Shih Tzu Nearly St. Patrick’s Day

Again, nearly a month has gone by since we last posted! We posted right before Valentine’s Day and now it is nearly St. Patrick’s Day! We have had a house guest, my step­daugh­ter Can­dace, for nearly a month. At first, the shih tzus weren’t sure what to think and barked as if she were an intruder, every time she came through the door or down the stairs, much like they did with John when they got here. Now, how­ever, they have three peo­ple that they trust. She is another dog walker and she pro­vides them with food, so she must be okay. They will even allow her to pet them on occasion.

Flower in bathtubI decided to con­tinue try­ing to bathe the shih tzus in the tub, par­tic­u­larly since Nigel gets so scared in the sink. I have only exper­i­mented on Flower lately, how­ever. I was amazed at how calmly she sat there, for a good ten min­utes, until she decided she’d had enough. It was a far cry from the day in groom­ing school where she looked pos­sessed by a demon.

Red Excalibur DehydratorI broke down and finally bought an Excal­ibur dehy­dra­tor. Since I was splurg­ing, I splurged more and bought a red one! I made the first treats in it yes­ter­day. I decided to try chicken-wrapped apples because they always end up squishy in my last dehy­dra­tor  I was very happy with them! They looked store bought to me.
