It was around the time of Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie's Simple Life show...all I wanted was a little Chihuahua to tote around in my purse. Reality TV and real life are completely different. Ava was a nightmare to take in public. She barked at everyone and everything. She would chase people down like she was a Great Dane. I loved Ava a lot, but Chihuahua's tend to have joint problems, and Ava had a difficult time staying healthy. At one point she required surgery on her legs, she had terrible allergies and was just an all around brat. I would say Chihuahua's are a VERY high maintenance dog.
