It’s day one of my 12 Days of Cuteness – a celebration of pet cuteness over the 12 days of Christmas.

All intended to bring a smile to your face and a little warmth to your heart.

I’ve picked a favourite photo to begin each day but the rest are in no particular order.

If you want to be sure you see all the posts for this year’s 12 Days of Cuteness, use this link.

Brucie (dog of the day)


Meet Brucie a one and a half year old Shih Tzu. His person says “Brucie is dead cute but hates having his photo taken. We used this goof-up shot on our Christmas card last year anyway.”



Meet Eli, a one and a half year old Shih Tzu. His person says, “If he hears the ice dispenser he runs into the kitchen and gets up on his hind legs and dances in circles for a piece of ice. And then chews his ice cube.”



Meet Reilly, a Schnapso – a mix of Schnauzer and Lhasa Apso. His person says, “We think he was 18 months at the time he was adopted in 2003 so we think he was approximately 12.

Reilly loved being groomed even when he went totally blind he would race wildly back to the groomers room and would demand his box, even when another pup was in it. His groomer always had to move the other dog to make him happy. Of course ‘his’ stall was right next to where his beloved Cindy worked. He adored her.”

The doggie family


These doggies are all Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu mixes. Dad (Dolce is 3), Mom (Lola is 4). Their
pups: Gabbana and Lolita, were 2 years old December 19. Their person says, “They are a great family. Lolita is the princess. She wants whatever the others have even if she has her own identical item.”



Ripley Lazenbury Boyd is a domestic short hair cat aged 8. Her person says she’s “The gobbiest kitty alive. Likes: cheese, cream, ham and lazer dots. Dislikes: being on a diet, sneezes and tummy rubs.”


Sadie dog

Sadie is a Bichon Frise aged 8 months. Her person says, “She loves to play with spiders. She will put them under her paw when she gets tired to save them to play with later.”



This little Shih Tzu is called Rugby and only seven months old. His person says, “Our baby boy Rugby is a bundle of energy and absolutely loves his big sister Paige the yellow Lab.”



Rhea is a Toy Poodle and Chihuahua mix. She’s 1 year and 11 months old. Her person says, “Even though Rhea is a very little dog, she thinks she’s huge and can destroy pretty much anything. We’ve been through tons of toys, numerous socks, cardboard boxes and even a few shoes!”
