Bailley's Had me From The Start


DOB: 11/29/2000 - 8/15/2017 

Bailley was my very heart. She was the reason the sun rose and set. Bailley engulfed everything love could possibly be. I write this almost a month since she passed and it is so incredibly painful for me to admit publicly she is gone. Our lives have changed drastically since saying goodbye. We miss her every single day in almost every single moment. There are minutiae moments of happy memories with her but the pain of losing her still creeps in. The only comfort we take in her passing is we said goodbye at home, peacefully while she lay in her bed. She lived a full happy life. The only thing I would ever change about her would be that her life could have stretched past mine. But, we all know when we sign on for having fur children that we will most likely outlive them. 

Be sure to check out Bailley's Blog - Bailley was diagnosed with Cushing's in November of 2014

This blog is a record of our journey and how I chose to treat her and offers comfort and advice to others traveling this path. BAILLEY'S BLOG




DOB: 08/19/2007 SPAYED

Phoebe was born with a silver spoon in her mouth because Bailley is her mother. Phoebe is so much like her mother. I prayed when Bailley was pregnant with her last litter she would have a baby girl just like her. She granted me this request. What a jewel Phoebe is. Everything Phoebe does is perfect!!! Phoebe will live out the remainder of her days here with us.



CH Tian Mi's Talk Dirty To Me "Brodie"

DOB: 08/24/2010

Brodie is a third generation Tian Mi Tzu. At just ten months and two shows, Brodie finished his show career quickly with three majors and went on to place in the Bred By group. This little boy is out of Rocco and Phoebe who is the daughter of my most precious Bailley. This adorable boy has wormed his way into my heart and gives me great joy just being in his company. He does anything I ask him to do and always wants my approval. (which isn't hard to get because I adore him) 





BISS GCHB Tian Mi's Something To Talk About "Cody"

DOB: 04/06/15

Cody is a cross between Kaylie and Brodie with spectacular results. Cody is a sweet all around boy who loves everyone and loves to show. This little boy has always marched to the beat of his drum. Cody grew up at the University of Florida with his owner David Barber PHD. Cody ran the campus and made many friends. Cody came back home at approx nine months old to start his show career. He finished his championship with a clean sweep of all majors, obtaining his last major at The Shih Tzu National specialty 2016 in Atlanta going Winners Dog against Shih Tzu from all over the world. Cody continued his career with me, becoming a Grand Champion in a few short shows. Cody and I showed at Westminster 2017 and have had many toy group placements as well as Owner Handled Reserve Best In Show. Cody is a phenomenal little dog. He is the whole package! Cody is currently being campaigned with his new handler, Greg Larson, of Ista Shih Tzu. Cody still has big things to accomplish.




DOB: 04/27/2013 GCH Tian Mi's Rumur Has It 

Peyton is the sweetest kindest soul I have ever had the privilege of knowing. Pictured at ten months. She is a very happy girl, very laid back and does what ever you ask her. Peyton is the whole package, she is not only beautiful she is very smart. Peyton went to live with my sister in law, Michelle, when she was 12 weeks old. She grew up running the penthouse apartment in Downtown Orlando. She has been pampered and adored, groomed and trained to be a show dog. We are so proud of this little girl who manages to leave everyone who sees her breathless and begging to take her home! I think 2014 is PEYTON'S year!  

UPDATE: 12/2014 - I could have never in my wildest dreams imagined just how 2014 would be Peyton's year. Peyton started her show career in 4/2014 she went to the Shih Tzu National specialty in St Louis on 5/9 - 10 and surprised everyone with her arrogant, beautiful presence. Peyton won Winners Bitch, Best of Winners, and Best Bred By Exhibitor in Show with a total entry of 85 Shih tzu. AKC judge Mrs June Penta describes Peyton as, "Outstanding movement and overall balance and her carriage made a STRONG impression." Peyton finished her Grand Championship at the 2014 Eukanuba cluster, going Best of Opposite. Peyton also finished number one Owner handled Shih Tzu in USA 2014 by winning THE AKC EUKANUBA NOH FINALS. Peyton is now cut down and lives her life as a Shih Tzu should, curled up anywhere she wishes, or tearing out all of the toys in the toy box.  You can see Peyton's winning video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mvd3kfVyExg

She is all puppy though, constantly eating things she should not, she steals Peyton's toys, she does not like to share. She looks up to her Mommy and I swear she says, "One day I want to be just like you." Peyton's mini me. Only God can help us now. Lexi will never leave our home and will remain my little princess forever.  UPDATE: Lexi's first show was 5/2017 at the ASTC National. She won first place is her class. Lexi finished her championship at The AKC National Finals in Orlando, with a HUGE entry, going BEST OF WINNERS over all class dogs and finishing with 2 five point majors.

As you can see Shih Tzu are just like people. They each have their own unique, charming personalities. They are all very different, but beware, they will steal your heart. Anyone who meets these special little dogs falls in love, even the most rigid of people. I have seen men reduced to lying on the floor goo gooing and gaa gaaing just in hopes of winning a Shih Tzu heart.
