Shih-Tzu Saturday #10

Happy Saturday! December is finally here and that means Christmas is just weeks away. Is it starting to feel like Christmas where you are? It’s finally getting a little chilly here in Connecticut and we have a snow shower (nothing big) coming Monday morning. Yep, it’s starting to feel like Christmas here. Besides the cold and the snow, you know what else gets me into the Christmas spirit? Christmas cards!

For the past few years I’ve been sending out photo Christmas cards featuring the pups. One of the funnest (is that a word? Not sure) parts of making the Christmas card is the photo shoot and the silly outtakes that won’t be used for the card. Wrangling two pups with short attention spans is hilarious.

This year the pups have donned matching scarves (their Christmas gift last year from my sister-in-law). I love the shot of Billy sticking his tongue out. They move so fast, one minute their looking right at me and it’s the perfect photo and the next moment they’re distracted by something and they’re perched to jump off of the sofa.


Last year I found the most adorable faux fur shrug at TJ Maxx for Susie (I know, but I couldn’t resist) and I knew she had to wear it for her Christmas photo. Luckily the day of her grooming appointment Teresa put the most beautiful bow in Susie’s hair and it was perfect with the shrug. She did look like a Shih-Tzu princess.


Wow! What a big mouth the little guy has. He definitely lived up to his nickname of Silly Billy. What an adorable goof ball.


My Christmas cards are on their way and should be here within a couple of days. What kind of cards to you send? Photo cards? Traditional cards? Handmade cards?

Happy Saturday!
