New Member and New dog owner

Hi there, thought I would jump in with an introduction. I am a new dog owner. My husband and 3 sons have been begging me for years to get a dog and I not being a dog lover have successfully resisted. About a month and a half ago I finally agreed to some very certain terms. I would pick the dog and I must not know about it's digestive system AT ALL. I was going to get a puppy because I didn't want to deal with other people's bad training etc etc. Through a bizarre set of circumstances we came to own the dog we have now who is everything I didn't want but now love so dearly I can't imagine him not living with us. His name is Ozymandias, Ozy for short LOL. He is a two year old Shihtzu crossed Bichon and a dream dog. He is loving beyond what I could have imagined, he is well behaved and loves to play and loves to snuggle in. There are the odd issues with him but in comparison to the rest of him they are nothing.
I look forward to getting to know everyone

Welcome to the forum, Segra!

I'd love to see pics of Ozy, too (and likely erykah and I won't be the last to make that request Lots of photo fans on the forum )

Just wanted to say and congrats on your new addition!

I also have tzu/bichon mix and they are adorable! Buster isn't quite the love bug I had hoped for but he is still young, so hopefully he will settle down and like snuggles too!

Welcome to the forum new dog owner! Glad Ozy converted you. And glad to hear you found a dog who wasn't a puppy to complete your family. I am sure he loves his new forever home.
