For the Love Of the Chihuahua and the Chihuahua Club of America Show in Chicago Area

Mateo sweet boy

I had the great pleasure of going to a special show this past week end in Hoffman Estates – a show chock full of darling little Chihuahuas. If you admire the breed and love these little darlings, you would have felt like I did – like a kid in a candy store. These little guys were everywhere.  If you had ever watched dog shows on TV or saw them in person, the outline was very similar. Dogs are called into the ring in various classes starting with all the males, according to age. They start with puppies up to 6 or 8 months, 8 to 12 months, 12 – 18 months and so forth. The winner of each group then comes forth again to win a “best in show” out of those pups. Then comes the ladies of the group.

You would be amazed at how unbelievably well-behaved and quiet all these little dogs were. Most people think “a room full of Chihuahuas must’ve had a howling sounding with all of those little barkers.” Of course there was an occasional baby yapping because it did not want to be crated but for the most part, these little dogs were so exceptionally on their best behavior. . . and little they were. I was fortunate to make the acquaintance of a lady with her little Chi sitting right next to us. Within the tiny case on my left was Mateo, a small 1-1/2 pound 8 month old tan and white male Chihuahua. He was so sweet and precious. Quiet and well-behaved ad as he was, Mateo got very excited when another pup came nearby. He wanted so bad to play. I was so happy to meet you, Mateo. . . maybe against next year.
