Maya's New Baby Chihuahua

I have temporarily taken in my mums new 14 week old baby chihuahua Lexi to do some show training with her ready for the ring πŸ˜ƒ She moved in tonight and i thought i may as well start right away with getting the others used to her - I think Lexi will be boss in this house :rolleyes: She is a fiesty little madam!! Maya thinks its her new baby (she recently had a season and has had a phantom pregnancy so is feeling very maternal :rolleyes: ) and is just doting on her!

LOTS of photos!

Getting Told off!!!

Looks like it's working out nicely. Perfect timing for the pup in that Maya wants to mother her. Most Chihuahuas are feisty.

The pup is not overly keen on Maya trying to pin her down and wash her face and ears! She's told Maya off a couple of times, hopefully Maya will take the hint. She is the same with Delilah the pug and it drives poor Lilah nuts. Maya is the most maternal dog i've ever known, will probably be useless with her own babies though lol.

She is cute but I am confused about "show training" a pup that isn't even 4 mos old. Man, you'd have to pry that young of baby from my cold dead hands! I had a hard time letting Sayblee out on the circuit at 8 mos with a handler for weekends, lol! What training do you do that the owners aren't capable of at that tender age? I knew a few chihuaua breeders here btw, and they don't even place their pups til 12 weeks.

LOL you need to video them! Not sure who my sympathy is, with washer or washee!

LOL though at least Maya is fixed on her own kind. My Rottie had false pregnancy and decided the baby hedgehogs were her puppies!

Yes - at least it's a another canine for Maya to mother - mine have all sorts of strange 'babies' when they are feeling broody - one had a rat and aniother a toad!!!! ! Lovely pictures but I too was confused by 'show training' - won't she be bored by the time she gets in the ring?

I particularly like the 2nd & 3rd pictures from the bottom. The one with Lexi's nose up Delilah's butt is too cute!

Oh, not proper "show training" lol

Just getting her used to standing on a table, walking on a lead, taking her out and about with me (im not working for a few weeks so have a lot of spare time!) and getting her socialised πŸ˜ƒ I volunteered as i have yet to have a chihuahua to train and I thought i may as well take Lexi on as i have the time and it should be fun training a new breed πŸ˜ƒ

She will also start ringcraft this week which should be good socialisation for her πŸ™‚

ETA: I am the owner technically! Me and my mum own her in partnership πŸ˜ƒ

The third pic was when Maya was washing Lexi's ears. She has an obsession with ears πŸ˜ƒ
