For over 27 years, we’ve made countless families happy with our adorable Chihuahuas. Below you can see screenshots and emails that I’ve received from happy customers over the years. I am creating a second Testimonial page I will place my 2009 to 2021 references on. I plan to have the new page up and finished by end of year.

I hope you and your son are feeling better.
Zoey is doing wonderfully. We just love her to pieces. She was at the vet’s yesterday and we learned that she weighed 2 pounds. I can’t believe it. We’ll send pictures soon. Thanks again.
Date: 9/17/2005 7:00:04 PM
forgot to mention, she had to go to the bathroom and she went directly on the pee pad like a good little girl. I’m so proud! Thanks for taking such good care of her.

Hello, I just wanted to let you know that Stuart is doing great. I took him to the vet yesterday and he got his shot, but he didn’t provide me with a stool sample. Tomorrow when he goes my vet said I could just bring it in anytime. I feel so lucky to have gotten Stuart, he is a sweet heart and is bonding with everyone in the family very well. He is even doing very well with using his wee wee pads. Thanks you so much!

I was wondering if you still have the puppy picture of Darla (now named Skye) so that I can print it out since I didn’t save it. I will send you a current picture of her soon. Also, do you have her pedigree or does that come from the AKC?
She has the sweetest, cutest, greatest personality ever!!!!!! She is absolutely beautiful and I named her Skye because of her gorgeous eyes. She is very healthy and eats a lot! I love her so much!!!!! I am very glad that I bought her.

GREAT! She is so lovely and precious. She’s certainly the smallest of the bunch, but she has such a strong and confident little presence.
Thanks for two such wonderful dogs. Two pics attached for you.
Subject: Rebekah :)Freaky Friday
Date: 7/20/2006 10:17:29 A.M. Pacific Daylight Time
I just wanted to send you a quick email to let you know what a wonderful puppy she is! We have renamed her Lola (Freaky Friday was cute, but a little too long). She has the best temperament of any dog I have ever seen, and she is just beautiful! Jeremy and I have been taking her everywhere with us, and she is great with people. Almost everyone stops to pet her when we walk down the street; it takes a really long time to get anywhere! I’ve also had a lot of friends tell me that they don’t usually like Chihuahuas, but that she is amazing, and now they want to get a Chihuahua (I’ve given several people the name of your website). Lola also gets along very well with other dogs. One of my roommates has a Pug, and Lola follows her everywhere! Since the Pug is moving away at the end of the summer, we are already discussing getting another of your Chihuahuas for Lola to play with! I hope everything is going well for you and your puppies, and I will be sure to send you pictures of Lola!
PS: I’ve also included several pictures. In the first picture we are trying to teach Lola to wear clothes, since it gets so cold in the winter. But as you can see, she doesn’t really care for them. The second picture is Lola sleeping in my lap. And the last picture is of Lola and I cuddling together.

