My Heart Dog Zuzu on her 6th Birthday

     La Principessa Zuzu, pooped from partying, with her angel’s wings snoozes on
my ‘La Reine’ pillow from Tattered Notions.











Momo and Ruffy



Zuzu and Belle







From scratch, my King made hot lactose-free cream of potato and parsnip soup garnished with heart-shaped croutons and chives, yeast-raised breadsticks, and a white bundt cake dusted with confectioner’s sugar for La Principessa Zuzu’s 6th birthday party!   Her siblings received little candy cone favors with a doggie biscuit inside.   Zuzu got a nice hunk of pan-seared tuna steak for her birthday, and gave us lots of kisses after she gobbled it up.



Zuzu (with her nose tucked under, she still does that!) at 3 weeks, and today.



You were born 10 February 2005, we’ve spoiled you for six years of bliss and don’t care.
We’re unashamedly besotted with you, Little Miss Zuzu.

Anybody else this crazy about their dogs?!



Until next time, stay shabby!


I’m sharing with Kathleen’s White Wednesday at Faded Charm – come to the pale party!

She is the most darling little thing and yes I'm crazy crazy crazy for my dogs. Isn't amazing how the things they do at three weeks - they still do when all grown up?

I do not have a dog at the moment because I live with my mom, and she is NOT an animal person. I miss my animals every day!!! I think your party was fabulous, and those crackers are so pretty. I can't wait to try them. We totally spoiled my dear friends sweet little Shihtzu Sasha for years and years... She was our queen!!!

Zuzu is adorable! Yes, we do love our fur babies, don't we?!

Happy Birthday, Miss Zuzu!

Dearest Sandy,

Oh, when I still had my little Mauzie (black & tan Dachshund) she got that kind of treatment. She's traveled with us all over the country; traveling in two continents. Miss her even after all those years. Now we got felines, they're more independent and also adorable.
But your Zuzu is a very cute one, so is Belle. So they can't be sisters, otherwise Belle would have turned 6 as well. The big guys are lovely too.
Les coeurs de le Roi looked 'regal'...

Happy Valentine's Day to all of you with a big heart!

Happy Birthday Zuzu, you are adorable.

Yes, we love our little 3.9 pound Sophie Michelle. People laugh because I gave her a middle name.

I held Sophie when she was only a few weeks old. That was almost 4 years ago.

June said...

Oh happy birthday to sweet Zuzu. She had a beautiful little party. I am glad my little T.T. Rabbit can't read...he might be jealous!
She is such a beauty Sandy.

We never really knew one of our dogs birthdays and I forgot when our full bred was born so I always deemed Feb 15th as their birthdays. Coming up soon.

I would love a pictorial essay of your shabby studio in its winter wonderland surroundings - more pics of it glazed in snow, like a gingerbread house, please! Send some winter wonderland to cool off this sultry simmering summer down here! :)

Happy Birthday to your little girl. I figure if you are going to have a dog then you might as well spoil it :)
My pooch Molly is my life. I love her so much! But, what else can I do?

Lisa said...

Love your dogs. But Zuzu and Belle are totally adorable. I'm completely besotted with Charlie my malti-poo. Then we have sweet tempered Ellie a shih tzu who is still in puppydom and tends to be feral. We wouldn't be without them. Love your photo's!

Cheers,

Happy Birthday to Miss Zuzu, she is so lucky to have such a nice home. Quite adorable too. I spoil my two doggies, but why not? They are wonderful and loyal and best friends to us!

Hi Sandy!

Your pups are too sweet for words! We have 2 mini dachsunds, mother& daughter, and we adore them. Gur & Zoe. Zoe is very small and is now 4 yrs old but acts like a puppy, too cute.

Love the french pillow, tre chic!

Hugs, Sherry

Happy birthday lil Zuzu!!

Tania - Grange de Charme said...

I wish I could have a little Zuzu like you but it's impossible with my work, I can't let a little dog all day long alone at home ! When i'll be retired sure I will have a dog !

