SaddleBrooke Shih Tzus have had a very busy spring season. On February 21, 2015, about 20 Shih Tzus and their humans hosted Dr. Dimitri Brown, DVM, from Veterinary Specialty Center of Tucson. Interesting topics that Dr. Brown shared with us were the usual reasons that people bring their pets to the emergency/specialty center, as well as the many issues that could be addressed at home. All enjoyed getting those so important questions answered while the Shih Tzus held Dr. Brown delightfully captive as evidenced by the photo.

Claire Johnson, owner of Claire’s Café & Gallery, is well known for her amazing generosity to the people of the area by serving a free Thanksgiving meal to all who wish to come, as well as many homebound people, on the day before Thanksgiving. Claire says that many volunteers come to take the meals to those who are unable to come to her Café for this special occasion. Claire has been providing this meal for over 25 years. What does this have to do with SaddleBrooke Shih Tzus?

On March 21 SaddleBrooke Shih Tzus and their families were invited to Claire’s Cafe in Catalina (next to the Catalina Hardware store on the east side of the street). Claire reserved the side patio for the SaddleBrooke Shih Tzus and their families at 10:32 a.m.

Just like being in Europe; pups there are welcome in all restaurants.

Yes, the Shih Tzus were on leash, but the patio is fenced in so we were somewhat protected from passersby.

Our final meeting for this spring will be held on Saturday, April 11 at 10:32 a.m.; all Shih Tzus are invited to the Blessing of the Pets, which will be hosted by Toby and our pet blessor, Reverend CJ Wright, at 64503 E. Round Robin, Lane.

If you are a Shih Tzu, tell your family to bring you to this very special meeting. All pets need a blessing because they are very special blessings to those who love them.

SBSTC is a free club for Shih Tzu families; no dues ever.

All SaddleBrooke Shih Tzus are welcome to bring their human family members to help see that everyone is safe and having fun on the patio at Toby’s house as they wait their turn to be blessed. If you have a Shih Tzu, are thinking of being owned by a Shih Tzu or just want to see 30 Shih Tzus off leash, no fights, no barking no biting; come, we will make a believer out of you. If you have questions or need directions, better call Dolores Robu at 825-8980 or email at [email protected] or Carolyn Berg at [email protected] or Kass Newman at [email protected].
