Chihuahua Love


I’m in love with a Chihuahua. You want to make something of it?

It was so unexpected.

He’s just so darned handsome. How’s a girl supposed to resist? All the rumors about his kind have proven to be untrue. He only barks when appropriate…when someone comes to the door, etc. Sure, he isn’t too keen on people who aren’t family. He’s not going to let a stranger pick him up or pet him, but would you? His trust must be earned, but with us… he’s a total snuggle bug.

He loves long walks. Fetch. Standing on his hind legs and spinning in a circle. Wrestling Jingle. French kissing (we’ve all learned the hard way).

Seth has not spent a night without him since September. First thing he does when he enters the house is pick up Yippee and kiss his forehead. They are so close. I’ve read the average lifespan of a male Chihuahua is 14-18 years. He might just define Seth’s entire childhood and be with him into adulthood.

May it be so.

    He is a gorgeous creature. And this from a big-dog person, so you know he’s special!

    Ok, he is kind of cute. He may breathe the rarified air of my exceptions group. He’s one of three, and one of those died a while back… still a rat on a lead so don’t go thinking I’m a small dog lover because obviously I am absolutely not. Right. OK.

  4. What a cutie! Of course I love animals … but so glad we have cats for Jack to love on. In the many forms THAT takes. Thank goodness for patient cats.
