La Chihuahua almost got in BIG trouble last night
May 14, 2011 § 2 Comments
On last night’s walk, well, let us just say I didn’t behave very well. It all started out great when I got to see my favorite peeps – Skitch and Gen. It was a treat to be out there for a walk at the same time. Our humans all have different schedules so that doesn’t happen very often. We said hello, sniffed each other all over, and did mucho tail wagging. The puppies, that is. It was good to catch up.
But then things started going downhill when I started getting antsy and pulling away at my leash while Mama tried to have a conversation. That woman can talk! And it all sounds like blah, blah, blah to me anyway. Geeez, what could they possibly have to go on and on about for sooooo long. It was prime walking time!
So I started to tug and whine … tug and whine … tug and whine. A winning combination :•-) or at least usually effective. Well, this WAS meant to be a walk, Madre!
Next, I actually managed to pull the leash out of her hands and broke away when I saw another Chihuahua. Mighty beast that I am, sometimes I forget my own strength! Well, I just had to go say hello. Mama however was not happy. She squealed and came running after me.
Then I unfortunately ran into some of the bigger dogs in the barrio. And as per usual I got a little defensive. OK, OK, so I started barking uncontrollably. Mama said it sounded both like I was trying to eat them alive AND like I was being stabbed. By this time, she was mumbling things that didn’t sound very nice and tugging at me!
But just as she was about to give up on me and this outing, I saved the day. We were rounding the corner to head back home, when I saw it! My chance to get back in Mama’s good graces. I spotted a pretty gift for her and tugged her (gently) right over to it.
She smiled. We brought it home.
I got lots of love. Even Tigger liked it. And as they say, they lived happily ever after 🙂
