I thought I should bring you up to date with all that is going on at our house..... I have a new brother and a new sister..... Mom can't resist a dog that is at the shelter in crisis.... I'm glad because I wouldn't be here, but I think enough is enough. My brother, Nicky was rescued from a local shelter when the air conditioning went out and it was the hottest day of the year... .Mom drove a couple of hours to save 6 dogs that day and my brother stole her heart as well as a hamburger from the bag she bought to share with the other rescued dogs... .my brother is like that.... he loves to steal food.... I have to give him a little growl sometimes when he comes near my treats.
Then a few months later another little Bichon was in trouble at another shelter and her life was in danger....she was only 9 months old.... Dad went to get her and we all fell in love with little Chanel. So, now we have 5 kids in our family. Most of us get along pretty well... Licorice is still kind of bossy and Taffy is still a tom-boy.... I am the sweetest and prettiest, of course .... .Nicky and Chanel are best friends and play rough a lot....
We all love to get in our little car seats in mom's SUV and run around town with her..... We usually take a nap and sometimes Mom lets us share a frozen yogurt..... Sometimes we go to the dog park and sometimes just a long drive.
Every morning, Mom walks with us and we have a dog walker named Uncle Tommy.... he walks over our house and helps Mom and Dad walk us through the nature preserve.... it's kind of fun....sometime we watch squirrels and sometimes there are geese on the lake....
Typing all of this has made me real sleepy .... I think I'll go cuddle up with Mom on the sofa and watch "All My Children" on TV.... Mom Tivo-ed it and then sits and cries when she watches it.... how silly is that????

I used to live with another family and my name was Angel.... I can't forget that was my name so I answer to Angel or Coconut.... especially when someone is calling me to eat. I love food....almost any kind. I will admit though, treats are my favorite...especially doggie peanut butter slices. My Mom says they smell better than any human peanut butter. She gives me a (very) small piece when I do my business outside. It wasn't easy to learn where I was supposed to do this thing...but when my Mom gave me treats, it made it a lot easier to remember to do it. Now, I can even fool her... I pretend I am doing something on the grass and then stand in front of her with a sad face.... sometimes she thinks I really did something and I get a treat.. But lately I think she is on to me and sometimes says "no". It's a word I hear a lot in my house, but I also hear lots of "love yous too" I think my Mom is really smitten with me.... She coos and giggles when she holds me. And she is always talking about how cute I am.
I like my new sisters...but sometimes they don't seem to be real crazy about me.... Licorice is a Chihuahua and thinks she is the queen of the house. I let her think that because she is real grumpy sometimes. She will run around and play with me and tumble on the floor, but most of the time..she just wants Mom to hold her...what a sissy! Taffy is my other sister and she is a Papillon and really pretty ....but she only hangs out with my Dad. Maybe she is a tom-boy or something.... no girly things ever.
My Mom and Dad help out with animal rescue and sometimes they bring home dogs to foster. I mean I do like dogs as long as they don't vie for my parents attentions too much. Most foster doggies don't stay too long... My Mom workds real hard to find them good homes like mine.
Well, I've been up for an hour now and I really feel the need to curl up on a pillow near the fireplace.... I'll talk to you guys again sometime....
