Well this is the story of how Zac came into our lives, the kids had been asking for another dog ever since the tragedy with our Jayjay but i kept saying no. I got them a guinea pig but hey that's another story we will get onto soon. Anyway my daughter Dionne had been looking at dogs on the Internet and asking could we get another dog i wasn't to sure on the idea and didn't think i could handle another dog but you know what kids are like she went on and on about them it was October 2008 and we were discussing Christmas presents and Dionne said all i want is a chihuahua, i thought were did this come from a chihuahua but she was adamant it was a chihuahua and said she wanted nothing else, by this time i was coming round to the idea of another dog and with looking and reading about chihuahuas i was beginning to search for one for Dionne. I came across some adds scammers for sure finally i decided to go onto the kennel club website to be sure i wasn't being scammed the nearest breeder from me was 2 hrs drive, so i called to see what she had available she told me she had some cream females which she was selling for £950 that was way over my budget as i only had managed to save up £500 but looking at adds i could tell it was going to be hard finding a pup for this price so i told her i would have to leave it, she told me she had a red boy she would be willing to let go for £750 she sent me a picture of him and my oh my he was a cutie but still way over the amount i had.
I spoke to my mum and told her this and how i was going to have to disappoint her little princess Dionne now this could not happen in my mums eyes Dionne is her angel and she gives her what she wants most of the time, so that was that my mum said get back on the phone and see if she still has the little boy by this time it was November and i arranged with the breeder to pic Zac up on the 5Th of November i was now getting nervous about the decision and wondering if i was jumping into this without thinking, but there was no going back as dionne was so excited about her early Christmas present so we got in the car and drove the 2 hrs to get our little bundle it was Guy Fawkes night here in the UK and fireworks where being let of all around us my thoughts were is our little bundle going to e scared of all the loud banging anyway we arrived at the breeder and collected this little brown looking tiny fluff ball, ohhh he was such the cutest little thing you've ever seen and oh my so much smaller than i thought he was going to be. We drove home again by this time it was 10 o'clock at night we got him home and settled him in thinking he would be shy but his cheeky personality shone through straight away and i knew there and then
i was in love with this wee guy he is just the sweetest and cheeky little man and every body loves our wee Zacyboy<3
