Aww my chis have always loved ripping paper/cardboard as well, but mainly empty toilet rolls so that's ok. lol

It's great that he's been so easy to potty train so far, I bet that makes up for the paper ripping fascination!

You are right Camille, his ability to learn so quickly about potty training has been such a wonderful surprise for us, especially for a male. Over the past 26 years, hubby and I have opened our home to 12 other chi babies (3 of which are still with us) and we have never had one catch on with such consistency at such a young age. We have always found females to be easier and quicker to train than our boys, until little Mick. He is truly amazing.. smart as a whip. I am quite impressed with his comprehension of what we tell him, hubby says he is scary smart.. If he didn't have selective hearing about not tearing up all paper, he would be about perfect, lol

Two of our past chi babies lived to be over 16 years old. Most around 14 years. Sadly, we did have two with heart murmurs that we lost at 9 years old, and 10 years old. Our 10 year old (Bandy) was also diabetic and on insulin shots for years twice daily. We just lost him on March 30, 2016, so that feeling of loss is still painfully fresh. We said due to be in our 60s, that we wouldn't bring home any more babies.. but then we met Mick!

Mick sounds like a 'perfect' dog! Being in your 60's doesn't mean you shouldn't get other dogs! I'm 79 almost, and still have 3 chi's. I probably won't get another puppy when Zarita finally dies from heart failure, but may get an older female? Rescue?

Susan, you keep on truckin' girl, lol. The babies/puppies are a bit for us to handle these days, but we will hopefully have a chi till the day we leave this world... I think Mick will be our last, but if for any reason he does not outlive us both, we would definitely consider adding an adult chi in need of love and a home to our family.
