Arrival Story: In less than 3 months, I have 3 puppies - Errol, Sabrina, and Shamu, all needing to be fed, groomed and trained, and me, a first time dog owner. So why would I want another one? Well, I didn't. But when Shamu and Sabrina began to play roughly all the time, leaving Errol to watch enviously on the sides. I thought, what the heck. You care for 3 dogs, might as well care for 4. So I began searching for a small-sized female shih tzu to be Errol's playmate. I saw Trishie at the internet, again, and her owner lives in the next town very close to my house. So I called up the owner and he gave me a price that is more expensive than any of the 3 previous ones. So I thought, ok never mind. I don't need another one anyway. But may I just look at her. The owner said sure. And so I did. Big mistake. I took one look at the whitest, most beautiful one I have ever seen. Trishie has a smiling face and the most luminous and beautiful eyes. I fell in love and bought her immediately. She was not small. She grew up to be the biggest one of all and she didn't play with Errol. From when she was a very small puppy, she played with Shamu and Sabrina, both of whom are twice as big as her. The 3 of them left Errol alone, gloomily watching on the sides. Poor Errol. I guess some puppies are born to be lonely. At least he has me and he is the one who follows me everywhere. Anyway, back to Trishie. She turned out to be aloof to humans. She much much preferred the company of dogs. But a session of hand-feeding slowly made her recognize me, but only as her slave.
