Welcome, you have come to the right place to find out everything you could ever wish to know about Chihuahuas. I have learnt so much in the 6 months I have been on this site and I know my dogs are better off for it.

Firstly on the weepy eyes thing - A vet can rule out an infection but it is usually poor diet that gives weepy eyes. When my puppy's were on the crappy food the breeder had them on their eyes ran constantly. Now they are on a mix of raw meat and ZiwiPeak and they seldom get runny eyes, except when they dive headfirst into piles of cut grass at the park. There is a whole section her on nutrition that gives heaps of information and should help you make an informed decision on what to feed Lola on whatever your budget may be.

On her weight - if you can feel spine and ribs but not see them she is probably close to ideal weight. If you could post another pic of her in profile without her coat on we could probably tell you. Lots of people think a bit overweight is normal but Chi's (especially the tiny ones) have little joints that can't take the strain of extra weight. I'm currently trying to get 1/2 a pound off my almost 5 lb Chi because he is very fine boned and it's not healthy for him. Again check the nutrition section of the site to help you out.
