That eye looks so innocent right? Meet Quincy! This little guy weighs-in anywhere between 5 and 5 half pounds depending on how many cookies he has eaten in the past few days. He is just over 2 years old and rules the house. He is a trans-kitty. He is a cat in a dogs body. He has an attitude as big as manhattan and "talks" ALL day long. He only wants to be snuggled on his terms and god-forbid I have other plans that interrupt his agenda. He will continue to harass, talk, bark and bounce off of your legs until you give him the attention he wants.
I got him as a pup. I had recently lost my precious english bulldog Mr. Magoo on Christmas day in 2016. I swore I wasn't going to get another dog. I lasted about 4 weeks and the house felt so empty. So my family encouraged me to get a shih tzu. My sister had one and my niece was championing the cause. The running joke in the house now is... " They said get a shih tzu!" I say this as I am put my palm to my head.
Quincy is named after my Mr. Magoo. And my Magoo is named after the cartoon Mister Magoo. Well, long story short I wanted a connection to my gentle souled comedic Magoo. Quincy is the cartoon characters first name. Hence, my lil terrorist is named Quincy Boo Boo. He is the anti-thesis of gentle soul. Because my english bully was also such a character, I wanted another character in the house. What I got was a full on DIVA! The warning signs were there early on. I got Quincy from a breeder. (My first time ever doing that, I have always rescued even Magoo) Well, I went to the breeders and met Quincy when he was 6 weeks old. Boy did he have character. Climbed all over his litter mates and cute as a button. I made plans to pick him up on Friday when he was 8 weeks old. Well, this little terrorist became a houdini at the breeders and I was called the 7th week to please come pick up Quincy because he was escaping his kennel and causing problems! It was like getting a call from the principals office and come and get your naughty kid.
I do love my little terrorist and we recently went back to the same breeder to get Quincy a sibling. I originally wanted a little girl but when I walked in there were 3 older puppies who hadn't been adopted and I simply feel in love with Max. He is in some of the pictures below. But I will introduce you to max in the near future. They are my partners in crime, fur-babies and keep me on a very tight schedule. Potty does NOT wait for mama to sleep in. I hope your home is full of as much love and adventure as mine!
