Okay, so we've had our pup for over a month now, and I am just now making his thread!!! His name is Java, and he is a mutt...shih tzu, poodle, chiuaua, and terrier...not sure what else may be in him. We love him to peices. He has a cool story, or at least I think so. My husband's sister has an 11-year old poodle/shih tzu mix, Dusty, who is the love of her life, lol. She aquired a new dog recently, a chiauau mix who desperately needed a home. Before she could get him fixed, Dusty wound up pregnant...which seemed a miracle in itself considering she is ELEVEN years old!
Dusty is the daughter of Jasper, and Jasper was my husband's beloved dog growing up. He has told me so many stories about Jasper, and was so in love with that dog. He had to put Jasper to sleep due to health issues when Jasper was 14 years old, and my husband still tears up at the memory. Soooo, Dusty's pups are Jasper's bloodline, and we just had to have one. After getting to know the pups (there were four), we fell in love with Java rather quickly. He had the most personality and seemed to love us back.
So here are some photos of my little dude...which was a monumental effort because when I try to photograph him, he thinks I am playing and makes it really hard to get a good shot! These are the best I could do. You can see he already is in need of a haircut...I've tried to trim his facial hair many times and he freaks! We are easing him into it. In the last three pictures he is playing with Pixel, who LOVES playing with him...and Biscuit is up, away from the action, because he is 'too good' for silly puppy play! I love watching Pixel and Java play, they are hilarious, but Biscuit has yet to warm up to this new crazy housemate.
