LadyLA, nothing more wonderful than those little fur balls! Yours seems to be much better potty trained than many. Mine still have an occasional accident and they are 7 and 8 years old! Good for you. You won't be able to let her go to grandkids. She becomes one of your own children after a while. What is her name?

My name is Jeanne (pronounced Jean ee); I live in eastern Washington State.

I got my first Shih Tzu about a month ago. I love her so much. She is definitely a snuggle bug. She barks and when I bend down she stands on her hind legs so I can pick her up easier. She is pretty small at 13 weeks. Hopefully she will stay on the small side. She loves to be rocked. She lays on her back in my arms and lets me hold her like a baby. She will follow me around and bark at me until I pick her up. She loves to be held. She is already house trained and will hold it all night and all day while I am at work. She has a wire cage with a tray on the bottom that is 48" x 30". She has her food and water and bed in there and she doesn't mind it at all. If I am home she is out. I have a pad by the door and if I can't take her out due to the weather, she will always go to the pad and not go on the floor. I have tile. Maybe if it was carpet, it might be different. I got her for my grandkids, but I am not sure I will be able to let her go.

My two tzus also like to travel. We spend summers on the Oregon coast and winter inland, and they are always anxious to go wherever we are. VERY easy travelers, except they both want to sit up front. That is the only problem. I finally made a "lap board" so they can both sit on my lap at the same time and see out the front.

This group is pretty inactive, but it is always nice to meet another shih Tzu lover!

NINJA AND KARMA SOUND ADORABLE, ROBIN.

MY NAME IS PAT. WE HAVE A BLACK AND WHITE-14 YEAR OLD -IN JUNE THIS YEAR- SHIH TZU , NAMED POOCHIE. HE THINKS HE'S A PUPPY BETWEEN NAPS, THAT IS. HE LOVES TO TRAVEL WITH US

. SLEEPS ON THE FOOT OF OUR BED WHERE EVER WE ARE.

TELLS US WHEN HE WANTS TO GO OUT BY COMING TO STARE AT WHO EVER IS AVAILABLE.
DANCES WHEN WE ASK HIM IF THAT IS WHAT HE WANTS. DOES THE SAME WHEN HE THINKS ITS TIME TO BE FED.

HAS RARELY MESSED IN THE HOUSE. WHEN HE HAS BEEN CAUGHT AT HOME TOO LONG ALONE-HE HAS GONE IN THE SHOWER. ( WE THINK THAT IS BRILLIANT! :)
ALSO WHEN WE WALK HIM HE HAS NEVER DONE HIS JOB ON THE GRASS. ALWAYS HAS TO HAVEA BUSH TO GO AGAINST!

WE TRAVEL BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN OUR SUMMER HOME IN NORTH AND OUR WINTER HOME IN TEXAS. HE ALWAYS KNOWS WHEN WE ARE WITHIN FEW BLOCKS OF HOME AND THEN AFTER SNIFFING EXCITEDLY AT THE VENT IN CAR- JUMPS DOWN ON FLOOR WHEN WE REACH OUR STREET READY TO GET OUT! THIS IS AFTER TRAVELING 3 DAYS IN CAR. . HE HAS DONE THIS FOR MANY YEARS.

HE IS EQUALLY DEVOTED TO BOTH DH AND ME. BUT HE IS NOT A LAP DOG. WHEN WE CALL HIM TO COME HE JUMPS UP ON THE COUCH. INSTEAD.

UNLIKE OUR DD'S SCHNAUZER- WHO WANTS A LAP WHEN EVER ONE IS AVAILABLE.

PLEASE TELL US IF OTHER SHIH- TZUS HAVE SIMILAR TALENTS :)
PAT

My name is Robin and I have two Shih Tzus. My oldest was a Christmas Present in 2010 for me from my husband. His name is Ninja. He Will Three October 26. He is gold and white with some black on his face, ears and tail. He is very smart and a mama's boy. Our Girl is Karma and was a Christmas present for our daughter in 2012. She will be 1 on October 6. She is a silver brindle. She is goofy and fun loving, she loves everyone, such a sweet little girl. They both bring me a lot of joy.
