I have mentioned on some other threads how I was getting a chihuahua puppy this weekend and even posted her picture because I couldn't decide on a name. Anyways, we got her, she is soooo cute, but at the vet today they said she has a heart mumur and if she doesn't get surgery she will more than likely die before the age of 1, so we have decided to return her to the breeder. It absolutely broke my heart because we can't afford it, (I'm in graduate school right now) and Ralphie has a serious condition with his liver that requires daily medication along with routine tests, etc. Anyways, in the short amount of time Ralphie has really got attached to her. He follows her around and whines when they are separated. I may be overreacting, but I am concerned he may get depressed and may stop eating or something. My husband and I have come to terms that it wasn't meant to be, but I am so worried about my little boy. Have any of you ever had this situation, and if so how did your chi cope with the separation?
