Even before German and I got married, we tend to keep our lives private but there are some aspects that we don’t mind sharing with our friends and family as husbands in Brooklyn. We think it would be fun to share this video journey with you, especially since we have Leona, the best Shih Tzu puppy ever! These adventures will probably all revolve around her and her friends. Several of her Shih Tzu puppy friends are rescues so it’s great to see how behavioral problems aren’t an issue for these pet owners that shower their pets with love.
I wanted to do this because I wanted to showcase how normal we are as a married gay couple. Yes, we are husbands, but we have the same life anyone else does. We worry about the bills, who’s going to take out the garbage and scream and yell when the toothpaste cap isn’t put back on. So I dare anyone to see this series and claim our “gay lifestyle” is different. It’s just our life. We just happen to be gay husbands in Brooklyn with a Shih Tzu named Leona the Lion.
Below is the 3rd installment of our video series, Leona goes to an all Shih Tzu birthday party to celebrate her friends Honey and Quinn’s birthday. It was action packed with all these New York City puppies running around but so much fun. As always at these events, there is a dog birthday cake that sits on the dog side of the snack table and for humans, there are a few nibbles for us too.
