Holiday Potluck Party!

Well, here I am with Santa. I took this photo at my holiday potluck. We collected $140 for Animal Welfare League and the Trio Foundation. We also had a sweater exchange. People brought sweaters, carriers, toys and leashes (any dog items) they no longer needed and paid whatever they thought it was worth. All funds and leftover/unsold items would go to the foundation and shelter to use for dogs needing homes. Always helpful for those foster homes when they have tiny chihuahuas needing sweaters.

New Assisted Living Home Visit

On Saturday we visited a new place in Palos. The residents were really nice. One resident said she really liked me sitting on her lap and did not want me to leave. They asked me to come back at Christmastime to do some tricks. Maybe I will do my spin? I don't know. We'll have to see. Always nice to make new friends!

I passed my TDI and I get a Howl-O-Ween Party!

We are going to be so busy this month! This weekend I am going to the Sunrise nursing home facility and next weekend is my Howl-O-Ween Pizza party. I don't get to eat pizza anymore (due to wheat allergies), but I get cupcakes!

My mommy and daddy asked a friend who is in culinary school to make special doggy cupcakes I can eat (which don't have wheat). All my doggy friends are going to celebrate with me. I cannot wait to eat my cupcakes. All of them. Yum.

We are also looking around for a banana costume for me to wear for the party. We are inviting some doggies that need adoping to the party and collecting funds for the shelter. My friends at K9 Tailshakers are our space hosts (they are awesome!) and Speck photography is going to take pictures of my friends in their costumes. We are also having a costume contest. I can't wait to see what everyone is going to wear.

Plum Creek Nature Preserve Visit

Recently visited Plum Creek Nature preserve - will be posting more details soon. We did a walk through the preserve and were taught about how dogs spread their scent to mark the areas. The people there were very nice, and afterwards we did paw prints in the sand. It was a lot of fun. I can't wait to go again.

P.A.W.S. Walk for Homeless Animals

Did the PAWS walk for Homeless Animals in Tinley Park on Sunday. Walked the entire time. Someone told me it was 1.5 miles ++ I think they lied. Felt more like 10!

My tiny little paws are tired... sooo tired...

White Sox Game

We went to the White Sox game last night and it was really chilly. I was shaking almost the whole time until the bratwurst arrived. Wha? Bratwurst?! YUM! People puhleeze. I did not eat the whole thing. Just tiny pieces of the ends - delish!

I had so much fun. Food. Baseball. Food. Food. Baseball. Food.

Except, except for a big white/yellow dog behind me who kept trying to sneak his head by mine looking for food. Her name was Paisley. Anyway, Paisley proceeded to smack her tail all over the place and sniff around looking for food. Then she tried to pretend she was little like me by trying to lay on her parents laps. I would not have felt so bad had she not stuck her nose near my ears so many times. Anyway, the game was fun. I got to go around the field and walk the doggie parade. Got some nice little gifts from Hills Science Diet and Nature's Recipe. People kept stopping to take pictures (not mine - my humans forgot to bring a camera!). Doesn't matter to me, I just wanted to go back to my seat to see the Sox win! Sox WIN!

AY AY AY.... SOY FAMOSO! (I am famous!)

I was called upon to be videotaped for a dog's boutique in California and being the little ham that I am, how could I say No? WOOF! Check me out in the video - I'm wearing a sombrero and serape - dancing, spinning, eating, er, playing guitar, I am the mariachi band. I have been cloned! I cannot wait to check out their online boutique once it's ready! I love to shop.
Let it be known that I received payment in fresh chicken throughout the 1++ hour shoot! Afterwards I had a chihuahua 5 de Mayo meetup at K9 Tailshakers! We had a great time and ate a few bites of corn tortillas. Below are some photos of my friends and me wearing my outfit!

I Love The New Sr. Center!

3 weeks ago I visited a new senior rehabiliation center in Country Club Hills. It was one of the funnest times I've had. A lot of the residents wanted to hold me and when I sat on his lap he scratched my ear for a really, really long time. I was trying to stay alert but kept getting kind of sleepy. I have a job to do, after all! I would add pictures but due to privacy issues and laws - something about hippos - I am not allowed to have my picture taken with the residents for distribution. That is ok - it wasn't my best look day anyway - I was not wearing a bow tie!
