Dog of The Day for 4/29/2012 — Mini Mae 4 yrs Old Jan. 1st — Shih Tzu

“This special bundle of joy joined our family on March 19th, 2009. She was a tiny little furball, when we first saw her she was sleeping in her food dish. We had been looking for a puppy to join our family for over a year, we knew that the breed we wanted was a Shih Tzu. We searched for a while, and none of the dogs that we saw had the personality that we wanted, they either nipped, or barked non-stop.

We were looking for a gentle and quiet spirit to enter our lives. The reason for this is that I just was released from the hospital from an 8 week stay after double bypass, with extreme complications after surgery, and my nerves were rattled, and my stress levels at my job were very high.

When Mini Mae was introduced to us by an acquaintance who knew a breeder of Shih Tzu’s, we fell in love immediately. She was gentle, and not very vocal. But you could see it in her face that she knew that I had been through something serious. She cuddled up to me and nudged my hand to pet her, so I did. She laid there for hours, not moving an inch, unless I stopped petting her, then she would nudge my hand again to pet her. After she knew I was calm she went over to my significant other, and laid down in her lap, being petted, she fell asleep.

We left her at the breeder, and a few days later, my significant other received the phone call saying Mini Mae was ours, I did not know that we were going to bring her into our family, since I was back at my stressful job, first day back after being off for 24 weeks to recover from my surgery. I got home and laid down, and the next thing I knew my hand was being nudged by Mini Mae.

Mini Mae is special to me for two reasons…

1) Unconditional Love…

2) She has become my therapy dog for stress management…

My doctors at the time had told me that if I did not find a way to manage my stress I wouldn’t see my 40th birthday, I was 39 then. Mini Mae saved my life, I am about to celebrate my 44th birthday. My doctors have told me my stress is better controlled, and my health is improving dramatically all because of Mini Mae and he intuition to be able to sense when I am stressed.

The main thing is that Mini Mae had no formal training as a service dog in any way, she just knows when I am stressed, sick or depressed and she keeps me on an even level all the time.

Recently, I became a type I diabetic, Mini Mae also tells me to check my blood sugars when they are too low or high. She licks my hands and face when they are too low, and my feet when they are too high. Again she has had no formal training in these behaviors, she just knows and wants me to take care of myself.

So with that said, here is to MINI MAE, my baby, my best friend, and my SUPERHERO!!!”

Dog of The Day for 4/27/2012 — Bucky age 6 — Shih Tzu

“I got bucky at 5 weeks old, he became part of me the moment I first held him, hes with me 24 hours a day, I would bring him to work with me as I was a truckdriver for canada post. He road shotgun in the passenger seat. we lived in the truck 12 hours a day. I made him a bed in there and had a blanket at my feet where he would nest under me while driving.I had even his own little mini lunch pail whick contained kibble and a little dish with a melting ice cube incase he got thursty… he would set on his pillow like a person and put his arm on the arm rest and watch out the window as we drove the route. He would slither up on to the seat and hug my leg and nap… then slither down the seat to get a snack or drink as I kept his lunch pail on the floor on the passenger side… during my lay over I would nap.. he would then either get up and nap in the small of my back or sit in the driverseat and guard the truck and bark to scare people away… when I was at a stop on delivery and was off loading the truck I would look uptoward the cab and he would be watching my every move through the mirror…when I was done he would allow me exactly 5 minutes to talk to the postel workers and then would from the driver seat put his paws on the horn and start beeping to let me know it was time to leave, everybody thought that was so cute”

Dog of The Day for 4/25/2012 –Higgins & Lola (both 3 mos.) — Shih Tzu

“We had to put both of our Shih Tzu’s (Hyatt and Louise) down on Thanksgiving Eve. They would’ve both been 16 this month. They were our babies and it the most painful thing we’ve ever had to do, but they are together and at peace now. I’m attaching a picture of them.
On a much happier note, we have been blessed to have two new babies in our lives now.
We didn’t go LOOKING for babies that looked like our Hyatt and Louise, but fate works in mysterious ways. We now have Higgins and Lola. I’m attaching a couple pictures of them and you will notice the ”resemblence” : ) They are the new loves of our lives!”
