Letters From happy new owners
Sorry it has taken so long to send you pics of my lil' man, but AGAIN our internet cable was knocked down by a truck and they are just now repairing it :) Anyway, Watson is growing bigger and bigger everyday. His last visit to the vet, which was Saturday, he weighed in at 2.4 lbs! He seems to enjoy it here and we love him so much...he is spoiled ROTTEN :) He so badly wants to play with the older dog (14 yrs old) and cat, but sadly they want nothing to do with him. I think they are jealous of his unmeasurable energy! Nonetheless, he enjoys running, romping and chasing insects in the backyard :) We are still working on the potty training, but making progress...slowly but surely...I guess that's about it for now, but I'll keep you updated. Thank you so much for my little bundle of joy!
Thanks again for my friend Maggie,
Just wanted to let you know that Max is doing GREAT! He's the sweetest puppy ever and I love him! He's still not quite potty trained, but we're getting there.Everyone who's met him has fallen in love...he's SOOO good with people-adults and children. He hasn't been around too many other dogs, but is always very interested when he comes across one.We're going to get him neutered later this month. His shots are all up to date and the vet thinks he's precious!Thanks, again, for a wonderful pet. He's the best! Robin
Oh, your new pups are cuties, too...not as cute as Max, of course! "-)
As promised I am sending you some pictures of Lola. I can't tell you enough how much of a joy she has brought to my life. I just love her so much and she is SO spoiled its not even funny!Hope things are going well with you. I saw where you have more puppies born. They are gorgeous!Talk to you later!
Well, Miss Sassy is doing really well. She has really made herself at home. The other pups are beginning to warm up to her and play with her. They also put her in her place when they have had enough. She runs at them and tries to jump up on their backs. She already knows her name very well. And, tonight, they are all on the sofa, and I started encouraging them to sing. You should have heard. Sunny, Shadow, and, yes, even Sassy, were all howling to the top of their lungs. My neighbors must have thought I was killing them. Sunny tries really hard, but he can't carry a tune. Shadow does better and little Sassy does great. She is a smart little thing also. She is learning really fast about commands such as inside, outside, come. She is housebreaking faster than any of the others. She has taken a special liking to Sunny and he seems to enjoy it. It is so amazing to see how they get to know each other and interact. Anyway, just had to let you know all this stuff. I will send some pics as soon as I can find my camera. Talk to you later.
I just wanted to let you know that we had the first vet visit on Tuesday, and today we ordered the NuVet and sent the CKC papers. My dad insists on calling her "Pickle" because she is so little, and she seems to respond to it, lol, so we changed her name to that. I have some videos and pictures I am putting together of her and I can send them to you when I am finnished if you would like. So far she is doing extremely well, she eats, sleeps and plays all day, she especially like to take naps with me on the couch. I originally was going to be the only person caring for her and now my parents steal her from me every chance they get because they like her so much! Everyone loves her, she is well behaved and is doing well with her house breaking. I've taken her on a few trips out and she is very well behaved in the car and my purse and although she gets nervous at first, she enjoys meeting new people and they sure seem to like meeting her! Her only problem when we first got her was seperation anxiety but she's doing better everyday, especially with her crate. My friend liked her so much she's thinking of getting one herself. She really is a great puppy!
I just wanted to send along this new picture of Tweek or 'Andy' as you remember him. We took it at Jeremy's send off to the war in Afghanistan. I sewed him his own little combat jacket and got the doggles (which hehates and we can only get him to wear momentarily but the picture is awesome) Anyway we figured you may like to put it up on your website :) Oh andwe've been following the National Geographic Channel's 'Dog Whisperer' (Cesar Millan)'s advice and would highly recommend it for any of your future owners. Seems the key is walk, walk walk! LOL Anyway hope all is wellon your end!

