Tea Cup Size , Not All Tea Cups Are the Same | Eli Tea | Detroit USA
One of the hottest commodities currently on the market are so-called teacup dogs. These dogs are miniature versions of already-small breeds such as the Beagle, Maltese, Chihuahua, or Yorkie. After all, people love tiny electronic devices, bite-sized snacks, and other miniaturized goodies. Why not extra-small dogs as well?
While it might sound great to own a dog who never grows beyond puppy size, there are three compelling reasons to ignore the hype and sit this fad out. The issues with these dogs begin before they are even born. Fraud is another issue. Of course, with any dog breed, there are going to be irresponsible breeders. However, because many reputable dog breeders refuse to sell teacups, this market in particular is wide open for sleazebags. Every breed is prone to certain diseases and disorders, but the list of issues for teacups is long and severe. In one category, there are health issues directly related to their unnaturally small size.
In another, there are problems that come from inbreeding and other sketchy practices of backyard breeders. No article about teacup breeds can fail to mention hypoglycemia low blood sugar , which can cause seizures and death if not carefully monitored. Many teacups have to be fed several times a day or more precisely for this reason. Other common health issues include liver shunts, hydrocephalus water on the brain , heart problems, and respiratory problems. These women were both so strong, had bounced back from life's knocks and come out better for it. But then I suppose, somehow, with their help, I had done the same.
The Vintage Teacup Club
At times I tried to slow my regular reading pace down in an attempt to delay the inevitable, the final pages. Unfortunately, despite my efforts, it was still over too soon. However, the novel was a delightful read while it lasted and it has left me with some fantastic inspirational ideas such as forming a friendship club around vintage teacups, or collecting them for my own wedding… one day.

This is a sweet story about the power of friendship and what makes a romance last. Apr 29, Zoe Hartgen rated it really liked it. This little bit of perfect has brought me out of my reading slump! I loved this book, well I must have reading it in less than a day. The friendships between Jenny, Maggie and Alison are wonderful and it felt like a true, genuine thing. The writing style was lovely, easy and flow magnificently.
Like Vanessa Greene's other books, this one is just magical. Aug 30, PrettyFlamingo rated it really liked it. I thoroughly enjoyed this as a nice easy comfort read. It was undemanding whilst remaining interesting and proved to me that a book can be enjoyable without any high drama, violence or crime. As it featured a few of my favourite things - cake, vintage, friendship, flowers and business start-ups in a cute country setting - it was a sure fire hit.

I enjoyed the way the three leads Jenny, Alison and Maggie became firm friends and supported and looked out for each other as well as their families, though there were some unfinished storyline strands in the end - Lucy and Jack's wedding for one. I downloaded the short novella Tuesdays at the Teacup Club to read immediately afterwards which felt rather like an epilogue of the main book than a story in its own right, and ended a little too abruptly.
I'd like to catch up with the characters a few years down the line as I enjoyed meeting them all. Oct 23, Trish rated it it was ok. I really wanted to like this one. There were so many user reviews that rated this at 5 stars and described it as 'heartwarming' and, it was our number one bestseller within two weeks of release.
This, I thought, was going to be the next The Help For me, I think it was an expectations thing - I was expecting 'vintage', quirky, Frankie-meets-Marieke-Hardy-witty observation I really wanted to like this one.
For me, I think it was an expectations thing - I was expecting 'vintage', quirky, Frankie-meets-Marieke-Hardy-witty observations on the lives of contemporary women and instead I got chick lit by numbers. The last 50 pages were great - there was tension, action, the interesting characters came to the fore - and if the whole book had been like that then it would have been a 4-star 'heartwarming' delight.
It took about pages before I actually cared about the characters. The second third of the book was well paced and I was invested on the lives of the characters. The novel is told from the eyes of three strangers who bond over a tea set.
Not a lot of substance, it dragged a bit for the first pages or so, and then seemed to rush at the end. I will admit this was completely a cover buy. Side note: This was chosen for a weekend read along and I do think the process of reading it as a group, with photo prompts and embracing the theme of coziness made the book worth the read and quite enjoyable.
Final Rating: 2. Nov 02, Lucinda rated it it was amazing. Classic chick-lit that is quintessentially British, so elegant and delightful that makes for an absorbing read.

This is a story about three very distinctive characters of varying ages that have many contrasting experiences within life, and yet are connected in the most curious and unexpected way. The strong, supportive bond that is created between the three characters is a joy to encounter and especially when the age barrier is broken, professing that it is of no consequence in a lasting friendship. As you explore each character in detail you at times feel as if you are holding up a mirror to yourself, as the writing is quite poignant and truth-drawing.
I was able to connect with each individual character and relate and empathize with them, as I read about their lives and tensions that are designed to push them to breaking point.
2. Teacup dogs suffer from a litany of health problems
Dealing with friendships and families, relationships and careers, highs and lows and ups and downs The Vintage Teacup is such heartwarming, beautifully un-clandestine so overt storytelling at its very best. This wonderful book is an absolute treasure, a jewel amongst its genre and a captivating read that perfectly depicts what the novel is all about; those strong bonds of friendship that are so important within all our lives.
I am so impressed by Vanessa Green whose stunning, beautiful book has exceeded and surpassed all of my predispositions towards this genre and which is just so astonishing for a first novel. I cannot enthuse enough about this magnificent book that I strongly urge you to read, and which has found a very special place right at the top of my bookshelf.

The three women soon realise that they can help each other out and The Vintage Teacup Club is formed. I thought the three lead characters were all lovely and immediately warmed to each of them. There is plenty to identify with in Maggie, Jenny and Alison and their lives and I think that this is a book that will appeal to a wide range of readers.
There is also a lovely cast of supporting characters in The Vintage Teacup Club. I loved Ruby and Derek, the elderly couple that the girls meet on their teacup search and I thought their story was so romantic. I was also impressed that with one exception, the male characters in the book were as lovely as the female ones — very refreshing! As you can probably tell, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and was sad when it ended.
The Vintage Teacup Club is classic, warm British chick lit at its best and a wonderful debut. Highly recommended! Jun 26, Jenna Vidal rated it it was ok. I couldn't finish this book fast enough and it was not because I liked it. Quite the opposite I thought it was so awful and pointless I just wanted to get it done so I could start on something else.
I used to think just about anyone could write a half decent chick lit book. Having read quite a few I have even be tempted to try one myself. I think this book really shows us that there is a craft to it and this book was not well crafted at all. It was really horrible and here's why: 1 There was no I couldn't finish this book fast enough and it was not because I liked it. It was really horrible and here's why: 1 There was no definitive story - it was all over the place. What story there was was truly awful. These ladies meet out of the blue and decide to be friends because they all like teacups?
Are you serious. They barely say a word to each other and next thing they are just "popping" around to each other's houses. How sad and lonely can you be.
