Default Patiently Waiting!

We finally found the perfect addition for our family! Her name is Porsche and she is a tiny little Apple Head Chihuahua! She was born to a litter of 4 on August 20, 2012. She should weigh no more than a few pounds full grown. It's just my husband, Aaron, and I at home now (empty nesters) and it will be so great having Porsche to love on!

We will pick her up in 2 weeks and we've already started shopping! We now have her puppy patch and piddle pads for potty training, 2 little dresses for lounging around, food and water bowls in pink and browns and some Rachel Ray Nutrish dog food to start her out eating healthy.

We have also read lots of the posts on this forum and some training books. We have watched a LOT of the Dog Whisperer videos too. I think we're ready!
Now, we just wait patiently till we can bring her home!

I know! I'm so anxious. I really love this Chi Diary. I love writing things down. It's a great idea.

Awh she's beautiful! How exciting! The waiting stinks, but it's so worth it! We picked out Leo at 4 weeks, so it was a long 4 week wait to pick him on. On the bright side, it gave us time to get all his things ready for his homecoming! Congrats!!

Congrats!

We are also empty nesters and we have filled our home with Chis!

I have attached a non-biased ratings site for you to check foods you plan to feed. Contrary to what you may believe since it is celebrity chef endorsed, Nutrish is not a high quality food. You can check foods rated 5 star to get an idea of what you'll want to look for to get her off to a strong, healthy start. At the size they are, our chis nutrition is super important. EVERY bite counts.

There are plenty here who are nutrition obsessed (me included) who can help you find a great food for her if you have trouble.

Congrats again on your addition!

I completely agree with Karen. Nutrition is of utmost importance and I would not feed Nutrish personally. I'd be more than happy to help you find an excellent food if you want, too.

Congrats on the new edition! She's a beauty!!

I love everyone's custom signatures. So I made one using my digital scrapbooking program and I want to see if it's working...

Here goes....
