ROUND PEG – SQUARE HOLE?

The size of one’s brain is not determined by the size of one’s head. Example: my head is small, but my brain is huge. My big dog friends have way bigger heads than I do, but clearly their brain size is questionable. Examples: they do not sleep under a blanket. That is a no-brainer. They also get all worked up about food time before my Mom is even close to handing out the grub. I wait until it is a sure thing before I start the happy dance. None of them have even thought about writing their own blogs. This would be too much work and their paws are too big to delicately tap on the keyboard. They also are not selective in their barking choices. They bark at anything. I choose to bark at certain things that have meaning: a stranger in the house, the trash going out the door and the package deliveries. You know the big stuff. Another fine example is my friend Clayton who sticks his big ol’ dog head in the little dog door. He does not fit in the dog door, but he constantly wills his head and body to be small enough to get in the door. Not gonna happen big guy. Anyway, I hope all of my illustrations of smartness have led you to the same conclusion that I have reached. Little dogs have bigger brains than big dogs. This is probably written in an encyclopedia somewhere, but I am too small to pick up a big book. My brain however is big enough to understand what is in the big book. So there!

CHUCK EXPOSED!

Have you ever left your house and realized you had forgotten to put your clothes on? Have you ever been under-dressed for a fancy event? This is how I am feeling. It has been a little warm lately and I have had to come out from under my blanket and I feel completely exposed. I’ve even tried the half on half off blanket trick and I still feel completely naked. It is not intentional nakedness. I am just one hot Chihuahua. Is that a good thing? Anyway, as this summer heats up, you are going to be feeling exposed. If you like this feeling, there might be something wrong with you. Just sayin….. I am much more comfortable hiding under my blanket and you may probably feel better wearing a big parka or something, but it is too hot for that. Stay cool this summer and being a little bit naked is ok right?

RAINDROPS KEEP FALLING ON MY FOOD?

MY FOLLOWING STATEMENTS DO NOT REPRESENT THE VIEWS
AND OPINIONS OF ANYONE BUT ME. 
So we recently discovered that Lacey will not eat if it is raining. At first we thought it might be the thunder, but no. Just a few sprinkles on the skylight will keep her from enjoying her meal. She starts shaking and freaking out at the slightest chance of rain. You are thinking…. Poor Lacey, the little darling can’t eat. I am thinking….What kind of an idiot turns down food! There could be a thunderstorm, a vacuum cleaner, a distraction of any kind and I would still eat. There could be a tornado or an explosion of epic proportion and you couldn’t drag me away from my food. Some have tried and failed. You do not come between this Chihuahua and his food…..EVER! So what do you say to poor Lacey who misses her dinner every time a rain cloud passes overhead? I say “Move out of my way and I can take care of her food!” The truth is when it comes to food, I don’t have a pity bone in my body. I can’t even drum up a tiny scrap of it for her. Speaking of scraps, I eat leftovers and used food of any kind. Just so you know!

LOTS IN COMMON...?

As the 4th of July nears, I would like to take this opportunity to give you my comparison study of myself and fireworks. With much wisdom, I have put this little list together to show you all the ways that I am like a firework.
         
I am an excellent source of fun and entertainment, but can be dangerous if not handled properly!

My face inspires wonder and awe and lots of OOOOH’s and AHHHHH’s wherever I go!

I am fast and can go off without any notice, often scaring those around me!

I can get all of the dogs in the neighborhood to start barking incessantly!

Like fireworks, I often inspire food gatherings whenever I am present.

Loud noises come out of me often and that is all I am saying about that….


Please remember me this 4th of July when you are grocery shopping for the little fireworks party that you are inviting me to, I do like ham and anything else that goes with it!
HERE I AM WITH MY LITTLE CHUCK SIZE PAPER PLATES
WAITING FOR THEM TO BE FULL OF FOOD....
AFTER THE FIREWORKS SHOW OF COURSE!

NOW WAIT JUST A MINUTE.....

THIS IS JUST WRONG!!!
Dogs are not the best at keeping track of time, so I don’t know exactly when it was, but I told you about the girls pushing me onto the floor while I am sleeping. Since that blog, things have gotten even worse if you can imagine that. I am now being pushed out of my blanket and left sitting on the floor. I look up and my spot has been taken. This is extreme abuse and I don’t think that I should have to put up with it. Those girls don’t write a blog. They don’t have fans like I do. They don’t even like having their pictures taken. I am the photogenic, famous, charming, intelligent, and handsome Chihuahua who deserves the spoils in life. I can’t be treated like an outcast or a dog with no value. I am valuable don’t you think? I guess I am going to have to get a little mean and nasty with the sneaky girls. I think a little snarling and showing of teeth goes a long way and I don’t want anyone to think that I am a push over or a doggie doormat. The message here is “Don’t mess with Chuck!”  Please pass it around to your friends so that my fierce reputation is known world wide! Thank you for your support and let’s see if that blanket can stay on the bed with me underneath it eh?

Mean, Mean Chuckie!
THIS IS THE AERIAL VIEW OF MY MISTREATMENT!

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!

I am going to take this opportunity to talk about my Dad. He isn’t a dog you know, but my human dog Dad. I really don’t remember my dog dad so I can only discuss things that I know about. I am pretty sure that my Dad wasn’t a little dog fan before I came into his life. I eavesdrop on my parents sometimes and over the years I have heard things that my Dad has said like “Who would have thought I would love the Chihuahuas so much.” or “Chuck is the best dog in the whole world!” OK so I didn’t really overhear the second one, but I bet he thinks that. My Dad is pretty cool and he will come and cover me up when I am exposed. You know when my blanket slips off of me and stuff like that. He feeds me and gives me head scratches and enjoys my company during the World Cup. I know he is a busy guy, but he always talks to me in a kind loving voice. Well most of the time, but his voice isn’t quite as kind when I escape and run out the back door and won’t come back when he calls, but that doesn’t happen often. Besides he is only doing that for show so that the other dogs don’t know that I am his favorite. I am pretty sure that is the only reason he would ever yell at me. Anyway, for Father’s Day, don’t escape and come when your Dad calls you and you should have a pleasant day that is free of any yelling! Whatever you do, don’t bite your Dad on this most special of days. That won’t go over well at all.

CHUCK

Daddy’s boy!
HERE I AM WITH MY DAD....I MIGHT BE IN TROUBLE AGAIN, I AM NOT SURE?

FRUIT FRENZY


Summer is special in so many ways. Some of you are just excited that it isn’t snowing! (I know, me too) Others are thrilled to get outside and enjoy the fresh air. Many dogs get to go on more hikes, go swimming or just enjoy fun outdoor dog stuff. I must say that all of theses things are appealing to me and they get me a little bit excited too, but the most important thing about summer to this Chihuahua is the over abundance of fruit. Yes, I said fruit. Many of you remember that when I was a baby, someone said I looked like a fruit bat! I know it is a horrible thing to say to a little dog who isn’t very confident and who maybe has a huge head, but anyway it was out there and I haven’t ever gotten over it. However this year, as summer approaches, I think I might be ok being a fruit bat. It means that I get unlimited fruit and I can fly! Those are good things right? So now that I have overcome my puppy hood issues, I am ready to dig into some watermelon! Just open that baby up and I will make my own little fruit salad!
