Guilty Pleasure

This blog is more about me than my pups though this is my what, third? effort in trying to get myself into blogging regularly about my pack of wonderful Chihuahuas? I have just made my blog my home page so there is no more excuses of "forgetting" to blog. **crossing fingers**

So yes, my guilty pleasure is nothing other than- my Chi's! They make me happy, they're here to keep me company when nobody else is, they're literally a "crutch" when I go out in public (which I HATE doing but enjoy it more when I have a little friend with me - I consider them some what like a therapy dog in that way LOL) and most of all it's the one animal, one species, one breed that both my husband & I share the same fondness for. Considering I love animals and well, he doesn't - I feel Chi's were meant to be apart of our family and always will be.

I know those who have multiple dogs (of any breed) encounter the same mentality from people we do in thinking just how "crazy" we are for having so many dogs. I figure: of course we're crazy, but that doesn't mean we're wrong! And quite frankly I'm a bit tired of being judged in that way. After all, they're OUR dogs, they live at OUR house, we feed & vet them with OUR money. Soooo, what's the problem??

Now that I got that off my chest - the reason this is so fresh on my mind is our 5th Chi will be arriving at our house this coming Monday evening. I knew I'd like another eventually but no way were we planning on one so very soon. Our impending addition happened to be just the right color, with just the right markings, just the right sex and from just the right breeder (where we got our other 4 pups). When something is so perfect, you just can't turn away. :o)

Anyway, last evening we recieved the last installment of photographs of our newest addition, before meeting him in person. He may look a bit familiar where he has the same color/markings as our Matilda but we expect him to be a bit smaller.

Introducting....Marley! (at 7 weeks old)


  1. He is absolutely adorable! Look at those beautiful eyes, do you think they will stay blue?
    Having just got another chihuahua puppy, I agree with everything you say, they are sooo special.
    Also, I feel practically agoraphobic if I go out without them, I know just what you mean about therapy dogs.

  2. Thanks for your kind words, Lynne. It's good to have people who know where I'm coming from! :o) I'd love to think his eyes will stay blue but I'm guessing they'll be like Matila's & be golden around the edge of her iris & dark gray around the outside of her pupil. She had blue eyes as well & I think most blue eyed pups do get the golden look to them as they mature. We'll see though!

  3. OMG Heather, I can't believe you're getting another one!!! How extremely exciting!!! Marley is just the most precious little thing! I'm looking forward to seeing plenty of pictures!

    And why haven't you announced this on Club Chi? All the ladies will be dying to see him!

  4. I know Nadine! I need to do that. I think I'll go there now & post a pic or 2. ;o) Thank you btw - I can't wait to get him in front of my camera. hehe

  5. :Jumping for joy and clapping hands furiously: OMG Heather, that is so exciting!!!! I think I might be as excited as you are! I'm like giddy right now. Marley is so darn precious. I can't wait to see pictures of him when he is finally home. I am counting the hours!

  6. Thanks for sharing in my excitment Tiffany! I can't believe there is only 4 days left. I'm excited & nervous (only to have to deal with the pottying/watching constantly LOL) but I know he'll be worth it and we'll be passed that stage in no time! :oD And you know I'll be sharing pics like crazy... hehe

  7. I can't wait to see some candid shots of the little pupster. I think he looks alot like Matilda, he will mature into a spectacular dog. Looking forward to seeing more of you here in blogland, your posts are always fun to read.

  8. Oooohhh... he is too sweet! All this talk of puppies is making me want one!!!

  9. I have to agree with Sharon on this on...he is SO cute! Chihuahua's are an addiction that only fellow Chi owners can understand..."Once you own a Chihuahua; It is hard if not impossible not to have another" (or two or three or four...or five!) One day, i hope to have a house so that i can have a whole herd of Chihuahua's!
