The best advice I could give in life is to adopt a pet. Whatever your fancy whether it be dogs, cats, snakes, birds… just adopt. It will change your life forever and for the better… it did mine anyway.
I’ll never forget the day we adopted Pebbles. Pebbles came into our lives unexpectedly the summer before my first semester of college. She honestly looked a step away from a hot mess when we bought her from the breeder, but she was the best decision Chris & I ever made as a couple.
Breed: Shih Tzu
Nicknames: Pebbleroo, Roo, Rooni, Ruthie
Personality: Diva, Attention-Seeker, Protective, Piggie-Pants
Favorite Thing to Do: Cuddle
If stuck on an island with nothing, her one must have item: Chewstick
Months it took to learn potty training: 6
Roxy came next. Three years of tireless nights playing fetch (literally for hours) with Pebbles, we made the decision to adopt a playmate. We were looking for another Shih Tzu, but found our precious Roxy who happens to be an Affen Tzu.
Nicknames: Roxanne, baby girl, little baby
Personality: Shy, Timid, Sweet
Oddest thing she does: Sneezes and Burps
My favorite toy: Whatever Pebbles is playing with
Months it took to learn potty training: 13… I am now crate trained.
These two little bundles of joy are worth every vet bill, grooming appt., and months of time spent potty training.
Have any questions or comments about my two fur-babies? Comments are welcome!
Until we meet again,
