Oreo the Mixed Breed

Dog Breed: Lhasa Apso / Shih Tzu

Hi, my name's Oreo. My mom got me when I was 3 months old. She had just gotten her heart broken when her 9-week-old Rottweiler pup, Sophie, went to doggie heaven. I immediately cured her sadness by just being me! We love each other so much and take care of each other too! I enjoy our walks to the local bakery where we buy freshly baked sourdough buns (which I absolutely love). I'm very friendly toward bigger dogs; I try chasing them around even if they run away from me. I guess I'm a big dog in a small package! I know a few tricks, but my mom doesn't pressure me in learning anything more. She just lets me be me. She showers me with hugs and kisses and I often tease her by wriggling my way out of her arms, just so she'll chase me and play-wrestle afterwards! Even though I have my own doggie bed, I prefer sleeping near her or on her own bed and guarding her while she sleeps. Then I wake her every morning with lots of kisses, especially when she doesn't get up after her alarm rings. I sure don't give up that easily!