Subject: Referral… and Update on Angel (Birdie)
Date: 8/17/2006 10:36:48 P.M. Pacific Daylight Time
I wanted to let you know I was at Petsmart with Angel (Birdie) this evening and was stopped by someone who wanted to get a baby just like her (but with short hair). I gave her your website address and told her to look you up because you have the most adorable puppies AND that you are awesome about caring for them and socializing, etc. I told her NOT to buy from a pet store! So if you hear from someone who lives in Irvine or possibly Tustin that’s the girl (and her mom). She is about 17… I didn’t get her name, but she was very excited that I gave her the information.
Also, I wanted to send you a picture of Angel sleeping in her little bed. She is 9 months now and weighs in at 3.2 pounds. She is such a good little girl! She is very attached to me and loves to play. She is finally getting spayed tomorrow. I didn’t feel safe taking her until she reached 3lbs for some reason. Even though the vet told me he’s done smaller puppies, I just wanted to be safe.
Anyhow, here is the pic… It was taken on my cell phone so it’s not super clear, but it’s still super cute! (it’s also attached just in case)
This next one is from her second day home back in March. She is wearing a little sock. So cute! Back when she weighed 1.6 lbs. Can you see the size difference?
Date: 2/16/2006 5:56:25 PM
I just want to say that you sure have the most beautiful puppies. I LOVE how you show the newborns from birth to the updated photos. Is’nt life just so amazing !
You, your family and friends are amazing breeders. I am so fortunate to have gotten my puppies from you. Keep up the awesome work…your website is one of the best too!!!!
Date: 2/13/2006 4:02:18 PM
Hi Debra just wanted to let you kow how his vet check went. All looks great clean bill of health and normal stool sample. Got his 5-way while we were there and the vet was great about just the very simple 5-way. No lepto, corona, or any of those other ones. He is handling it fine. He weights 1lb 12oz. He is just sleeping now resting up from the shot.
Subject: Re: Felix…..(Coby)
Date: 1/28/2006 11:04:18 AM
He is doing great…a little slow on the house training although I watch him like a hawk. He sleeps with me every night in his bed and waits till morning to do his business at least. We named him Coby or my daughter did. He is very healthy and happy. No worms or problems. He loves to tease the cat and lets us know when some one is at the door. He is a little winey when he does not get his way but not at all yappy. Although he has tons of toys he manages to drag in more toys in from out in the yard and makes a pile. He likes his possessions where he can see them all. He is a hoot to watch.
I sent an attachment to view.

I just wanted to send you some pictures of Ramsey. He is so adorable! You would be surprised by how many compliments he gets in one day! I could not be happier! He is my everything, I absoultley adore him. Thank you!

Date: 12/9/2005 2:16:31 PM
Just a little update for you on Baby Cocoa, I’ve been so busy I haven’t had a chance to let you know how she is doing: Wonderful. She is so sweet, she just loves to cuddle and sleep on us. And she is SMART; she already learned how to climb out of the porto-crib, we’re going to have to do something else with her in terms of confinement. She is also fearless. She already runs up the doggie ramp to get on the sofa with us, I had to teach Buster with biscuits, but she did it all by herself.
Her health is fine, her fecal came back negative and her appetite is very good. She is just so cute, sweet and affectionate, we LOVE HER! She loves to cuddle with me in bed. At night I let her cuddle with me in bed for about 5-10 minutes until she relaxes then I put her in her bed and she just goes to sleep and sleeps all night, only waking up when Kevin wakes up at 5 am. She only whined and howled the first couple of nights then she figured out we weren’t picking her up, and quieted down, so she learns quickly. And she does really howl, she tilts her head back and let’s it rip, for such a tiny little thing she sure can put out the sound. Here’s a little picture I took of her that I used for baby announcements.

I wanted to let you know that we got Jar Jar (now known as Gus) home safe
and he is happy and playing and just the most wonderful dog EVER!!! Thank
you so much for raising such a fantastic puppy and for being so kind to
me. I just wanted to thank you from the bottom
of my heart for this little boy!!!
I just wanted to tell you how great Lucy (Sundae’s sister) is!
We went to the vet on Saturday and she did great!
She is using the puppy pads in a litter box very well.
She discovered her bark yesterday while playing with one of her chew toys.
She looked so surprised, it was hilarious!
My cats are no longer nervous around her and everyone seems happy!
Thank you for everything and have a very Happy and Safe Holiday. (nn)
Date: 12/19/2005 1:53:13
I just wanted to write and tell you how very happy I am with my precious Lucy! She is so very sweet. She is just fantastic! I take her just about everywhere! She loves going for car rides and now she walks very nicely on a leash. We are having lots of fun exploring fun dog activities and meeting new people. Especially now that her puppy series of shots is over. We’ll do rabies in February 2006. She’s been to my parents’ home with me about four times and just adores my mom and dad. She loves laying on the floor and getting a tummy rub! She also loves chasing my oversized Maine Coon cat, Casper, around the living room for 10 minutes!
I’ve switched from the wee wee pads to dog litter (the paper pellets) and she’s doing great. It was a gradual switch, which I think helped the transition. Now all that remains is slowly granting her more freedom to move around my house. That too, will be a gradual process.
Everywhere we go, she’s a head turner and just soooo very sweet. Thank you for everything you put into her before I brought her home. You are the best!
Happy Holidays! Ngozi

