Who Could Resist This Face?

We couldn't resist her!  She is the newest addition to our family and her name is Mattie.  She was needing a good home and I couldn't say no.  So she joins our other three Shih Tzus and is very much at home after only one day and one night.  She is between 18 months and 2 years old, weighs about 5 pounds, and is a cuddler!  She has already had a litter of pups though she still has that puppy smell herself.  Mattie is proving to be very smart and photogenic.

Mattie was originally named Bubbles, but I just couldn't take that, so she is Mattie, short for Matilda, one of my favorite children's stories and movies.  She is learning her new name pretty quickly, but when all else fails she answers to "Bubba". 

Cookie, Emma and Shakes have been very good to her.  Smokie the cat, not so much.

Jerry hasn't seen her yet but he has been wanting another Shih Tzu.  I was the one resisting it till I met Mattie.  He can't wait to see her.

So, welcome, Mattie!
