Dog food, Dog food

I tell you, chihuahuas are famous for being picky eaters. They, or at least mine, seem to love the smaller kibbles and love taking one kibble at a time out of their bowl and bringing it to my living room and munching down on it right on my carpet. Why do they do that for? Do they think the kitchen and bowls they have aren't good enough? My dogs are so funny, but oh, so cute !
I have all three of them, who love boiled chicken, but I try not to give them too much of it because it makes them have the runs and soft stools. My vet said they could have it, but it doesn't seem to bring them any good, except the happiness they have when they devour it. Make sure your dog food ingredients have meat listed as one of the first ingredients on the bag. They love meat !

Chihuahuas and jeaoulousy

Chihuahuas can be really demanding, especially if they think they are being challenged. My Prissy dog thinks that she owns me, and if ANYONE else in the family comes near me, give me attention or takes more of my time than SHE thinks they should, she is right there, up in my face, licking what she can, to get more of my time. She is a jealous little thing for sure. Chihuahuas love being the center of attention and will try every little thing that they can to get your attention. Of course, my chis deserve all the love in the world because they are absolutely wonderful. My chi loves jumping up and down, grasping at the edge of my shirt when I get online because she thinks that she needs to be sitting on my lap. She fiercely wants my undying attention. Funny, how these very small dogs can be so jealous.

Featuring........Shorty Dog in all His Glory

Shorty dog is comfortably lounging on his favorite pillow on my bed as I work on the computer tonite. He was a little resentful that the flash came on as he is trying his best to get a good siesta before I put him into his kennel tonight. How does your chihuahua enjoy his favorite sleeping moments? Does he/she lay in funny positions like my shorty dog?

What is the New Year Bringing For Your Chi??

Well, the new year rolled in with a bang, all the house was quiet and still, until someone nearby popped off some fireworks and Shorty went into his crying bit. He whined and whined and of course, he had to be soothed so he wouldn't wake up the whole house. What does the new year bring for your chi? For mine, I think that they are going to get a new outdoor pen to be able to go outside in for brief periods of time when it isn't cold. I know they will really enjoy that alot. I take them out on the porch sometimes and they really seem to love it. Chi's love the outdoors, but they surely don't like the cold weather, so if you go out on an outing, make sure they have on their coats or sweaters !
