Comments about the Chihuahua

I didn't choose the name...he was given to me at age 1 and it's what had already been given to him. However, he has a 'Herculean' personality, thinks he is a really big dog. I have 2 other dogs, much bigger than he is and he totally rules the group. He is 4 pounds of ferocity.

I'm deaf person and I'm a chihuahua lover. I had 3 chihuahuas the first name was Conchita and 2 was Carmelita number 1 and Chiquita are sisters. Last one was Carmelita number 2 last for 15 years and passed away last month,Oct.17th due of kidney dease and her blood was not working,had to put to sleep,because I don't want her to suffer. I miss her very much whole my heart and buried in our backyard at my house, but I'm going to get another chihuahua puppy,I had to wait,because I'm going to have both of knee replacement for surgery,learn to walk all over again.Then after I get better and I will have 2 chihuahua puppies,so,they can play each other. I keep looking in the newspaper ad for Chihuahua puppies every day. I looked in the internet ad on Chihuahua and I love to look at their faces so cute and very sweet. I also collected Chihuahua stuff dog and statues,too. Now, I want a T-shirt of Chihuahua,but its hard to find one. Enjoy my story and Thank You!
