His real name is Chulo. He is my Chihuahua. I have another one whose name Chiqui but I will write about her in a different post when it’s her birthday too!
Chulo has been with us since 2011. He fathered a lot of Chihuahuas in the past but now, we have separated him from Chiqui because we already have four doggies in our 3-bedroom apartment. Any addition would be a riot!!!
He is my first-born and he used to sleep with us in the bed but now, he has his own space. He has become quite independent living with his son Chrypto.
We became instant parents when he came to us. We have learned how to love and care for such a tiny being — he has prepared us for Brooklyn who up to now gets jealous of Chuchu! Imagine that?
My husband takes care of his meals with care and thoughtfulness. Chulo lost two of his teeth that’s why it’s hard for him to chew. My husband patiently grinds chicken heart and liver mixed with minced beef to replace the ones we buy from pet shops, although he would still eat the commercial dry food provided that it’s been steamed a bit so it’ll be softer.
We will be celebrating Chuchu’s birthday tonight! I hope he will be happy! 😀
