Mama And “The Kids”

November 21, 2008

About two months ago, my daughter and her dog Mama moved in with me. Now the house has three Chihuahuas and one Staffordshire Terrier. Her name is Mama and is the most wonderful dog you could ever have. She is potty trained, doesn’t dig in the yard, doesn’t tear up furniture, and is really loveable. She only has one problem….

Mam thinks she is a little dog and wants to play with Jonesy, Sissy and Tinky. She has good intentions but gets a little rough for three Chihuahuas. She play bows with her ears up, barks and then bats at them with her paws. She loves to take a flying leap and chase them. When she gets to them, she pounces. One time she jumped up on the couch and nuzzled Tinky with her nose and threw her off the couch which landed Tinky on the floor. Other than that, they get along just great.  Although Jonesy, Tinky and Sissy keep a steady eyeball on her at all times.

In order for Jonesy, Sissy and Tinky to be able to go outside and get a little exercise and sunshine, I have to keep Mama indoors and close the sliding glass door.

Here is a picture of Mama and “The Kids”. She wants to go outside and play.  With the door closed, they feel really safe.

“NANNER NANNER NANNER…CAN’T GET ME!

LOOK AT THIS FACE….SHE’S JUST A WIDDLE PUPPY THAT CAN DO NO HARM.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how we can keep Mama from pouncing on the dogs. We have tried rattling soda cans with pennies in it and she does stop. She tends to forget and will do it again. She’s five years old, but thinks she’s a small puppy. HELP!

I FOUND A YOUTUBE VIDEO. THIS COULD BE MAMA AND JONESY!

NOW WHY CAN’T THEY PLAY LIKE THIS?

HEY…DONTCHA THINK IT MIGHT JUST BE  THREE CHIHUAHUAS WITH ATTATOOOOODS?

GRADUATION DAY!

November 14, 2008

tinkys-graduation-1I am not the best mannered little Chi in my house. There is a lot of things that I did that drove my mom crazy. I think they are a lot of fun. What’s wrong with jumping up and down and getting all excited when it’s breakfast time. I get so excited when I see the leash that my mom can’t get the leash on me. Darting out of the door is fun too.

But alas….my mom had enough and she took me to PetSmart to learn a few manners. Last week was graduation. They had a little graduation cap and I had my picture taken with Rachelle, my trainer. I also got a Certificate! Woo hoo.

At first it was really hard because I did not want to be there. I just wanted to be in my mom’s lap all the time. I didn’t like the other dogs, and I did not like the treats. So there!

Anyway, I came around and I learned a lot of neat things. Now I have manners. I now say, “Please” and “Thank you.” heh heh My IQ has also zoomed up to 9,423.

Hey everybody, look what Pedro gave me at Vote For Pedro! It is one of the cutest Awards I have seen in awhile. I am glad he loves my blog, that makes me feel pretty darn special.

There are a few Blogs that I love too, so I am going to pass this Award on to some that I love. Here goes…

1. I love Dennis The Vizsla Dog’s blog at Dennis’ Diary of Destruction. I can’t wait to see what misadventures that he has gotten himself into. He is a very smart dog with his own style of writing and a special way of spelling everything. ok bye

3. I also love Tony’s Y-not?? Blog and it is also a fun read. Tony is from Tasmania, Australia with that quirky Aussie humor.  He prides himself on being G Rated so feel free to run over there anytime and say, “Hi”.

4. Chasing Squirrels With Rusty is a great blog also. Rusty just ran for Vice President with Tuffy as President. He just got a new little Yorkie brother Riley, who is as cute as they come. I just love that blog.

5. And last but not least….I just LOVE Gina at Gina’s Public Diary. I love her blog because she makes me feel good. She is always positive and upbeat and brings a little slice of life in Memphis Tennessee. Gina, I love you.
