Thee Ohio State Buckeyes! Peanut Butter!! He loves to cuddle with Mom, sleep under the covers, chase his tail, high jump and "chewies"! He LOVES going for R-I-D-E-S or for W-A-L-K-S...especially if it means going to Papa's house!

PAISLEY!! :) Dogs walking by outside when he's inside, thunder, people that ignore him, getting his nails trimmed, when he can't climb a tree to get those pesky SQUIRRELS!!!! Having to stay home when Mom goes to work, and don't even SPELL the word bath!

Favorite Toy:
Anything that squeaks!

Favorite Food:
Pedigree, Baby Swiss Cheese, Life cereal, Triscuits, Cheezits with avocado dip

Favorite Walk:
Right down Main Street or to the park. And don't forget his most favorite, walking all over mom!

Best Tricks:
He plays catch and he can say "I love you"! And his BEST trick, is to get Mom to do ANYthing for him! :)

Arrival Story:
He was listed in a book at the pound, the smaller dogs were in 'foster care'. When I went to check him out, his foster 'mom' (And I use that term VERY lightly!) practically threw him in my arms, screaming...."He bites, he's aggressive and he runs away. I just can't deal with him anymore. He was my mother-in-law's dog (she had passed away) and we tried to keep him for sentimental reasons, but I just can't do it anymore!" So I'm holding him and thinking...holy crap...but when I looked down at him, he put his head on my shoulder, looked up at me and let out a long sad sigh. I took him home on the spot! I discovered days later while shaking out a rug, when he 'hit the deck' and went down on all fours, trying to become flat as a pancake, that he'd been abused by this woman. When I first got him, he only weighed 7 pounds and you could see and count his ribs! He lived outside on a farm with three HUGE dogs, which means he was probably last to eat, if he got anything at all! His original owner was excellent, he's so well potty trained, he actually will come up to you and 'push' on you with his front paws if he thinks you're taking too long, he loves to "talk" and his personality is a riot!! To this day, over two years later, I still cannot raise any blanket, towel or sheet up to fold because he will cower, and if he hears the dryer door open or sees me with a laundry basket, he runs and hides under the bed! I believe it's safe to assume the daughter-in-law abused him because of "who's" dog he was. And what a huge loss for her...he's NEVER given me one moment of grief, never bitten, never ran away, and certainly has never been aggressive! He's an angel wearing fur! He's absolutely adorable and oh so love-able. He's my Chihuahua on stilts!

He thinks he's ten foot tall and bullet proof!! :o) He LOVES his Mommy! And I'm pretty sure he knows he's found his 'furever' home and appreciates that so much! Oh, and the world revolves around him, just ask him!

Forums Motto:
Proud to be a Momma's boy!

Heart Disease

Well mom's been told I'm in the beginning stages of heart disease. It's a terribly long story and one bad vet & one great vet later....the second one got us our answers!

Mom knew I wasn't feeling well....beyond just being mopey or tired. The first vet said I was "perfectly healthy"....and Mom knew better. She knows me better than I know myself. The very next day my vet found out what was wrong.

It's not curable, but it's manageable....and we can live with that!! My grandpa says that I love my mommy so much my heart just got too big!!! I think he's right!!!

Lots of investigating now for Mom....lots of new stuff to learn....but we'll be fine. We may not have it all together, but together we have it all!

Mom tricked me again yesterday! But it was best for me....she took me to the dreaded vet!!!

I haven't been sleeping......I try to! But I've been shaking my head, a LOT! I like to sleep under the covers with Mommy, and I tried to be a gentleman and get out of bed when I had to shake my head....I really tried. But this went on for days, and I was looking tired....DOG tired.....my eyes were glazed and red from not sleeping. I kept pawing at my ear too. And when I walked I tilted my head down and to the left. I've been living under the bed during the day. And it's not like me to not be right by Mom all the time!!

Mom figured I had an ear infection, and she was right! But it was DOUBLE! Yep, that's right....double, as in both ears!!! My vet thinks I might be developing alleriges! So he gave mom some ear medicine and said I would be feeling better in a couple of days.

But guess what?! I slept all night! I'm feeling better already!! And mom is so glad! She was so worried about me! She felt bad that I was sick, but the vet told her it wasn't her fault...she felt better after that.

I woof my mommy!!!
