i bet someone in here knows a thing or two about ankle biters.
my family has always been a dog family. my mother has owned several shih tzus. the last was Maximus the General who passed about 12 months ago.
my mom has finished grieving. she told me she couldn't have another shih tzu after Maximus but that she was interested in a yorkie. my parents are retired. spend half the year traveling the country in a monster RV. and the other half doing projects around the house or visiting me in CA. it hasn't been the same for them without a dog.
i'm hoping someone will suggest a solid breeder in the LA/OC/IE area. and maybe i can surprise her when they visit this Christmas.
