It's official.......

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
It's official, I am only a cat person. I got a puppy five weeks ago, a little Chihuahua. He was cute but..... He was the meanest little thing. We just didn't get along. I guess we never connected. I couldn't see him like I see my little, kitty Cali. So on, so forth......I am only a cat person.

Don't worry I called the breeder and gave him back so she could give him to a better suited family and hopefully a very patient person.

Hmmm...I guess some people are just like that? Personally, I am more of a cat person, but I get along just as well with dogs & love them with all my heart. But, well, that's just me. At least you gave it a try!

Well, Chihuahuas are not the most friendly breed so I've heard. You should of gone with a lab or a mix. While puppies, just like kittens, are sooo cute, you have to test the temperment and personality of the dog, then decside if that is the right dog for you.

I agree... or if you need to go small... a corgi. They are soooo sweet and cute too! And they remain cute when they get big.

The Queen's corgis seem like nasty little things and they are off a very good pedigree!

At least once a year theres an article in the papers about how they have bit someone or been fighting with the Princess's bull terriers.

I'd much sooner stick with cats, even though mine are mean little creatures too.

Corgis definitly aren't one of the best natured breeds. Cavs are the best!

Everyone thinks that the breed they own is the best.. but I don't! Apollo sheds, he's stubborn (traits of the breed) though I still love him.. but I don't know if I will own another bouvier anytime soon

a good dog I would have to agree would a Cavalier Spaniel.. part of the toy group.. but nowhere near the size of a chihuahua.

Two of my friends own Chihuahua's, loveable dogs once they get to know you.. both of them like nothing better but to cuddle Though it takes a bit of warming up first!

uuummmm, I have a corgi. Hyper dog if you ask me!! And very jealous of all my other animals! I STRONGLY suggest the most loving and mild mannered pooch around, the PUG! Very giving and accepting. You just got the wrong breed with a Taco bell dog!

Seems like in general the larger the dog, the more easygoing they are. Of course that's just a generalization ... but, for instance, an English Mastiff is a very mellow, likeable dog. Of course, the males can get up to 230 pounds.

I hear that. I'm not patient with dogs, either. Well, I'm a pet sitter and am very patient with the ones I take care of....but we tried the puppy thing a couple years ago too, and I couldn't stand it!

I guess we just got lucky. We have the sweetest Chihuahua in the world!

Generally, I prefer the mixed breeds when it comes to dogs. Brynna is an Australian Shepherd/Lab mix and the sweetest, smartest dog I have known in a very long time.
While many of the purebred dogs are beautiful, their temperaments are so variable by breed..give me a good ol' mutt any day.

Leto- My husband just mentioned to me that he ws thinking of getting me a Cavalier Spaniel. I think they are beautiful dogs. I think that maybe mine and the pups personality don't mix well. But I'm happy that she'll find him a new home that is better suited and if I try another pup this time I will spend more time with the breed. I had a Chihuahua when I was 12-13 and I loved it but things shange and it aould have been the pup. Right now, I'm happy with me lovely lil Cali. She's a mutt Calico but I love her so much.

The whole pup thing, I'll try another time. The thing is, I read up on the whole Chihuahua thing, I did my homework. But it just didn't work out. Thanks for all you info. on the pups. When I'm ready again I'll have to ask you all again. I just feel bad that it didn't work and I got discouraged.

I had 2 chihuahuas that were the swetest little creatures ever. I had to let them go when I left my daughter's father. I was afraid he would abuse them if I let him keep them and I could not take them with me. They went to live with an elderly couple, and lived out their years with them. My daughter breeds them, and hers are sweet little things, but a bit too energetic for me. If I was ever going to have another dog, it would be one of those.
I had a pit bull that put me off of dogs. I could not decide if he was the most stubborn, or just the dumbest dog imaginable.
I love my kitties, and that is probably what I will always have.

I'm pretty much just a cat person too...I think my dogs are just exceptional and I'm able to handle them. If they were naughtier I might think twice about dogs...

I have never like Chiuhahuas. There was a time when I thought I wanted a small dog, but I really think I prefer big dogs. Little dogs tend to be nippy & yappy. I have met some very well behaved little dogs, but big dogs slobber more & thunder through the house. IMO, a home isn't complete without a big dog thundering through!

I love Labs! That is just me. While American Labs tend to be leaner dogs & have much more energy, most English(true English) Labs are quite laid back. Granted, they can weigh 100 + lbs. Our Lab loves to lick & play with Lily, but steers clear of Twitch. She is acutally a very smart dog & will let the cats come to her when they want to. Otherwise, she gets out of the way. I have seen her chasing around the house behind the two cats, but as soon as she knows someone is watching she drops to the floor like she was sleeping & looks at me innocentely.

I have heard that Cavaliers have no fear. I know of one that actually rides a horse. The dog's mommy rides her horse & the Cavalier rides another horse, on the saddle holding reigns(sp?) & all. I really want one, but they are a little expensive for me. I think my first dog will be a Lab, preferablly a black. I love black Labs. Then again, I might fall in love with another "pound puppy".
