The Shih Tzu was developed centuries ago in the palace of the Chinese emperor. For hundreds of years, Shih Tzu lived the life of royal “lap warmers,” pampered by emperors and their families. The breed was nearly unknown in Europe and America until the 20th century. Since then, the Shih Tzu has been one of the most popular toy dogs here and in the United Kingdom. And they still treat their owners, no matter who they might be, like royalty.
"We actually have some really good athletes here at the SPCA. Our Olympians, whether you're looking for a pet that has the biggest smile, or the fastest wag, or even the best lap warmer, we have something for everyone," said Tina Regester, with the Maryland SPCA.
I wonder if you wife will ever get tired of all the Hello Kitty products. This lap warmer certainly is one of the most limited use items that can be found at home. Taking up one precious USB port just for a lap warmer where a blanket would do the same job is just unwise
