Once upon a time, my family had a little dog named Ritzi.
He was a Bichon Frise.
Our veterinarian told us that Ritzi was the most emotional dog he'd EVER seen. He did have this tendency to make his feelings known. :)
Ritzi looked so much like a toy dog that, one day, my sister and I took some of our stuffed animals and placed them all around him. He looks like he fits in, doesn't he (other than that glare on his face, maybe...lol)?
For all of his quirks and faults, I'd still recommend a Bichon to anyone as a good pet. I still miss the little guy!
