On top of Old Pinky...

Anyone that knows me knows I like nothing more than climbing up a mountain and staking my claim to the territory and looking out at the view...



It's no different with climbing humans.

Papi left the house early this morning and said he'd be back soon with a big surprise... I don't know what could beat yesterday...

but...

I have an abuela and an abuelo!!! i just met them for the first time1 They are Papi's parents.

WOW!

I though Papi was old! It's amazing they have all white hair... like Santa Claus... hmmmmmmm

They are here for two weeks and I know I'll get more belly rubs than EVER before! Thank you Santa for giving me such a grrrrreat human family!

The same but different




One year apart.

A Dog Gone Great Year

You cannot imagine just how amazing a year I've had. Especially when you see that it was all in a loving home with Papi S.

It was just one year ago that I was rescued from a nasty Pully Mill and then first Fostered and then Adopted... by two Papis. Now though and for many months I am with only Papi s. It's sad, but like Papi says, "Everything for a reason. We have each other and that's enough"

Yesterday was amazing. Papi had a party for me. He let me play fetch ALL DAY LONG! and took advantage of that from 8:20 am til 11:00 pm! SI!

Senor Pinky came over and we had a big meal and I got LOTS of presents!!! It was like Christmas and my birthday all rolled into one. SO MANY YUMMY SNACKS! a couple new squeaky toys... a Piggie and a little blue bear. Senor Pinky gave me the NICEST sweater yet! even if it seems I don't like it, I really do! And Papi also got me my First movie! Beverly Hills Chihuahua. Sure I've seen it before, but now I can watch it again and again...

It was a great day! Today was MY DogDay!

Thank you Papi. Thank you Senor Pinky. I love you both.

I had some extra special company lastnight, into today. My bestest friends in the whole wide world Chachi and Flea came over for a SLUMBER PART!... Doggie Style… and even better still Señor Pinky came too!


We had SO MUCH FUN! Especially running up and down the hall and just chillin’ on the big blue sofa with Papi and Señor Pinky… Sleepin’ and playin’ and watching funny Christmas movies… and eatin’ and sleepin’…

This was all in prep for this Christmas. It’s gonna be AMAZING! Chachi and Flea are gonna stay with us for Christmas cause their parents will be away in Timmins… and cooler still is I will be meeting my Grand Parents for the first time! Can’t wait for Christmas!

The night of a Million Doggie Heros

OK, so maybe not a Million... but Lots and Lots anyway.

Papi is off to a big charity fund raiser tonight and ALL their proceeds go to help the fight against Puppy Mills here in Québec. He's gonna see Nanna Nat and Uncle Scott and Grand Nanna Donna and also a friend of his from back in Halifax... Lucy Decoutere who's an actress on TV and the movies! (Papi knows all the cool people!)

I hope they raise a lot of money to shut down those evil places!

Give this dog a bone!

If I didn't have the fantastic Papi I DO have, this is the one I would hope to have...

A crippled Chihuahua Papi escorting his Baby Momma and their puppies to an emergency dog shelter after being abandoned on the side of a highway in Texas.

Papi and I read the story and cried a little... it's sad but happy too. I hope they all find as great a home as I have.

Happy Thanksgiving!

So this is a new one, but I can tell you I am most thankful to my Papi's: Papi D and Papi S.

I don't really get to see Papi D much anymore but some day I hope he visits and I hope to visit him some time soon too.


HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Bone home Sweet Bone home

Hola amigos.

Sorry for the lack of posts, but well I've been trying to be good and help Papi S as much as I can with our move and the set up of our new Casa.

It's finally complete! ARIBA! ARIBA!

Papi S just posted some pics of the place on his blog, but you and me know this place is all about ME!

Papi S was really good to me and had fire special paintings made of me... they are called portraits... and there's now one in every room of our new home... all at Doggie Eye Level so that I can see them and when I have company they can see them as well!

Papi S took some pics so that I can show you. I hope you like...

Footballs and Wolves and Squirrels... OH MY!

Yesterday Papi S. took me out for a loooooong walk. We went way way way up the street to Pack Lafontaine! It's HUGE! I mean REALY REALLY HUGE!

We walked around a bit, and even past a Doggie Park, but it was full of big dumb looking dogs and I really could not have bothered. All cave Dogs if you ask me... digging in dirt and chewing on dear tree limbs... barbaric!

