Meet Shiva!

We'd like to introduce you to a new addition to the family - Shiva, our new pet chihuahua!

How cute is this?  I could barely contain myself!

Following in the footsteps of my parents, who were small dog owners themselves, we had adopted Shiva after falling in love with her at first sight.  We took her out for her first big day outside on Victoria Day to Jack Darling Park in Port Credit with our neighbours, Dejah and Brandon and their son, Mylo.

Don't let the shoe fool you - it's infant size!

'Have you seen my shoe?'

Seems that Mylo was more interested in the dog than the camera!

The secret to owning a small dog is to treat it like a big dog.  I really do try not to carry Shiva around too much, and I make sure she's on the ground when she meets new people and other dogs for the first time.  The four - ahem, six, counting baby and dog - are planning a camping trip in early July, and we're looking forward to introducing Shiva to the wonders of nature and the fun outdoors!  That dog'll be sleeping for a week!

Leave a comment for Shiva and say hello! :)
