puppy update

To see a picture of the new puppy – still nameless – try this link. He’s the little guy on the left in the second picture from the bottom. http://www.myspace.com/chiapom  UPDATE: They must have sold the last puppy because the photo gallery isn't there any more. There's just one picture, and that's not our puppy, it's our puppy's brother. Ours looks like a Trybble from the old Star Trek show, i.e. his fur is long and fluffy, not short like the one in the photo. Right color though.

What a cutie!
They both are! How lucky you guys are! Makes me want little dogs.

Was lying in bed the other night talking to dh about what kind of dog he wants. Me, I want a medium-sized one (big enough to play with, small enough to travel in the car with) and I like mutts (being one myself) but he has ideas. I'm kind of into letting the pets find us but time will tell. The kids haven't asked for a dog since we buried the just-this-side-of-feral cat.

Hi Penni. Isn't he adorable?

My family always had big dogs, so I'm not sure where Amanda got this idea from, but these little guys are definitely charmers. The puppy is so tiny, he can actually sit on my lap and still leave room for my laptop, so I'm writing this with him snoozing within inches of the screen.

When he's awake, he's hilarious. He's fast -- half-run, half-hop -- but never in a straight line. Sideways, backwards, it's all the same to him. He's torturing poor Peanut by trying to nurse, which is futile for oh so many reasons.

And he makes Peanut seem so big, when he's just a chihuahua, albeit a furry one.

I've always liked mutts too, and when Paul and I finally get another dog, I'm sure that's what it will be. We still aren't over Murphy yet, though. The little visitors help, but Murph was such a pal...

We went to tour an open house down the street today, and the owner had the oddest assortment of dogs -- a pekinese, an overweight basset hound, and three mutts. She does animal rescue, but she isn't very good at it because she just keeps the animals! Can't bear to part with them. It's so sweet.

Thanks for stopping by!

LOL on the neighbor who fosters the dogs and then can't give them up! I've tho't about doing that, decided the kids are too young and they'd get too attached but even when they're older (or all grown and out of the house), I can imagine me getting to attached!

And I didn't think that I liked little dogs (had a great-aunt when I was little who always had little rat-rat dogs who just were ikky dogs) and then a friend got a couple of GREAT little dogs and I thought, "hmmm, I could go for a dog like this." I think I just want a dog that fits into the family . . .

Re: What a cutie!
Right, that was my experience too. The only chihuahua I ever met for the first forty odd years of my life was a nervous, pinch-faced, skinny fella named Tippy. My parents' friends owned him, and when we'd go there to visit as kids, they'd leave him running around, but he never really seemed like a dog to us. And it was sorta vice versa b/c he never really acknowledged us as humans either.

So when Manda announced she was getting a chihuahua, I was honestly stymied. Then I met him, and it was love at first sight. And the puppy's even cuter, if that's possible.

Do you watch the dog shows? Or the Puppy Bowl? Now that I like small dogs, I'm really charmed by those Norfolk terriers and the like. Except I think they're smarter than I am, and I don't enjoy that in an animal!
