I want you all to meet Mr Chuckles M. McNuckles ;o)


I know what you are thinking, this creature has to be an Ewok. ;o)


In homage to all my friends that have sites dedicated to their pets and animals in general, I thought I would introduce you all to a very spoiled brat. My Shitzu. ;o)

Here is a fact that many of you may not know about this breed of dog, they think that they can fly. You have to be very careful to leave a shitzu on anything more than a foot high because no matter how high it is these dogs think that they can jump off and survive the fall. Chuck proved this the other day when he jumped off of my kids bunk bed. The most common injury to this breed of dog is a broken jaw and just for this very reason.

Pets can bring so much happiness to a home. The positivism that animals can bring to us all is invaluable. Unconditional love usually is. Pets are also a great responsibility. Study the kind of pet that you are thinking about getting before you actually purchase one. You want to be sure that you know what you are getting into. Some pets require more care than we are sometimes able to provide.

I am actually planning to buy a pet. I can't blame some of our blogging friends who have subtly influenced me by the love they show to their cats, dogs, etc. (LOL)
Thanks David for this timely post. I learned a lesson here when you said "Study the kind of pet that you are thinking about getting before you actually purchase one."
True enough! ^_^

My puppy looks like an ewok too - he's a little white teacup multipoo. He must think he can fly too because he also jumps off anything no matter how high it is.

Hi June, Yes doing a little homework really saves a lot of heartache in the future. Remember the movie 101 Dalmatians? After that movie came out there was a rush to the pet store to buy a Dalmatian. When people realized that these dogs were bred to be working dogs and needed a lot of space to work off extra energy and not intended to be closed up in small yards or apartments, a lot of these dogs ended up in local Humane Societies. Take care my friend.

Hi Sheila, I grew up with a Teacup Poodle. She was a great pet. Very smart, very spoiled, and a total princess. ;o)I am glad that my kids have a chance to enjoy a great pet like Chuck as well. Take care.

MY Shih Tzu is named Ewoks. If you have been frequenting my other blog, Our Journey To Forever- www.scottzprincess.com. he is often featured there. He's such an adorable and cutie baby. We love him so!

He does look just like an Ewok - how funny :o) You know, size for size I'd think a bunk bed would be the equivalent of a second story rooftop; Yikes - sure glad the little guy didn't get hurt!

Hi Lainy, Congrats again on the success of your contest that completed not to long ago. I got some good laughs when I read the winning entries. ;) Shitzu is a really interesting breed. They really are a very loving dog. We should get Ewoks and Chuck together to socialize sometime. ;)

Hi Jen, You are right. It would almost be like u or me jumping off a roof or something. I grabbed him up after and checked him carefully for any injuries. I was relieved when I saw that he was okay. ;o)

I have a Lhasa and he too is a jumper. He just turned 12 yesterday and is starting to get down in his hips. I had a set of real size stairs built for him to use when going up and down from my bed. He does pretty good climbing the stairs in my house but refuses to use these. He would rather jump up and down from the bed. They are beautifully spoiled, little furry people.
