Choosing a Vet

Choosing a Vet The right vet makes all the difference. When I was doing my research on chihuahuas I started looking for a decent vet. I needed to get a vet anyway since our cat, Jessica, had started to go outside. Jess spent most of her early life as an indoor cat - we got her from Toronto Humane Society when she was about a year old. She had already been declawed at the front and spayed. When we moved this...

Farfl Has a New Friend!

Okay, this is ridiculously cute. I took Farfl to my girlfriend's house last week. The girlfriend, in fact, who inspired me to get a chihuahua in the first place. Her little chi is called Gem and is an absolute sweetheart. I had read in several books on chihuahuas that they get on best with their own breed. But I had no idea if this was really true...Gem was a bit hesitant when we first arrived at...

Farfl’s Chihuahua Store Goes Live!

Farfl’s Chihuahua Store Goes Live! Great news at Farfl the Wonderdog! It's taken me a long time to build (sorry for the brief hiatus in blog posts),  but finally the website has a store dedicated to all things chihuahua! If you really care about your darling chi then you, like me, spend hours trawling the internet for everything your chihuahua could ever need: coats for cold or inclement weather, boots to protect their tiny feet...

Farfl and the Couch

Farfl is really easy to entertain. Right after she finished taking the monkey to task it was time to teach the couch a lesson. Don't mess with this chihuahua puppy - she can take you all! One of the things I love about Farfl is how playful she is. She's learned pretty quickly to play gently with humans and other animals, but not with inanimate objects, upon whom she unleashes her full wrath. Heh...

Farfl and the Monkey

Farfl has a new toy - and it's a monkey! Farfl is indeed a fearsome chihuahua. Witness how she takes down this naughty monkey and shows him who's boss in the latest Farfl video. That poor monkey never stood a...

Farfl Digging Indoors

It's hard to tire a chihuahua out when it below freezing outdoors. Which is why it's great when she can find a game that expends a lot of energy while doing no damage to herself or the furniture. Here's a video of her digging indoors. She seems to get a lot out of it and it doesn't do much damage to the fleece liner to her crate. I don't let her do it for too long - I don't want it to become an...

What is a Miniature Teacup Chihuahua?

What is a Miniature Teacup Chihuahua? Just what is a mini chihuahua? If you have ever looked through the classified ads for a chihuahua puppy you will see the expressions "teacup chihuahua", "teacup tiny chihuahua" and "mini chihuahua" bandied about.  But what does it mean? What's the difference between a teacup chihuahua and a regular chihuahua? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. There is actually no such thing. A chihuahua is a...

Farfl Attacks a Chicken

I don't know what this poor chicken ever did to Farfl It was a Christmas present from my Dad and Farfl the chihuahua puppy loves it. She is not intimidated even though it squeaks and is bigger than her. She chases after it and then bites it in a painful looking place... There's something pretty funny and twisted about where she bites the chicken. Well, I'll let you judge for yourselves... Like I...

“The Puppy Whisperer” Book Review

“The Puppy Whisperer” Book Review Did you ever buy a book and think: "I wish I'd had this book before I...."? Well, that's pretty much how I felt when I picked up and read a copy of Puppy Whisperer: A Compassionate, Non Violent Guide to Early Training and Care. I took a quick look inside before I bought it and thought: "What the hell, I'll give it a try." I started reading it yesterday and I just finished it - what a fabulous...

A New Harness – A New Attitude!

A New Harness – A New Attitude! Farfl was having problems with her nylon harness. A few days ago I noticed a clump of hair was stuck in the plastic clip of Farfl's harness. I took it off her and, sure enough, there was a little bare patch of skin on her side. She scratches at the harness and shakes it all the time - at first I thought it just was taking some getting used to, but this morning when I put it on her and she yelped...
