Issa, a 10 year old Chihuahua, was part of the package when I met my wife six years ago. She had Issa for about a year before we met.
A family member wanted to breed Issa, so my wife took Issa to the vet and had her spayed when the family member was at work. My wife knew that there are a lot of pets that need homes already.
My wife and I now have two others, a Chihuahua and a Pit Bull, but it is Issa who rules the roost. She takes charge of the food, blankets and everything else that is important.
Issa's favorite treat is baby carrots, but her favorite thing in the whole world is warm blankets. Whenever she sees a laundry basket of warm clothes or anything, she goes crazy, jumping and acting like a total goofball.
