I have five new purebred Shih Tzu babies. They are three weeks old. The pups’ names are Jeff, Ginger, Macy, Ruby and Zoe (pictured above). It was quite a challenge getting them all in the hats that I made, and to capture a photo with them all asleep at the same time! Submitted by Suzan K.
Here is Mom with her babies…
Since these dogs are still young, I am still looking for the best shampoo for Shih Tzu that I can use for them. I understand that a Shih Tzu’s skin is still very delicate, and their fur is still growing, which is why I am still having a hard time choosing.
I scheduled a session with my vet to hear their suggestions – these puppies are very dear to me, and I don’t want to take any chances. The market might be full of shampoos for this dog breed, but for now, I will trust the advice of my vet before choosing. I don’t want to buy any shampoo for them and then regret the decision afterward.

Aside from making sure that these puppies are clean, I am also looking for the best dog bed for Shih Tzu. A bed is essential for the puppies’ health as this can affect the duration and quality of their sleep, and how their bodies will replenish any lost energy during the day.
There are a lot of dog beds available today, but I am still having a hard time figuring out which factors to prioritize in choosing. Should I just consider the price of the bed? Or is the quality and brand more critical? What are the do’s and don’ts in buying dog beds?
