Apologies for being away...
Things have changed a bunch for me and Ponyo, so I'm sorry we haven't been on!
Since her attack at the grooming salon, tensions had skyrocketed. Set aside the fact that the place wasn't being run properly, but having a Chihuahua has helped me realize many things: among them being that her size is much more allowable for different and new situations.
I left my job at the grooming shop and have begun registration for college! I've never even thought I could go so I'm nervous, and I've really been trying to put together a new dog schedule since Ponyo no longer has 5-8 hours of controlled exercise time (since her attack, all the dogs became kenneled... this is an "in detail" concept about grooming I could go on about but won't.) Thankfully her size is very easy to work with, and the other two are older so they don't require a regiment. They are happy so sleep all day and wait for us at night.
Please wish us luck in our new life! We're having to figure so much out! But coming here to the forums and loving Chihuahuas will be what helps keep us grounded!
