Happy New Year's Eve

I hope you're all excited and getting ready to have a paw-rty tonight. At my home, we ran into a tiny problem: Turbulent geysers between our driveway pavers and beautiful falls off of our roof made M oh-so-happy to wake up this morning . . . you try finding a plumber on NY's eve ;)

May this be the last thing that can go wrong in 2010

However, due to the fact that today IS a jolly good day, or at least it should be, I'm going to share with you, my furiends, especially the vocal and musically inclined ones, a lovely Pedro video.

Squeal for us, you little angel of music!!!

What Do Tiny Dogs Do During A Widstorm?

Tiny dogs, like chihuahua puppies, don't do well in cold weather.

 They need a warm

to fall asleep in.

The One Where I Made A Really Smart Decision

Pedro, the chihuahua puppy has taken over our lives. As soon as he was told this was his forever home, the little possessed pup decided to make himself more comfortable. Here I was, just having gotten used to having a new sissy, Frankie the chiweenie, to share my heated dog beds with, and now this! M is a rescuer at heart and all she cares about is that we are all loved and cared for, but I'm not easy to please. I'm a diva, so . . .


How am I going to make it through these holidays?
 He is so clueless!

 See what I mean?

Of course none of this is Frankie's fault . . . yet

I'm the smartest one out of this pack, that's for sure.

My Favorite Brother

My favorite brother is NOT Pedrito the chihuahua puppy. It's my other brother; the one who lives in Europe. I miss him a lot. He loves me and gives me lots of attention when he's in town. He's a giant. He weighs 62.5 times my weight! He is also M's favorite son, so the house is filled with joy when he's around.

 He is hilarious

 Has a large, warm, and comfy lap for me to sit on

 He can be silly at times too

 "Get out of here!"

 I look up to my brother.

He's the best and I don't want him to leave ever again.

What Happened To The Elf's Hat After Christmas

Now that we're all clear as to what happened to the little demon elf, let's take a closer look at his tiny costume . . . 

The chihuahua puppy can't wait for next Christmas. He thinks of his costumes as yummy dog chews.

What happens to Santa's Elves The Day After Christmas?

Note: When Pedro accepted his new forever home, he was well aware of the "inconveniences" of becoming a blog dog.

If The Sandal Don't Fit . . .

. . . you must acquit!

The Sandal Saga Continued

I say he's guilty

With the holidays, family coming into town, house-guests, cooking, cleaning, dinners hosted at our home, and eleven cats and dogs, don't expect any proper blogging for a few days. Just enjoy your holidays.

Petco Lockdown

¡ Ay Caramba ! Pedro, the chihuahua puppy did it again. M took him to puppy playtime at our local Petco, as she tries to do every Monday, in order to "socialize" him. Yeah, right. Last time he was there, he bit a bulldog on its head. M apologized profusely to the owner, a gracious lady, and luckily there were no vet bills involved. Yesterday, instead of biting his playmates, Pedro decided he was small enough to get out of the enclosure used for puppy playtime. M was busy yapping away with the other dog owners, when she noticed the trouble-child had left. The store was on instant alert, the doors sealed shut, and the wonderful employees got on the PA and started making announcements.
Pedro returned on his own, looking terrified and rather upset with M for ditching him!!!
Petco-peace was once again restored, but class was dismissed early (huh). M is wondering when she and Pedro will be kicked out for good . . .

"Wasn't me."

Holiday Pet Hazards

I got a lovely email from my vet that I'd like to share with you. It's about keeping us safe during the holidays.

Holiday hazards  |  How to keep your pet safe

Electric cords:    Keep all electric cords securely taped down or out of reach of your pet. Dogs and cats may chew dangling wires and be burned or electrocuted.

Ornaments:    Hang ornaments out of reach of your pet. Dogs, especially, may eat ornaments or wire hangers, which can get caught in the stomach and intestines.

Chocolate:    Keep all holiday foods away from your pet. Chocolate contains ingredients (e.g., caffeine) that can be lethal to dogs and cats.

Tinsel, ribbon, and string:    Make sure these are kept out of reach and properly disposed of. If swallowed, any of these can require emergency surgery to remove. Tinsel also has sharp edges that can cut the mouth.

Lilies, other flowers, and houseplants:    Prevent your pets from eating plants or flower arrangements. Lilies are very poisonous to cats.

Christmas tree:    Put the tree in a pet-safe room or monitor your pet when he or she is around the tree. Dogs and cats may eat the needles (even from artificial trees) or drink the water at the base of the tree, which can be toxic (especially if it contains preservatives).

In many cases, if your pet has eaten or drunk something toxic, warning signs will include gastrointestinal problems, such as vomiting and diarrhea. Other signs may include tiredness and lack of appetite, especially in cats that have eaten lilies. If your pet shows any of these signs, or if you think he or she has eaten something dangerous but is not showing any signs yet, please call us right away. Treating your pet as soon as possible is essential!

See? The email contained rather useful information, and even if all your pawrents know all about holiday hazards, it wouldn't hurt to print out this list for their house guests!

Love Goat Says

Today, we interrupt our usual blogging for two reasons: 1. ATT has yet to fix our internet issues and we're  all fed up going to furiends' homes to get to post and 2. The "Love Goat" has a request:

I wanted to wish everyone HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!

Chiweenie Demands Own Dog Calendar

After publishing my personal chihuahua calendar, Frankie, the brindle chiweenie, threw a fit. She said that enough is enough and that between all the new rescues, adoptions, and work, she feels left out. She put all four paws down and demanded a photo shoot in the hopes she will publish her own dog calendar. See, that's what happens when "mutts" suddenly became "designer dogs"!

Chiweenie Pictures

I'm not so sure M will oblige and give Frankie, the chiweenie, her own dog calendar, but, at least for now, brindle-bum is appeased.

Po(o)p Art

M's nose was not mistaken. The problem was that she kept looking down . . . 
Small dog potty training tips: is challenging during the cold and rainy winter months. Tiny dogs get cold outside. It's easier to use potty training pads. Puppy training takes time.

Chihuahua Pictures | Pedro's Puzzlement

After sharing today's chihuahua pictures, Pedro, the chihuahua puppy, has a question.

I'm an innocent, barely three month old, chihuahua puppy. Why does Twinkie call me "terrorista"?
