My problem: I want
all the senior Chihuahuas
at the shelter. Help!
Pockets full of dog
treats make me the popular
neighbor on my street.
Max barks like crazy.
Silly boy! But then he’s a
Luna, sweet Pittie
mix, loves to see me because
I’m the “Treat Lady.”
King, the Frenchie pup
is missing. I bought a leash
in case I see him.
Can my Chihuahua
have too many cute outfits?
Not! (Are you kidding?)
In PetSmart I find
“Perfect Digestion” dog food.
Dear God, let this work.
The dog toy aisle at
PetSmart. It’s my crack. (Try to
resist. Try.) I can’t.
Such cute sweaters and
harnesses at PetSmart. I
want. I want. (Resist!)
Hazel, my senior
Chihuahua, loves PetSmart and
shopping. That’s my girl!
Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.
