Tzu Tips:  Newsletter May 2022

Welcome to the Newest Edition of Shih Tzu News

So glad you took the time to open your email and visit my site.  I wanted to tell you about what's happening here.

We Have Puppies

Male puppies, that is, from our latest litter by April and Toby.  They were born on May 2, 2022 and all are doing extremely well.  These puppies will be standard size and will be ready to go to their forever homes when they turn 9 weeks old.

If you have contacted me recently about a male puppy, please send me a quick note to let me know you are still interested.  Contact me now.

Combining Two Websites

You may know that a few years ago, I split my Miracle Shih Tzu site into two smaller sites:  Miracle Shih Tzu and Miracle Shih Tzu Pup.  The main site was devoted to the care of Shih Tzu dogs and puppies.  The smaller site was used as a go-to place to learn more about puppies that might be currently available.  

Between the COVID pandemic, family illness, and my own health issues, I have decided to combine the two again into one site.  The convergence of the two sites is not yet complete so feel free to contact me from either site.  Once complete, though, the Miracle Shih Tzu Pup site will be taken off line.  

I have done this because I'm finding it very difficult to manage both sites at the same time.  Many of you have written to me wondering why litters have not been posted.  Having one site may make it easier for me to communicate with you all in a more timely manner.
