We are now a family of 5

We are now the proud parents of a sweet 6 week old toy chihuahua. It's a girl!! We have named her Dixie Rainbow Dash Kubin (Kynlie picked her middle name lol, from my little pony).

She is so sweet!!! When we picked her up today, I got to visit with her mom. I was so pleased to see that she was not hyper, "yappy", jumpy, and she was very loving! Ive heard and seen most chihuahuas can be all of the above.

She is mostly black with brown paws and brown around her mouth and eyes. I'm not sure what she weighs right now, but it can't be much. Her full grown weight is estimated to be 5 to 6 lbs!!

Kynlie loves her so much, I knew she would!!! She's begging me to let her sleep in her room, in the crate, but I'm not so sure right now.

Kooper cried all the way home because I wouldn't let him hold her. He forgot about her after his nap. When he saw her later, he went crazy to hold her. So we finally let him and surprisingly he was pretty gentle. He kept saying "my gog" "hi, what you doin" and cried every time I took her.

She's already spoiled. She likes to crawl up on my shoulder and rest. I know she's very young but we are having a hard time getting her to eat and drink. Only way I could was to place it on my fingers and let her lick it off lol! She likes to tuck her head in the corner of the bed and sleep. The last picture above, she fell asleep eating out of my hand.

She's so so tiny. That pink stuffed toy is just about the same size as her.
I've always said I would never get a dog, cat, etc... Much less a inside dog. But I'm glad I decided to. I think Dixie will be a wonderful addition to our family. Let's face it, I'm having baby fever so bad and can not have anymore babies, so I'm fixing it with Dixie! But no worries, she will never ever take the place of my two most precious kiddos!
