Likes: I like being with my Mommas the most. I also like running outside, snuggling, taking naps, and playing with Polkadot my kitty sister.
Pet-Peeves: I don't like when I don't get my way...like when Momma puts all my toys away to vacuum the floors...or when I only get one biscuit cookie with my dinner
Favorite Toy: Since I'm just a little pup, I really like to bite, not bad bity just playful bity...like Momma's fingers, her toes, her nose...I also like kitty toys *arf* and chasing Polkadot.
Favorite Food: I like my moisty puppy food, biscuit cookies, people food...really anything I can find
Favorite Walk: I love to go on walks with my pup brother Peeker the Pekingese!
Best Tricks: I can nap really well.
Arrival Story: I was posted on a North Carolina Craigslist. My previous owners had two Chihuahuas, my doggy Momma & Papa. They had three puppies, one being me of course, but they decided that they needed to give the three of us up.
Well, thankfully my human Momma saw me posted there and emailed them in hopes of adopting me. After talking with my previous owners, they agreed that she could adopt me. My new Momma drove 3 hours up & back just to adopt me. Now I lived with my human Momma Sarah, two kitties Samantha & Polkadot, and another doggy named Peeker, the Pekingese. Our family is complete :)
I had my first real class yesterday. Puppy school is tough. I am in a class with one other dog, his name is DOG...pronounced Dee-O-Gee. He is an English Mastiff puppy, just 9 weeks old and already 45 lbs I believe his Papa said. He is very laid back & smart. I am still very uneasy and unsure about him. I bark at him and my whole body shakes. I also bark at all the people that come over around the training pen. What are they looking at? I'm trying to work here!
Momma said I am doing very well though. I am learning to focus on her & on those treats. Man those treats sure are good! *arf*
So far I can sit & lay down...although laying down is still a bit tricky. I get it like 75% of the time. My little Momma Sarah is going to take a dog trainers course so she can be a dog trainer one day. She hopes to be certified through several different schools as time goes by. She said she's doing it all for me because she loves me that much. She wants me to be the best dog and be her example when she starts to teach the courses herself.
I hope I can make her proud.
She couldn't believe it when I first got the sit command in class. She told me she wanted to cry she was so proud of me.
Well, I better go and practice some more. Momma is going to post a video of what I've learned so far in about a week or so.
Momma bought me yet another article of clothing. So far I have an elf costume with matching elf hat & leash, navy blue sailor coat, which Momma's friends say makes me look like a sea captain, and now a t-shirt with Mickey Mouse on it covered in sparkly things. I grew out of my little blue Underdog sweatshirt, but now I can wear Peeker's clothes.
Also, Momma said that I am going to puppy school starting on Monday. I'm not sure what that means, but I will let everyone know how it goes. I just hope it means I get some treats.
Momma is going to update my page some more as the week goes by. We really enjoy working on it together & I look forward to all my pup pals seeing it.
Look at these pupcakes! Yummy, they sure look good. Little Mommy, Sarah, found them online. She is planning on making them for the Charlotte Chihuahua pup party on the 19th. Hopefully, she will let me test test them. Us Chihuahua's are very particular (actually that's just a ploy to get as many free samples as I can...a dogs gotta do, what a dogs gotta do! *arf*)
