My Chihuahua is a….

Meet Milo.  He is part Chihuahua.  We aren’t sure what the other part is….there are many possibilities….cat…goat…Stitch…or maybe ninja warrior….

I was sitting on the floor, listening to my son, when suddenly Milo ran at me. He jumped, his two back paws hit me in the chest, knocking me off balance.  Then he turned and ran away.

My Chihuahua is a ninja!


If you are a mom, you know that there is no such thing as privacy while using the toilet until your kids get to elementary school age.  (For the most part…)  My son, now ten years old, has let me have my privacy in the bathroom for years.

I honestly forgot what it was like…and then we got Milo…

Now, if I don’t close the door all of the way a tiny wet nose nudges the door open.  And if I do shut it all the way?  Scratching at the door…




The POWER struggle is real with this one!

This little guy is smart!  I love the new member of our family and boy does he have personality!

Milo learned sit quickly, maybe he sort of knew it already?  I’m not sure.  He is two years old and we just adopted him.  But, with sit mastered I tried to move on to lay…

I wasn’t going to give him the treat unless he followed the directions.  He wasn’t happy that I wasn’t giving him the treat, possibly unsure of what I was asking.  So, after a minute or so, Milo decided he was done.

Milo turned away from me and meandered over to his food bowl and started eating.  The same food bowl that he hadn’t touched all morning.  (He is still adjusting and doesn’t eat much, yet.)

He picked up one piece of the kibble in his mouth.  Then, as he chomped down, turned his head slightly to look at me.  He continued this over and over again, keeping his eye on me to make sure I was paying attention.  Milo needed to prove he didn’t need the treat from me!

Well, two can play that game, my little one.  I put the treat back and walked away.  But, not before cracking up at this little guy’s big attitude.  😀

♥ We have a dog!  A sweet two year old Chihuahua mix named Milo!

♥  I found Milo online and Troy and I went to meet him on Monday.  We waited in the visiting room and one of the staff at the shelter brought in Milo.  The staff member said it might take him a little bit to warm up to new people, but Milo jumped straight up to the bench.  He climbed on Troy’s lap and started licking his face.  It was love!

♥  I created writers this past year!  I miss them like crazy, but I love the emails I have been getting!  (Pictures were included with each email/story!)
