Ivy Blue. My tiny 1.9kilo Grey Chihuahua. (Of course she matches my house.)I have always wanted a chihuahua for as long as I can remember, we have had dogs in the family but they have been big dogs that need a lot of waking and attention. I had moved into my own home and decided straight away a chihuahua was what I needed, it took me a while to find the right breeder and we ended up traveling around 2 hours to see her. After a long visit and lots of questions we finally brought tiny Ivy home.
Here are a few things we have learnt over the last two years of owning such a small dog.
1. Tiny dog means tiny cuddles- and lots of them at that!
2. They sleep so much! Ivy slept almost all day and night for weeks. She loved napping on her daddy –
3. They are fearless, big dogs are no bother-
4.They have mood swings just like humans- resting bitch face on point!
5. They are very protective –
6. They make the best friends-
7. They love playing and making friends, however don’t get the hint when someone doesn’t want to play-
8. They love your baby before they even meet them ❤️ <<<<<
y don't need much walking and being carried is no problem –<<<<<
ey have the best sleeping positions – <<<<<
eds lots of attention even more so since Mae was born, don't get me wrong it's hard having a needy dog and needy baby! Some days Ivy will refuse to go out in the mornings because it's so cold, before you know it it's 10am the baby is finally sleeping and you find little messes upstairs where the dog decided the house is a warmer toilet then the garden.
Think very carefully before owning any dog, chihuahuas are hard to train and develop separation anxiety if alone. They say two are easier to handle then one on its own So of course this year hopefully Ivy will have a brother to play with (If I get my own way).
This is the mouse as we speak, cuddled up away from the cold.
