Carole Paulson Has been a free-lance writer, columnist, and published book author since 1981. She now resides in Oregon and is completely submerged by a pack of demanding show Chihuahuas. Show chihuahuas are the same as your standard purse/couch chihuahua except with even more attitude. Although I know many other subjects. they insist I write about them, life with them, and the shows they attend.
