Puppies In The Window

I just so happened to go into a Subway shop the other day to have my favorite meatball sub and as I walked up the walkway, I happened to pass a pet shop on the way. There they were, two little chihuahuas waiting to be sold. One was so much friendlier than the other, begging for me to pet her. The other one jumped right up from her nap once I came over to the kennel. These poor babies were so cute, and I wished that I could have rescued them from the shop but they were going for $800. each. I was shocked! At what time did these precious babies go up so high in price? Was this a pet shop that took good care of these puppies while they were closed to? I was so upset by seeing them want the attention that I had to walk out of there. Now, I won't say that ALL petshops are bad, but please be careful when buying a chihuahua. Make sure that they look healthy and are up to date on all shots. Ask if there is a return policy if you take them to your vet and find that they are not healthy, because you never know. I got my chihuahuas from a family relative where they had both the parents for me to see, so please take care when purchasing your new chi.

Dogs and Their Moods

Somehow, today, amongst all days, my prissy dog just seemed to think that it was her day. No longer was I able to sit down alone and watch tv, not able to sit at this computer and write alone, no, not without my prissy. Today seemed to be all about her. She was needy today and showed me that she needed to be beside me. Now, it's funny, because some days she will sleep in her cage with the door open, all balled up in her blankies. Why not today? That is totally unknown to me because she just wanted to be near me. My dog has such a crazy personality, maybe she's just having one of those days like us women do !

Keeping Up With Rabies Shots

Well, this past Saturday I took my Prissy dog to get her rabies shot. I wrapped her up in her favorite blankie which helped so much and proceeded to get her that rabies shot. I thought that things would go horribly because she just isn't one who likes to hold still. I picked her up and held her close to me, and much to my suprize, the shot was done and over with so quickly that she didn't even bat an eyelash. Wow, that was so done and over with fast !! Not knowing if she would blossum up like my Shorty dog does after a shot, I made sure to have some benedryl on hand in case she needed it but she didn't. The shot actually made her really hyper and she ran around for a longer period of time than normal, but she finally settled down and went to bed for the night. Having your dog's rabies shots are important, and they don't have to cost a fortune. I got ours through our local feed store, which worked out perfect....however, if your dog has other issues, visiting your local vet is always best.