Mimi and Tilly said...

I'm crazy about my two cats! A slinky, black moggy, and a big floppy tabby. This post is a real feast for the eyes. Thank you! Em x

High Heeled Life said...

We are head over heels for our little Dolce (yorkie) , he brings us so much love! And our Stella (yellow lab) keeps us on our toes and active .. she brings so much joy. Our home is filled with much happiness due to our furbabies.

Happy birthday to Zuzu!!! Your furbabies are all adorable. xo HHL

I love my Bella Bleu as much as you love your Zuzu. My Bella is 2 and is also a maltese. She is bigger than your Zuzu, about 10lbs. I had hoped she would be small, 6 lbs., like her mama but she kept growing and is the size of her Daddy. How in the world do you grow her hair out so long. My poor Bella just mopes if I try to grow her hair long.

Happy happy birthday to you sweet lil Zuzu ox

Marie Arden said...

Happy Birthday Zuzu. What a sweet photo Sydney-Marie now wants angel wings!! I told her she has a white tutu and crown that is enough. But I think Pink Boy will buy her some wings.
Kisses to all the puppies.

I have 2 doggy nephews and spoil them rotten, here is my thought, they are hear such a short time (compared to humans) that I am going to give them the best experience ever!

I enjoy seeing all four of your babies...you have two pairs! Your two tiny whites on top of the white cushy pillows look like two little angels floating on puffy clouds; adorable!

Yes, we have a dog-ruled house (big ones, who claw up the hardwood floors, take up all the space on the human bed, make it difficult to get away for any length of time from home and, well, we even find dog hair in the ice cubes but can't seem to ever live without a pooch of four or more!). They're too much fun and give the best hugs after a really bad day. We tend to adopt the ones nobody wants and, for our efforts, we're rewarded many times over with 10,000 kisses of gratitude, unconditional love and loyal protection. It just can't be beat. Our faithful companions. (Although I do wonder what it would be like to have my dream house of shabby whites without doggie covers over most of the furniture. Only one room is blissfully as I leave it...thanks to portable baby gates!!)

Vicki Again said...

Sandy, if anyone deserves a Happy Valentine's Day, it's you! Thank you for sharing so much of your streamside life with us readers. It's such a visual "relief" to peer into your lovely interiors, see so much beautiful decor, the serene northern woods surrounding your cottage, your bits and pieces of soothing words or quotes, and to treat my sometimes-weary eyes to pleasurable things...a respite from the often-harsh world of news headlines and just too much "noise" coming at us.

I don't take the time often enough for "civilities" or calming rituals, and you remind me that I need to do that...like on Valentine's Day, even if it's a pretty cloth napkin, one of my auntie's little china plates, a piece of chocolate and a dainty cup of tea. It's not so hard. It's worth taking a little time for the nice things of life.

So, sending candy hearts of thanks your way and Happy Valentine's Day to you!

ZuZu is adorable, and about the size of our Dazzle's paw : )
(She did a recent post on my blog about how she thinks she's the color inspiration for our home)
I spent 6 hours grooming both our dogs yesterday after their baths, fortunately there were cute romantic comedies on TV to enjoy while they received their spa treatment!

Your baby is adorable, and your photos of her are wonderful!

Marianne@Songbird said...

Your dogs fit in perfectly with your decor! I hope you are all having a wonderful Valentine's day!

Cindy said...

After those pictures, I'm pretty sure that I'M love with ZuZu!
Your photos express a charming energy about your place and your doggies and your lifestyle that i find enchanting...

Your two dogs in the snow gave my husband and I such a nice trip down memory lane...we had a dog that looked SO MUCH like the dog on the right....she was a wonderful companion to our children. She LOVED playing in the snow too.
We miss her.
Have just joined your blog.
What a sweet little studio you have...just the cutiest little thing, have seen pictures of it many times in many places now.
It's like a grownup's playhouse.
