Default My non existant chi.

One of my "issues" is going well/ AKA the financial one.
I'm on my way to starting a massage room and my mom said I have three people would come. I'm working on my techniques.
If I can give more massages...$$ for me. I need to set up my new massage room soon.

I'm currently moving my art supplies ( did I mention I 'm an artist already?.). They are all sitting in the massage room now and can't stay there obviously. Not doing much art-work these days sadly.

Friend of mine is not happy to hear that I'd consider either a rescue or breeder pup. It's a moral dilemma for me.

I went through hip dysplasia with my late eskie. It limited the outings because she'd limp. I really don't want to go through that again if I end up with a chi that has patellar Luxation or heart issues.

I've decided that I don't care if a chi comes to me as a puppy or an adult, both have advantages and disadvantages so that is a non issue for me.

It does seem like it'd be harder to find a genetically healthy chi from a good breeder in a rescue or shelter.
I'd like a red long hair chi and so far all the ones I've found seem to have major health issues.
I guess I could be criticized for being "picky" since there seems to be multiples of short hair chis in rescues.

Maybe I am?...Thing is I feel if after I've moved away to college, lived in a no dogs allowed apartment for years, now that I can finally get a pup that might be with me for 20 yrs and might be the only dog I can I have....maybe I should get exactly the dog I want.

During my past searches, I found a picture of a longhair chihuahua I later identified as "red" , put the picture on my desktop and decided that is what I want.
I would have called the chihuahua tawny...But whatever... Since the chi web-pages said red was a common chi color, I figured I'll have no problems finding one that looks like this picture.

It can be done!

I have a red Chi/Pom mix that looks all Chi for the most part. She was a rescue and has no health problems.

Be patient and you can find what you're looking for!

Good luck in your search. You're wise to hold out for what you really want since she will be with you for a long time. Saying that...I have a red (and white) LC Chi & she is healthy healthy as well.

Good luck!
I think it's totally fine to be picky and know what you want. x

Had a very localized disaster. Guess what happens when I moved over my last batch of stuff after moving for about two weeks?
Turns out the furnace was defective and resulted in a "lovely" experience called a puff back. I'm calling it minature volcano because that was my first reaction when I saw it. I called up the parents and told them a volcano had erupted in the new house.

First off when I was forced to turn off the defective furnace, a tank of killifish I had just moved over died when the temps dropped too low during the night. I delayed moving my third aquarium because of it until the last minute.

Nobody told me about what this is, I just found out about a week later browsing online to figure out how to clean it up. Now when the cleaning person goes over to check, I'm told don't stay there, it's toxic.
I will have professional cleaning people come over for about a week. Everything I own is covered with toxic goo and has to be cleaned. My life now revolves around the mini volcano.

( Sarcasm) Just how I wanted to spend my time after spending time moving and cleaning my apartment. Now all the other fish need to be moved out by Monday after they were moved about a week ago and I wasn't even finished setting them up in the first place.
I'm worried about stressing them out too much moving them around like this.
I am so furious that the last people didn't tell us about this problem because it's causing heaps of totally preventable problems.

In other news, I did get a chihuahua offer before Christmas. I told them it has to be postponed due to the moving issues and I'd wait until Jan.
I got the dog stuff, but of course now it has to be cleaned too. The crate I got was right near the epicenter of the disaster in the basement. Well, I was going to clean it anyhow because it was used so I had it sitting next to the sink down there. Now it's just a bit more toxic.
This ordeal is out of control so not much else I can do if they get impatient.

I'm seriously glad I was chihuahualess during this incident. I really don't know what might have happened, maybe I don't want to know because I'll just get more furious. At the very least , poor chi with blackened paws/legs possibly ingesting toxic furnace goo. Cleaning guy did look at my crate and I told them there was no dog yet, just the plans. I really wish I could go out a buy a geothermal heater because now I'm terrified of this happening to me again/.

I'm being told by parents that I shouldn't get any chi anymore because there are too many problems happening.
So I get put down, all because I said I'm going to try and contact the people with the chi offer and see if I can't go down and see them this weekend.
I get mocked that I've come down with a raspy throat and that if I say it probably came from the exposure of the fumes, I'm playing blame games.
I haven't been around other people enough to catch anything so I drew a logical conclusion.

Gotta love..."you have to take some responsibility for it"....Yeah...for the furnace malfunction that happened as I was moving in after I was told the house was inspected.
Yet somehow it's partly MY FAULT!!!!.
It's good I might spend a couple of weeks wiping down and cleaning everything with soot sponges that cost me $3 a pop because apparently I deserved this mess somehow. I wiped down my outdoors activity bins with one sponge and I barely finished, I think I may need as many as 50 of these at this rate.

The "too many problems" are not coming from me, entirally inflicted on me by the third party who is not taking responsibility for the problems they are causing. I've told them so many times, go pick up the phone and scream at the responsible party who is NOT ME. Who sold them the house without warning about the furnace problem ahead of time so it started spewing out toxic stuff and we could prevent the problems?. Who didn't obey the disclosure laws?.

I get so furious for being blamed for this mess on a regular basis. I get mocked about the carcingenic exposure and told I'm a whimp. I get told, it'll all be over when the pro cleaners leave...
No it won't, my property has been permanently damaged and I'm scared of what that dose of toxic chemicals is doing with my health already compromised from the child hood illness.

I'm trying to take a deep breath, look at all your lovely chi pics and other positive stuff.
I wish the insurance would pay for me to stay at a hotel while the professional cleaning was going on because the abusive language is not helping me cope.
Just trying to stay calm so I can get productive, what whatever I can do with cleaning and get my law suit rolling without doing anything stupid.
