Mama says the Chihuahua is a little “pushy”? I don’t beg, but I do differ!!

February 21, 2012 § 5 Comments


Chanel the ChihuahuaWisdom Diva "talks"Moi? Oh, no-no-no, Chica! “Assertive” or maybe “naturally confident” would be a fairer description. If you check my contract (ahem, again), you’ll see my “entitlements” clearly listed – Princess in residence will have her way. But let’s be reasonable. Think of it. This little noggin can only hold sooooo much greatness. I must express my amazing mind. It is never good to staunch the gift of a creative genius or hold one’s feelings inside. (Isn’t that the point of this blog?)

So, Mama, don’t judge. Simply accept the little gift that is ME. To make it easier for you to understand my “terms,” let us review un poco:

  • one short loud bark = “Hello?!?!?! Pay attention, please.”
  • whine, whine = “Walk time, NOW!”
  • whine, bark = “Treat? Or to be more precise: TREAT!!”
  • yip, yip, stamping of feet = “Sit down, woman. It is lap time.”
  • snort, snort, hrmph = “OK, OK. The Cato can sit on your lap too.”
  • whine, whine, grrrrrrrrrrrr… = “Time for bed already, chica. Let’s go!”
  • whine, whine, push push = “I’m going under the blanket NOW so move over.”

You see? I DO make myself quite clear, Mama. You listen, life is peachy. I am not pushy, I am a Chihuahua — short, sweet and to the point!

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 …”

Feliz New Year, Amigos!!

December 31, 2011 § 1 Comment


Happy New Year, my dear amigos. It has been a great year of change at Casa Chanel: Kids are both off to college; Empty nest adjustments with cleaning out, furniture rearrangements and simplifying things for us all; Mama and her partner, Aunt Tracey, started a new company that is sure to skyrocket in the coming year and impact lots of kids; Dad got new glasses with progressive-lenses so we are all staying out from underfoot (his foot!) at least; and we got some gizmo called a “blueray” (does that go well with tortillas?) that gets “wifi” (that sounds like it tickles) so the peeps are enjoying more movies at home and quality time together (with extra lap time for la Chica. Viva el blueray!)

Here’s hoping 2012 is a year full of hope, love and happiness for all of you. And to get us started on the right paw, I will make some resolutions/predictions:

  1. More walks and exercise better be in my future (ahem … oh, Mama!!!!!!) The Chica’s waistline will not improve on good intentions and baby carrots alone.
  2. More “public appearances” for the Chica. My fans here in the neighborhood are under control (scary grrrrrrrs, I’m watching you!) and I’m ready for fame and fortune. Maybe we’ll make it to Bark World this year! WooHoo!!
  3. More giving back. No, I don’t mean the obvious! I mean getting involved and helping those in need. I’ll be looking for some causes. Suggestions are welcome, amigos.
  4. More blog posts from la Chica (ahem … oh, Mama!!!!!!) We all understood the “dark period” while Mama was muy busy working on her book and educational products, but the world also needs a steady dose of Chihuahua Wisdom to continue to evolve.

And now for a nice siesta, err, I mean, some deep reflection 😉

Mucho love and keeeeesses to my familia and amigos. And Cin-Cin!!

Special keeeesses from the Chihuahua Chica to all the Mamas

May 7, 2011 § Leave a comment


It will be hard to compete for Mama’s love with our girl who is coming home from college today. Just in time for Mother’s day 🙂 But really, I am just as happy that I’ll have both of my girls now for the whole summer. My tail is going to wag right off from my butt.

So to all the Mamas on this special weekend, I send you all my love!

Chanel the Chihuahua slurps a Happy Mama's Day

And Happy Saturday Pet Blog Hop!!

This Chihuahua likes her novelas spicy

April 30, 2011 § 3 Comments


My mama is muy Cuban, but she is not a big spanish soap opera fan. I’m not sure if she was traumatized in her youth having to watch all of her abuela’s favorite novelas. Or if it is because life in this family is enough of a soap opera at times, so there is no room for more exaggerated drama in her life.

However, even she will admit that we have fallen in love with that El Monterey novela-style commercial
series, “La Hacienda.” FABULOSO! Move over, Telemundo. We can’t WAIT for the next episode.

My favorite dramatic moments so far are:

“Hija, you were sweeeetched at birrrrth … [long pause] … but eeeet was only for a second, and then they sweeeetch you right back. Let’s eat!”

“Fah-therrrrrrr, you cannot keeeep us apart! … No, no, son, eeeez OK. She eeeez hot! Now, let’s eat!”

Heh, heh, heh, they put in all of the best ingredients for a fabulous chica fiesta – the fiery tempers and tempestuous relationships … those soulful, significant looks (these make for awesome close-ups) … there are new relatives showing up at every turn … ahh, there’s lively, dance-y music … and in the end, mucho good food! “Let’s eat,” indeed!

***

So today, Mama and I looked them up on Youtube to we could share it with the familia, and it turns out that they have a WHOLE channel – http://www.youtube.com/user/Elmonterey – Yippee!!!!! – there is even a bloopers reel. Well, I just had to share it with you too, my chicos. So grab the chips and salsa, sit back and enjoy! Ole!!

And as usual, on this beautiful spring Saturday, have a happy 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?
