Why did you choose to bring a chi into your home?

I wanted to have one of those cute little dogs. It was a spontaneous decision but luckily it was the right decision! And since having Fiesta was so much fun, we added Mingo and Napoleon!

How many & what's their names? How did pick their names?

3 Chis. Fiesta just popped into my head. Mingo was the name of a Chihuahua my grandmother had in the 1950's. Napoleon, well, we mistakenly assumed the little guy would have small dog syndrome & attitude. Napoleon seemed perfect. Fiesta passed away Feb 2014. Our pack has changed and expanded...we have Gnomie McGee and Emma and we always have Fiesta but just in our hearts!

What is the silliest thing you've ever caught yourself doing for your chi?

Chewing biscuits so that they were smaller and easier for my little ones to eat. Disgustingly true.

Who owns who?

Oh, I used to think they owned us but now, I "own" them but really being politically correct, I am their guardian.


Mingo, Nappy, Gnomie McGee and Emma. The original 3 chis included our Fiesta who left us February 2014.
