Smallest Chihuahua in the World?

Smallest Chihuahua in the World? I read today in the British newspaper the Telegraph online about a really tiny Chihuahua bred in Yorkshire, England. Lulu (pictured above) is only four inches high at nine weeks. Her owner, Jean Tindall, who has bred Chihuahuas for most of her life, says she's never seen a smaller one and won't be selling her even though she's had a lot of interest in the tiny puppy. Have you come across a...

Operation Chihuahua!

Operation Chihuahua! The numbers of Chihuahuas turning up in rescue centres across the United States since the release of the movie "Beverly Hills Chihuahua" have reached crisis point. The problem is particularly bad in California where it has been dubbed the "Paris Hilton syndrome". In December twenty-five Chihuahuas were flown from Los Angeles to New Hampshire to be rehomed. Forty more are being prepared to make...

Farfl the Charity Chihuahua

Farfl the Charity Chihuahua In a couple of weeks' time I'm doing a benefit comedy gig in aid of Gilda's Club Toronto - a charity named for Gilda Radner which supports cancer patients and their families. Before Christmas we had the photo shoot in front of the famous red door of Gilda's Club. I took Farfl along and she ended up being in all the publicity pictures (check her out on the far left)! It was a fairly brisk day so I...

Chihuahua advanced training graduation

Chihuahua advanced training graduation Right before Christmas Farfl and her fellow chihuahuas graduated from their advanced training course at PetSmart. Click on the title above or the "more" link to see all the great pictures of her displaying her advanced skills! Before they could earn their certificates the three chihuahuas had to be put through their paces. The first exercise was a sit stay. The dogs were all put on long leashes...

Farfl starts an all-chihuahua advanced training group

Farfl starts an all-chihuahua advanced training group Tonight Farfl had her first all-chihuahua advancd training session at PetSmart. I've been looking forward to this class for months - and it didn't disappoint! There were just three other dogs - Bobby, a very bouncy and friendly little chi, Mac, a long-legged cutie-pie with a barking problem and Charlie, a very shy fawn-coloured Taco Bell chihuahua. Julian was our trainer this evening - I've seen...

Best Chihuahua pet carrier I’ve ever seen!

Best Chihuahua pet carrier I’ve ever seen! I'm lucky enough to be going to London, Ontario next year for a couple of months to perform in a theatre play and Farfl's coming too! I'll be travelling between London and Toronto mostly using the train so I've been searching high and low for a good bag to carry Farlf in. Her hard-sided carrying crate is a bit unwieldy to shlep around with a suitcase! All the carriers I've looked at have been too...

Farfl in the park

Chihuahuas may be small....but they sure are mighty! I worked really hard with Farfl to socialize her as much as possible with dog of many different breeds, sizes and energy levels to make sure that she would be as confident as possible wherever we went. And it certainly paid off! Here she is off-leash with a couple of other dogs at our local park. Unless she is surrounded by many dogs she...

Best chihuahua snowsuit ever!

Farfl's snowsuit arrived! [Show as slideshow] Click on each photo to see it full-size. A...

Chihuahua birthday pictures

Chihuahua birthday pictures This week Farfl celebrated her first birthday. I guess I can't describe her as a puppy anymore..... Although her birthday was on Monday we really celebrated on Sunday when I took Farfl to the Toronto Chihuahua meet-up at PawsWay. Farfl won third prize in the fancy dress competition in her taco costume that I bought at Bloomingtails. We had a lovely time - there were plenty of games and it was...

This week’s cute chihuahua picture!

This week’s cute chihuahua picture! The weather in Toronto has been amazing recently - cool, but sunny with blue skies and fantastic autumn leaves in the trees. I've been taking Farfl out in the afternoons - it's too cold in the morning and the evening and she simply refuses. So we go for a long walk after lunch - usually about an hour - and finish up in the park where Farfl loves to chase and chew sticks....
