Apolo lives with his family across the ally from us. He comes to visit quite
regularly. He is close to 11 years old now. He and our poodle, Fred, were
best friends and when Fred got sick and we had to have him put to sleep
Apolo would come over and we would comfort each other in our loss for our
When we went to Florida a couple of years ago we didn't have anyone to
keep Bitsey for us. So Darren, our friends sons two boys offered to keep
her. The boys at that time were 8 and 10. We were gone for 2 weeks and
when we went to pick her up, the boys were devistated. They had become
so attached to Bitsey that they didn't want us to take her.
It was heartbreaking, for us, and for their Grandma & Grandpa Fundenberger.
So, they asked us to see if we could find a Shih Tzu puppy for them to
give to the boys for Christmas. We did and since she would be ready to
take home a week before Christmas we agreed to keep her with us til they
could come and get her the week-end before Christmas.
Bitsey took the baby under her wing and treated her like her own little
baby. It was so cute. But, Bitsey, really moped around for quite a while
when they took her away.
Today they are good friends and love to visit each other. As you can see,
they are really two of a kind. : )
