    You have to be secure in your masculinity to hang with a chihuahua. I've held a few chihuahuas and I wonder how fragile they are. I remember their legs feeling like pencils.

    i love my chihuahua mutt...but i don't like the big voice she unleashes occasionally.

    loud and yappy....otherwise, wonderful pets

    too many people place their sense of identity and masculinity....well, you know the rest

    My mother in law has had a few over the years.

    One in particular hated me with a passion from the first time we met, don't know why, cos I like dogs.

    One day it made its one and only mistake, after a prolonged yapping attack aimed at me, it turned its back and started to walk away..... I sent it skating across the floor on its nose, I didnt kick it....but it was a very big nudge!

    We were friends after that.

    The Chiwawa is not in New Mexico. The Pecos, the Chama, the Embudo, the Rio Grande are all in New Mexico but the Chiwawa is in Washington State and I jumped on it in a kayak by myself about 10 years ago. Not too difficult, and no bears in the water:

    I guess I did about 15 miles of it. A couple of little rodeo spots, but the water was FREEZING.

    There was supposed to be a weir, just downstream of where I took out. I wasn't clear about whether I could get by it, whether I might need permission or something. Beyond there, the Chiwawa flows into the Wenatchee.

    There's no reason to live anywhere and not be able to spell a word when there's Google. I mean, you're already online for gawdsake. Google it!!

    First, mispronounce the name on purpose...

    "Cha-Hu-Uh, Hu-Uh." Then, you can always remember the spelling!

    Always 'say it' like the bold print, and you will remember the spelling-take my word for it! :D

    A friend of mine down the block has two long-haired Cha-hu-uh hu-uhs :p and yes, they're territorial, but once they know you and like you they're just the nicest dogs I've ever met. They are really affectionate…

    Well Chihuahuas have been on this Continent, and in your area, since at least 300BC. There are life size pottery of them, found in ancient cities, dated back almost 2400 years. One of the oldest domesticated dogs in the world, with a very strong history on the American Continent LONG before Europeans ever thought of stepping foot over here.
    They are cool little dogs and you should be more respectful of the heritage they have in your area and learn to spell and pronounce it correctly.

    There's quite a bit on this thread that's offensive, the starting with the tittle, first post, and others that followed.
