I would love to see photos of the show dog chihuahuas. I always read the desired traits, but I’d like pictures too. I admire your true grown up attitude about your temporary hair loss and the wig. I had an awful case of Covid last May and my pretty hair has been “letting go” for 3 or 4 months now as I learned that this can be yet another side effect of the Heavy cases. I hope my loss is temporary, but if not? I’ll have to “get over myself” Hang in there, Cathy. And may your recovery be one of the best in history 😁🤸🏾‍♂️🐶

Thanks Jane. I hope your hair loss is temporary too. You may want to look into toppers. They attach to your existing hair so it looks pretty natural if you are able to match your hair color.

My 13 year old chi was diagnosed with CHF but was told if I make sure to take all his meds and eat a very healthy diet and exercise he should live many more years, so how the best way to care for him, I can’t one him he’s my baby.... I’ll do whatever it takes, please help me with the best care ever, thank You

Yes your vet is right. Many dogs live for years after their CHF diagnosis. I'm not sure I can give you any other advice other than what your vet already gave you but we do have a post that may help you here:

My heart aches for Pinky’s mom. I know the pain she is feeling as she watches her baby decline. Such a beautiful little angel. She is blessed to have had so many years with this tiny girl, but letting go is the hardest thing she will ever have to do. (Didn’t see anyplace to post this but here with this article).

Hi Cathy

My Deerhead Chi Chanel is 6 months old.

I am scared for my baby, she is so picky foodwise, she won't eat dog biscuits/kibble. She only eats chicken.

Thank you very much for any help you can offer.

Kind regards
