It is very simple. I love dogs and I like people who love dogs. So I have dedicated a part of my blog to our furry friends who bring love and joy into our lives. And since I own a Chihuahua, I will try to break some stereotypes about this world’s smallest dog breed. If you love to travel and love dogs, then you are definitely in the right place.
Some of my reviews also include pet-friendly advice, so it’s kind of logical to introduce my furry sweetheart. Sky is a 4 year old longhair Chihuahua and she lights up and brightens my days. She is one of the reasons I miss my home so much when I travel and welcomes me with unbelievable joy every time I come home. She has never been on a plane with me, however she is always my companion on daily trips and shorter destinations.
ONCE A CHIHUAHUA, ALWAYS A CHIHUAHUA
Sky is my second dog. I got her one week after my first Chihuahua died of a fatal attack from a bigger dog. That was one of the saddest moments of my life. His name was Ali and he owned a big part of my heart for 7 years. To fill in the terrible gap that Ali left in every corner of our house and every step on my way, I decided to get another dog immediately. And there was no doubt in my mind it would be a Chihuahua.
I checked the ads and there was a litter of 3 furry angels with the best looking mom and dad in the world. I visited their owner on the same day and I played with them for 2 hours. She probably thought I was crazy because I was crying and laughing and crying and laughing all the time. We agreed I would take the boy (other 2 were females) since I was used to one and I wasn’t ready to take the responsibility for the cubs every year. Hell, I can hardly take care of myself 🙂 After one week when I came to pick up the boy, the little white baby girl with brown ears came to me and started licking my hand. She was licking me so intensively, as she was fighting for her life. My heart melted instantly and in 10 seconds I made up my mind: “You are coming with me.”
And this was the best possible choice I could have made. I had already picked the name Sky for the boy and I decided to keep it for my girl as well. It is a bit confusing for some people, so I bought her a pink collar just in case. (Actually that is a lie – I am obsessed with pink, so it was the only option). We have been inseparable since the first day and it breaks my heart every time I have to leave her. But when I travel, I always leave her in safe hands of my best friends and I know she is well taken care of. I am uploading her photos to my Facebook album: Sky all the time so you are welcome to meet her there. Or visit my Chihuahua corner category from time to time – I will do my best to post some news here as well.
Gotta go now, Sky wants my attention! 😉
