Premium Member Shih Tzu
Known by many as a Shih Tzu
All by itself, in it's own cage
One is a zoo, could it be true?

All by itself, in it's own cage
With a cute little smashed in face
I know...Read More

Premium Member From A Woodpecker

Its sharp beak, stuck in his head
Then it flew back up to its nest
As for him, "He'll live!", the doc said!

But his life sure was not easy
To see a bird, was his worst dread
Rarely did...Read More

Thoughts of 20 Years From Now
It’s a funny concept to ponder.
So much has happened
And so much has yet to happen,
Yet, the only thing that exists
Is now.
The only thing that is certain
Is now.
Who knows what life will be like
20 years from now,
2 years from now,
Even 2...Read More

Premium Member RIP PEPPER
Saddened by the loss of my sister’s dog who won everyone’s heart.


On a day not quite warm, he shuts his eyes.
Tears release. Life moves too fast.
Shih Tzu with wings takes flight

The Visit
Go ahead, you freaking coward, I thought. You drove all this way, with your new 6" GPS. Now you’re a bowl of jello who can't ring a bell? I took a deep breath and pushed the buzzer ... nothing. I...Read More

“Do libraries still exist?”
my sister mockingly laughs,
as she pets his royal highness –
Pepper, the Shih Tzu.

I go on to explain in pedantic form,
“Many people still go to the shelves,

Was told by a client to have a Shih-Tzu.
The clerk thought that a personal smear,
And barked insults into the client’s ear
Thus putting himself into deep Shih-Tzu doo.

Fragile Shih tzu pup.
Such large black eyes and thick coat of hair.
Playful in your special pen.

Little boys, oh you little boys, walking by.
Waving your sticks.
Jabbing playfully, laughing.

I stand at my window 
and know that I was never so thoughtless.
Never so...Read More
