Chihuahuas Everywhere

pics with the plaid bed are the 2nd litter
Brasco and Betty had their first litter of puppies Dec 7, 2006. Puppies total 7 and all were fine. Dynamite was the runt (he now weighs in at 13 lbs) He is "The King". Jim taught him how to sleep under the covers, so now that's where he sleeps. He is the only one that does that. Feisty used to, sometimes.
The next year, Betty had 7 puppies again, Dec 3rd this time. All were fine once again. There really wasn't a runt, as such. The smallest one was a girl, so naturally her name (the one we called her) was Nitro. (Jim named Dynamite and Nitro) There was also Lon, Chaney, Spike, Flip, Alvin(shes a girl, but she had a black dot on her belly, reminded me of a chipmunk) and Red. The entire 2nd litter was sold.
Betty waited 2 years to have another litter. This time she was due in the summer. She got really big, bigger than the other 2 times even. When the big day came (night actually) she had 8 puppies, but only 1 survived. We still don't know what went wrong. It was so horrible. Two of the puppies lived until the next day, but 1 died the next morning. The other died the next day.
The little survivor is Chee. She is a go getter. She looks just like her big brother, Dynamite.
He even lets her climb on him and when she sleeps in with the boys and her dad, she leans on Dynamite.
