Chihuahuas are wonderfully spirited little dogs full of love and energy! Anyone who knows them can tell you how lively their personalities are. I have 5 chihuahuas, 3 of which are puppies. Susu, Ginger, Cori, Fen, & Cinna. I'll be sharing my thoughts here on everything from health issues, to food, to fashion and fun for the small dog.

I hope you enjoy the blog, leave me a comment and follow along!!

While the main dog here is the Chihuahua, I believe the information here is valuable and entertaining to any small dog owner.

Time for Monday Mischief again!!

Well as you can imagine, with 5 little Chihuahuas in the house sometimes there is a lot of competition for the Monday Mischief post and this week I have 2 very mischievous boys to tell you about!!  

Fen had the Mischief of the week title locked up on Wednesday with a smooth move that just couldn't be beat!  I think I'll just let the pictures tell this story...





Poor Cori!!  Bad timing got him a face full of dirt!!


I think Fen was just too busy digging to notice though.. 


But little Cori just shook it off and went on his merry little way.  



But then of course, Susu decided he wanted to be in the Monday Mischief post too!!  So Thursday I came in from Christmas shopping after work with a child to 5 little cuties and the usual mayhem of dogs bored all day.  

Rounded everyone up and into the yard for some much needed playtime.  And then rounded everyone back in.  Now let me tell you a little something about Chihuahua puppies.. no matter how many times you move puppies there are still puppies in the way.  It's a special trick performed simply by being puppies when there are 3 of them.  

And then I spot this little thief!!


On the desk, hiding behind present bags eating a hushpuppie leftover from Jordan's lunch!!  So of course my natural reaction is to grab the camera!! LOL  

Hope you enjoyed the laughs and the mischief as much as Susu enjoyed that hushpuppie!

Christmas Chis have extra FUN!

Merry Christmas everyone!!  We had a great time and It's been awesome having the extra time off to enjoy family and the dogs.  I thought I would pop on and highlight the Chihuahuas Christmas!! LOL  They had a great time!!

They played under the tree when they're not supposed to!



They helped Jordan with her stocking!!


They played with their new toys from Santa... 





And some of Jordans..


They played with their Doggie Mom


And then after breakfast and a good play outside they all got dressed up in their Christmas clothes! 

Susu
Cori
Fen
Cinna
Ginger


And then it was apparently Chihuahua nap time because they all fell asleep looking sweet as can be!










And a Merry Christmas to all and to all a Good Night!!

Christmas came early for the Chibabies!

The Chis got their best Christmas present a bit early this year.  A fence.  Yep!  Bill put in a fenced area for them and they just love it!  It has really made our lives so much easier too and now the puppies can play outside and get some much needed exercise and fresh air!

 The little ones were a little timid at first but it didn't take them long to start exploring and having a great time!



Fen took to the great outdoors pretty quickly!


Cinna thought everything needed a good chewing and tasting!



Cori was really hard to get pictures of because he took to running as fast as he could but I did get this one of him having a rest and well doesn't that happy face say it all!


And of course Chihuahua puppies love a little sunbathing too!





They all had a great time and it is awesome to watch them all out playing every afternoon!!

It's Monday Mischief at The Charming Chi!

Now, I know what you're thinking!  How could such an angelic little perfect face be capable of any mischief??  And I agree!  I really really do!  BUT..  My sweet little Cori baby and his needy 'slightly' spoiled self is getting me into trouble!


He loves his Mama and he only wants to be held and loved and be the true little lapdog that he is and these are wonderful ideas and very sweet but at 4:30am????  At midnite????  
Seriously???  





I propose a law making it a 
punishable offence if I have to 
deal with puppies or poo 
before my coffee.



So it looks like I have created a spoiled puppy monster!  hahaa.. Yeah..I'm sure no one saw that one coming!!  

So I'm a bit sleepy today and am already daydreaming about going home and snuggling up for a nice nap with my sweet little Cori baby..

El Caliente Chihuahua Salt Pepper Holder Figurine
This little Chihuahua figurine has a sign hanging around his neck that reads “YOU WANT SOME OF THIS?” He is sitting between 2 dishes (1 blue, the other a yellowish orange) that hold the salt and pepper shakers.

 This one is really cute but I think he would look happier if they would put some water and kibbies in those bowls!