Just wanted to give you an update on little Oliver. He went yesterday for neutering. All went well, and he's seems back to his happy, bouncy self today! Once again our vet says he is a perfect chihuahua. He says he is a wonderful example of the breed, and the healthiest puppy he's ever seen!! I told him all about the Nutra Vet, and told him it all starts with a great breeder. He agreed, and wrote down your website for future reference. They also took a copy of your business card to hang in the office! He says he will definitely recommend you if anyone is interested in getting a chihuahua. He says Oliver is very lucky to have such a loving home, and he can't wait to meet Kiki. Me too! We are so excited to meet little miss "low rider"! lol
Talk to you soon,
Oh we are doing absolutely wonderful. He weighs about 7 pounds 6ounces. His hair is getting pretty long too. Max is probably the happiestmost out going loving dog I have ever been around. He loves to play,what looks like soccer, with our ping pong balls which is pretty funny towatch! But he LOVES to eat and he LoVeS to chew on dingo bones! Butthanks for asking!
Shayla & Lacey
This weekend has been so much fun and we are deliriously tired! I have been so busy with Tessa that it has taken this long to update. I looks like you sent me a mouse! I forgot how little Chi's can be. She has got to be the most beautiful Chihuahua I have ever seen (Well, Rosey is an awesome red Chihuahua!). The brindle color is amazing! We got back from the vet and she is healthy,of course: She weighs 1.8 pounds. . She did get her required shot and she tested positive for Coccidia, from what I read is very common for puppies. She has the Albon medication and will go back for another vet check on April 5th. I must of looked like a dork because I thought they were going to give her a dose of the medication before we left. They didn't because if she got car sick she would of required another dose of Albon. So I am sitting in the examination room for 15 minutes for nothing. They were probably thinking- what is wrong with her? Just another neurotic pet owner....Tessa's little playpen is pictured below. The box with what looks like astro turf is her "litter" box. As for accidents, it has been minimal (maybe three) She took to it like a duck to water. When we got home from the airport the weather took a turn for the worse, and it would have been really difficult to try to take her outside to potty. I was worried that she was constipated because when I got her from the airport, I found a grassy spot to take her outside. She was having trouble and was straining for awhile. She did not have an accident in her crate so she seemed to be plugged up a little. Then when she got rid of the plug she would have put an elephant to shame. She didn't have diarrhea, just copious amounts of poop for awhile.When I got her from the airport, it was like I was picking up a celebrity. There was someone that wanted to take a picture of her because they had never seen a dog so small. All the ooohs and ahhhs. There was another person picking up their dog and was admiring Tessa. Our first meeting was incredible- what a love she is! She cuddled right away and took some of the nutra-cal right away. Her crate was a little soaked but luckily she was not. I think, with all the literature sent in the puppy pack and information on the website, we prepared well and the 65 mile drive home was comfortable for her. She seems to have everything a baby Chihuahua needs and she eats very well. I mixed her nu vet vitamins with a little chicken baby food. I don't have to coax her to eat it- she pretty much wolfs it down. She crates very easily. The first night she wimpered a bit but her crate is near my bed- a little soft reassurances let her know that we aren't far and she nestles down into her little blanket. A two AM litter box run prevents any accidents and she is good to go until 6AM. Timing couldn't have been better- both girls are home from Buffalo and Oswego. They will be able to put in a little quality bonding time and post pictures on their Facebook accounts. Our greyhound is very gentle and seems afraid to go near her but will sit in the middle of the floor during a play session acting like a dignified prop. Once in awhile he will sniff her and see what she's all about but I think he has already accepted her into the family. Rosey, the Chihuahua will adjust. Just like a child, she will need reassurance that she is equally loved. We have went on a couple of adventures just her(Rosey) and me. It will take time. My husband is like a marshmallow around Tessa and will remind the kids to be quiet if she is napping and will cuddle with her for afternoon siestas. He asked for pictures to take to work.She loves the rubber chicken and a furry fuzzy fox (not pictured). I haven't heard her bark yet. Developmental?(Pictured) Tessa (Lupita) taking a well deserved nap! I just wanted to let you know that Tessa is loved and is doing just fine! Her laid back and friendly personality will fit well into our family. We have so many adventures planned-I can't wait. The love she gives to us will not be taken for granted and rest assured she will be loved back and taken care of to the best of our ability.Many thanks to you and your family- I am so glad I stumbled on to your website.
