HEATHER - 2012-06-24
My female chorkie Princess Gracey is the sweetest most loving pet I have ever had. She is also the most loyal dog ever. We have a large family and she loves us all, but, she has always been a mamma's girl from day one. These dogs make wonderful pets but mine is extremely small at barely 3lbs at 16 months. We have to watch her like a hawk.

    I want a Chorkie that small! I love my and would love a teeny one, which was my original intent. How can you predict the adult weight?
  • Charlie Roche - 2012-07-19
    It pretty much depends on the size of the parents.  Some are quite a bit larger than others.  You can get the largest one in the litter or the smallest.  If both parents are tiny - chances are the off spring will be.

    My Charlie looks exactly like this but he is much bigger. He is probably 15 inches tall and weighs 21 pounds. He isn't fat, but very muscular. The breed description is dead on.

I have a west highland white terrier that is after a mouse in my house! If he catches will it hurt him? Give him a disease or anything?

    No! It won't hurt him! It is their nature to go after rodents! We lost our little dog, only 4, to back problems and then paralysis in his back legs - he was the most loyal, valiant, loving dog we have ever owned and looking for another Westie!

My dad is getting me an applehead for my birthday, so this helped me with a lot of my questions except one; can you leave them in a cage for extended amounts of time? I have to go too school so I can't take care of them all day.

    I can tell you from owning one that they like to be in warm cozy places, if you teach your chi to pee on a wee pad you can leave the cage open and he/she, will most likely spend the day waiting for you to return. The answer is not for extended periods of time, unless it's a big cage, and you include a wee pad, water and food.

We recently got a female Boston terrier puppy at 8 weeks old. A few weeks later a friend of ours told us about a 2 year old male Boston that belonged to her Mother in law who had become too ill to take take of him. She brought him over and it was love at first sight. They have just become a joy. They run around and wrestle and get into mischief sometimes , but on a whole they are such fun to watch. The way they interact with each other. They keep themselves entertained all day. She is the little diva , and he is just the sweetest little boy. It really is a wonderful breed

    We also had two female bostons and unfortunatly we lost both of them within 6 months due to illness. Our hearts are broken. I cry every day because I miss them so much. We are looking for another boston but most every one wants to much money for them.

    There is a lady around Waynsville, Mo that may help. We got Baby free because or her eyes don't look straight ahead. She is on the truck with me and she is my buddy. Personality she loves it if it moves. If I have one picture that is a favorite I would have to look at 50 or more

Brianna, How is your Giant? Can I ask how old he is and at what age the toe cancer started?

We were playing tug-a-war with our 5 month old male, his favorite game and a tooth fell out. Is this normal? He did not seem to even pay attention to it, so it must not have hurt him. Baby teeth that should come out? Thanks

    Yep, baby teeth.  Chihuahuas lose their baby teeth about 4 - 6 months old.  Adult teeth come in very quickly right behind the baby teeth so hard to notice unless you really look.   Don't worry, it is OK.
  • Jim - 2012-07-04
    The same happened to our chi. He is going on 6mos. and lost a tooth about 2 weeks ago. I am trying not to pull on his toy hard as this 'might' loosen some others. I am more gentle now(he doesn't want me to be gentle though).
Jim - 2012-07-04
I have noticed that our guy is rubbing his face on the carpet(or any other surface) after chewing on his bone. Why is this? TY

    Probably just cleaning his face and getting the saliva off and his fur going in the right direction.

    Chis are a nervous breed but start to relax and calm down and not be afraid the more used to their surrounding (and you) they get.  Remember, this is a little fella so they don't eat much.  You if are giving him a small piece of toast, a little cookie - that is what he is going to eat.  I'd try and and add a teaspoon of yogurt or a teaspoon of beef broth over the food. Have no idea why the computer switched print.
  • Charlie Roche - 2012-06-17
    Sorry my computer decided to be difficult.  You can place something you have worn with your scent on it in the little fellas crate.  They have comfort in that - and a stuffed animal he might like.  He is so young, just removed from mom and siblings and he is scared and they shake when scared.  Hold him, leave your scent on a t-shirt in his crate.  Remember he still has baby teeth so you can mash up dried dog food into smaller pieces for him with a little yogurt and warm water to soften the dried.  He is just little -  Going outside - he will get used to it but prefer being carried in a knapsack.  Hard to housebreak that way but many rave about those wee wee pads.  Place one at the door you take himn out of and when/if he goes on it take it outside.

    Chihuahuas are picky eaters, if you feed them table food, they won't eat dog food. I make mine ground chicken and add in boiled potatoes, carrots and peas... she pushes the peas on the floor but will eat one or two

I have a 5.5 yr old Chion. He is a rescue dog. I am not sure about his previous home life. He is the sweetest little guy I have ever seen. He loves to snuggle. He hardly ever barks. When he does he always looks at me like "did you hear that?" He gets along with my cat sometimes and other times he would rather rip her head off. It actually kind of funny to watch. They will be snuggled up together, then he will realize she is there and growl and snap at her. I give Bianca lots of credit for trying to be friends with him LOL! He is ok with the grandkids, but most of the time he would rather avoid kids. I feel really blessed to have found him.

    Sounds like you're having fun and enjoying your Chion. They have such unique personalities. I am happy for you.
  • Bovid - 2012-01-20
    I have a 6 month old Chion that I bought from a reputable breeder. I love her so much... She is very active, intelligent and sleeps all night! She does not bark excessively,but does not like to be left behind. She follows me everywhere I go... She weighs 7lbs...
    Wonderful company, she is! x

We adopted our beagle, Kilika, 7 weeks ago from the Humane Society. She's one of the sweetest dogs I've ever had. If I had a dog clone, it would be her: smart, lovable, nuts, and when searching for rabbits or squirrels, headstrong. She's a very welcome addition to our family.
