They were taken and cared for when they were only a few days old. Roger didn't rear them as pets but rather for education purposes. They don't bite Roger or his family but they could bite strangers and visitors.

Rico is the male and he is bigger in physique. He tried hard to stretch his hands out to catch me! I call the 2 front feet "hands" because they look exactly like our hands - five slender and flexible fingers that grasp and climb. And I was right to call them hands because I found out later in the internet that they were indeed hands. I don't like the look of his claws.

Bandita is the female and she is smaller. This is the only picture I managed to take a solo picture of her.

They look so alike to me. It is not easy to see Bandita and her actions. She is always hiding away in their kennel when I visit.

Chihuahas and Huskies

Thursday, 10 September 2009


Prancer is the grandmother of Emma (the chihuahua puppy that I wrote about last month). I think she is the prettiest of the pack.

Princess is Emma's mother. Princess is the daughter of Prancer. Princess is expecting again and that is probably why she likes to lie down.

Emo is Emma's father. Emo is also Emma's uncle. Emo is the brother of Princess and son of Prancer. He is either shy or not very social. This pictures is taken under the house!

And lastly meet Emma's brother - Edward.

The female Chihuahuas are more friendlier than the male ones. Edward wouldn't come to me when I called his name. Emo would run under the house when I approached him.


Buster is the male and white colored while Aspin is the female grey colored husky. They are kept inside the compound and so we are always separated by a fence. I wonder how they would react to me otherwise. Whenever they see me, they would walk to the fence and I would pat them over the fence.
