Black and white Fridays

Chihuahua Cha-Cha (image)
Because it’s the “Chihuahua Cha-Cha” and what is better than that? Also this: the appearance standards set forth for the Chihuahua by the American Kennel Club are listed as “Graceful, alert, with saucy expression.” I’d say that about sums up my pups. To a T.

A tiny houseguest

A few days ago Josh, Chick and I welcomed a tiny houseguest into our apartment. Her name is Millie and she is a sweet rescue pup from the city shelter. She is an OTAT pup (of course) that we are fostering and so far she and Chick are getting quite good at tolerating one another:)

Marco? Polo!

Last weekend I headed to Chicago Animal Care and Control for what I thought was a meet and greet for a potential foster pup. She was a tiny chihuahua mix named Gracie. But by the time I had arrived she had already been transferred to another rescue (yay!).

So instead I hung out with this sweet pup in the photo above. His name is Polo and he was so lovely. When I first saw him he looked so, so sad in his cage. He is about six years old and an owner surrender, so probably pretty confused about why he was there. Once I took him outside, he was so happy and loved being in the fresh air. He’s available for adoption, if anyone is looking:)

Chihuahua party

On Sunday, Josh and I took Chick to her very own birthday party at Chicago Party Animals. For other dog lovers out there, this is totally normal I swear:)

Chick is a member of Perry Dog’s Downtown Chicago Chihuahua MeetUp, where they regularly host puppy play dates. Usually Chick isn’t the most social of dogs, but she had a blast this time. She spent the better part of an hour scavenging and making new friends while we stood by, thoroughly amused. It’s so important to socialize your dog and this was the perfect opportunity – fun for us and fun for Chick since it was all small dogs and a low-key atmosphere. The best part though was that it was also a benefit for the Almost Home Foundation (Chick brought a bag of treats to share, of course).

Until next time!

Throwback Thursday

throwback

My sweet pooch Frasier when he was no more than a year old. Now at 14, his eyes are just as piercing, if only with a few more gray hairs around his face. It’s so crazy to watch how much your pooch has grown over the years.
