Chihuahua de Mayo

By Christopher Hampson

As Cinco De Mayo is upon us, we thought that it would be nice to tie this Mexican celebration into something pet related- Our Chihuahuas! Bug-eyed, dinky and yappy- but we just can’t get enough of them. Just saying their name is fun.

The exact history of the Chihuahua is mysterious to say the least; widely debated is an understatement. What makes the breed hard to place in history has to do with its uniquely flexible genes that are found in a wide range of fury mammals from jackals to Grizzly bears! Scientists had a heck of a time distinguishing it from the fox species due to the number of similarities. It was finally decided that they belong in the “dog” category, but even owners with tell you, it’s more of a rat!

The smallest dog breed on the planet is named for the state in Mexico where they are prominent. It is believed that the Toltecs, whom conquered the Mayans, were the first to domesticate the tiny ancestors of this loyal canine. In fact, they may have even been revered enough to be used as a vital piece of their religion.

Obviously, they are not kept to act as a guard dog in the classic sense, but they can be counted on to make lots of noise when intruders are close. Chihuahuas actually make the list for top ten watchdog breeds.

Some the world’s most famous dogs happen to be Chihuahuas. Paris Hilton’s purse pet, Tinkerbell, to Gidget, the Taco Bell Dog- we couldn’t get through this article without mentioning him.

Being that the holiday is a few days away, we want to help you to avoid being “that person” in the group who gets it wrong. Remember, Cinco de Mayo is NOT Mexican Independence Day. The 5th of May marks the Day of the Battle of the Puebla, when the Mexican army won an unlikely victory over the French.  Fun fact: Cinco de Mayo is a day of pride in Mexico but not a national holiday. It seems to be more widely celebrated in America within Mexican communities.

 Bark Out Loud


Boy, if this doesn't hit the nail on the head, I don't know what does!

Two patients limp into two different medical clinics with the same complaint.

Both have trouble walking and appear to require a hip replacement.

The FIRST patient is examined within the hour, has x-rays the same day and has a time booked for surgery the following week.

The SECOND sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks for an appointment, and then waits 8 weeks to see a specialist, then gets an x-ray, which isn't reviewed for another week and finally has his surgery scheduled for 6 months from then.

Why the different treatment for the two patients?

The FIRST is a Golden Retriever.

The SECOND is a Senior Citizen.

Next time, TAKE ME TO A VET!
