Papa: the Chihuahua — Vancouver, BC

Papa is a 12 year old toothless Chihuahua. Just don’t mess with him. He’s from Mexico City, Mexico. He was scavenging through garbage when Wendy’s friend saw him. She gave him some food and took him back to Vancouver at the end of her vacation. After a few weeks Wendy’s friend decided that having a dog was not for her. She gave Papa to Wendy. (I don’t know or understand how Wendy knows Papa’s age, maybe from the vet?)

Papa’s not a friendly dog. He doesn’t need anybody, he can look after himself. Papa treats Wendy as an equal, but everybody else or every other dog… Leave him alone.

I really like his expression ‘Grrr’ (I’m bugging him with my camera), but it could be because he’s toothless.
