"We Are Walking" 5-17-13 Day 20..tomorrow we are 3 weeks! ALL Puppies are sold in this Litter. Picks in Cocoa and Alamo's litter of 7 are as follows: Jason: Jason's Girl: Shauna: Caleigh, Malcom: Truffles, Robbie: CocoMo, Dari: Sox, Molly: Reese, Porcha: Oreo
Note About Champion Bloodlines: When I look at a pedigree I count the red names with the CH in front of it as thdicates the dog in the ancestry. There are 65 positions in a 5 generation Pedigree and 23 of those positions have AKC Champion Shih Tzus in them...though there are 8 Dogs that have had some "double duty" so to speak! You may find that the Sire and Dam have some repeated Champion ancestors in their side thast both show in Alamo's pedigree. When I've said there are 23 Champions in Alamo's pedigree, I guess its not "technically" correct as there are 15 separate AKC Champions total on both sides with 8 breedings including with some of the 15 Champions. Breeders use the same Champion to "set" strengths and characteristics thay want in their line, so that the offspring are "closer to AKC standard", so it is a very common practice to "Line Breed". One of my favorite customers brought to my attention that the number 23 did not identify separate champions, so I wanted to clarify the matter. Counting the Champions in Alamos pedigree to 23, which is true, was never meant to mislead that there are 23  specific different champions in Alamo's pedigree. There are 15 Champions which is quite a bit..and 23 Champion Breedings so that about 1/3 of the Breeding activity in Alamo's pedegree was with AKC Champion Shih Tzus...we love our Shih Tzus and what Alamo produces with our girls! His Champion bloodline is a Plus in that it represents he is from "good Stock!". We don't promote that our puppies ARE or ARE NOT Show Quality. We leave that up to those that SHOW and handle AKC Shih Tzu Puppies for the ring. Come see the cute faces at age 3 weeks in this litter..Click HERE!

At 3 1/2 weeks it's the best time to start puppy food IF Puppies show readiness..which ALL these puppies do, by licking puppy food off my fingers..then from the dish!!
SEE more Photos of FIRST solid food on Facebook
May 21. 2013
Early Potty training starts when puppy food starts as Mama no longer likes to clean puppies due to taste change of them eating puppy food now..and her cleaning is what stimulates them to go. So a warm wet cloth rubbed on them gets them to go. Keeping the bedding fresh and clean gets them not to go in their bed..this is how Misty's potty training system works..see Breeder Health Tips page for more info! The Potty park or patch makes for easy transition to Outdoor grass.
First Water bottle and First toy today too!! They grow up so fast, don't they??
First Toy today too!!
Early Socializing..Puppies play amd bite at each other..if one screams loudly the other stops..that way they learn not to bite too hard and why its important to keep your puppy with its litter until 8 weeks (or as close to that as possible). Puppies learn alot from each other and from Mama.

5-22-13 Puppies are on their 2nd day of weaning to puppy food..they had food 4 times today..I tried turning the bowl over and it was easier for now.
Molly and Sunny are in town and visit their sweet "Reese"!
Reese 3 1/2 weeks..cuuute!
Our Puppies are calm and Love to be Held! We believe in Early Daily Socialization to Human Touch!
Note: 5-21-22-23 Puppies are being Bathed and blowed dry after messy meals until they get used to it..a good way to get them comfortable with grooming! We clip nails weekly or more often if needed,,, grooming now and when you take puppy home at 8 weeks will help lessen grooming issues later.We recommend you play with their feet alot and trim face hairs..we gladly show you, if needed.

We removed the whelping box today and replaced with a dog bed. We also placed a small crate with no door for puppies to get used to. They go in and out and even sleep in there. Crate trainign when you get your puppy helps with potty training. We include a copy of best way to potty train and the length of time puppies at various weights and ages can hold their potty..to help you with teaching your puppy to transition to outside, there is info on our health tips page about rewarding the behavior... please visit our Health tips page for lots of great info on training your puppy.

