Two Texts from owner of TONKA (right) ...From Previous Litter: Tonka at 5 1/2 mos..thanks Mellissa for the Updates!!
"​My precious Tonka!! Got his first haircut today, he was an angel. Weighed today too 8.4#. His hair is getting lighter. It's kinda of cream around his tail and the top of his head. He is very healthy skin coat and teeth. We are so blessed to have him. Needless to say he is very loved and spoiled rotten. A million thanks. Just wanted you to see how beautifully he is growing. :) "

Dam: Cocoa​​
Note: Our Male is Non Fading and female is fading..some will look more milk chocolate, like Tonka..instead of dark chocolate , Like Sire : Alamo due to the Mama's fading​ gene

"So good to hear from you. Tonka is doing great. He has quite the personality, maybe it's just that he is spoiled rotten. LOL. Just took this pic a few days ago he loves to sit on the bathtub ledge while I bathe."

About Lexus a day after she's gone home:
​"She's doing great. No potty accidents, she's going out w/ Baxter. This was this morning. I did get 1 of those potty mats like yours, and put it by the back door. She already knows where that is at and is responding to the bell when Baxter or Mattie hit it. Sooo cute."

Hi Cecelia,
Just a quick note to tell you how much I am enjoying Snow. I've never had a dog this wonderful. I've loved all my little dogs over my life but this one has really captured my heart. She is growing and is the cutest thing. Sometimes she looks so majestic when she walks around and then she romps like a puppy. She's so excited when she sees us and gives us doggie kisses. I love that! She likes to snuggle with me. We get a kick out of watching her explore and run around the house.
I am so glad that she was still available! You are a very special dog breeder and I can tell that your pups are all so high quality. Thanks for all you do to offer such wonderful pets. My heart is so happy !

Caleigh's 3rd Puppy Vaccination
Series to walk her puppy where other dogs (possibly unknown) frequent outside (thereby protecting her from possible exposure to Puppy disease!​​)...Kudos Shauna!
"her eyes are a green brown color..."
Shauna's story: Shauna had called a few litters ago just after Sierra (our Liver and white puppy) sold..she got into 2nd position female on Cocoa's upcoming April 2013 Litter​ desiring a Liver and white female like Sierra...she ended up getting her desire! Caleigh has beautiful markings!! This is a reminder to me that good things come to those who wait!!

He gets to see people and lots of children (which he is great around). I tell everyone about you and your site. Thank you for the cards btw.

4/2014 We HAD plans to keep Alamo's line through his and Rosie's son, Belvedere Bear (above with Dam: Rosie)..but rethought it due to Rosie's Vibrant Red genes..we already have a Red stud "Red" just for her...and need Chocolate line that can guarantee pure Chocolates(not red from her dominant genes) for our Chocolate Lovers! So Bear(16 wks) goes home with Dena to LA...and we got a new boy,AKC Liver and White Romeo, shown right (click his name to see his page) to stud our girls and give us Solid Chocolates with our Solid girls and MAYBE a few Liver and Whites (Like him). We will see! His first breeding will be in 2015 aprox. Summer. He will breed with Rocher, our dark Chocolate girl..her fur is so dark chocolate and soft and he is so thick gorgeous Liver and White... we expect amazing chocolate coats on super cute pups!! We may hold back an AngelKiss/Alamo female puppy to breed later to Romeo so we can still carry on Alamo's champion line! The Lord Blesses!
Dena and 16 wk "Belveder Bear" at Love field Dallas Airport, where I met het with Bear. Dena said that another puppy she had been puppysittiing for (same age) would never had sat so sweetly on her lap like bear did, while we talked in the car. We are so happy we had the privilege of socializing him for 16 weeks.., and he is so sweet, just what she wanted!!She's flying back with him in-cabin to New Orleans now.

Recently one of our dear customers, Cherie lost her husband unexpectedly. Upon her permission to post her texts to me, I'm posting her two texts below as a testimony how the Lord has used Shih Tzus to minister and bless during times of human tragedy. God is good all of the time. Thank you, Cherie,  for touching my heart, for sharing, and for allowing us to share with others who might also be grieving over the lost of their human and or animal companions.

