I hope you dont mind but I made it a sticky! I think those books are great for people to buy and read BEFORE they get a chi, or if they already have one its great to read and get additional info on!

out of those books which is the best to get?
I really liked the Chihuahuas for Dummies. It's pretty lengthy, but it covers almost anything you can imagine and the Dummy books always seem to be well researched.

Has anyone else read How to Talk to Your Dog by Jean Craighead George?

There are two versions - adult and child. I think the adult version is out of print but I'm not sure. My copy is very old. I just recently reread it and it made me remember and relearn so much about how our dogs communicate with us.

This author also wrote Julie of the Wolves, and The Other Side of the Mountain.
