We all love spending time with our animals but the truth is, we just can’t take them everywhere! The second you get home, you see the instant joy on their faces as they run up to you and greet you after a long day of work, or even just a 20 minute trip to the grocery store. But what we don’t see is them longingly waiting for our arrival.
Every once in a while we can catch their pathetic behaviors before they spot us so take a look at these silly animals and our guess at what’s going through their head.
You really didn’t want to take me?
This wine really helps to pass the time!
I’ve resorted to staring at my reflection
I guess we can try being friends for the time being
How much longer?
Did I hear a door?
You can’t expect me to be patient all day!
You finally made it home!!!
I’m really not this pathetic…
Rainy days don’t make this wait any easier!
Does the waiting ever end?
We’re soooo hungry… even though we just ate
Why can’t I come?
This feather is supposed to entertain me all day?
I couldn’t keep my eyes open any longer!

A designer dog, the Shih Tzu Maltese mix is small, adorable dog. Resultant of a cross between a Maltese dog, and a Shih Tzu, the Maltese Shih Tzu mix dog is also called a hybrid dog. Hybrid dogs are the ones that are bred by crossing 2 pure bred, or mix bred breed to create a genetically superior breed, such that it has positive traits from both parents. The mix in this case also has higher immunity to the diseases its parents are prone to, and have a longer healthier life span.
Also called Shih-tese, and Shihtese, a full grown Maltese Shih Tzu mix dog weights hardly 15 pounds, and is about 14 inches tall. A very playful and sturdy dog, their eager to please nature makes them very easy to train. Gutsy and sociable, they love attention and affection, and literally thrive on it. This aspect of their nature can easily make them spoilt brats. If they get used to being carried everywhere, making them walk will be a task.
What the cross dog looks like is largely dependent on who the dominant parent is. This can be understood by studying the parents of the cross and their traits. A slightly detailed study of both the parents can lead to greater understanding of the Shih Tzu Maltese mix, and any diseases it could be prone to.
