My daughter purchased a yorkie about a year ago. He is such a joy and a very precious little dog. He knows that he is a very important part of our family and is treated as such. Cotton is his name and he is, or think he is, a big dog. Talking about protective, he is so protective. We thought we couldn't love a tiny dog but when he came home it was love at first sight. I call him my little grandpuppy (grandson) :). A very good dog and a very special part of our lives.

    They are awesome dogs, I bet you are having a wonder ful time. My sister-in-law had one, and he had so much character! He did think he was a big dog though, and had no fear of any other dog he encountered on walks. So she had to keep a close eye on him:) Still he was such a joy!

Lilly is still a very active and smart chichi. I think that she thinks that we are her pets. LOL She loves people, but hates dogs. Her first pet cat has since passed away and her Lovebird, but she now plays with her Siamese Angora cat named Summer Sugar. Lilly barks at her when I scold the cat, and is like her older sister. She loves to try and catch Anoles and barks at squirrels and birds. Loves her toys, small and big. Even plays hide and go seek. Great little dog, big heart.

The dog in this pic looks EXACTLY like mine must have as a pup, floppy ears and all. Does anyone know if that is a full PowderPuff or not? I rescued my pup at 2.5 yrs old so we don't know if he's pure. Any input is appreciated!

there is a comment on here about the Chins' diet containing corn. I was told when I purchased my Japanese chin that the breed is allergic to corn. After my dog accidently ate some cat food containing corn I found this to be true. DO NOT feed your Japanese chin anything containing corn if you value their health!

I have a longed haired chihuahua. His name's Fluffy. He's a fireball. He's so full of energy all day long. It's really difficult to train him. My mom has another dog. A toy puddle. Her name's Audi and she is very old. She is 16 years old. Fluffy's not 1 yet. But he still tries to play with her like she is a puppy. Fluffy does not like any of our neighbors and hates cars. He tries to chase them on our daily walks. I don't know how to calm him down.

    Our dog goes berserk over the mail lady. When we have the windows open and she hears him she says 'HI KILLER!!'

Another comment.......our dog(after been given a treat 'sometimes') will go and want to hide.bury it. It's only frustrating when he scratches on the carpet. You kinda feel for these animals because I guess it's instinct. This is the first time I have had a dog that does this. As a boy we grew up with Boxers and the 2 we had did not do this. Is there anything I can do indoors? Outside he does not dig, just munches on bunny turds, eats bark off of little limbs, loves dead leaves. OH and got him a KONG and he will not eat from his bowl ONLY from his KONG.

    How old and how long have you had the dog?
  • Jim - 2012-12-20
    He's 11mos. old, will be 1yr.old the beginning of Jan.
  • Jim - 2012-12-20
    We got him when he was 4 weeks old.
  • Jeremy Roche - 2012-12-20
    They are small and often nervous dogs.  He may have come from a place where he  was not comfortable and may have felt he had to hide his stuff to keep it.  With patience and love he will become comfortable and more then likely calm down.  Try putting something special in his bowl.

    We've had him since he was 4wks old.

    My female chi started hiding things when she was 6 months old. I have had her since she was 8 weeks old. This must be a natural dog instinct because I have 3 cousins who also own chi's and their dogs also hide their toys, bones etc. My chi also scratches at her bedding like she is trying to dig. I have had her outside and she began digging a hole like a hound dog, but she is a full blooded registered chi. Must be normal behavior for her. I certainly won't be leaving her alone in the yard to dig holes.

    Last year I rescued a long haired chi mix who is about 5. She does the exact same things...no digging outside except when she finds delicious cat turds (she is a most effective scavenger hunter), loves clumps of dead leaves, digs a bit in the house before she lays down in her bed, and when I give her a big treat meant to occupy her with chewing she will pace around the house whining until she finds a satisfactory place to hide it, usually in the linen closet. My solution was to stop giving her such large chew treats. Now she only gets bite sized things which she eats right away. I felt too sorry for her when she seemed in distress looking for a hiding place.

    Well, I had a doggy, long hair chihuahua, that used to get everything under ground and was afraid of everybody. I took him over to the Psychologist and he advised me to take him over to the graveyard for few nights and to leave him there all night long by himself. Well, I did so but when he came back home we found out that something was killing the cats in the community. It was weird because the cats showed up dead with two holes on their necks and by the time we realized what was happening I fould out that I have been bit by the leg while I was sleeping. I had two holes on my right leg. Then one day I went back to my room and I found my long hair chihuahua sucking blood from a rabbit that I had in the room. The rabbit was already dead. Well, I decided to end the problem and what I did was to remove the two fangs and I tough him how to drink tomatoe juice. Now I have no problems with Draky.

This is my Maltipoo . Her name is Sasha, she is now 1 year old this picture was taken when she was 3 months old. I really love designer puppies. They are always the best of the two breeds, in my case Maltese and French Poodle.

    The picture above actually is a Shih Tzu, which is a very old dog breed, and not one of the recent designer dogs. The photo was taken in 2006 at the 'Family Pet Show' in Pomona, California. But I bet I your designer dog is really cute, being a cross between two such adorable dogs as the Maltese and French Poodle!

I also have a long haired Chihuahua. she is blonde and white and they are smart dogs. She is very obedience and understand a lot of things you tell her. The thing I want to know is there something to make her hair grow because she got a few fleas and from scratching she has some bold spots and also sleeps with me. They are very protective.
