ALERT: GeoCities closed all free sites on October 26, 2009. Please be sure to bookmark this Angelfire (that I wisely(!) created originally as a backup back in Feb. of '01) site, as it will take the place of GeoCities as the Page and no longer a mirrored backup.

What is a Shih Tzu?
"A dash of Lion, several teaspoons of Rabbit, a couple ounces of old Chinese men, a bit of Beggar, a tablespoon of monkey, one part Baby Seal, and a dash of Teddy Bear."
James E. Mumford
(Thanks to Alli (& Cassey) for supplying the above quote!)
My Heart Belongs to a Shih Tzu- her duster tail and beard, Bright expressive eyes- The Shih Tzu is devoted, Intelligent and wise. Loving and courageous, A friend that's always true- A dog that brightens each new day, And makes the dark skies blue. Bewhiskered face and trailing coat- The Shih Tzu stands apart. The moment that I saw that face, I quickly lost my heart.
Somewhat stubborn and oh-so-easy to spoil, the Shih Tzu is one of dogdom's happiest breeds.
