Hello All! I'm Crystal; I have a 2 yr old chihuahua mix named Rupert. If I had half the energy or desire to run that he does, I probably wouldn't be on SP. Rupert loves going to the dog park. We can't say "park" around him because he knows what it means and gets mad if we don't end up going. He's got quite the personality and it will be fun to share with others who know what that Chihuahua personality is like!

Hi all, My name is Kate. I have a chi-chi mix puppy who's about 5 months old. She went through some health problems in the beginning, but she is much better now. She is a ball of energy and we have such a blast with her. Her mom was a pom-yorkie mix and dad was a chihuahua. She has the temperment and personality of a chi, and we think of her as a chi. I can really use the help and support of other chihuahua parents... even though she's a mix. It seems like there are some unique challenges with these dogs... like potty training, and I can really use the help! emoticon

Hi everyone! I'm new to this team. I've been a member of SP for several years however was inactive until recently. I've decided SP is the best way to track my food and a fantastic way to meet some really great people. When I saw the Chihuahua team, I had to join. I have 4 chihuahuas (and a rat terrier names Zoey). Three little girls, Lilly, Josie and Gracie Mae and a boy, Winston. Winston is my profile pic! I can't imagine my life without my furry little babies.

Hope everyone has a great day!!!

Hi I'm Karol... I've been with SP for over a year now. I love the web site and the friends I have met. I have two furry girls... Precious 7 yrs (4# 2 oz) and Ginger 3 yrs (3# 9 oz). They are the cutes and the sweetest! I have pictures on my site of them. They make me laugh, smile and love unconditionally. They are the 5th and 6th Chihuahua's I have owned. The first 4 were a family. We had Boomer Dad for 8yrs BaBe Mom was 18, her sons were Bandit 16 and Buster 17 yrs old when they died.

Have an awesome week and I look forward to this team and meeting everyone! emoticon

Hello MissLyn and welcome to our team! Iam fairly new here myself as well as new to Sparkpeople too. We look forward to hearing all about Marcello. He looks a little like my Tea'a from what I can tell from the picture. She is black and tan with a racoon mask on her face. Chelsea is all brown and very fluffy. Mine are both long haired Chis.

Hi Everyone I am very happy to have found this team. I love my Chihuahua he is my baby. His name is Marcello and is 5 years old. I got him when he was only 4 months. I do love to put sweaters on him and sometimes t-shirts. He gets a halloween costume every year and I get him a Christmas sweater too. My family tells me I'm nuts but I don't mind, they maybe right but I know I'm not the only one who dresses their Chi.
I have been married for 34 years I have 4 children, 3 daughters, My daughters are married with children of there own. They have given me a total of 7 grandchildren (6 grandsons and 1 granddaughter). I also have one son he is 19 years old and my youngest. He is in collage and they all have made me very proud.

Hello Everyone!

I am so glad to have found this group! I have 2 "chi's". But in my house we call them "who's". LOL. Because when they come upstairs to go to bed they sound like a train coming with their panting. So my husband coined the word "Chi hu hu's" or "Hu choo choo"s" We absolutely love ours. We have Chelsea who just turned 7 last month. We got her as a puppy. And we just got Tea'a in March, she is 6 and is a rescue. My SP photo has me holding both of them, Tea'a is the black and tan one. They both sleep in bed with us, and Tea'a has come to be such a blessing. I will talk more about her in the chat forum. We also have 4 Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, one of which is 16 1/2 years old!

I have 3 grown children, 2 daughters still in college and a son who lives out on his own now. So my dogs are my babies now. I have been married for going on 27 years now. I love quilting and am chairperson for the charity quilts program of my local quilt guild. We make throw size quilts and donate them to our local cancer center for cancer patients to keep them warm during treatments.

I look forward to getting to know all of you and your chi's.

Yes, they are delicate. I gave a puppy to my stepson and wife/kids. She was taking her out and leaning over when the now grown puppy jumped out of her arms, not all that far from the ground, but must have landed wrong and broke some toes! So that was a big bill and a cast on a small foot. emoticon

Lol, yes that is why I named him Thor. He is severely stubborn but intensely loyal and loving. I've been careful about handling him. My daughter is doing pretty well with it. I've heard horror stories about their little legs!

Welcome to our little group.

