Sun Worshippers

We have a whole house filled with soft couches, cushy pillows, and plush doggie beds. And what's the hottest spot in the house (literally)?

Aaaaaah.... praise to the warmth of the sun!!!

Talk to the Paw

A kiss, VIH? Talk to the Paw.

Bella... part Chihuahua, part Psycho?

I don't know why baths make me crazy. I can be in the best of moods, but get me wet and suddenly another part of me takes shape. I become completely insane. I have only one goal... GET ALL WATER OFF ME ASAP. My VIH took some pictures of me in action for your viewing pleasure.

What are you looking at?

In mid shake. Water, be gone!

In rare form, hard at work ridding my luscious coat of WATER.

Notice the crazy, psycho ball of fluff in the corner of the couch? Yeah, that's me.
P.S. For the record, I did not pee on the couch. That is water I got off from my coat.

Santa and his 8... Chihuahuas?

"When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer"

Many of you are familiar with these words. Heck, lawns all over the country are decorated for the holiday season with plastic reindeer and Santa in tow. But what if, instead of reindeer, Chihuahuas led the way on the most important of all nights, Christmas Eve? How would Christmas be different?
Don't get us wrong, the reindeer is a fabulous animal... and because it is about 50 times our size, we aren't about to go around insulting them. But we chihuahuas are pretty fast animals, and a pack of Chis could do the same amount of work as a herd of reindeer in about half the time. Plus, we'll eat anything, so Santa can share cookies and milk with us. What an ease on the American dollar now that homes will not have to stockpile on carrots to leave by the fireplace for us!

"So on this Christmas Eve when you look to the sky,
Listen real carefully when you see Santa flying by,
You might be surprisingly shocked by what you might hear,
Not a "Ho! Ho! Ho!" or the sound of reindeer,
Rather ever so faintly through the cold winter's night,
You just might hear the "Woof!" of a Chihuahua... what a delight!"

Yes, we like these words much better.

Chihuahuas... the next reindeer?

A Special Holiday Song...

You know Bruiser, and Ducky, and
Coco, and Lou.
Ren, and Tinkerbell, and
Mimi, and Nunu.
But do you recall
The most famous Chihuahua of all?

Bella, the Long Haired Chihuahua
Had a very pretty coat
And if you ever saw it
You couldn’t even help but dote.

All of the other Chihuahuas
Used to laugh and call her names.
They never let poor Bella
Play in any ‘huahua games.

Then one foggy Christmas Eve
VIH came to say:
“Bella, with your coat so long and free,
Won’t you strut your stuff with me?”

Then all the Chihuahuas loved her,
As they shouted out with glee,
Bella, the Long Haired Chihuahua
You’ll go down in history!

How many???

How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Tootsie Pop?

The world may never know.

Chihuahuas in the White House?

We just came back last week from a very exciting trip to the nation's capital. We got to help pass a few laws, sit in on a Senate meeting, and even got to help out the President. Who knew Chihuahuas could be so powerful? Maybe we should run next year for President.... we can see it now:


What's that smell?

Once you pop, you can't stop...

I love this thing called bubble gum. I don't really like the gum itself, per say, but I LOVE the bubbles it makes when my humans chew it. It's like destroying perfection in a world full of chaos... there's this perfectly round, shiny bubble, and I am in total control over its life or death. As a chihuahua we take simple things and give them extremely deep meanings in order to create meaning in our lives. Paging Dr. Freud!!!

Bubble... so shiny... so smooth... so pretty... I will destroy you now!

The Sky is Falling!!!

It's true, it's true, I can see it now! Run for cover! Save your lives while there is still time! I better go and get just one more treat before it's too late! (Maybe there's enough time for me to snag two!)

Peanut Butter, Creamy Goodness

I don't know who came up with this stuff humans call peanut butter, but boy is it good! And what's great about it is that it lasts and lasts and lasts as long as my little tongue can keep licking. I should be careful though, I can see myself getting addicted to it if I am not careful. One day you'll find me in the back of a dirty alley, passed out face deep in an empty jar of peanut butter.

Addiction is a terrible, terrible thing.

Sitting Pretty

Can I just have my treat now please? What do you want me to do next, ride a tricycle and juggle?

Romeo, Oh Romeo!

I am busy getting ready for my new role on Broadway. It's a very special play, a spin on one of Shakespeare's finest, chihuahua style. What do you think of my Juliet costume?

"Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou, Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name."

Gotta Have It!!!

How cute is this gift idea from As chihuahuas, Kate Ruber has become a GOD to us!!! What logo for a company could be cuter than a PINK chi with a huge diamond around their neck? You could put it on toilet paper and it would still rock!

Chihuahuas... The First Pilgrims???

Many of you do not know the TRUE story of Thanksgiving. Allow us to bestow our knowledge upon you. Many, many years ago the first ships came to America. These ships were filled with CHIHUAHUAS. When we landed we were greeted by Native American Indians. We showed them we were a peaceful and loving pack with a bone offering. They seemed very impressed with our innate hunting skills and natural instincts for survival. We spent many, many months sharing with each other what we knew. Finally, on one crisp autumn day, we met at a place called Chihuahua Rock (many of you may think it is Plymouth Rock, but that is incorrect) and had a feast fit for an alpha dog!

Still don't believe us? Here's proof positive we Chihuahuas were at the first Thanksgiving. Look at the photo below:

This is one artist we definitely endorse...

