Hi there,

Can you think of anything that scared her or is she sore some where? Could she have eaten anything? Dogs' hearing is much stronger than ours. Were there any loud noises that didn't seem so loud to you but might have to her that scared her? Let me know of anything you can think of.

If she heard people that she cared about arguing would that make her do this?

Yes. Chihuahua's are very sensitive. They sense our emotions very quickly. XXXXX XXXXX's are more nonchalant about things, but a Chihuahua is not. She will calm down soon when everyone else does.
