Your Precious Pet: Yeb-Bbi the Shih Tzu

Please take pet ownership seriously, and honestly share what you know about your pet. I always say, "if everyone would realize that pets are a real, living, responsibilities and not an item that is owned or disposable, then maybe more animals will have better lives.”

I have a sincere love for animals. I love to learn and talk about them. Since I have come to the end of being able to feature my wonderful pets, I am moving on to featuring your precious pets. So grab yourself a cup of coffee or tea, and maybe a tissue, sit back, get to know and enjoy these wonderful blessings we call pets but are truly a part of our families.

I would like you to meet Yeh-Bbi. She is a 4 year old Shih Tzu. Her name means “pretty” in Korean. Her owner, Sean, adopted her from the Happy Angels Dog Rescue. HADR rescues dogs from Korea where they are raised for food.

Sean is totally devoted to his precious Yeh-Bbi. He says her best traits are “too many to list,” and “she is flawless.“ Her personality is always adorable, lovable, and playful. She is always making him smile. Yeb-Bbi loves to go for walks, especially to brunch. She goes everywhere with her family, sometimes walking and sometime riding in her stroller. Once she was enjoying her walk, when she decided she had had enough and jumped into her stroller. A few of her favorite things are her butterfly toy and goldfish crackers. Sean says, “she is afraid of the grass,” and "that it was probably something that had to do with her time in Korea."

Sean Camargo is the owner of Camargo Creations. The name was chosen to connect who he is and what he does. He says, “my business is a labor of love and I want people to know that my items are handmade by me.” At Camargo Creations, Sean, creates dog clothes, collars, dog accessories, and dog-themed totes. Sean started making his creations after he and his wife adopted a Maltese, Sugar. He said, “She was malnourished and her hair had been shaved down completely. We couldn’t find any clothes that were cute, functional and small enough to fit her. So I sewed something for her. That was when I realized that I could combine my tremendous love of dogs and my sewing skills.” Unfortunately, Sugar passed this year from heart failure, but Sean creates in her memory. Yeb-Bbi is also an inspiration to his designs, and often keeps him company by sleeping in her little bed next to his sewing machine. Sean loves making dresses best because he can explore with different designs and embellishments. He also adds a d-ring to his dresses so they can double as a harness.

  1. Great post! Always fun to learn a little more about a team member. Yeh-Bbi is such a lucky doll to have found Sean!

  2. I am loving getting to know people and their pets in these articles. Through Yeb-Bbi's story, I learned about dog farming. I knew some countries ate dog, but I never thought they were farmed for food.

  3. yeh-bbi so totally deserves a doted upon life with sean & his wife! thanks for sharing their story.

  4. It's nice to read stories with happy endings, thank you! What an inspiring story of human compassion. We need more people like Sean & his wife in this world. Nothing can compare to the unconditional love of a dog.
    Puppy kisses & tail wags!

  5. I am so glad you rescued precious Yeh-Bbi! That's horrible - I had no idea. Also, I learned how Sean got started with his Etsy shop, which I always love the background stories! So thrilled you began sewing such marvelous dog items!
