So it's another day and another confession of a Shih Tzu dog mum!
Is it just me or have you got a stubborn dog too? On our walks Portia usually choses which way to go. Yes I know what you're thinking, that's just asking for trouble, but in life she doesn't get many choices so this is hers.
If I want to walk on the other side of the road, you know for a change, to mix things up a bit, she will pull me over to the side of the road and refuse to move until I cross over. She is definitely a creature of habit! And omg you should see what she does if I decide that we don't have time for a long walk.
We have a long walkway near our house which takes us into the centre of our little town. She loves this walk as it also takes us along the river and through a small wetlands area. Definitely lots of awesome peemail to collect here. When we get to half way along there is a short cut to take us back home again, she'll give me the "look" basically saying "are we going this way today mummy" and if I give the nod. Holy moly you'd think I had just given her the keys to the treat cupboard (metaphorically of course, I don't actually lock up her treats)
But and I mean a BIG but, if I say no short walk today she'll dig those bloody little heels in and won't move. I'm sure you can understand what it's like standing and arguing with a 6 year old shih tzu that we "not going this way today". And the little ratbag knows it frustrates me too.
She's not called a little SHIT TZU for no reason.
Enjoy your wet nose kisses until the next time
