Red Shih Tzu

I was taking something out to my mailbox to be mailed when I became aware of a reddish animal directly behind me. My reaction was to ask “What in the fuck is this?” At first I thought I was being attacked by a squirrel. But then I realized it was a red Shih Tzu.

So, I asked the Shih Tzu, “How you doing?” and petted it before it scrambled off. It had a collar and tags, and the owner was soon going after it.

Never seen a red Shih Tzu before. It kind of symbolized something to me and maybe there is meaning to this siting. Maybe.
