The Bug told me one day that she wanted a Chihuahua. I, being a very proud non pet owner, told her that Chihuahuas bite peoples ankles and pee on their legs. This is not said to insult the breed as a whole, but to allow Bug to come around to my way of thinking. And it worked.
Now, Bug has new neighbor friends, little girls across the street. She spends a great deal of time there, and with their little dog Millie. Who happens to be a Chihuahua. She hasn’t ever had any issues with the dog while she is with them, and isn’t the least bit nervous about Millie.
But this morning we were walking to school, and Millie was outside with the mother of the home. Millie wasn’t on her leash. And what did she do? She proceeded to run up to us and chew on our ankles.
And now my point is well proven.
