chihuahua's love heals owner from mental illness

dear famous chihuahua®,

this is my gorgeous little chihuahua puppy, princess-saphire. she is 6 months old and my savior!

i got princess-saphire from a reputable chihuahua breeder when she was only 12 weeks old and since then we have been inseparable. she comes with me everywhere and snuggles with me in bed every night.

this year has been rough as i suffer with a mental illness and was admitted to a mental health ward. i’ve made great progress, but in the last 3 months since i’ve had princess i have made the biggest improvement! her unconditional love gets me through those difficult times. i am so lucky to have this amazing chihuahua in my life!

little princess loves to go for walks, but she also loves going out in her designer pet carrier or dog stroller. not many people in england use dog carriers and strollers so i do get some funny looks sometimes when we are out, especially when they realize its a chihuahua!

princess-saphire is a very pampered pooch that get’s what she wants when she wants so she definitely lives up to the name “princess”. i love that she can fit into fashionable dog clothes for tiny girl chihuahuas and look extra beautiful!

i feel blessed to have my sweet princess-saphire in my life.

    Hello from Vancouver, Washington USA.

    Rachael.. Your Princess-Saphire is soooo adorable. How precious! My little Chihuahua name Hunee looked just like that when she was a Puppy. She is now 4 years old and still my little Baby. My Hunee girl helped me get through heart surgery… and made my recovery much faster She even visited me in the hospital. That is just wonderful your Princess is helping you get better too…Your Princess must love you very much. Take good care and speedy recovery. <3

    That is such a great story. After I adopted my chihuahua I didn’t know how I was living my life without her. Enjoy your Princess.

    One of my nicknames for my Chihuahua is “Six Pounds of Therapy”. She certainly is.

    What a great story!

    My little chi’s name is Angel…that’s exactly what she is. I suffer from severe depression and PTSD and Angel is also my savior! She’s such a big help and my best friend and soul mate. She’s now registered as my service dog and can go everywhere with me. I also suffer from Agoraphobia and without her, I’d never leave my house. She’s as spoiled as they come and I wouldn’t have it any other way…she sticks to me like glue:)))

    Very sweet and very true. Chihuahuas are blessings in our lives. I don’t know what I’d do without my angel. Wishing you the best in your recovery!
