Chihuahua – Weather watcher (from my window)

August 25, 2011 § Leave a comment


Ay, caramba, amigos! I don’t want to jinx us, but I am really grateful that we escaped the wrath of Hurricane Irene here in Florida. Puerto Rico and some of the islands got pummeled!!

Check this out:

Eeeek! on montabe.com

Of course this picture is fake, but my Mama remembers how crazy floods were in Puerto Rico where she spent part of her childhood. So much so that finding a sharky swimming on a highway would NOT have surprised her. Eeeeeeeek!!

I must also say anything I was muy worried about our boy, so recently installed into his 5th-floor dorm room at FAU in Boca Raton. He was going to be seeing it all VEEEEERYclose and personal from his window!

Some Chihuahua hurricane survival tips:

  1. Don’t lose sight of your humans. Have your blanky, favorite toy and food bowls ready to go if you have to evacuate.
  2. Stay on the high ground (for me the back of the couch) but find a safe, warm dry spot somewhere in the safest room of the house – the room least exposed to windows.
  3. Make sure you have your collar with id on, in case you get separated from your humans.
  4. Don’t get too spooked and start barking, everyone will be nervous enough.

I’ll be keeping my paws crossed for the folks  and critters up the east coast! Stay safe!!!!!!

La Chihuahua is throwing a photo fiesta! (Psst, pssst … it is a contest!!)

Psst, pssst … I need your help, amigos. My Mama is not muy happy at all these days. I know, I know. How can that be when she’s got me, the sunshine of her world, the joy of her life, the spring in her step?!? But I must admit, even my tail is hanging low these days too with the kids now both gone off to college. And yes, I know I threatened to enroll and go to college too. But that was WAAAAAAY too demanding on my sleep schedule and too much work for this princess. Ay, Caramba! And besides, someone needed to stay home with Mama.

So I am cooking up a leeeetle plot … err, I mean project, to cheer us all up. You see, a little while back, some nice folks representing Cesar Canine Cuisine, reached out and sent us a care package to get my esteemed opinion on some of the products. And I must say, the Cesar Softies Medley treats get a big thumbs up from me!!! But that is another story I will soon get into.

Hurry up and take the picture, Mom! I'm licking my chops already :p

Anyhow, my chicos, the Cesar’s folks were kind enough to provide some extra treats for me to share with my amigos. So I’d like to kick up a little fun and organize a little photo contest!!! Send me your cool, funny, adorable, once-in-a-lifetime “what I did this summer” pictures to enter! Include a little description of yourself with your name, hometown and a few words about your “special moment on camera,” and that will do the trick. Of course, I’ll need an email address(don’t worry I won’t share it with anyone) so I can contact you if you win. You can email me the pictures at chihuahuawisdom@gmail.com or post them on my Facebook wall. You must agree (in writing) to my posting the pictures on Facebook and on my ChihuahuaWisdom.com blog to participate, but you retain the rights to your photos.

Sample: Un chico muy fresh in Central Park

A panel of experts – Mama, Tigger and Moi – will select the top 10 photos (I know it will be hard to pick!!) and put them up for votes from all our friends on my  Facebook page. You can invite your friends to vote too. Just have them send a request. I like to make new friends.

The top 3 vote-getters will receive prizes, courtesy of Cesar Canine Cuisine. No purchase required; you can enter as many times as you’d like; and all that. We are not picky, nor are we the experts at much of any of this. Unfortunately, however, I must restrict this to U.S. entries. I have no clue how to handle the international mail and restrictions. I’m just a leeeetle chica. But we do want to see lots of fun pictures to cheer us up! We need some party spirit at Casa Chanel!!

So get busy, and send us your entries by September 30. We’ll put the pictures up on October 1st for votes and we will allow 2 weeks for votes. So by Oct. 15th you too could be chowing on some yummy treats!

Tell your friends! The more the merrier!! Ciao, for now, Chicos, and let the cuteness fiesta BEGIN!

P.S. Happy Saturday Pet Blog Hopping!

Catching you up a bit on this summer

Where's Mama going?

This summer has been everything – fun, crazy loco, unexpected, busy, happy and big time bittersweet. A summer of graduation for us all:

  • our boy graduated from high school and spent much of the summer getting ready to go off to college.
  • our girl headed off to New York, flying solo this time and had a great time making new friends and making great strides towards her ultimate goal of becoming a professional ballerina
  • Mama and Dad graduated into the empty-nester phase of life. Jury is still out on how well they will adjust 😉
But all of this growing up did not come without some pains. In particular, I must say that this Chica was rather put out! Way too many trips without yours truly! And we all know how I feel about that!! At one time or another, my various peeps managed to sneak off to:
  • Kansas City (Summer performance)
  • New York (Summer intensive program)
  • Boca Raton (Orientation)
  • Jupiter (Family visit)
  • New York (Summer performance)
  • Jupiter (Family visit)
  • Miami Beach (Vacation)
  • Key Largo (Vacation)
  • Boca Raton (College move-in)
Mama was thinking about me, she assures me. And I am thinking about her!! Trust me:

College “Move In” Day is tomorrow?!?!?!?!?!?

August 15, 2011 § Leave a comment


What? My boy is off to college tomorrow? But I am not ready!!!

  • Not enough belly scratches.
  • Not enough behind-the-ears scratches.
  • Not enough haunches scratchings.
  • And definitely, oh most definitely, NOT ENOUGH KISSES!!

I will miss you, my chico. And I will be waiting patiently for your return. Love,

Your favorite girlfriend,

Chanelly
