wings and things


on January 30, 2015

For the last few days we have been babysitting two extraordinary little shih-tzu/godzilla crossed dogs for my beloved nephew.

In the two pictures below you can see that Missy (the littlest of the shih-tzu/godzilla crossed dogs) is an intimidating force. Jack, our Irish terrier, is going to need therapy for bewilderment. Can you see his expression in right corner of the second photo? Poor sweet boofhead!


Blaze, on the other hand (our 10-year-old miniature dachshund) seems to have fallen in love for the first time in his life – with BOTH Missy and Fergie!



But he is a bit overwhelmed.


And a bit tactless.


The bigger of the two shih-zhu/godzillas is named Fergie and, without any reference to the royal family, I have to say that she does exhibit a lack of inhibition in the way she continually interrupts the flirtation between Missy and Blaze. She may need some jealousy therapy, poor girl.I will also have to speak sternly to Blaze about monogamy!

Oh yes and Missy and Fergie disappeared the other day but that is another story!

    Now what a fun job that would be as long as all get along. They are adorable looking

    Those two shih-zhus are like peas in the “pawed.” All the dogs social interrractions sound adorable. What could have been a “ruff” experience turned out to be howling fun!

  3. Dogs’ body language is fun to watch.

  4. Trisha says:

    Poor Blaze, he’s headed for heartbreak. But he’s so cute in his love sickness!

  5. Yvonne says:

    And now, through the wonders of blogs, I’ve found out about the Godzilla dog breed!

    Oh dear, as the royals would say, this post gave me a good laugh! I hope the little missuses don’t leave Blaze heartbroken. And that Jack’s therapy will not need to last too long….

  7. Oh no! I hope you found them Julie! ā¤

    Not my cup of tea I am afraid, I have never had a pet in the course of a long life.

    I hope the two missing are no longer missing….

    When we babysit our grand-dog Henry, there are four dogs in the house. And somehow, that additional, adorable dog insures that I’m outnumbered (I can barely retain some authority over our three!). I wave the white flag..

  11. Jack’s face is hilarious in that second photo!! And I hope they were found safe and sound! And what is the story of the godzilla breeding? Is that the behavior part of them? šŸ™‚

  12. Too cute. Looks like Blaze was trying to get a doggie yoga class going. BOL šŸ˜‰

    You are a bigger person than me! I marvel at homes with multiples…but know myself well enough to know…one is enough! Glad all turned out well with the little miscreants…but next time, perhaps kenneling is the answer. It’s a lot to ask someone to do, watch multiple pets, especially if they have pets of their own. Best intentions…but (no thanks) šŸ™‚

  14. So nice of you to watch the dogs and love the photos of them

  15. The poor man dogs, they are no match for the lady dogs lol
