    I love big solid Chihuahuas. We had one growing up. She was solid and older style in build. Great little dog, but cranky when she got to 14, but she was still dads girl. She was a great pet and her brother lived until 15/16.

    I know of some Chihuahuas (they are all gone now), but were from ages 21 to 26.

    So they can live to a great old age and are very loving and caring dogs.

    all domestic animals (dogs, cats etc.) will be either bred to breed regulations (and registered as such) or available from shelters.

    no pet shops, backyard breeders, everything legitimate.
    i have nothing against pure breds and those people who breed for the right reasons should be compensated for the time and money that goes into it.

    but compulsory sterilisation PRIOR to sale and registration with local councils should be mandatory.
    not just for the abandoned animals but for our wildlife.
    Not all registered breeders do the right thing by the breed though. We got 2 dogs from the same kennel. Owner of the kennel was a registered breeder, all dogs papered. Both dogs came to us with heart worm and severe medical problems with knees.

    unfortunately so - but good registered breeders should have reputation, allow independant veterinary checks and access so you can see the parents.
    hope your dogs are okay now

    Agree, good registered breeders provide vet records, all Certs for required testing on parents, allow you to view the parents, allow vet checks, a good reputation and offer you a support network for any future questions after you get your pup home.

    Sadly it's not always the case.

    They are AWESOME little dogs, full of personality. Here is my little Snick ~ she performs with me on stage and, coming 5 years before bub, is perfectly mannered in (alsmost) every way (unlike the toddler boy!). I put over a year of very solid training into her. She has 400 plus commands and the measured IQ of a 3-3.5yo child, and is so blessedly patient with the bub.

    Love her to bits. Plus she's small enough to be able to fit in the bed with me, bubs, and DP. And to be smuggled onto Pub Trans in a bag if need be (she eagerly hops into the bag). Chihuahuas are magnificent micro pets, well worth the training time and effort.

    This is a photo of Lily, my mum's Papillon, taken when she was quite a bit younger. She's 14 now.

    (Above..) What a cutie, Funchu! A papillion, by the look her colouring and those those ears. Another lovely little breed of dog. I hope she keeps you company for many years to come.

    Oh, duh. I just realised you even SAY she's a Papillion!

    lol, that's okay, I sometimes miss things in these posts too (there's so many of them!)

    Lily's 14, and lives with my mum interstate. She also has my dog Cherry (a maltese x cavalier) who is 15. I hope they stay with her for at least a few more years (and hopefully she'll have a grandchild or 2 by then!). I'm an only child, so the dogs are mum's babies now!
