Ama is our founding member.
Her name is the verb form of the word ‘love’ in Spanish and she certainly gets plenty of it! As mum’s BFF she often enjoys special privileges like riding up front in the car or getting to snooze on the bed but also takes her responsibilities very seriously in showing her young sisters how to be model Chi’s.
In her teens Ama started her modelling career (now having her own Instagram following and featuring in Edinburgh Chihuahua Cafe campaigns) and tried her hand at being a show girl, getting through to the top 16 young female Chihuahua’s in the world in Crufts 2014.
As the Cafe’s inspiration she is undoubtedly the ‘hostess with the mostest’ and adores greeting new guests. Calm and happy to be petted, Ama will enjoy a blanket on your lap or snuggling up beside you. She won’t mind plenty of attention and is partial to a kiss!
She grew up in Southampton, moving to Scotland when she was two and a half. She loves the countryside in Fife but has always enjoyed the fashion scene in Edinburgh and loves turning heads in beautiful outfits. She has many matching outfits with Mum and the most extensive wardrobe of anyone. Not all of her sisters are as keen on fashion but Ama gets very excited to get dressed up and will come to the wardrobe to pick her outfit for the day.
Ama’s favourite colour is orange and her favourite teddy is Pumpkin, a bright orange pumpkin teddy she has had since she was a baby. She still sleeps with him every night. Her favourite snuggle blanket is also orange and she always prefers new toys in this colour too. Dogs are not fully colour blind as some believe, but rather see in limited colours so Ama’s perception of orange is probably as a very dark yellow.
