Question Apple Head Deer Heads!?

Ok so I'm totally confused at this ladies reaction to my chi's..

I love both Apple Heads and Deer Head chi's theyre beautiful and I love that chihuahuas come in all shapes and sizes.... But I'm drawing a blank here.

So I was out a walk today with my two before it started to rain pretty heavy oh Scotland , we were running about in the park when a lady asked me what breed they were I said Chihuahuas one is a smooth coat and one a long coat. She looked totally bemused and said she has never seen a chihuahua with that head shape (apple) before and was I sure they were full breeds which personally I found cheeky. I explained nicely that my two were whats commonly referred to in the chi world as apple headed and that its actually the breed standard but maybe shes used to seeing the deer heads as they are common over here and I find them really cute as well I just so happen to have two apple heads. She was certain they were not chihuahuas and they were to small to be able to enjoy whatever the hell that means. I told her that they are full breeds as I have all their paperwork and very beautiful to me and her opinion whilst her own I dont really care about as they are my babies. I'm rather proud I kept my cool as a Glasweigan we do have the rep as being totally hot headed. The lady proceeded to turn her nose up and stormed off.. someone was not in the best of moods but I am still pretty shocked and how brazen and rude some people are when it comes to dogs. I couldnt help but laugh at how personal she took me telling her about different headshapes ha!
Like who cares what head shape or size your dog is? Its your baby and you love it regardless.

Oh and heres a new pic of Neeva shes growing a bitty and that was her sitting nice at training class, she is still not blowing her coat the rest of the litter have already shes a slow one!

Your dog's are gorgeous and are clearly Chihuahuas! I don't think I would have been able to stay as calm and collected as you did. What a rude woman! Even if I saw someone with a dog and I didn't think they were pure bred, I'd never be so rude and condescending as to tell them they weren't and insult their size. Some people are so rude!

Sorry, I went off on a rant there. Enjoy your beautiful, clearly breed standard, pups and don't let others bring you down.

Shes just sitting under 2 pounds the now at 3 months! shes still a little shorty though but her coat is just seeming to get longer her tail hair is crazy long so is her butt fluff and down the back of her legs even her feet! So I'm waiting paitently for it all to fall out shes still a little hairball. And god knows why people are so bizarre honestly! Ive dealt with a few crazy dog people but she takes the cake ha!!

People are bonkers, I'm surprised I kept my cool because I'm so defensive about my babies they are like my kids ha i'd never walk up to someones child like "HMM WHAT BREED IS THIS ITS A BIT SMALL IS IT NOT?" So bizarre. She looked genuinely disgusted when I said that chihuahuas come in all shapes in sizes.. She wasnt a happy bunny! I'm mega unwell right now so maybe all the flu medicine has sedated me a bit thats why I was so chilled

Wow clearly that woman was very ignorant about chihuahuas. And small dogs. And of course tiny dogs can be as much fun, what a silly thing to say.

One thing I've learnt since having chihuahuas is that virtually everyone has an opinion about them (whether they're familiar with the breed or not) and for some reason they have an urge to voice it out loud. LOL I've had dogs my whole life and I've never experienced this with other breeds. With chis I get ridiculous comments all the time. I also get a ton of good comments though.

On another note Neeva is looking as cute as ever!! What a pretty little girl. And she definitely looks like a full chihuahua.

Aww Camille tell me about it people are mental! Though I got stopped by a gang of kids last night all over neeva which was mega cute she was loving it.

Most people are of the opinion that tiny dogs are yappy horrible things which is not true at all ha! Whenever I tell anyone Ive got chihuahuas its the usual eye roll and "oh they wee snappy rats" But theyll never get to experience how amazing they are at all !

Your dogs are, of course, both gorgeous. Can't believe such rudeness. You're right about everyone having an opinion. Seems like almost everyone asks if Piper's a teacup. But that's not rude. I applaud you for staying calm.
