“Our family always has always had a strong affirmation for big breeds. My dad was never too fond of small breeds until we rescued Jimmy, a Spitz Pomeranian. We found him outside our gate. As time passed he grew on my father and became the house’s favorite.
In October 2013, we were blessed with a beautiful three-month-old Shih Tzu. He was barely the size of my palm! We, including Jimmy, dived into taking up different responsibilities when it came to taking care of Oreo as Jimmy was a parental figure when it came to Oreo. He taught Oreo everything he knows today, apart from the mischief and several tricks he’s always got up his sleeve!
Unfortunately, Jimmy passed away when he was 14 years old and left us with a huge void in our hearts. He was truly a special member of our family. Oreo too experienced the pain of losing Jimmy as he was always around to take care. My mother, Rita, is extremely active in Animal Welfare groups on social media platforms. She’s always finding loving homes for pets who have nowhere to go. One day she came across Pete, who had been abandoned by his family under a foster care service. Hence we all as a family, yes Oreo too, decided to bring this two-year-old Pekingese into our lives.
Pete has a completely different nature as compared to Oreo and he’s full of energy, extremely active, and loves frolicking around the house. He waits to greet anyone and everyone who visits our home. Oreo, on the other hand, loves being by himself, doing his own thing. In fact, we think he takes me time a bit too seriously a lot of times. Initially, because of their contrasting temperaments, it was a bit of a struggle to take care of them both and today they are two brothers in arms. We feel they two compliments each other really well, so we call them our bundle of joy because of how much happiness they bring into our lives. After a tiring and stressful day at work, their presence makes our lives and hearts full!”
