Our Family Dog (Cocker Spaniel and Chihuahua mix)
Ever wonder what a mix between a cocker spaniel and a chihuahua looks like? Well this is it, her name is Mushu (moo-shoo). Yes like Mushu pork hahaha! But more like Mushu the dragon character from the Disney movie Mulan, which is where my daughter chose the name from. We joke around that our next dog will have to be Master Shifu, from Kung Fu Panda lol!
Our first choice of dogs if we were ever gonna have one was a lab. A good sized nice lookin dog. Though, how could we resist the cuteness of this one? Mushu's a small dog, but she's no chihuahua. More like a smaller version of a cocker spaniel. Did I mention she was probably a crack baby? (lol!) As a puppy this gal generated so much energy, if could bottle and sell it, I'd be a millionaire! Which made her a perfect matched playmate for my daughter, Janessa. She used to jump up at me like crazy every single time I'd step out in the backyard. To the point to where I almost couldn't enjoy her due to being so caught up with constantly trying to get her to quit jumping up on my legs. Surprisingly, after learning a tip from an episode of The Dog Whisperer, that annoyance soon stopped.
Otherwise, she is the best dog ever! A little rough around the edges, because we keep her outside. (I just can't see having animals in the house) but great none the less. I've yet to meet any other dogs the same mix as her, for us she is truly unique.
