CATHY , Trixxie’s picture was up for about 15 min then is not there any more. My kiddos could not see it so I posted on my timeline thinking that might help but it didn’t. THANKS. This is a great site. The pictures are all precious.

Hi Cathy.I was after some help with my chi.She is three and after one year off her being with us she stated being scared of shadows.At first she would cry and hide now she just barks.The vet put her on tablets that did nothing.now she sees shadows every where. most of the time it hers.Taking her in the car is a nightmare. I wonder if there is any body that can help me with this.

I can’t help with the being scared of shadows, however my chi is terrified of riding in a car. I asked the vet about this and he told me to give her a child’s dose of dramimane with some food. It makes her a little sleepy but not bad. It is definitely a big improvement over the way it was before.

Good idea Beverly!

This is Bella, my 3 y/o rescued chihuahua. I have had her for almost 2 years; it was love at first sight. She is one of a kind chihuahua. She loves her bling-bling dress.

I am making snuggle,pouches, can I sell them throughout u at all? They r high quality

Hello– I would like to know more — I need a snuggle pouch but I’d have to send you her measurements– she is rectangular !!!! LOL yes fat–but still a rectangle with a wide chest — LOL I haven’t been able to get anything for her but a blanket since last year and its too difficult to carry her == I am disabled – I can walk but it’s all I can do to get ME there let alone carry her to the Vet or grooming — sooo I am on a limited income but still — we can work out something == $ 10 X 3 stolll equals $30 better than a -0-
March 25, 2014 at 8:57 pm
Sure Kim, get in touch with me through email at firstname.lastname@example.org

Update on Rocky & Tinky. Rocky was released yesterday to go home from the ER Hospital. But they choose to keep him with Tinky for morale support. They are so bonded and love each other. Tinky is doing much better and was taken off fluids this morning, and seems to be doing great. If all goes well I will finally get to bring them home this afternoon.
Barbara Howard and very happy Chihuahua mom. Thank God for all of his blessings.

Hi everyone here– such beautiful furbabies and their moms== me too — I have a problem w/mine–I got her from foster care over 4 yrs ago– she was and is highly trained and the best and smartest dog I have owned- this is my first real Chi– have had mixs since I was a little girl= the problem is ? she is getting real mean natured — its only when she is asleep and I move when she’s asleep beside me or change my poition in bed– she is 18 lbs so she’s a big girl –we have her on a diet now – two weeks ago she had dental surgery and lost 17 teeth== we were able to avoid that 4 yrs ago but time matches on == she had a bad gum infection at the time– I thought the mean-ness was from her mouth hurting her — but nope she just gets so ornery — I love her to pieces — she has actually bitten me three times once on the chin — I pushed when she growled bec I couldn’t believe she would actually bite me but she did — anyway — I disciplined her and she knows better – once she gets awake and knows its me after growling and snapping she stops and licks my fingers — so does anyone have any ideas as to how to deal with her ?? part of me doesn’t want to do anything but love her and the other –well you know — when a little sweet thing like usually is bites and snarls so ?? I cn barely stand it — course now I don’t know where the behavior started or who did what before I got her — her owner died and the husband said he couldn’t keep her bec of the grand children– I know this behavior only started over a yr ago — so here I am — breaks my heart ?? any suggestions ?? I never had an old dog before- I took her bec of her age and no one wanted her bec she was old === that made me sad — I wanted her immediately —

I’m Abby. Can my chi please be chi of the hour? About three years ago, I found her wondering around the neighborhood. She was underweight, and clearly hungry. It took about three days, but my daughter and I were eventually able to catch her. She has been my constant companion ever since. I love her.,

Hi Cathy, I have heard so many stories about what to feed our chi’s we have a 2 year old at 3lbs, and a new male at 6 months old at 2 lbs, we heard that Performatrim is a better food than Royal Cainn can someone out there let me know which is best or are the about the same. I had my felmale on Royal Cainn and she liked it but kept eating her poop but then after I switched she still eats her poop but not as much now I think it was just a stage she went through now I don’t let her see me pick it up so its getting better, I also have them on moist food and mix it with the dry as per my vet suggested it. I will show you some pictures of our little joys as we love them both to bits, they are both fixed and the female(Citeria) is my baby and the male(Teddy) is my spouses. Hope you share them they are so loveable I just never knew that Chi’s were so affectionate toward their owners. Thanks Rick
April 8, 2014 at 1:19 am
OH yes — they are really affectionate– very loyal and all those great things– glad you have two– they are good company for each other– mine is old and its only her and me– she doesn’t tolerate others — she doesn’t share either — I only got her when she was 9 so that ship sailed– enjoy your fur babies !! They are both precious and beautiful ~~ I am happy for you and your spouse

