This video on Youtube, which would not let me embed here, produced by Animal Planet, eloquently states that Chihuahua has "enormous brain". It describes our Trinket perfectly to a T. We've always wondered why our little pup thinks and thinks, and over thinks, and thinks that if he thinks some more he'd stay out of trouble and keep his brothers out of trouble too. He thinks so much that he gets scared just thinking about what might come to his thoughts. Oh hide me, Mommy. We adopted Trinket as a terrier mix, as you see here when Trinket met his bio-Mom, she's very much Rat Terrier like. We assumed his dainty size was him being born the runt of the litter. Our vet mentioned Trinket's temperament and head shape resembled Chihuahua, and we were mad at her for a long time. Alas, fourteen years of cuddling the little deer head, we know better. He's definitely a two-person dog, well, maybe two and half, he's getting around to like Henry a little, accepting him into the pack, after ten years of parental enforcement. In human age Trinket is about 76. We cut him some slack.
