bailey and aoife are both short-haired chihuahuas but they couldn't look more different. that's because bailey is an apple head and aoife is a deer head. no, i didn't make that up. that's really how they are known.

bailey's little skull is much rounder and is shaped like, well, like an apple. another trait of an apple head is the 90 degree angle where her skull meets her muzzle.

aoife's head is more elongated and shaped like, you guessed it, a deer. the slope from aoife's skull to her muzzle is another characteristic of a deer head.

this concludes today's chihuahua head comparison. BOL

thanks to alfie's blog, my brown newfies & snoopy's dog blog for hosting monday mischief blog hop.

until we meet again my friends-


  1. We saw tons of Chihuahuas at BlogPaws and still are amazed at how small your breed is!

  2. I think they are both pawdorable. My neighbor has one, and Andrew is like a toy come to life. So small - I worry when Jax is around them, I think he's going to hurt him.

  3. I am a deer head, like Aoife :)

  4. You learn something everyday. This would be funny to do with pugs. Round and rounder LOL

  5. Mom says she thinks I'm an apple head but my apple isn't as pronounced as the apple heads of today. Since I'm over 10 years old, maybe super apple-apple heads didn't start being born until way after I was born. Mom says she doesn't care - she loves me all the same - even if I had a tomato head!!

  6. Well that was interesting. Learn something new everyday, thanks.

  7. I never realized that, and both types make such cute lil furkids~

  8. you still look wonderfully cute

  9. You learn something new every day Apple head
