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!

mama-hooded-jacket1

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?

Happy Howl O Ween!

October 31, 2008

Hi everybody,

Thought we dropped off the face of the earth? Well, we did. Just wanted to show everyone what Jonesy, Tinky, Sissy and Mama are going to be for Howl O Ween!

THIS IS JONESY AS “COUNT JONES-U-LA”

THIS IS “SAINT  TINKY” (SHE IS ANYTHING BUT..)

THIS IS “SISSY THE CLOWN”

COULDN’T RESIST THIS ONE…SISSY THE CLOWN 2 MINUTES AFTER PUTTING ON COSTUME.

MAMA HAS A WIG, CAPE AND SKIRT ON. SHE IS GOING AS A “HUSSY”

Since I have been on a budget these last few months, my daughter and I went to the Dollar store. All costumes were a dollar except for Mama’s. Hers was three dollars!

WE WISH ALL OUR BLOGGY FRIENDS A HAPPY HOWL O WEEN.

SCARY TEETH

June 26, 2008

Pedro at Vote For Pedro has some pretty scary teeth. But they don’t compare to Jonesy who has scary teeth AND  even SCARIER eyes! He is even scaring Tinky! And he was only yawning!

I know you thought Jonesy was a sweet little namby pamby wimpy boy, but you haven’t seen his darker side…just look at that mean assed dog. Why he can attack your ankles and lick them until you cry, “Uncle”. Yeah, “Don’t Mess With The Zohan.”

 Hey all you doggies out there…do you have scary teeth? Are they scarier than Jonesy’s? I want to see them. What do you say?

AND THE WINNERS ARE….

June 25, 2008

 As you all know, I posted a picture of these three dogs and asked my bloggy friends if they would like to put their own caption to the pictuure. I had a lot of responses which were all very funny.  In order to keep everything on the up and up, I had my co-workers decide who they thought had the best caption.

The ballots are in, and once again, they  were transferred over to the CPA (Chihuahua Public Accounting) firm of Jones, Siss and Tink for their tabulation of the results. The results are a secret until they are handed over to me and I read them live on my blog. 

I now have in my hand, three envelopes that were just handed to me. The winners will be honered with the MERITORIOUS SERVICE TO THE CASE OF BLOGDOM AWARD! Yes, this award means nothing. But, if it means something to you, you can take this picture and the honor and post it on your sidebar, or you may not….

And the winners are…….

 Rusty at Chasing Squirrels With Rusty

 

 Rusty’s Caption: “You Might Be A Redneck If You Take Pictures of Your Dogs Wearing Bubba Teeth!”

Dennis at Dennis’ Diary of Destruction 

    Dennis’s Caption: “Hi, I’m Larry, This Is My Brother Darryl, And This Is My Other Brother Darryl!”                                           

                                        Patrick & Jack at The Puppy Dog Blog 

 Patrick & Jack’s Caption: “The Three Amigos…Dumb, Dumber And Dumbest.”

I really appreciate everyone’s participation. This is what makes blogging so much fun. I  would like to send Rusty, Dennis, and Patrick & Jack a SURPRISE for their winning the caption contest. If you are interested, please email me your address and I will ship it off to you right away! Thanks everyone for participating! 

 

 

CHIHUAHUA RACES ~ UPDATE

June 25, 2008

Last May I posted about Chloe who won the fastest Chihuahua at the Petco unleashed competition. I just received an email from Chloe’s mom Trina, with an update on Chloe’. They had a television debut on ABC 7/KGO and Trina wrote,

“Hello Everyone!

Here’s the clip of our television deput — har har!

The Annual Chihuahua Race is Back: 6/20

We had a great time at the ABC 7/KGO . Chloe finished 2nd, I think?

 ***You will notice from the video that Chloe’ didn’t “sprint” like her usual. She instead hopped, pranced and chased after Manny (View from The Bay Winner) —Haha! I loved how Mel and I gained 10 lbs instantly—Goodness! Haha!***

Everyone was nice and he little Chi’s enjoyed playing.

This was such a  wonderful experience.

And we bet that the PETCO National Race in San Diego will be crazy fun.

We are very excited! We will keep you all posted.

And now, back to our training…

GO CHLOE’! GO SAN FRANCISCO!

Thank you for all the support & well-wishes!  Take Care and God Bless,

Love,

Mel, Trina and Chloe’ SOLEDAD”

Hey Trina,

I think I know why Chloe’ came in second….did you see how slick that floor was? Give Chloe’ some good old fashioned turf and she’ll show them what’s up!

THREE HOT DOGS

June 24, 2008

Last week we had a horrific heat wave. It’s been averaging 107 degrees. Since  I work and it has been so hot, I can’t help think about Jonesy, Sissy and Tinky all by themselves at home. Of course they have plenty of water, but you still can’t help worry about them. 

I heard that dogs keep cool by panting, and by wetting their chests. Aha!…I got a bainstorm and decided to get a little pool for the dogs to swim in so they can keep cool (I know….I’m watching entirely too much Dog Whisperer). After work, I went to Wal Mart and bought a little two ring plastic kiddy pool. I blew it up and filled it with nice cool water.

Since there is no life guard on duty, I sat with them and gave them a few pointers on swimming. I also made them watch this doggy swimming video a few times until I thought it sunk in. 

