We've been wrestling with Loki's excessive barking, and can't seem to deter it. He barks at everyone and everything when he's outside, and when he things he hears something outside, he barks his head off inside. We've tried noise aversion, removing him from the stimulation, treating good behavior, and all of the other methods we can find. It may be time to try a citronella collar. Anyone have any other suggestions?
The biggest news however, is an upcoming addition to our puppy pack. That's right, another dog. Most people think we're mental for having three Chihuahuas, and I know we'll get flack for a fourth dog, but the truth is we love them to death and find them a total joy. We have more than enough time and affection for our dogs, and their our main source of entertainment.
The new dog's name is Ziggy, and he will be arriving from Texas via plane on Friday evening. He's a two-year-old Chinese Crested. That's right, not another chihuahua, but a Chinese Crested. We think Crestie's have a wonderful personality that will go well with our Chihuahuas. And this boy has had a rough past and deserves a loving home. He's battled heart worm, and possible physical and emotional abuse while he was with the breeder he came from. The family that has him now in Texas loves him very much, but due to personal reasons, can no longer keep him. We're very touched that his Texas family has agreed to let us adopt him.
Here's the photos we have of our new boy:
Isn't he fantastic? He'll be here on Friday, and we can hardly wait. Once he arrives, I'll be posting photos and updates as to how he settles in. Wish us all luck!
