Hi everyone! I hope I am posting in the correct area. I've been having a little problem finding my way around and trying to figure out how to post. I am new to this forum. I found it because I was doing a search about Chihuahuas and came across this forum and thought it would be cool to join. I have an 18 month old male Chihuahua named Little Pogo that I love with all my heart. He is our first small dog. We have always had large dogs. When our last two dogs who we've had their whole lives died, we thought we wouldnt have any more dogs. Its so heart breaking when they die. So, for a few years we just had cats. 4 to be exact and we still them. Then Pogo came into our lives and we fell head over heals for him. He is our little baby. We take him every where we go and just love him so much. Maybe a little too much. I say this because he is sometimes a little to aggressive and doesnt think anything of biting me if he has something and I might try to take it from him, or if I might want to move him from a chair he is laying on or for something else. We have NEVER ever had a dog that would bit us. Ever! We would never have tolerated it or even a growl would not have been tolerated. So, I dont know what to do. I actually sometimes just let stay where ever he is to avoid a situation. He just bit me the other day when one of the cats vomited and I was trying to clean it up and he wanted to help. Of course I didnt want him to help, ( he wanted to eat it) so he bit the heck out both my hands. On one hand I had the biggest bruise and the other the biggest open cut. I actually feel hurt that he does this to me. I mean of course, I know he is a dog, but to bit the hand that feeds him! Not good! I dont know how to discipline him. I had heard that Chihuahuas can be nasty, is this what they mean??? Anyone have these problems with their dogs ?? Well I am looking forward to making friends with other Chihuahua people and happy to have found you guys.