We are totally in love with our new puppy. We have changed his name to Romeo, and he is starting to know it. I took him to the vet yesterday and she said everything looked good.. Anyway, he is a loveable, and happy. He loves to snuggle when he sleeps and when he is awake he loves to play. I was wondering if I could have a little more time with his registration. Christmas is coming and I haden’t planned on spending that much on a new puppy. Please, don’t take that the wrong way, we couldn’t be happier with him and he is worth every penny… Also, I asked my vet about neutering him and she prefers to wait until they are 6 months, is that to old in your opinion? We just don’t want him to start lifting his leg or anything. At what age do you change their food, and what do you change it to? Thank you so much for Romeo, we love him.
Thank You, Jennifer

Good morning Debra,
How are you? I hope things are calm and without the drama makers in your life.
I’m thinking that it is time for new pictures of sweet Melissa. A week has gone by already. Amazing…:)
How is she doing?
Do you have an estimated time for shipping Melissa?
Pretty little Leia is just fine. She is very playful, smart, loving and I think she will enjoy having Melissa here once she adjusts.
I hope you have a great day!

He is here finally (delayed quite a bit by bad weather in Houston). You were right– he’s very very cute. He’s been wagging that tail since the first second I opened the crate door. Thank you.

Re: Lucy & Gracie
awww. so sweet. I am glad it is working out. Can you tell me a little more.
How do they get along? Do they sleep together? Are they jealous of each other?
RE: Lucy & Gracie
Date: 5/6/2006 11:15:32 A.M. Pacific Daylight Time
Actually, not much jealousy. I feed them at the same time, but in separate areas (I do put Lucy’s food down first), so there have been no problems there. Lucy does get a little antsy when I am petting Gracie…she tries to jump between Gracie and I to divert my attention away from Gracie. Lucy has been a great example for Gracie when it comes to walking on a leash. They are too cute when we go for walks and I get so many people stopping us to ask about them!Lucy and Gracie do love each other…they play very well together and I think Gracie has learned the “enough” command, for when playtime is over. All three of us sleep together at night. Gracie likes to curl up near my ear and shoulder…Lucy curls up near my hip under the blanket. Gracie is learning the potty routine in my house. She is very good with the litter box in a confined space, i.e., playpen; I just need to slowly allow her access to more of the house as she becomes for comfortable.
I am so pleased with Gracie. She has been a perfect addition to the family.

Date: 6/20/2006 5:05:56 P.M. Pacific Daylight Time
Everything is great! We received her with no problems. She was very mellow and content in her crate even after a long day of traveling. The three of them (we named her LuLu — plus Tino and Jax) are all getting used to each other. She has a very sweet and playful personality!
Thanks for checking in… I’ll email pictures soon.
Date: 6/20/2006 9:00:16 A.M. Pacific Daylight Time
Thank you so much for following up. He is absolutely wonderful. We named him Chopper. He bounces around and prances everywhere. He gets along fine with the cats and is happy as can be. He has a tear duct problem though that I am hoping the antibiotical eye drops the vet is having me use helps; if not, they may have to flush out his tear ducts.We love him! He is so playful and fun and he’s a big snuggler at night. I take him almost everywhere and he seems to enjoy it! He gets in his travel bag by himself now when I tell him we’re going. He’s so adorable I can’t even tell you.Thank you, Debra.
Compliment from Vet Nurse
Date: 9/23/2006 10:51:06 A.M. Pacific Daylight Time
I went in for a check-up on Teddy Bear (Lord) and the vet nurse asked me, “Where do you get your Chihuahuas from? We see lots of Chihuahuas in here, but they’re never as cute as yours!” She also went on to compliment their temperaments compared to other Chihuahuas she sees. She said Angel is such a sweetheart and Teddy has been such a good boy too. I told her, “Yup, I have the best breeder!”
Thanks for everything!!

