BASEBALL, HOTDOGS AND CHUCK


I think someone important has been reading my blogs and listening to my wise suggestions. In the past I have discussed having a sports team named after me. Well we are getting closer. I just discovered that there is a minor league baseball team called the El Paso Chihuahuas. I just know that this is all my doing. I am the spokesdog for my other little hairy Mexican friends and now we have our own team! I am a little bit surprised that I was not asked to be the mascot or the owner or the ball retrieval dog. I am sure this is just an oversight on their part so I will be expecting a call any day now. Maybe they actually want me to play on the team. I will have to think about that. I can’t hurt my little paws playing baseball and risk not being able to write my blog. I think I will only accept an upper management or celebrity position. I am pretty sure that we can negotiate a fair salary that includes a lifetime of ham and hot dogs! I won’t budge on that you know!

CHUCK
Hey batter, batter!

This could be me right?

BRIDGE TROLL

HERE SHE IS WAITING TO POUNCE
I know that it has been said that I can be a little on the snarky side, but I must say my “friend” Dutchess takes the snark prize. She waits in the bathroom for an unsuspecting victim to stick their head in the doorway or to actually try to come into the bathroom and she goes off like a small dog bomb. It is not pretty. There is lots of snarling and growling and then one of the poor big dogs comes running down the hallway away from the hideous creature in the bathroom. Just between you and me, I am a little bit envious. She is like a Tasmanian devil and all of the big dogs are just a little bit afraid of catching her on a bad day. She could go off for no reason at all and leave a dust cloud of fur in her wake. At other times she appears docile and even friendly so it is a little bit confusing to say the least. One might compare her to a human friend who is bipolar and unable to control their moods. I know they have medications for people with that disorder, but I don’t know about dogs. If she got all evened out, we wouldn’t be able to call her the Bridge Troll anymore. I am not recommending any medications at this time. It is much more fun to watch the show without any restraint from the Troll.

HERE SHE LOOKS TOTALLY HARMLESS, FRIENDLY EVEN?

USE YOUR INDOOR VOICE!

I AM TOO CUTE TO BE QUIET!
The other night, it was time for my treat ball so I howled and wailed and let everyone in the neighborhood know that it was time for me to do something special. My howl was loud enough to curl your toenails. It was a good one. My Mom kind of yelled at me and told me to “use my indoor voice.” What does this mean exactly? What is wrong with my outdoor voice? How do you separate the two? If I am going to howl, I feel it should be worth the energy I put into it and I am obviously trying to make a statement of some kind. I don’t think the other dogs have an indoor voice either. They bark like they are outside competing with the local coyotes. (talk about noisy). Anyway, my little feelings are kind of hurt. My Mom certainly doesn’t appreciate my howling gusto and I don’t appreciate her yelling at me. She should use her indoor voice too. That is only fair right?

Shhhhhhhhhh!
I NOT SAYING ANYTHING! IT IS A YAWN I SWEAR!

THE DOG DAYS OF SUMMER

Summer isn’t over yet right? I keep hearing rumors about kids going back to school and the days getting shorter, but I am not yet ready to turn in the beach towel. I should maybe speed up my enjoyment of the summer festivities and spend a little less time under the blanket and more on the lawn chair. I think that a good beer and some suntan lotion will be a good start, but then I will probably need some food because tanning makes you hungry. (Actually, everything makes me hungry) It is a good excuse though to order up some pool side snacks. I hope that none of my other dog friends notice my little summer snack camp because I am not sharing. I should be ok because most of them lay in the shade during the day. They are not ready for prime time tanning and I am not ready to be generous with my pool snacks! You know I don’t actually have a pool, but I am hoping that my Mom will go out and get me one now that I have mentioned it in my blog. I just need a little Chihuahua pool with a little diving board and a flotation device. I hope I get it soon since there isn’t much time! Hurry up and get out there yourselves, but get your own pool and your own snacks and know that you will not fit on my flotation device. Wow that sounded just a little bit snarky. I must have had too much sun!

LATHER ME UP AND OPEN MY BEER PLEASE!

MACHO MAN

I share my big bed with two girls. I know it sounds like I am a sultan or a king, but it really isn’t all that it is hyped up to be. They step on me when I am under my blanket, they lick my ears and it tickles, they spat over silly things like who gets to be closest to me. (I think that is what it is about, but who knows when girls are involved.) Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to have another small boy dog. Would we be acting all tough and macho all of the time trying to impress everyone or would we talk about sports and beer and stuff. I don’t know. Would one of us have to be in charge all of the time?  If so I am pretty sure it would have to be me. I think that Alpha Little Dog would be the name that the boy dog would have to call me. I think if he called me Chuck that would be a little bit disrespectful when I am supposed to be in charge. I know I would not like sharing my clothes with him. I certainly won’t share my food or my big bed. I don’t think that I would be a good room mate for a boy dog. I guess I will stick with the girls. Believe it or not, I think there would be less drama.

THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY

THIS IS A GOOD LOOK FOR BOTH OF US!
As most of you know, I am somewhat of a Doctor Groupie. I have many Doctors at my Mom’s work who know me a little bit too well if you know what I mean. I may be their groupie, but they are my fans. I have had my picture taken with all of them except for one. I am not sure how he escaped my attention all of this time. Dr. Macon Miles has worked with Internal Medicine for quite some time now and he has somehow avoided having a photo op with ME. Maybe he is just a little bit shy or he is overly astounded with my greatness and was afraid to be outshined in a photo with me. OK, maybe he has just been busy. I guess he has other dogs to look out for besides me. Dr. Miles is super duper smart and he performs little doggie and kitty miracles on a daily basis. I am ok having my picture taken with him but I would prefer to not need any of his other skills. I will admire his smartness from afar and he can admire my star status by reading my blog sometimes and no one even has to know. It will be our secret!

CALL OF THE WILD

As a little bitty dog in this big world, I sometimes get to see other animals that are a little bit wild. They roam free through the pastures and don’t answer to anyone. Sometimes I think it might be cool if I could be like that with no restrictions or expectations. However, who would write my blog? I don’t see any of my other canine housemates being able to take over the task. I think I will just observe the wildlife from afar and enjoy my important life and embrace my responsibilities. My Mom got a picture of a little wild bunny out by our barn. He was just a baby. My Mom loves baby bunnies (whatever) and she wanted to capture the little thing in its natural environment. This bunny is so small that if it were a dog, it would be a little Chihuahua like me. So I guess the little Chihuahua bunny deserves to be in my blog.
