I'm new here, and in fact I'm new to owning a chihuahua. I have wanted one for a very long time, and I finally was able to adopt/purchase a long-haired puppy from a local farm. She is 8 weeks old right now, and she is the most adorable puppy that I have ever seen in my life. I love her to death. Her name is Elvira (we got her in October, and she has a song from the 70's about her. LOL) My husband did not want a small dog or a female dog, but I just brought her home anyway and now he loves her as much as I do. Unfortunately I got a job interview the day after I brought her home, and now I have started working. 15 months of unemployment, and I have to get a job right after I get my new puppy! UGH! Luckily my teenage boys and my friend are puppy sitting her when I can't be there. I will post lots of pics soon.
