In November we added Rosie to our family (husband, 2 girls aged 2 & 4 and Scooch the 1 year old cat)
I had an extremely hard time trying to find a chihuahua in our area (Ottawa, ON, Canada). I thankfully found a wonderful person in Mississauga (4 hours away) who was looking for a home for Rosie.
The girls and I decided to take a road trip to my sisters (lives in that area). Originally we had thought we would go and meet Rosie, then think about it for a couple of days while visiting my sister and then pick her up on the way home.
But after the girls and I saw her - there was no way we were going to leave her! It was love at first sight!
