    Oh this is so sweet! What a cutie! Love the colors which are perfect against his/her b & w coat and those puppy dog eyes have captured me!

    I need to know, what kind of doggie is this? He is adorable and so good to just sit there and pose!

  • My first reply was to say that he was a border collie, but I think more like that he is a Shih Tzu

    So true about them ending up in shelters. People often don’t realize the commitment involved. Thank you for the reminder and this beautiful image!
