Because he's our dog (our son Gabe has joint custody with us!), and he's cute, and he's a Shih Tzu!
The Shih Tzu/Icelandic Connection
What is the connection? Here is my theory: the Icelandic horse has the Tolt--the fifth gait that is s-o-o-o smooth (see earlier posting). So, have you seen the dog shows on TV, where the Shih Tzus are all tarted up with long, flowing hair and silly bows? And have you noticed that they glide along, with a super-smooth gait? I believe that the Shih Tzu gait is the dog equivalent of the Icelandic horse tolt! Is that brilliant?
Who is the Mary, and who is the Rhoda?
Me or Foo...your comments welcome!
