Default How attached is your chi to you?

I just recently got a 10 week old chihuahua puppy, & she will be staying with my step mom for a few weeks to a month to get her stable in her new environment.

I know Chihuahuas tend to attach themselves to one person (although personally it's never happened with any of my chihuahuas), will she get attached to my step mom more than me? I've been worried about that, I want her to know I am the primary caretaker.

I have 2chis, The male is overly-attached to me and the female is closer to my husband. I don't know how that happened, I spend most of my time at home.

In my experience there is no a reason why, at least not with mine, each of us spend time with them, feed them and play together and separately to avoid this strong attachments.

Gemma is completely attached to me. She also loves my boyfriend, but if it's my boyfriend and myself in the same room, she will come to me. She always wants to be in my lap. Since we brought her home, I am the one who has trained her, fed her, and walked her, so she has learned that I am the master.

Roxy is so attached to me. If I go out of the room and she can't follow me she'll sit n cry at the door even if my bf is in the room and trying to fuss her. Luckily I'm with her most of the time or I think she'd have a breakdown lol

I had my chi (Midgie's) mom. She had 5 pups, one passed away. I let my mother have pick of the litter as I couldn't keep any since I, myself was pregnant with twins. Midgie lived with me the first 2 months of her life then went to live with my mom the next 8 months. My mother gave me Midgie back reluctantly because the mother chi passed away 10 months later after the pups were born, so then I was chi-less. Midgie is attached to my hip & has always been. Don't know if she was as attached to my mother like she is me, but I don't think so. My mother also has a Corgi which I think Midgie was more bonded to when she had her.

We have a male chi and he is attached to me. He loves the OH but it's me he sleeps with or comes to. The OH is the trainer but I'm the primary care giver! I love how attached he is too me!

The beauty of having 3 is that there is someone for everyone!

I am the care giver, feeder, nail trim taker, Vet appointment maker and taker, trainer and while one loves me a ridiculous amount and is my constant companion, one loves my husband just as much and the third loves us both equally.

Oddly, the descriptions I just gave match the order of the photos below...
