|man, this whole topic about inexperienced dog owners reminds me of a guy i knew a while back.
he lived with his sister on our military base, and they had a teeny tiny little yorkie named roscoe.
roscoe lived in a small, random room that connected the kitchen and the laundry room.
he was kept in said room with baby gates, and never--i repeat--NEVER allowed out.
he's never been on a walk, never met another dog, never been potty trained, never been payed attention to.
they let him pee and poop in this room without any puppy pads or anything, it was GROSS!!!
and when they let him in the living room, he's sooooo sweet and loving but i could hardly stand having him near me because he smelled like he'd been marinated in pee.
i just don't understand some dog owners -___-
this case in particular had me floored with how much they claimed to be loving dog people, and yet the conditions roscoe was kept in were just unsanitary and inhumane.
no offence, this cousin of yours sounds pretty nuts, too!
$2500 for a backyard-bred chihuahua?
i thought $1200 for my pet-store puppy was outrageous;
but why would she even agree to that!?
i agree with everyone else, getting her a book on chihuahua care sounds like an excellent idea!
hopefully she'll pay attention to what it says 0_o
