    I'm another Chihuahua lover. I've had two of them and they were both very sweet and well behaved.

    I would so love to see that discussion!

    I'm in the contingent of folks who hate the intentional breeding of designer dogs and the subsequent success of puppy millers. But to rescue a mix from a shelter or rescue is a wonderful thing. Sammy must have been a happy accident, because he's too poorly put together to have been an intentional breeding, even of mixed and questionable parentage.

    Sorry I can't help reply to the chug thread, I agree with others, each dogs may be different.
    I think it's wonderful that you are going through a shelter to get your next furbaby.

    Now Alice, don't you dare stick Miss Tessie in this thread, she needs a thread all of her own and a bigger photo!

    And I doubt this thread is getting much attention anymore, but I want to add that yes we have to watch what we say, but we also need to learn to accept people have opinions, they may differ from ours, they may hurt our feelings, even if not meant to, but we must let it roll and move on.
    Do you know how much I now cringe when I hear someone say "That's retarded", but I know they are not making fun of Carter, it's just life, and we have to let some things go.

    Photo circa 2008!

    A general thought about that r word, 'retarded.' I have found the most comfortable response is, "He learns differently and at his own speed." Try dropping that on them.

    I agree, but I stand by my original reply. Moving on now.

    Folks,

    I meant no offense, and I apologize if my words came across that way. Please accept my apologies.

    I love dogs. I'm just not a fan of that one breed. I was trying to be funny, but in my attempt at humor, it came across very poorly. Again, I do apologize.

    Appology accepted! I don't know you but I assume the best and don't think that you would purposely try to offend me (or any of us). Thanks for stepping up and appologizing anyway!

    I thought that was the case! I kinda' doubt you have a mean-spirited bone in your body. Next time use one of these - :wink:!!

    Apology most definitely accepted!

    Same here; no hard feelings! Yes, those winks go a long way into interpreting comments which can so easily be read in many ways.
