this may sound a little silly if it aint true but i have been told by a few people that chihuahuas can catch our colds is that true?? the reason why im asking is because im not very well and ive got a cold ect ect and im hoping that she cant catch it.

I don't believe dogs share the same colds as humans, but I remember hearing cats do.

Not sure how much of either is true, but what i've been told.

No, our chis don't catch our colds. Go ahead and cuddle with your chis when you're sick. They are so comforting to us when we're sick in bed. :)

While they can't catch your cold persay, they can get sore throats & strep throats from us, we see it all the time, especially when people & dogs keep passing it back and forth from each other. I've caught sore throats several times from Zoey.

That's interesting! I didn't know that.
