Where Do You Find a Chihuahua?

Chihuahuas are great dogs. First of all, before you get one, you really need to read up on the breed. They are a very unique breed and are more bonded with adults than children. There are many sites on the internet as well that can help you decide if a chihuahua is the right breed for you. But let's say that you have already made up your mind that you do want one. Where do you start looking? Pet shops are normally not a good place in which to start. Where else can you find one? Alot of people place them in the newspaper ads but you must be very careful here as well. Some people ask around their friends or others who have a chihuahua to see where they recommend, also which can be very helpful. Remember to make a checklist of things to ask the owner, or breeder about the dog. Make sure they are alert, their eyes are clean and clear, observe how they interact with the other dogs and people around them. Lastly, there are many places where you can go to adopt a chihuahua. is a place where you can start looking as well. Many of the rescue or adoption sites have already had a vet check on these dogs and shots given. Good luck in finding your new precious pet, as they will be in your lives a good long time. Most chis live around 15-18 years.

Paw Appreciation

I know, it sounds funny--"paw appreciation". My dogs do show me their appreciation and I really like it alot. Now, many chihuahuas are stubborn at times, and boy can they get on your last nerve when they don't want to behave, but for the most part, they are really good dogs. My dogs have the run of the biggest part of the house, doing as they please, which is mostly sleeping. There are times when they play and run and chase each other, barking wildly at strangers and sometimes not quite peeing on the paper or pee-pad like they should but really, they are quiet most of the time. I feed them, buy them toys and try and make my fur babies happy, like most owners do their pets. But did you know that they give you their appreciation in return for all of this? Mine show me their "paw appreciation" by greeting me at the door, every single time with joy and jubilation. They are so happy to see me, no matter what time of the day it is. They come and sit by me and keep me company, even in the times that I am sad or blue. Dogs can sometimes be like little people. They bark, but they can't talk back. They can also disobey at times, but they look at you with those big sad eyes and it just makes you want to laugh. What a wonderful companion a chihuahua can be.

Fall, Christmas and Napsack Beds

Now that Labor Day is over with, fall will be approaching quickly. This is my favorite time of the year. The weather starts cooling down some and the dogs get a little frisky. I think they like the cooler weather too. Soon, everybody will be gearing up for the end of the year holidays, yes, I do mean Christmas. Have you even thought about it yet? I have, but with summer weather, it's hard to think about buying gifts. However, with that in mind, I will probably be getting a few things here this month and continue on until it's all bought.
Have you thought about what you are going to get for your chi? I offer some really unique napsack beds for your little chi. My chis love being covered up. They want to be "hidden" under the covers.....even in the summer with the air conditioning on. What better way to show them some love, by getting them a new bed? These snuggle beds are washable, reversible, and are nice and toasty warm for your fur baby to snuggle inside of. You can find them here
Perhaps in the next couple of days, I will be uploading some pictures of some new ones I am making now for the fall and holiday season.
