Arrival Story:
Baron came to us at 10 weeks he was the runt of a litter of 6 pups and was also a shy pup. Both of his parents were owened by the breeder and they both seemed to be very nice dogs ant this was there first litter. The mother was a purebread adoptee ( but no papers) and the Dad was a registerd Pup gotten from another local breeder with papers. But Baron has no papers. Not that that matterd to us at all. My boys fell in love with him right away, as i had also. We had been looking at puppies since about the christmas time before we got Baron. But only at pet stores, just trying to figure out what kind of dog we really wanted. And finally had decided on a Shih Tzu because of the Friendliness of the breed. We looked for adoptables also but just didn't see what we were looking for, Mainly because I do Childcare in our home and we needed someone who was Child friendly with no questionable behavior. So we went to see Baron and fell in love with him, and likewise for him..... we find it really hard to think about what life was like before Baron. He has been a wonderful addition to our family.

Bio:
Baron is also active in Several obedience Classes and has proven himself to be a very smart pooch. he is just beginning Agility classes, and soon will be trying Rally. He will also be takeing his first attempt at CGC in April of 09. Baron Speaks to us as if he is trying to comunicate with words, makeing him compleatly irrasistable to his Family.

Changes with back surgery. One day at a time..

In late septemeber 2012 Baron had a little but of back pain that seemed to resolve it'self with rest and meds.
However with in 4 days after being in the clear it started again and seemed to progress, to so much more. We put him on kennel rest and his meds again, but within 2 days he was bedinning to loose mobility in his hind limbs. Our Vet began to consult the University of Minnesota Veterenairy medicine about what to try, (this was on a friday) after being home over the weekend on prednisone, tamedol, sucralfate, famotidine,and gabapentin for 4 days, there was no change Back to the vet on monday morning and off to the U of m within the hour. This is 300 miles from home and the closest place that does Nurology on animals. We arrived about 3;15pm at the hospital and he had an MRI, and was being prepped for surgery by 4PM.. was out of surgery by 7:15 and was wakeing up.. Now the fun begins.
Baron is deffinatly a tough little dog at 4 1/2 yrs old and has so much more to give us that there was no question what we would do for him.. The dr;s said he has about 85% chance of regaining the use of his legs.
of course all of this will take time 6 to 8 weeks of kennel rest, quiet and little excitement. No jumping, etc.. And hope and prying that he will get the use of his legs again. he comes home tomarrow Thursday the 8 th of November. We have missed him. And will deal with things one day at a time.
