Beware of Your Doggie’s Kisses!

Kissy ChihuahuasI like to think that my mouth is clean and fresh. I’m a Chihuahua. It’s true.

But other human types may disagree. While I love kissing, I may have put my mouth on something a bit icky or in places not known to be clean.

So while your doggie may love you and enjoy kissing you, perhaps you should wash up after those kisses. Just don’t let your doggie catch you doing it.

Check out these fun articles I curated just for you.

Is Your Chihuahua Stressed? Try Rescue Remedy.

IMG_0897Chihuahuas are little creatures and we can get stressed out by the big people that surround us. Even little children can cause us anxiety. There’s yelling, screaming, running, jumping, throwing. Gosh, it’s a wonder we survive from nap to nap.

Like some little dogs, I am prone to seizures. My vet said it’s my brain mis-firing with information overload. Other causes have been ruled out via a blood test.

So every month or two I stiffen up and check out for a minute or so. My daddies are very concerned about me. Dr. Vet recommended adding 4- 6 drops of Rescue Remedy daily to my water dish to help calm me down. It seems to be working because my seizures are less frequent and shorter than they used to be.

If you have this problem see your vet and ask about Rescue Remedy. It just might help!

Eye Injuries in Your Chihuahua

Chihuahua eyes

This is not me, but still a cute Chihuahua.

I had an owie in my eye. Still do, actually. As a little Chihuahua that’s not good. Somehow I scratched it. I had a hard time keeping it open.

Eye injuries in dogs is not to be ignored. We could lose our eyesight. A scary trip to the “vet” showed a scratch that needed salve. It’s always best not to let these things go untreated. I could have lost the sight in my eye.

Of course I let the doc put the salve in my eye. But at home I fought my daddies. I refused treatment. Yet still they persisted and now my eye is getting better.

Lucy's 6th Birthday

Contemplating my birthday.

Today is my sixth birthday. I’m in my prime. I choose to spend the day lounging in my day bed. And why not.

Last night I experienced another seizure. They come when I get overstimulated, I believe. Perhaps I should spend more time sleeping and less time partying!

I do not need cake or presents for my birthday. I would be very happy with meat snacks and other assorted treats. After all, I haven’t even begun to break in all my stuffed toys.
