Quick! I need some ayuda, chicos!! I have to come up with some seriously effective diversion tactics during Sunday’s Superbowl, and PRONTO! Mama is not really following either of the teams playing, but she is planning to watch the game “for the commercials” while keeping her iPad handy with a good book in case the game gets boring.
But I just saw the Volkswagen followup commercial to the one of the cute “Vader kid with the force” and I might just have an Empire-sized problem here. This slightly chubby Chica is in mucho trouble if my humans see the “dog fitness” program in that ad!
I AM on a new fitness program, all naps aside. And I don’t mind the fetching and the running notion. That can be fun. But the giant ball yoga, the swimming and God forbid, not being able to snack on the little somethings that drop on the kitchen floor?!?! Are you crrrraaazzie?
Hurry, amigos! Send help. I only have 4 days to come up with an arsenal of ingenious distractions to make sure Mama won’t see this and get any ideas 😮

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.

Sheeesh, Mama has been waaaaaay too busy this week. Means more lap time for me when she is working so hard, but it also means divided attention. Not much time for her to help me with my great Chihuahua novel efforts here on the blog. I can’t afford to ruin my nails with all the typings, and it is not as much fun to do without Mama, so I’ll wait.

Heh, heh! I just loved this YouTube video of a chulo Chihuahua named Amadeus “playing” an awesome game of pool. I’m not sure how humans would play pool (kinda hard to observe from my vantage point) but this handsome boy sure has some moves! I myself haven’t tried this game yet, but I really like the dancey-dancey style. And you all know I can do a mean cha-cha, so I think I could be one of those pool sharkies. Maybe I can get Mom to take me to the nearest pub to give it a whirl. And needless to say if some nachos happen to fall my way, well of course, that would just be lovely. Enjoy, Amigos!
