Oscar and his sister Lady :D

Hello all!

I haven't been around in a long time, but I'm back. :D

Here are some pictures of my sweet pups. Oscar is 4, and he is a Shih Tzu. Lady is 7 and a Golden Retriever mix.

We adopted Lady from the SPCA a few months ago and she is fitting in so well. Lady was seized from a man who had 17 dogs and no heat or hot water. She is well trained though, and a joy to have around. :D

Oscar was TERRIFIED of Lady when we went to get her at the SPCA....but as she cried on the drive home, he looked at her with such curiousity, he almost seemed to be concerned for her. :lovestruck:

They have had a few moments of tension as they worked out who was the top dog between the two of them (with me as the ultimate leader) and Lady has come out on top. Oscar seems content to allow her to lead, as he is insecure most of the time anyhow, and looks to her now to see how to react to certain situations. He is actually a better dog now that we have Lady, as she is calm with people, and friendly with other dogs (not a trait Oscar possessed. ) He is less fearful with her by his side, and barks much less now. One time we went to the dog park and a dog Lady's size barrel rolled Oscar...Lady jumped right in the middle of the two and growled the big dog off. Oscar has literally been by her side since that day. LOL

Anyhow, sorry for the book but we are sooo pleased with Lady, and how much she has enriched our lives. We had gotten a puppy (Lhasa Apso) last year from a woman who rescued her from a puppy mill, and she bit my son badly. We rehomed her to a family with no children under 16 and she is doing much better. It was so heartbreaking to have to give her up. :cry:

We think Lady is mixed with Husky, because we saw another dog that looked just like her and that is the two breeds it was. Any thoughts?

Napping with my son (this happens A LOT) :cloud9:

(sorry the pics are so big!) :o
