Fact of the Day: Chihuahua

While the origin of the Chihuahua breed of dog is debated, it almost certainly happened in present-day Mexico. It is very likely they were descended from a breed of dog called the Techichi. They were favored as companion dogs by the ancient people of Toltec.

  14. Chihuahuas are really, really popular here in Hawaii. I think people like having small dogs because they might be easier to care for. Smaller poops? However, I understand they're not all that easy actually.
