Ok, here are the three that will be coming to live with us in October. Ahhh...I know i'm a little crazy for taking three on at once but I had two at once before and it was absolutely wonderful!

Ok so this is the little boy Kitoko (Kit). He was born June 28 :) This picture was taken today at one month old!




Next is Cinnamon Bun (Bunny), born July 13, these pictures are from yesterday at 2 weeks 1 day.







And just born this morning, July 29!! Raven Star (Raven), just a couple of hours old.

Thanks everyone, I will need some tips and hints from everyone. I think I might do a playpen setup. Should I get 3 seperate playpens? How do you have the inside of the playpen set up? Any other suggestions? I want to make this as smooth as possible, I mean I know it's going to be crazy, but anything to help.

They are beautiful. Bunny is a great color, but they are all cute as can be, You are going to have your hands full. I think I'd keep them all together in the same play pen, but maybe give them their own crates, as they get older so they can have their own space if they want to be alone or rest. Good luck, can't wait to see them grow.

I am so jealous! I wish I could get three all at the same time! I would never be able to afford all of the puppy shots all at one time though. Not to mention getting them fixed.
You are going to have so much fun watching them all grow and get along. Have Fun!

P.S. I just set up a play pen for my puppy, Lilly. Instead of buying a dog playpen for $100 I made mine out of shelving grids. Its really cool because you can change the size when ever you want. I got mine because I am going camping and I want her to be able to be out but be safe. I first learned about this from a guinea pig website and decided to try it out with my puppy. Her is the link to get an idea of what I am talking about. Guinea Pig Cages, Your Cavy At Home

Also, I lined my with first a towel then I put fleece over it to make it nice and cozy:)
Good luck!

I would love to see a picture of your set up.

It will be expensive for all their shots and testing. I won't be getting them fixed as I am going to breed (no slams please) and being mentored by Midwest Chihuahuas. They have to pass all testing before they will be bred, and if not then they will be fixed and be non-breeding pets. It all cost a lot of money but we are able to do it.

I'm just so excited to bring them home!

Here is the setup:)




This is what my grids came in and what they are really used for:)

Just a cute pic of Lily


I am so excited for you:) Lily loves her make shift playpen. I wasn't sure if she would whine or not and she hasn't yet.

Also, you can make the sides higher I just didn't for her because she can't jump over it. For sure though when you first get yours, I can't imagine them being able to jump over.
Hope this helps:)

Seriously? What are you thinking?! Why must you have three at once and not just be happy with one puppy? One puppy can command round the clock attention for months and months, all yours will only be getting a third of the intensive attention they need. Get one and train and socialise it fully before you even considder adding another one. There are countless problems associated with getting two pups from the same litter- let alone three. I don't know what responsible seller would even sell you three pups at once??! You need to not be selfish- would getting three puppies at once actually be of any benefit to them or just be fun for you?

I also noticed that you are getting them to breed. You should not just get any three dogs to breed for a quick buck, you should only breed dogs that are yto the breed standard and have optimum health that will better the Chihuahua breed gene pool. One of the pups picutred is a Merle. The Kennel clubs in many countries arround the world have banned Merles for a reason. They have done alot of research and decided no longer to register them as they carry genetic defects, such as eye and ear problems, the worst of wich being of deafness and blindness. This affects not only the homozygous merle coding but also the heterozygous merle coding - i.e. ALL MERLES ARE PRONE and are a detriment to the breed.
