(This post was inspired by THIS post. The sheer desperation of Clare AND THE ALL CAPS is what shoved this one through, BTW.) Anyway. To welcome in Rule # 58, (“If You’re Flyin’ With One Flap Up, That’s Cute” aka “The Paisley Rule,”) we have this email just in from Holly H. “If ‘One Flap Up’ is going to be a thang, let me introduce Luigi. He came to visit us on while we were shooting ‘Home Free in Atlanta‘ and we kept him cool in the makeup trailer. His ear fringe is delightful! He was a master of ‘One Flap Up’ and looking a bit guilty!

The Shichon Phenomenon Continues

oscarIt’s been a day or two since we’ve had a new Shichon photo, right? No prob, Kimberly O. to the rescue.

“I’ve actually never heard of a Shichon either…typically the Shih-tzu/Bichons are called “Teddy Bears,” she writes. “This is a birthday cake I made for my husband John….he said he wanted a cake that looked like Oscar, so…that’s what he got.”

“He is ball obsessed and pretty much always has one in his mouth.”
