HOLIDAY APPRECIATION

I AM PRETTY SURE THERE IS A HOT DOG HIDING SOMEWHERE IN THIS GRASS!
We dogs don’t really know much about celebrating Memorial Day. I understand that it is an important holiday to people, but I am really interested in the barbeque aftermath. There will be spilled potato chips and beer cups left unattended. There will be little hot dogs that find their way to the ground which is within the reach of my little short legs and body. So please enjoy your important holiday, but remember that we dogs play a huge part in your celebration. This is the case for most holidays. Please don’t think that we don’t have a sense of things that are important, we are very sensitive about these things. We just have a different set of priorities and food is the number one thing on our calendar! Important things end up somewhere with baths and toenail trims if you know what I mean. Don’t forget your furry housemates this holiday and make a few intentional drops while enjoying your food!

YOU NEED SOME SUN!

WHERE ARE THE LAWN CHAIRS?

Lacey and I are ready for our little inflatable Chihuahua pool. I can feel it in the air: summer is drawing near and the beer will be flowing, the barbeque will be sizzling and the watermelon will be rolling off the countertop. I am so excited to soak up some sun and partake in all of the above mentioned stuff. Lacey looks like she could use a little sun. She is very white! I actually tan quickly and will be a bronzed sun dog in no time. Get out your summer stuff and don’t even think about coming to my house for a barbeque. There isn’t enough food for me to share with you. 

WHERE IS THE FOOD?

ARTEEST

I PROMISE NOT TO EAT THE ROLLER.....UNLESS IT HAS HAM IN THE MIDDLE...HMMMM

There has been some painting going on at my house and I don’t understand why I have been excluded from this activity. I have been kept in another room and have not even been allowed to supervise. I should be involved in all major undertakings at my house. This should include painting. Do you think my parents think that I would try to eat the paint? Well even if they are right, I should be given to opportunity to make that mistake. I want my own little painting overalls and a little pocket for my little brush and a little lunch pail for break time. I think that my painting skills would be impressive, yet unique. For instance, I could slather myself up with paint and rub vigorously on the wall. Or I could just rub myself on the wall and WAHLAH…Multicolored Chihuahua. It sounds fun and creative. I think I might be an artist of some kind or another. Or I could just be bored and need a distraction. Whatever, I still want the little lunch pail. (Pre-stocked please)
THIS IS WHAT THE WORLD LOOKS LIKE WITHOUT ME PAINTING IN IT!

DEPORTATION



DO YOU THINK I AM OVER-DRESSED? TOO MANY BEADS? HAT OR NO HAT?
My Mom frequently threatens to deport me to my homeland of Mexico. I think she might not understand that I was born in this country and therefore I am a real citizen. She can’t put me on the Chihuahua bus back to Mexico when I have never even been there before. However, on this Cinco De Mayo holiday, I am considering an imaginary trip to the land of my little dog ancestors. This means that I will stay under my blanket and think about my journey, but never actually leave my comfortable home. This is my preferred method of travel as I am a little bit on the lazy side. The celebration in Mexico will include lots of food and beverages (Mexican beer) and a bunch of us little dogs howling and playing. I think I will have a good time, but I will be anxious to return to my familiar surroundings. There will be no deportation for me so you can just tell my Mom she is stuck with me as I am a legal citizen of my pen under my blanket!

INDECISION

HERE I AM OUTSIDE WITH A LITTLE PARKA THAT DOESN'T COVER MY FEET!

What the ham is going on? Isn’t this time for flowers and green grass and me running naked and free through them all? Oh no, it is time for snow! (that rhymed, did you notice?) Anyway, my big dog friends are like…..shed, don’t shed, yeah shed, no, no shedding. Their fur doesn’t know if it is spring or winter and the trees feel the same way. I personally don’t worry about the shedding thing because I don’t have much to shed. My daytime temperature of “under the blanket” keeps me at an even 70 degrees.  Let’s just move on to barbeques on the patio and nice warm evenings of hanging out with a little brewsky and a large ham sandwich. Now I am depressed because the ice surrounding the patio means none of the above will happen anytime soon. Whoever is on weather detail needs to fix this. Call me when you have done your job. I will be under my blanket until everything thaws out.

TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALL GAME

THERE IS NO FOOD INSIDE OF THIS GLOVE.. I ALREADY CHECKED
No it isn’t just a song. I really mean it. I want you to take me to a ball game where I can meet the hot dog guy in person. I want to be able to run under people’s feet in the stands and catch all of the stuff they drop. I am totally a ham guy, but some potato chips, popcorn and peanuts would round out my diet nicely! The occasional sip of beer might be fun and I don’t have to drive so no problem. Just watching my Dad at home get all excited about a bunch of guys hitting a ball and running after it, makes me want to be a part of it all. Of course, it is very dog-like to chase a ball, but I don’t blame people for wanting to be more like dogs. I personally like to chase food. I believe the outcome is more beneficial to me than catching some dumb ball. Anyway, I am ready for my first ball game so let me know when you will be picking me up. I will bring the sunscreen and my hearty appetite!!!

DON'T PUT ALL OF YOUR DOGS IN ONE BASKET

HEY...THIS BASKET IS EMPTY- WHERE'S MY STUFF?
Easter is here again and I can already hear the thumping footsteps of my giant Easter Bunny friend. I look forward to his visit each year because it means treats for me. My Easter basket should contain the following things.… Ham, ham eggs, ham covered candy bunny, ham pancakes, ham hard boiled eggs with pastel colors and pretty much anything else with ham. I will be sitting in an Easter basket waiting for the treat bringing bunny and I hope there will be some ham left over for you. Actually, I would prefer you not get any of the ham, but it sounds selfish if I say that out loud. This Easter holiday should be shared with your dog friends. Get them a big basket to sit in and be sure to fill it with lots of things that they love. There might not be any ham left so think of something else you could get like turkey or roast beef. Don’t be stingy with the treats. It is a holiday after all.
