Welcome to our Pet of the Month feature, where we showcase pets of all shapes and sizes from our doctors, staff and friends.
Say hello to Whiskey. This adorable, 2 year old shih tzu is part of Atiya’s family.
Whiskey was given to Atiya as a gift after she lost her first shih tzu, Jax, at only 8 months old. Since then, Whiskey has become a constant companion, always looking for attention and love. “Every morning, especially on days that I get to sleep in,” says Atiya, “Whiskey will stare directly at me and start digging in the pillow to wake me up. He never learned how to give kisses properly so he will nibble on my chin.”
Whiskey is a very active shih tzu. He plays fetch, he catches frisbees, he even swims! And he loves to run. He has even been Atiya’s jogging partner since he was only 8 weeks old.
And now, he is September’s official Park Avenue Pet of the Month. Keep up the good work, Whiskey! And let Atiya sleep in once in a while.
