Well I didn't really post an intro so here goes. My name is Rachel and I'm from Scotland I have 1 chihuahua called Charlotte, her birthday is on the 29th of January and we got her on the 30th of march 2012.
A photo of her when she was a baby
She was from a lady a few hours drive away we went to see the puppies and there was to a very playful little boy and the most beautiful gorgeous amazing shy little girl and she was hiding under her brother from the moment I layed my eyes on her I knew she was the one, I got home and played with her all night and making sure my other dog did not feel left out of course then I got my duvets and pillows and I slept downstairs with her!

I woke up in the night to the weirdest sensation in my head she had my hair in her mouth and was pulling it as far as it would go from this moment on she wasn't the shy little baby I brought home. Up in the morning bright eyes and bushy tailed we went to our local pet store (pets at home) and bought all the basic supplies that we would need. We adored the living daylight out of Charlotte and she adored her big brother Benji the papillon.
Charlotte and Benji
Benji and Charlotte were ever so close spending every minute of everyday together. Then disaster struck Benji got seriously ill (not wanting to go into detail as I'm in floods of tears at the thought of it) and ended up in heaven on the 29th of July. There is not one day that passes that I don't think about him, he was the most beautiful boy to walk on this earth and he was my childhood he was always there for me and I love him with all my heart. :,( everything was miserable for a long time Charlotte didn't understand what had happened obviously and I'm sure she misses him also but she's what got me through it because I still needed to look after her, she's the only reason I got out of bed every morning.
I'm so glad that we got Charlotte as she helped me through the loss of Benji who was my everything (obviously I loved Charlotte equally) he was my hero and I cannot express my love for that boy in words. If I never got Charlotte I'd probably never of got another dog as she was by no means a replacement and nobody could ever replace him.
Charlotte has been an amazing baby although she likes to have her body against your face so you can't breathe:/ not sure if that's normal but she does it.
She's gorgeous and all that I wished for when getting her and more. She is my world. You can only upload 5 attachments per post so ill put a few pictures of her up after. Anyway this is more of a life story than an introduction so I understand if you don't want to continue reading.
She is sometimes quite annoying though as she goes on the back of the couch and squeaks her toys in your ear
She also howls in the night so we check up on her and she just wants to play when we are trying to sleep as I'm presuming she sleeps when I am at school and my family is at work.
I would not give her up for all the money in the world though because she's far too precious.
I joined this forum as I have OCD. Obsessive chihuahua disorder I am honestly obsessed. I love buying her stuff and spoiling her rotten, I also would like to start making her some stuff as I truly have been inspired by some of the amazing things people have put up in the craft section, some people on here have so much skill it's breathtaking honestly.
Ps. We- refers to my mother and myself. As although I'm her mum we also class my mum as her mum as she has 2 mums. It's a bit weird and I trust no hate will come on this as it is mature and people who love chihuahuas o. Here not people trying to cause hassle or anything it started of I chose her and it was decided the dog was for me. Both me and my mum look after her. My mum and me used to argue 24/7 over who was the mum as we both wanted Charlotte all too ourselves. We finally decided Charlotte was both of ours as it would be more beneficial to Charlotte having two people who love her more than anything my mum calls Charlotte her baby and her favourite girl and I do get jelous lol. Benji was my mums son (my brother) and we got him when I was a child. I am only a teenager and I live with my mum so our arrangements work fine about us both being there for Charlotte. I am uncertain what will happen when I am able to leave home as I know 100% that I am not leaving Charlotte behind and my mother says I can't take Charlotte away from her :S I can't wait to see what the future has in store for us and I just hope Charlotte stays well and safe. Sorry if I'm going on about something nobody cares about but this is very personal and thought people should know what I am about a bit more seeing as I am planning on using this and don't want to seem all mysterious. Anyway that's me for now.
