What an fun article for a dog lover such as myself! I saw her pix and she couldn't be cuter. Please keep us posted!

Yes she's adorable, but kind of an unfair winner since she wasn't a purebred chihuahua!

Mix Chihuahuas are allowed. The starting gate is really small so they have to fit in there to have a good chance. The National Reigning Champ, Maddy from New York is a Chi/Poodle Mix! She's going to defend her title this year in San Diego.

Shannon, it's not like the Chi-Pug dominated the race. She just placed second. A pure bred Chihuahua won top prize and another one, third place. You are not making any sense, honestly.
Anyway, Go Chloe'! Go Palo Alto!
