ONE TIME GOOD DOG

In the past I think we have discussed some of my attributes. There is something else I would like to add to my list of “Why Chuck is Great”. I am a vision of patience, an angel in waiting, the epitome of quiet during the chaos. When there is food involved I know you all think of me as a little dog/pig, however when dinner rolls around, it is I who is calm and quiet. I wait patiently for the moment when I am released to scarf! While the big dogs are barking like crazy, Lacey is howling and Cayenne is screeching like a banshee, you will find me quietly waiting for my dinner to be served. This may be hard for you to believe but it is true. So if you needed something else to add to your list of why you like me so much, this will probably do it. In the future I may share some other fleeting moments when I am a good dog, but I don’t want to share it all at once. It will seem like it happens more often if I make a big deal out of each individual behavior. This also means that I can’t think of anything else right now.

THE LUCK OF THE CHIHUAHUA?

DON'T PINCH ME- I AM WEARING GREEN (+ I WILL BITE YOU)
As our Irish holiday is upon us, I thought this might be a good time to review how lucky I am. This year I will not be converting to being an Irish Chihuahua. I am just going to share in the luck of the Irish and hope that I don’t have to eat a shamrock to get it. (Unless Shamrocks taste like ham) I am so lucky that I have a good home and I get to do whatever I want even if I am not supposed to. I am free to howl at my leisure and run around like an idiot and I enjoy those moments. I am free to scarf my food and beg for more and I am free to steal from the other dogs when they aren’t looking. I am not saying there aren’t consequences to my sometimes awful behavior, but I am lucky in that I don’t have to care. Please enjoy your St. Patrick’s Day and I will share my Chihuahua luck with you. Who knows, you might start howling at work and steal your co-workers lunch and not even care if you get caught. That is the true spirit of this lucky holiday.

DAYLIGHT LOSING TIME

I am trying to decide which hour I want to give up for daylight “savings” time. The way I see it, I will be forced to choose something that is super important to me. I know it can’t be my treat ball time, my eating time, my play time, my snarky time or my sleep time. That really doesn’t leave anything except for maybe poop time. If I give that up, I might have stomach issues and not be able to eat my ham which means I would be giving up ham time and you know that can’t happen. Yikes. I think I will skip it this year and just do all of my normal stuff. It isn’t like I have to be to work on time or set my alarm for some other appointment. My schedule is pretty much set no matter what the clock says. What will you be giving up for your hour of stolen time?

AND THE WINNER IS…….


AND THE WINNER IS .....HAM!
So I didn’t get to attend the big awards event because I was sleeping or eating or maybe pooping, but I was busy. I know that everyone gets all excited about clothing and who looks better than whom in whatever outfit they might be wearing, but I am not concerned with the fashion. I am only concerned with the outcome of the award. In other words, who won? I know that my absence from the awards probably ruined the entire event and I do feel bad so I am going to re-create a little portion of the awards gala that features ME. First I will perform a Chihuahua love song and then my name will be called for BEST IN SHOW. (Oh wait, that is a different award that I will win at another time.) I will then be asked to present an award to someone else and I will decline because that is about someone else winning. I will then accept my Oscar for my performance with my treat ball. I will receive a standing ovation and Chihuahuas all over the world will wish they were me. I bet you wish my version was the one you would have watched!

LITTLE FLAW?

Have you ever had a little personal flaw that you hope no one will notice? Maybe it is a hair that never goes the right way or a crooked nose or a small gap between your teeth. These little things can become big issues if you spend too much time dwelling on their existence. Most people would probably never even notice these little flaws and even if they did, they probably like you so much that they really wouldn’t care. I hope that you are the kind of person who doesn’t dwell on the little flaws of others and that you are a person who sees beyond looks and focuses on the inner beauty that each of us have. OK maybe I don’t possess inner beauty because I am rotten and naughty (according to my Mom and some of her stupid friends) but I would like you to focus on how cute I am and how my little tail wags when there is food nearby and how I howl from under my blanket and I don’t even know why. Please remember these little cute things as you notice my flaw in the picture below. It isn’t always there but sometimes…..there it is for the world to laugh at, but not you right?

LITTLE DOG BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

I AM READY TO EAT SOME BIRTHDAY STUFF!
Happy Birthday to me….. You can finish the song, but don’t say me, say you, ok?
It feels like I am celebrating something all of the time with all of the holidays, but a birthday is a pretty big deal. I am still fairly immature for my 8 years and I am happy to admit that. I think it is important to be a puppy forever. Just remember that when you want to scold your dog. They are acting from their “inner puppy!” You should be kinder to your own inner puppy and remember that peeing on the carpet just feels right sometimes. Eating things you aren’t supposed to eat is reckless and risky, but sometimes you just have to let loose. These are my wise words of wisdom on this auspicious occasion of MY birthday. I don’t want to spend too much time on this blog because I think I have a ham cake coming my way soon. So sorry to cut things short, but even as immature as I am, I still have my priorities straight!

MUST LOVE CHUCK

On this upcoming festive day of love I want you to think of me fondly. You know that I believe all of the holidays revolve around me and Valentines Day is no different. It is truly a day to love me the most! Here is how the day is going to work… you will bring me a heart shaped box of ham and I won’t be able to share because, well you know me. Then we will go for a drive and find a romantic spot overlooking the nearest pet store. We will then go inside and buy me some toys and stuff. We could also get some treats while we are there. Then we will go to a restaurant and have a nice quiet dinner that might involve the ham special. I will then want some dessert. Can I have cheesecake? Of course I can, it is my holiday!!! Are you excited for our date? I know I am! Happy Valentines Day to me!! And you of course!

I Heart Me!
THESE TOYS ARE FUN AND ALL, BUT WHERE IS MY HAM BOX OF LOVE?
