I really could just end my post here - that picture says it all! Ok, ok. You talked me into it - I'll go on. That is a picture of the final member of my pack, my sister Mimi. Mimi is the grumpiest Shih-Tzu on the planet. Allow me to explain. Mimi does not like dogs. Mimi does not like most humans. Mimi does not like anyone, except for my human dad.
Now, I know what you're going to say, "well, Mimi is just getting old, and that's what happens." Nope. That's not it. See, Mimi has been grumpy her whole life; she doesn't even like Christmas! Who doesn't like Christmas?! Grinchy Mimi, that's who!
I know, you think I am being
a jealous french bulldog unfair. Well, how about this one: she has to sit on a "throne". No, no - Mimi will not sit with the common dogs. She perches herself on top of a pillow to view the plebeians. And she'll sit like this for hours. HOURS.
Well, maybe Mimi isn't all THAT bad. She's actually really cute, and the one time a year when she wants to play, she is really fun. I guess it could be worse. She could be the thug pug! Do you have any grumpy pets in your house?
Maybe I need to invest in this book to better understand the Grump that is Mimi. Check it out and let me know what you think!
