April 18, 2009 at 10:33 pm (Cats, Chico, Nate)

Well, Nate decided he did NOT want a rat terrier like his dad.  He’s been talking about getting a chihuahua. I didn’t find a chihuahua, but I did find a Chih-Weenie. That is a chihuahua/dachsund mix, who we named CHICO!


As you can see, he is rather small.  His mother is a 3 lb. chihuahua and his father is a 9 lb. dachsund. He’s so small, he can walk under my cat’s bellies. I expected Macy and Luna to be the worst with him and they ended up being the best. It is rotten ass little man Jirachi who is the MOST jealous. Of course, he’s not the BABY of the family anymore.

He’s very sweet, hasn’t chewed anything up yet (of course, he has a VERY small mouth), and he was pretty well paper-trained when we got him, but he’s doing very, very well with that. Nate has taken over a lot of responsibility with him and they are fast friends.

Jeff did call and that’s another post in itself.  It was ugly, but I expected it to be. But, now its over, at least that part of it. We’ll see what tomorrow holds. For now, we’re enjoying the newest addition to our family.

    He’s so cute! and I think a mix will be better in the long run than a full breed. Two of my granddaughters have chihuahuas, only one turned out to be a mix and is 5-6 pounds heavier than the other one. They are nice pets. Give the kitty some extra love for a while.

    OMG what a cute puppy. I wish you good times with your newest family member. I have never been a fan of little dogs – mine have all been massive, but I think I could fall in love with that little critter.
