I was just curious if anyone out there has a larger sized chi. My "big girl" is a deer-head chihuahua and she weighs in at 14.5 pounds. She's not fat, but very athletic and large boned. I have to say that it was disappointing when she continued getting larger, but that just means more to love. :love7: Her name is Maybelline and her little sister's name is Misty (5 lbs). Both are very attached to each other. We laugh and say that Maybelline has her own chihuahua!

At least 3 of mine weigh 15 lbs or more. They are obese though and i haven't posted their pictures since i got here because of that.

My first chi, Poco, was 14-16 lbs. He was also big boned and muscular.

Cooper is a little over 10 lbs... maybe 11 lbs since he ate the chooclate bar (yes, I'm still bitter about that)... but he's chunky as well as muscular.

Sophie's a large chi. She's about 10lbs. and that is a good weight for her.
Since we got her we've also seen others that are larger than what you normally see.
We like her size as she is still smaller than most other small breeds that we see.

My friend's chi is 17 lbs. His litter mates are all smaller though. She loves him oodles. He's such a sweetie. She always refers to him as her big little fella :)

My girl fluctuates between 8 and 9 pounds, depending on how many treats she talks me into. :lol: She's a really skinny chi, just really tall with enormous ears. Sometimes I think if she were smaller she wouldn't be able to play with her sister (a 17 pound cutest-mutt-in-the-world) They can get rough with each other!

I almost didn't want Lily because she was so small. She was 3 1/2 pounds the day I met her and she'd already packed on about half a pound from the time she left the puppy mill. Can you imagine a dog that tiny being forced to have litter after litter of puppies??? :evil:

Now she's right around 4 pounds which seems perfect to me. :wave:

It's nice to know that a few of you have larger chi's, too. I have had some not-so-nice comments made to me about Maybelline and her size. Some people actually didn't believe she was a chihuahua! Believe me, she is ALL THAT and more! Just more to love :love7:

Can't wait to share some pics with y'all. Need to get some software like Photoshop or something. Nothing too technical because I'm kind of a beginner. Any recommendations? Thanks! :happy11:

I don't have photoshop. I just use kodak easy share. I also use photobucket to resize but i don't think they have a red eye fix, crop etc.

Jacqueline there are a number of free photo editors out there. Picasa is a nice one. It's through Google. There's also Irfanview and PhotoFiltre.
I would have to say that Picasa is the simplest and it has a number of effects.
If you do a Google search of free photo editors you'll find a number. So there's no need to buy expensive software. PM me if you need any info.

By the way, I was living in Atlanta before coming to Australia. Very nice city.
