Yesterday my wife and I bought a Chow Chow puppy. She is cinnamon in color and only 6 weeks old. These dogs are native to China(the breeder says that the breed was started long ago by a bear and wolf mating...anyone else besides me question that a bit? How about a wolf and a spitz dog mating instead?)and have histories of being hard workers, pulling carts and such. Meggy would love us to put her to work, she's as strong as an ox!

And they can be adamant in guarding their loved ones, though the word is that they just want to make sure you're OK with your visitors. They will not bite if you train them not to bite. But they have scared many people and have earned a reputation as being potentially trouble as regards visitors to your home. She is a doll and loves Daddy(me) very much! This is the only dog breed with a purple-black colored tongue, quite unique. Oh, that is not true, I have learned. The other dog with a purple-black tongue is the Sharpei, also a Chinese-bred dog. In this picture our puppy is on the left.

Just a note to go back and check out the picture in my first post above. You can see the picture now. Meggy is the little Chow Chow puppy on the left. She is currently actively in to chewing whatever she can get her paws on! She's a doll!

jamieoliver....thank you! She's adorable and I feel that she will really guard our property well once she grows up. These Chow Chows grow a thick coat, like Pomeranians and Spitz dogs do. They're all in the same family. I hope you can someday get one of these babies for yourself, too!

Yeah, actually, that photo was taken by the breeder in Tucson, AZ, and was e-mailed to me. I was needing extra fodder to convince my wife that I(We)needed another puppy. We already have two Pomeranians, one 4 years old and another 8 years old. Since we are on a 4-year renewal cycle I felt like the time to act and get another puppy was now. That white male Chow Chow on the right in the picture actually was born the next day, after ours was born, but from the same litter of puppies. I have never heard of that occurring before. The breeder explains that he needs to develop a bit first, and this looks to be happening, by the way.

Two black Chow Chows were in the litter, two cinnamon-colored Chows and the one white male pictured with ours was born one day after all of the others.

Thanks, mememe and ash!

BTW-the puppy dog on the left by my nickname is the same puppy but grown up several months. The breeder says she'll eventually get to 28 pounds. She's gotta be pushin' that now at 10 months old.

Hey y'all here's a Meggy May update! Took her to the vet a couple days ago. As I suspected she's as healthy as an ox and strong as a horse, and, she now weighs 39.8 lbs.! I figured she was overtaking the breeder's eventual top weight estimate of 28 lbs. The vet says she has beautiful muscle tone and is in great shape. What a doll...I didn't know puppies came this cute!

Last night she was helping me eat some pizza and nipped a finger or two of mine gulping one particular piece up. This dog has an extremely muscular and strong jaw! And strong and sharp teeth, too. Whew!
