Shih Tzus and Flower

Updated on June 22, 2013

Meet Flower!

Flower is my beautiful Shih Tzu that I adore a lot. I take my dog out for walks ever since 2006 when she became a member of the family. Flower is named after the skunk in Bambi because a black and white Shih Tzu is rarely named Flower. Flower finds herself on the bed often, but only when she is clean. Flower is a great dog to be around and guests love her as she jumps all over them! I want everyone to know all about Flower my glorious dog and Shih Tzus!

About Me

Hello world, I am Marc Guberti, and I love my dog Flower. I have 15 other lenses up now and am a proud squidoo user. I cuddle up with my dog Flower during free time after my work and squidoo. When I come home from any place, Flower waits for me and greets me as I come walking up. I am way more than honored to have Flower as my loved and loving companion!

Where Did I Get Flower

My family and I made Flower a part of our family in 2006 at Breeder's Pick. We were looking at a wide variety of small dogs, and then we stumbled on a Poodle. I wasn't too crazy about the Poodle, so I moved on to the different cages. Sure enough, in the middle cage was Flower who was a young 6 months at the time. Upon seeing her, I wanted to say, "That is MY dog," but we had to get the cages and doggie supplies. Before we left, we got to see Flower in action in a little cage that we could all sit in. Every member of the family loved Flower for her charm, attitude, and energy. So, we asked someone from Breeder's Pick to save Flower for us because we weren't going to take Flower to Petco and get the proper materials. I was against it, but it would have been a long way home for Flower. So, we got the supplies and came back on the same day. Since Flower was my pick, I held her in my arms tight as we left the building to drive Flower to her new home!

Flower's Name

We came up with the name Flower for a black and white Shih Tzu because of the skunk in Bambi. Now, on the way home, we were all saying, "Oh, what are we going to name the dog?" I suggested Crystal, and I am glad that my family turned me down on that one. Now, I didn't know too much about Bambi at the time, so that is why I would have never guessed naming her Flower. I was so happy when we called our Shih Tzu Flower. It is the name that she was called on the first day we got her, and for over 5 years, that is what we have been calling her.

What Do I Love to Do With Flower

I cuddle with Flower and walk her whenever I can. On the day Flower gets a bath, she sleeps with me in my bed. I throw a bone around and play fetch with my dog. She can't fetch tennis balls, but she does bring back the bone. Sometimes, I just sit right at my dog's side and look at her, realizing that she has been a part of my life for over 5 years.

A few of Flower's favorite things

Flower loves to chew her toys, but these were always her favorite, and they are cheap for us too!

Flower loves to chew on her toys, and her lobster chew toys never got too old for her. Flower loves these chew toys the most, so I had to show you what they were about.


What I love most about Flower

She welcomes me and loves me. When I walk up the stairs, she embraces me with licks of joy and jumps up to get a better look at me. Flower expresses her love to everyone in the family, and that is what I love about her. Flower is man's best friend to the max!

Flower's Favorite Bowl

Flower has a pride with her bowls. Flower leaves them protected and doesn't like it when you move them from their original location. Flower won't hiss at you when she doesn't like something though. She's ok with it.

Every dog needs a dog bowl, and Flower loves her dog bowl, so I thought it would be a good idea to show to you what every dog needs and will love, its own personal doggie bowl. With a paw on the bowl, your dog is bound to love it forever just like Flower!


Books About Shih Tzus

I read books all about Shih Tzus to learn more about my dog. I learned many things such as Shih Tzus originated from Tibet. Using these books has made my life easier with my adorable Shih Tzu!

This book is worth spotlighting because I have read this book before and I loved it. This book shows you what a Shih Tzu has to offer for your family, and the recommendations (how many walks, how much food, etc) that will make having a Shih Tzu in the house even easier. I have read this book and have learned many new things about Shih Tzus. I even use some of these methods on Flower!
