Well, Charlee is pretty confident and he usually doesn’t shake, but Neva shakes all the time. She will just look at you and shake until you call her name. I’ve heard other people talking about their chihuahuas shaking too, so I know that it’s too uncommon. But I always had to wonder: Why do chihuahuas shake?
As gross as it is, Neva always loves to lick my nose. She does it when she is excited, when I first come home, or if I am talking to her. I try to push her away, but she gets her little feelings hurt.
I always wondered “Why do dogs lick your nose?”
Some people say that it is simply just because you let them. They say if you curb the habit, they won’t do it anymore. That may be true, but my boyfriend doesn’t let her lick his nose and she still tries. Another theory is that they like the saltiness of your skin.
The answer goes deeper than that.
Yeah. I was making oatmeal, and my electric stove was dirty (I CLEANED IT TODAY!) and so it produced a lot of smoke. The smoke alarm went off and Char freaked out! It’s so cute and so funny at the same time!
Let’s just say that you want to show your Chihuahua. There is a certain “breed standard” that your Chi will be judged on.
A breed standard is essentially a “blueprint” for the individual breed to fit for the function in which it was bred (herding, tracking, etc.). The standard is not “set in stone,” and can vary in different associations and countries. It is just a guideline for what Chihuahuas should look like.
Here is the Chihuahua breed standard:
Chihuahuas seriously get excited about the weirdest things. But that’s part of what makes them so cute.