I’m not sure if you remember me, but I bought Goldie (we named her Lola) from you in September of 2004. She has been wonderful and perfectly healthy and happy! Here is a picture of her…
Anyway, I wanted to find out about George (Wonka). Is he still available? Is there any discount available for returning customers? How big is he? Is he ready to go now (like this weekend)?

Just wanted to give you a quick update. Baby, now known as Pixie, is doing great. She’s such a sweet little girl but, like you said, very demanding. She definitely knows how to get what she wants, which is usually a snuggle, and in my house she has plenty of volunteers.
We had a breakthrough yesterday in her housebreaking when she actually did both forms of business outside. She’s not crazy about the grass, probably because in some places it is taller than she is, but she made us proud by doing her thing. By keeping a close eye on her, we were able to avoid any accidents in the house yesterday. Yeah!!
As you said, she’s definitely not timid. We have a pretty good sized house and she has no problem exploring. She and our Aussie play wonderfully together. It reminds me a lot of the video on your site. She runs up and bats him with her paw then turns around and runs away. He just sits there and takes it. Very cute.
Pixie has her vet check on Saturday but I’m certain she will check out fine.
Anyway, I’ve got to get some photos with our family so I can send them to you.
We absolutely adore this puppy and are so glad we got her. I can’t wait for Jenny to get Sterling on Friday. She’s going to bring so much joy!!

We named the puppy Rosco.. we usually call him Rossie, he has been so happy with his big brother!! He follows Clyde everywhere and Clyde follows me everywhere so they both just prance behind me all day 🙂 He’s still in his baby play pin, it’s one of the portable ones from Babies R Us, and I’ve been super impressed with his appetite! His tongue still sticks out too it’s adorable, and he is teething like crazy! Everyone just goes crazy over him! Dave and I think it’s so funny that he was the shy one of the litter, his personality has definitely come out and he is learning how to bark even though its the tiniest one I have ever heard! Thank you so much again for making the whole experience of getting a new dog so great. I definitely hope to get a third someday!! I may e-mail you regarding vet health( NU-Vet) or whatever else.. thanks again
Date: 10/23/2006 7:09:35 P.M. Pacific Daylight Time
He is doing great!! The timid display of behavior in the beginning has completely gone away. As a matter of fact I have taken him to work several times and he is the hit of the day. One of my staff members calls him “yoda.” He loves it and he waggs his tail at everyone. Our admin assistant holds him for hours and he sleeps on her lap. He is extremely spoiled.
The vet loves him and kisses him when he gets his shots. The kids adore him and even my husband likes him and he was not too keen on having an indoor dog. Our hound dog likes him too.
Now the cat is a different story. She is okay with him but she prefers to sit up high on the couchand look down at him. Over time she will adapt to him.
He has a very kind disposition and everyone that meets him loves him.
Date: 10/24/2006 11:31:51 A.M. Pacific Daylight Time
Hopefully I’m doing this right. If I did, you should have a recent picture of our girl.
Lil’ Lexie Sterling is a wonderful girl! She is up to 2.97lbs and is completely healthy. She loves to laze in the afternoon sun, belly up, of course! She runs like a bunny rabbit, hopping all over the yard and running in crazy 8’s!! She also loves to cuddle on my lap while I’m on the computer or lay on Nicholas’ chest while he watches cartoons. She gives out lots of kisses too.
We are so grateful to Katie & Rhonda for passing on to us your web site. We still look at it every few days to see how all the babies are doing. Keep doing what you are doing and I’m sure you’ll have a return customer in us some day!
Thank you for sharing a piece of your Munchinkland with us here in Miami!

