Hola, my Chihuahua amigos!

Chanel, la Chica, has mucho to say

Yes, as I am sure you will agree, I think it is high time that I am back! My Mom has been muy busy with her design business, pero I think I must now put my delicate paw down and demand some attention, for the sake of my devoted fans, that is. I’d be too demure and humble to insist just for myself 😉

Where to begin?! It has been a long time, so rather than overwhelm you with my cuentos of woe, let me just say I am now living with three (Dios mio, yes 3!!) cato brothers: El viejo Tigger, my returned instrument of torture, Fernando, and the new fiend extraordinaire, Francisco. As you can imagine, nobody asked the Chica. And I am somewhat convinced that my Mom has finally lost her last marble. But what can a little Chica like me do? … Familia therapy, mijitos!

Francisco (the jury is still out on this one, but I am thinking he was dropped on his head as a kitty)

So as part of my, er I mean, our therapy, I am making Madre keep up with this blog again. It is the least she can do to make up for the insulto (… tres gatos …estara loca esta mujer … que @!&^#$*!)  Wait, no, back to my happy place, back to my happy place – AyyyyyyOmmmmm!

Bueno, that is all for now. More to come later after my pedicure (another atonement effort)! Hola and adios, amigos!

This Chihuahua is getting in line for a canine massage

Chanel the chuhuahua is full of chihuahua wisdomI have found love: Spartacus Brownie Von Lickety Jones Jr.

OK, so I have been in love before. I am admittedly a little A.D.D. And to complicate matters I am a diva princess and just entitled to mood swings. It is in the fine print. But seriously, Señor Spartacus has captured my heart with his poetic letter to his Mama. From the very start, I knew we were kindred spirits. Read for yourselves:

“Dear Mom,

You think it’s easy dozing most of the day, begging for biscuits, nipping at your heels, and barking at squirrels?

Okay, it is …”

The simple joy in his expressions. The careless tone of his truths. The fluidly woven tale, leading his Mama and the reader right to the point: GET IT, WANT IT NOW!!  Need I say more? Well, whether or not I need to, I will. Simply to point out to all my chicos and one specific Mama that we must look into this recommendation of his on the dailycandy.com:

Buddha Dog’s Canine Masseuse Shows Us the Proper Technique

Ahh … the kneading … the skin rolling … stretching my little legs … in between my toes … just so, behind and to the tips of my bat ears … ahhhhhhhhhhhh ….

OMG, la Chica is melting at the thought. Mama, get busy learning these techniques. If I can’t get to Cali anytime soon, I WANT THIS ANYWAY. Apparently these are also good for the human doing the dog massaging. Not that it would be a requirement, but I am into bonuses 😉 and I’m always looking out for your well-being.

And as for you, my Romeo-Sparticus, ‘Til we meet someday …”

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

August 23, 2011 § 3 Comments


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:

Who needs the Easter bunny when you can have an Easter Chihuahua!

April 21, 2011 § 6 Comments


While Mom, Dad and I were out for a walk today, we saw all the Easter decorations springing up around the neighborhood. Cute I must say, but it got me thinking … hmmm … really … so who needs that flighty Easter bunny when you can have a cute, nay, an adorable Easter Chihuahua!

For one, I would not hide your treats. Rather I’d help you find them 😉 Heh, heh,  I’m veeeeeery good at finding the treats.

I like the carrots and the eggs just as much, though I prefer my eggs scrambled with cheese rather than hardboiled and painted. But I’m not picky, mostly just hungry.

And, yes, I know the Easter bunny is supposed to be all cute and cuddly. But have you tried to try to catch him?!?! Lickety fast little sucker! I, on the other hand will just roll over and happily let you rub my yummy tummy all day long!

I’m just saying 😉 Happy Easter, Chicos!

Chanel the Easter Chihuahua

I like to bounce and run around the yard in the springtime too. And I look great in pastels, don't you think?

Have an especially Hoppy and Happy Saturday Pet Blog Hop!

Photo gallery of Mama’s international puppies

April 17, 2011 § 4 Comments


So as you may have noticed, Mama likes to travel. This Chihuahua does not like it much, particularly when I don’t get to go with her. But I do get a little satisfaction when she comes back and I see her trip pictures – she misses me so much that half of her pictures are of puppies. Heh, heh 🙂 The truth is I’ve just gotten under her skin and there is simply no cure.

I thought I’d share some of her puppies around the world pictures. Though these cuties may have caught her attention, I am not feeling insecure. I can read between the lines and feel her misplaced love. Enjoy!!

Oh, and P.S. If your humans do this too (and I suspect it is a common people affliction when they leave us behind) please do share!! We’d love to keep this photo gallery going.

Where Am I?
