Arrival Story: Angel is My Mothers dog..
Ever since I moved out of My Mothers home she has missed my 2 dogs (Clover & Sprite) She helped raise them. Taught them all their tricks and gave them tons of Love! So she needed her own dog, as she liked the small size of Spirte.. decided to offer her a Chihuahua. So My Sisters got our Mother this Puppy as Birthday Gift. My Mother is so good with her and we know how happy the pup will make her. She has so much Love to give her!
Bio: Angel is a dominant little pup, but in my Mothers hands is learning her place with love & training. Though Angel is very loving (Loves People) is Sooo friendly & Sweet! Non-stop playfullness. SO intelligent, learns "tricks" very easily (through my Mom's training) House breaking (litter box) training is going very well. She sleeps in my Mothers room with her and does best if you let her cuddle under your chin. I am so Happy my Mom has her.. I Love that skinky Angel!.. and now My Mother & I will both bring our own Chihuahua's to the Monthly Chihuahua Meet-ups.

I can't believe Angel is already ONE year old.. wow this is my Mom's dog and time has gone by fast. I've grown to LOVE Angel very much. Though I see her every month or so. But I will be soon be moving much closer to them. I am SOOO HAPPY for my Mother, so glad she decided to allow my sisters to give her Angel. I've seen how much Angel brings her joy, pride & love!!
Also My Mom goes out for walks with her all the time.. so that is good for my mother as well.
We have discovered that Angel has diminished eye sight. Angel was always extra weary. We play a "game" with our dogs with their food. We toss piece by piece and the dog must run after it or search for it. They have lots of fun doing it. Well we noticed that if it a piece of dog kibble was thrown even 2 inches away from Angel she had no idea where it went.. and she would go off searching, but by sniffing back and forth all over. She used her nose alot more then most Chihuahua's do. And when she could hear the kibble on hard floors she then would go running towards the noise. Through other "testing" we knew she couldn't see as well. Also the way she would react to people & my dogs.. for instants.. I would come in my Mothers room in the morning (or night) and Angel would seem to see me.. but would growl and bark.. until I came directly up close to her.. and calmed her down. So My Mother took her to the Vet and the vet said she's blind. Well there was no official test.. but we know she's not fully blind. Another vet said yes she has bad eye sight.. so we are finding out about getting some testing done, have to go to a specialist. Hopefully this isn't something that will get worse. Love that little Angel girl!
