My mother breeds Shih Tzu's. Taffy is a Shih Tzu.
My mom also breeds Griffins and Teddy Bears.
Teddy Bears are a mix between a Shih Tzu and another kind of dog that I can't remember the name of.
That is because my mom's beloved first Shih Tzu named Zoe came into our house all prissied up with pink bows in her hair and bejeweled collar and leash and decided she was going to rule the roost. And she pooped on our floor. Twice. Then she went into heat for the first time and my mom put her in little designer bloomers. It was just too much for him.
But... Taffy changed that. Just look at her sweet face. We all fell in love with Taffy. Even Mr. Macchiato. Taffy was born the day before Benny. They are both 18 months old. Taffy has a job right now. She has to have some babies for my mom. But, when she is done, Taffy will come to live with us.
Lu Lu has a kidney problem and we don't know how much longer she will live. She is doing well right now but she has days... We won't get Taffy until Lu Lu passes on. Our friends are worried... they asked Lu Lu if she needed help and they told us they were going to be watching. Then they asked if they could get one of my mom's dogs too.
This is Miss Daisy May. We had a lot of fun playing with her. She is one of the teddy bears. I think her Daddy is a Bischon. Whatever that is. She was an only puppy. That is very rare. In fact, I don't think it had ever happened with any of my mom's dogs before.
