Don’t read this letter to the Puppy!
In terms of size, they ranged from “horse” to “does anyone have a magnifying glass?” There were two of the tiniest Chihuahuas I’ve ever seen, and they were spot-on adorable.
When I got home, I told Dad I thought I wanted to adopt a Chihuahua. Dad thought that was an excellent idea as long as I didn’t want to be married anymore.
So it looks like I’m not going get to a teacup-sized puppy.
- They eat less. The smaller the dog, the smaller the food bill. Economical!
- They poop less. Less in, less out. We call this digestive mathematics.
- They have no idea they’re small. Little dudes tend to have big-big-big personalities and little to no fear.
- They can’t reach the counter. No need to worry about what’s sitting out on the kitchen island because teeny legs can’t get them up that high.
- You can carry them around easily. No matter how strong you are, it’s not easy to carry a Newfoundland around all day.
So basically, little dogs are kind of like smaller than average people. Bright, entertaining, and in need of step stools.
