Hi, I'm Kandice! I live in Texas and am pretty much owned by 3 Chihuahuas, 2 Labs (both I'm sure are mixes) and a cat! ..I wouldn't have it any other way though, I absolutely love spending time with them all day long. I take care of a few kids at home, all who can't wait to get to my house to play with them. Honestly, I take care of a little girl and her brothers.. I've had her since she was 5 weeks old so she grew up with my two youngest Chi's.. and my cat, Bella. One of her first words was 'Bella'. I taught her well! Anyways.. They are all my world, without them I think I would be lost.

My three Chihuahuas are the first purebred animals I've ever had. We've had many, many dogs and cats throughout the years.. but they were either dropped off or we found them and 'rescued' them from whatever trouble they were in at the time, or could have been in.

Camo is my oldest, he's five years old.. and he means the world to me... he knows it too.

Kami and Malley
These two are littermates.. born January 7, 2007. We had a very rough time with them for awhile.. Or I had a rough time.. Camo is their daddy.. Their mommy died when they were only two days old. They weren't intentionally bred, I thought that Kali was no longer in heat but later I found out that she had, had a split heat.. that made me to believe she wasn't in heat. Kali was my girl, she meant so much to me that it killed me when I lost her. For months I cried daily.. and to this day I still have her pictures up all over the house and think about her all the time. I was definitly irresponsible, and it cost me my girl. Anyways, I had to bottlefeed both Kami and Malley.. it was rough especially after losing their mom, but they kept me going. I was going to give one of them to my mom, and she was going to take the girl.. but I couldn't let her go. They are such a mess but I wouldn't have it any other way.. they too, are spoiled rotten!

Kami is the firstborn.. she was blue, but she's getting a little darker as she gets older.

Casey..

She was found in the summer of 2006. My husband found her in the middle of an intersection as a little puppy. Someone ahead of him dropped her off and ran. Needless to say, he couldn't leave her and brought her home and she has been a WONDERFUL addition to our evergrowing family. We had a time with her at first, but she's such a great girl.

Bella...
She was found about a year and a half ago.. under a womans car, she wouldn't move, so yet again my husband brought her home.
She's a wonderful cat, she is an indoor/outdoor cat.. but she stays in our carport for the most part.. sleeping on the cold concrete, never venturing from our yard.. and never staying outside for more than 20 minutes..

Hunter Man!

Hunter is actually the reason why I'm here. My husband found him while a guy was giving quite a few pups away.. Hunter wasn't in the best shape, and one of the littlest guys there.. he took one look and said he wanted him. We had been talking about another dog, but we had settled on getting the pick of a Maltese litter.. but you couldn't take him away from me now. He's one of the best dogs we have ever had.. and he's (estimated) 4 months old. He has the best temperment of a Lab mix that I have probably ever been around, so calm and relaxed all the time.. unlike Casey.

He's the last addition we will be having for quite awhile..

wow they are beautiful!, im kim from montreal and Im new on this site also. Its a great site but not to sure how to navigate through it yet. I was actualy thinking of adopting a chi... I think there the cutest and even if there small they have huge personalities. My dogs are all goldens and all adopted, but I know they would get along great with smaller dogs. where in texas are you from?? Ive been there and loved it , I have probably spent more time in the states then in canada, have you ever been here?? montreal is probably one of the greatest citys in the world, also how did you get your pics up on here I want to do the same but dont know how , love to send pics of my babys too!! any way keep in touch. kim

Welcome Kandice!
You sure have some beautiful furbabies. Those Chis are too cute!! And your labs are absolutely beautiful. I am sure you will find lots of helpful information on here, I know I have in the short time I have been a member so far. :pawprint:

Thank you both very much! I'm very proud of my little bunch.. they are all the best dogs..

Have you ever owned a Chi before? They're really the perfect breed for my family.

I'm from East Texas.. Longview, I love it here. I've been to many places, but I have never been to Canada. I bet it's beautiful there!

I actually am looking for some information.. or to see what some thought about my Lab mix Hunter.. actually could be mixed with.. I should take some new pictures tomorrow, the pictures of him above were taken two weekends ago but he has grown quite a bit since then.. he's looking more and more like he has some dane in him, so I've been interested in finding out more.

Thank you! I agree. And really, most of the best dogs and cats I have ever had were 'adopted'.. either they 'adopted' me or I did them..
