Meet Chloe

I've been meaning to post about Chloe and just haven't gotten around to it. So, here's Chloe...!

We have had our Chihuahua, Pandy, for almost 5 years now. (Her birthday is on the 12th!) I've always been a cat person, and Pandy was the first indoor dog I've ever had. (And, I love her dearly.) Anyway, I recently decided we should have a second dog in our family. My husband and Alex have been ready for a long time.  

A few weeks ago, we saw signs of a "found" Chihuahua in our neighborhood. After about a week, I gave them a call and asked if they were planning on keeping her if they didn't find an owner. They said "no" so I told them to call me back after the sign had been up 2 weeks. Well, we got the call! We went over that evening and met this sweet little Chihuahua (or Chihuhua mix). Pandy is only 5.5 pounds and this Chihuahua is 10.5 pounds - a big difference! We've had mixed ideas about whether she is a pure Chihuahua or a mix. Anyway, Alex instantly fell in love with her and they are already quite a pair. Pandy was supposed to be Alex's dog, but she preferred to follow me around. Chloe, on the other hand, acts like she is Alex's shadow. Here they are playing on their favorite new play place - the waterfall!

This last photo doesn't include Chloe, but I was enjoying playing with the color highlight function of my camera. Anyway, we took Chloe to the vet and found out she wasn't spayed. So, she got spayed yesterday and is doing well now. Also, she started puppy training classes 2 weeks ago! Oh... that was a surprise, too. We thought she was a full grown dog, but the vet told us they thought she was about 10 months old. We are really enjoying our new puppy... now if we could just finish housebreaking her!

Awww she looks so sweet. Enjoy your new "puppy" She sure is a big puppy! LoL! Alex sure does look very happy to have her. I am sure that Chloe already fallen in love with her new family. Good luck with the training.

What a cutie! I think she was meant to be yours. :)

I hate to say it, but I'm getting a puppy itch, too.
Chloe is beyond cute. One thing I love about chihuahuas is that they are so easy to bathe. Grooming for my dog requires a two hour block of time.
:-( I actually wrote 'dogs' first, and then I had to correct it. I'm still missing Murphy.

Congrats on the new dog. The more the merrier I say. We have three dogs and two cats. They just make life more fun.
