Dog Sitting

Last weekend I got to baby-sit an adorable little Shih Tzu named Roxie. She came to stay with us while her family went to Milwaukee. I had her from Friday night to Sunday afternoon - just enough time to fall in love with her.

For quite a while now, it has been my dream to have a second dog and in particular a girl dog that I could dress up. If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you might remember that I have wanted a girl Shih Tzu and I want to name her Betsey Johnson and I even bought a yellow dog sun dress with no dog to put in it! You can read about that story here.

So when my co-worker, Susan, asked me if I want to dog sit, I jumped on the chance.

This is Roxie

This is the note that Susan's daughter wrote with instructions for taking care of Roxie:

We went to a garage sale on Saturday and she was a featured guest at a barbecue at my girlfriend's house on Sunday

She is very frisky and feminine

Noodles made sure that Roxie knows I am his mommy only!

Roxie is coming back to stay with me next week while her family goes to Yellowstone National Park. I will have her for 10 fabulous days!

Isn't Roxie adorable!

Kristie, I bought those Papyrus cards last year before my self-imposed No Shopping for greeting card ban. I love the design!

Amber, I was dinking around with the design and layout of my blog tonight. The funny thing is the old blog design is still peeking out!

cute pup--- is she a shih-tzu mix? Her face isn't smooshed in like scruffy's!

Lesli said...

Andie, I am not sure. I thought Susan said she was a purebred--but I agree she doesn't have that smooshy face like the Shih Tzu we had when I was in high school!

Awww how cute! I used to have a shih tzu! But we didn't like her with long 'hair' so I used to always cut it... Well, she never complained!