Just found the camera so here are some Pics of the Girls Fairy and Thumblina. Some are just of them. One I think is of My Daughters Boy Friend with both of them on his shoulder watching TV . As you can see They are starting to like the Men around here. LOL. They Beg to get up on his Lap then to his Shoulders. Shameless. LOL. Lindsey says he has that effect on all Females. LOL. The Other Pic I think is of them sleeping in their toy basket. They have chewed it up a bit. I took them out in the front yard today to see how they liked the grass they had a blast. They have had the 2nd round of shots no problems. Everyone just adores them. So much fun. Thank you so much for the little Angels. I will send more Pics later. Thanks again.

Hello Debbie, this is my baby girl Johari she’s almost 7 months by now, and she’s 2.20 lbs, and I want to thank you 1000 times again for her, she’s a blessing, got a great temper, learns fast, and she’s gorgeous. Everybody loves her, she’s the main attraction wherever she goes. Thanks for being a wonderful breeder before and after the adoption, I’m specially grateful because you provide health and care information long after the sale is done. I don’t consider myself your customer but a friend.!!!

This is Diana just dropping you a line to let you know how the girls are. They are wonderful. Fairy is such a love bug. I am having to teach her to many kisses can get anoying.LOL. She insists on cleaning every inch of your face every time you pick her up. She is a fast learner.
I am so glad we kept them together Baby is coming along so beautifully, She doesn’t run when I try to pick her up. She just scrunches down and lets me. The Boys in the house have been working with her too. She is such a good dog.
I changed her name because if her sister was out of site she would cry and whine until she came back. Baby is not the adventurer her sister is. Fairy will go anywhere at anytime. And Love anyone. It is so cute when Fairy tries to get sister to come on an adventure. Every time Fairy goes off baby cries Fairy runs back to check on Her. This goes on until either Fairy lures Baby out or Baby lures Fairy into the Puppy House. Fairy usually wins. Fairy is one of the smartest dogs I have come across in a long time. I am so happy with these Girls. Thank You so much for them. I am so glad I waited till I found You and Your Babies.

Yes, we were able to get our baby and our paper was soiled and ripped up. I do have the other paper work for the other puppy. Would you like for me to send it you? No, United did not give us an explanation as to why there were late. All I know is that they left Sacramento around 8:45 p.m.
We are very happy with our baby. We named him JAYLEN and he is so beautiful. He likes to be hand fed. He’s so full of energy. He’s always jumping around and the other night he discovered the closet mirror and thought it was another puppy therefore barking at his home image and running back in forth. We just got a kick out of watching him. He has his 1st vet appt. this afternoon. As soon as I get some good pictures I will send them to you. The pictures we take now are not good ones because it’s always some holding him which covers most of his body.

I wanted to bring you up to date on how Sam is doing. We have re-named him Rudy (Rudolph Valentino). He has completely made himself home here. I work for attorneys at home and he lays on his baby blanket on my desk while I am working. Within the last 2 weeks I have started taking him outside as it is now starting to be beautiful here. We have a large fenced in backyard and I sit on the lawn and he runs and runs and runs. He is now up to 2 lbs (as of 4 days ago) and during the night he sleeps in his large kennel next to our bed. We placed the kennel on a big chair so that he can look out the kennel and see us. There is no whining he just goes to sleep in his baby blanket. During the day when he wants to sleep is goes to his round and burrows under the baby blankets and goes to sleep. He is getting potty trained and has only had two accidents. He is the best thing that could have happened to me. Thank you so much ~ Bonn

I’m upset because I took my little zebra finch in as she had clicking in her chest. They gave her something for mites by injection and I think they overdosed her. I lost her. I am really sad.
Swan didn’t eat much yesterday, so I am worried about that. If she does not eat today, I will take her in. Also, I went to sign her up at beginner’s class at PetSmart and they told me her records showed she did not have a rabies vaccination. I took her in for one March 15 so I canceled her teeth pulling for March 19. I saw the x-ray’s on your web site. So cute! I had a woman come up to me and she said she has two Chihuahuas but they don’t look like Swan. She said “what a beauty”. All of your dogs are so gorgeous. How are you doing?

