SQUIRREL!!!!!



Every evening before bedtime, we are given little mini dog biscuits that were made especially for dogs like us. It is a good thing that they are tiny because I would certainly choke on anything bigger. Anyway, my Mom puts mine in various spots on the dog bed so that it takes me a few minutes to find them. That way I can’t shove all of them in my mouth at once and have the before mentioned choking. Cayenne gets her biscuits in a little pile. She then snarfs them all into her mouth and carries them into another room. She is like a Chihuahua/Squirrel mix. I am not sure why she does this. Maybe she thinks that I will steal them, but I would never do that. I just wonder how she gets them all in her mouth at once and how she has the ability not to eat them in the moment. This seems very weird to me. When the food is in your mouth you eat it. You don’t carry it around with you and then eat it in another location. I feel the same way when Lacey takes her food out of the dish and deposits it on the floor. Why would it taste any better on the floor than it does right from the dish? I personally don’t like to waste any time getting that food into my belly where it belongs. Who cares if I barely get to taste it. I am sure that it would taste good if I actually chewed it. I am just glad I am not a squirrel!

SURGERY SUPER HEROES

LOOK I AM A LITTLE MINI SUPER HERO!
I wanted to take this opportunity to talk about the Surgery Super Heroes Fund. My Mom’s work place is full of people who really love dogs and cats. They do lots of surgeries and sometimes they do surgeries on animals that don’t have homes. Since I love my home so much it makes me sad that there are animals without homes or dog parents to love them. I may be sort of a selfish kind of guy and maybe I am a little bit spoiled, but I am able to feel compassion I think. That is why I am sharing my blog with the special donation fund. I don’t really ask my fans for much, but if you are able to make a small donation it would mean the world to the dogs who need some help! I won't even ask you for ham this week, but don't expect that to last very long! Thanks for being an animal lover!

A PITIFUL PORTRAIT OF REJECTION

This is a picture of me when I found out that my friend Becky didn’t want me to come over for the 4th of July. In my e-mail request, I even offered to be her “Little Sparkler”. We don’t get much quality time together and I know she has other dogs to attend to but come on, it’s me! I think life hands us little disappointments so that the good times are even better. Yeah, well whatever. I don’t want any disappointments and I am pretty sure that my blog followers want to see a happy Chuck. Not a depressed, despondent or morose Chuck who is wallowing in the wake of rejection. This week you need to send Becky a note to let her know how disappointed you are in her for not letting me get my way. I really am unable to handle any situation where I am not able to be the top dog. Even if I am the top short dog, the view is the same from the top. Right?

DOG INDEPENDENCE DAY

I AM READY FOR MY POOL AND MY DRINK AND MY FOOD...
(NOT REALLY IN THAT ORDER)
What would be the ideal 4th of July in the dog world. How would it be different from the people version? Well I for one would change a few things. There would not be any fireworks. They are noisy and smelly and stupid. There are many dogs that get freaked out by the noisy, sparkly and popping things that you people seem to like so much. We would also like for the food thing to start earlier and go all day long. This is not an afternoon barbeque, but an all -day dog style buffet. There would not need to be any changes to the menu. We can use yours, but we want free access to all of the tasty food options. This would mean that you need tables with shorter legs to accommodate those of us who are height challenged. We would also like access to your swimming pools and flotation devices. Some of us would like to float around the pool with a drink and maybe some cool little dog sunglasses. If it isn’t asking too much, we would also like to have live entertainment featuring music that reflects our interests. For instance…. “Ham in the House” or “Big Bones for Little Dogs” or maybe “Dogs Like Big Steaks and I Cannot Lie.” These would be some songs that would make us howl and dance throughout the day in between our naps. Please consider changing the holiday venue just this one time so that we can celebrate as only dogs can. (Cats are not included in this celebration. You can do theirs some other year.)

YARD CREATURE

IT MAY LOOK LIKE I AM HAVING FUN, BUT THIS ISN'T LIKE A RIDE IN A CAR YOU KNOW!

The other night I went outside to do my business and there was something super scary in the back yard. I barked and growled to scare it away, but it just stayed there and didn’t move. My Mom finally came outside to see what was going on and then she started laughing and went back in the house. I just want to say that I was a little bit upset by this. Here I am protecting my house from an imposing intruder and my Mom laughs at me. I should be given a medal of courage or a public assembly or something. I think that if your dog alerts you to danger that you should praise them and give them ham. Next time, I will just hold my bark and stifle my growl until the giant creature takes over my house and then my Mom will probably yell at me for being so quiet. I don’t see an up side to this situation, do you?

BIG DOG BLOG



The big dogs are stealing the blog for the week. While Chuck was running around chasing his treat ball, the big dogs decided to take to the keyboard and do a little summary of their feelings for Chuck.
Here are just a few of their shared thoughts and feelings regarding the famous blogger…

Serra: “Chuck is really small, but he eats like a cow”







 Bleu: “I try to pretend he isn’t there, but he keeps bugging me and bugging me until I can't take it anymore and I have to bark at him. Very annoying!”


 Buddy: “I don’t mind him I guess, but when he runs under my legs it kind of freaks me out and then I need therapy.”





Clayton: “He stays under his blanket most of the time, but when he does come out I wish he would go back in.”





Buck: “I know we were puppies together, but he was a little jerk then and he is a little jerk now. I turned out great so we know that he is the one who has a problem. “





Thank you for letting us share our deepest feelings for our furry friend Chuck. Please just don’t tell him anything ok? He can be super snarky when he is mad you know!

KING OF THE HOUSE


SUPER PITIFUL!
After dinner and after I have had a little post dinner nap, my Mom puts the big dogs in another room and we little dogs get to run around the house. I of course get my treat ball and Cayenne acts like an idiot with her fluffy ball. My Mom kicks it around for her and she screeches and yipes as she jumps, twirls and spins to catch the ball. Not that I am paying attention, but if I were I would say that she is pretty good and catches that stupid ball almost every time. Lacey finds her favorite spots to pee in the house and we all pretend like we don’t know she is doing it. She is a little bit sensitive so no yelling around Lacey. Geez- Anyway, the whole point of this story is that I am out and the big dogs are cooped up. It just feels satisfying to me somehow to see their big sad faces as I run by them gobbling up snacks from my ball. There is a gate between me and them so I can make little faces at them and do other annoying stuff and sometimes I even get them to growl at me. That is the best because, again, I am out and they are in. This is probably trivial and stupid, but I enjoy my evening Chihuahua power trip. My tip to you is for you to get yourself a treat ball and show off a little bit,
FROM THIS ANGLE, I ACTUALLY LOOK LIKE A BIG DOG- DON'T YOU THINK?