I just wanted to update you on the puppies:Hattie:Her new name is Coco Chanel and is definitely the new princess in town and lets everyone know by the way she "struts her stuff". She is just so adorable and we are all making a big fuss over her. My older female Chihuahua (who I rescued last year) is "mothering" her making sure she is safe! Coco is particularly fond of my Dad's Chihuahua "Taco"…she follows him everywhere when we visit next door. She is using a wee-wee pad and I am so proud of her!Casey:His new name is Chester and very well adjusted to his new home. Happy-go-lucky, he loves to go out in the back yard and run laps in circles! My Dad's other dog, Taco is always in the recliner with my Dad while watching TV and my Dad figured that Chester would be great for my Mom's lap…well, that's not happening…my Dad now has two lap dogs!! Taco and Chester are best friends and they are both always on my dad's heels.Shayna, your Chihuahua's are second to none and your entire family really deserves an award for the way you make them part of your family from the day they are born. It has been amazing to see the love and attention you all give these babies through your weekly updates. It makes all the difference in the world in the quality of the little personalities. These babies are not little cowards hiding in a corner somewhere. They are well-socialized and arrived in our home happy and anxious to play! Anyone thinking of purchasing a Chihuahua from anyone else would be crazy! I thank your family from the bottom of my heart and please be assured that we will love and care for these babies as much as you have! I will send you pictures in a few days.
All my love,
I just thought I would give you a quick update on Ace...we named him Wilson. He recently got his last set of shots and he is doing great. He has a really sweet personality and is very confident with himself around our three cats and our bigger, older chihuahua. His eyes have stayed a sort of darker denim blue color. I think he is starting to look a little like his dad Dante in the face (how he looks like he's smiling) and has long legs like his mom Maya in her photos. He can run like a little bullet! He loves people and has gotten to be buddies with our other chihuahua. The older one acts protective of Wilson around the cats and even runs around and rounds him up when it's time to come in from going outside! Anyway, I don't have a picture to send today, but I will try to do that sometime. We still enjoy going to chichibabies.com to see all of your babies. Have a good day!
I just thought I'd email you and give you a status update on life with Toddy (Panda as y'all knew her). She has been such a joy and blessing to my husband and me!!!! We could not be happier with her, and love her to pieces! Hands down, I think she is the best dog I've owned. I can't thank you enough for your patience in helping me when I was looking for her. We are so happy and blessed to have her! She is such a cuddle bug and sweet heart!!! I've attached a few pictures of her so you can see our sweet little girl. Thanks again for such a sweet baby girl!
PS - Looking at your website makes me want another little one! :)
I wanted to drop you a line with a Pico update :)She is an AMAZING puppy, and a wonderful addition to our family! I cannot say enough about what a great temperament she has…and she is off the charts cute too. She sits in my lap the whole time I work, but loves playing (especially fetch) and taking walks just as much as cuddling.Pico was spayed the other week…and the first day was heartbreaking to see her in pain (they did give her meds), but she rebounded wonderfully. I knew she was better the next day because she snuck into the laundry room and stole a sock from the laundry basket (her favorite game :) She also house trained SO quickly…just a very easy and easy to love chi. I get stopped anywhere I take her…she walks so well on her leash and is simply sweet. Pico is just over 7 pounds… petite and elegant. Her posture is gorgeous.Please see attached photos (have to put a hand in once and awhile to help with scale as she is so petite). Hope all is going well for you!
Mandy and Dairen
I wanted to update you on Dara, she is doing fine, eating well, gaining weight, and definitely has a personality of her own, very spoiled already, has me and my husband wrapped around her little toes, lol. She is training well with puppy pads and will sometimes let me know she wants to go outside to do her business. We love her dearly and thank Izzie and Cruz for making us such a beautiful baby.
