    THE BEST BOOK...A MUST HAVE!

    This book is the best I have ever read reguardung Chihushuas. I was debating if I wanted a dog or not and THIS book helped me to understand what is required and needed to have and maintain a great Chihuahua. It answered my questions and some I didn't ever know to ask. But what really helped was the easy to follow, to understand and to read the layout of this book.
