Arrival Story:
I purchased Carmelita from a breeder. I was to see a vet within 48 hrs of purchasing her to verify she was in good health. The vet actually told me she wasn't and proceeded to tell me she would not last a year. At that time, Carmelita was 6 wks old and all of 12 oz in weight. The breeder wanted me to bring her back and to choose another, but I couldn't. After I first saw Carmelita, I had to wait until she was 6 wks old to take her home. I would make visits to her until I was able to, so she would get to know me. I fell in love with this little one, and felt it was like waiting to adopt a baby. I couldn't just disregard her for having an issue. That issue was the fontinal in the skull, which is typical to chihuahua's. The vet said the opening was too large and eventually she would have various issues. I knew in my heart she would be taken care of. Carmelita currently does experience seizures, but she has made it beyond the advised one year and is now 8 yrs old. She takes medication and her seizures are controlled. It is ironic to me that she ended up having seizures as I had them when I was a child. God works in mysterious ways because by my having had them, I certainly have understanding. I was taken care of and now I am doing the same. All I can say is the blessings of having Carmelita in my life are unlimited. I tell people that she gives chihuahua's a good name because she is the most loving, the most docile, and sweetest chi a person would meet. She is a short hair, applehead chihuahua. They seem to have the best disposition, but its possible that is just coincidence. One of the wonderful joys about Carmelita is she honestly loves people. When I take her out, she definately has an affect on people too. At times I feel like I am out with a celebrity. Carmelita gets a lot of oooh's & awww's and a lot of requests to have her picture taken. She has been on channel 5 news, channel 12 news, az central.com, and has been seen in various newspapers. Why? Just because she is cute I guess. Well, she does have a little wardrobe, and she darns her outfits like a proud princess. I never would have seen myself as a person who dresses a dog, but since she was so tiny and would get so cold at times, I purchased fleece blankets of course, but eventually picked up a little sweater, and since she liked it, the wardobe grew from there. It is a fun past time, and people enjoy her immencley! Her wardrobe even includes a little Mrs Claus dress that last Christmas, when Santa was at our mall, she had a picture taken with him, and boy did she make even Santa smile! I hope you enjoy Carmelita's pictures and that they make YOU smile! Many Blessings to YOU! Toni & Carmelita
