I'm Cheryl 41 from Cape Breton Nova Scotia Canada , I received the best birthday present, a person could get this year a wonderful 8 week old shih poo puppy. I can't begin to tell you how much he has changed my life in the last four weeks since I have had him. Bear is very social and gets loads of attention everywhere we go. People just love him!! I have severe fibromyalgia so I have spent a lot of time the last couple of years close to home and I had found myself become suddenly shy and disconnected and Bear has changed all that. I smile more, I laugh a lot and he makes me enjoy all my good days so much more and even the bad days seem Bearable pardon the pun. Bear also has a pet tabby cat called susieQ although she comes first Bear rules the pecking order lol!! I am so shocked how many people have them here i have searched for info everywhere this is awesome!
