I got the idea for this post from Lindsay at Lindsay Writes.
This is my shih tzu, Jimmy.
Doesn't he look like an Ewok? Or something from Jim Henson's Creature Workshop.
Jimmy is almost 5 years old, I think we got him the year I turned 15 (which means, holy crap, I'm turning 20 this year). Jimmy is the sweetest little thing in the world, with the biggest personality. This picture was taken by the photographer who took my graduation pictures. We were taking pictures in the living room, and suddenly Jimmy popped up in front of the camera making that face. It was perfect (and to be honest, I was happy to have the spotlight taken off me).
I could go on and on about my Jimmy but I won't bore you. Maybe someday I'll write a children's book about him.
I'm seriously considering it.