I can not stop sending you posts (I’m assuming you mean through Facebook). Only you can do that and it’s very easy to do. All you need to do is go to the Facebook page and where you had “Liked” it, just click it again so it unlikes it. Here’s the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ILoveMyChihuahuaClub

I have a 2lb who just turned 2 this July5th and he is spoiled rotten and he runs me and he knows it but he won’t let me trim his nails I mean he screams bloody murder and won’t hold still and his paws are so tiny that there hard to hold on to because he screams and wiggles so much I can’t keep a hold of them and I’m afraid to squeeze them to much while he is fighting for fear I’ll crush his little bones. I’ve had someone holding him while I had a hold of his paw and trying to cut the nail without cutting it close and hurt him and he still fights way to bad. I don’t know what to do and his nails are so long and need cut badly before his dueclaws that wasn’t ever removed grow into his skin. Can anyone recommend or help with advice about this please? I was thinking of taking him to the vet to get them cut but I’m scared that they will have to give him something to relax or sleep and he is so little I don’t want to do that every time and I’m scared it will hurt him or he might not wake up or come to
August 25, 2014 at 9:37 am
I would take him to a professional groomer. They are experienced with this and they usually don’t charge much for just nails. Your vet can do it too without having to give him any meds. I know for me personally, my son has to help me with my chis’s nails. He puts her in a football hold where her head is tucked in under his arm and I go behind him and clip her nails.
August 25, 2014 at 10:25 am
Well I’ve tried this as well but you can’t keep a hold of him because he fights so hard and he is so little that you can’t hold him to tight because you will break a rib or his leg because he is only around 1and half pounds to 2 pounds and his head is so little that it fits in my hand and I can close my hand completely where my fingers are touching my palm and his paws are literally the size of my pinkies and I have small hands seriously. I only wear a size 4 ring. So I guess I’ll just have to take him to a vet because he freaks out when you just try to look at his nails, silly little chihuahua baby boy ☺

Cathy How do I post a photo of my babies so I can talk about them and share there life
August 31, 2014 at 8:38 pm
Frances, If you’d like to submit a photo for Chi of the Day, you can email it to me at email@example.com or post it on our page (in the comment box on our page, just look for the camera icon, click it and upload). Either way, because of the volume, there is a backlog so it will be about a month before it goes up live on the page.
September 4, 2014 at 3:58 pm
How do I post through you directly to get my question answered? My post isn’t being seen on here and I have a question for those who posted about coconut oil for my chihuahua.

I have a question..how often should a chihuahua be bathed? I bath mine about every 6 weeks. If I bathe her more often her skin gets dry. How often is healthy?
November 1, 2014 at 12:34 pm
I have heard some bathe theirs every two weeks.
November 1, 2014 at 2:19 pm
I bathe mine about once a month Lynette though another one of my dogs that gets kind of smelly, I bathes every 2 weeks.

Hi Cathy…..Just a quick note from all of us. We are so Happy to Be Chi for the Day. It thrilled the kids, so they got an extra treat(lol,no not spoiled at all). They both want you go know they are to be big brother and big sister….yes we are getting a baby. A friend of mines Chi had a litter of 6, unfortunately he lost 4 after about 4 or 5 days. So we are sad aboht that, but we get one of the 2 still with us, he took them to the vet for a cbeck up
March 19, 2015 at 5:42 am
Ugh….sorry don’t knkw what happened, we are going to take some pictures wben the new baby comes to live with us. Now as I was saying the vet said they were really a large litter for such a small breed. They weighted right at 2oz each, so tiny babys. It will be here in mid May when It becomes part kf our family. Not sure why the 4 died, maybe momma wasn’t giving enough milk…,could be anything. We wish you a Great Week and all Kinds of Chi Love. I am attaching a picture of all puppies before we lost the 4. Thanks for Having Such a Great Group……..Regards, Michael, Papi and Pinky…don’t have the baby a name yet…Thanks Again for All Your Help…..heres my number if you ever need it….918-378-2790
March 19, 2015 at 2:04 pm
