Above: An old photo of me with my sister at a young age.
Can you guess which one is me?
Since my website doesn’t include a biography page, I want to share some details about my blood family and early life. I’m sure you are all aware that I am not related to my current family by blood. My blood parents were both Shih Tzus, which makes me a purebred Shih Tzu, I guess. Like me, my blood father was on the smaller end of the size spectrum for our breed (slightly under 10 lbs) and he had a solid white coat like mine.
Oh by the way, here is my blood father.
My blood mother had a ginger coat, which explains why I looked so different as a puppy, before I lost all my colours. Now I look like a girl version of my blood father. 🙁
By the way, here is my blood mother and her ginger coat.
I spent the first eight weeks of my life in Innisfill, Ontario, with my sister and two brothers. I was the alpha of the pack (at least they say I was).
Soon, my current family picked me up and took me on a long car ride to my permanent home. This home had lots of toys and other nice things to chew on, such as shoes and paper towel rolls.
Here is a video that sums up the first few weeks with my current family.
