My how she has grown! She loves to eat so much that she sleeps with her food bowl. We are trying to exercise her more and feed her less, because it really isn’t healthy for her to be this big. Unfortunately, I have broken my leg, so it will be 4 – 6 more weeks before I can walk with her.
Welcome Bambi, the newest member of our family. Bambi comes to us from the Capital Area Humane Society. She was rescued from the home of a Chihuahua hoarder. She wasn’t feeling well when we first got her, was very shy, and was a bit puny.
We believe she was kept in a cage for at least 10 months. She is quite shy and a bit intimidated by people. She has; however, adapted very well to our household. She is so sweet. She loves to cuddle and to play.

Bambi didn’t know how to jump or go up or down stairs when she first came home with us. Now, she is jumping and running around like a pro. She loves playing in the back yard the most, and she will often sunbathe on our deck. She is a wonderful, loved member of our family.
We missed the Chihuahua parade in Missouri. I wish we had known about it, because we could have gone. We have some wonderful costumes we could have worn, too. Oh well.
The event raised $2,500 for The Pet Connection, a no-kill shelter. There are a lot of Chihuahuas in shelters. We were overbred because we’re so awesome and got so famous. But, now, not enough homes want us. Why would someone not want a wonderful Chihuahua?
Of course we had to stop by the Roswell UFO museum while we were in New Mexico. Did you know they allow dogs? I think that is just wonderful! I mean, dogs are interested in UFOs, too, especially when the museum gives out free dog biscuits!
My mommy carried me most of the time in the museum because she didn’t want me to get under anyone’s feet and trip them by accident. I love being held and carried.
Who is this cute girl holding me? And who are those strange beings behind her? I hope we don’t get abducted!
My family went to visit Carlsbad Caverns on our drive across the country. The caverns are located in the Chihuahua desert, so it was sort of like a homecoming for me. I thought it was too hot, though. Can’t you see me panting? The caverns have a kennel for doggies, so I didn’t get to go into the cavern. That’s OK. I would have probably been scared.
Me and Lola in the Chihuahua Desert!
As you can see, the desert was on fire about 3 weeks before we arrived. Everything was black and burned to a crisp. It was still beautiful, though.