Haven’t forgotten about you. Just haven’t had much of a chance to use thecomputer lately (had 742 emails when I looked today–yikes).
I would be happy to sign the guest book.
Just a Lacy update. She’s healthy with no sign of any eye problems including third eyelids. You were right about her having a fantastic personality. She’s not afraid of anything and her new best friend is our biggest chi (the first one we got before Katie–not one we got from you). They are a real Mutt and Jeff. She’s so funny playing with him because she will start growling and nipping at him to initiate playtime. He’s so gentle with her (neutered too so strictly a platonic relationship.)
Anyway I’ve got to run but will write you more over the weekend. Thanks for everything once again.
he Good Life!

Hi Debra! I just returned from a trip to LA with Ruby to visit my daughter at college and here we are relaxing at Malibu Beach. Notice her pink bag, when she sees me getting ready to go somewhere she jumps right in! The other beach pictures were taken while camping outside Santa Cruz. Ruby’s first camping trip and she had a blast! She is so fun and easy to travel with. So many people come up and want to visit with her. She’s a cutie and so well behaved, she’s such a joy in my life. I hope all is well with you and all your pups. Patty

Debra– I just saw your guest book and wanted to let future customers know that you raise the best babies. I searched many web sites and local papers for a little Chihuahua and happened to come across your site. When I saw the pictures and information on the puppies, there was no hesitation on getting one of your puppies. My baby, Beluga, was a joy from the beginning- from the airport to his new home. I’ll definitely keep visiting your web page, because someday I’ll get another puppy from you. Sincerely, Melissa 😉

I just thought I would give you an update on the pups. I took them in last week for the last set of puppy shots. Rocco has surpassed Bella and weighs 3lb, 4 oz. Bella weighs 3 lb, 2 oz. Rocco looks a lot bigger to me than just 2 oz. more than Bella. Our Vet is pleased with their weight gain and how well their coat is looking, especially Bella. Her back is getting a lot of brown coloring in it. I am also noticing it on her ears as well. Deb, my mother and I want to commend you for the marvelous job you did with raising and socializing these two. They are just the sweetest puppies. They have assimilated to our family very well.

Hi, I just wanted to update you with some pictures of bella (snow white) … her and gizmo my other other dog are the best of friends, here are some pictures that are too cute for words.

Attached is a recent picture of Pixie (Baby) with our Aussie, Monty. I don’t think she was too happy about wearing her dress. Maybe Monty wished he was wearing a dress because he looks pretty sad too. You may notice the shaved legs… we had a slight bug spray incident, thank goodness Pix is a healthy, hearty girl. Tomorrow she’s going back to the vet to be spayed. I’m a nervous wreck but know she will be in good hands. I think Lexie is starting obedience classes soon and I’ll probably get Pixie registered once she recovers.Love all the new babies on your site. Thank goodness we already have ours because I’d be hard pressed to choose from all those beautiful little faces.
All the best in the New Year,

She is doing GREAT!!!!
She slept most of the night. Woke up around 3:ooam and winpered a bit. I sat
with her and she ate some food and drank. Then went back to sleep. She woke
up again at around 6:30am.
She is eating and drinking well.
She went poop…. about 3 or 4 times already. It looks pretty solid. A bit
soft…. but not runny at all.
She is eating a lot, so I am sure that is making her have to go.
She loves to carry all her toys into her bed one by one. It is so funny!
The Well Puppy Vet Check…

Debra,Everything went great at the vets. WeeJee (that is her new name) has gained
some weight! She weighed in at 1 pound 14 ounces! They said her ears, eyes,
and temperature are all normal. She had her 5 way shot, and they are doing a
fecal exam. We should know tomorrow….

No she did not give her the Lepto (they said they don’t give that
anymore), and she did not
give the Corona. We did wash her feet as soon as we got in the car. We have
antibacterial wipes. She was washed off, and all her blankets were put in
the wash when we got home. We have a lot of blankets for her.
We are being very careful with her.

