Gigi was meant to be ours. Right before Valentines day last year my wife Brenda and I went into a pet store where we liked to look at the puppies.

Our Cairn of 19 years had passed two years prior. We saw a cute fluffy little dog. I inquired on the breed. I was told a Long haired Chihuahua. We were both amazed. The pup was cute but decided to think about it.

When we got home we decided to call the store about adopting the pup. Well, the pup had just been sold.

Later in the week my son Matt and I were out and about. Brenda was out of town. Matt googled the availability of a long hair chihuahua. A pet store in the area had one! We arrived there shortly.

When we walked in we saw a little fluff ball. We held her and we both got that feeling that this was for Brenda. I set up the adoption so that Brenda could pick her up when she returned.


The lady at the store said the pup had been returned. A lady had adopted her and was gone about 20 minutes. She had returned her because she whined too much!?

We picked her up and she has been our little angel ever since. Before this we had never seen a long haired Chi, and had no desire to have chis, but now we wonder why we waited so long.

I just want to tell my story how i got my chi, well a friend told me her dog had babies. So i said that was awesome. So i told her i want to see them. So after she got off work my husband and I decided to go ot her house. So we went there and she had three puppiest left. So i saw a very tiny one i said to myself i think my cockers will hurt the little one. So she said there is one in her bedroom under her bed. So she went to get him. He is so cute he is white w brown. He looks like a chocolate chip. So i was holding him for awhile. And i sad to my friend he is laying on me and sniffy me. He likes me. So i just stand there for awhile to figure out if i want him or not. Cuz i was worried about him not liking the cockers spaniels i have. So i thought about it. I said to my husband should we take him and he said its up to me. So i said I will take him. So i took him and gave a friend money for me to buy him. And she asked me what should i call him I said chocolate chip but we call him chip or chippy or chippywawa. He loves his name. And so we brought him home. And he wasnt into the cockers. But it took time for him to get used to them. He got used to them very much and he is bestest friend to one of the cockers. They play w eachtother everyday and even before we go to bed. They sleep together at tiems. But he loves his mommy he sleeps w me under the covers in my bed. He is my best friend i love him very much. He is almost 3 years old in july 4th. We got him when he ws 4 mo. Old. He is adorable he loves to lick all the time. He is a good boy. I love my chi very much. I do anything to get another one. So actually we all love him.
