Cynthia Montero says
I have three chihuahuas. My oldest is Sgt. Pepper (we call him Pepper and he’s white with black marks). My second one, a girl, is named Cinderella (we call her Cinder because she’s not quite big enough to be a full princess yet, and she’s black). I got my youngest, a tan colored pup, on May the Forth (Star Wars Day), so I named him Artu Deetu. We call him Artu for short. They are so precious. I can’t imagine having a different kind of dog. We all fit together perfectly on my recliner. It’s perfect! They’re a delight.
