Croaking Toad Shih Tzu

Croaking Toad Shih Tzu Shih Tzu breeder. Breeding beautiful well socialized Shih Tzu puppies. We are a small in home breeding program. Our moms and dads live as pampered pets and have the full run of the house.

They enjoy outings to the lake and walks through the woods or just hanging out in front of the TV. Our puppies are raised in the dining room and are prespoiled before going home. Visit our web site at www.croakingtoadshihtzupuppies.com or email me for more information. Patty at [email protected]

Strawberry thought she might like to get involved in a soccer game. Sully on the other hand did not want to hang around and find out if the soccer game was going to come his way. When the big dogs get focused on a game the puppies learn real fast to stay out of their way!

A lot of water and a lot of belly can not stop Rosie from enjoying her walk .. or should I say her waddle. Soon she will be enjoying a cuddle with her warm babies instead of splashing around in the cold water.

Leo feels a little left out that Jessie and the kids get all the attention. This litter is a big deal for him since when they were born he became a daddy for the first time.
Leo is our main man now. He is the dad of 4 of our 5 upcoming litters.

On second thought maybe I would like the cold winter with its frozen ground to come back. While most of the dogs were out with me playing soccer, Mattie was off digging up the thawed out yard... with her face apparently! Grrrrrrr. And I just finished washing all the dog beds and floors in the house.

It is good to see the sun again. Mamma Jessie does not get to go on morning walks with the group but she does get her outdoor explore time on our property. The rest of the family really wanted to join her and I think Jessie thought that would be a fun idea.

When I started walking dogs at Coffee Creek Forest Preserve the boardwalks were solid strong redwood that seemed invincible. Almost twenty years later the boardwalks and I have a lot in common. No longer invincible we both feel weathered and stomped on. I've had two knee replacements and now it is the boardwalk's turn for some new parts.

Hoping our new parts will see us both still walking together for another twenty years!

You hear often how someone wears their heart on their sleeve. Laverne thought that made no sense since hearts do not belong on arms. She wears her heart on her chest where it belongs.
How cute is this little black heart?

The annual Polar Plunge is taking place today in Chicago.
Mattie wanted to participate in the event.
Although she did not jump in Lake Michigan maybe it will count anyway. She took a dunk in Coffee Creek which flows into the Little Calumet River which in turn flows into Lake Michigan. Close enough .. right?

There is one down side to this warm up. Mud and more mud.
Fact of life is that there is a price to pay in return for a morning at the forest preserve. The price is a trip in the tub before you can go back in the house.

The Superbowl has come and gone but the puppies have good memories to store away till next year. With Covid, visits with the grandkids have been few but luck was with the puppies yesterday and we were all able to get together.

02/13/2022

Puppy Bowl?
The big dogs wanted in on the action. If it looks like an Easter egg hunt it is because they were looking for the little rubber footballs. Once they scored a football all they had on their mind was escaping the field and hiding out so no one could intercept their play.

The sun was out and the air calm so I thought it was a great idea to let the puppies have a quick glimpse of what snow was. Maybe not such a good idea .... now they are all mad at me because I would not let them stay out and play until they were done. Sorry kids but as much fun as you were having it is too cold for an extended puppy break.

An advertisement (often shortened to advert or ad) is the promotion of a product, brand or service to a viewership in order to attract interest, engagement and sales. Advertisements come in many forms, from copy to interactive video, and have evolved to become a crucial feature of the app marketplace.
When ever I need some joy I just scroll through all the puppy/Mama/Dad pictures 🐾💕
Hi I am having trouble message you can you just text me here is my phone number 1574 207 3694
Happy Father’s Day to Radar and Jackson!
My little girl is amazing. Not only is she beautiful she is so sweet and doing amazing with potty training
OK - unsolicited feedback here... We purchased a puppy from Croaking Toad last summer and the puppy is now a young dog. This dog is AMAZING. We are so happy with him - he is as healthy as can be and just a joy to have around. The breeder was helpful before, during, and, importantly, after the sale. Patty was so helpful with advice on questions we had long after we brought him home. Our puppy was quickly housebroken and has acclimated to our family amazingly well. If you have any lingering doubts about getting your Shih Tzu here - I encourage you to put them aside and get the puppy you and your family deserve! No - I am not a friend or relative of the breeder (well now I am sort of due to the tremendous experience we've had) so this is a REAL and UNSOLICITED testimonial. This breeder simply cares about the breed, the puppies/dogs, and her customers.
Rufio “Olaf” is having a birthday next week! We are so grateful to have this little pup in our lives! Happy one year birthday! (Wish I could post a photo)
Bailey loves to tilt his head sideways for photos like his mommy. He also loves to splash himself with water when he has a bowl of water as you told us. It's the cutest thing he does. He's drinking out of the water bottle now. Bailey has adapted well to our house.
Rufio “Olaf” is doing great at 12 weeks! He’s quickly learning tricks and is a joy in our lives!
