Pollock got a new little sister in July of 2011. Her name is Parker and she is also a teddybear (shichon).
Our granddog is very grateful we joined this group. Although he plays happily with dogs both large and small, we can see that it is a much more enjoyable interaction when he is with his own size - he is less apprehensive when the playing gets wild. It seems that even though large dogs are in fact playing, more growling, snapping and rough play is sometimes be involved which can confuse a little dog into thinking he may really need to defend himself. This takes away some of the carefree fun - something we have observed with our little guy. (But don't tell him, he thinks he is a "big" dog!)
