Furbaby Friday with Josie Riviera!

I am very happy to welcome Josie Riviera to the blog to share her darling little furbaby and historical, inspirational, and sweet romance with us.

Josie: My husband and I have one dog, Henry. He’s a shih tzu, and we “inherited” him from our daughter. After years of saying “no” to her begging for a dog, we waited until her 18th birthday. However, she decided to attend university in Northern Ireland, and, 5 years later, she’s still living in Ireland.

Henry is fun, energetic, and lots of company. He enjoys nightly walks, and is always with me or my husband. Henry has a stomach problem, so he needs to eat special food (sigh), but that doesn’t stop him from loving to eat. Now that our daughter has finished her university studies and completed her Master’s Degree, she’s requested that Henry travel to Ireland to live with her.
However, at this point, we’re keeping Henry with us, content in the Carolinas.
My husband and I disagree about how often Henry should be groomed.

  2. Hi Josie! For summer, I like Henry’s hair cut. I also agree that Henry remain home with you and your husband.

  3. Henry is cuter with his hair long. My Coton always looked shaggy. My aunt has him now and she agrees. So, my vote is for Henry to remain with his coat longer.

  4. Oh, he’s adorable, Josie. I prefer Henry’s ‘teddy bear’ look. Thanks for sharing and all the best! 🙂

  5. He’s so stinkin’ adorable either way, I don’t know what I’d say about a grooming schedule. 🙂

  6. Henry is precious. Our little shih tzu passed away and my husband hasn’t been able to think about another dog yet. We had Webster groomed once a month. The hair has to be kept from hanging into their eyes or they can have eye problems.
    Your book bundle sounds intriguing. Somehow I missed the one with the Romany magic.
    Beth, you know how I love your Furbaby Fridays. Thanks for cheering us with this feature.

  7. Henry is adorable! It’ll no doubt be hard to let him go to Ireland.

  8. Sigh, so very true,


  9. I’ve only had short haired dogs, so I don’t know about grooming frequency. But Henry is adorable. I always like the way they look when their coat has grown out a little from the cut so it’s not so “perfect”.
    Sorry to your daughter, but at this point Henry is YOUR dog. It would be very disruptive to him to make that change after 5 years. Different countries have different strains of bugs (diseases). She would be better off getting a dog that was born there.

  10. Really cute little guy and you should keep him. He’s made his home with you and I doubt he’d be happy being sent to Ireland.
