Arrival Story:
My older sis has a shih tzu and altho I never met him, I loved the puppy-like quality of shih tzus. After seeing an ad for a purebred shih tzu in the SF Chronicle, I drove over 100 miles from home to "see Charlie." Before I knew it, I was driving back home with Charlie in my car.

Charlie is the eldest of 4 male pups. His mom is all black while his dad is all white. This mixture made Charlie brown. He has a single white paw--front, right.

Another Year over!

I can't believe it's been a year since I last wrote my diary entry...Here are some highlights of 2005:

My mom's sister came to visit from Manila this Spring. She has a shih tzu also. His name is Willy. Maybe my cuz, Willy, will be here next Spring. Although my Auntie initially was "cold" with me, she soon warmed up. What can I say? I'm irresistible!

Several family gatherings/reunions happened during the Summer and I made lots of human friends, some even babies!! Most kids are no longer afraid of me! Woohoo! I also met a doggie named Jake. He's a mixed dog, just not sure what breed...even though he's taller than me, I still ran after him to play. That was good exercise!

I had my first dental cleaning in the Summer, too. No one warned me that I had to be sedated! Wow! That anesthesia lasted almost 2 days! For 2 days, I was subdued..."chillin.'" My family members wondered what happened to my hyper personality! But rest assured, I was back to "normal" by day 3. Here's a new photo of myself (the last one down), it's post-dental cleaning. Can I say "cheese" now? You betcha!

I made another doggie friend in the Fall. His name is Mikey. He's from SoCal. My uncle's dog...He's a tiny-four month old, maltese! I'll send him this "blog" so maybe he can be a member of dogster, too! We have some pics together...but won't upload here. My mom has to resize them. Mikey is funny. He thinks he can fool me, but he can't. I met him on Thanksgiving weekend. Did you know that he would chase me around the house but when I chased him back, he would hide behind the couch? Ha! I snatched his bone when he wasn't looking....he he hehehehe....

Of course, my favorite human playmate came again to visit me on Christmas Eve! Maybe it's a tradition now! I played, played, played...and of course, more belly rubs!! He smelled like a dog afterwards! I think he honestly likes me! :)

Christmas was full of surprises for me. I got a nice, soft blanky that helps me sleep so well at night....I got treats, treats, treats....and I also got 2 cool toys. One is a weird-shaped ball that I love chasing around the house, another is Tweety Bird! Love it!!!

I turned 3 this December...I still hump my oversized stuffed dog-playmate, Pluto (I'll get his photo with me here, soon)....and life's still overall, swell.

What more can I ask for?


It's Almost Springtime!

Wow, I can hear the birds chirping and can feel the warmth of the sunshine more these days as I lay under the sun, indoors, of course...must be that Spring's almost here!?

Today was an unusually "warm" day in FogTown, Daly City. I had a few ice chips to keep me cool, but wonder if I'll get a haircut before the actual summer months....maybe so....

It's about time to update my photos here, maybe I'll show off my updated look this weekend....

Till then....


My Christmas...

wow! I love Christmas! Although it's getting chilly here, I love Christmas!

I got plenty of gifts and I gave some out, too! I also got visits from my favorite human playmate. He's my mom's friend and he came with his wife to see me, only me, on Christmas Eve! My heart pounded so fast, he gave me lots and lots of belly rubs. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I gave him and his wife a cat ornament and cat scratch pad. They have a kitty on catster, you see...I hope they liked it...

I gave my favorite auntie, a foot spa!! She used it already and I was sniffing around....she used some nice smelling bubbly. From here on, she'll have nice soft feet that smell good, too! I also gave out aromatherapy stuff and shirts to other members of my human family...

And here's what I received: treats!!! I also got toys! A cute red bone...and a cute rope doll named Ginger. She's hot! And the best gift I got was a nice, soft, cool collar from Eddie Bauer. Grampa gave it to me. It's dark red. Goes really well with my color. I look so handsome!

What do you think I will get for New Year's?? Wow!! I can't wait!!
