HI

Post by crazy4chows » Mon Feb 19, 2007 3:36 pm

I just wanted to introduce myself. I came across this website over the weekend. We have two Chows (Maximus, a 6 year old blue male, and Ava, a 1 year old red Chow mix.) I was so thrilled to come across a place filled with people who love Chow Chows! I look forward to chatting with you! :D

Mrs Crazy4Chows it is, lol. :D This is my first time trying to post pictures, so please let me know if these come through. The first picture is of Maximus, our 6 year old Chow. The second pic. is of Ava, our 13 month old Chow/Shiba Inu mix. We adopted her when she was 5 months old. She and Maximus became the best of friends right off the bat!

Isn't he hadsome? I have never seen a chow with that coloring. Even though I have a blue as well, he is darker than that. Maximus looks so soft too... like he still has puppy fur. He looks like "blue cotton".. :D

Maximus is about 65lbs. He's a little tall for a Chow, but not quite as round as some of the others I've seen. I've been looking through the pictures everyone has posted and there are so many color combinations that I had never seen before. :D

He is a big chow & Chris said it perfect, he looks like a blue cotton ball. My Irish is now 67 lbs. I believe Chris had a chow that was even larger.

Their coloring is all unique. Gorman (the chow on the left) is supposed to be a blue. He was a lot bluer (bad english) when he was younger. All teh feathering on his bum & his entire tail are the only signs of blue left on him. Although when he's next to the other 2 which are black you can see he's a tad different color. I had never seen cream chows w/ red ears until I became a member on this site. They are so gorgeous.
