Did Somebody Say Chiweenie?

ROFLing here. After the family went to sleep last night, I stayed up and watched a Dogs 101 recording and I lucked out. In this episode, they explained a lot about designer dogs, --and my sissy, Frankie, is supposed to be a Chiweenie. ROFL again. First off, I still can't believe that the Chiweenie falls under the Designer Dog category! Haaaa, have you looked at Frankie closely? Does Frankie look to you like a "designer anything"?

The Chiweenie is also supposed to have short legs. Frankie looks like she's on stilts, more like a cross between a Chihuahua and a gazelle! And it gets better, chiweenies have the funniest nicknames: Mexican hot dod, lol, German taco... I'm laughing so hard, I'm crying.

I learned something else on that show, but this is not funny. I learned about dog sharing. I don't know what to make of that. What if it turns into some type of ugly custody battle and us kids are in the middle? Or do you get the best of both worlds? But doesn't it sound upsetting? I know I'd never want to be "shared" personally, but I also know that when I was homeless and hanging by the rail of "the bridge" any pet adoption would have worked. Perhaps the answer is simple: "home is wherever you're loved".

I don't like the sound of that dog sharing, but I suppose when a family breaks up and mom and dad both really love their dogs that it is hard to know what to do.

What is a cheweenie? Never heard of that one.
No, we don't like the idea of dog sharing either. Humans are strange creatures who like nothing more than arguing and fighting over things, if they were just more like dogs the world would be a better place.

So far nobody here likes the idea of dog sharing. I think it's because we all have caring and loving homes. What if though more pets got adopted this way? What if somebody unwilling to take on the full responsibility of raising one of us, would agree if they could share? Trust me, I would never want to "be shared" at this point in my life, but three years ago...I would have loved the opportunity.
PS: Chiweenie=Chihuahua + Dachshund (Wiener) but to tell you the truth, we're not even sure what Frankie really is; other than adorable that is.
