Puppies Have Arrived

It has been a while since Deblyn's Shih Tzu has had a litter of puppies.

Fantasia's Kiss Kiss Kiss delivered her babies on March 20th, 2011. 1 male and 3 females. All doing very well.

They are now just over a week old. We are waiting for their eyes to open and for them to start developing their sweet personalities.

Deblyn's Western Swing

My love affair for the gold with and black mask Shih Tzu started when I got my Izzy. She was so dang cute. So I decided then, this is what I want to show.

So I started my search. Do you know how hard it is to find a gold with a black mask? This is when I decided to breed my Izzy to US/CAN CH Silhouettes Western Journey.

We waited for Izzy to show some type of sign she was pregnant. She never really got big. On day 65 she started labor. Out came Lulu. My perfect little girl. My gold with a black mask.

Being a singlton pup she is very spoiled and loved. I truly adore her. Were hope she will do well in the show ring. Only time will tell.

Check back from time to time for updates on Lulu.

Deblyns Diamond Royale's First Show

Deblyn's Diamond Royale AKA Bling had a great time at the Reno Kennel club, Which was hosted at the Grand Sierra Resort.

This was Bling's very first show and she did beautifully for a puppy. Judge Gay Dunlap gave her Winners Bitch and best opposite sex for a 3 point major. As you can see by the photo we were all very happy, even Bling.

I think everyone had a great time in Reno. There was allways something to do.

News from Deblyns Shih Tzu

It has been a while since my last post. Many things have been happening at Deblyns Shih Tzu.

Chenille's Coco Channel AKA CeCe finished her AKC championship thanks to Therese Foreman and Peggy Souza.

We then bred CeCe to CH BISS Silhouettes Keeper of the Stars. We had a beautiful litter of 5 puppies. Two of these pups are now in show homes.

Fantasia's Dream Weaver was bred to CH BISS Silhouettes Keeper of the Stars. This is where Bling and Ding came from. ( don't you just love the names?) Anyway Bling has one major, her very 1st show. Ding is my reserve King. I might add 2 major reserves. I think that is pretty good for puppies.

September 11, 2001

Let's not forget September 11, 2001. Many of you might remember where you were that horrible morning. I was in bed and my husband came in and told me the news. We were glued to the Tv for the rest of the day.

For the lives that were lost the families that lost loved ones. You will be forever in our hearts and mind. GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU.

Lets take a moment of prayer on September 11, 2009


You say you will never forget where you were when
you heard the news On September 11, 2001.
Neither will I.

I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room
with a man who called his wife to say 'Good-Bye.' I
held his fingers steady as he dialed. I gave him the
peace to say, 'Honey, I am not going to make it, but it
is OK..I am ready to go.'

I was with his wife when he called as she fed
breakfast to their children. I held her up as she
tried to understand his words and as she realized
he wasn't coming home that night.

I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a
woman cried out to Me for help. 'I have been
knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!' I said.
'Of course I will show you the way home - only
believe in Me now.'

I was at the base of the building with the Priest
ministering to the injured and devastated souls.
I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven. He
heard my voice and answered.

I was on all four of those planes, in every seat,
with every prayer. I was with the crew as they
were overtaken. I was in the very hearts of the
believers there, comforting and assuring them that their
faith has saved them.

I was in Texas , Virginia , California , Michigan , Afghanistan .
I was standing next to yo u when you heard the terrible news.
Di d you sense Me ?

I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew
every name - though not all know Me . Some met Me
for the first time on the 86th floor.

Some sought Me with their last breath.
Some couldn't hear Me calling to them through the
smoke and flames; 'Come to Me ... this way... take
my hand.' Some chose, for the final time, to ignore Me .
But, I was there.

I did not place you in the Tower that day. You
may not know why, but I do.. However, if you were
there in that explosive moment in time, would you have
reached for Me ?

Sept. 11, 2001, was not the end of the journey
for you . But someday your journey will end. And I
will be there for you as well. Seek Me now while I may
be found. Then, at any moment, you know you are
'ready to go.'

I will be in the stairwell of your final moments.

Spaying and Neutering

Dog Spaying and Neutering

Pet overpopulation is a problem, and it should be a problem for all of us. Did you know that there are more than 3 MILLION dogs and cats killed (euthanized is the nice word) at animal shelters every year? It's true!

You might rather think of these poor animals as "street animals," but you'd be wrong. Many of the dogs that are "put to sleep" (that's another nice way for saying they were killed) are actually the offspring of family pets, and some of them are even purebred dogs.

It doesn't have to be this way. Responsible dog owners should have their pets spayed or neutered. Purebred dogs that are used for reproduction of the
breed are probably the only exception to the rule. Unless you're a dog breeder, have your dog spayed or neutered.

Those adorable little puppies grow up to be dogs, and if they are dogs that nobody wants, the animal shelter KILLS them. Forget the nice words! That's what happens. You can call it "euthanized" or "put to sleep" if it makes you feel better, but the bottom line is they are killed, their bodies are burned, and the "waste" is buried.

Veterinarians perform the spay or neuter operation while the dog is under anesthesia. Your dog might have to stay at the vet's office for a few hours or even for a few days depending upon the procedure, but the dog will not suffer. Your dog may need to have stitches removed a few days after surgery. Dogs can become parents sooner than you think, so the sooner they are spayed or neutered, the better!

Don't think that you are mistreating your dog by spaying or neutering it. The dog really doesn't care. Dogs live by instinct. If they have an instinct to mate, they will, and if they don't, they won't. The world is overpopulated with dogs and cats. Do the responsible thing and have your new puppy spayed as early as possible.

Dental Care For Your Shih Tzu

Dental Care for Shih tzu

Has your dog ever overwhelmed with his "doggy breath"? It's pretty awful, huh? His doggy breath is not his fault though. It's your fault.

Actually, a dog's bad breath is a clue that something bad is happening in his mouth. It's a sign of trouble. The problem might be small now, but if you ignore the problem, it isn't likely to just go away. It's much more likely to get worse and worse.

You love your dog. I understand that. I love my Shih Tzu the same way. He's my best friend, my confidant, and my companion. I want him to live a long, long time. It's a well-known and accepted fact in veterinary circles that dogs that receive regular and adequate dental care simply live longer than dogs that don't.

There's even science to back up the fact that dogs that get good dental care live longer. You're not likely to notice that your dog has a toothache even if you're really observant. You'll probably finally notice when he's only chewing with one side of his mouth. A dog's dental problems develop very slowly, and you're really not likely to be aware of them until the problem is really, really bad.

Without regular dental care, most dogs will have infected stinky dog-breath mouths by the time they are six or seven years old. Infections cause bacteria that are released into the bloodstream. It's not fatal, though. A young dog's body is good at dealing with the bacteria. But it adds stress to the immune system.

Over time the bacteria load gets heavier, and as the dog ages, his immune system becomes less able to deal with the problem. By the time he's eight or nine you have a old, failing dog with kidney disease, liver problems and no choice but removing his old rotten teeth. Regular brushing and regular dental care can prevent these problems!
