Mischievous little bundles of fluff
Member Name: bumblebee11
Advantages: lovable, great with kids, likes to snuggle.
Disadvantages: don't go near his biscuits
Ever Since I was little I longed for a puppy to call my own but my mam was scared of dogs and wouldn't allow one anywhere near the house never mind let one live there.
When I was 19 I begged and begged when she finally relented she told me I could only get a small breed. I saw a picture of a Shih Tzu and instantly knew that was the dog I would be getting. After tramping about looking in papers for breeders and asking about to be told none left, I finally gave a phone call to one breeder who to my joy "oh yes we have one left" he was delivered on a stormy wet night and I was pacing up and down like I was waiting for a baby to be delivered.
When the knock came I jumped and raced to the door before anyone else could, there he was a tiny bundle of fluff that could fit into my hand. He was a lovely light brown colour with a black mask and white "socks" I named him Rufus although nowadays he gets Ruffie and only goes by his full name when he's being naughty which is often.
We quickly became inseparable and he would spend hours sleeping and snoring softly on my knee when he wasn't looking at me with his big sad eyes to throw his toys so he could chase after them.
He loves to spend time outdoors and adores his "tatters" which is what we call his walks, he loves to play with kids and jumps all over them although he hides from them when he's had enough usually behind the sofa. He hides his biscuits and bones all over the house and growls if anyone goes near them, he loves to snuggle on the couch or in bed and must be as close as he possibly can to you.
We all love Ruffie and he's a big part of our family, he is almost 5 now and I've loved every minute of watching him grow into the lovable little rogue he is now, I don't know what I'd do without my partner in crime.
Summary: I love Shih Tzus, great nature and great company.
