What? Nooooooo, I wasn’t going to do whatever you THINK I was going to do. I’m pure and innocent as the driven snow. Of course as a Florida girl I have technically never seen snow, driven or otherwise, so I’m not sure just how innocent I need to be. But how much trouble could this little chica be? Besides, I am the spice of your life, Mom. So every once in a while, just look the other way ;•-p
Mucho keeesses to make it all better! You know you can’t stay mad at me.

Just a quick hello and update from sunny Florida. Mom’s laptop is being worked on so we are a little hampered here. These paws are NOT made for iTouch typing. It is a lovely instrument, but Ay, Caramba, it is just too hard to seriously compose with!
So the weather has been lovely in the neighborhood – sunny and in the 70s. As we fumble with the touch screen here, the birds are singing to welcome the sunrise. The flowers are in bloom. The trees are budding. And the pollen … is, well … alive, and … Achoo!!!!
Excuse me! Sniffle, sniffle … happy allergies season, chicos! Don’t forget to hop on the Saturday Pet Blog Hop wagon and enjoy some awesome musings from fellow pet lovers. Ciao, chicos!

Why does Mama say “I’ve created a monster” when she looks at me sometimes? Moi? Her sweet, beautiful princess? Her angel?
My finely tuned squeaks – crafted to rival any soprano diva if you ask me – are merely used to remind her that Cheerios are a recommended part of my daily fiber allowance. You see, sometimes in the middle of our ritual Cheerio “fetching” she pauses to eat her breakfast and stuff. I’m just helping her stay focused.
The yips in the kitchen are to remind her when she is making yummy, scrambled eggs, that they are good for my lustrous fur coat. Same goes for fluffy warm rice. More fiber 😉 A little dollop for la chica goes a long way!
Then there are the gentle growlings I must sometimes use when she is trying to dislodge me from her lap. We all know how important my beauty sleep is. Every nap counts, amigos. Surely she is not thinking straight.
I gotta say, I’ve heard her call me things in her human tongue (with a cuban accent) that I don’t recognize. But I don’t think I’m going to try to decipher those. They don’t sound muy nice.
Hey, I AM trying to communicate! Heh, heh, does THAT make me a monster 😉 ?

So my two “cousins” – Oslo, the Great Dane and Asia the Siberian Husky – just got transferred from Virginia to Washington. But NOT Wash., D.C. as you might think, I mean to Washington state!!!! Their humans were in a huge pickle. How to transport two HUGE elderly dogs across country? Never mind the two toddlers with all their paraphernalia, the two cars and huge household to go along with that.
To add to this chili con carne, the big move had to take place in February, in the middle of the coldest, snowiest winter in decades!!
All the human parental minds in the family got together to figure this pretzel out (hey, anyone else starting to get hungry here?) Should they caravan over (well, more like down and across the south, then up the entire west coast) while trying to avoid the worst of the snow? Eeeek, by most calculations a two-week journey and no picnic. That’s like pioneer days, chicos.
Should they risk mild sedation and fly the pups over. Unfortunately, the mere distance and plane transfers of this journey would mean waaaaaaay too long for sedation. NO WAY to take such a risk. This is not a laughing matter, but may I point out this would not be an issue for a perfectly practical and diminutive pup like me. I ride coach, baby. Have purse, will travel. But back to my story.
Trains? Planes? Automobiles? As they say in my family, a tremendous arroz con pollo of a mess!
Well, they found an ace in the donut hole (hey, I’m trying here!) – a service that assigns a driver to transport the pups across country. But strangers? Kennels? Long road trip? EVERYONE was worried. Still it seemed the safest route.
So the human family arrived first. They got the kids and their furnishings there and set up to wait for their beloved cargo to arrive. As soon as they got their internet service hooked up, they anxiously checked their email for any word.
Heh, heh, so this is the “update” they received:
Dear Mom and Dad,
Having a great time. Been enjoying the sights. Here are a few pictures. Send snacks!!
Asia and Oslo
Piece of cake! Happy trails, Chicos!! Now someone pass the menu. I’m starved ;•-)

Mami (that’s her on the left) always said, “my leeetle chica, remember to stop and smell the flowers.” Great advice for everyone. Then again in my case, I have to stop anyway to climb over or run around most of the flowers that happen upon my path. I have low clearance issues. But we won’t go there.
Now, my human mom like most of the chicas in our family, is an admitted shutterbug — you may have noticed she loves taking my picture. It can get on one’s nerves at times, but love does overcome. Anyhow, back to my point, what my human mom and I love even more is taking a good look around when we are out and about and spotting the amazing little things that happen every day — the details that often go unnoticed but are what make our world such a beautiful place.
So we thought we’d bring the camera along on our walks now that the weather is getting a little nicer so we can capture some of these small miracles. This could be mucho fun. From my particular “point of view” that usually means I get an up close and personal glance at some curious things. And if I should end up in a picture or two, well, all modesty aside, the chica will be more than happy to do my part and lend my beauty (heh, heh) to nature’s great masterpiece.
So here’s our first one. We’ve titled it:
Just for you, Mami!

To thee I dedicate my Puppy love post because love IS forever!
To thee, my family and friends, I am one lucky chica to have your love and support (and patient understanding ;•-)
I dedicate my Chihuahua a la mode sweet nothings and mucho keeeeeeesses.
And to my Mom and Dad (the humans) who celebrate 25 years together, I dedicate my Tails of Love post, because they DID find true love.
They love everyday that they are blessed to be together,
And they have plenty left over to share with this little chica!
And to ye, my sweet blog friends – though that doest mostly mean the folks already mentioned – I say, I love thee, and may cupid find your heart … and … and …(choke)
