I am a first responder with our local volunteer fire department. Sunday morning we had a medical emergency that I responded to. After we got the gentleman onto a stretcher and I was headed out the door I noticed three children sitting on the couch and the youngest one (probably 2 or 3) had a very small chihuahua puppy. She was holding it on its back and twisting it's little legs backwards. I said "OMG a chihuahua puppy! Can I hold it?" I picked him up and held him and he just whinned and whimpered. I had the EMT's medical bag so I had to put the puppy down sooner then I wanted to, but when I tried to give him back to the little girl he backed up into my arm pit. He very obviously didn't want to go back to her and I can't say I blame him. I had to set the medical bag down and get down on my knees to set him on the couch. I looked at the little girl and I told her to be very gentle with the tiny puppy that he could be hurt very easily because he's so little. I thought about that poor little fella all day Sunday, I wanted so badly to go back and get him. My husband asked me why I didn't stick him in my pocket, if I thought I could have gotten away with it I would have. Why do parents let little children play unsupervised with a tiny tiny chi baby??
