I'm new here, hello

Post by navan on Fri Oct 30, 2009 10:30 pm

Hi all,
I have just joined tonight.
I have had Shih Tzu dogs since 1991, bobby my first who died aged 19 on Oct 3rd just 4 weeks ago, I miss him so much and it was the hardest thing To put him to sleep. He was diagnosed with cushing Syndrome when he was 14 and I was told he had about a year to live, he proved them all wrong.
I also got Sam in 1991 but in died 11/9/2001 he had epilepsy since he was 2.
I now have Toby 9 and Max 7. I don't have children was unable to have them and my husband went out and got me Bobby.
I live in co. Meath Ireland

I its great to see someone else from Ireland, I am from Kilkenny and like you had to have my first Shih Tzu put to sleep 2 years ago - not a nice thing to have to do but for their sake it is always the best thing when they are not going to get any better, I had him for nearly 15 years and I missed him so much that I had to have another little guy around the place so I got my Alfie who is now 1 year and 6 months and I love him to bits. Bobby is a lovely name for a dog and I hope he brings you lots of happy times teddy hug

hi piglet hi piglet Hi and a very big welcome from myself and my best Pal Buddy! AND NOW WE ARE THREE!!! I too live in Ireland, living in Dublin. Buddy is my very first four-legged friend. I was introduced to this wonderful breed by my Son's girlfriend who has Bailey. I fell madly in love with him. Well I just had to have one. I wouldn't mind but Bailey was the very first dog I had ever held. We got Buddy and boy oh boy he is the sweetest thing on this planet!!! Ha ha!! I love him to bits and I'm so sorry I didn't have one years ago. Looking forward to seeing some photos. teddy hug

Welcome to you. I'm sorry to hear of Bobby's loss, but 19 is a great age, particularly for a dog with Cushings, and if my dogs live to that ripe old age, then I'd be very proud - he was obviously adored and very well looked after.

We are a nice friendly bunch and love to hear about your news, any questions, and love to see photos of your gang!

I have 3 shih tzu - Ivy, who is 9, Sasha who is 7, and Monty is 2 and a half. All have been show dogs at some point in their lives, Monty is well into his show career at the moment, but all are very much loved and adored pets, and are treated exactly the same way as any pet would - running in fields, swimming in streams and rolling in mud!

The Shih Tzu are a fabulous breed, and I'm sure you'll find everyone on here agrees!

Welcome from me and my to also. Sorry to hear of losing Bobby what a great age. I think this breed is the best ever for me,When I had dogs a long time ago they were Golden Retrievers because my then husband never liked small dogs and now I have a much much better husband and the best dogs and we adore them to bits, such characters.I hope you enjoy your stay on here.

Hello from all of us here too.

One of my gorgeous Scottie girls has just been confirmed Cushings so I am just starting on my journey with her.
She is 6yrs old and I am so hoping that we will have her with us for a few years yet.

Oh.... yes....Shih Tzu..... my little yob darling is Grouch and plenty of character he has too..
He is my first Shih Tzu but will definitely not be my last Very Happy
