Back at the beginning of the month, we said goodbye to our 17 1/2 year old Shih Tzu Gizmo. We loved Gizmo with all our heart and were sad to say so long.
A few days later we went on Spring Break and had fun in the Florida sun. Then came back to the Midwest to slay the ski slopes in Lutsen, MN.
While we were away I was secretly searching for a new Shih Tzu puppy.

Tom and I had talked about waiting until mid-summer to get a new dog. Or at least wait until after we get our feet wet raising chickens. However, as soon as we got home from our travels, the house wasn’t quite the same without a furry friend.
I reached out to a few different breeders inquiring about upcoming Shih Tzu litters. I heard back from one breeder immediately and she just so happened to have one female puppy available.
She answered all my questions and sent me a few pictures and videos. I knew as soon as I laid eyes on her that she was going to be ours. I just had to convince Tom (it didn’t take much).
Ten days later we got ourselves an 11-week old, 3 lb., Shih Tzu puppy we named Gidget. She’s the cutest little thing and we’re all in love.
