A new member of my Kristin Wallace

If my eyes look a little baggy it’s because I have a new baby. Only this baby has four legs and fur. I have a new puppy; the first dog I’ve had as an adult. I have to say it’s kinda like dealing with a toddler. 


Meet Cocoa…my Teacup Chihuahua. 

It’s been on my mind to get a dog for a while. I’ve been living in my apartment for years and technically not supposed to have pets. But I decided a small dog might not be noticed. At first, I thought about getting a French Bulldog or Boston Terrier. I checked the shelters and there weren’t many small dogs. 


Last week I talked to someone who had a couple of Boston Terrier puppies. I made an appointment to see them. The puppies were barking their heads off and already looked larger than I wanted. But next to them was a tiny brown puppy. I thought it might be a miniature pincher. 


Nope…it was a 5-month old Teacup Chihuahua that probably weighed 2-lbs soaking wet. She was quiet and shaking. I asked to see her and not much later I was taking her home. 


Even though she’s 5 months old she hasn’t really had any training. We’re working on potty training, her bad biting habit, letting me put her collar on without a meltdown, and the fact that the “shy” act is a bit of a put on. She is a good sleeper, thank goodness. Only gets me up once in the night to go to the bathroom.


But she can be super sweet and there’s nothing better than her little warm body snuggled into my neck as she sleeps. The little grunts and grumbles she makes are so cute. She does this funny little hop when she’s excited. She loves carrots, chasing balls, and playing with a little fuzzy chicken. 


I think we’re gonna have a lot of fun. 


Tell me about your fur-babies!
