Ponders seem to love dogs... Most of you on this forum have pictures of your dogs either in a signature or as your avatar. I wonder why pond lovers and dog lovers are generally one in the same... Interesting. On a side note about my dog, my brother watched him while we were out of town. My brother has a Chihuahua, a Shelty and a small mixed breed dog. He said both my Chi and his Chi insisted on sleeping under the covers, but when either one would move it would start a Chihuahua fight throughout the night. They were awakened to a ball of Chihuahua fury under the cover multiple times each night. It made me laugh, Chihuahua's have such attitudes LOL Another observation, Marines love Chihuahuas. LOL I think it is because Chihuahuas are so scrappy. My husband is a retired Marine and loves our baby like a son. His brother is a Marine and has a Chihuahua, and almost every other retired Marine we have met has Chihuahuas. It is the cutest thing in the world to see a big tough Marine carrying a Chihuahua like a baby.
