Shih Poo Tales

Hullo Everyone today first a bit of
by Gypsy Joy aka the “Blog Muse”
She loves the little garden folks!
“That’s true Little Lion”
Without further ado now over to “Book News”.
Some years ago I purchased a Canadian-Dutch heritage book:
“Brabanders in Canada” by J. Dortmans.
This week I started re-reading it.
I never shun an occasion that brings
a smile and fine memories.
Find the book… (clue) close to Little Lion.
If you do send him an e-mail at
It brought me to other Dutch “follies”
that bring a painter’s smile and a vision
of large fresh Brabanter eggs
collected for a tasty breakfast,
and a painter’s vision:
Little Lion would like to herd
a Brabanter clan.
The little rascal also did his
Charlie Chaplin Dance
when I showed him a pair of Dutch clogs.
Now our sweet, happy companion Shi Poo
wants Dutch clogs from St. Nicholas!
he wants to stay in touch with the Dutch!
The little rascal watched the video below
and now he has a fondness for
“Dutch Wooden Shoes.”
So he can fly like the sweet heroine
in the wooden shoe tale. LOL!
The little bugger started a
Tall-Tall Woof-Woof conversation
to put “Dutch Fancy Clogs” on his
Santa list and to mail it right away,
to deliver that evening a set of
Dutch magic wooden shoes for him,
so they can be delivered by Santa Claus
in Canada on Christmas Eve.
Can you believe it!
Little Lion can be very strong willed!
But hey, he is the apple of my eye…
how can I refuse!
He is also a terrific guardian of our homestead,
and most of the times not demanding.
As well he is a good humored sweetheart.
A snappy photographer as you see here below when
he snapped his best friend Empress Zoe Labrador.

Little Lion wants the last word!
He is pawing at a quote by his favorite
When in doubt, sweat it out.
