Arrival Story: Well, I was really wanting a new dog, because my previous dog (an Australian Shepherd) was hit by a car and killed instantly...I was terribly upset for quite some time. I still miss her. I decided I wanted to get a Chihuahua. And I knew what colors I wanted too, which was black and tan and it had to be a male. Well, me and my parents went to our local pet store, and I found one Chi which was female but, she was sable colored. My dad was on the other side where I haven't looked yet, and he saw Scrappy, and told me come over there. I went over there and my eyes lit up! I was sooo happy that they had a male that was the exact colors I wanted. Needless to say, my parents didn't hesitate to purchase him, because he was sooo darn adorable. He will however be my last "Pet Store" dog as I do not and will never again support puppy mills. I had no idea at the time that puppy mills even existed!
Where do I begin. These past few days have been so unfair. Saturday, Mommy decided to put me in the pool because she says I am overweight. She made me swim and swim and swim. I HATE that darn pool. Yesterday, she made me swim some more. What is with all this swimming??? Ok, so maybe I need to lose a pound...But no more! Ok? Mom. Today, Butters had this bright idea to turn me into a mummy...whatever that is. Sheesh, I didn't know he was going to tee pee me!
Mommy is making me stay home now while she takes Butters to work with her. I have gotten to the point where I am aggressive towards other dogs and people. IT all started after Mommy got Butters. See, today Mommy had brought me outside to go potty along with Butters. There was a lady walking down the street, and I chased after her. So Mommy had to go get me and bring me back because I wouldn't listen. Now I have to stay home because I will not listen to Mommy and I want to chase people. Mommy says that it's not good to have a dog at work in the office that is not friendly to new people.
Well, there hasn't really been anything new latley. I am taking quite well to Butters. We now nap together and play all the time. He loves to come bug me while I am sleeping...But I get a little grumpy and snap at him...I don't hurt him tho. I mostly sleep alot now...I am sitting on Mommy's lap while Butters is sleeping at the moment. That is the only time I can spend time with Mommy now...Because when I try while Butters is awake, he gets jealous and wants to be picked up and he gets in the way of me getting my lovins from Mommy. I don't really mind tho. I get to sleep with Mommy at night while Butters has to stay in his crate. That's because I don't potty in the house unlike him! So I guess that is my special cuddle time with Mommy.
There was a new dog that came over yesterday...I am getting alot better with my social skills...I took to her quite well. She was a golden labrador retriever. She was only 9 months old...She had a fun time chasing Butters around the house while he ran under the couch to hide...It was really funny...Because he would pop out like a little mouse and chase her...Then she would chase him, and he would run back under the couch and do it all over again! It was cute! Mommy got a little worried about him because she was alot bigger than Butters. And she got really close to pouncing on him a couple of times. I just stayed back and watched. But, usually I am there trying to break up the playing because I think that there is something else going on, and I am very protective over my new brother. Mommy said she might have to start leaving me at home during the day when she usually takes me to work with her. I am getting a little too aggressive to new people. I wasn't that way before until Mommy got Butters. I just try to watch over him.
