Athena, Super Shih Tzu Saturday Shih Tzu of the Week
Today’s Super Shih Tzu Saturday Shih Tzu of the week is Athena! Athena hails from our neighbors to the north, Canada! Athena is our first International Super Shih Tzu of the Week!
Dad calls me “Fuzzbutt” and Mom calls me “Boo”.
I am six-and-a-half.
I’m a Girl!
What are your favorite foods?
I love Mommy’s home-baked chicken! I also like pea pods and watermelon. I REALLY like ice cream, but I only get a taste every now and then.
What is your favorite toy?
I like anything stuffed and squeaky, but my absolute favorite is my little stuffed beaver. We call it my “Baby”.
Do you have a special place you like to be, either your bed, a trip to the beach or even a secret hiding spot?
My favorite place is Daddy’s lap, although I also love to be on walks and occasionally I will snooze in my pet carrier, if I need some down time.
Do you perform any special tricks?
I can count to three all by myself and if my Daddy sings “If you’re happy and you know it”, I stand up and clap in all the right places! I also like to sing along with my favorite blues singer, Rory Block, but only certain songs…
What is the funniest thing you have done to your mummy and daddy?
One day when Mommy got out the big, noisy machine that sucks things up off the floor, I ran and grabbed my 3 favorite toys, put them on the couch and laid down over them so they would not get sucked up!
Do you have a bff?
EVERYBODY is my friend, but I think my bff would have to be my cousin Ellie. She is a Pom and kind of old, but she’s awful cuddly. We go for grooming together a lot!
This last question is for your mummy or daddy. If you could talk, what celebrity or person would you sound like?
Well, I think she would sound like Katherine Hepburn, but her Mom thinks she would sound more like Cher. 🙂
She is smart (even if we spell the word “cookie”, she knows what it is!), sassy, gives the best cuddles and kisses and is game for just about anything as long as it means being with her people. She even walked 5000 feet up a mountain with us in Banff, Alberta, Canada, although she was happy to have me carry her most of the way back down!
