My mother is writing this for me as I cannot write. I am a 16-year-old Shih Tzu who while not completely a Prapso my mother believes I have qualities of a Prapso.
I never developed the long double coat of a Shih Tzu. Instead, mine is a single silky-curly layer that tends to stick out.
My nose and face are different, smaller and more like a bear giving me a unique look. I also have a distinct ridge above my nose, but not like a full Pekingese. I was born, the runt of a litter of seven brothers and sisters, and I am still very small, with 12-pounds being my heaviest.
I have a different gait and stand differently than other Shih Tzu, but I am very sweet as my Mommy says.
I have lived a long time. A good life. Due to my "smooshed" face. I grunt like a piglet, but my parents say it makes me their "little piggy".
I have the "flower face" when my hair gets longer, but my hair grows different, it doesn't go out it goes down so my parents keep it short.
I have also managed to learn very quickly. I do not like to play fetch, but I do like to wrestle even at my age.
I have not had the eye health issues like my brothers and sisters. Due to my size I had hernias and was underweight when I came home with my parents, but I am okay now.
I have had bladder stones and I have a cataract in one eye. I was never bred (too risky with my hernias so they took all of that out at once). Still, I am loved and I love my life no matter what I am.
