We have three Shih Tzus, but Secret is our newest baby. Upon taking our other "kids" to get groomed, my groomer/breeder showed me this little black baby Shih Tzu that she was not going to keep for showing.
The little bit of tongue sticking out is not acceptable in the show ring, but we think it is part of her wonderful personality. She has been an absolute delight and has brought much happiness to our home.
She loves to play with our other dogs and loves the throw pillows that are around for decoration. Secret pulls them from everywhere and growls and shakes them for a fun pillow fight.
My husband and I cannot imagine being without our dogs. I have always believed that having pets is one of the things that will keep you young and alive. What a delight they are.