Got the fecal results back. They said no organizims or parasites seen.
The activity on Saturday was work related. As a police officer, we have
constant training on weapons, law, etc… I am an instructor.
Thanks for the advice.

Well, he is now a year old and is doing very very well. We have one week left in his intermediate obedience class and he is a shinning star learning so well. He is still just as happy and healthy as ever. I just wanted to let you know how very happy I still am to have purchased my little boy from you. His temperament and health are A1 I don’t think I could have done any better. He has maxed out at about 5lbs and is a perfect size for me. He travels well and is my constant companion, which of course I love. I am just so happy and love him so much that I cannot thank you enough for breeding such wonderful dogs and allowing me to adopt one. Every day is better because I have him.
Thanks again so much Debra he is wonderful. I have attached a current picture of him for you.

The labels on the items- will be- B.B.Faith Designs.
Stands for Brewser, Brianna, and Faith.
The History of the name will be the story of how Faith came into my life,
with a handicap. Watching her, so happy…and how it takes her so much more effort to do things like walking, just tugged at my heart. I love my dogs so much, that I want to dedicate to making beautiful items for
Chihuahua’s. Thanks to Debra my Friend and Breeder of the most beautiful dogs in the world.

I have been wanting to tell you about Ruby!!! She is the most precious baby on earth! She goes everywhere with us and is very attached to me, although she loves everybody. She loves going out on our boat (we go to McClure almost every weekend), wears her little life jacket, she goes camping which we do alot, she goes with us in the canoe at Pinecrest, she stays in hotels with me when I travel and loves to be carried in her little bag when we go shopping – She gets a lot of public interaction as well since she is with me often in her bag as I am walking through crowds, etc.They get together in a park in Milipitas once a month which would be really fun to do! Ruby is such a great little traveler. Our other female Lola is her very best friend, they play all the time! As you can tell I just can’t say enough about how much I, and all of us, Iove this little dog. She is everything I wanted and more. I have the most respect for you Debra for breeding such a wonderful, good natured, smart and lovable little dog. She is SOoooo affectionate. I bet you have brought this kind of joy to a lot of people with your wonderful little chih
Frosty ( FLOWN TO FAMILY)
Date: 8/26/2007 6:17:16 A.M. Pacific Daylight Time
It was great talking to you last night. What a nice person you are.
Frosty made it just fine, and was anxious to get out of the carrier at my end. I brought my folks along with me and mom held him all the way home. He was so good. It was about 20 minutes after his flight landed that they brought him up to me, and they said all the guys unloading the plane were talking to him, and he was very responsive to them, and to me. He was so interested in the traffic lights coming home he was content just looking out the window.
What a loving little guy and he is just beautiful. Just what I wanted. When I got home, I put him in the puppy pen while the others were all out so he could get used it everyone who was so nosey they had to check him out. He wanted out, so I let him out for awhile for him to look around and get used to the smell of things. At bedtime, I put the puppies in their bed, but stayed up for a few hours to make sure they wouldn’t hurt him. He took to the other two just fine, as they did him. He’s climbing on them this morning, playing with them, investigating his new surroundings. I think he is going to be just fine. He is just a sweetie.
I want to let you know that Alaska airlines was very good. They had fresh water and made sure his food dish was full. He was kept warm, and watched the entire trip. They took good care of him.
I will be sending you updated pictures once in awhile so you know he is happy and cared for. Hope you don’t mind if I keep in touch also. You seem to be very knowledgable about these puppies and I will trust what you tell me.
Thanks so much for my new addition. He is just beautiful, personality plus.
Have a wonderful week

I just wanted to let you know that we changed Chinadoll’s name to Miley. I also wanted to tell you that this little 1 ½ pound puppy has brought so much joy into my family’s life in one day! She loves our 13 year old cat, Timone. My other Chihuaha, Clay, is not quite sure what to make of Miley yet!
Miley is sweet, mellow, yet goofy and funny too! My daughter, Sophie, adores her, even my husband took a puppy tongue bath on his face and ears!

