I'm so happy! My mom's finally getting us a dog! We found a chocolate long hair chihuahua female, but I don't know very much about the breed. Does anyone have any info? I'd much appreciate!

Thanks guys! All the sites helped and I just got some happy news this morning! "Nestle" is coming home Friday! Yea! My mom knows a breeder and decided she just had to have her (even though I'm supposed to take her with me when I move out again). She's so cute, chocolate colored and the little puppy growl. Awwww... Thanks again!

If I had a chi it would be a chocolate. Does she have green eyes. They are so cute. When I went to deal with the shelter after my poo's spaying and everything there was a gal coming out with a green eye choc long hair. I said you better not be bringing her in there. She had just got her spayed and was taking her home. Lucky lady.

I think Nestle's eyes are going to turn gold. I had a beagle that was a multi once with gold eyes and I think they were just the prettiest. Green eys?! That had to be awesome. I've never seen green eyes on a dog before. We're going to go shopping to get little puppy toys today (she'll be spoiled rotten just like my other animals. My cat has a full toy box just his own). I can't wait for her to come home!

I think Nestle is going to nab your kitties toys. Wanna bet. Gold eyes are so cool too. I like when an animals eyes blend with its coat. When you get the chance post a picture.

I think there's two of Sage's toys that she might go after, a little fish that squeaks and a little Nerf ball that he's clawed the heck out of, the rest might be too big for her! Do dogs like catnip? I think she can take the Nerf ball, he doesn't like it since he doesn't have claws anymore, but I'll have to watch if she goes after that mouse (he might start mistaking her for it !) because that's one of his favs and I don't know how possessive he is with his toys. I can't wait for her to come home and to get my boyfriend to let me use his computer so I can put up pics!

I don't know if dogs like catnip. But he could very well tear the toy up and throw it all over. What out that the toys are not too small or he could choke on them. Dogs sometimes try to eat the oddest things. Yes, pictures, pictures.

Nestle got her own toys today (even though she's not here until tomorrow morning!). We have a pet store nearby that sells toys specially made for toy dogs and she got every one they had except one! She's going to be a very spoiled pup! I can't wait for tomorrow!

Well, guys, Nestle's home! So happy! She's already learning to play with her "brother", my cat Sage. I was honestly worried about him because he's a little psychotic, but they're getting along great. Sage follows her around the house or vice versa. He's a little jealous of her right now because she's in my lap, but he's not acting out like he normally does. I didn't realize just how tiny she was! She's five weeks yesterday and even the special mini toys are big for her! LOL! Everybody on my block saw her this morning and they all agree that she's "just the cutest".

I think kitty Sage possibly realizes she's a baby. They are going to be such good friends. I can already see it. Yes, 5 weeks is young, usually for tiny dogs its more like 12 weeks that would be ideal. But just make sure she's getting plenty of the right nutrients and all should be well. Take pictures.

I think something happened with the mother so that she stopped giving milk and that's why she's with us so early. She's been so funny today! The whole neighborhood had to come out and see her and everyone loved her even though she slept through most of it. We got back inside and she and Sage played (more like she chased Sage until he gave her the stare down which caused her to run into her kennel!). It might be a couple weeks before I can put up pics but I'll work on it. She's a definte must see!

Crazychick, you must remember that nestle must be kept away from all other dogs until she gets all of her shots. Its ok if she is in your yard, but don't let her roam around anyplace that any other dog has been. Without their shots they can pick up all sorts of illnesses, kennel cough (bortadell) parvo, distemper, lots of ugly things. Your cute little pup can die from these things so make sure she has gotten all of her shots before she is allowed to be around other dogs. It is all for her well bing and to keep her healthy. I am looking forward to seeing her. I already have a visual of her in my head. I think she is my perfect choc. chi put. Lucky you. Take care of her.

I think she's got a vet appt. the week after next for shots (My mum knows for sure), but I'm wondering about worming since she's so small. Is it still possible or would it make her sick? I'd hate to lose her, too. She's definitely precious! What illnesses would she be able to catch from the cat? There's three dogs on my block that I know of, two dachsies and a golden retriever, and I wouldn't let her near any of them anyway. The dachsies almost ripped my beagle's stomach out in a fight when we had her and the retriever is strange towards people, acts like he wants to attack you and then expects you to pet, so I'm keeping her far away! I can't wait for the vet to see her! He doesn't really like our other animals because the horses are pretty high strung and the cat, well, he's a little psychotic sometimes. She'll be a breeze for him!

I would keep her held in your arms while walking in any area that any other dog may have even walked thru. The animal does not have to be physically there to casue health problems. A cat of dog can get tapeworm from ingesting a flea. So when the vet says its ok to put on a topical flea product you should do it. My sisters can had a flea or two and ingested one and ended up with tapeworm Yuck. To be safe keep them away. Your cat is fine as long as you know she's had all her medical stuff taken care of.
