The mother, an avid dog lover, exclaimed, "Look at the little Shih Tzu!"
Wide eyed with surprise, her daughter looked at her and said, "Momma, is that a bad word with zoo at the end?"
Understanding her duaghter’s response, the mother replied. "No dear, that is the type of dog that lady was walking."
No more was said, until they'd been home for a while and the five year old wanted to play with her little brother. "Come here you little Shih Tzu," she called to him.
