Hey everyone, it’s Sissy. I bet you didn’t know that not only am I a Chihuahua,  I am a working dog. My “Official” working dog title is “Bag Sniffer”. It is my job to check all bags coming into the house, right at the front door. You never know what could be in those bags. Maybe there is a chip in there that I can savor!. Like a drug sniffing dog, I am highly trained to sniff out and detect any type of contraband, such as stuffies, squeakies, bones and bully sticks. There is  nothing that comes and goes through this house that I don’t know about.  NOTHING…I tell ya!

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.

MEMPHIS Tennessee (AP).  You can see it in their tail wags and hear it in their barks. They say that it is difficult to describe, but once they experience it, it’s Tuffy all the way! “He is very charismatic. It’s an indescribable experience,” said Sissy, 7, after hearing White House Hopeful Tuffy as he addressed a packed rally of all of his bloggy friends.tuffy-for-president.jpg 

“I think he has a lot of momentum and I’m really excited about his free pet insurance for all pets  plan.  I know he’s going to do a lot of great things for us,” said Cody Bear. “His speech made me glad to be a Canine again.”

Knuckles, who is registered as an Indepawdent said, “Tuffy has my vote.” Music was playing, “Who Let The Dogs Out”, as Tuffy left the arena. What a frenzy! It’s Tuffy fever!

Tuffy, a Memphis Tennessee Chihuahua, son of a White American Chihuahua mother, is kicking off his campaign a little late, but backed by his Campaign Manager The Aged Cat, he was able to raise more campaign money than Hillary.

“Tuffy, who has been endorsed by all of his bloggy friends  thinks he has a good chance of winning.  His bloggy friends are pretty heavy hitters in the pawlitical arena. Even if Hillary or McCain wins the popular vote, we are confident that Tuffy will gain all the electoral votes to win the nomination for President.  ALL of Tuffy’s bloggy friends are Super Delegates and are committed to him at the 2008 National Convention. We are also going for the feline endorsement, and Tinky will help us with the younger vote,” said The Aged Cat. 

It’s not decided yet, but if Tuffy is nominated, Rusty, a feisty Yorkie from Texas is a shoe in for Tuffy’s running mate. Since Jonesy  is the best dog for the job, it is inevitable that he will be picked as the head of the CIA (Canine Intelligence Agency).  Sissy will probably be the Secretary of Kibbles, and Checkers will be the Ambassador of Silliness.

Do we have your support?

Ear Cleaning Concoction in New Containers I Just Bought 

The labels say, “Mama’s Ear Cleaner” and “Jonesy, Sissy and Tinky’s Ear Cleaner”

I just happened to mosey on over to Erin’s Blog today. Erin has a beautiful Weimeraner named Chloe. Every Wednesday Erin participates in a blog carnival called “Works For Me Wednesdays”.  Today Erin had the greatest tip for cleaning your dogs ears, and I just had to share it with all my bloggy friends.

I picked up a couple of containers with air tight seals and prepared a “batch” of ear cleaner for Jonesy, Sissy and Tinky. I also made an extra batch for my daughter’s dog Mama. I am so excited that I think Sissy is going to get a bath tonight with all the trimmings, including nail trim and ear cleaning. Jonesy and Tinky will get their baths tomorrow and Friday. See what I did, Erin! Thanks for the tip.

Go on over to Erin’s Blog and get her recipe and make yourself up a batch!

Super Squirrel and General Squirrel     

A lot has been happening in my back yard this last week. Super Squirrel and General Squirrel have set up headquarters and were secretly conspiring to march over to Rusty’s and take down his sign that says, “No Squirrels Allowed”.  My three Chihuahuas and I got into a huddle to try to figure out how to get these squirrels to give up and wave the white flag. Tinky my mean Chihuahua  says, “Let me at ’em. I will give them a shiner.”

Jonesy changed into his Ninja outfit and proceeded to go out in the back yard and face those squirrels…one on one. Eeeeeeyaaa….Bam…a chop in their knees.  Eeeeeya….Bam…a chop to their necks. Whock whock whock. And then….thud….thud.

Ninja Jonesy 
Those pesky squirrels have been defeated by Ninja Jonesy. They ran out of the yard never to return. And once again…Jonesy has saved the day!

I thought these were so funny, so I would like share them with you.  This is really vital information because if you have any of these cross breed dogs, you will know what to call them.

  • Pointer + Setter = Pointsetter, a great Christmas dog
  • Kerry Blue Terrier+ Skye Terrier = Blue Sky, a dog for visionaries
  • Pekingnese + Lhasa Apso = Peekasso, an abstract dog
  • Irish Water Spaniel + English Springer Spaniel = Irish Springer, a dog fresh and clean as a whistle
  • Labrador Retriever + Curly Coated Retriever = Lab Coat Retriever, the choice of research scientists
  • Newfoundland + Basset Hound = Newfound Asset Hound, a dog for financial advisors
  • Terrier + Bulldog = Terribull, a dog that makes awful mistakes
  • Bloodhound + Labrador = Blabador, a dog that barks incessantly
  • Malamute + Pointer = Moot Point, owned by…oh, well, it doesn’t matter anyway
  • Collie + Malamute = Commute, a dog that travels to work
  • Deerhound + Terrier = Derriere, a dog that’s true to the end
  • Bull Terrier + Shitzu = Bullshitz, a gregarious but unreliable breed

I pass Sissy off as a Chihuahua, but I think there may have been a “doggy in the wood pile” somewhere.  Maybe she is a “Chowhuahua“?
