I am new here so here goes my intro post!
I have always been a crazy cat lady first and foremost so dogs were never on my radar...until my mum got a toy poodle x coton de tulear pup. And then surprised myself with how attached I’ve become...(even though she still chases my cat...oh well, its something to work on lol)
I encouraged to take her to puppy classes and there we met this beautiful clever quiet chihuahua girl. We’ve been going to the same class for a number of weeks now and Bonnie has definitely made a friend!
But honestly, although it is a lot of work I am having so much fun that I wasn’t expecting, and my eyes have really been opened I guess? Almost every chi we have met has been attached to their person, but still sociable and well-mannered ...completely blowing all my preconceived notions based on false yappy-dressup-doll stereotypes.
I have started reading up some more info and I am completely sold so far.
Problem is...I live with my parents. My mum is very supportive and would love Bonnie to have a chi friend for life. My dad on the other hand has always claimed he dislikes sogs and adding Bonnie to our household was pushing a lot of limits...he dislikes the mess mostly, but tbh he has never really taken much to them in general. Since Bonnie is doing so well with training, and is finally getting the knack of outdoor-potty-time, there’s a little part of me that thinks I could convince him to allow me to have my very own little doggy companion...
...but until then I am here to dig up some info and read stuff up, and also to admire and adore all your beautiful chihuahuas
Hopefully get to know some of you soon!
