The Importance of Being a Chihuahua!


The Card Conundrum

I was invited to my friend Nikita’s first birthday pawty and decided to make her a special card! The only problem was that without opposable thumbs, getting myself glued to the card was barely inevitable! But just in case you’re wondering, I managed to stay detached! Phew!

Getting ready for the pawty is always lots of work: Mummy does her makeup, chooses her outfit carefully, and me, well I just turn up all fluffy and handsome 😉 Especially with a suntan, who could resist?

You can take the man out of the country, but you can’t take the ball chasing out of the Schnauzer!

We all met in the park, including our buddy Barnaby, the Schnauzer. Barnaby does try to strut his inner Chihuahua but he can’t resist acting like a… well… how can I say it… dog! (In case you’re not sure, Chihuahuas are not classified as simply dogs, we are Chiwawas!)

Look at our tall shadows! Chihuahua long legs!

We were causing quite a bit of attention! A stranger stopped and asked if she could take a picture of us and post it on her Facebook page! You see, this is how fame starts apparently…Chihuahua-tastic!

It was quite chilly (excuse the pun) in the park and we were all feeling peckish, so we headed to trendy Farmacy on Westbourne Grove. I could already see the hostess’ face, dreading the dog invasion of her restaurant! But as we were mostly (very well behaved, we hardly bark, snap or growl except for when we do!) Chihuahuas, the restaurant welcomed us! (Do you see the importance of being small and cute now?)

I studied the menu over and over but couldn’t find the chicken, so I asked Mummy where it was hiding. She said this is vegan cuisine (you see, Mummy likes vegetables…a lot…me, I’m more of an animal lover…)

Chihuahuas love selfies! Mummy says veggie-cheese! I say chicken!

Psst I’ll tell you a little secret. Some big celebrities were having a private party in the special room! The manager showed it to me once the guests had left. Doesn’t it look smashing? Look, they’ve even offered me a Margarita! (Well, I was kindly informed that it’s not a good idea for Chihuahuas to drink cocktails as as their inner dog might come out, so I will pass it on…)

Chilling in my Chilli-Bag! This is the best way to keep me out of trouble! Ankles of passersby, you are safe now!
