Little Mouse and Pink Crocs

I have just returned from a trip back "home" to New York. It was only for a week so it seemed like it was hard to pack everything in. But my main concern was finally getting to see the little "Mouse". Mouse, now re-named Zinna, was that special hand fed puppy from Zen's litter 1 1/2 years ago. I have not seen her in person since she left England at 10 weeks.

Zinna has stayed the size of an actual mouse and is officially the smallest sheltie ever produced here at OBay! She is only 10.5" and 7 pounds. That is sheltie breeding for you! You never know what will come out!

Here is a photo of Zinna and me. (If we had any better photos I would show them but we only had my little camera with us.)



And little Zinna's face in a photo taken on our boat trip around the lake. Look at those perfect sheltie ears!



Zinna bought a present for her mum Zen's achievements at the World Champs. Well really I think it was my sister Terry that bought it but I go with what I am told! I have to honestly say I have NEVER seen a dog bed like this before! haha Unfortunately Zen refuses to lay in it and says she was cheated. Her puppies on the other hand love it!

Enjoy!

Itz is most often found in the croc bed with her head hanging over the side. How can that be comfortable?





Zaz likes it also but is more refined in her positioning in the bed!

giggling out loud over here in Michigan! Dogs do the darnest things, and sleeping in weird positions is definitely a Sheltie thing!

Lovely to see 'Little Mouse' again she is so dainty. Love the croc bed so unusual. I think Nancy should have one of those croc beds then she won't have to apologise for getting the croc in every picture!!

I echo what Jo has said...Nancy needs one toooooo!

I'll tell Carolyn that you complimented Zinna's ears! :-)

That bed is amazing, I love it! Glad the puppies like it. Their cousin Jayda likes to sleep upside down in positions that make me hurt just to look at her.

7 lbs - Wow, that's tiny! That's about 2/3 of Raven and not even 1/3 of Jayda. I really need to go to more AKC trials so we can get a photo op of the 3 cousins, it would be a very funny picture!

That has got to be the best present ever, well done little mouse.

Someone at worked asked me if it was a very small dog :)
