It’s Janie’s Raining in Texas or AKA “Rainey!” Remember our sweet little fireball from our Hurricane litter of 2015? Well here she is… all grown up! What a lovely addition to our family! “Rainey” was whelped on June 16, 2015 and is weighing about 7 pounds. She is slightly longer bodied than her body’s height, which is a desirable breed trait. Rainey in a gold/brindle and white parti-color Shih Tzu with a black mask and a black nose. We have been blessed with great things from this little stick of dynamite! Rainey is dual registered with the AKC and UKC. She attended her first show in December 2015 and did so well that in May of 2016 she received her UKC Conformation Championship! The most remembered comment that we have received from a judge on her behalf is their compliments regarding Rainey’s “perfect baseball-shaped skull.” (We realize that may sound odd to those folks who do not participate in the show ring… but it is a desired trait for the Shih Tzu). Rainey has claimed a nice collection of ribbons for her display cabinet! WE are proud of our little fireball…

Rainey produced her first litter of little ones, sired by our own Sugar Paw’s Bourbon For Janie, in 2017. The litter was quite diverse! There was one liver with a black mask and nose puppy; one Bridle and white parti-colored male with a black nose; and two brindle/gold particolored females with each a black and liver nose born. We can’t wait to see how she passes her success on to her babies!
