Default Hello everybody!

Hello everybody! My name is Valerie and I am a new mommy to a chihuahua puppy. He is almost 13 weeks old and named Goober. My husband brought him home at the end of November as a Christmas present to me. We also have a pit mix, 4 cats, and 2 sons so I have quite the circus on my hands, but I love every minute of it. I was a little worried about my 2 year old and the puppy, but they get along great. He is very gentle and knows not to pick up the puppy and to pet nice. Plus Im extra cautious and never leave them alone I look forward to getting more involved with this community, making some new friends, and learning as I go. Here are some pictures of Goober!

He is just precious, are both his eyes blue or just the one? I love his coloring and makings. Your husband is a keeper.. LOL

Thank you!

Ive always wanted a chi, and he knows it. I just didnt particularly want one right now, with two little boys. More for the pups safety than my kids. Im certainly not complaining because Im in love with the little fellow and things have worked out quite well so far. Im dedicated to providing a safe environment for the pup, and lots of socialization to make sure hes well rounded.

He has one blue eye. I love the brindle too. My husband, well... he didnt go about this the right way. Goober is a craigslist special. Not very well bred, but adorable and I love him all the same. Both the dog and the hubby. He meant well. My next chi (what can I say, Im addicted already!) will either be a rescue or from a reputable breeder.

Hubby is still all "Im not going to like this dog. I only got it for you. Its a rat. How can you like that thing?" Meanwhile, everytime I turn around hes cuddling with him and wrapping him in blankets, kissing him. Yup, looks like hatred to me!

Well I got Ike 2 1/2 months ago, he is my Christmas present. I bought from what I thought is a reputable breeder, she only has 2 males and 2 females. I found him on eBay classifieds. Since I have had him, I have seen her advertise again, found out as soon as one littler is gone she let them mate again. So her 2 females are constantly pregnant. Sad. Men are funny they try not to mess with little dogs, considered tham as a ladies dog, but they end up loving them as much as a big dog, I guess it is a man thing..

Welcome! Goober is very cute, I love the one blue eye!

It's good that you recognize that your hubby went about it the wrong way. Next time, you guys will know the right channels. And the biggest thing with kids and Chis is making sure that the kids respect the Chi and that they learn to treat him gently and carefully. Boundaries between kids and pup are important.

Welcome again, and good luck!
