Show Me Your Chi Chis!

August 1, 2008

According to an LA Times article I read yesterday, Los Angeles is the land of chihuahuas, with nearly 60,000 registered chihuahuas in the LA county. I’m guessing that the real number is even higher than that!

Good things do come in small packages!

Here’s the list of the top 10 most popular dog breeds in LA by number of registrations:

1. Chihuahua

2. Labrador Retriever

3. German Shepherd

4. American Pitbull Terrier

5. Poodle

6. Cocker Spaniel

7. Chow Chow

8. Rottweiler

9. Golden Retriever

10. Daschund

I can’t believe the maltese breed didn’t crack the top 10. It’s okay, Wally and Tiki, you’re both still number one on my list!

Anyhoo, to celebrate the mighty chihuahua topping the list, I dug up a few pictures of chihuahuas that people have sent me over the years.

This is Lucy on our Cosmopolitan Donut Bed

Look at the color of those eyes!

This is one of Myla Kent’s chihuahuas Daisy playing with our Daisy The Cupcake toy. Talk about serendipity!

And Myla’s other chihuahua Bear getting comfortable inside our Jelly Donut Bed!

Lulu and her pups on our Fur My Honey Rectangle Nest bed.

Last but not least, here’s Nunu on our Velour For Sure Donut Bed.

I have to admit, it’s hard to resist the charms of a chihuahua!

Extra yummy: The drawing of the chihuahua you see on the top of the post is actually the official mascot of our Poop Culture dog t-shirt line. I introduced the t-shirts a couple of years ago and haven’t had much time to grow the line as our burgeoning dog toy collection was taking up most of my time. I think it may be time to give it the TLC it needs – you know, as in Tiny Little Chihuahua.


Room Candy – always yummy!
