The reverse is a lively depiction of a little cutie – a Chihuahua. The other dog is shown in relief, together with some decorative motifs in the background. Considered the smallest breed of dog in the world, Chihuahuas are comical, entertaining, and loyal little dogs, though possessing a quirky and eccentric personality. There’s a reason we call dogs man’s best friends. A dog is handing out pure love and loyalty, asking absolutely nothing in return.
