   Leave a bone for Lupe

Lulu Belle (i don't know where the Belle came from...), lou, Boo Boo, Missy Girl, Rat Girl

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

FOOOOD - you'e think she never gets fed!!!

anyone 'messin' with her, esp. her feet, or my Mom's puppy trying to 'play'!

Favorite Toy:
Toy? I'm too prissy to play with toys! But I like to chase mosquitoes!

Favorite Food:
Tiny Iams bites.. but I still eat out of Sarges dish! I'd MUCH rather have people food ANY day, ANY time, and ANY thing not hard and crunchy! I like candy too... but I'm not supposed to have it. Sometimes my mom gives me the last bite of a DumDum.

Favorite Walk:
Around the yard.... I'm too little to go for walks anywhere else... the foxxes will get me or a Raven might carry me away... but i'll go if you make me.

Best Tricks:
Tricks? Who do you think I am? I'm a prissy lap dog, I don't do no stinking tricks. You just give me food for being me - cute and irresistable!

Arrival Story:
My mom is a SUCKER for dogs with a sad, sappy story!!!! Now I might not get all the details right... but it was somethign like this... I'm from Oregon actually. My owner had me and three other Chi's, one was my mom and one was my sister (i think). Well... he took really good care of us and spoiled us, but then he died. His wife couldn't take care of all of us so we all got shipped up to a relative in Alaska. They didn't really have lives that accomodated FOUR Chihuahua's, so some of us went to other homes. *blush* I was rather pathetic though... I was the stereotypical bug-eyed, shaky, nervous Chi that people don't really like. Another relative, Kat tried to take me home, but I was a freaky dog and was mean to the other dog (Kiana) and to ST's cats... well that just wouldn't fly... so they sent me back. But Kat is smart... she knows Rosie (my mom now) and knows Rosie is a sucker for dogs! So she told Rosie 'bout me. She came and met me and was not only NOT impressed AT ALL, but rather revolted by the idea of a land-shark, ankle biting, rat-dog..... but her heart is just too big to turn her back! She figured I just needed some time away from those other Chi's and some TLC... then she could find me a new home. She came and got me....... at least that's how *I* remember it!

She's never had a little dog before though and didn't know how utterly charming we are!!!! On day #1 I bit that big 'ol Emit on the nose to show him I can't be eaten, and being the coy lass I am, I worked my way into Rosie's heart..... and here I am.... little Queen of the house! My mom tells people that I'm a lot like Princess just 50#s smaller. I never met Princess, but she must have been awesome... cuz I know *I* am!!! My humans don't carry me as much as I think they should, they make me walk wherever Emit has to. They make me act like a real dog, they won't even cater to me at 40 below... I still have to go outside like Emit does. Mom says it's something about breaking me of that small-dog, 'pamper-me' mentality. Who you callin Small?? ------------- BTW we ARE looking for another Chihuahua - --info at -- I'm home alone often for a few hours at a time and would like the company ------------- It's true.... she's got me pegged and well trained! Lulu is a registered Chihuahua - but I've never seen her papers and don't know what her real name is. As you see, she speaks for herself!

OMG -- Dogster has RSS feeds to Dog Blogs now... So it's time to start a blog of my own.

I never really saw the purpose before - to have a blog I mean - because nobody wants to have to visint link after link to see what's new there. But Dogster has caught up with the blogosphere and is putting RSS feeds on the Dog Blogs, which we all know is the ONLY way to go.... so I might be able to find a little value in logging my butt-sniffing adventures if I know you might add my blog to your bloglines.

Next... will Dogster add the ability to comment... I mean... it's the new way to do things.. the social networking way. We'll see... this is just to get my blog pump primed... more later when I can put some thought into it.
