The Common Crape myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica) from China and Korea, was introduced circaCharleston, South Carolina, in the United States by the French botanist Andre Michaux. In the wild the species is most often found as a multi-stemmed large shrub, but two hundred years of cultivation has resulted in a huge number of cultivars of widely varying characteristics. Today it is possible to find crape myrtles to fill every landscape need, from tidy street trees to dense barrier hedges all the way down to fast-growing dwarf types of less than two feet which can go from seed to bloom in a season (allowing gardeners in places where the plant is not winter hardy to still enjoy the intense colors of the frilly flowers). In Europe crape myrtle is common in the south of France, the Iberian Peninsula and all of Italy; in the United States it can be seen anywhere south of USDA Zone 6, doing best and avoiding fungal diseases in mild climates that are not overly humid such as inland California and Texas. In some parts of Texas, the Crape myrtle is also known as a Cuddle Tree.
I am Jacob, and I am 3 and am the baby of the family
I am mostly Lhasa Apso, but we think I may have a little something mixed in!
We aren't sure what all I am...Some lhasa here, some poodle there, maybe some havanese, maybe some terrier. I am mostly Jacob.

Mama was going to make me SHARE this meme that we saw over at Mango the RH's place with Dory and Jacob. I DID remind her that it is Tuesday with BILBO and NOT Tuesday with every puppy. So she says I can do this MEME today and the OTHER puppies can do it on Thursday. Good work Mama...See, humans can be trained if you just put your paw down!

I have had this toy since I was a little tyke and it helps me find my way when I am lost at night.
I am not big on snacks although I do like my 2 scheduled cookies...The first one when Mama takes a shower in the morning and the other before Mama leaves the house for the first time of the day. I usually won't eat cookies any other time.
I am 100% Mama's Boy
I go potty in the house...I don't know why it is a bad habit, but Mama seems to think there is something wrong with me going potty anywhere but outside. Mama...if you don't have to go potty outside, why should I??
Going anywhere in public with my 2 silly siblings
