Arrival Story:
We were not in any way looking for another dog BUT...... I saw an ad looking for a furever home for him and I couldnt stop myself, I HAD to meet him, bring him home and love him! Tico was living in a home with bigger dogs that were too rough with him and his owner wanted to find him a safer home. We drove 2 hours away to meet him and when I finally saw him I picked him up and he gave me the sweetest little Chi kisses, I melted like butter! It was love and kisses at 1st sight! Whats not to love???? He's 2 pounds of pure joy!!

Tico is afraid of just about everything~Loud noises, people, toys, you name it. He's just starting to come out of shell and tries to play with Parker. I've promised him he is safe here and I will always look out for him. Unfortunately I was not able to keep my promise and Tico was attacked by a Hawk in our own back yard. We are forever thankful that he survived and for all the love and support we received from our Dogster family! Since the attack Tico has really come out of his shell so to speak! He plays more, is much more vocal, he does the 4 yard dash in record time and will even occasionally play with a toy. We are having a BIG surprise pawty for his 1st woofday this Tuesday and will celebrate and cherish our little miracle Tee forever!!

SO much has happened in my life I don't know where to start!
In March Daddy disappeared. Yup up and disappeared.I didn't know what to think, Hu-sissy still went to school, Mamma still went to work and life seemed to go on as usual but Daddy never came back.
Then in June Mamma up and disappeared and left me with *Gulp* the adult hu-sibs. YIKES!
I have a schedule to adhere to, I can't be staying up all night playing X-Box and sleeping till noon!
After 10 Loooooooong days and nights Mamma came home smelling like sunshine and pools, sand and ??? alligators? huh?
The next weekend Daddy came home and man oh man did we Pawty!
Steaks on the grill, early bedtimes....Pawfect!
Come Monday he was gone again...What in the name of Chihuahua was going on?

In July Mamma disappeared again and this is where I drew the line!
I have NEVER been left without Momma in all my born days, now she's taking off willy nilly and leaving us with those those.... Ruffians?
I called an emergency Amigo meeting and plotted out our plan. 1st up, someone run away so Mom has to come home, preferably Baby or Charlie!
Second, Start peeing all over so the "Adults" (and I use that term VERY loosley!) will have to call Mamma to come home!
It seemed to work cuz Mamma came home after 7 days and loved us up.

Then she started dragging all these boxes home and packing up stuff. I thought maybe Hoarders was finally coming and she was going to put up a good front!
I helped her by nudging some boxes to the birds cage. Seriously, they can GO!
Mamma packed and packed, and packed some more. When she started to pack dog beds and dog toys that's when we really freaked out!
What could this possibly mean? Was she donating our stuff to the shelter's AGAIN? Was Hoarders REALLY coming? Was someone moving in or moving out?
It was quite the conundrum...... And we we're all in a state of uncertainty.
Next thing we knew Momma came home with a GIANT yellow truck and the madness began...................

Thank You to all my furiends for helping me celebrate my 3rd Woofday!
Big Chi kisses to STAFU, H2H Chihauhua's,Tiny Paws and PDPC for remembering me even though I haven't been on in eons!
I miss everypup SO much and am right now devising a fiendish plan to get Mom to quit that dumb old job of hers and devote her life to me, as it should be.
My brudders and I are planning to picket in front of our house as soon as the snow melt's :) Mid June or so~bol~
Any one that wants to join is more than welcome. We are currently looking for catchy slogans to attract the attention of the local media.
Something along the lines of ...."KEEP MOMS HOME"!! or
"Doggies rights for full time Pawrents"
When I signed on here there was NO getting out of bed in the dark to potty, NO Mom leaving while it was still dark and definitely NO being left alone with...................
The Gas Master (aka Baby Pug)
I'm going to need therapy(and a gas mask) if this continues!
That being said, I had a lovely Woofday pawty, Pawsome liver cake from Happy Dog Barkery, Yummy bully stick pawty favors and lots of great pressies.
The biggest little Chi kiss to all my Dogster fuirends, I miss you all!

As yet another Chicago winter drags on and on and on, and on and on and on.
(6-10 inches today & tomorrow sigh)
I think I have perfected the art of survival for said winters.
First and foremost......
Pee inside as much as possible to protect your manhood from snow and frost damage!
Mom espically likes it when I pee ON the potty in the bathroom :)

Secondly, stay by the fat and/or furry kid!
In this case that would be my brudders Parker & Baby!
Parky has wonderful luxurious hair to hide in and Baby has enough body fat for 6 Chihuahua's!

Third, refrain from unnecessary movement or barking as this releases much need body heat, energy and ooompffff.....And you know I need my oooompfff!

Lastly and perhaps most importantly, Put on your most pathetic starving face and beg as much food as possible from the hoomans, to comfort you on those long winter days and nights!

When all else fails.....Curl up next to the heating vent on a fleece blankie and dream of warm sunshiny days :)