Kathy, Jim, and Kammie
Just thought I’d give you a little update on Chico. I attached some pics and a couple of videos. As you can see, he just hates it here….ha ha…..He dearlyloves to run. In the running video he is actually quite tame in it. He’s usually making strides all over the yard. He’s mapped out a track in the house that he runs often too. He is such a ball of energy….and soooo friendly. In the other video if you listen closely you can hear him growling. Such a savage beast! He hasn’t met a stranger yet….loves everyone and everyone that meets himloves him too. He has done so well with his house training that we have given him free reign of the house. If we’re gone from him for more than 4 or 5 hourshe may have a small accident but he has this one particular spot he’ll go to as a last resort…and its easy clean up. It was tough training him to go outsidefor the first 4 weeks but he finally caught on. Last vet check he weighed almost 2 lbs. He’s still tiny. I did notice that he has the same stature as Pedro. He looks a lot like him from what I can tell from Pedro’s pics on your website. We have not scheduled getting him fixed yet but we will as soon as the vet feels he is ready.We love him so much. He is such a wonderful addition to our family. Thanks again for raising a sweet and healthy pup.
Well we are thinking today is Remi's one year birthday and just wanted to send an update on her. She is such an amazing little dog. She has to be held by someone at all times and she loves to sit on our shoulders in bed and chew her favorite toy. She actually follows us around and whines until we go to bed with her. She loves her sisters, and it took awhile but they all love her too. She gets up and goes to work with her Mom everyday at the clinic. Her temperment is so great, she is so loving and loyal, spunky but mellow when she needs to be. She is still leary about strangers but really likes the people she knows. She does a little trick we call praying. If she wants something she will stand up on her hind legs, put her front paws together and move them up and down together like she is praying. We love her so much and she really did the trick for our hurting family.If Pedro and Catalina ever have puppies again we would love to get another little girl from their litter.I've attached some pics of Remi so you can see how cute she turned out. She is really hard to get a picture of. One of the pictures you can see if you are sitting on the bed she will run and jump up and sit on top of your shoulder.Thanks again for such a sweet little girl.
Tim and Tamra
Thought I would send you an update on Lexi (Dusti) She is doing great, we have had no problems. She eats like a little pig. She is still fearless! She sleeps the whole night through.She is going to be a perfect little apple head girl. We all love her!
Tito is awesome. We re-named him Grizzly, because he is like our little bear cub. He is so playful and loving. He has been incredible so far, great potty training outside, and he took to the protection and comfort of his kennel right away. Yesterday, I brought him for his 12 week shots and he was also tested for Parvo and got a stool float. Our vet said he looks awesome and is at a healthy weight. So far he knows how to sit and stay, but "lay down" is sort of a challenge for him. We love him so much, and he is such a pleasure to have around. I am so happy, I feel like we have had him for years rather than just a week!All of my coworkers love him, and he has been great getting to socialize with other dogs and children. Thank you so much for being such an excellent and caring breeder. We love Grizzly so much and we will definitely give him a snuggle and a smooch from you! I hope all is well.
I'm happy to report that Colby "Pip" is very happy at his new home. He has taken a quick liking to his brother Jack, a toy poodle. His other brother Nelson, a cocker spaniel on the other hand, is not quite sure about him yet. He is already eating his food and pottying outside on his puppy pad. We love him!! We had a good playtime and now he's pooped. Night night.
I was actually planning on sending you an update today! :)Kaden (now known as Zeus), is settling in just great! Hedefinitely does not like to be away from me, and he and one of our huskies, Nikita, love playing together! She is so gentle and patient with him, even when he's biting at her eye. Haha.Zeus had his first training class today at Petsmart. He was the smallest one in the class, and possibly the youngest, but just as fiesty as any other puppy. After a few times (he kept getting distracted), he started getting the idea of "sit", "down" is still a work in progress, but I know, that with practice, he'll get it! Everyone who sees him is amazed by his coloring and markings, I even had someone ask me if he was mixed with a blueheeler. Haha.Potty training is a little splotchy at the moment, but I am sure that, in time and with consistency, he will be potty trained. He hated his crate, so he now has a 16 square foot pen to be in, if he isn't able to be supervised or when its meal time, or bed time.He had his vet appointment on June 8th and got his shots, and got him microchiped. Our vet said that he was in perfect health, weighing in at 2.66lbs. He has his next vet appointment on July 6th for his next round of shots. :)I want to thank you so much for raising such a happy, loving, healthy puppy, and I am so glad that he is a part of our family! I have included some photos and a video, some of them I have also posted on Facebook (I cant help but to brag about him :P), but in case you haven't seen them on Facebook, I have included them for you :)
Thank You again,
Jack and Becca
Hope all is well with you and yours! Just wanted to let you know that we took Ziggy to vet yesterday morning for his second to last set of boosters. He goes back in 3 weeks which at this time will include his rabies vaccination and he will be done until he is neutered on June 27th.Just wanted to let you know that he is doing great, aced his exam again, was so good with the shots, didn't even make a sound! Ziggy now weighs 2 pounds 5 ounces! Eats very little. He weighed 1.98 pounds when he first came home. Gets along great with everyone, even my old grumpy chi is now playing with him, and he plays with one of my older kittens which is great. Such a loving and sweet personality he has! Ziggy is going to be one gorgeous, loving little man!
