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.

ONE HOT CHIHUAHUA

As the rain comes and goes, there are some days that are just plain HOT. Even for me with my near nakedness and low body fat level. I can still be found under my lighter summer blanket, but every now and then, I get to hang out in front of the BIG fan! It is like a jet taking off when you turn that thing on. How I am able to stay on all fours, I don’t know, but it sure feels good. All of the big dogs fight over the front row seating in front of the big fan, but when I get my spot none of them will dare to mess with me. OK, my Mom actually puts them in another room so that I can get some ME wind tunnel time, but if they were out, I would be fierce. That being said, I think I should have my own big fan so that my aggressive behavior would not even be necessary. I can’t put it near my blanket since it might blow it off me, but maybe it could be on a timer and I could come out every few hours to enjoy the gusty wind. Do you have your own big fan? If you have an extra you could loan it to me for the hot summer months, then I will give it back to you when it is snowing. I won’t need it then. Think about it and get back to me.

DANCE DAY!

HEY CAYENNE, GET OUT OF MY PICTURE!
Another holiday is upon us and I am so pleased that everyone is celebrating my special day. I know that everyone has a special reason for celebrating on the 4th of July, but I had no idea that it was all about ME. I was listening to some upcoming events for the special day and I heard them say IN THE PEN DANCE day. How did they know about my little dance that I do when it is food time? I jump, I wiggle, I wag, I frolic and my Mom calls it my Pen Dance as I am in my “protect Chuck from himself” pen. To think that you all have joined together to celebrate my elation over the food experience is so humbling. Now it all makes sense to me: the barbeques, the parties, the fireworks and the beer, all of this to pay tribute to a little Chihuahua who really loves food. I should get a little sign that says WILL DANCE FOR FOOD! I haven’t quite figured out the whole red, white and blue thing, but those are all colors that look really good on me. I hope you enjoy your holiday while thinking of me. I wish I could say that I will be thinking of you, but to be honest, I will be too busy waiting for the food on the barbeque to make its way to my mouth. That will probably be when the fireworks start!
CAYENNE'S PEN DANCE IS A LITTLE
BIT FASTER THAN MINE.
I'M CUTE RIGHT?



LOOK AT HER GO!

SUPER DOCTOR

WE COULD BE REALLY GOOD FRIENDS IF HE WOULD GIVE ME HAM!
Ok, so I guess I am not the only one who is exceptional! There is a new Doctor at my Mom’s work. He is a specialist with Internal Medicine. (You remember, I have had to visit them a few times. Nothing that was my fault of course!) Well nothing was wrong with me, but I went to work with my Mom to meet the new guy! His name is Kirk Sears. He does all kinds of cool things that I can’t spell and I think they have to do with sticking tubes in places that I would rather not discuss. The Internal Medicine Doctors are amazing and it is nice that they now have another Doctor who will be available when, I mean if I need him! I am not planning on eating rocks or plastic or wicker or any of that other stuff that got me in trouble before, but sometimes those things just happen. I clearly remember the rock launching itself into my mouth when I wasn’t even aware of it happening. Maybe I was yawning or something. Anyway, welcome Dr. Sears. I hope that we don’t become really good friends if you know what I mean!

LIFE LESSONS

CAN YOU SEE ME?
This could make for a great suspense movie. It was ME trapped in the closet again! Most of you know that my Mom feeds me in the little pantry-closet because she is worried that I will try to eat the other dog’s food. I am not sure why she distrusts me like this, but I eat wherever my food takes me. The other night my Mom put me in there and then forgot me. I could hear my Mom and Dad talking and the other dogs free and happy roaming through the house while I was trapped. What made it even worse was the fact that there are bins of dog food in there which I couldn’t open and my favorite dog biscuits were on a shelf that only a Great Dane could reach. This was slow Chihuahua torture and I was a little bit surprised that I, being as cute as I am could be forgotten. My parents must have been given a drug of some kind or were tied up somewhere and unable to come get me. There is no way that I could be forgotten. I finally scratched at the door and was set free. My Mom was extra nice to me after this happened. I am thinking that I could hang out in the closet for awhile if it means additional attention. This is one of those lessons in life. There is usually an upside to negative situations. I will try to remember this nugget of wisdom the next time that I don’t get something that I want. I am pretty sure I will forget….

CHUCK'S SUMMER LINE UP...

I love summer. In case you haven’t noticed, I don’t have a lot of fur to keep me warm so I prefer the warmer months. I am going to be very creative and witty and give you a list of the things I plan on doing this summer using the word summer. Nifty huh?

S is for Sun! I am going to sit it the sun and watch my little underbelly get all tan and dark so I look like the Mexican that I am supposed to be.

U is for Unlimited Barbeques. I plan on having an outdoor cook out whenever I can. I am going to eat little steaks and burgers and maybe a little shish-ka-bob with all kinds of fun items organized together on a little stick.

M is for Margaritas! YUM! I plan on putting a small umbrella in my drinks so that I look like I am at a Chihuahua resort on a beach or small island. Hopefully, no one will ask me for my ID. I think I might be under the legal drinking age.

COULD YOU PLEASE FILL UP MY PITCHER AND
TAKE ME OUTSIDE? OH...  AND DO YOU HAVE A LITTLE STRAW?
M is for Many bags of potato chips. You can’t have summer without them. Plus they will go really good with my margaritas.

E is for Extremely Handsome. OK it isn’t really a summer plan, but since I am really handsome I thought I would include it.

R is for Racing which I will be doing in the back yard while dodging all of the weeds that are bound to pop up and try to eat me. Yikes. I don’t think I like the R very well. I am going to stick to all of the above things and skip the last letter.

I hope your SUMME plans are as fun filled as mine. Just remember, your plans should probably include food. It is just a suggestion. It’s not that you can’t have any fun without food, but considering who is writing this, it makes sense that it would be the most important thing!
