They save their voice for those really important moments, but are otherwise calm and quiet.
Within a few months of living with one, you start to notice their quirks and habits, and they start to develop a secret language with you.
Chihuahuas love to be as close to their favorite humans as possible, and will climb into your lap, or snuggle right up to you and rest their head on your neck.
Those big, brown paws sometimes slide out in all directions, and sometimes walls and doors are closer than they appear. When the Chihuahua takes a tumble, they look up at you for a moment, and almost seem to laugh at themselves, with that happy waving tail. Chihuahuas also think it's quite funny when you fall down, especially if there is flying food involved.
No dog has more humanlike eyes than the Chihuahua.
When they chew up your sneakers, they' are just trying to tell you that you don't really need two pairs, do you?
These quiet dogs seem to sneak up behind you at the oddest moments: when you are in the kitchen, the bathroom, anywhere that might serve as an interesting opportunity to observe you or snatch some food.
When you come home after a long day, nothing beats a warm greeting from your Chihuahua. That super-fast tail can wag up to 500 times per minute, roughly.
