Wordless Wednesday: New Bed!

My Momma bought me a new cuddle bed.  Of course, out of all my doggie siblings, I must be the first to lay on it.  Did I ever tell you I am obsessed with beds? I must have at least 10 of them around the house and at least one in each car (ok, ok, so I HAVE to share them with my  siblings!).   Each time the beds come out of the dryer I push them down with my paws and lay on them immediately.  If I go to the store when my pawrents are shopping, I must stop to lay on as many beds as possible.   Sadly, my pain in the hind brother Monkey always tries to push or wrestle me out of the beds.  He also makes holes in them that my Momma doesn't find until they go in the washing machine (I think he is trying to sabotage my bed obsession).  Momma gets mad trying to get all the fluffies out of the machine and (of course) she has to throw the bed out and buy a replacement.    Hmmm... come to think of it, perhaps Monkey is helping me after all.  He is my bed obsession enabler!  I take back anything bad I said about him - WOOF!

Wordless Wednesday: Everybody Say Ch-Chi-Chihuahua!

Out of 36 takes, we only had two photos where no one was blurry, looking away or jumping off.  There were a lot more toys, but they all fell off from all the jumping.  Only one little chihuahua was too lazy to move from where he was... can you guess who that might have been?
Daisy, Monkey and me with some of our toys...

Wordless Wednesday: First Aid Chihuahua

We organized a pet first aid class last weekend and one of the things participants had to do was practice placing an emergency dog muzzle.  If it might save my life or another doggie's life someday - I am all for it!  I will be posting more photos about the class soon!

YAY! We Have No Banana...

...I won't wear banana this year!  Well, after much thinking -- I have been spared.  My momma originally said I would be wearing my old banana costume for Halloween, but when she purchased a sailor shirt with funds going to the Anti-Cruelty society -- she could not resist.  She then went on a deep search to find a matching sailor hat.  She wound up finding one for cats on Etsy.  Who knew they sold such things?   I lucked out - I will not have to wear a banana piece on my head (even if my name is Piranha Banana)!  But I know she's saving the banana costume for another occasion.  

My old banana costume...I look like one of the conehead family members - WOOF!
This is my new Halloween costume for this year - WOOF WOOF!

Piranha Banana the Chihuahua to the Rescue

       I will no longer keep you in suspense -- good guess Ann Staub!  I was in a local health fair at  Encore Senior Living  letting people know about the benefits of therapy dogs -- and the work we do.   I had a chance to take a few pictures inside a real live ambulance with some of the emergency medical staff.  Sending them a big WOOF  for all the life saving work they do!   

It's been a loonnng day!

Birdie and I had a table at the fair, but Birdie hurt her leg the night before,
 so we brought in her photo instead. 
After a day of shaking paws and high fiving everyone, I was exhausted!  Can you tell?
