I love Pomeranians to bits, but I am greiving as I have had to make the hardest choice I or any of you will ever have to make and that is to put your best mate to sleep when their time comes. Our girl was 20 yrs old.And we still miss her and will for a while yet. Leuka passed away Dec 21 2011.
Now she is at peace.

    How wonderful you had 20 years with your girl! That is a wonderful long life and you and she were blessed to have eachother all those years. She is in a beautiful place in heaven. We have a girl Pom that is eight and I hope we are blessed like you were to have her for 20 years. Her name is Piper. We had collie whose name was Willow. I hope you find a new Pom to share with what you had with your Willow and give another Pom a long happy life with you too!

I have a yorkie mix named Peoples that is the best thing in my life! He is getting heavy and his diet is chicken and rice and veg. I know that that is not a good diet to have but I spoil him. What can I do to reduce weight?

    There are adult dog foods which contain lower calories - As they mature their matabolism slows and a yorkie just isn't very big. Treats???? Are you giving him what you consider a small amount of treats - just a little piece of toast or maybe a chip? Might want to think about a different treat too.

We have a mini dachshund and he has a gagging and mucus problem. He is always coughing and acting like he is going to throw up. Is there anyway to treat this problem?

    My doxie had this issue his whole life. He lived a full 12 or so years but he died with lung disease I think. He panted a lot and breathed really rapidly during the last few months it got better then worse I think he had fluid in his lungs. Check hs lungs keep an eye on his heart rate and breathing. Mine lived a full life but I always wonder if it could have been longer... if I had known I wouldn't have waited as long as I did to get him cheked out. I would get a loan or something for even just 1 more month with my lil dookie

Hi, Im 14 years old and planning to buy a Bull Terrier. I study from 7:45 and get home 3:15. I have a huge yard and other dogs which don't fight to other dogs. Should I buy a male, female? Should I buy a Bull Terrier or it is a bad idea, considering I study a lot of time and I would walk him about 1 or 2 hours?  Please respond me ASAP, thanks

    No one can tell you what you should or shouldn't do. My daughter has 3 Bull Terriers and she is 28 and she - regardless of the training - has no control over them at all. They are all 3 - 5 years old now and extremely difficult to do anything with. Me personally, would be concerned about the other pups - when all is going well - maybe leave it alone. How firm a trainor will you be as they require firm training - not hitting or beating just a firm voice that is consistent and is a good solid dog trainer. How much time do you have to socialize this pup to other people, places etc. How many activites for school are you going to want to be a part of and not be home for the pup? You are going in to middle school and then highschool and do you want to be walking and training or do you want to play basketball, go to friends homes, go to the dances, date - so how much time will you have left for a pup that is extrmemly pack orientated, requires firm and consistent discipline and training.

    I have an 8 year old bull terrier that I have had since I was 12 years old. Females tend to be less aggressive towards other dogs. Males are very territorial, and may try to fight another male. My bull terrier is the best companion that I could ask for, and she is currently living with me in an apartment as a college dog and she has never been happier. I do go to school, and work but when I get home she is always waiting for me to lay on the couch with her. On my days off, I do take her for car rides and to go walking. I highly recommend the breed to younger people bc bull terriers love human attention. Just remember they are terriers so they are very stubborn, and hard to train but they will learn tricks with a lot of patience.

My little Chihuahua is named Chico, he's so sweet and unlike most of his breed he loves everyone! He prefers mommy still, but he adores dogs, cats, and humans of all shapes and sizes. I don't know if this is normal in his breed, the only time he barks is when someone approaches the door and he's not sure of the situation. He's learned tricks fast, and barely barks, he's almost Litter Box trained as well, since I live in Maine and its way too cold now a days to take him out. I am trying to afford a doggie coat for him. Do you think it will work? Anyways he's adorable! I didn't actually think I wanted a Chihuahua, my grandmother had one who died, and I loved him. But he was so small I was scared, then I saw Chico and I fell in love instantly, I just had to have him. I got lucky he was only 250 dollars! He's the BEST dog I've had, next to my child hood dog of Ginger who was a collie. Michelle

    My wife brought home our dog when he was about 6 weeks old. I wear a size 12 gym shoe(because of my wide feet, not length) and he could fit inside. Forgot to take pics but... My first words when my wife came home and said 'Look what we got' was 'AWW SHIT!' (love him to pieces though).
Jim - 2012-10-20
Well, all I can say is this dog is like a little baby. DAG, he finds twist ties, strings, and other things. When I say 'What do you have now?' He runs behind the chair and the little bouger knows what he has in his mouth... he 'shouldn't have.' NO! I do NOT yell at him. Hell, he's only a puppy/baby.