Deb,I just wanted to check in and let you know that Emmy (snow princess) is doing wonderful! She is such a joy to have in our home. She is a very healthy, happy, well adjusted little girl and I know that comes from your amazing breeding. She is a wild child! You can hold her, if you can catch her, lol. She loves to play with her toys. She often plays tug of war with our other chihuahua Chico. It’s pretty cute! Chico is her favorite person in the whole world. He’s pretty attached to her as well. We just bought her pet stairs so she can get up and down off the couch on her own. She likes being up where she can see all the action. She is always aware of what is going on. She always knows if I’ve moved something in the house because she barks at it. She doesn’t bark much though. Generally she barks at Chico when she wants to play. She gives kisses. She likes getting kisses. She is completely potty trained. If you yawn she puts her paws in your mouth and her ear up close so she can figure out where the noise is coming from. She cracks me up! She is still pretty tiny. She weighed in at 2.11 the last time I took her in. Her color has changed quit a bit. She is now a light tan on her top side, her neck and socks are still white. She has a spotted belly. The pink spot that was on her nose is now black. I will have to send you some more pictures. She is absolutely beautiful! I can’t thank you enough for her!

Dear Debra –
How are you? This is Shannon I just wanted to say hello and let you know how much we love her! Instead of smiling for the camera she chose to lick Austin’s neck, as you can see. She is very loving.
We took a seven hour road trip and she sat on my lap the entire time – happy as a clam! She never made a sound, nor did she ever want to get off my lap. Precious little dog. Thank you! She is a gift. August 30th she’ll be one year old. The vet took out nine baby teeth when he did the spay – she had two rows of teeth! Stubborn baby teeth just wouldn’t come out on their own.
When I go to work I fill a baby size Kong toy with some Iams wet food and freeze it. It keeps her busy and she loves it when she sees me going to the freezer before work. She uses her doggie door religiously. The only time we ever hear her whine is when all her hiding places are taken and she can’t find a spot to bury the toy she is holding. It is very funny. I make her a new spot and then she is fine. Usually it ends up being a blanket that I lift up for her. So funny!
Well, I shall let you go. I just wanted to send a photo your way and let you know how happy we all are together. Again, thank you for the calm and healthy chi! — Love, Shannon

hi there. just letting you know nina’s doing great. shes about 90% pottypad trained. it was so easy. i could tell that you worked with her cuz shes doing so good with it and its only been two weeks. shes so playful with my other chi yet she lays on my lap so still and just wants to sleep or be petted. i really cant believe how small she really is.
could you please tell me what shots she should have now? im confused on what she should have next. shes going back to the vet 3wks after her 3way shot and i dont know what she should have. after reading alot of your info on vacinations, it kind of scares me to give her a rabies shot. i dont know what to do. can you help me. and should she ever have a corrona and lepto and bortdeall and giardia shot? thanks brenda
Subject: Re: nina (darling)
Date: 10/17/2008 2:42:09 P.M. Pacific Daylight Time
So when 3 to 4 weeks have gone by you need to give her a 4 way
Then you can wait for a few months and give the rabies by itself No CORONA or Lepto. Also if your vet says puppy needs Lepto then ask her which serovars types you have in your area. If you have types A and B and the vaccine she has is only good for types C and D then it is not worth the side effect risks and ineffective for your area.

I just wanted to check in and tell how beautiful your puppies are. You can definitely tell how amazing your quality is compared to other breeders. I have a friend who bought one from a breeder down here and she is nothing like the baby I got from you. Even though mine is smaller, she has more energy, she is healthy, and she has a great coat. I have to tell you I am completely in love with Ebony and Wall E. You are doing a wonderful job breading. Emmy is doing great! We had her spayed a few weeks ago. She did great! At 7 1/2 months she is only 3.11 lbs. I can’t wait till Halloween so I can send you some pictures. I got her a pink bunny costume. It’s a little big, but maybe she’ll grow into it.
I’ll talk to you later,
