Chiweenie update



Today is a hang out and writing day at our house.
His majesty is not happy with this arrangement - mainly the writing part. He wants all hands petting and adoring him - not wasting time typing on a computer. He has walked across the keyboard several times now to make his disgust known. He actually managed to turn the wireless connection off and it took me several minutes to figure out how to turn it back on (never a good sign when the dog is more tech savvy than the person.)




He's also gotten the whole house going by barking while charging back and forth on the couch, a pint size general rousing the troops. Of course, the troops aren't all that sharp or well trained, so that just resulted in a lot of running around and jumping.


 I took his majesty outside to cool down a little and he immediately started to charge down the street, perhaps determined to go find a house where someone would give him a more devoted level of attention.





Back inside he continued to try and rouse the rabble to mutiny.









Gracie finally responded by leaping up - and infuriating his majesty by standing on his throne. They are now both not helping me in my goal to update and post here today.










So many helpers...so little help.....  :-)

  1. He does look rather incensed in two of those pictures. Maybe he doesn't like his name. How about calling him Monsieur Napoleon Bonaparte?

    1. I think he likes being called "Sir."
      Even more important than his name though, is the attitude of the servant - and he does find the servant's attitude a little wanting, he has made that perfectly clear!

    1. Both Gracie and Chi Chi have many cat habits, including walking and perching on the back of furniture and using their paws to clean their faces...and let's not forget being demanding. (Sorry Cody - don't mean to imply all cats are demanding; just the ones that live here!)

    1. Yes, he's a hoot. I confess, as a big dog person I always thought, "I'll never live with a Chihuahua." Never say never!

      Chi Chi has the wonderful BIG attitude that is very similar to a terrier. He now spends his day sleeping on the couch and the evening ordering others around :-)

    1. Chihuahuas do get an unfair bad rap - I think in large part because some owners don't bother to train them or treat them like dogs. And they are very trainable - Chi Chi is proving to be a fast learner who is very comical. Complains bitterly when told "no" but immediately follows through on what he's told.
