I can’t imagine life without our little minxie girl!
“We were getting ready for our honeymoon a few weeks after we got married, when a photo popped up on facebook of a beautiful GSD cross with the most enormous ears….this was Chiva. It was love at first sight, although my husband kept calling her Bat Dog! So our romantic week away (with our GSD/Malamute!) was spent in great discussion about whether it was the right time to add to our little family. Loads of emails and chatter flew back and forth on the internet, and we made the decision to bring her home to us. We finally got to meet her at Gatwick airport at around 4am on 19th January one year ago. She was timid, hungry, cold and nervous. When we walked in the front door with her our GSD boy ran up to her, wondering what on earth we had brought home!! She was half his size and weight but decided there and then that she wasn’t going to be bullied…for the next two hours every time he so much as looked at her she barked at him! She is a bossy little thing! At first she was very independent, not too sure of cuddles, and made a dash for it every time we opened the front door. Over time the bond with all of us has strengthened and now she runs up for cuddles every morning and whenever I come into the room smile emoticon. She took the lead from our other dog and has been absolutely perfect in the house – no accidents, no chewing, learned quickly where she was allowed and not supposed to go. They are great friends and such wonderful company for each other. They play a lot and he spends a lot of time washing her huge ears! She loves the car and we spend a lot of time going back and forth to visit my elderly mum who adores her too. I can’t imagine life without our little minxie girl! Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all who helped her along her way, especially Doris, Mario and Lena xxx”
