Animal House

It's time to introduce important members of Nerm's household. The "boys" are they are affectionately called. They are shih-tzus which Big Tom gave me for Christmas. I was only supposed to get one, but they were littermates and were the last two in the litter. They were inseparable and ole softie Tom couldn't bear to see them separated. So I got two cuties for Christmas. They are comedians and certainly spice up our lives. The white one is Smoocher and the little black one is Boomer. They sure live up to their names.

This is Boomer trying hard to reach into Bella's bowl for leftovers. Stretch, Boomer!

Bella is our Newfoundland. She really doesn't want to be bothered with the boys, but they love her. She moves from room to room trying to get away and they follow her closely.
I must tell you the story of these dogs. For years Big Tom and I have had big dogs when all I wanted was a little white lap dog. First it was a Boxer (wonderful family dog), then it was a Bouvier des Flandres (funny, hyper) and then Bella our Newfoundland(sweet, patience and wonderful with children). But no little lapdogs. The year our Bouvier died, we decided it was time to get a new dog. We saw pictures of Newfoundland puppies on the internet and I said they were cute (which they were). So-o-o Big Tom thought (or dreamed) that I wanted one. So that year it was the family joke that Nerm wanted a little white lap dog and got a 150lbs. black Newfoundland!
Finally Big Tom got the message and this Christmas my boys arrived. See, patience IS a virtue.
