Wink Do you take your Chi when you run errands?! TIPS!

Hello! I have a female Chihuahua & she is 1.8 lbs. full grown. I have a purse style dog carrier for her that was a gift for Christmas but I really haven't had the opportunity to use it yet. I was wondering where you all take your Chi's with you, how often, and what you put them in? Also - has anyone ever said anything to you about having your dog with you?! I've brought my pup in the gas station, the fish/pet store, and 5 Below (a dollar store of sorts). I wanted to try to take her in the mall but was not daring enough! I would not take her in the grocery story or a restaurant, just to be courteous. What are you all's opinions? Thanks!!

I wouldn't think she is full grown at only 6 months old. I was told they would be expected to be 'physically' fully grown at around 10-12 months although still gaining a little weight for a few months after that!

I thought my boy, who is a chi x jrt, was small at 2lbs 8ozs at almost 2 years old.
I would be worried sick if he was almost half that size fully grown.

Wow! Thanks for letting me know. I think she is closer to 9 months, anyway, her birthday is June 9th. I was just "rounding" - my mistake! But you're probably right that she may grow a bit more. I will edit the post and put her exact age in! But anyway - do you take your Chi anywhere with you?

Hehe, I just had a thread like this.

People pretty much said they just bring them in and no one has said anything. One woman said she was asked to leave a grocery store but that's it.

That's amazing as LeStats birthday is the 9th June 2010....what a coincidence!

I have started to take him everywhere with me lately...he comes to the shopping centre, train station, chemists and even the doctors when I take my granddaughter to the baby clinic. I don't take him into the food shops as you say but he comes into every other shop we go into.
I've never been challenged when I've had him with me even though the shopping centre says 'no dogs'...if anyone says anything I'm going to say he's a gerbil in disguise....lol

I posted a similar question on Yahoo Answers & got a ton of "DON'T BRING YOUR DOG IN ANYWHERE" answers. I'm glad that everyone on Chi-People is much more understanding since they have little ones Thanks!!! I'm gonna go check out your thread!

LOL - "gerbil in disguise!" This is good news!!! I'm always so nervous to take her in somewhere and be "called out" about having a dog in a store, glad to hear that not many others have had problems. It's not like she will be walking around and in sight - she'll be in her "doggy purse" - still somewhat visible, but not doing anything that would hurt or bother anyone else. Thanks for your answer!!!

I take mine almost everywhere! I even took them to the Neurologists office ( he's an hour away and I'm there usually an hour and you never know about the traffic retuning...I don't like leaving them more than 4 hours) and no one said anything-- other than several "oh how sweet" whispers here and there!

Then they have been to the grocery, many lunch places, the mall-- but it's the inside/ outside kind, home depot...and the list goes on!

I'll post a pic of my carrier later today...gotta get back to work now
