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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
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!

Though it may not always seem that way from some of my tales, I really do love my big brother, Tigger, aka El Cato. And apparently he loves me too. Heh, heh, heh, and now, he can no longer deny it. Mama stayed home with a bit of a cold and caught him giving me kisses. Here are some snapshots (evidence) of the tender moments to prove it.
You see, usually when the humans are away at work, we like to let down our guard and enjoy lounging carelessly in the warm sunny spot next to the sliding glass doors. Gone are the age-old sibling rivalries. Forgotten are the infamous animosities of “cats and dogs.” And that eternal struggle for the Alpha position of our pack? Well at least during nap time that’s on pause too.
Oh, Kitty Cato, you who like to give the impression of being aloof, inscrutable, fickle and wildly unpredictable. I know you have a reputation to maintain, but well chico, the jig is UP! Now the world will know that deep down inside you are a sweet lover boy. But no matter, that does not lessen my admiration of you, big brother. Deep inside, La Chica loves you too.
Have you hugged your cato today ;o-) ? Spread the love. It just feels good.

Psst, Psst, amigos! OMG, you gotta get your Mom some of these for Christmas!!
OK, so you know those extra soft plushy toys and blankets that almost feel like a chenille throw? Or those college blankets that are extra thick and fluffy and warm? Now, picture this … Christmas-themed pajama pants for your favorite human in that heavenly fabric! Then think of this … ahhhh, pause to hear the angels sing … curling up on that lap!!!!!
It’s like Mama IS the blankey – all warm and toasty and soft. I didn’t think I could love her more, but I DO! And I neeeever want to get up from here. Seriously, she has to push me off her hap these days. Well, has to keep trying, several times 🙂
I don’t know where she got them, but I think it was on the internets. My dear amigos, just be sure to put them on your Christmas list and make sure Santa knows what good chicos and chicas you’ve been all year.
Mucho love and keeeeesses,
