    I have five Shih Tzu’s. Sophie & CoCo the parents, about three years old. And their three pups, about 7 months old now. We didn’t intend to breed them, it was their idea, and they managed to remove some pretty tricky barriers that we set up, lol. It’s okay, we love them, have the room for them, both in the home and hearts and are devoting the rest of our lives to caring and loving them. I know the basics when it comes to grooming. Trust me, However i never learned the top knot and all of the dogs have hair long enough that i feel something has to be done with their fringe and top of head. As far as chin and mustache, i made it a habbit since they started eating from a dish and especially drinking, to come to me and one by one they get in line to have their beard/mustache dried by a cut up material of my spouses pajamas. The flannel pulls the moisture away, then a quick flick of a comb through it. This is vital to me, as if they are allowed to remain wet, they can actually have yeast grow there, and it doesn’t smell pretty. Just make it a quick habit and make a big deal out of them coming to you. It is worth it. Good luck. Now i need to learn top knots.. lol