It IS a BIG dog issue. It's just that this big dog comes in a small body! LOL. You do have to be careful. They DO think they are big dogs, and can get themselves into trouble sometimes with that thinking. They have huge personalities. Just make sure your 3 yr. old doesn't pick him up, always have him/her sit on the floor to hold the puppy/dog. That way no one gets dropped, pinched, etc. I gave my friend a puppy (very small one) and she has a small child. That dog and child have bonded so well, they are nearly inseparable. She is now one of my piano students and tells everyone "My piano teacher gave me Chico!" LOL.

These guys can do nearly everything a big dog can do, but with care. Yes, LOTS of energy.

Hi everyone! My family has had 2 dogs (a toy Pom & mutt) for nearly 15 years now. One has breast cancer and the other has seizures (get your lady dogs fixed and watch medications!!). Anyhow I wanted a chihuahua so badly, and I wanted to rescue one. I saw so many on craigslist that needed homes that I found a black and tan boy that was about 2 months old. I named him Thor (although my daughter calls him "Thorm").
He has more energy than I ever thought possible. I was told he wouldn't be much for walking, hah! He can run down the beach longer than I can! He bickers with my 3 year old, but they love each other. At 6 months he chews EVERYTHING. I incorrectly thought this was only a big dog issue! Nice to meet everyone and their babies emoticon

Hi, My name is Sara. I am in Tejas and I am the proud momma of 2 chihuahuas (Roscoe & Prissy), 4 chiwinnies (Isabelle, Precious, Hoodini, and Po-po), 1 min-pin (Kandybar), and 1 boxer (Doodles) - don't worry, I live on a large plot of land in the country so they are all very happy dogs, lol. I have lost 25 pounds so far (I'm so excited). I am an avid lover of chihuahuas and I thought this would be a nice place to come and share funny chihuahua stories.

A bit late, but emoticon Sherry and Elizabeth. Elizabeth, join us on the team challenge, posted under... yup, Team Challenges! LOL.
We won't chat there, if we decide we need a chat area I can add a post for that, but figure we might just as well do it in our daily chat area. Maybe we can motivate others if we "chat it up"! LOL.

Elizabeth, I went and looked to see photos of your baby, just saw your kitty. Let us know when you post more.

Hi - I'm Sherry from western Wisconsin. We adopted a Chihuahua last May. Though she is a purebred, she weighs 12 lbs. and is sleeping on my lap as I type. I love Pearl to pieces; she is our first Chi. We also have a beagle, who is the other love of my life (besides my husband, of course). My daughters each have tortoises to boot. We LOVE animals. They keep me young! As far as SP, I have been in Weight Watchers on and off for years. I recently quit (again) because I hadn't lost any weight for months. I have about 20 more to go. I think SP is a wonderful thing, and I look forward to sticking with it!

Hi, I am Elizabeth from East TN. I saw this group and had to join. I have a tiny chihuahua named Grace, because she always appears to be so composed. I got her when she was just 6 weeks old, and I had no idea what I was getting myself into. She was very tiny, but I thought all chihuahuas were tiny, and assumed the other puppies that were larger were from another litter, wrong. Now that she is three, she only weighs in at a little over 2 pounds. Her size has brought along challenges, and I have pillows and stools everywhere so we can avoid long jumps and injuries. Most people baby proof their house I have chihuahua proofed mine. What she lacks in size she makes up for in heart. I will have her pictures posted soon, because I know she is ticked that the cat (her best friend) made it online first. I honestly can't imagine life without a chihuahua in the house.
I am determined to lose about 80 pounds and would love to be friends with fellow chi lovers that are determined like I am to lose this weight once and for all. I have lost 4 pounds so far! Every ounce downard is a victory.

Hi, I'm a chi lover by fate. I rescued both of mine, 2 y/o Zipporah and 1 y/o Wyatt. Never had a small dog before but these guys are great. They are loving, smart and make me laugh. I don't know what took me so long to get one. I appreciate knowing like minded folks.

