    It might not be throwback Thursday, but heres an old photo Mama found from our trip last April to Nebraska. We were in Omaha, NE in their downtown, and Mama sat me on a big cow. Look at my face!

    The wind was blowing, and I was thinking, Why am I sitting on this cow?

    Mama just loves my expression in this photo.

    HappyThanksgiving! Did everyone have a good day with their families? I sure did!

    It was a busy day in the kitchen, with me looking cute andMama occasionallygiving me a nibble or two of potato, and even a piece of chicken. How can you resist this adorable face?

    My friend, Chanh the Shih Tzu came over to play. We are always together on all the holidays. Hes black and white like me. Isnt she the sweetest?

    I think I have a more gentle girlie face, and he has a more square, robust and muscular face....

    I have a secret.

    Well, nottoo secret. Ive written about this secret a lot on this blog.

    But the cats out of the bag I am an underwear eater and hoarder.

    I am not sure why I do it. But its a habit Ive had since I was a puppy.

    Happy Halloween! Mama and I hope each and every one of you has a fun time!

    Im a Bumble Bee again this year. I havent been dressed up in this bumble bee costume for like three years! (See the post here, from 2011 when Mama dressed me up as a Bumble Bee on my first Halloween as a grown-up Shih Tzu. I was about one years old.) I do wear the costume well, though!

    (Sorry about the crummy photos. They were taken with our iPhone.)

    Mama dressed up with me (kinda) in match yellow.

    And what do I have...

    Autumn is officially here, with leaves in burnt oranges and yellows falling from the sky. I love the fall leaves, and I especially love peeing on them. They are just begging to be tinkled on! (Of course, I love fire hydrants too!)

    Look at this adorableautumn/orange bow that my groomer gave me. I just got groomed today.AND THEY BRUSHED MY TEETH!

    The groomer said that I did very well, and I was so sweet. I let them do EVERYTHING to me without fussing or any problem.Mama thinks its because I am a...

  • My Newest Habit: Drinking Out of Mommy’s Glass

    from Gracie Lu Shih Tzu

    Wednesday September 24th, 2014 at 09:42 PM


    I have developed this strange habit of drinking out of Mommaswater glass. I like to poke my head into the glass and lick the water. I dont know why, but Mamas water is always so muchtastier and more delicious than my own water bowl.

    Do any of you like to drink out of your mommas glass?

    Also, this is me before my hair cut. I was super fluffy this summer. I am NOT so fluffy now, since I got a hair cut, but I was sure adorable then.

  • Our Sweet Clementine the Calico

    Mama and I would like for you to all know that we do still love our Clementine, my calico cat sister. Even though she doesnt get as much face time as me since this is my blog, after all. So Mama has been feeling guilty that she doesnt take as many photos of Clementine as she does me. Tonight, we fixed this problem. Mom snapped lots of lovely shots of my sisterdoing what she does best lounging around.

    Isnt she so pretty?

    We especially love hercat-stache, just next to her nose. A baby freckle!
