Not all Dogs are Lap Dogs
by Ken Weeks
Our 7 year old Shih-Tzu is an 8 lb Imperial. She is female, was spayed @ 9 mos, and prefers to be with us both no matter where we are, indoors or outdoors. Her Name is Tinker.
She sleeps most of the time but she does enjoy pleasing us.
But that's another story. She is definitely "NOT" a lap dog. She will get next to us on couch or in bed, but she doesn't enjoy being picked up.
She allows us to pick her up to put her in car. She will get on my wife's lap to look out the window, but that's the closest that she get's to being a "lap" dog.
Great dog and get's along well with our Male 95lb Golden Retriever, Tucker.
