Our youngest puppy is Max, he is currently three and he's a Shih Tzu.
He goes by many names, including Maximus Prime, Maxman, and the ever popular MAAAXX. He is our only baby who we got from a local family who sell Shih Tzu's, definitely not a puppy mill. Max is the youngest of our family. He has two doggy sisters, Sissy and Harriet, two kitty sisters, Millie and Miley, and one kitty brother, Frankie. Max is a tiny ball of energy and teases the cat's in the family, the one's that allow it, usually Miley and Frankie. His favorite cat is Millie, she's like the magical unicorn he can never reach.
Max's favorite chew toy is a cat's ear if we actually allowed him to eat them.
His favorite toy is ball ball or Mr. Squeaky, which is a tiny basketball with you guess it an annoying squeaker. When he carries ball ball around in his mouth he looks like he has a big orange smile, too cute. When these don't satisfy him he has rawhides and of course our hands, which he wants the most and is a little concerning. He loves playing tug of war and keep away, which is his favorite.
Max is a tough little man.
He has to be since he is the smallest of our doggies. Sissy towers over him and he frequently passes under her to get the best views. He acts like a little Napolean, show me a small dog who doesn't. But he knows also he is the low man on the totem pole. It's cute at dinner time he usually hangs back away from the table unless called upon. But there are times when he gets a front row seat to dinner at least until the other doggies show up.
