Default Social butterfly ears


She is 10 months and 6.4 pounds. Phoebe was named after Annie Oakley, who was born as Phoebe ann Mosey.

I can't get over how big her ears are in comparison to her head. I'm in serious squee mode. I hope she will fill out. She's holding her ears at attention here, they usually lay like chi ears are supposed to.

We've had her a week. She likes kibbles right now and will not touch other food. She is very food cautious. She won't sit with me and eat seaweed snacks the way foxxy and taggert would. She likes natural chews and won't touch anything that smells like mint or vegetables. She likes cheese. So far she has chewed up her step in harness, the waist band of my pants, the end of her slicker brush, and the jewels off of her leash. She has discovered every last hidden kleenex and q-tip lurking in the dusty corners of my apartment.

She spent the first couple of days piddling on all the dirty pants and underwear, right in the crotch, and messed her crate twice but we have her on a 3 hour walking schedule now and she is not having many accidents at all. In all it's been a suspiciously easy prospect to widdle train her. pooping is another story. She likes to hold it. She gets distracted. After we got her, she didn't poop for three days and when she did it was in the kitchen.

And today she got her first bath

Today I miss my foxxy very much. We took taggert and phoebe on Foxxy's favorite walk, out to the convenience store on the corner where everyone adores them and wants to pet them.

We spent the afternoon comparing phoebe and Foxxy. We talked about what we missed about our little girl, and what we're not going to miss. We gave my mother in law a paw print. Foxxy was her rescue too. She helped pay for her spay and our dog fees. We were very poor when foxxy came to us.

Foxxy was a challenge. She was feral, hard eyed, and reserved with other dogs. She was a communicator. She was stubborn, suffered from first dog syndrome, the lack of consistent training, overindulgence at times, but fierce, loyal, happy, like a chihuahua should be. Her teeth were bright and shiny even up to her death.

Phoebe is none of that. She has gentle, trusting eyes. SHe corrects easily. I don't think she has ever been treated badly, which was not the case with Foxxy and Taggert.

Do we get rewarded for having a challenge dog like foxxy by getting a dream dog like phoebe? I think I'm going to be spoiled having a dog like her

A great tribute to Foxxy. She led you to adopt Phoebe, I'm sure!

This is the soul sucking chair. If you sit in it, you will instantly have 2 chihuahuas on your lap. You will be required to pet their little heads and let them feed off of your will to get up and do anything. Whatever you do, don't give into the temptation to extend the footrest. DO NOT RECLINE.

You reclined didn't you. Chihuahuas on either leg still sleeping and your eyes just closed. Just one commercial break, that's what you thought, didn't you. And now three hours of your life has been siphoned away, the dishes are still dirty, and broadcast channel court TV is nattering but you can't change the channel because somehow now your arms are also underneath the dreambeasts and it wouldn't be right to disturb the peace.

I warned you, you fool.

Warrior Chihuahuas

Chihuahuas are all, 100% warriors. The aztecs believed that the soul of a man was very tiny in the afterlife, but the soul of a chihuahua was so big that you could ride it down the path to their version of heaven. In fact, you couldn't get there without at least 3 or 4 of them.

Warriors are peaceful yet valliant, willing to be gentle, yet brave enough to go down screaming defiance. People at the AKC think that Chihuahuas have a "terrier" like personality. They don't. No other dog in the world was deified like the chihuahua and they've completely lived up to their reverence. Cats can only stare jealously. Cow can only stop traffic and demand attention.

If you have a chihuahua's love you have everything. Period. End of story.

I love pheobes big grin she's adorable. Little warriors they certainly are and i have the same problem, if you can call it that, when I sit on my couch I instantly have a fur ball curled up on my lap. I got Padme after losing my first chi boy and nothing helped me more than having her love and giving her mine I think Pongo brought her to me and me to her either way he had his paw in it. I'm sorry to hear about Foxxy but I'm glad she sent pheobe your way and you Ihave her to love on and she you. Who's the pup on the chair?

Oh that's Taggert, he's my 8y/o that we got in 2010. Taggert was my shy guy. they found him running stray too. I thionk wherever he was he was not treated very well. He's headshy. he hates quick movements, but he's gentle and introverted so he has these lighning fast reflexes to dodge where a lot of dogs would nip. We joke that Taggert is an old people's dog. He is content to be loved forever, slowly and gently, in quiet places with no children anywhere. He does like to sprint around the leashless park. He' a funny thing when he does, his sickle tail turns upside down like a question mark and he runs flat out like a goofball. He's outpaced rabbits.

He's a love mooch. He's the one that tries to bully the other dog out of the prime petting places. I actually had to train him to "back off" when he gets pushy for attention.

Taggert is my corpophage, he used to get into the litter tray and steal foxxy's poo, he used to overmark foxxy on the walk all the time. He's good with other dogs, but as long as they are polite with him. He doesn't care for big, bouncy dogs but he's never started any fights.

He also answers to buddy, bud-bud, handsome, and grr-guy (as opposed to grr-girl)

Hes so cute! wow he is a quick little guy to outpace rabbits I bet that's funny to see with a question mark tail how adorable. Seems to me that although he didn't start out with a good and loving home he sure ended up with one. I can't believe anyone could abandon and hurt such a cutie pie.
