LOVE IS IN THE AIR.....

THIS IS ME AS A HANDSOME LOVE DOG!

Love is in the air....what does that mean? Does love float around or hang out over your head? I am not sure, but I love ham and it is not in the air, it is in my belly! My Mom loves me, but I don't see that in the air either. I see it when she gives me ear scratches or a little rub down. So no more of this air stuff. I want something more tangible and obvious. For Valentines Day, I would like my usual "Heart o' Ham." It is a large heart box full of ham. (The chocolates have been removed for my safety)
If you see some love in the air, let me know and I will convert it into something you can eat!

CHUCK
HERE IS A PICTURE OF LOVE IN THE AIR! IT LOOKS NOTHING LIKE HAM!
Love Dog!

JUST A LITTLE PILL

THIS IS ME WHEN I HEARD I HAD TO TAKE PILLS-
BEFORE I WAS INTRODUCED TO THE PILL POCKETS!
Have you ever had to take pills? Pills that taste yucky? I know it is not fun and I can't wait until I am pill-free. Luckily I don't taste the yucky pill because my Mom wraps it in a pill pocket. These are yummy, stinky treats that have a trap door where little pills can be hidden. These little snacks are the best. My current flavor is peanut butter. If you have to take a pill, be sure to make your own pill pockets. You could wrap them in ham, hide one in a burrito, maybe even on a slice of pizza. Surround that nastiness with some good flavors and you will be a happier person. Do you think that I could still get the pill pockets without the pills in it? I would like that. And don't worry, you can still have your pizza even if you aren't taking any pills!

WHAT ABOUT ME?

IT TOOK MY MOM ABOUT 20 MINUTES TO GET THIS PICTURE
Chuck having some medical issues is a very big deal, but I think that the attention has been on him for too long and I feel ignored and left out. I don't want to have to get  medical issues in order to get some attention so I was hoping if I stole his blog, you all could send me some much-needed love and attention. I can't do his blog often because I hate having my picture taken and I can't sit still for long periods of time. I made an effort this time because I am making a statement about the conditions that I am living with under "Chuck's shadow". Anyway, I hope he gets better so that the drama can be minimized and I can get back to my usual level of attention. 
Thank you for listening....

NO MORE CAR RIDES

SEE, I AM NOT BITING HIM.....I LIKE HIM!
Ok, I am done riding in the car. I have done all I can to make my Mom stop bringing me to her work. I howl the entire drive and I howl some more once I am at her place of employment. Did I mention that her place of employment involves Doctors and scary stuff? I was just here a few weeks ago and here I am again. Isn't this like jury duty where I already did my civic duty? Today I saw Dr. Riecks again. I really do like him. He is very gentle with me and knows my biting tendencies and plans accordingly. I also had to have a CT scan which stands for Chihuahua Testing. It would have been scary if I would have been awake, but I slept through the whole thing. I didn't get breakfast before I came so my Mom is trying to starve me into submission. What does she think? If I am super hungry I won't bite anyone? That makes no sense at all. I will keep you posted on my health status as I know some of you worry about me. I am a little bit of a medical disaster at times so I completely understand your concern. 

CHUCK
Dr. Riecks fan except for anything that makes me want to bite him!

I HAD TO WEAR MY PARKA BECAUSE IT WAS VERY COLD OUTSIDE
CHIHUAHUA ABUSE FOR SURE!!!

Year of the RAT?

MY YEAR, MY BLANKET, MY HAM!!!! 
I was told that this is the year of the RAT. I don't get it. Why would a rat get recognition for a whole year? I know there is also a year of the DOG, but that is way too general in my ever-humble opinion. I am thinking that next year will be the year of the CHIHUAHUA. Think about celebrating ME for a whole year. The focus will be on cuteness, lovability, and more cuteness.  The negative parts would be the unnecessary incessant barking, the peeing issues when it is cold outside, the need for food more often than is recommended, and the occasional accidental biting disorder that many of us share.  I think if we promote this like the news promotes stories, we will be fine. We will just leave out the negative stuff and focus on the positive things. No need to call attention to stuff that we will deny anyway!

DIFFICULT PATIENT

ME WITH THE NICE DR. CAMPBELL - NO MUZZLE


ME AFTER MY DRUG INTERACTION
My Mom took me to work with her last week so that Dr. Riecks could check me out. I have been limping and my front leg really hurts. He is a nice guy and I like him and stuff, but he is a Doctor and I am a naughty patient. The nurses trimmed my toenails and I tried to bite them, but they put that stupid muzzle on me. Then they sedated me and did something….who knows what? Anyway, I was still in a drugged stupor and my Mom made me go to the doggie Dermatologist next door. I have a little licking issue on my front legs and everyone thinks I might have an allergy or something. I got to see Dr. Jackie Campbell. She did not touch my toenails or manipulate my legs. She was super nice and I really liked her, then she gave me a shot. Well, she didn’t do it so I still like her, but one of her nurses did. On went the muzzle again! Really? My little bites are not a huge threat so I would think that people could just let me do it and get it out of my system. I hope they didn’t put a bad mark in my chart since I couldn’t actually do anything bad.

CHUCK
Not a patient patient

NEW YEAR- for you - not me!

THIS IS A PERFECT PICTURE OF MY LIFE
This New Year's thing is a great opportunity to make plans for all of you people who want to make changes in your life and to improve certain areas of your life. That is great for you. I personally don't want to make any changes in my life. I have no goals this year to make any changes. I like my social schedule, my food plan, and my sleeping schedule. Go ahead with your plans and goals and I will cheer you on. It will be very relaxing for me not to have any pressure to achieve any goals so I will have plenty of energy to be your New Years Chihuahua cheerleader.
