my name is franzisca and this is chloe. she is a 2 1/2 year old short-haired chihuahua-mix. we got her in hawaii, but we now live in northern chicago, illinois. chloe is special to me because it was love at first sight when i saw her. my husband didn’t even want a small dog, but then she started pulling on his pant leg and her feistiness won him over. she was so tiny then that she fit into the palm of my hand, but even as an adult, her loving and feisty character remains.
chloe was inspirational to me as she motivated me to put my dreams in motion and become a dog obedience trainer. i achieved my goal and today i take great satisfaction in saving other dogs lives. i absolutely love my job. she also motivated me to go into agility training and now she’s on her way to getting her first title.
in addition, i discovered another passion of mine, sewing! i started my own little online business in which i dedicated to her. it’s called, something special – chloe’s cute knits. i offer customized clothes and accessories for dogs as you see chloe modeling in her pictures. you can find us on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/SomethingSpecialChloesCuteKnits
chloe has shown me the world from a different perspective. she never showed fear and went for new adventures that were offered to her, i admire that. she lives with 3 other dogs that are much larger than her and she is holds her own like a rock. her fun and mellow character allows her to adapt to her environment. she will always be close to my heart and a dear treasure in my life.
congratulations franzisca, your sweet chloe is now a famous chihuahua!
here is lucy’s story as told by her mommy, julie clitheroe from kelowna, british columbia.
as a child, i grew up with dogs, but it wasn’t until i got a dog of my very own – my very adorable lucy – did i fully understood the unconditional love a dog can give. lucy makes me smile, laugh and want to snuggle with her all the time. she is only 10 months old, but has developed her own fun, playful personality that draws a ton of attention to us wherever we go!
lucy can be full of energy one minute and then all snugly the next. she started playing fetch with her stuffy toys the first day i brought her home and she loves to be outside.
she is a very smart little girl and learned how to sit and stay at a very young age. she also knows the difference between “watch the house” and “do you want to go for a car ride” to which she runs down the hall to the door. I can drop a morsel of food on the floor and she will waits for me to tell her she can have it, so i never have to worry that she will eat something she shouldn’t.
my sweet little lucy is always attentive, always loving, always licking, digging and hiding her biscuits …. I simply love and adore her to pieces!
congratulations julie! lucy is a famous chihuahua!
