So Now's The Time...

Our VIH is telling us that this week is the week that we are finally going to get to meet our new sister. We are very excited to be welcoming a new member of the pack. We wonder what she will look like...

Hopefully she knows how to share kibble and Nylabones!

For The Record...

My ear is not your chew toy. Any second now I am going to lose the adorable sleepy face and go straight for your jugular. So I will ask nicely just once more... please let my ear go!

Does Diego Have Rabies?!?

Who, me? Nah... I just LOOOOOVE milk! Mooooooooo!

Daisy Plays Some Scrabble

Make your move, human!
Do I get the 9 points or do you?

Relaxing... with an Uninvited Friend

Why is it that when we are winding down from a busy day of sunbathing, treat eating, and Nylabone chewing, we suddenly become props in a imaginary photo shoot? Observe...

Somehow our VIH thinks she is making a statement by cleverly placing a squeaker toy on us, but we think it's just sad. Very, very sad.

My New Toy

The other day I got this FABULUS new toy. I heard my VIH call it a straw... what a wonderful chew toy it was! With its beautiful bright red coloring, it was just the right size for my pint-sized little paws.

Don't even think about it Bella. This straw is all mine!

VIH, what do you mean you want it back? I found it, fair and square!

Last Night

VIH, Whatchya Got There?

Mmmmm, that looks pretty darn tasty... Junior Mints, huh? I'll tell you what- how about a trade? One of your scrumptious Junior Mints in exchange for a wet Chi kiss?

VIH, have I told you lately how much I love you?

Always Be Prepared!

You never know when an emergency might strike... especially in California, where earthquakes are fairly common. So while humans stock up on their water and food, and ours makes sure she has plenty of kibble on hand for us, we make sure we have all of our reserves piled up and on hand...

Ah, yes, plenty of Nylabones and warm, soft blankets!!! We're ready for whatever Mother Nature might hurl at us.

Getting Ready for Halloween

Visiting our local pumpkin patch really helps us get in the mood for frightening festivities!!!

So I'm A Little Co-Dependent, Is That A Crime?

VIH, never mind the fact that we are on a beautiful beach on a wonderful sunny day. Never mind all the other dogs frolicking around me, wanting to play. Never mind the new Chi friends I could be making and the memories I could take with me always. I just have one question...

A Tender and Touching Moment, Brought to You By Diego...

Tell me this doesn't belong on a Chihuahua 2009 calendar... I'm Mr. January, baby!

Diego as a Hungry Wolf?

I'll let you be the judge.

Sitting Pretty

VIH... now that we have waited here patiently for you to take our picture, can you please take us on our walk now?

I'm Not Afraid of the Dark!!!

...but I could really use some cuddling right now!

Ode to Toilet Paper

Toilet paper happens to be one of our favorite toys. It's soft, there's a lot of it, and (much to the dismay of our VIH) pretty darn tasty. Here are a few of the reasons why toilet paper has such a special place in our hearts:

Any day that we can happen to snag some of this fluffy white goodness is a great day for us!

Mmmmm.... yea for toilet paper!!!

How do you spell unhappiness? D-R-E-M-E-L

Our VIH finally decided that she no longer wanted to take us in for nail trims. We are so thrilled about that! We hated, lets us say again HATED going in for nail trims. We'd go into this strange place with all these unusual puppy smells, and some stranger would pick us up and try to soothe us while they clip away pieces of our precious nails. Why humans think our nails need to be kept nice and short we have no idea. They work just fine for us!

Our moment of elation thinking that we were finally in the clear of all nail trims was soon cut short, no pun intended. Our VIH, being the "hands-on" owner that she is, decided that she would take it upon herself to see to it that our nails were paw perfect. Rather than trimming, she bought this strange and unusual device called a dremel. Have you heard of this thing before? Yeah, neither had we. Well, it would make this funny buzzing sound and she would put it up to each of our nails and we'd watch as little powdery flakes came from it. While we aren't too excited about having it done, at least we get a TREAT after it is all finished. You should listen to our VIH rant and rave about how perfectly short our nails are now. If only we had opposable thumbs... then we'd see how much she likes it!!!

Facing the ghastly DREMEL. Notice how our VIH is trying her best to calm me.

Trying my best to go to a happy place.

FYI, the licking is not because I am happy.

Why me?

I look calm and peaceful, but looks can be deceiving!

The World Is Not Pretty At 7am...

VIH, I want to go back to sleep! It's just too darn early to be awake and face the day!

Chihuahuas: A Retrospective

Awareness and Pondering the Meaning of Life



Sunday, September 21, 2008

We know it's been awhile...

We realize that we haven't been keeping our readers updated, and we give our sincerest of apologies. Life here with our VIH has been very busy. We've been soaking in the rays of the summer sun...


... and readying ourselves for the addition of a new one to the pack, but this one won't have all the cute fur and Chihuahua cuddliness that we possess. Our VIH is sporting a big tummy, and she tells us all the time that a baby is inside. How it's going to manage to get out of there we have no idea:

All we know is that her tummy makes a great resting spot and place to stand on. Our VIH is always trying to keep us from jumping on it, but if you were a Chihuahua, could you resist? It's like a perfect little trampoline!

In the heat of the summer...

Anyone up for a little dip (or dive) into the ocean?

One Hot Weekend!

These past few days have been soooo hot!!! Yesterday our VIH took us to the dog park to play with other Chihuahuas, and all we could do was pant and sit in the shade. We think she saw how hot we were because thankfully we didn't stay too long. We are very lucky that our home is air conditioned! Even though our native land of Mexico can get pretty warm in the summer months, our tiny bodies can still get pretty toasty! Lately we've just been laying around anywhere that seems less warm, spreading our legs out to let our tummies keep cool. It provides us some relief:

Hopefully it will start to cool down a bit soon!

VIH, is this where our toys go?

The Black Wonder At Play

Sometimes even SuperPuppies need to take a break from their strenuous daily duties to have a little fun! But as the Black Wonder I make doubly sure that no one can detect me, even at play:

Ready to play, I don the mask necessary for me to partake in such merriment.

And now that no one can see me, I PLAY!!! I will get you green plastic ring, you cannot escape from the BLACK WONDER!!!

The Truth Hurts

Bella as Roadkill?

Don't even ask. It's been a really rough day.

See How Well We Get Along?

Don't even think about it, Daisy. That toy on the other side of the bed is so mine once this picture is taken!

The Plight of the Chihuahua

Maybe you are not aware of this, but being a Chi is very difficult work. All that running, barking and playing can really take the energy right out of you! As you can see in this picture:

Here my VIH has to hold me up for the picture! I am soooo tired that I can't even spare the two seconds to pose and look cute for the camera. It's sad, I tell you. And then there's this one:

Look at my little head! It's all lopsided, I can't even keep it up (or my ears, for that matter)! And my eyes are literally drifting off, despite the flash. You need to walk in the paws of a Chihuahua to truly understand.

Daisy Becomes A Gamer

VIH, I am very good at this game... can I play, please? My turn, my turn!

Bella Gets Squished

What does a Chi need to do to get some sleep around here? It's nice Diego is so comfortable and resting; meanwhile, I can hardly breathe!!!

Bella Puts Her Best Face Forward
