Default Introducing Gobo!

Here he is, my new rescue Chihuahua! Turns out he is only about 4.5 months old, though his paperwork says he is a year old, and other people told me he was born in October or December of last year. I knew he was young when I saw he still had baby canine teeth, and he really only has adult incisors!

He is named Gobo after the central fraggle character in Fraggle Rock.

We went to the vet yesterday and he is healthy other than probable worms. He is so young, and neutered and had his rabies vaccine a few weeks ago. Oh, well. He was given some wormer which should help clear up his constant, loose-ish stools. After it makes them worse, probably. He is just over 3 pounds right now.

First Gobo is adorable! Such a handsome boy! Second, when you went to the vet, did they trim his nails? They look really long in the pictures. This can affect the way he walks. JMO.

I did not let them trim his nails, though they almost did it without asking me! I do nails myself, just need to have treats and a helper. They look worse than they are, as the quicks are short.

And here is his pen I finally got set up yesterday!

Gobo is doing all kinds of teething. The day before yesterday, one of his lower canines fell out when he was chewing on my lap, yesterday I noticed his other lower canine was gone, and today a premolar fell on my lap at chewing time!

He is doing well walking on the leash on my left, and he is letting the cat get closer before he barks at her. Today I got the best compliment, too. I was at a pet shop with him and he was loving all over the ladies who worked there, and they said he was the bravest and most outgoing Chi they had seen! One said she never liked Chis, but Gobo made her a convert!
