The one thing that separates him from most Chihuahuas is his huge-ass apple head -- his head is so round that I've received numerous exclaims from family members and friends. There's baby P-nut in the photo above (far right) sleeping with his sister and brother.
She was so tiny and was scratching non-stop. We had her confined for a few weeks so the Vet can remove the hernia and heal her mange. The Vet said that she is also slightly blind in her right eye due to neglect, and because she was never groomed her hair might have irritated her eye. Up close, you'll notice a white circle similar to cataract.
When she was finally returned to us, she was so gregarious and so happy! She kept stealing our slippers and gnawing on things. We were overwhelmed, it's been a while since a puppy graced our humble abode.
Five years later, she looks like this (she is so artistahin):
Don't be fooled by that "look", she is not so behaved in real life *wink* And she knows how to wiggle her way out of tough situations, like the time when she was caught pink-handed.
We are huge animal lovers, my Papa used to have guinea hens, geese, ducks, turtles, seahorses, fishes, etc. at our ancestral house in Mindanao. Needless to say, I grew up with animals around me. Why, I even have hermit crabs at home (check out www.ilovehermitcrabs.com). This is why whenever I watch/hear news about animals being neglected or maltreated, my heart bleeds. Adopting or buying a pet is a huge responsibility, it's like having kids! Once you have a pet, you should take care of it for life and treat it like a dear member of your family.
There are numerous advocacies and organizations that look out for the welfare of animals. In the Philippines we have CARA and PAWS who are staunch defenders of animal rights.
