I’m a One-Person Dog

Shih Tzu Dog on a Dog Bed

My Mama is away right now for a job interview, and I really miss her.

I don’t know if you realize this, but Shih Tzu tend to be a “one-person dog.” Shih Tzus are very loyal dogs who love everyone and everything, but we tend to get overly attached and overly lovey-dovey with one person in the house. For me, this is my Mama.

When she is home, I am always with her in the same room  – unless I’m looking out the window in the living room, of course. I sleep next to my Mama in the bed. I lie next to her chair when she’s writing in her office. I’m sitting on her lap when she’s watching TV in the living room. I follow her to the bathroom and lay on the ground when she’s doing her business. When she’s bathing, I am also nearby – but not too close, since I hate getting wet.

As you can imagine, I miss my Mama like crazy when she’s gone.

When you coming home, Mama?

Mama decided not to take me on this trip, since it will be quite short – only a few days – and she didn’t want me to feel stressed moving from place to place. (Plus, secretly I think she didn’t want me to distract her!)  I guess it’s for the best, and she does think of me . . . The home environment is best for me.

Still, I really miss my Mama like crazy.

Don’t I just look super sad?

Hurry home, Mama.

    Everything about this article is exactly the kind of relationship that I have with Shih Tzu. He is my little angel dog!
