I was just wondering about taking our pups to other contries. I will have to look into that and see if there is a quarantine time.
I totally forgot Amie is in Turkey right now.
Clare, gosh I forgot that I knew you before you got Ozzie...I hardly go to that other site anymore...mostly just this one and yours. I forget if I even had Kylie yet or if I got her after we started talking...I know for sure Ginger wasnt in the picture...oh wait...I remember I was getting some not-so-nice comments for buying Ginger and you stuck up for me :D. That was on that other site...lol.

Yep, they never really took into consideration that I had two chihuahua's already, both under a year and that I had experience with toy breeds for years now. Oh well...
Lets see, I got Kylie right before Christmas...right around my birthday so back last November. Yes, I remember because I had just started working when I got her so it was the first week of November. I have this one picture of her last Christmas a week after she had her cast removed.
Looks like Kylie is in for another long recovery. She wont use her leg again, and it really isnt bending a lot. Good news is that her hip is just fine and her knee, though still very very stiff, does have some bend to it. I might have to take her to a specialist if I want her leg back at 100%...but that is way down the road (unless I get a nice doc who will do it for free :wink: ) but I dont see that happening.
Can you believe that Tequila will be one year old the 27th?! I totally forgot her birthday is this month. I will have to think of something to buy her...a nice treat. Any suggestions? I hear Frosty Paws are a nice treat for dogs.
Anyway, I have to run, I have to get Tequila to obedience class. Hopefully this time there wont be a tornado (yes, last week right before I left we had a tornado hit just 4 miles south of me...suppose to get storms tonight too but not as bad)
Talk to ya later!

how do you find obedience ive been thinking about taking ozzy but he is aggressive to strangers and other dogs I wouldnt want him attacking the instructor :(
Since we are having the same problem, if you get any good tips I would like to hear them. Kemo would never go for it, and his attention span is not so good!

I think its the best way to train a dog and, at the same time, socialize them with both people and other dogs.
Since Ozzie is older now he will probably have to go into a basic obedience class instead of puppy kindergarten. Puppy classes are designed to socailize more then teach obedience.
Tequila is in basic obedience now. In July she will be in agility. She is doing so well...I am so proud of her. She use to be totally agressive to other dogs but now she is much better. I can even take her outside and if another dog walks by her she wont bark or growl.
I would strongly recommend obedience classes for any dog who is having troubles both with obedience and with socialization. Look around first and ask a lot of questions. I find that clicker training works better with Chihuahuas and other high strung, easily stressed dogs. A lot of classes will use a pinch collar as a form of training and I believe that its just a tad too harsh for such a tiny dog. Check out trainers who use clicker training and ask if you can sit in for a class to decide if your dog will do well in it. That is how I found Tammy (tequila's trainer) She is so nice and uses very humane ways of training...no chokers or pinch collars. That is where I got the Gentle Leader from and let me just say it worked wonders for Tequila and its a pain-free training tool!
If you want to know more just message me and I will be happy to send more information. I even have a couple great pages about clicker training.
Okay, I am done...lol. Like I said message me if you want to know more.

PS - I have to brag just a little :wink: Tequila was the best dog in class today! She was given a special treat at the end for doing everything correctly and on time! Yay Tequila!!! I am so proud hehe :D

I'm kinda slow in responding lately (busy and lazy) :tongue: I love this new thread and Wow, we have a group of pretty faces in here!

Ozi-ChiChi's, I love your wedding pic! You look so beautiful in it.
And I also love Kylie's Christmas pic. I tried to take one for Mocha last year next to the Christmas plant, but all she did was kept sniffing the plant instead of co-operating w/ me and smile for the camera.

I don't have a picture of mine saved in this computer, let me upload one when I get home.

Well biologically we are not identicle as we came from seperate eggs, but we are alike in everything we do, even as far as dress style etc. Our close friends can tell us apart but even our mum and dad get us confused LOL it is very funny :lol:

Iam slightly taller than Julie by a couple of cm's and i have always been a little thinner than julie (because she stole all the food in the womb :lol: ) :lol:
