    I had my long hair chihuahua 3 days,
    she just had her first litter of puppys,
    her owner had to move and could not keep her, sold the puppys,
    she is having a change in her life at this time, I want it to be easy as possible for her.
    I have 2 more puppys 1 full blooded poodle and a mix breed poodle, they are all small dogs.
    Any advice on how to help her and feed her, make her as comfortable as we can?

I have a one year old black and tan chihuahua named Coco Puff. I brought her home when she was 8 weeks old and introduced her to my Beagle, Chow/Shepherd and German Shepherd right away. They were taught from the beginning that they must be gentle with her and she loves them all. At bedtime and when no humans are home, she is confined to the upstairs and the others are kept downstairs just so there is no unsupervised excitement where she might get squished by accident. She is quiet and gentle and loving and playful. I plan to go through certification to have her be a visiting therapy dog for the elderly or ill.

I have a long haired chihuahua and he is amazing. He's a little over a year old. He's quiet and well behaved, although he's found his voice when he may feel he's protecting his owner, or maybe he just wants to be heard. When I first got him he hid and ran from people a lot, now I have him out walking almost everyday and he loves going "Bye Bye". He's come a along way since first getting him, learning fairly quickly. They make wonderful pets and I'd love to get another one.

I have a 1 yr old boy, long haired and is the captain of my other 4 dogs. @ labradors, ridgeback x and a kelpie/staffie x. He is the smallest and youngest. First time I'v had a small dog. He's the star of the show. He loves them all and enjoys his walk. Recommend to anyone who has the time as they love attention.

I have a long hair. BUT he licks his front legs for about 10 minuted at a time during the day. Is this normal? Buddy is very important to me.

    I have a little dog, not a chihuahua but, he had allergies to chicken and licking can be one thing they do if they have an allergy. I hope this helps in some little way.

    I have a long hair. He is solid white with dark brown eyes. He is so frisky. When I bought him I knew the was the one for us. He was very hyper and loved attention. I named him spunky, he is 2 years old now. I raised him from a small puppy. He is very protective of me. He loves to be outdoors and run around with my cat. Him and my cat are best pals. They never fight.

I've had a long haired chihuahua for five years, and she's an absolutely great companion. We've traveled everywhere together and she's always been happy and healthy. But she can't stand other dogs either, no matter how friendly they are. The best thing I've found for that is to have a high place that she can get away to and they can't reach her. Usually she just runs up to the back of the couch if she needs a break from the sniffing and grooming. Though your dog will probably get used to dogs a bit easier since they'll be raised together, it probably would help if he could be a little higher up once in a while.

My darlin Brusier has been the love of my life 4 years now and I would recommend one to any lonely person. He is loyal and makes me smile everyday. I truely believe he would die if something happened to me. I know this because when I started dialysis I had to leave him with a friend every other day, and when I got back he did flips. As my time approched for a transplant he seem to notice me getting ready a week before leaving town and got in my suitcase. I suggest to anyone to get this type a dog, You will NEVER be sorry!

To Christie Mole,
Although it's tragic to read, your story is beautiful and moved me to tears. I too have a chi baby, and although you sound as though you have a lovely heart and all the best intentions, Im afraid you can never replace your friends chi baby. I know it's bad to see someone you care about grieve so much, but it is all you can do for your friend at the moment. I wouldn't know what I would do if something like that happened to my baby. My sympathies and all the best to you and your friend. Give her time to mourn her loss. She will be ok, because she has known chi love, and chi love is a magical thing;)
