!" He is just so perfect; sweet, affectionate, smart, loving. Oh and SPOILED! I need to start the self help group "People who cannot stop buying things for their dogs". Teddy and Henry have EVERYTHING. I called a pet psychologist to find out which breed and sex would be best for Teddy. I just felt Teddy needed company when I was at work. She said a female Shih Tzu puppy....well I fell in love with another boy "Henry". They snuggle together and play, See pic (Henry is laying his head on top of Teddy). I have never seen two dogs closer.

My Leg Hurts

I woke up my Mama last night because i was shaking and wimpering a bit. It just breaks her heart. She took me to the vet so they could take off the morphine patch and they went ahead and took off the splint and bandage (it was giving me sores). Hopefully I will start to feel better. I don't have much of an appetite now. Mama thinks it will get better after I'm done with my antibiotics. I got 18 stiches and they will come out a week from Monday. We are so happy with this new vet we found. We are going to stick with them for a while.

I had my luxating patella operation today on my left knee. The vet just called Mama and said it went really well. So well in fact that I won't have to stay in my crate for a solid month. The vet said probably just two weeks until the stiches come out. I have to stay overnight at the vet but my Mama is coming by to visit me on her way home. She is going to pick me up in the morning.

She found my wiggly giggly ball and I've been playing with it alot but now it has become Sassy's favorite toy too.


Hey, it's me; the one and only; Sweet, Adorable, Perfect- "TEDDY".

Actually I am pretty humble but my Mama likes to brag. I am having surgery on Feb 8th on my luxating patella. Everything should go well but my Mama is worried about the recovery process. I will have to be crated while she is at work so I don't jump up on the couch. I can't wait to do agility again.
