Why I love my dog
I am a mother of three teenage children, my oldest is going off to college, my middle is a junior in high school, and my youngest a freshmen in high school. I had recently been feeling lonely. My kids didn't seem to need me anymore, or I had suddenly grown boring and stupid as my children didn't want to be around. I really just needed to take care of something. I had decided I needed a pet, a companion, a best friend. So I set about looking on the internet for information on different breeds of dogs. I knew I did not want a high maintenance breed, or a large breed. I wanted something small, one that would sit on my lap and be happy, one I didn't have to take to the groomers constantly. So I found the perfect breed for me, a chihuahua, yes, that little yippy yappy breed. Ok yeah she might be a little yippy yappy, But they are a very sweet breed. They are mostly loyal to one person, I am not saying that they will not allow other to people to be around, but they prefer ones persons company over anything. They are a bit of a hyper dog, but walking and excerise take care of that.
She doesn't required alot of maintenace. I take her to the groomer about twice or once a month for a nail clipping and shampoo, but other than that she pretty much doesn't need alot.
I love how sweet this dog is! She is just so darnn cute! That face, so sad little puppy eyes, it's almost too much. I love when I decide to sleep in that she licks my leg when its time to get up, and if I should roll over she gives a little sigh and lays right back down, only to start this process over again in 15 minutes. It's like having an alarm clock with a little licking sleep timer. I love how she can't quite bite hard enough to squeek her hot dog toy, so she jumps on it. I love how when I play fight with my son, she will protect me, but when we are done with our play fight she will go to my son and lick his cheek, as if she was saying " I'm sorry I bit you, but I had to protect my mommy." I love how after she gets a bath she runs through the house at mach speed, don't let them short legs fool you, they are fast. I love how excited she is to see me, even if I've only been gone 5 minutes. I love how she nudges me with her nose when she wants my attention. I love how she is smart enough to unzip my purse and get my gum out, I hate picking up pieces of foil all over my living room. I love how when we play she barely bites, like it would break her heart to hurt me. I love how she barks with her whole body. This list could be never ending, so I'll end with this, I love my dog!
