I wish I was a dog. A collection of the best Chihuahua photos showing the real struggle with being a dog
Many people believe that if you are a dog, you are free of stress, your life is sorted and you do not need to worry about anything for the foreseeable future. You might think that you will always have food, attention and love from the owner.
However, it is not always the case. A dog will not eat the whole day until the owner will come home, a dog will not accept to play with you without the owner and in some cases, he will become depressed if you do not cuddle him.
So it’s not as easy as you think. Especially if your dog is a Chihuahua. And to prove this, we are inviting you to see in pictures of Lucky's life, a Chihuahua puppy who has been enjoying and at the same time, stressing around for the past three years now.
This is how the puppy is spending his time before I'm going to work. Nothing will change on my return also
And while i'm at home, it doesn't change anything
The husband will not have a say when he want's to sleep
Having a personal driver be like
Still having a personal driver but on the front seat
Ready for New Year's Eve. Not sure who is looking better, me or the dog
My Christmas Jumper is way better than yours
Having a dinner with a view
Eating, sleeping, pooping. All day, all night
This is how exciting Lucky is when he knows that at 5.45 his owner is about to come home
This is how Lucky's perfect bed looks like
The dog is watching is everything is under control
Those Chihuahua eyes...
The wedding. Not sure who looks better, Lucky or the Bridegroom
So where is the bridegroom??

Steps To Bathing a Chihuahua
To make the bathing process easier and less messy, give your Chihuahua's coat a good brushing to remove any excess fur. Brushing them beforehand will catch any loose fur on their body that would otherwise end up in your bathtub or sink.
There's really no one specific way to bathe a Chihuahua. Some owners prefer doing it in a large sink, while others prefer to do it in the bathtub or tin bucket. As long as you don't get backaches from bending over, then it's usually best just to bathe them in the bathtub. It has a readily available water source, towels, and it's easy to clean up. With the tub stopper removed, turn the water and wait for it to reach a comfortable, luke-warm temperature that isn't going to freeze or scald your Chihuahua.
Just remember to try and make them as comfortable and relaxed as possible. If they are nervous or anxious of getting bathed, try petting and talking to them to calm them down. Typically, this type of behavior goes away once they get into a routine with consistent bathing at certain times of the month.
With your Chihuahua in the bathtub, follow these steps to clean properly clean them:
- Fill a pitcher or bowl up with luke-warm water and gently pour it over their body while holding shielding their head with your free hand.
- Read the directions on the label of your dog shampoo to see exactly how much needs to be used. Because of their small size, Chihuahuas usually only need a very small amount of shampoo.
- Lather the shampoo into their fur coat using either your hands or a wash cloth. Remember, it can easily cause pain and discomfort if it gets into their eyes, so keep their head shielding during the process.
- Allow the shampoo to sit for a couple minutes to help freshen their coat.
- Fill the pitcher back up with more water and pour it over their body to rinse out the shampoo. As the water pours over their body, run their coat with your hands to help work out the shampoo. Repeat this step until the water comes out clear and shampoo-free.
- Now that your Chihuahua is fresh and clean, take them out of the tub and wrap them up in a dry towel. Gently rub the towel against their body to speed up the drying process.
- Since your Chihuahua did such a good job at bath time, give them a treat followed by lots of petting and praise.
