Update: Rest in peace my beloved Truly--she passed away on 5/20/2017. I can hardly look at these photos even though it's been almost a month.)
I could have had a Chin a long time ago, but I had a list of "requirements." I have known two other champion Chin bitches and they set the standard for me. All Chins are not alike. Frankly, some are weird and many of them are ugly. I gave my long-time friend and well-known Japanese Chin breeder Nanette Wright my list and she really came through! I also want to thank co-owner Patricia Mushrush for allowing me to have this neat little dog.
In case you are wondering, I only wanted a small, square, black and white female that could finish her AKC championship with a lovely head and to-die-for personality. Kind of picky of me, but I did tell her to take her time...we picked her up the day after Christmas last year.
The photo at right shows her fabulous, "typie" head, complete with the white showing in the inside corners of her eyes that "surprised" look that is a vital breed trait.
I have known hundreds of dogs, but this one takes the cake! She is dainty, yet will play hard with the yorkie until they are both out of breath. She isn't pushy, but she will let you know when she is getting impatient with the lack of results. She has only really barked a couple times (while tearing around playing), but she will "talk" to you. She eats everything in sight, even if it's not food, but will stand forever deciding if she will take the bait while showing her. Usually puppies get over chewing, but this gal will leave a path of destruction behind her (except she doesn't "do" toys..)
Now she will jump into the box below the cage and steal them. If I move the peanuts up top, the parrot just tosses them down to her!
This is how she spends the rest of her days...if you can't find her, look for the softest place around! You may notice a pattern...

Well, it's time for her snack, so I must go...
Until next time...
