I have not been on the forum for a while but I wanted to thank everyone for all of you advice about getting a second chi as a friend for my first sweetie, Nacho who was a rescue and really did not trust other dogs as she had been bitten. So we purchased a male puppy and it worked her maternal instinct kicked in. That was almost 2 years ago now. I am off work after surgery. So I thought at least I could share our success story.

Thanks. Just found out recently she is a double coat long hair chihuahua. He is long hair and I love his ears.

Their coats are so beautiful and wavy. I'm hoping Ava's will be wavy and same length as your little boy 馃槉. You're girls coat is the same color as Ava's mom. Both of her parents have long wavy fur but not thick like your double coat.

Yeah I like the wavy coat too. I did not even know there was such a thing as a double coat til I asked my vet. My groomer, whose Mom was a chi breeder kept telling me she had never seen a chi with such a thick coat. Great for winter time, but she loves the AC in the summer.
No wonder.

Thanks they are so sweet. She was so tolerant and mothering when he was baby. When he got too out of hand playing and nipping, and she had enough she used to sit on him until he calmed down. When he got as tall as her, she made it clear she was alpha. It has been good for both of them. She is now tolerant of other small dogs as long as she is walking and not in a confined space.

My daughter was admiring Cerveza & Nacho & the dresses they are wearing. She'd like to know where you got them. BTW they are too cute.

Funnily enough I got hers at Petco one summer and then the next summer I found his shirt at Walmart! Not even the same brand but they look like it don't they? Just luck. They have a closet full of clothes. Just a tad spoiled. Check out mininthebox.com for best prices on chi clothes. Always stuff on sale.

Thanks for the site name she is already looking. My daughter will have storage boxes full of clothes in no time. Our previous furbaby Whitney was a toy poodle that really loved wearing clothes so Lucy my bigger chi has some things that Whitney used to wear that were a little snug & fit Lucy perfectly. Now Mia needs to catch up since she is the one that adores wearing clothes.

They are a gorgeous pair. I just love long coats. My little man Prince has a double coat. He is shedding a lot right now as he does every summer. He grows so much fur in the winter it's amazing.

Oh so cool to meet someone else with a double coat chi. She is shedding too. My other regular long hair chi hardly sheds at all. Do you find that too? Yours are gorgeous. Love the tri color chis.
