Tz'u Shih / Shih Tzu / Sue Ling Fey

Jenny sent in this photo of Sue Ling Fey, her Shih Tzu. While no dog looks particularly attractive when bathing, Sue adds a certain amount of charm to the event.

Did you know that the Shih Tzu is a Chinese breed? They were bred during the reign of Empress Dowager Tz'u Shih (hence the name) in the 1800s. Well, now you do know, and you can go into the weekend with one more bit of trivia with which to wow your party guests.

Thanks for the photo, Jenny.

I know a haiku about a Shih Tzu:

I went to the zoo.
They had just one ugly dog.
It was a Shih Tzu.

(read aloud for punny badness).

That dog is the ugliest dog in the whole entire world. It must be annoying too. It must run away when a clicking sound is made and poo on couches.

I reserve my comments on the breed because this is someone's behbeh. ;)

Great shot, really. No pet looks good when they are wet. :D

i have a friend who has a dog like this, it is a disaster! pee, poo, bark when no one is besides him (not even 1 sec), the dog poo and bite ppl, and my friend's family allow the dog to do it because they think it's cute and they think the dog is playing with them. when the dog did something wrong (even bite visitors), they give excuses for themselves not blaming the dog, my friend and his family are spoiling the dog, the dog is 1.5 yr old, but still have to use human hand to feed the dog food, ugly ppl and dog!!!

this dog is not ugly at all; its just wet. i have owned two shih tzu's if trained right they're excellent companion; if spoiled, miss treated or punished they're a night mare.
