What Everybody Ought to Know About Mexican Chihuahua Dogs.

This is the way it was... along the sea wall on a fine day in Narragansett, Rhode island. There was this man holding a dog protectively in his arms. I asked him what it was, and he replied, "A Mexican Chihuahua." Then he said, "These dogs are little, so they don’t eat much. And, since they are tiny and don’t consume much dog food, they are very easy to clean up after when they should leave a little present on the sidewalk along the sea wall."   "Another Chihuahua trait is the short hair." he said. As you can see from this photograph I took of this diminutive canine, there are probably few hairballs under the furniture in this owner’s house.

Note the little brown spot on this little guy’s flank. Cute. He coould have been named Spot, but he was not. His name is Pepe.

His master went on, "Like most Chihuahuas, little Pepe is an exceptional watch dog, albeit not much of a deterrent for a determined bugler. He has first rate hearing, and sleeps with one eye open, just waiting to sound the alarm of an approaching stranger."

Weighing in at 4.75 pounds, and standing 9 inches tall, Pepe  present a statuesque appearance to the world.
