When I got Bonnie, she was in bad shape. She had apparently been given to some children who were not supervised, then thrown away when she bit one. By the time I got her she was dirty, flea infested and frightened of everybody. Now, a year and a half later, she is perky, plays constantly with her best friend, Hero (a Manx cat) and challenges all comers to a duel, then loves them to death. The Vet thought she was mixed Long Haired Chihuahua and perhaps Papillion, but I have doubts. I think she is just a LHC - beautiful, smart and so loving. I am the luckiest doggie mommie alive.

I have a 3 1/2 month old blue apple head chihuahua. Her name is Maggie and she is awesome. We are still working on potty training, does anyone have any good potty training tips?

    My daughter has a 2 1/2 pound mixed pup and she swears by the wee wee pads.  I have always had good luck with hanging the leash on the door knob.  When the pup has to go to the potty, they would play with the leash.  People say remove water and food after 8.  If they look like they are looking for  place to go - get them out quickly.  1/2 hour after eating and when they wake up.  All will work out - but sure takes patience.

    I HAAATE the wee wee pads. That teaches them to go inside. Its also a sure sign of someone who is too lazy to do the work of taking them out regularly when you're traing them. Small dogs are quick learners and they don't usually like to go anywhere near their home. That's why they usually like to go into a neighbors yard. there's my 2 cents. dave

My 14 weeks Chinese crested powder puff is already 7.27lbs; I can't find any growth chart for this breed. Is this weight is normal for his age? He supposed to be a pure breed. His mother is a powder puff as well and her weight is 12lbs while the father is hairless and he is much smaller (around 8.15lbs). Is it possible that this breed stop growing in an early age?

    Her mom was a pretty large powder puff as they normally don't go over 10 pounds.  They grow quite fast from 1 week to 3 months and then the growth slows.  I would think another couple pounds and you have the size.

I just rescued 'cutie pie' and my life has been changed. She is a long haired cutie who is now the love of my life. She is always happy to see me and is very affectionate. I have had her for 6 days and can't imagine my house without her

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!

    Hi Willow, google 'rainbow bridge. It's a poem that always makes me cry and feel better at the same time. Your Leuka will be there when you get there. Take care

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.

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).

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).