"Oh Cecelia. Our precious Snow stood up for me after the sudden passing of Matt. For the first miracle, all of my dogs were strangely quiet as I and then the medics worked on Matt in our bedroom. Matt actually passed on his hands and knees next to our bed, falling to his knees. I can't help but believe that he was kneeling at the sight of his precious Lord and Savior who had come to take him home.
That evening Snow stood guard at the foot and corner of my bed, barking at every tiny noise. She has been leery of all that have come inside our home these past days, but when a wonderful pastor friend of Matt's stopped by to visit, she curled up under the coffee table and relaxed. Last night when my mother-in- law left to stay in a hotel, Snow finally relaxed and was able to sleep through the night. She is my most faithful companion.
I just wanted to share this with you because although she is now my dog, I know that as you watched her coming into the world, you probably still have a bond with this precious pup. Thank you for her.
The fact that Matt willingly drive to Fort Worth and back in one day so that I could have Snow in my life, showed me how much he loved me. I had lost my last dog and was grieving so deeply. He knew what I needed and gave up a whole day to make my dream come true. That's the kind of husband I had. So sacrificing. He was suffering from poly cystic kidney disease and it was catching up with him. He would have gone through so much pain and suffering in a few years. God rescued him from that. Through my grief, I have to be thankful to God that He loved Matt enough to spare him.
Matt was pastoring at our small church. He was unpaid, just did it because he was called by God to do it after our longtime pastor passed away. He worked as an accountant during the week.

This sweet message came Sunday on FB message, and Yes I do remember Jody who had pick of litter female on one of our past litters..here's what she said about the pup she bought from us:
"Hi Cecilia. I don't know if you remember me but I bought a puppy from you about 2 years ago. I live in Louisiana but you shipped her to North Carolina. I'm happy to report that my Rosie is precious and very healthy and happy! Smart as a whip I might add! I was thinking of getting another puppy and curious about your time frame for availability? Thanks so much. Jody Martin​

Pam sent me a message on FB:
Hi Ceclilia! Watching all your updates on your new litter is so fun! Wanted to give you an update on our precious Lola that has brought our family so much joy & laughter. We love her! (She's from Rosie's litter last year) We get stopped all the time and she walks to school with us every day, drives through carpool, runs errands...a very busy gal!!
She's the best! And I forgot to tell you, Lola is a total burglar, just like her mommy Rosie! She is always nabbing sonething, then proudly running it through the house until we tell her to "drop. " it's so funny!"​

My reply to Valerie: "So happy you love her.. I have to admit the hardest thing I ever did was to rehome her as I remember holding her little body in the palm of my hand when she was born and then 5 great years having her by my side. I'll have to agree she's the best dog ever!! Give cocoa a big hug and kiss for me..knew your home would be as good as mine with all your love for her!! And to be a missionary dog..what an honor!"

Duke (aka: Graham at 8m old) His first road trip photo from Linnzi and FB comment about getting pup from us:
"Linnzi Schieder Cohlmeyer Highly recommend Cecilia Holland my little Duke was so easy to potty train since she starts them early. He is the sweetest and so well behaved. Worth every penny!"​
We think Monroe could look a lot like Duke (above Right) because he is full cousin and his Dam is full sister to Dukes Dam and same Sire is Yogi. Their coloring looked a lot alike when babies. Here is Monroe now and he is available and he could stay darker or lighten in areas like Duke..which is gorgeous gold with chocolate mask. The phot above is probably taken with flash and all other photos show darker fur. here is a copy of comment of one of my past customers:
Vickie Clark Slover "HELLO PEEPS. These are the smartest, even tempered, most lovable pups you will find. Whose baby at 8 1/2 weeks is already leash trained?????? Superb breeder.......need a reference, AAAA++++ All the way. You need to act now, don't miss your opportunity. I have 4 and 2 came from Cecilia Holland.​​​"

Mogi Nov. 16, 2016 (1 yr.) Sire Yogi and Dam: Mocha
We have two females, Belle is planned to be breeding over the next 3 years(till 2019) we will breed her to Yogi, they will look a lot like Mogi (Same Sire) and dark Liver chocolate Belle. We purchased Rosita back and since he calls her 
Chloe (we already have a chloe pup kept from belles litter) we changed her name to Sophie. We expect Rosie's vibrant Red to show up in solids with Yogi and since he carries the Liver and White gene like what Sophie is..we COULD POSSIBLY get some that look like Sophie..she will breed to Yogi from 2018-2020 or 2021..we retire by age 5 for the health of our dogs.
"Happy first Birthday to my gorgeous Mogi girl! You have brought a ton of joy to our family!"

11-07-18 I received this text update from Nadia on Blocky, Sophie and Samson's July Pup:
​"Blocky had his first week of formal training and he looooooves its!!! He loves learning. He reminds me of my Rottweiler Bubba who was a fully trained protection dog....just dutiful and loved tasks. Blocky is so sweet so smart and so well adjusted. His trainer cannot believe that this small breed dog behaves so well and has such an incredible attention span. She said his breeder did an amazing job socialising him. She is blown away by his abilities"
2019-202I post photos now on FB and on nursery pages please contact me if interested in a current male puppy or to get on future waitlist. Best way to reach me is phone or text. Thanks, Cecilia