So we went over to a nice shady spot and sat down to watch some guys play this thing called 'football' It's funny cause it seems a lot like the way I play 'fetch' with the Papis... You throw a thing... Papi said it was a ball... but he doesn't know ... balls are round! The someone else catches and runs with it and then is chased by someone else trying to get it back to throw again... heh! That is sooo what I do! I run with my toy and make them come and get it from me! hehehe


Papi said I'm kind of related to the humans playing the game because they are called Les Loups, which is french for The Wolves... and well dogs are related to wolves... So I guess it makes sense they like to play like I do!

And every once in a while these weird fluffy things Papi calls Squirrels would come over to visit us, but every time I went to say hello, they would run away. Squirrels are just stupid I think!

We kept watching the game, til it was over then we went to say hello to the Wolves. Papi S knows one of them and met some more... but they were all just looking at me, trying to pet me and stuff... Funny, you wouldn't think a pack of wolves would be so nice.

It was a real fun day at the park and I hope we can go again real soon... I even promise to let Papi take better pictures of me.

I'm still here

Sorry I have not blogged much lately, but stuff has been going on at the house that makes me sad. My Papis are going to not be living together soon any more, and that gives me a big sad. Papi S told me that it's not easy, but that sometimes Papis move apart because even though they still like each other, it's not enough. I'm not sure what that realy means because I love them both so very much I don't know why it's different... but Papi S says this is for the better of us all and so I will believe him.

Papi S has been working very hard lately on our new place. He says I will love it... I am sure I will, I just hope all of my friends know to visit me and Papi S there and continue to visit Papi D too. And maybe some times Papi D might take care of me if Papi S has to go away. That would be nice. Sure would!

So I am still here, just a little sad is all...

Santi's Big Adventure!

Day's don't get much bigger than this!

We woke up today and cleaned up after Papi D's party last night. Then we went for a walk in the neighbourhood. Then we had brunch on the Terrasse at Food (the Papis like to eat there alot!) And then after that another walk in the neighbourhood!

That would have been enough for a great day but that was just the start!

THEN we took a ride on the Metro. This was VERY exciting. My first ride in a subway... EVER! Wow! So many people. So many sounds! I was a little scared at first but Papi S held me tight and I was fine!

Once we got out I though, that's got to be it, for sure; but no... THEN we got on a bus! MY FIRST BUS RIDE EVER! Crazy huh? So many new things! I don't think I liked the bus as much tho, cause there were more people, it moved slow, it was hot and there were some really smelly people on the bus! I know my Papi's were kinda grossed out, but the have NOOOOOOOO idea... their sense of smell is so weak... trust me that one guy in the dragon shirt... yeesh! I don't even want to know...

When we finally got off the bus, I didn't have any idea where I was... I've never seen so much green in all my life! Grass. Bushes. Trees! So many trees to sniff... so little time!

We were up on the mountain in the middle of Montréal, called Mount Royal (I don't think that's a coincidence...) and there, we walked and walked and walked and walked and walked and walked and walked! There were a lot of other doggies... but Papi D said I was the cutest (and Papi S agreed!)

OH! and I almost forgot... and the whole time my human cousin from France, Sacha was with us. Actually he's been here since Tuesday. He came all the way from France to visit us for a few weeks! He's really really nice and I love him but I can't help be a little shy and nervous some times because he's SOOOO tall! Taller than even Papi S. !!!

After all the walking we got to a huge look-out over the city, so we took a few pictures...

Me and Papi S...


Me and Papi D...


Cousin Sacha Papi D and me...


After Papi D and Sacha had an ice cream, we walked down the mountain... but there were just too many stairs so Papi S carried me. It was good to because my dogs were barking! heh heh.

Once we got off the mountain we walked some more but I was too tired so again Papi S came to my rescue and he carried me for about 15 minutes. But after a little bit I felt better and walked the rest of the way home from Pine Avenue... that's a LONG WAY for a Chihuahua.

I don't think I've ever walked as much in my life as we did today!

Now I'm just gonna have a little nap with Papi S on the big red sofa cause we deserve it!

A Special Day

¡Feliz Cumpleaños Papi D!


Dont have too many Margaritas!
