This is miss Prissy and she is my pride and joy. This little lady is about 3 pounds in weight. She is very petite but oh boy !!!! Can she handle her own. She is not one to back down and she is fiercely loyal. Prissy is here, on the inside of the door, waiting for me to come in. She has gotten to be somewhat of a spoiled brat here of late, as she thinks that she has to be with me 24/7. Oh dogs are wonderful companions. She is a beauty for sure.

Chihuahuas sure do love being picked up and held alot. Actually, they even may prefer it to walking. I don't know, maybe it's due to them being so small and unable to get around as quick as us, but they can if they prance fast enough, or perhaps they just like being cuddled up in your arms. Either way, they certainly do love the attention. Chihuahuas are "people" dogs. Chis love being the center of attention. Having the love of a chihuahua is so great because they love you back. Chis are protective of their "people" and they love being near them. My chis love me so much that I have to share one chair with the both of them on either side of me, leaving me no room what-so-ever of any free space. Chihuahuas are such a great breed, however, they do prefer adults over children.

I am here to tell you, that once those fleas start, they are horrible to control. I am so tired of using the traditional methods of flea control....seems to me, that they do not work very well. Actually, they might if I lived in a cooler climate, but since I am in Texas, and it is very humid here, it's hard to deal with the fleas. The traditional flea drop to the neck just does not last but about 2 weeks on my dogs, and it gets to be quite expensive. I also have been bathing them to aleviate the problem but it just seems to cling to my poor doggies. I took all the blankets off the couches today, vaccumed the sofas, washed all those blankets, the dog beds, and their blankets and vaccumed the carpets really good, in hopes that this will help some. I am seeking some natural methods of flea control but I have read many, many reviews speaking badly toward the flea control from natural drops on the neck. I am still looking so if anyone out there has any ideas, I would surely love to hear them.

Shorty is a very gentle chihuahua, unless there's a visitor at the door.....then he turns into the biggest doggie in the whole wide world. We snapped this photo of him laying in his favorite place......which is our bed, of course. Shorty has his own kennel that he sleeps in at night, however, once we turn the family room's TV off at night, he feels that he is entitled to go to our room and sleep on his favorite pillow for at least an hour or so before he has to go to his own bed. Shorty has on a blue belly band, just in case you are wondering what that is, but we normally take it off at night, but on this night, he got settled into his favorite spot before we had a chance to get it off. He will whine like a baby all night long, if he doesn't get to lay on our bed for a short while every single night. Does your dog do anything so crazy as this? If so, I would love to hear about it in the comments area.
