Long Hair Chihuahua Love

I have had long hair Chihuahuas for the last 15 years. Before he went to Rainbow Bridge, I was blessed to have Lucky for 13 years and now I have Nico, my 2 year old rescue. They are such wonderful, devoted animals. Here's some information about the breed from the American Kennel Club. Graceful, alert and swift-moving with a saucy expression, Chihuahuas are highly intelligent and should not be underestimated even though small in size. The breed can be any color – solid, marked or splashed and the coat may be long or short. 
A Look Back
The Chihuahua’s history is shrouded in mystery, but some believe he originated from the Fennec Fox, a very small animal with big eyes and ears, which could explain the tiny frame, luminous eyes and large ears on the breed today. Chihuahua’s were used in religious ceremonies and were pets to the upper class. The breed derives its name from the Mexican State of Chihuahua, where the earliest specimens of the breed were found.

Chihuahuas are alert dogs with terrier-like qualities. They are good with families if the children are gentle and patient. Because of their small size, they require little exercise and are good city dogs, but can be sensitive to cold temperatures. Long coats need occasional brushing but still require minimal grooming.

I did not know that! We have never had a small dog..and have not had any dog in many years because of some family allergies. These are just darling and I really like the looks of the long hairs to the short haired variety. I am so glad that you have a "baby" to take care of- xo Diana

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright
violation? My blog has a lot of exclusive content I've either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help stop content from being ripped off? I'd definitely
appreciate it.
