Maggie the Zuchon puppy at about 6 weeks old—"Maggie Loucielle Rhoades is a Bichon Frise and a Shih Tzu mixed. She is the nicest, cutest dog anyone could ask for. Potty training is going very well. They do not bark, sweat or shed hair. They have no allergies or health problems. They do whine when in crate. If you don't spoil them I think they would get used to the crate and not whine. We spoil Maggie so she has not gotten used to the crate; only our bed. One other problem is they smell really bad around the eyes if you don't clean under the eyes every other day. The vet said to put Vaseline under each eye so when their eyes drain it will spread out and not collect in one area. For me a little Johnson & Johnson shampoo under the eyes once every other day takes the smell away. Well, Maggie is licking my leg, telling me it’s time for bed."

Cooky the Zuchon (Shih Tzu / Bichon cross) at 10 months old—"She was bred from a Bichon dad and Shih Tzu mother. This wonderful little pup is very intelligent and communicative. She loves to play and has a toy box full of toys that she routinely picks from and invites us to play with her! She has completed puppy kindergarten and is ongoing with her puppy education! She brightens our days with cuddles and licks and cute puppy tricks! One exploit was that one evening when she rebelled against her puppy food; she was told to eat it or nothing. From the den a rustle, rustle, rustle could be heard. On investigation, it seems she managed to open the pantry door, get out her bag of doggie treats from the bottom shelf, and took them to the couch to settle down for an evening of junk food! She watches everything we do—everyyyy-thing—heavy sigh!"
