I find Kisses quite lovable and gentle. He is also very sweet as a canine companion, especially when simply sitting in front of the TV. He'd climb onto the sofa and snuggle next to me, all the while expecting a nice long head scratch. He really loves drawing attention to himself and when we arrive, he'd follow us everywhere (occasionally jumping up onto us). He is quite loud, however, irregardless of who it is that's arrived.
With regards to food, he is very picky with what he wants to eat. At times, he just chews on a small amount of the food in his bowl and would immediately go for the water. But if food is directly given to him, he would eat it.
Shih Tzus, in my opinion, are a nice breed to look at and play with, but they seem very high maintenance, especially considering the amount of hair they have (there are problems where strands of his hair are all over the furniture and the floor. Needs a lot of cleaning up after). I'm not really into this breed, but they're okay.
