This amusing video clip comes to us from West Allis, Wisconsin. A sweet little Chihuahua named Oscar waits anxiously in a car for the return of his human father who has gone to pick up a few needed items. It is absolutely adorable! The dog is clad in a green and blue coat which has a zipper in the back and the top of his little head is adorned with a knitted hat complete with a white pom-pom. It is literally too much cuteness in one video! This dog is on high alert. He is moving around the car looking out of every window just hoping to catch a glance of his owner. The dog is thinking, “Why is he taking so long? I hope he remembers to get my dog chow!”
This video clearly demonstrates the many adorable features of the Chihuahua breed. They are such sweet animals and their cute little faces and compact bodies are a sight to behold. They are intelligent and very aware of their surroundings at all times. Many people regard them as fragile beings, but don’t let their tiny appearance fool you. They are agile, energetic and size means nothing to a Chihuahua. They demand to be taken seriously. It is often said that the Chihuahua suffers from “little dog syndrome.” In other words, the dog exhibits behaviors that are an attempt to overcompensate for its tiny stature. This can be the case with some small breeds but it actually has more to do with the owner and the amount of training the pet has received.
The Chihuahua is a breed of dog that originated in Mexico and is named after the state capital of Chihuahua. In Aztec temples and pyramids, skeletal remains of this breed have been found which is an indicator that the Aztec people believed that their beloved pet would also play a role in the afterlife. Today’s Chihuahua comes in a variety of colors. Red, black, tan and white and in many various combinations. Their coats can be long or short-haired. There are also variations in the head shape such as the apple head or deer head. This breed of dog can often have a quirky and eccentric personality. They are comical and loyal little dogs. Socialization is very crucial and has a lot to do with how your pet turns out. Chihuahuas are naturally suspicious towards strangers so care needs to be taken when introducing a new person to your pet, They can be quite protective and they do get jealous on occasion, particularly when there are other pets in the family.
Their tiny forever puppy-like appearance lends itself to the concept of dressing up your animal. There is an entire industry devoted to designing various forms of clothing for this breed. Anything from raincoats and boots to beach and winter-wear have been designed for this dog. Certainly the Chihuahua featured in this clip is very fashion savvy. The owner clearly wants his little buddy to stand out in the crowd and he cares about keeping his little friend warm and cozy.
