Chihuahuas and Sickness

I have been so sick this whole week, sleeping away most of the entire week....along side of me have been my two little chihuahuas holding steady to me as if they knew what was wrong. I don't know if they just have a sense about them that they know when you don't feel well but they are extremely smart dogs. Does your chihuahua do something special or different when you don't feel well? Do they cuddle up to you? Heck, my chis have been so close to me that I haven't had much room to myself. One thing about chihuahuas....they are so loyal!

Getting Prissy Spayed

I have had my prissy dog for several years now, and in all this time, I have not thought about getting her spayed, except for the times that she comes into heat and our male dog, Shorty, is bothering her. She does not like Shorty and sometimes she can be very cruel towards him. Of course, what female wants to be bothered when they are having their time, right? Anyways, Prissy is showing me a side of her that I don't even like very well, and that's the fact that she has been tinkling on my sofa, the floor, the arms of the sofa, soft blankets and whatever else she wants to "mark" and I believe it's because she is in heat, or maybe coming into heat. I have not bred her, I think that she's way too tiny, and Shorty is not from the same litter, but they do have the same parents so that was never an option. I have made the decision to get her spayed and I have been reading that it's a good thing, that it helps them live longer lives and I am hoping and praying that it will stop her behavior of having to mark things in my home.......otherwise I will have to buy some diapers for her, and I really don't want to have to deal with that expense.

Nib-Nose Prissy Dog

Miss Prissy is my little one who rules the roost over here. She is always checking the outside to make sure that everything's okay and that we are safe and happy, as well as her being a total nib-nose and looking to see what the neighbors next door are doing. She has a great view to our neighbors and what's going on outside. She doesn't like the cats who roam into our yard and she thinks that her barking scares them off. My dog is a very protective thing and she's a pure joy to have in our family. Miss Priss is a very tiny dog, weighing in just around 3 pounds.
