^^^ I love my little Chihuahua too. They give owners the same love as a big dog ...
BUT, they don't leave 18lbs of hair
behind on the couch or carpet every time they hang out there.
And I don't have to walk around the yard picking up stinky human-sized turds
when I want to mow the lawn.
Plus, a small bag of dog food lasts for months.
They also live twice as long as most big dogs.
Sure a large dog is better for security or people that like risking the health of their pets by having the "toughest" dog on the block, but I have better means for dealing with unwanted intruders over the capabilities a larger dog provides.
So next time you're scooping those huge turds out of your yard, think about me and my little Chi yapping in your ear.
