How to hold your Chihuahua
Hold me, Keep me safe, and Never let me go
I have started teething, so I like to have my gums and teeth rubbed and a hand to chew when I am on my back. I have been trained to gently chew on your fingers as a way to bond with you. However, sometimes I get carried away, it is never on purpose.
Here are some rules to help you out. Keep your fingers from getting underneath the big teeth. They are there for ripping and tearing flesh, and I don’t want to do that to you. The best place is the space behind my big teeth. Another thing, tell friends not to pull their hand out of my mouth quickly, it will throw me into ‘hunt/prey’ mode. I will bite hard and not feel guilty. If your fingers are tender, small chew toys or pull toys are great to pull out of your pocket and give to me.
Besides caring for my Chihuahuas, I have interests in gardening and preserving foods from my garden and the local orchard. I am also interested in cars, specifically Volkswagen's. When I have spare time, don't laugh, I like to sew and read.
