Six months a former colleague posted a picture on her facebook page. She called it, “My Dark Knights”. In it 2 dark furred puppies were featured. I looked at it and fell in love. Thankfully, my friend was more than willing to give me one of her knights and five months ago, I took my little star home for the first time.
My pet is a shihpoo – half shih tzu, half poodle mix. She looks so well dressed with her dark fur, white bib and white gloved paws. She is not a noisy dog and is very loving. She is smart and loves to show off her tricks though we still need to get her to really do them on command.
Having this little one around is both a blessing and a test in patience. She is a sweet companion, usually following me around, and is very entertaining. She can be very mischievous (naturally) and loves to play pounce. She loves to dig in her water bowl – often soaking her feet in it rather than drinking. I often wonder if she is wishing we have a swimming pool.
For those who are thinking of getting a pet but live in an apartment or condominium, I can definitely recommend getting a shihpoo like her. She doesn’t need a lot of space, just some TLC. She definitely makes my day.
