Chica joined our family a year ago today!
It's easy to remember her anniversary because I adopted her on my birthday. I knew I wanted to rescue another dog, and I was leaning strongly towards a chihuahua because I'd heard how affectionate and sweet they can be. There weren't any chis available for adoption at our local shelter (the one we adopted our yorkie-poo Rascal from), so I drove over an hour to another shelter in a neighboring town. I'm SO glad I did, because Chica has brought so much joy and laughter to our family.
I spent time with a few different chis that day, but Chica grabbed my heart with her fun combination of loving affection and spunky curiosity. This little 7 lb girl has stolen my heart over the last year, and now I can't imagine life without her!
