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

We originally had a chihuahua mix when I was growing up. She was a great dog. My cousin got one from a rescue for her birthday, then my mother got one from the poind, then a co-worker gave me one. I have had good experiences with chihuahua's so it was the best choice for me.

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

I have one named Romeo. It was the name his previous owners gave him.

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

An onlooker caught me at Peto talking to my dog about what to buy.

Who owns who?

He definitely has me trained. He is 12 now and still lively, but every morning he comes into my room while I am working so I can put him on a table with a pillow by the window so he can sun. He also directs me to make changes as the sun's position moves. Also, I potty trained him using treats, so sometimes he drives me nuts going back and forth to do his business so he can get several treats in a row within a few minutes. I think I still own him, but he definitely has his demands.


I am a long time chi owner (it's a family tradition). I've had Romeo for 11 years.