Hi Chi lovers! I'm Patti and have 3 chis. Buffy (hence the Sparkname...I consider myself Buffy's mom too) is 7 yrs young and weighs 10 pounds. She is "big boned" like her mommy. Veronica is 5 yrs young and is 5 lbs. My littlest baby is Darla the littlest at 4 pounds and is 1.5 yrs old. They give me such love and joy...along with our other 3 dogs. Some day I will get my stuff together and put new photos of them all on my page. I always wanted a lap dog and these are them! Thank God for Chihuahuas and Chihuahua lovers! emoticon

Hello, my name is Pamela and I've been hanging out on spark pages a few weeks now. Saw a link to dog lovers and went exploring...happy to found other chi lovers. Seems like two is the magic number. My boy is Ito, he's five and just over 3lbs. Our girly girl is flicka, aka snaggle tooth, she just turned two and is close to 6 lbs. she's got a lot of spunk, I love watching the pups play and their personalities are so different. My little man loves to be carried and cuddled while the girl just wants to run and be free.
Anyhow, happy to have found a support group with similar interests. Happy to be on spark.
Take care all.
Pamela

Hi, I'm Cathy. I'm new to both Sparkpeople and this team. I'm looking for friends to join me on this weight-loss journey. I have 2 chi's: Chico, my boy, is 11 months old; Sarah, my girl, is 10 months old. They're my babies. I love them dearly. I'm looking forward to my 50th birthday in July (27). I hope to lose some more weight by then. My initial goal was to fit into my smaller size 16W jeans, but I'm already in them! Woohoo! I'd like to be 168 by then (15 Lbs). I'm on thyroid medication because I have low thyroid and am hoping I can finally lose weight here on SP. Thank you for the support so far!

You can post anywhere you like. But mainly we "chat" on the Chihuahua Chat area. Come join us there, and on the challenge- 2 posts for that- one for just the challenge and one to "chat" about how it's going, support each other, etc. Also, Phyllis has several posts on what you need to work/improve on, changes you've made, etc. Just have a look around all the posts and get familiar. Any questions just ask. :) Hugs, Carol

SCIENCE8, welcome to our team. We do love our chi's. I would love to see your chi pics when you get some posted, I saw that you are pretty new to SparkPeople. But I notice you may not have a spark page open or done yet, is it set to private? If you want to you can add me as a friend so I can check in on you and motivate you in your goals. Or lend an ear too.
Keep sparkling and when you're ready, just jump into our Chihuahua Chat so we can get to know you. Our team is a bit small, but we are friendly and just love our Chihuahuas.
Hope to chat with you soon,
Phyllis

Hey there TXZUMBACHICK... WELCOME to our Chi group. We're a friendly bunch. I happen to raise babies. :) Infact, if you look at our team photo, that's my 3 babies I have right now- well, 2 now, 1 is sold.
You want to wait until your girl is at least 2 yrs. to have puppies, or it's like a "baby" having a baby and hard on their bodies as well. I'm not a large breeder, just have a couple of females who I can breed now and then and a "daddy".
Get a book or 2 on chihuahuas and read up on all the breeding stuff and when the time comes, have it right to hand, with the important things highlighted so that if you are worried, in a panic, etc. you can find it. :) It's usually not that tough, but it's always nerve-wracking until you know mama and babies are all fine and healthy.
It's late and I haven't eaten yet, (have been gone all day helping my dad with my mom, mostly keeping them company today and making them dinner, etc.). But I wanted to welcome you right away and say come join our chat. :)

Hi TXZUMBACHICK!! Welcome Linda!
Princess Fee Fee made me smile big, that name is so cute. Yes, chi's are adorable. I haven't been to your page yet to see if you have any pics for us to see your babies. But will head that way in a few minutes.
We are happy that you joined our team. There's a few very nice, supportive sparkers on our team. We're not a real big team, but we make up for it in giving support and motivation to our members in their gettin healthy goals.
We have a couple new threads that just started, and a new challenge which Carol just started as well, it's a small challenge, but she will be adding to it as the days go by.
So jump into the conversation and chat with us, we'd love to hear more about you and your babies especially.
Phyllis

It turns out that an eerie type of chaos can lurk just behind a facade of order - and yet, deep inside the chaos lurks an even eerier type of order.

Welcome SCIENCE8 to our group. I LOVE dogs, all dogs, but there is something REALLY special about chi's. They are SO unique. I had to laugh when I read about your daughter. My daughter and son-in-law always SWORE they would NEVER own a chi. They had several other dogs. Well, then I gave my granddaughter one of my puppies. They are now on their 3rd chi (2 at a time) and of all their dogs they are the SPOILED ones. Her latest is a crocheted hat for "Bernard". He is absolutely CUTE in it. A pompom on top.
Yes, chi's are special and so are chi lovers. :-)

I am always happy to find other chihuahua lovers. We have 2. Winnie is a brindle coat 4 year old and Oliver is aback 2 year old. Like so many of you have said, it is surprising to both me and my husband how much you can fall in love with these little dogs. Our daughter refers to us as crazy dog people. I had wanted a dog all of my life and finally, when I turned 50 my dream came true!