How are you doing??? Solomon (now Dali) is doing fantastic! He is so adorable, I'm so in love, he makes me very happy! Here is a picture. I also wanted to tell you that he has been finally neutered. What are the next steps to get his certificate?

I wanted to share this pictures with you. We are loving our sweet COCO so much!!!! She is so spoiled and such an awesome dog!! Hope y'all had a great holiday. Thanks again!
We are so in love with little Titan ! He is already so spoiled :) he got to experience what it was like at our house watching football Sunday and he would run and hop around when he saw us getting excited . Haha! I have had so many people ask me where I got him and have even had people offer me money for him which will NEVER happen ! He is already such a big part of our family ! Thank you for checking in on us . I will send pics soon!
I hope all is well with you ! I wanted to send you a quick update on Titan. I have to start by saying that we absolutely love him ! He has the best temperament and never meets a stranger. He and my son , Brode are stuck like glue :) He also still hops like a bunny when he runs ! Haha! He is so much fun and loves to snuggle and give kisses :) we love him so!!
Thank you !
Wanted to give you an update on Benny. He's perfect! He and Roxy love each other & spend all day & night playing & snuggling. We did start with crate training but he does so well with the pads we didn't need to worry. So he and Roxy share a heated bed.The only issue is that he will pee & poop on anything left on the floor that resembles a blanket. But we worked with that & just don't leave things on the floor.The vet says he's great & healthy. He eats his food- no problem! My boyfriend has been doing training with him and he does best with fruits & veggies. He's not a huge fan of the training treats. But he comes running when he hears cutting boards and knives coming out.We absolutely love him to pieces!!Thank you again for sending him to us!
I just wanted to thank you again for Jasmine ( we renamed her Athena), she is the absolute best! We are in love with her. She is very smart and spunky. She’s responding to her name, learned the sit command, and has only had 2 accidents. We’re training her to go outside and it’s going very well. The day after I picked her up I took her to the vet and the vet confirmed she was in perfect health. Everyone at the vet fell in love with her too! I plan to get her spayed in April. From her great health, wonderful temperament and beautiful coat it’s easy to see she came from an excellent Breeder. You are great at what you do and we are so thankful for our precious little fur baby. She will be spoiled and loved forever! I attached a few pics for you and will send you more updates.
I just had to email you and let you know how in love with her I am!! She is such a sweet, loving, smart little pup. I’m so impressed with her! She’s been doing great with the pee pads and she’s been sleeping in bed with me, without accidents! She’s constantly by my side, I’m so happy with her. Thank you so much!
