What Are You Getting For Your Doggies For Christmas?

I have told my chis that if they aren't good doggies, then Santa Clause will not bring them any toys. Well, they have been so good and now I am having to get out and buy them something, but what? I don't like feeding my dogs any chewie toys because I am afraid they might break off a piece too big and get sick, so that's out of the question. How about a new toy? Well, it's going to have to be something small enough for their mouths because they are so tiny. Toys don't always last too long with my male chi though, so maybe a new blankie to sleep with? Yes, I think that's what I am going to get them. They could use some new nighty blankets. What are you buying for yours?

My Faithful Chihuahuas

Dogs are so faithful....especially my chihuahuas. My mother passed away unexpectidly and I had to be gone for 9 days. Although I did leave them at home in capable hands, they did not have me to feed them and baby them like I always do. There was no way that I could take them with me so I left to take care of things out of state and the moment I stepped back into the house, there they were waiting anxiously for me. Although I have been through some really hard times lately, my dogs have always been there for me.

Flea Medication

Here we are in November, and the fleas are still around!!! I put some frontline plus on my dogs as usual but this time just after having it only one week, the fleas were back! I was livid, of course, as this flea medication isn't cheap, especially if you are a more-than-one-dog owner. I called up the lady at the vet shop inside of the petsmart and asked her if there were anything new. She said Vectra. I went and purchased this for my babies and have now applied it. I am going to keep you updated as to see if it's working or not. Actually, she said there was a money-back guarantee....that's even better. This is NOT for cats though.

Chis Love Sunbathing

Summer comes and summer goes, and another year is going to come to a close pretty fast. I feel like life is passing by really quickly. My chihuahuas remain the same, adorable, loving sweethearts that they always have been. I have noticed how they love laying in a spot of sunlight that comes in when I have the door open. If you have chis that love to do that as well, keep a close eye on them because they can get dehydrated easily and start panting furiously. I have to watch their time in the sun and close my door if they stay there too long. Make sure that your chis always have available water to them.