So big... so beautiful... so CHIHUAHUA!!!

The sea was angry that day my friends...

"Like an old man trying to send back soup in a deli. I got about 50 feet out and suddenly the great beast appeared before me. I tell you he was ten stories high if he was a foot. As if sensing my presence, he let out a great bellow. I said, "Eeeasy, big fella!". And then as I watched him struggling, I realized that something was obstructing its breathing. From where I was standing I could see directly into the eye of the great fish."
"What, what did you do next?"
"Well, then from out of nowhere a huge tidal wave lifted me, tossed me like a cork, and I found myself right on top of him, face to face with the blowhole! I could barely see from the waves crashing down upon me, but I knew something was there. So I reached my hand in, felt around, and pulled out the obstruction."
"What is that a Titleist?"
"A hole in one!"

Christmas Cards and Chihuahuas Do Not Mix

"VIH, you aren't doing anything important. Play with me."

"Oh, that's interesting. Whatchya got there?"

"Trying to write? That's nice. PET ME!!!"

"I'm not in your way at all, am I?"

If I Put This Under My Pillow...

Do you think the Tooth Fairy will give me $1???

Diego's Guide to Getting Your Foot (er, Paw) Out the Door

1. Utilize THE PAW. It is very effective.

2. Close your eyes and transport yourself to happier times as you painfully squeeze your head through an opening half its size.

3. Once you get your head through, you're golden. If I get to this point I am guaranteed a free ride. Sweet!

Forget "Where's Waldo?", Where's Daisy?

Can you find me in this picture?

Here's a hint in case you are stumped:

Here's what I love best about the whole situation. I snuggle myself up on a cold night in the warmest and cuddliest of blankets, and my brother and sister decide to take it upon themselves to start playing and jumping right where I am!

10. We won't complain that you hog the bed.
9. We can easily fit in the overhead storage bin of a 747 airliner.
8. We make small pieces of poop.
7. If you are a a guy, our adorable looks can get you girls.
6. If you are a girl, our adorable looks can get you lots of friends. (We'd love to say guys, but the sad truth is that they don't dig us as much as the girls do.)
5. We'll definitely outlive that ugly Shar-Pei you've been thinking of getting.
4. We'll love you 'til the end and never leave you.
3. What other dog can you think of that you can drench in total bling? (And we still look good... sorry, toy poodles.)
2. It is a scientific proven fact that owning a chihuahua can increase your sex appeal and financial status.
1. Two words: DAMN CUTE!!!

A Crime was Committed

Please allow me to properly set the scene of the crime...

It was a cloudy day on November 6th. One of those days where walking is the last thing on your mind. The type of day where'd you rather curl up with a good bone rather than perform physical exercise. My VIH straps harnesses on the girls and I and out we go. We reach our destination... the place with a lot of grass (the park, as I have heard it called). We make a couple of laps around, but something is wrong. Terribly wrong. I try to tell my VIH by stopping the walking process, and what does she do? She literally forces me to keep going. Finally, after a few minutes she got the hint and picked me up a bit. But by then it was too late. The crime had been committed. It wasn't until we got home that my VIH realized what happened, when she picked me up to take my harness off me. There they were... little droplets of blood on her pretty pink pants. She cuddled me and told me how sorry she was, but it was too late. No apologies could fix the permanent damage done to my psyche.

Tending to my wounds.

Evidence straight from the scene of the crime.


Lookie what my VIH got me!!! She told me that someone in our chihuahua group gave it to her, but all I can say is that these threads were meant for my slender, stylin' body! Ow, don't touch me, 'cuz I am just too hot!

The Look of Hunger

Wait... I hear it... the crinkling of plastic that comes from only one place in the house... and then... what's that? Opening of the microwave door, that beautiful click and then shut. Beep Beep Beep as the time is punched in. Ah, yes, it is truly happening! I eagerly get up from my place of slumber on the couch and approach the kitchen, donning the cutest and lightest of gaits as I go. Maybe my VIH will see me prance oh so merrily over to her and that will score me some points? I watch her in the kitchen, as she grabs one of those things humans eat off of and suddenly... bleep bleep bleep. Could it be true? My nose senses it before my eyes do. It smells so delicious, and I watch steam rise as my VIH takes it out. She walks over to the couch to dine on her delightful food. I jump up next to her and sit, so obediently, thinking maybe if I look at her with my prettiest face I will be lucky enough to score some grub. And... at last... she sees me and tears off a piece... ooooh, so tasty, so delicious, MUST HAVE MORE IT IS SOOOO GOOD!!!

Where did our VIH go?

We hate it when our VIH leaves us. It makes us very sad. When will she come back? How will we make it in this harsh, cruel world alone? Left to face the elements, with only a couch to lounge on, toys to play with, and fresh water to drink? Life is just so unfair! VIH, please come home soon! We'll be waiting here for you!

Watch out behind you...

No situation too scary, I will do anything to make sure justice is served!

Braving the darkest of waters, intelligence and skill are my companions.

AT LAST!!! Fear not, I will save you, for I am THE BLACK WONDER!!!
(Even though I just went through all that to save a bottle of shampoo. When you are a chihuahua you have to start small, okay?)

Hot Time on a Saturday Night!!!

My New Favorite Toy

Today my humans gave me something called a straw to play with. This straw was one pretty cool toy. I could hardly get it in and out the doggie door, but I still had a blast with it.
