MEET BOLT, OUR FURRY BALL SHIH TZU






Bolt is our snob but playful Shih Tzu who loves everyone in the house. He is always the first at the door to greet us and shows his bottom for a belly rub. He also gives his favorite squeaky ball as a greeting.



When he was small, he had many health issues. We spent a lot treating his health problems. I think the most challenging one was when he had a blood infection. Bolt ate nothing for two days and his mouth was dry. His vet gave plenty of medicines. He had intravenous fluids (IV) inserted on his foot too. I did not sleep the whole night checking if the IV was intact or he was still breathing. After six months and a new veterinarian, his infection was gone. I am glad it was over now.

He is shy and very small when she came inside the house for the first time.
This little lion is a picky eater. He loves dog food mixed with boiled pork meat. He would finish the whole serving immediately. If his bowl is unmixed, he would just sniff it and turn away. He has that distinctively arrogant look, with head up high and curved tail at the back when turning away. He doesn’t mind skipping meals. If he doesn’t like his meal, he doesn’t care.

He so cute when he has long shiny hair

Though he is small in size, this fluffy buddy is full of personality. He is fond of playing his neon squeaky ball with us. He would drop his toy in front of us. Then we would throw it against the wall. He would run as fast as he could, unmindful of sliding or getting harm in the process. He will catch the toy through his snout and two front feet so he could give it back to us securely.

He is very affectionate. He would follow us around the house. And when we settle down to watch television, we would show his bottom wildly or push his snout on our feet.

Sometimes, he gets too stubborn. He would ignore us when we want him to be inside the house after a routine. It takes a few “COME INSIDE” commands before he will realize we want him to go inside. But he is easy to forgive. How can you not forgive this cute pooch with his long shiny coat flying in the air while running inside the house?


He sports a "summer cut" now because of the hot weather. 
Caring and loving this small pooch is fulfilling and challenging. It lightens my day the moment he wags his tail after a hectic day. Sometimes a tear stain or an irritating cough worries me. Dog cough sounds strangely than humans. But no matter what the situation is, we will always love Bolt by providing him the care and comfort he deserves.

    1. Shih Tzu have temperament though. But they are so huggable and cute, especially if they have long hairs.

  19. Your dogs are so cute! And your shih tzu looks just like ours :) True, these dogs may be a mess sometimes but we still love them very much. Love the summer haircut you've given them as well, it's very hard to groom puppies.

  21. I have a half silky terrier half Jack Russell terrier named Oreo. I remember when we got him he was a bundle of energy. Although he's not quite the same dog he once was. He's now a bit of an oldie. But we love him. And he's been so good for my family.
