Mason and Darcy

I have 2 dogs. One is a Shih-Tzu and the other one is a Maltapoo. The Maltapoo's name is Mason. Mason is 6 years old. A Maltapoo is a combination of a Maltese and Poodle. The Shih-Tzu's name is Darcy. Darcy is 8 years old. Darcy is black and white with a few areas of grey. She is very quiet and also is independent. Mason is a totally the opposite of her. He barks quite a bit, even at the leaves, when a leaf falls off the tree. He likes to get belly rubs and when I give him attention, and then Darcy wants all of the attention. We have to give Darcy people food for her to eat, or she will not eat. I think that the hard food hurts her teeth because she never lost her baby teeth. Mason has to have people food mixed with his dog food, because he gets jealous of her because of what she gets fed. They still like to play a lot with each other, even though they are getting older.
