On a past Animal Planet show called Too Cute, the narrator pronounced it "chi-wah-wah." Now I am listening to an audio book about a chihuaha-dachshund mix. That book's author, who also is the reader, pronounces it "chi-wow-wuh." Since the breed is named after a city in Mexico, I assume only one pronunciation is correct. Does anyone know why somebody would say it wrong? How am I supposed to pronounce it?
