Chou Chou's Q & A


Q: Your hair looks different colors in different pictures. Are they photoshopped?

A: ("No, no shopping! Briards change colors. I was a dark, reddish little puppy, and now I am a big puppy in my 'light phase.'")

Clever Puppy Learns Something New

Chou Chou Visits Little Tinsel



I had some new pants I wanted shorter, so I turned to Couture Designs, to see my friend Kim and her little dog, Tinsel. Chou Chou came along to play. The two dogs met in a Tricks puppy training class last year.

A Walk, a Chore, and a Dog Training Class
