Hello and welcome to All-About-Chihuahuas.com!
If you’re asking yourself how and why this Chihuahua website came about, then read on….
My name is Dwayne and I am the site’s author. I’ve always loved animals, and they were always a part of my life as I was growing up. There would always be an animal in the house during my younger years, whether we were looking after someone’s dog, or bringing back rabbits from my father’s place of work for a couple of days.
Eventually my parents decided to stop “borrowing” pets and we got our own ones. These were mainly small animals, like white mice, terrapins, and budgies which were relatively easy to look after.
As we got older and more responsible, we moved on to more demanding pets. Our first dog came in the form of a female Yorkshire Terrier (Fluffy). We then got ourselves a cat (JB), and some years later came a Doberman. (Psy as in Psycho. It was pretty funny to see people’s faces when Psy would run off chasing cats and we’d be running after him shouting “Psycho come back!”)
As soon as I moved out and got my own place, I rescued two cats from the cat shelter; a Siamese (Elvis) and a Persian (Priscilla). When Elvis and Priscilla left the building and moved on to the great cattery in the sky, I got myself another cat, this time a Tabby (Cleo). Unfortunately, Psy also moved on recently, however, there is now a brown Labrador (Che) in my parent’s house to keep them busy.
So by now you’re probably wondering what I know about Chihuahuas and why I created this site.
I’d never really thought much of Chihuahuas. Sure they were cute to look at, but they were just yappy, little annoying dogs, that given half the chance would feast themselves on your shins right? I thought I had turned into more of a cat lover anyway.
A few years ago my sister got herself an Apple head Chihuahua (Roxanne) and I’ve since learnt a lot, and grown extremely fond of these little rascals. She desperately didn’t want her to become a part of the shin munching Chihuahua brigade, so we set off on a quest to try and train Roxanne, with me helping her. What we hadn’t counted on, was the lack of good, concise information out there. Sure enough, there was a lot of information, but it wasn’t of a good quality, and it was scattered all over the internet. There was no one site you could go to for all your Chihuahua’s needs.
This became more evident still, when we planned on making Roxanne a mother. Again we found that there wasn’t much we could find about Chihuahua health issues, Chihuahua pregnancy, Chihuahua puppies and other related matters. One Chihuahua in the house soon turned into three when Pappi and Bella joined us, and the need for instant information was increasing.
As a result of this, I came up with the idea for a Chihuahua website that would have everything you could hope to have and be a one stop shop for everything Chihuahua related. Everything from the history of Chihuahuas, the different types, training, Chihuahua pictures, downloads and more. In fact, every day I think of something new and the list of things to add to the site gets longer and longer.
The process is slow, since I am having to learn about what makes a website successful, and how to use the systems required for the creation of a website. I am confident though, that in time, All-About-Chihuahuas.com will be the only Chihuahua website that you will need to turn to.
If you have any questions you would like to have answered, a contribution to make to our site, or you would like us to cover a certain subject, please do not hesitate to contact us. After all, we hope to learn us much from you, as you will from us.
