Miss Lolita, Diva Doggy inTraining

Thank you Alicia Cameron for sharing this photo of her Chihuahua "Lolita" in her special car seat. These sassy little dogs are well known as "purse dogs" like the famous Bruiser in the movie Legally Blonde.

According to the AKC, The Chihuahua’s history is shrouded in mystery, but some believe he originated from the Fennec Fox, a very small animal with big eyes and ears, which could explain the tiny frame, luminous eyes and large ears on the breed today. Chihuahua’s were used in religious ceremonies and were pets to the upper class. The breed derives its name from the Mexican State of Chihuahua, where the earliest specimens of the breed were found.