Hi everyone! My name is Evelyn aka Ev/Ang. Carol I did friend you. I love dogs!!! We lost a Peke in October and a Husky in Jan. Several years ago we rescued a Chorkie from our local humane society. They had gotten him from a puppy mill. He was kept in the same cage from a puppy on. His poor legs were misshapen and his tail has a permanent bend in it. He is the sweetest little boy. After we got him, we rescued a Golden mix. After the Peke went to the Rainbow Bridge, at the end of OCtober, we got a long-haired Chi. His name was Bowser, but it was so close to our Chorkie Bruzer, that I changed it to Snuggles as that's what he likes very best. He came to rescue from an elderly couple who could no longer care for him. So, we are down to our three boys and what joys they are. They are such fun to watch and how each has his routine that MUST be followed or they won't co-operate!! You can find all of their pictures in my photo album on my Spark page.

It is so nice to be here with all of you and I look forward to getting to know you better.

Hi. My husband is away to sea and I have filled my house with babies. First came Bitsy from a Texas rescue. She is 5lbs, 4 years old and my little princess. 6 months later came my wild child from Oregon, Zena is 4, 10lbs, and beautiful. I became a foster parent for the shelter that saved Zena. They placed Zorro with me and I fell in love with an 8 year old biter. He became mine for Christmas. Currently have Crystal and Howie to spoil as they wait for their forever home. I would be lost without my house full of chis. emoticon

Hi Di! Welcome, welcome to the BEST forum on SP. It's gotta be, right? We're all chi lovers! :-)
I also lost one of my babies at 8 yrs. a couple of years ago. It was a total shock, no sign of any troubles. Just died one day. I'm still missing him sooo much. I have 4 of them, I just LOVE chihuahuas!
Join us in our daily "chat" area. We'd love to hear all about you, your baby, whatever you want to chat about or just to say "hi" and keep at those daily goals.

Hi All,

I am new to SP, just started the first of the year. We have an adorable little Chi named Diego. We got him just 2 months ago from a lady that had to give him up...he is our "baby" and I can't imagine what we were doing before he took us in!

We lost our Chi Rocky in October from Lymphoma...he was only 7.5 years and we loved him dearly.

I am loving this site so far, I'm tracking my food and I've just joined a gym with a trainer. A first for me and so far it is great!

Di

Welcome Annabelle (belated)- I'm bad at getting here- and welcome Osunny. I also raise chi's- just a litter or so a year. Just for fun, but I DO have GOOD babies. My vets have actually told me I am the best breeder they have there, my babies are always healthy, happy, and good tempered. I've even sold 2 to one of the office girls! I always say "Once you're owned by a chihuahua there is just no other dog out there as good!!!"

I think you will find this to be a very supportive team. We may be few in number of participants who are active, but we are a friendly and supportive team.

I hope you come and chat with us often.

I am not really new.. I am back though! I proved that I can't do this without solid support. My husband is an enabler and I can't lean on him to help me get it done. In fact, I think he tries to sabotage my efforts; like inviting me to take him to McDonalds for breakfast.

We also raise Chihuahua's and do our best to make sure our babies are pet quality. We have two litters to adore right now.. My, they are adorable!

Hi everyone! I am not new to Spark but just returning from trying something else for awhile. I have one chihuahua-Rockford. He will be 3 next May. He came from a litter that had been dumped out in TN. His was the third litter that had been found in less than 6 months. My parents got one from the first litter they found and my sister got one from the second. After the third litter was found, I just knew I had to get one. When they found his litter, he still had his umbilical cord attached and his eyes were still closed. My sister sent me pictures and I just fell in love with him. It took some convincing to get my husband on board with a dog in the house(my husband got to name him) but now he loves him probably more than I do. He really keeps us entertained.

~Annabell~

Hi, I'm Marianne and I've struggled with my weight for many years. I have two chihuahuas - 9 year old Creamy and 6 year old Happy. Both are long-haired and were bred by a good friend who passed away a few years ago, giving me one of the dogs first. We loved Happy so much, we bought Creamy from her husband. My husband and I always thought we'd stick with large dogs, but these two have definitely stolen our hearts. They fit perfectly into our RV when we travel. I joined SP two months ago and am grateful for the advice and community spirit.
