I have a long hair. BUT he licks his front legs for about 10 minuted at a time during the day. Is this normal? Buddy is very important to me.

    I have a little dog, not a chihuahua but, he had allergies to chicken and licking can be one thing they do if they have an allergy. I hope this helps in some little way.

    I have a long hair. He is solid white with dark brown eyes. He is so frisky. When I bought him I knew the was the one for us. He was very hyper and loved attention. I named him spunky, he is 2 years old now. I raised him from a small puppy. He is very protective of me. He loves to be outdoors and run around with my cat. Him and my cat are best pals. They never fight.

I've had a long haired chihuahua for five years, and she's an absolutely great companion. We've traveled everywhere together and she's always been happy and healthy. But she can't stand other dogs either, no matter how friendly they are. The best thing I've found for that is to have a high place that she can get away to and they can't reach her. Usually she just runs up to the back of the couch if she needs a break from the sniffing and grooming. Though your dog will probably get used to dogs a bit easier since they'll be raised together, it probably would help if he could be a little higher up once in a while.

My darlin Brusier has been the love of my life 4 years now and I would recommend one to any lonely person. He is loyal and makes me smile everyday. I truely believe he would die if something happened to me. I know this because when I started dialysis I had to leave him with a friend every other day, and when I got back he did flips. As my time approched for a transplant he seem to notice me getting ready a week before leaving town and got in my suitcase. I suggest to anyone to get this type a dog, You will NEVER be sorry!

To Christie Mole,
Although it's tragic to read, your story is beautiful and moved me to tears. I too have a chi baby, and although you sound as though you have a lovely heart and all the best intentions, Im afraid you can never replace your friends chi baby. I know it's bad to see someone you care about grieve so much, but it is all you can do for your friend at the moment. I wouldn't know what I would do if something like that happened to my baby. My sympathies and all the best to you and your friend. Give her time to mourn her loss. She will be ok, because she has known chi love, and chi love is a magical thing;)

I have a long haired Chihuahua that I actually just got yesterday. He is extremely sweet and very cute. He is 3 months old and even though I just got him, I am madly in love with him already. Now I also have a Cocker Spaniel, and when he was introduced to my Cocker he acted a little scared. Is this common for a Chihuahua because every time the Cocker came anywhere near him he would run.

I have a long haired chihuahua that looks just like the one on this page. He is the best dog I have ever had. He doesn't bark at just anything. He is VERY protective. I can't do anything without him. He has seizures from low sugar but the vet said that was common in these breeds of dogs to just give him 1/4 tsp. honey a day. I would put his pic here but I don't know how. EDITORS NOTE: Pictures can be uploaded in the gallery!
