Hello everyone!

I stumbled upon this wonderful forum a couple of days ago, and my eyes are actually burning from sitting at the computer and reading all the great posts for the past two days! :shock: :lol:
What a nice group of helpful and dedicated people! :hello1:

I made one post in the "sell/buy" section (thank you for your welcome note ozzysmom :) ), so the ones of you who read it know that I do not have a Chi yet.
But I am working on it! I just want to make sure I do this right and find a responsible breeder.

I live in Portland, OR and I am originally from Europe.
My family consists of one husband, two sons, one 90lb black lab mix and two cats. The three furry members came from a shelter where I used to volunteer.
I have wanted a Chihuahua since my pre-teen years and it seems that now - over two decades later - the time is finally right. :thumbright:

Sofia Bella is the name I have chosen for my :angel13: :)

I just wanted to drop a note and introduce myself, and as soon as I find my dream puppy girl, I will write more.
I will just keep reading and absorbing all the great information here for now. :sign7: :)

Thank you!

Many thanks to all for your warm welcome! :)

I am going to a toy breed dog show tomorrow, and I also found several breeders on the Breeders.net website, so I am doing my homework! :)

Thank you again for your good luck wishes!

I have my girl now :)

I found a link in another message thread here - breeders.net - and after reading all the info, I contacted the one that sounded like the most responsible breeder.
We e-mailed questions and answers for a couple of days and it turned out she had just the puppy I was looking for! :hello1:
I drove over an hour to meet the puppy yesterday, and she is quietly sleeping in my lap as I type this. :love7:
She is tiny and that's why the breeder kept her till she was 4 months old.
She should be under 4lb as an adult.
I am sorry I don't have a picture....our digital camera broke just as hubby tried to take pictures of our new arrival. Doesn't that just figure!!! :roll:
She is fawn and has a beautiful "apple" head.
I picked out a name before I met her - Sofia Bella - but as some of you may know, it's not always a good idea. :D The name just didn't fit her, so we waited. Then hubby walked into the room this morning, looked at the puppy and said...that's Pepita. I had to laugh, but I love the name....it fits her perfectly. :)
I tried to find some sweaters for her at Petco today, but even the XS is too big for her! :?
Anyway, didn't mean to make this so long, just wanted to share my excitement with you. :)
I am already in love with her. :love4:

Oh she sounds so cute and sweet!!! I am so happy for you!! you are right about the digital camera thing, it seems they either break or run out of memory or something right when it is a special moment!!! Can't wait for you to fix it and post some that is for sure!!! :D Congrats!!! (that is sweet that your hubby wants to name her Pepita, that is actually really quite cute!!)

Thank you all! :)

I will try the socks, Vala444 - sounds like a great idea! :)

We are actually returning the camera, because it was new. But I promise to make a proper introduction of Pepita once I get her pictures on the comp. :)
