My little Luna a re-introduction for Dutch goes the Photo Birthday challenge

Given that Frank shared his young Cardigan Welsh Corgi pup, Stuff with us, I couldn’t resist sharing my little Luna.

A series of new beginnings occurred in my life three years ago when I moved from Northern California to beautiful sunshiny San Diego. I moved into my new home and starting to make new friends, and while I have my relatives nearby, the town that I live in, Fallbrook, is a small rural community of 36,000 lovely people.

But home alone was a little too lonely so my best friend Carolyn, whom I’ve known since high school, upon visiting me, encouraged me to get a companion.

I’ve never had a pet before, and as a business professional, my early years of establishing credibility meant a lot of long hours and travel. I didn’t think that I had the time to also take care of a pet. I was wrong of course, but at least in my new home and new life, I accepted the challenge. It was the best decision I ever made. My little Luna fur-baby is the best friend any one could have. 

Carolyn, relentless about helping find a buddy, first found her on a rescue website, and after combing through many little pups, I fell in love with Luna at first site. I named her Luna because of her little round white butt, but also because it is a worthy name. 😊 Her foster home name was Minnie, and that just didn’t fit her little self. 


She was born in a Shelter on February 28, 2016, and was one of two in the litter. She was immediately moved to a loving foster home for care until she was adopted.  Even though it was my first time as a pet owner, the shelter accepted my application because I work from home and knew that would be the best of worlds for a new puppy.

While they had her listed as a Puggle, a crossbreed between a Beagle and a Pug, which obviously she was not, I went ahead and obtained a DNA sample so I could have in case of health emergencies, and we learned that she is 100% Chihuahua.

We were lucky that they took a photo of her just a few days after her birth.


Thank you for sharing my little Luna’s birthday story with me.

    1. I adopted her from a shelter and funny story, when she was a pup they thought she was a pig and a beagle. But as she grew, I said no way! When I took her to the vet, he said she is a chihuahua, 100%. But I still wasn’t quite sure. So I got a DNA test and indeed she is 100% chihuhua!

        1. They are a very loyal breed and sweet but barkers! OMG, I’ve trained her to stop quite a bit but sometimes she is relentless. My cousin also has two chihuahua’s and you could probably imagine what the three of them sound like stuck in a car when we go on trips. But she is my girl, so I am patient but that is the only downside.

        2. Awww, my Molly has a touch of chihuahua and barks a lot too. I try to hush her but it doesn’t work. She is poorly trained as she was my first dog and I had a two year old plus three more. But, the loving kisses are the best. I bet it’s quite exciting going on road trips! And interesting for sure! 🤗😀

    1. I don’t think it is yoi training, even the trainer said it was breed specific.

      And yes those roadtrips are fun, when we are stopped at a light, they go crazy. We really think they want to go out snd play with everyone! Lol! The pleasure they bring.
