Hey! My name is Benji and I come from a long history of Shih Tzu breed, originated from China. I'm a toy dog that is pretty independent, affectionate, loyal, playful and spunky! Unlike most dogs of the same breed, my hair is short and trimmed as Mum likes it that way. It doesn't bother me much because I still look awesomely CUTE either way, heheh..
So, I turned two years young last April and boy oh boy, did I have a FUN day out! Imagine my surprise when Mum brought me to this really huge green park with a lake and all. I actually got to run around wildly without my leash on, more than once! Well, to be honest, I kind of 'escaped' every time they unleash me for photoshoots. Gave Mum a good morning exercise each time she runs after me.
Talking about photoshoot, that came as another BIG surprise to me. Mum wanted to celebrate my birthday in a different way this year and thought it would be great to have our photos taken. Mum (and I) knows that I'm really, really cute. Now she has professionally taken images of me to proof it - her little 'brag book'!!
Okay, okay.. I'm not a big fan of picture taking, really. Since Mum went to all the trouble of planning a special day for me, I kind of went along with it the best way I know how, just to please her. She even got me a little red bow tie and 'pupcakes' - cupcakes for doggies! Thanks Mum but I don't like cakes, period. That's why I gave you and the photographer a little hard time when it came to posing me with those pupcakes, heheh..
Luckily I did not have to do too much posing that day. I was just being me - running around with my four little legs exploring the great big park, sniffing at every thing I see, making my marks on every tree and lamp post available. Life is good!
If you like what you see, give my photographer a beep. Her name is Michelle and her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell her Benji and Joey send you. Have a fun session!
