Douglas the Shih-Tzu King Charles Spaniel

My iMac was acting a bit funny last week — it had slowed down considerably during processing so this took longer than usual to publish.

Last Tuesday, I got to meet and photograph Douglas and his 'parents', Naoko and Ren. He's one very lucky dog whose mum is the creator and proprietor of Sydney's first pet restaurant, Chew Chew! I got to hang out while Douglas had his brunch — a meal freshly prepared by his Mum.

I must say I got hungry at the sight and smell of Douglas' meal, and got hungrier when I watched Douglas eat.

After his morning walk, Douglas usually hangs out helping mum work the mouse on her laptop, while dad works quietly in the background. He does this at night too when his 'parents' are back from work.

Douglas or Doug, is a Shih-Tzu Cavalier King Charles Spaniel — I just LOVE how unique he looks. He turned 5 years old on 1st October, and still looks like a spring chicken.

I can't get over how adorable, friendly and well-behaved Douglas is. It's no wonder, his 'parents' are wonderful human beings; humble, friendly, kind, hard-working and animal lovers. Thank you Douglas, Naoko and Ren for a fun  morning — I had a great time!

  1. Nice. I like the laptop one!

    Looks like a good life there :)

  2. great photos, they bring out Douglas's teeth quite well. The meal time pose makes him almost human in appearance.

  3. Thank you both for dropping by!

    Douglas is one big character in that tiny body!
    It's no wonder he's very much loved by his 'parents' :)
