The Chihuahua named Poppi

I adopted an 8 lb 8-year-old Chihuahua named Poppi from the Greenville Humane Society in Dec 2010. He had been abused, was a little rough around the edges; but was very affectionate.

I needed something to smother with attention other than my boyfriend Joe because let’s face it. Men only like to be smothered with attention for so long. They need space.

The good thing about Chihuahuas is that they need NO personal space.

Sometimes I wish my dog wanted a little space. Regardless, I love him and all his quirks.

Reasons I love him:

#1 When he eats, he grunts like a pig

#2 When he gets excited, he grunts like a pig

#3 Sometimes I think he is a pig

#4 He sits like a gopher

#5 He sun bathes and cleans his face like a cat

#6 He is a food snob and prefers homemade chicken stock to the kind out of a box

#7 He hates men except for Joe

#8 He runs in circles when it’s bedtime because he loves it so much

#9 He insists on sleeping under the covers!

#10 He snores so loud it’s frightening

#11 He is bi-polar…. pig/chihuahua/cat/gopher personality

#12 He thinks he is my sole protector and takes his job VERY seriously

  1. Hi Rene, my name is Meredith. I love your little story about your dog so much I have to tell you mine. I am a new owner of a Chihuahua. I have had her since she was 8 weeks old and she is now 4 months old and I have to tell you she is the best dog ever…..Her name is Madison, I call her Madi for short, she is black with a white mark on her neck and chin that looks sort-of like a lightning bolt. As I was reading the things you said about your dog I could have sworn they were about Madi, it sounds just like her. She also howls at the end of every yawn and if I just leave her sight she cries. The funniest thing is in the car if I don’t roll the window down fast enough, she will stand at the window and cry until I roll it down. She is just the cutest thing. Thank You for sharing the story about your dog….
