  3. ^ Just after Kochie said that he said something about Paris Hilton 'starting the trend' ...of what? Owning a Chihuahua? A seemingly healthy - if somewhat unfotunate - normal sized dog? She didn't own a *teacup*, if memory serves!
  4. Lint roller (the sticky sheets one) in handbag, one in car and one in dresser drawer. Going to get another one for mum's car. cat + dog hairs on every article of clothing. More pet toys come home with me from shopping trips than things for me. adn I've only had pets for about a month!!!
  5. My husband's brother and his family have two shibas. The eldest, a white boy - is good. Fairly well behaved, self-sufficient, confident dog. The youngest, a red girl - is so silly! Even at 2 years of age, she is such a puppy. Naughty and slightly dumb, according to her family. Totally adorable, though They like to kill small animals too. Leaving them on their owner's doormat. I knew them both as puppies, and to be honest they have retained pretty much the temperament they had at a few months old. Two very different personalities, from the same breed - and in fact they came from the same breeder!
  6. My Bertie (Chihuahua) prefers laps to feet. The kitten, however...will sit on feet if given the chance. Trouble is, at not-quite-7-weeks he is so tiny and weightless that he is often in danger of being booted across the room because we don't realise he's there
  7. I just today noticed how rough my 11month old Chihuahua and 6.5/7 week old kitten play together. Bertie (Chi) bats kitten quite heavily with his paw, kitten doesn't seem to mind... Besides, kitten has plenty of hiding places Bertie can't get to. Even when kitten has had enough and arches back/swipes at Bertie, claws are in. Very proud of the tiny kitten!
  8. Edited to actually answer the question. I wanted an inside dog, and a small one. I actually looked at a few breeds (CKCS, Papillons...) but chose Chihuahua in the end. Also spent a lot of time talking to an interstate breeder/shower of Chis who turned out to be a wealth of knowledge and helped me greatly - actually still is helping me! Even though I went through a local breeder for my Bertie. One day, we will own a CKCS, a Papillon, Beagle, mini foxie, Westie, GSD,... all my fave breeds.
  9. My mum (while sad at my being injured...) would definitely take Bertie if something happened to DH and me. Otherwise, DH's brother would, or the breeder would take him back, or another breeder friend of mine.... Bertie is a popular dog I hate seeing notices for dogs who have to be rehomed due to owners dying or being injured sufficiently to no longer be able to care for them. It's very sad for all involved.
  10. Nah I'd say the whites are blown completely on that. As others have said, shoot in raw and lower your ISO and exposure comp. in daylight conditions.
  11. As much as I can, I want to socialise my Bertie, with dogs, cats, people, whatever! However with a little Chihuahua, extra care is definitely needed, and I will always be cautious around new people and pets. I believe it is good for him though, and he was very interested in watching a friend's staffy/bull arab digging for China at the beach yesterday - so I'll keep trying.
  12. I posted a topic about it before, first pic of new dog. Taken with my Nikon D700, Sigma 50mm f1.4. No idea what settings, as it was still whatever I set it all to last night at a shoot.
  13. He's 11 months old, from a breeder.
