Awesome, I for years was a one dog at a time person.....When my first shih tzu (bentley) grew older, we got another dog, a collie (named Logan, who passed away this past october). My logan was hands down the best dog ive ever had, and it made getting over bentley a little easier (not that I didn't love bentley), but when bentley passed, and logan was still a puppy (around 1 year), we had to get another dog because he was so depressed. So my mom wanted another shih tzu, so we got hollie. When logan passed away in October, I decided to go ahead and get another dog because I missed having "my" dog since the shih tzu was my moms.....if that makes sense.
I have truthfully been to the dog park once, with cooper. I absolutely loved it, and once he gets a tad older, we'll go back!! I was really unsure about the breed, but now im absolutely nuts about them!