6/17/13 Puppies had their Wellness exam and had their heart rate, respiratory rate, had temperatures taken, were checked for ineigual and umbillical hernias, had their ears, eyes, and teeth checked. They also had a group fecal exam. The fecal was negative for parasytes (worms). They were all healthy and all vitals recorded and included on a signed letter from our Vet. All males had both testicles palpitated. Weights on each pup are posted above on chart. The pups all are on schedule to go home at 8 weeks. This last week is still an important week for the pups to socialize with each other. Here are VET photos taken during examination!! Puppies go home in less than a week..we are so excited for you!!

PUPPIES GO HOME AT 8 WEEKS
June 20-23, 2013​
Shauna, a school teacher here in Texas,  finally gets her "Caleigh"! Back in about February, Shauna had called in on a previous puppy, "Snow..(Coco's sister's, Gnger's baby...a similar looking Akc Chocolate and White, that sold a few days before her call). She wanted a puppy, a female, Chocolate and White. I encouraged her to place an early deposit on a puppy in this litter before we even bred Alamo to Cocoa (as the past several litters we have gotten 2 Akcl liver and whites in each litter)!Shauna placed $100 down and went into 2nd position female on Cocoa's planned litter with Alamo.  Well Congratulations Shauna, God gave you just what you asked for! We are so happy for you. Thanks for trusting us to provide you with a sweet Shih Tzu Puppy.
Caleigh at home in her bed
"Reese" goes home today too!!
Molly and Sunny bring "Honey" for some photos...Honey has had two of her three Puppy shots and has not been around any strange dogs or to any public Dog parks..she is protected like we protect our puppies when they haven't had all their vaccinations. We know that young puppies immunity is not ready for the public until 10 days after their third and final puppy series of shots.​
Molly, Sunny, Reese (now Dutch) and Honey...his gal!
"whisper whisper..you're cute!"
Sunny having a "Puppy Pen Experience!"
Molly has plans for this little guy..he's gonna be a stud. Honey will be one of his gals..she was a puppy I had a deposit on her litter when I was looking for a Red and Molly took my place when we saw I wasn't getting the boy (we have plans to kee two female puppies from Alamo's future litters, so we can retain his champion bloodline in our breeding program). Molly and Sunny, her daughter are pretty excited! They have bred before and this time they are getting AKC puppies to grow into breeding dogs. Reese has inherited Alamo's Champion Bloodline (23 Champion breedings in a 65 dog 5 generation pedigree) so he will be perfect for her Breeding program. I would have kept a male out for later Breeding but can't because he would be related to my females! Congratulation Molly!! We are so happy for you..you have some wonderful puppies to grow!!

Truffles Goes home!
Malcom called me before our December 2012 litter and expressed to me how he desired to have a pup like his childhood brown shih tzu. He came close to placing a deposit on that litter but His bonus's went for car expenses instead. We stayed in touch. Then, finally he could get on this litter for pick of litter male with a $100 deposit. Those bonus’ came in handy for his choice of male puppies.. He had 5 males to choose from and was torn between Truffles and CocoMo. The photos of Truffles were enough to win his heart! We are so happy to help him fulfill this dream.

Railcar (above)...Jews were treated like animals by Hitler's third Reich, regime with the evil ideology they were creating a "pure race" by destroying Jewish men, women and children. People were told to pack a suitcase and they were crammed inside Rail cars and sent to their auschwitz  to die and the strongest to labor camps. People were stripped and shaved and killed​. 6 Million Murdered including 1.5 million children (mostly upon arrival). The Survivors tell the story of the atrocities of Hitler's soldiers and of their own amazing survival though they watched disease, starvation, and bullets take their own families. The Heroes were those that regardless of the risk to their own lives they rebelled against the wickness and hid Jewish families and children. The Danish saved 1000's because they hid them in their ships and helped them to escape. Unfortuanately, too many stood by, fearing loss of their own lives, and let this evil leader nearly destroy a race. The Lesson here is to remember God's Love for man and to Love him above all and love your neighbor as yourself. "Luke 10:27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself."
Living by God's principles is man's ONLY hope.​
