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.

Welcome to The Charming Chi Awards Ceremony!

My new schedule at work has left me behind in a few things and one of them is passing on Blogger Awards.  It has really been a wonderful surprise how encouraging and supportive other pet bloggers have been to my new venture here at The Charming chi.
This blog has actually received a few awards over the past month and I really wanted to take the time to type up my acceptance speech and pass the awards along!!

So I have a little extra bling on today for the occasion and a bit of chocolate so it feels more like a celebration!  Of course I'm sure the Chis are busy making confetti while I'm away so they are certainly in the festive spirit of things too!!   

A Huge Huge Thank you to Patrice and Higgins from The Adventures of Higgins for the Pawsome Blogger Award and the Liebster Award.  Patrice has been so wonderfully supportive of my efforts here and has been a great encouragement to me.  <hugs> Thank you so much Patrice!!!  And if you have stopped by her blog in awhile you really should because Higgins is a cutie with a larger than life personality and you are guaranteed a smile when you visit!!

And Thank you so much to Mary, Roxy and Torrey from Roxy the Traveling Dog for awarding me the Pawsome Blogger award!!  As a 'new' blogger it's easy to get discouraged or feel like no one is reading.  The comments and support from great friends is just wonderful and so appreciated!!  Be sure to check out the latest antics of an awesome dog at Roxy the Traveling Dog!!
