I adopted a 6 lb chihuahua from a rescue organization about two weeks ago. How can I celebrate living with with this
I have already received a little flack from a couple friends for my "purse dog." I sort of get where they are coming from, I have been soaked in the same culture of girly things are frilly and impractical and dumb and tiny dogs are certainly girly and who are you? Paris Hilton? and whatever, but two weeks with tiny dog and I am thoroughly convinced that purse dog life is fucking awesome
. I can pack her up and take her pretty much where ever. She either sleeps or follows me giving me tiny calf licks or goes in the tote like a champion. She is so far shy but tolerant of strangers and other not huge dogs.
So, what is there to do with tiny dog that I maybe have not thought of? I have read conflicting things about the amount of activity tiny dog can sustain, so I'm interested in what others have done with the toy breeds in terms of activities, exercise, trips, special tiny toys, etc.
What gear do you have for your tiny dog that makes everything better?
Have you taken your tiny dog on a hike? How far can they go?
How do you decide when to pick them up vs let them battle out life at the 1ft off the ground level?
Any links to training materials/ideas you found especially helpful?
