    Apparently Sharpei x anything else has problems. Tigger has had is eyelids pinned back as a puppy, but pepper hasnt had that, but shes fine. Except for the genetic sharpei fever, but shes had that once since we had her.

    We actually had tigger as a puppy, but he was already really big. Because he was neutered when he was a puppy, he has stayed a puppy in terms of personality etc, and behavior. Something to do with hormones. Boy is he all legs!

    They are sure not tiny any more, but still cute.

    Tigger is the youngest, he is only 3 years or 3 1/2 years now. He is an American Sharpei and is known as a Horsecoat because of his brittle, prickly (and irritating!) coat.

    Pepper is the oldest, she is almost 11 (Sharpeis typically have a lifespan of around 10-12 years). Pepper is an Australian Sharpei, and she is a brushcoat because of her medium length fur. Too bad Pepper is not very good for taking pictures of! I caught Tigger during his early bed time!

    BTW Devan, Yours is such a little cutie! Congratulations!
    I love the way he makes these little "nests", both him and Pepper do it. Like this blanket: I will usually lay it out on the floor, and he will come along and scrape it into a bunch. Then he will go round and round on the bunch flattening the middle. The nest is made!
