I spent an hour or so last night holding a chihuahua. It was a very strange experience as I have never before come across a furry animal that simply wants to be held all the time. It was held by a succession of people all day - I was just the last volunteer.

I may have softened slightly toward the breed.

Are you sure your greyhounds wouldn't like you to hold them all the time, if you'd let them? :)

I've yet to soften to chihuahuas (or spell them with confidence). But maybe I just haven't really met any yet. They're ... weird and non-doggy.

Hah - I had real problems spelling it when I posted this!

They are a little odd if you are used to other dogs (they bark loudly though!) but actually I think they must make great pets for the elderly or for mobility-impaired people, or someone who likes to sit in front of a PC all day with a dog on her lap, say ;-)

Maybe when I get old...
