   Leave a bone for Chico

Chicken, Chicken Butt, Brat, Bubby, Bubby-Butt, Bubba, Bubberie, Hunny Bunny, My Little Techichi (believed to be the first Chis back in ancient times, they were worshiped by the Aztecs and Toltecs who believed that Chis would lead them into the afterlife)

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

Mommy, burrowing, walks, playing with Chavez' lil Diego and our kitty Straught, sitting in mommy's lap, riding in the car, sleeping in mommy and daddy's bed, getting petted/chest scratched, treats/people food.

Fleas, baths, his new harness, when mommy messes with his tail & strange men especially if Mommy is around. He is my protector.

Favorite Toy:
He doesn't really like toys much. He would rather cuddle.

Favorite Food:
His new favorite is Purina Little Bites Indoor Formula. He loves Canine Carry Outs treats...Beef flavor and of course ANYTHING that Mommy is eating.

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere as long as he gets lots of attention and praise.

Best Tricks:
That he trained his mommy to do whatever he wants when he wants it, he also knows sit and we are working on bow. He is especially proud that he has trained me to jump at the sound of his special squeaky-bark.

Arrival Story:
I bought him from what I now know is a backyard breeder, the fact that he had me meet him in a parking lot should have clued me in. Chico got sick in less than 24 hours. I woke up at around 3am to find him staring at nothing all glassy-eyed and his legs straight out. I thought that he had gotten too hot so I took him outside but he couldn't even stand up on his own. I rushed him to the ER. I found out that he had hookworms and his blood sugar and potasium levels had dropped so low he began having seizures. The vet told me that he had had the worms for a while because it takes time for a dog's potasium to drop as low as his was. When I called the breeder and told him that Chico was sick and that I expected him to help with vet bills the breeder wanted to put him to sleep. I refused. The breeder than accused me either deliberatly or accidently poisoning him......I was furious! Chico had not been able to stay awake more than a few seconds at a time since I had gotten him and he had barely left my lap. I called my bank and stopped payment on the check and never spoke with the breeder again. Chico came home 2 days and $400 later happy and healthy and so hyper that I thought he would never stop moving......I have loved him like crazy ever since. He is my very special boy and he makes me smile everyday. He gives me such special love......I can't even begin to describe it.

Chico is happiest when sitting in mommy's lap or cuddled with me in bed. People often comment on how content he is as soon as I walk in the door and pick him up. His daddy says that Chico and I are soul mates. I have to agree.

Being A Big Brother Is Hard Work

My new little brother is home....what a brat! He jumps and bites and barks and chews on me and anything else that he can get his little mouth around, even when I am trying to poo. I mean who does that?

Sometimes he is kind of fun I guess. We do play a lot and you should see him pounce on that cat.....oh man is that funny to watch.

It's ok to curl up in our new crate and bed that mommy got us too I suppose. It's nice and warm and cozy.

I guess I could get used to having him around, I just hope he calms down a little bit or maybe a lot.

*sigh* What in the heck he is barking at now...Hey knock it off!


Almost Time....Oh No!

Mommy says it's almost time for my baby brother to come home. I realized the other day that he's sort of ok I guess. I was walking by and he jumped on me. Well, of course I'm not going to take that from some snot-nosed little kid so I jumped back and then you know what? He jumped back..well now I had to jump on him again. After a few times of this it got kind of fun but shhhh don't tell mommy that she gives me more attention if she thinks I'm scared...tee hee she is so wrapped around my little umm paw.

More later....

Love and Sloppy Chi Kisses.

Well, back at home and lovin' the lazy days. Life is good, sleeping, scratching, eating, drinking did I mention sleeping?
At night mommy and I go for walks on our turf again and I get to remark all my old spots.

Oh yeah, look out ladies Chico's back!
