It has been more than 6 months since we said good bye to our last foster puppy and it has been over a year since our little, sweet Shih Tzu went to puppy heaven. I’m feeling the overwhelming need to add a four-legged member to our household. Although we have our 9 year old Golden Retriever who is the love of my life (if he were human I would call him my soul mate) and a beautiful 6 year old German Shepherd, I miss having a small, cuddly lap dog. Initially I thought that it would be great to go back to our breeder and get another Shih Tzu but I quickly realized that I wasn’t ready to share our life with another Shih Tzu so soon after Ming going to puppy heaven.
The hunt is on to find a breed that will fit into our lives and work well with our current 4-legged companions. I have also been thinking about getting involved with Pet Therapy so that will have a major impact on our breed decision.
