To be sitting on mom's left side. HAS to be the left side and HAS to be touching mom. She also loves food.

Sadly, Pixie doesn't seem to know what toys are. She will play with mom's hand, but so far that's it.

Favorite Food:
Any and all food.

Favorite Walk:
Pixie enjoys greenway walks and hikes in the woods. She also enjoys riding in her backpack type carrier and letting mom do all the walking.

Arrival Story:
Someone saw Cheeky (Pixie's new sister) at an event and said there was a Chihuahua at the shelter that could be Cheeky's twin and who wasn't eating and stressed at the shelter. So went to check it out and just couldn't leave her there. She was called Shortie at the shelter, but have changed her name to Pixie.

It's been a sad day here at our house. This afternoon I went to the rainbow bridge. My health had continued to deteriorate and today mom and I went to have a long talk with the vet today. He said I've fought the valiant fight, but that none of the health issues I have were going to get any better. So mom made the most difficult decision to help me to the rainbow bridge. I am no longer in pain and can breath easily now, and in no time at all I plan to be able to use these wings and fly all over. Mom has cried and cried, and Cheeky has looked for me, but each day will get easier. So for now toodle-loo. But I'll be close by.

Fifth pack walk of the year for the local group, and first pack walk of the year for me. I got Mom all to myself on this walk. I'm not sure if we can still call it a pack walk since there was only me and one other dog there. Two dogs, two people. I will say though that I did very well with such a small pack. Hehe. It felt good to get out and go! I did my usual barking when I first got out of the car, but once I got a good sniff of Ziggy I was fine. I know her and she is okay. We walked at Springbrook and looped more than once. So I think we went about three miles. One day we are going to have to figure out for sure how long one loop is so we will know better our total walk.

When I got home Cheeky was all in my face. She was mad that she didn't get to go. Whatever. I really hate it when she gets in my face though. I wish she wouldn't do that.

My what a difference a year makes. Just over a year ago I was a stray picked up by animal control. Running wild, scrounging for food. That wasn't fun, but neither was the animal shelter. In fact I had almost quit eating, and I'd only been there a week.

So how did I join the family? Well, Mom (my new mom that is) had taken Pippi and Cheeky to a fund raiser for the local human society. They were walking around looking at things when someone from the shelter came over to say they had Cheeky's twin at the shelter ... me. They went on to tell her that I was not doing well in that environment and wasn't eating. This was on a Sunday.

Mom had been thinking some about getting another dog. She was thinking of another Min Pin though. Or at least a dog more Pippi's size. Not Cheeky's size. But Mom couldn't get me off her mind ... and she hadn't even seen me yet! Cheeky had been having a lot of trouble with colitis last year and at times would hardly eat. Mom couldn't help but think of how poorly Cheeky would do in a shelter environment and it just broke her heart to think about me. The shelter wasn't open Monday, but Tuesday morning she decided she had to come check on me. She must have known what would happen because she brought a harness and leash with her. And sure enough, I went home with her.

Luckily I was only in the shelter for a week. Mom took me to her vet for a check up. Turns out I wasn't eating because I had hookworms. Sooo glad we got that taken care of.

I just had my first gotcha day earlier this month and I couldn't be happier. I've got a nice home, with comfy beds. Mom even made a ramp so I could get on the big bed more easily. I can't jump like the other because my back legs are a little different. She also made me a seat in the car where I can see out the window. I sleep with Mom, sit with Mom, follow Mom around. I've got toys, although I still haven't quite figured those out. I'd rather cuddle. I've got a large wardrobe of sweaters, dresses, hoodies and more that I share with Cheeky. Mom even hand painted butterfly wings for my Howloween costume last fall. I was a Pixie Bug. Hehe. I've got sisters to play and cuddle with, and cats to chase. Thank goodness Mom doesn't fuss at me too much for that. They are just so tempting you know. I get to go on lots of walks with a local dog walking group. I'm still working on not barking at everyone so much. And Mom says I need to work on thinking I need to have the last word in everything, but I'm sure she is wrong about that. Heck, Mom even has this back pack thing I can ride in if I get tired on a walk. I'm telling you I have the good life. Most of all though, I've got love. Lots and lots of it.

Funny how things work out sometimes. When Mom went looking for her first dog, she thought she wanted an older couch potato, but she found Pippi - a puppy with a LOT of energy. And that turned out to be the best thing. Got Mom out and moving more. Then Cheeky joined the family. Next she thought she wanted another Min Pin, but found me. After I joined the family Cheeky got more playful and spunky. So to anyone else out there thinking of adopting - it's okay to have an idea of what you want, but keep an open mind. You just might find something better!
