I am a proud boy mom of 3. Alvin, Valentino, and Tiny. Alvin is the oldest. He will be turning 13 at the end of September 2020. He’s a chihuahua-min pin mix. He’s been through a lot, we both have. When he was 6 months old he broke a leg and was in a cast and we’re really lucky that his leg wasn’t amputated. Then when he was around the age of 4 he went on an adventure for 7 whole days. I thought I was going to die. I jumped through some hoops which is a story for another day and ultimately got him back through a post on Craigslist. Over a year ago he was diagnosed with diabetes and consequently went blind; we have been watching his diet and giving him 2 shots of insulin a day ever since.
Alvin has the most unique markings on his front paws and on his back. The markings on his back look like zigzags. We get compliments everywhere we go.
*The Halo was not for him. I thought that it would help him not bump into things but it didn’t work that well and he didn’t think it was comfortable.
This is Valentino. He was born on valentines day, hence the name, and he is a Shiba Inu. He is 10 years old and he’s short for his breed. He’s just the sweetest though. Shiba’s are Japanese hunting dogs. they’re usually independent, like to be by themselves, and kind of aggressive. But not Tino.
This is Tiny. He is the youngest of the bunch. He is a Chihuahua-Pomeranian and literally the most loving and needy dog of all time and you can just tell in that smile…
These dogs are like my kids – some of the best family I have ever had. I’m hoping to share with you some tips on managing a pup with special needs and managing a group. It gets expensive and time consuming. But we love them so we do it.
