First Snow for the Puppy - Monkey looking for his potty spot after snow fall

Here is a video of monkey frolicking in the snow. We've been wondering how he is going to react to snow covering up the yard where he just barely got used to going potty. We are happy to report that there were no long lasting problems. There were certainly several accidents as he didnt get used to going in the snow initially. After several long waits and good treats after he went, he got used to his old grounds and fell into the old good habits again.

Here is a video of Monkey, our shitchon puppy looking for his potty spot in the first big snow fall. What a good dog.

Although there is no official entry for Shichon in Wikipedia, there is a mention here:

Wikipedia mention of Shichon

Here is what they say:

Shih Tzus are sometimes cross-bred with other toy dogs. One of the more commonly known mixed breeds of Shih Tzus are the Shih Poo[10]. The Shih Poo is a cross breed of a Shih Tzu and a toy Poodle. The "Zuchon" or "Shichon"[11] is a mix between a Shih Tzu and a Bichon Frisé. They may also be crossed with Maltese dogs. There are many other mixed breeds that include the Shih Tzu.
