My Buddy Rocky

I coworker's wife sent him a picture of a puppy. He immediately responded he didn't want the dog. No hesitation, he just no wanty. I took a glance and with no hesitation I said I'd take it.

I knew nothing about it. It was white and a puppy.
I discovered it was a Shih tzu/Boxer mix. Don't ask for the logistics. Two days later the puppy was at my house.

He's my newest bestest friend.

I had assumed he'd be about 30lbs... yeah, that's not happening. So far he's barely grown double since I've had him. I never thought I'd fall in love with such a tiny dog.

But I did. I love my box of shit.


  1. We have a Boxer/Shih Tzu mix too! Her name is Olive and this was her as a puppy, pretty similar to Rocky: http://www.flickr.com/photos/moocha/sets/72157621926423385/

    Hope he's grown up well! Olive's got her own instagram if you want to check out her adult-look for comparison (olivevan). We haven't been able to find many other box-tzu's so I was excited to come across you blog!
