What made you get your pets in the first place?
My dog passed away in January 2018 and we needed to fill the huge dog shaped hole in our home
How did you choose those breeds?
Never actually wanted a shih tzu but my old school friend knew my Bob had passed away so asked me if we wanted Ed her 4 month old dog. We went and had a look and fell in love. We chose a Jack Russell as I’ve owned them since the year 2000 and can’t live without them
