Athena and Venus. (HB Independent / November 5, 2012)

Like their mythological namesakes, Athena and Venus aspire to be goddesses in your household. These adorable five-month-old Chihuahua puppies are sisters and want to stay together.

They are playful and affectionate pups who will cover you with kisses. Both are healthy; however, Athena, the more petite sister, has a form of demodectic mange. This skin condition is not contagious to either dogs or humans, but will require monitoring and possible medication.

As with all young dogs, Athena and Venus are still growing up and will need your continued guidance to become responsible canine citizens. But right now, their immediate goal is to become your domestic goddesses. With pink ears and champagne coats, these little girls are hard to resist.

Their adoption fees are discounted 25% all week when you mention this announcement at the Orange County Humane Society, 21632 Newland St., Huntington Beach. For more information, call (714) 536-8480 or visit http://www.ochumanesociety.com.
