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

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 …”


Photo gallery of Mama’s international puppies

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.

Chihuahua family news installment: the BIG puppy caravan

February 19, 2011 § 6 Comments

Chanel the chihuahua watches TV

This story has been brought to you by Chanel, the intrepid Chica reporter (Now picture me reporting this story on the Today Show. What?!?! It could happen.)

So my two “cousins” – Oslo, the Great Dane and Asia the Siberian Husky – just got transferred from Virginia to Washington. But  NOT Wash., D.C. as you might think, I mean to Washington state!!!!  Their humans were in a huge pickle. How to transport two HUGE elderly dogs across country? Never mind the two toddlers with all their paraphernalia, the two cars and huge household to go along with that.

To add to this chili con carne, the big move had to take place in February, in the middle of the coldest, snowiest winter in decades!!

All the human parental minds in the family got together to figure this pretzel out (hey, anyone else starting to get hungry here?) Should they caravan over (well, more like down and across the south, then up the entire west coast) while trying to avoid the worst of the snow? Eeeek, by most calculations a two-week journey and no picnic. That’s like pioneer days, chicos.

Should they risk mild sedation and fly the pups over. Unfortunately, the mere distance and plane transfers of this journey would mean waaaaaaay too long for sedation. NO WAY to take such a risk. This is not a laughing matter, but may I point out this would not be an issue for a perfectly practical and diminutive pup like me. I ride coach, baby. Have purse, will travel. But back to my story.

Trains? Planes? Automobiles? As they say in my family, a tremendous arroz con pollo of a mess!

Well, they found an ace in the donut hole (hey, I’m trying here!) – a service that assigns a driver to transport the pups across country. But strangers? Kennels? Long road trip? EVERYONE was worried. Still it seemed the safest route.

So the human family arrived first. They got the kids and their furnishings there and set up to wait for their beloved cargo to arrive. As soon as they got their internet service hooked up, they anxiously checked their email for any word.

Heh, heh, so this is the “update” they received:

Dear Mom and Dad,

Having a great time. Been enjoying the sights. Here are a few pictures. Send snacks!!
