We’re so proud of Rita and how she’s adapted to her life as a blind dog and for how well she’s adapted to the changes we throw at her. I’ve always had dachshunds and the ones I’ve had are headstrong, determined and not very cooperative. I had never had a desire for a chihuahua and, from what I had heard about them, their tendency is to be snippy little barkers.
While I still am not sold on chihuahuas, Rita is the best dog we’ve had.
She does not like to be held but since she can’t run around at my uncle’s due to being aggressive to his dogs, she’s ok sitting in her bed in the chair with me or on the sofa with Vince.
Last night she was sitting in the chair with me and it’s a small chair so she was kinda crammed in her bed and never could get comfortable. We kept laughing at her positions but then Vince sat down on the sofa so we were able to move Rita and her bed over to where she would have a bit more room.
Even with all the hooping and hollering, she slept through it all.