I hope you're doing well. We decided to rename Prissy to Sophie. She's doing really well and growing like crazy! She's such a lap dog. She likes to nap in my lap and she LOVES belly rubs. She has such a good temperament. Her sweet little face and puppy kisses make me so happy. <3Thank you for breeding such a wonderful little baby. :)
I meant to write back right away but I kept leaving my iPad at work so here I am, better late than never haha.Rotten Britches is doing fantastic! He is so smart and we are very thrilled with everything about him. He has taken to paper training quite well and goes out with the older dogs a couple times per day as well! Even though Kenneth hasn’t been home a lot since he came to us, he remembered exactly who he was the minute he walked in the door on Thursday evening. I also wanted you to know I was looking at your site a few nights ago (it became a habit for me, lol) and was watching the featured puppy video, and Rotten was up in my lap and you could just tell that he recognized your voice! He was watching the screen and looking for you! He is so playful and loves the other dogs here. My female chi, Buttons, is crazy about him and Shih Tzu Diego mostly ignores him around me but that is Diego’s usual thing. Rotten is afraid of nothing and loves and kisses us each day, such a sweetheart! He wasn’t having any part of his play pen and I was afraid he was going to hurt his little teeth on the mesh when we tried to put him in it in the beginning so he roams free with the others and is doing great. He sleeps in bed with me and the other dogs each night and sleeps well, and pops up when my alarm goes off each morning, ready to potty and play his heart out! He is just perfect! I am going to try to attach a video I made of him playing with Buttons a week ago on Sunday, just the morning after he got here. I think you saw the Facebook pictures. Best wishes to you there and I hope to hear from you anytime you want to check on him! Thank you for such a fantastic baby!
Just thought I’d give you an update on “Fiesta,” now renamed “Rico.” He’s doing great, he adjusted really fast. He’s progressively gotten more and more wild but that’s okay because it means he’s getting comfortable. He keeps trying to force our older chihuahua Max, who’s 13, to play with him and Max is not a fan. Our other dog is kind of scared of Rico just because he’s so rambunctious. But, I absolutely love him. He went to the vet Tuesday and was all good, just got a routine dewormer. He’s a total snuggle bug and has definitely bonded with me. We love him so much and I’m glad he’s so happy here. Thanks for my new baby!
My apologies for taking so long to get back with you. Fern is doing great and has adapted very rapidly to her new home. The first couple of days our other puppy had some issues with her, but now they are absolutely best friends, playing together and just hanging out with each other. She has been such a loving little addition to our family! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you and treasure your honesty and obvious love for these little dogs.I will stay in touch with you and keep sending you updates. If you need any recommendation or testimonial regarding the quality of your operation, please don’t hesitate to let me know!Thank you so much!!
Dan & Ali
He is doing great, the vet gave him a good report and he and mochi are the best of friends. Mochi is the little adventurer and Vasquez isn’t scared of anything except car rides. Thanks so much for our babies they have already brought us lots and lots of joy!
Wanted to wait until today to text you , Willoh had appt. at vet’s for shots and wanted to see how much she weighed so I could let you know ! 3.2 lbs.....She has settled in very well !!! She is so much company for me !I have a wire pen set up on my patio and we go out quiet often .She lives to run and jump and is very playful!!! She pulls all my shoes out of a basket I have them in and carries them to the living room , they are bigger than her !!! She gives me lots of puppy kisses and it like my Tucker was , she likes sitting on my neck lol She is a joy and has helped me tremendously with the loss of Tucker . All I can say is she is very healthy and let go outside if I’m not careful she runs like lightning and is in the yard , by hat is why I got her a playpen for out side ....thank you again for this precious puppy . I will send you a recent picture after this tex. ....I hope all is well with your son and daughter in law and if I may ask has she had her baby ?
Take care and be safe,
I intended to send more details, my husband brought food home and I got distracted. Clementine/Bella is doing so wonderful. She struts and hops all over the house, wears herself out and sleeps so peacefully. She is eating and drinking well, going to the bathroom fine. She is so funny, she can climb upon the couch by getting into the groves of the couch. I have a quilted throw, she hooks her nails into the threads , pulls herself up and arches her head and keeps on until she is on the couch. She climbs upon me and sits on my shoulder. We play a lot. She loves tug of war. She loves to go into the front living room with my other babies and look out side and bark, I have a big bow window that’s floor to ceiling, perfect for her to make sure all is well out side. She received an A+ on her vet check up on April 17th and she will be going back to the doctor May 5th. You have given me such a blessed gift, she is my sunshine and you are my special friend, talk to you later Shayna.
Our sweet boy is doing amazing! He is doing so good and loves the kids! His ears have gone up and he is such a beautiful boy! You were right pictures don’t do his coloring justice! He has been to the vet twice and they rave about what a sweet temperament he has and how laid back he is while they have him. They say he is doing great!
