My Suprize Box

Friday was a good and relaxing day for me, and my chis...I didn't have to work, and they were glad that I got to spend the entire day at home with them......however, right in the middle of the day, while we were all taking our little naps, my chis saw the UPS man come up to the door.....barking was what woke me up.  Thank goodness for my little watch dogs....right?  The UPS man brought a box, and immediately, I knew what it was.  I was not expecting this package already, actually I thought it wouldn't come until next week.  I brought it in, tore it open and my little chis started wagging their tails and sniffing away...... it was my daughter's box that came from Navy boot camp.  She enlisted and went into boot camp just last week. They smelled her clothing and shoes, and looked at me, as if to say " where's sissy at"? I was sad, but at the same time, I was glad to get her things, and happy that my dogs were there to comfort me too.  She is going to be gone for several months before she can get the chance to come back home...but I know that once she steps back into the house, they will be happy to see her.

Chihuauhas Are Great Companions

Bella is soooo spoiled rotten. She has the best of all worlds....a window to look out of to see what's going on, and a nice warm blanket to hide underneath when she feels cold. Bella is a great source of comfort to me, and that's what is so wonderful about chihuahuas. Not only are they lap dogs, or at least ones who want to be near their owner, but they can comfort you in times of need....times when you are upset about something....and she is always there when I need her.  She's a picky little eater though, I must admit, and she likes some children (the older ones) but does NOT like younger children as much. She loves the granddaughter who was staying with us all summer (age 10) but does NOT like my granddaughter who lives out of state and comes to visit (age 5)...perhaps it's because the younger one is a little rough at trying to pick her up, or maybe she's used to one more than the other. Bella is nosy, loves her chew toys and thinks that all the toys in the house belong to her and not the other two chis. Bella is now one and a half years old and that is when most chihuahuas mature. She is tiny, very tiny, but weighs 4 pounds and of those 4 pounds, she is stocky and feels solid when picked up, very much UNLIKE my other chi that weighs nearly the same but is very dainy and fragile-feeling when picked up. Bella, Bella, Bella, what am I gonna do with you?  I will definetely need  lots of attention when my daughter (or as we call her, your sis) leaves for the Navy next hoo.
