My son and his wife have an adorable shih tzu, Odin. Odin has been their baby for 7 years. Last year my son and his wife added an adorable baby boy to their home. He is 14 months and into everything,including Odin's personal space.
A couple of nights ago, my son called (they live 12 hours away from us). The little shih tzu just bit the little boy on the face. The bite was not a bad one, more of a nip but they are understandably upset and worried that Odin's aggressive behavior is escalating and their baby son, who adores the dog, just doesn't seem to get it that he needs to leave Odin alone.
Gramzi and Popzi to the rescue! Dah dah ta dah! Odin is coming to live with us for a few months. It looks like this weekend is good traveling weather. Important information since we will be traveling through Montana, Wyoming and possibly Colorado. They are going to try to meet us part way. Or we may be spared the trip by a buddy who is already down there.
My little self induced crazy life will be rocking with another little guy to look after. At least he gets along well with our own shih tzu and he is only 7lbs, so he won't take up too much more space between us in bed. hahaha. AND I have another walking partner…a sassy one.
