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.
