How to Prank Your Chiweenie

This fun blog is brought to you by Twinkie the Teacup Chihuahua!

Many dog owners complete the AKC Canine Good Citizen course as a precursor to therapy dog certification. Since our brindle chiweenie*, Frankie, passed her CGC test with “flying” colors, we entertained the thought of making her … a therapy dog.

Becoming a therapy dog is a serious matter. TDI, Therapy Dogs International, is a prestigious organization with strict rules and guidelines. Would our chiweenie make a good therapy dog? Since TDI encourages the owners to continue training beyond CGC in order to develop some off-leash control, increase in the dog’s reliability, and to further enhance the bond between pooch and handler, we decided to do some in home training.  The Canine Good Citizen needed a pad for her “sits” This is where and how the brindle pup spent Puppy Class We even used her as “demo kitty” at our vet’s

The vet used her to demonstrate how to administer deworming pills to a . . . cat 

Brindle chiweenies are notorious for being deathly afraid of cute kittens

Time to prank her once again!

We’re going to stick her in the nursery room with the newborn kittens and their FERAL mom (notice squirt bottle)

OMD not the feral cat too!

Chiweenies make outstanding prank victims!!

* A chiweenie is a “designer dog” also known as a mixed bred, also known as a mutt. It is a cross between a chihuahua and a doxie.

Go ahead, prank a chiweenie!
