little doggie

My history with Chihuahua's date back to when I was a toddler. My grandparents had a (somewhat larger than usual) chihuahua named Gwendolyn. Affectionally called Gwen or Gwenny also. Here is a picture of me and Gwenny sharing a footstool. Yes, that is a purse on my head. I was always doing something to bring a chuckle to my doting grandparents. A little comedian I was!
Gwendolyn and I had a bit of a rocky relationship in the beginning. She didn't much appreciate me sitting in her dog bed looking at a picture book when I was a few months old. I think she thought that because of my small size, that we were in competition for my grandparents attention. Even with the odd curled upper lip she gave me, she was a cute dog and the first dog in a long line of dogs who won my heart over the years.

"Girl with Chihuahua" is up for grabs on ebay.

Cute! When I first looked at the pic, Gwen appeared to be further away and on the floor and I thought 'somewhat larger' was an understatement LOL! then I realized she was right by your side and it made more sense.
I love dogs too! The world is a better place because of them♥
