Sirius of the Week for February 9 - 15, 2003

This week we're featuring Alex. Alex's mom writes,

"This is a recent photo of Alex taken immediately after I bought my first digital camera. Alex is a mentally retarded Shih Tzu. She had brain damage at birth, and she does have some trouble learning new information. For the first six months of her life I was unable to leave a bowl of water out for her because she had a hard time learning that if she put her whole face in the water to get a drink she couldn't breathe. I had to leave one or two ice cubes at that is all.

"She is absolutely the most adorable and sweet dog I have had in a long time. She is full of personality and she loves people, cats, other dogs, children, anyone. Believe it or not her favorite toy is a pad of post it notes. When my neighbors come over with their dogs so all the dogs can play they bring their toys, stuffed animals, balls, etc. Alex just wants a pad of post it notes to chew on. For Christmas her pooch friends went in together and gave her an assortment of post it notes that were different sizes, shapes, and colors. I have yet to figure out if it was really for Alex or if it was more of a way to tease her Mom for her choice in toys. ;o)

"Her favorite game is to play tug of war with my hair but she is so cute I have a hard time becoming too upset.

"Even though Alex is 4 years old I find it fascinating to watch her with other dogs. All dogs seem to treat her as though she is a puppy. Odd how they know something isn't quite the same as their other pooch friends. Alex is my baby and I wouldn't change a thing about her!"
