Top 20 Gifts For Chihuahua Appreciation Day

It all started on May 14, 2010. That’s when Nadia Alterio declared on her website, Famous Chihuahua, to be the International Chihuahua Appreciation Day as a way of honoring her sweet little Chi Chi, Teaka.

Teaka was the inspiration behind her website, and as things often do in the world of the Interwebs, Chi-lovers took the declaration (and website) viral. Now, even though sweet Teaka died on October 30, 2017, at 16-years-old, her legacy lives on every May 14th. It’s a day to celebrate Chihuahuas and appreciate all that the pups bring to our lives.

So here are the top 20 gifts for Chihuahua Appreciation Day we’ve found. Some you’ll want for yourself, some for your favorite Chihuahua and some for gifts. No worries, you can have them all!Don't judge my chihuahua bag is perfect for carrying chis
