You need more Isbars! :lol:

(my grandmother has dementia)  With some work on my part, she is now completely potty trained..........I crate her when I leave the house and she will now even bark when she wants to go out.

Never in my life will I voluntarily get a Chihuahua.  Too much little dog syndrome.  The only things she has going for her is that she is a good rider in the car.

Not pure.



Here is the breeders club link:

I gotcha please don't think I'm judging. I see now why you have it. Sadly we will probably be in the same boat in a few years as we are the only ones that would take my Grandma's too. They almost sound like the same dog. My Grandma's had to be tied for the first year or two of her life because she would run down the center of the road. My mother and I moved in for four years to take care of my Grandma(has mild dementia) and my Grandpa(has Alzheimer's). She also has frequent accidents in the house and they had to completely lock her out of the dining room or she will just go in and use it as her personal toilet. I was able to save her from being tied any time she was outside while living there I trained her to come when called and stay near. I also trained her to sit and lie down. My Grandma's dementia is not so severe that she forgets to take her out, just that she doesnt want to. My Grandma also has the older mindset that food aggression is normal in dogs and can't be trained out of them. It's sad how dogs turn out in some cases where people don't try to work with them. It's bad enough that my mother has a yorkie and lives with us. My Grandma's chihuahua is sweet when she wants to be and she adores me because I command her respect but I would never want one. I have a sheltie and she's the smallest I can ever see owning and she's a wonderful mix of big and little dog. Originally I wanted a shepherd but we didn't have the room. Good luck with the chihuahua and your little Japanese bantam. How's she doing today?

The egg in the picture? Give it more time. Blood rings usually look different from that picture.

x2  are you candling from the fat end of the egg?  Air cell down into the egg?  that looks like a loose air cell somewhat doesnt it Ron?  of course candling images are tough to look for stuff