    I had a similair situation with my puppy Chico, and now he knows how to drop it. Patience will pay off, but do not yell just use a very stern voice. A simple 'Chico drop it' works. Michelle
  • Anonymous - 2012-11-14
    We NEVER yell at him. We just say firmly 'DON'T' or 'NO' but he thinks we are playing and 'runs' behind the couch when he gets anything he 'knows' he shouldn't have(I say this because he/they know) gotten. Another thing we have to be careful about is leaving Kleenex/paper towels laying around. He tears them up in strips and when we go to get them from him he runs behind the chair. It takes both of us to catch him and them I will 'try' to open his closed mouth and get the stuff out. A couple of times he actually swollowed a piece of a Kleenex so we couldn't get it from him(that little booger).

My little guy 3mo. long haired Chi is positively adorable. Trouble is I think he knows it and pretty much does what he wants when it comes to using my entire house as his toilet. I take him all many many times. He watches the older ones do their business and just scratches and whimpers constantly at the door till I let him in. It seems that he thinks its wrong to go outside to do his business or else he just likes the soft carpet on his butt whichever the case can someone please help me. The older two look at me as if to say what are you gonna do about this mom? I have read and tried just about everything. I watch him like a hawk and when he starts to circle or make some movement like he's ready to go I run him outside. I can sit there with him for a good half hour with no luck. As soon as I bring him in and turn my back he leaves a little gift for me. Please help

    Many swaear by those wee wee pads.  The dog goes on the wee wee pad inside the house and then you take the wee wee pad outside and it will go on the wee wee pad outside. 
  • Michelle - 2012-11-13
    I have a cat litter box, he doesn't eat the stuff in it. We are still working it out but Chico's getting the idea. I tried the puppy pads he wouldn't even go on them. Michelle
  • Jim - 2012-11-14
    Our spoiled guy will walk around and around before he goes #2(he doesn't do that when he pees). After he's done he will smell it. He does not lick it or eat it like I have read some dogs do. He will come in and just look at us like 'Hey, I did 'something' aren't you going to give me something?' Well we usually give him a treat when he does this.

I have 2 beautiful girls. They are the light of my life. I may want to breed my older Chug but around here they are all related. Is there male out there close? Oklahoma.

    Hello Carolyn, I have a male Chug and everyone stops me too. I would love to breed him, but unfortunately I am in Everett, WA. Did you get information breeding 2nd generation Chugs? I am trying to find information on line but can't seam to find any. Let me know!
  • Julia - 2012-05-29
    I am in Dallas and I have a male chug!!
  • Mary Schannen - 2012-07-02
    We just brought home a male chi mix, (from the Animal Shelter) and after doing research - I'm convinced he is pug/chi mix. I too am from Dallas (just NE - Allen). We brought home this sweet little playful, loving boy from the shelter and now I'm discovering that it's considered a designer breed! I'll post pics if I can figure it out (just got here) and hopefully you can give me your opinions. He was a stray - but obviously has lived in a house before and used to being picked up. We think he's 4, - taking him to the vet today.

    My chihuahua just had chug puppies 8 weeks ago, two beautiful boys and two girls. Birthing them wasn't easy for her (my moms pug got ahold of her). Mama was a rescue who was badly neglected and ran away when her pups where only 5 weeks old. We hope she comes home. Originally I thought these chubby pups sucked her dry bc she didn't want to feed them in the end. In the meantime I have done my best to play mama duck since I'm home pregnant. They make bedrest bearable and are super easy! They are super smart, independent yet loyal, they snuggle so good and are adventurous in the most adorable way! Every where I go these puppies attract so much attention (my sons says they're chick magnets-lol). These are the smartest puppies I (or anyone) have ever seen by far! They burrow and 'protect' just like a chihuahua without the anxiety or yippyness! They picked up on potty training within 2 days and now they even sit (and I'm no expert dog trainer at all!). They have only had one accident between all of them, I'm amazed by how smart they are! Luckily I found a great home where both boys went together (couldn't keep them all witb a baby coming!) and I've decided to keep the girls;'Thelma' and 'Louise' even though I have so many ppl begging for one! They follow me like ducklings and are so attached to each other, they are great with my teacup chihuahua, kids and cats. Funny thing is I never planned on keeping any but thier personality won me over for life! I'm hooked! I might be interested in breeding them each once in the future, I live in auburn Washington, near Cynthia in Seattle ( if u dont mind waiting for them).I am also curious what a second generation might be like. Plus I have sooo many ppl wanting my girls and since I can't let go of them maybe I can hook them up with a great lifelong companion in the future! Best breed ever!

    Yes, take him to a vet to make sure everything is ok.  Puppies that age need all the nutrients that they can get and the worms will deplete that.  Better safe then sorry.
