Gut! Oh my, I would have been scared out my wits! I'd be the one running off!
PhoneGirl: I know what you mean. I have an almost 5yr old Shih Tzu who I felt needed a friend/sister. I got Sophie in January, (after seeing a picture then visiting her, I was hooked) she's going on 7months, full of puppy! Once he got used to her, they played non stop whenever she was out of her crate. She just adores him. She's so affectionate, she gives him little kisses when we are walking, or if I'm giving training lessons with treats, she immediately kisses him after she's had her turn. Its adorable. The last couple of weeks, it seems the novelty has worn off. He still plays with her but not as much. After our morning walks he always played with her while I was getting ready for work. Now, he's fast asleep when I get out of the shower, and she's laying around staring at him. I thought, oh brother, do I need a 3rd one??? eeek!
BTW: she won't go up or down stairs yet. I'm sure Louie was younger than 7 mths (but I can't remember) when he started going up and down. She went up once, took me by surprise about a month ago, and has never done it again. She'll go up and down two steps off my front porch, but not the 4 going up to my mainfloor from the entrance.
