I'm new to this site, having recently discovered it when we got our Chi Pepper. My pup is 3.5 months old. My husband and I got him after a sad moment in our lives. Just recently in June I miscarried what would have been our first child. I was depressed and would not leave the house. I needed a companion and what would be better than a dog. It took some convincing to get my husband to agree to the idea. But at last he came around and we purchased our little treasure. He has helped me with my depression, although I still get sad. He is affectionate, playfull, energetic, and everything I would want my dog to be. I hope to meet some people who will help me with any questions I may have on chi's.
