The Chihuahua is my Mom's dog, not mine personally, but same family. Altogether we have 5 dogs, I can't see life without even one of them.
Abby was a rescue dog, she has been such a big part of my Mom's life, since I got her. My Mom is a cancer survivor (twice) and has gone through some really tough times. Her Chihuahua has provided so much love and companionship, it's given her the will to try and battle her hardships full force.
I can't say enough good about Abby, she's a great little dog.
An intelligent deaf-mute is better than an ignorant person who can speak.
I have two lc Chi's, Jazz and Vinnie. Jazz is a tri-colored female and Vinnie is a blue male. Jazz has a very dominant personality. I agree they are not rare. Jazz came from a newspaper ad and Vinnie was a petstore reject(lucky for him and me). There is a breeder in WV who mainly breeds longcoats.