Once I felt they were water safe, I put them in the pool. Ooooh what a wonderful time they had splashing and paddling around the pool. They were sooo happy, and loved the water. I think I may have to get Jonesy some water wings!  I just know Tinky wants to go on the high diving board. Sissy was so thrilled and was splashing all over the pool (yeah…right).

Seriously though….I will put the dogs in the pool every night after work. Once they are out of the pool I will give all of them some treats. I figure in a few weeks, they might get this idea….

YOU MIGHT BE A REDNECK IF….

June 19, 2008

 

IF YOU AND YOUR DOGS USE THE SAME TREE, YOU’RE SURE’NUFF A REDNECK

Okay, it’s time to get silly again. I love to get silly pictures from Flickr or Google Images and try figure out captions for them. Can you think of another caption for this picture?

If you leave a comment with a caption, a winner will be decided and once again the  “Meritorious Service To The Case of Blogdom” honor will be bestowed upon the winner. Just to let you know that receiving this honor means nothing. It’s  like underwear to Sharon Stone.

The captions will be tallied by my co-workers and tabulated by the CPA (Chihuahua Public Accounting) Firm of Jones, Siss & Tink, Inc. Come on now…..put your thinking caps on. Let’s see if we can out-caption Dennis, or Tony at TazBlog I know you can do it! 

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A STUFFY

June 17, 2008

Hello everyone! My name is Harry and this is my little buddy Cheech the Chihuahua. For no reason,  Sharon at Chasing Squirrels With Rusty stuffed us in this little box and shipped us off to California. We were in that box for what seems like an eternity.  It was very dark in there and it was not fun being bounced around from Texas to California. Besides Cheech was a little gassy and he kept farking (farting and barking),  and that was not very pleasant for me.  I wish Chihuahuas would stop eating beans.  When we got to California, this nice lady opened up our box and let out a squeal. She was really happy to see us. Now we can finally breathe and see daylight. It is so bright out. Can you see my squinty eyes?

Hey Cheech, California looks pretty good. Aaahhgh, I can hardly move my legs. Gotta stretch ‘em so we can get outta this box.  Move over, your are hogging all the box. Hey my back legs and my butt are numb. Kick them for me will you, Cheech?

Oh no! What is that barking noise? It looks like a Chihuahua that is excited to see me. But he doesn’t look too friendly. He looks like an attack Chihuahua to me. And is he loud! I think I’ll growl back at him and show him what’s up!

 HA…. I scared him with my mean growl and that wimpy Chihuahua ran off with his ears down and his tail between his legs. I can see him shiverin’ . Guess I showed him a thing or two. Get outta Dodge! heh heh 

Uh oh! Who’s this? I guess I didn’t scare this one. What the hey! What are you doing with your teeth in my fluff? Hey that’s my butt you have in your mouth! Take it easy! Oops it bit on my spot that makes me growl. That should scare it. Nope..that didn’t work. HELP!!!

 Whew Cheech, I don’t know about this California. They have a lot of left wing Chihuahuas here. Look at me, I’m a mess. I have dirt all over me, my butt is aching, my nose is bent, and I think I have a shiner.  Cheech, where were you when I needed you? What…you Chihuahuas stick together? Hey, I could sure use a stale corn chip and a glass of water right about now!

Hey Harry, my name is squirrel. I too was shoved in a box and sent to California, and that little fat one did the same thing to me. Now look at me, I am natty and nasty, my underarms smell, I’m blind in one eye, and I have a constant headache. I can say one thing though, we still have our stuffing. They tug me out of the toy box and bring me onto the lawn, shake the crap outta me and leave me for days in the cold of the night and the heat of the sun. If it wasn’t for their gardener, I would be there still. Life in California sucks. Let me show you a nice place that we can hide until the coast is clear.

 Further adventures of Cheech will be coming soon to The Empty Nest . Keep an eye out and visit soon. 

THE VIEW FROM MY BATHTUB

June 16, 2008

As I sat languishing in my hot bubble bath, soaking my troubles away, I heard 12 little paws pitter pattering down the hallway. I didn’t have the door completely closed and suddenly I saw a little brown nose nudge the bathroom door open. Sissy, Tinky and Jonesy ran into the bathroom like gangbusters. Hey wait a minute you guys, can’t anyone have a little privacy? I can’t believe that they didn’t snicker at the sight they saw.

HEY MOM, WHATCHA DOIN’? WHERE DID ALL YOUR FUR GO?

RUBBOARD STOMACHE

June 5, 2008

Okay everyone…I finally mustered up enough courage to post this video. But I am not going to post it without a thorough explanation. I don’t want everybody out there to think that I may be a “sandwich short of a lunch”.

One night I was in my bedroom, and I was playing music on my computer. Now everyone knows I love Lisa Haley  ‘cuz she makes me really really happy. Her song Rubboard Stomach came on I started to get in one of my stupidly happy moods (no alcohol involved here), and I started to sing along with Lisa.

I looked over on the bed, and I had six Chihuahua eyeballs staring at me. I grabbed Tinky and made her “dance” to the music. 

Tinky will never make it on “SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE”, and she will never get a ticket to Las Vegas. But…. we did have fun  I had fun.

Okay…..here goes….I’m gonna click on the “Publish” button!
