People like to say “awww, how cute it looks like a squirrel.”
I am used to it. But people like to underrate this kind of dogs. The say mean things like “lap dog”, “bag dog”, “rat”…
So I just wanted to tell you some facts, you probably din’t know about Chihuahuas.
1. Did you know that Chihuahuas can walk very fast and very far? Chloe and I always walk up to 1.5 hours a day.
2. The Chihuahua has one of the largest color combinations of any breed
3. The Taco Bell Chihuahua was actually a female.
4. The Chihuahua is one of the oldest registered dog breeds. The Chihuahua became a registered breed with the AKC in 1904. Whereas the AKC was only founded in 1877. (http://www.akc.org/breeds/chihuahua/index.cfm)
5. The Chihuahua is named after the Mexican state of the same name.
6. Most dog lovers know that larger breeds tend to have shorter lifespans.
Since Chihuahuas are the smallest breed, it should come as no surprise that they can live up to 18 years. In fact, the oldest Chihuahua ever died a full 20 years, 265 days old, and was named “Megabyte”.
