*April 26/12 Duggie left his loving home to wait at the bridge for his wonderful Dad, he suffered a stroke, his Dad loved him so much*

The Shih Tzu with 9 lives...Duggie was found as a puppy almost dead on the side of the road, he was picked up and his life was spared.  He lived with a family for his short years, and a couple of months ago, he was attacked by a Rottweiller, his eye has been reattached, and he lost 6 teeth.  This precious boy has been with me for a few weeks now, with horrible kennel cough, so had not been able to neuter and shots week he will go in,(Feb 3-6/04) he is almost 100 %...when my vet examined him, his left eye, is blind, and bulging, after talking over his options, it is best to remove his eye, now, he needs daily meds, as it is dry and irritates him, in the future he may get glaucoma, so have decided it is best to remove the eye,  and relieve him of any future discomfort...
With his eye removed, this is what he will look like

The beauty of a Shih Tzu, is still there, to me even more so, since I know all what this baby has endured in his short life.  I adore this dog, he is loving, happy, playful, likes other dogs, men and women he is equally fond of, but no children, I was told he got "irritated" with them after his dog attack, that may have been simply because he was not feeling well, since this boy is a charmer...he loves to sleep cuddled in your arms, loves to paw you for affection, and I think he is fabulous...and now he deserves a home that will always protect him....

This baby had his surgery Feb. 5/04, he had a couple of rough days, with his eye removal and neutering, but he is starting to feel better..his poor eye, so bruised and swollen....he will be ready for a new home around the 20th..
Duggie has a really great new Dad, and ST brother to romp with, thank you Jay for giving this very special boy such a great home, residing in Oak Harbor, WA

  I have learned a lot about Winston in the couple of weeks he has been with me, he is a fabulous dog, kind, loving, endearing, has started to play with my Lhasa girl, tossing toys, and he has a heart of gold, and he loves to share it with me, by cuddling in my arms, following me everywhere, and he is just a great boy...he took time to get to know, he was very reserved, and he may be reserved with some strangers, but once he opens up, you will find one of the most devoted friends...
One of the things I have discovered, is when he is outside of my home, other dogs frighten him, he will try to hide from them, yet with dogs in the house, and strange dogs coming in all the time, he doesn't care, just when outside of the protection of my home..Winston is a very very special boy, who has got my heart wrapped in his paw forever...

All of the babies are doing really well, all have been altered, shots, chipping, cleaned, wormed, and all needed dental...Winston and Victoria, each have one dry eye, and in just a couple of days their eyes looked fantastic, this medication is tacrolimus, and the cost is about $35 month...both will need this for life...they must have endured an early eye injury...
Regis and Leo are both outgoing boys, along with the two girls, Victoria is a bit more reserved than Rosie, and Winston, is just starting to remember what life as a Shih Tzu is like....Shaunessy is quiet for a puppy, and in time he will start acting like a silly boy. 
Winston has a new home, with a great Dad, it broke my heart to adopt Winston, he had wrapped his paws so tightly in my heart, the one, that we thought would be difficult on first meeting, became the most endearing...I miss him...happily residing in Vancouver, B.C. Canada

We are brothers, and together we shall stay, Chip is a Shih Tzu, and Piper is a Shih Tzu/poodle...we both have the same birthday, July 20/03, our family could not care for us, so with the help of some great people, our transport from Owen Sound, Ontario, to Grassie Ontario, and with the help of the President of the Canadian ST club, we got on an airplane and flew to Abbotsford, B.C. and finally to WA...we are the most adorable pair, Chip is a bit more reserved, but he is the lover, Piper wants to be the lover, but he has too many things he has to do, he cuddles with you, but off he must go, and explore the world as all puppies need to do...both are wonderful furbabies, who just need to find that perfect home, to cherish, love and enjoy them...they are great babies...a finer pair you will not find...Piper loves to give Chip kisses, and wash his ears, and you will find at the end of the day, both cuddled together and Piper will have his head laying on Chip, bonded very closely together....this dogs will only be adopted together...
PS...Chip does not photograph well, he is so much more beautiful in person...
Both boys came through their neutering just fine, the vet removed Chip back dewclaws, as he had double dewclaws, and they would be a constant source of problems...he little feet are bandaged up, but he is being a good sport...
These boys now reside in Kirkland, WA with a warm wonderful couple...who will dote on them:-)

*Darling Dusty passed to the bridge July 3/2013, his Mommy and Tiffy miss him so much*

Dustin wants to know the answer,  you bought me as a cute adorable puppy, and than you got tired of me, so you decided to take me to the shelter, but on the way, someone said "oh he is cute, I want him" you handed me over, you did not care who took me, you did not take their name, you gave me away, without a backward did not care what happened to me, that boy you promised to look above, I know who you are, I remember, not once in a year, was I groomed, or cared for, I was found in an abandoned house, in such horrible condition, my fur stank so bad, my nails curled into my pads, I could not see through my fur..I was suffering so horribly, that when animal control found me, they thought I was an old dog...I am less than 3 years old....I am a baby...thankfully the people knew a place for me to go..I am safe now, I looked at my foster Mom, as I was hiding in a corner, ashamed of the way I looked, my skin on fire, my ears burning, hungry, and foster Mom whisked me away, shaved my fur off, three power washing, and medicated baths...cleaned my ears, cut my nails that were curled into my pads, and soothed my itching skin...I feel so much better now....why did you let this happen? I know your name, I hope your dreams are filled with pain, the pain I had to withstand from the neglect you allowed to happen...

Dustin is as will be three in May...he is neutered, shots are current...he does have a tendency to allergies, and will need a good diet, he is a nice boy, who has been through hell in the last year...his coloring is liver and white, and does not have the black rim around the eyes, or the black nose..which is normal for a ST of this coloring...he weighs 13 lbs...

Female/spayed/shots current
App. 6 years old

Lacey was said to be a stray, sorry I don't believe that piece of information, Lacey has no desire to stray anywhere.  When she first arrived, I felt she was very depressed, and not used to living in a multi dog home, but as the days progressed, I have found a sweet and loving girl who loves her food.  She is totally housetrained, and would greatly benefit from some exercise and restricted diet, as she needs to lose a couple of pounds.  She is a nice girl just aching for a nice forever home. She has no problems with other dogs, and can be seen with another furbaby cuddled next to her.  Lacey does have dry eye, and will need daily meds for this.  Lacey got a wonderful new Mom and Dad, who can devote all their time to this spirited girl, residing in Chilliwack, B.C. Canada

Nugget lost her home, due to her elderly Mom not able to care for her.....she is a sweet girl, who follows you around, and sits pretty for attention.  When she first came to live in my foster care, she was not used to a multi dog household, and had a day of adjustment, she likes most other dogs, and will even engage in play, but she will "absolutely" stand up for herself, if another dog gets nasty with her...Nugget does have dry eye, and will need meds everyday for this, she is a nice girl, just wanting her forever home, and not lose it again.  Nugget just had dental done, she actually has yellow teeth, which is caused from either her Mom, while she was in uterus, was given tetracycline, or while she was a puppy and her teeth were forming she was on this, we will never know the right answer to this.  She also had a fatty cyst removed from her side.  Nugget has a nice older couple to dote on her once again, adored and residing in Bellingham, WA
