Our Sweet Baby - Kaylee Rae Redwing

Here is a picture of Kaylee's new hairdo - we let her hair grow out to keep her warm during the Minnesota winters. She loves the snow. Kaylee is a Shih Tzu, which was originally bred the Himalyan mountains and is one of the oldest breeds in the world! She loves, loves, loves the snow. We dig a huge snow path in a "crazy 8" pattern through our backyard so she can bound around outside without being over her head in snow drifts.

Kaylee is Dad's 4th Grand-dog after Gizmo, Capone, Emma.

What is Kaylee Thinking in this photo?: "It's hard work to be this adorable"

She officially weighs in at 8.5 lbs so she is really tiny (but fluffy) for a Shih Tzu.

Kaylee's Stats
- 8.5 lbs
- Her official coloring is called "gold with black tips and black mask" in the Shih Tzu breeding world - it's relatively rare and sought after
- Only 1 year old
- size small to medium in doggie clothes (not x-small)
- loves, loves, loves cats and sleeps with Billy and Tyler every day

- is great on a leash for a walk, does not pull
- knows how to "sit"
- knows how to back up "back"
- knows how to "leave it" sometimes she will try to eat a q-tip or something dangerous
- loves to eat, eat and eat
- snorts and coughs after she drinks, vet recommends we train her to use a rodent drip waterer, this is common in short faced dogs, we're trying to find one that attaches to a wall
- just recently learned how to "high five"
- needs her bordatella booster shot before her next grooming appointment

Let me know what you think of her new hairdo!
