Why FooFace?

Because he's our dog (our son Gabe has joint custody with us!), and he's cute, and he's a Shih Tzu!

The Shih Tzu/Icelandic Connection

What is the connection? Here is my theory: the Icelandic horse has the Tolt--the fifth gait that is s-o-o-o smooth (see earlier posting). So, have you seen the dog shows on TV, where the Shih Tzus are all tarted up with long, flowing hair and silly bows? And have you noticed that they glide along, with a super-smooth gait? I believe that the Shih Tzu gait is the dog equivalent of the Icelandic horse tolt! Is that brilliant?

Who is the Mary, and who is the Rhoda?

Me or Foo...your comments welcome!

Who can turn the world on with his smile?
Who can take a nothing day, and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile?
Well it's Foo Dog, and Foo should know it
With each glance and every little movement Foo shows it

Foo is all around, no need to waste it
Foo can have a town, why doesn't Foo take it
Foo's gonna make it after all
Foo's gonna make it after all


How will Foo make it on his own?
This world is awfully big, Foo this time Foo's all alone
But it's time Foo started living
It's time Foo let someone else do some giving

Foo is all around, no need to waste it
Foo can have a town, why doesn't Foo take it
Foo's gonna make it after all
Foo's gonna make it after all
