What the SHIH TZU???

This last week we were asked to dog sit. Of course we would do it, Preston has been begging for a dog forever and whenever the pet store has the dogs out front we have to see tears. This was the perfect way to let him have a dog for awhile then give him back.

They dropped him off Wed morning, and of course he was a little nervous so he went outside and decided to roll in his poop, ok Walter was still here so he cleaned him off and left, he wanted out again so we let him out and he rolled in his poop again.. SERIOUSLY!!! We sprayed him off and got smarter and had Preston go clean the poop up (hes the one who wanted the dog, he gets to clean up after him) After awhile Preston says "this is harder then I thought" DING DING DING my plan worked!! The day went on and everyone was a little over excited so it was hard to keep them calm. Wiley is house trained and sleeps in his kennel (or Kernal says Avree) so that was a great bonus until he decided to wake up at the crack of dawn and guess who had to get up with him? But how could you be mad at the face?

Ok the rest of the week was great, he slept in, he never barked, he was the perfect little dog. We actually started to really like, the only thing is.... he eats his poop!! Gross I know I got online thinking there had to be something wrong with this dog and found out that is what tons of shih tzus do.. I guess that is how they got their name hehehe!! Anyways it was hard to let the dog give kisses.

The kids absolutely loved playing with Wiley, they would take him out and run with him forever I think we wore him out pretty good, he would even go climb in the kennel by himself and go to sleep.
Wiley is gone now, it was kinda sad to see him go, I like dogs but I dont know if I am a dog owner kind of person, I had a dog all growing up and when he died it was the saddest day ever.. So for now we are dogsitters not dog owners, but we will miss you, and your little poop eating kisses!!!

Wow what a good friend you are to Dog Sit! Thats a BIG job. I am glad you all enjoyed him even though he eats his own Shih-Tzu!
