Sophie, The Flying Shih-tzu



video
Sophie is not the type of dog to take it lightly if she knows you are talking about her as shown in this video. If Sophie hears anything that sounds remotely similar to "squirrel" - she gets activated and runs outside through the doggy door in flying fashion. Sometimes she stays at the porch, but she's learned the opportunities can be missed if she doesn't take the call to action seriously enough and she runs a lap around areas in the front yard she has seen squirrels frequent. On the day this video was shot there was not really a squirrel; Sophie was teased because she is so full of action and zest for life. After realizing there are no squirrels she runs back to find herself being watch through the window. Upon entering back inside the house through the doggy-door, Sophie comes right up to the viewer as if to toughly reveal that you have nowhere to run and nowhere to hide.
