Hi my name is Valerie and I am from Southern Ontario Canada. I have two Chihuahuas. One fawn colored and  black and tan.

Darla who is my black and tan. I felt was lonely after I first got her at 10 months old so I found a breeder in Niagara Falls and took her with me to find a friend.

When I contacted the lady I told her that I was not interested in having a male dog. She thought that was kind of strange. 

When I got there she showed me 7 female Chis and she threw in a male  but at the time I did not know that.

Well what do you know, my Darla took to that male and played with only him for 45 minutes.

When I told her it was time to go she brought him over to me he jumped up on my lap. He put his paws on my chest and then he reached forward like he was some movie star actor and gave me the most sweetest gentle kiss on my nose that I’ve ever had in my life. How could I not bring him home?

Since then he has brought so much joy to my life.

He’s had some medical issues and at the time I thought was going to cost me a fortune but I would have spent every last penny I had to keep him with me. Unless of course he was going to be in pain or suffering then I could never do it but I would have missed him dearly.

My Darla and Chico are very best friends and they’re my very best friends I will always have a Chihuahua from now on.

Yeah Chis have a mind of their own. I got my first one when I was 10. When I got married my baby had past away 2 years before. So we found some puppies in the news paper. we went to look at them right off we new it was a puppy mill. We were not going to get one there but then I seen a young momma with 2 babies. One was 2 1/2 pounds and a little chocolate and white was only 3/4 of a pound and his brother was using him as a chew toy and wouldn't let him eat needless I bought him I thought he would die if I didn't. We took him home. I thought I got my new baby. when we got home he got in my husbands lap and stayed. so he was my husbands chi till he died 7 years ago. now we have 2 chis and 2 chi mix

It's funny how they choose their human. My first chi Kilo was supposed to be my son's but she chose me as her person.

My daughter rescues hybrid chis. She has a Pom chi and a Chorkie. I had a lot of prejudices about chis. They always seemed nervous and yippee. I was so foolish. Our boys are sweet, snuggly and loving. I adore my two grand dogs!

I thought the same thing before I got my first chihuahua. Now I have a chorkie, a long haired chi and a yorkie and all 3 are the sweetest, funniest and most adorable little dogs.

This is a beautiful story and one that touches my heart. I have had 9 Chis at one time, not planned, and would not have traded anything for any of them. They are a very loveable breed and will do anything to please their human. Love my fur babies. Thanks for sharing your love for Chihuahua's with us. Sandra
