    Looks like you guys had a beautiful day for a walk. Lots of sunshine and grassy stuff. I think you’ve summed up what a puppy does nicely, they have to learn don’t they. Laceys good at telling Reuben off but Esme is good at playing with him. Jasmine sounds like she’s learning though. Funny how different they all are.

    You have so many exciting adventures. I love that you all go Costa coffee together. Shame about jo pictures, but I completely understand what it’s like with an excited puppy ... i wish I could walk all mine in harmony too, but I somehow think that will never happen to me! Lol

    Tara: it was a fab walk Aunties! Except for when Jasmine cheated and won some of the fights. oh, and she kept rushing up to strangers and sniffing their bottoms! It was a bit rude! I mean, everyone likes a good bottom sniff, don’t they? But Jasmine still thinks she can be a blunder-puppy. And she can’t. Mum keeps telling her she is 6 mumffs old now. And nearly grown up. And she can’t blunder any more and get away with it. They get cross. Paws have started to growl at her when she blunders cos it’s rude, isn’t it? Mum says she will learn. But it is taking a long time!

    I can do it because I know what they've been through and how wonderful their life is going to be from here on in. I know the effort put into cleaning them up, vetting them, including expensive life saving procedures and thoroughly interviewing applicants who want them. We are tough on them (the applicants) - I have a feeling we require more than the usual requirement for taking in foster children. And if I kept everyone that passed through my hands - I could not do it well (nor legally). It is wonderfully rewarding when we get updates and pictures and even when we hear of them going to the Bridge and how much they were loved. It's all good :-)

    Update on the pitiful little transport girl - from the vet's office: "I just sent you her picture.She was spayed and groomed today. She was such a matted mess! She wags her tail and is now running around after her surgery Sorry but we named her Autumn for our first dog of fall. I love the name Snickers though and will use it!!" (I wanted to name her Snickers - chocolate nougat and caramel).

    Sometimes they can be registered pure blood Shih Tzu and if they came from pet breeders (vs show quality breeders), owners may suspect they are not pure Shih Tzu. Once they grow into their own little cute, sweet personalities, you never give it another thought. My first, back in 1987, was bought because my daughter was begging for one. So we went looking and bought the first cute little puppy we found. Later I found out he didn’t look much like a Shih Tzu should but he grew to be the cutest little dog and such a good one. In your case, you adopted from a rescue, such a great opportunity for Lucy!

    Oh so sad - I barely got to see her. When I arrived at the shelter they asked if I had a crate and wanted to bring it in to place her in it. I told them, "yes" but why do I need to bring it in" (that was a new request to me). They said she was very fearful and aggressive to anyone coming close enough to touch her . Anyway I did it, brought in the large crate. They brought her out completely wrapped in a warm throw, in the crate - which we put back in my car. So sad - like handling a wild animal - huge eyes and shaking yet very still. She was completely quiet on the 90 minute transport and no problem being removed by the techs, wrapped in the same warm throw. And.....so.....I left her there. Hateing not to be able to see her where she will be groomed and vetted. I have asked for an update and pictures. She has 2 adopters waiting - hoping they are able to deal with her fearful aggressiveness. She is described as an un-spayed female 2 yrs old. (She had nice white sparkly teeth). A stray no one came to pick up. Sooo - we shall see what we shall see. She seems to be very small.

    Yeah, she’s dirty but I already see the cuteness in her! Happy she’s got a family that wants her! I know you’ll enjoy your time with her.

    He must use magic! I can't even imagine doing that! Wow!

    Haha! Yes. Cato and Tara are quite civilised. Jasmine is still all over the place. It will come with time. We are halfway there though. There is a retired man who walks down our street twice a day with 1 Lab, 1 Jack Russell, 2 Poodles and a Westie. They all trot along in perfect harmony. I am in awe of him and the dogs, but it is certainly something to aim for!

    What a fun adventure! Juggling 3 is a feat for sure but it sounds like they were all well behaved. I wish I could take the 5 out but we always have to choose. I tried once and boy it was a fail! Lol!

    Puppy chaos

    Mum: we took the whole Pack; Dad, myself, Cato, Tara and Jasmine, off to Costa Coffee yesterday after work. It is approx a 1/4 mile walk each way, with an outside seating area. That is about as far as I like walking Cato on tarmac, but they all had a lovely park scamper before breakfast, with Dad, so no one was missing out on sniffs or off lead racing today. No pics, sorry. Juggling excited Jasmine doesn’t leave much time for cameras. Lol Only one table free, and we had to herd 3 curious pups past a table of children to get to our seats. By the time we had settled, our Pack had grown to 7 by the addition of 2 children aged 2 and 7 who chose to sit on the ground with the dogs. Great kids. V gentle. Very sweet. Lots of face licking though. Thankfully their parents have a Patterdale Terrier and consider face licking a necessary feature of doggy interaction. And treat giving (our treats, with our permission). And at one point we had a 4 table conversation, pup photo comparison and we are, apparently, the target of mass jealousy that our dogs all use a cat flap. Haha! Jasmine sat in the water bowl. Twice. She didn’t notice each time. Dad did when it soaked his shoe. Cato wanted to take the 2 year old home with us. Tara decided that sitting under Dad’s chair was a good idea - until the treats came out. Jasmine loves everybody. The 7 year old wants 20 pugs and ‘teddy bear dogs’. But she would settle for Cato, Tara and Jasmine. Dad stayed v v v quiet and hoped no one would notice him. And the girl with the 16 week old Staffy pup doesn’t believe she will ever be able to take him out for a coffee, because she can’t believe he will ever behave as well as our troops did. Oh the irony. And I didn’t get to read any of my book!

    I don't know how old yet or why she's in the shelter. Maybe I can find out more when I pick her up. Some of you may remember the "raid" I was involved in rescuing 30+ Shih Tzus from a hoarder. This is the same shelter and all those puppies were black and white. https://chattertzu.com/forums/index.php?/topic/22323-skulking-around-to-try-and-rescue-shih-tzus-from-a-hoarder/

    Going to pick up this dirty sweetie tomorrow from a shelter and drive her to the vet. I don't get to foster......sigh, because she has 2 adopters lined up. But at least I get to spend a couple of hours with her. And a short while later she will be bathed and groomed and look as pretty as all our pups.
