I listed several of our chinchillas for sale this week. I got my first call this evening....
caller: "Hi, I'm calling about the chihuahua"
Me: "I'm sorry but it's not a chihuahua.. it's chinchillas"
C: "Oh, so it's sold already"
M: "no, it's not a dog"
C: "oh its a puppy?!"
M: "no it's a small rodent from the Andes mountain region"
C: "oh..uhmmmmm...can you tell me what breed it is and where it originates from"
M: "it's a small furry rodent from the Andes mountain region of south america"
C: "oh, uhmmm thank you very much"
I don't think they still grasp that it's not a dog.
Chihuahua - thanks Mexxi and Boo for the pic :)
