Let's Talk Favorites

¡Hola Amigas!

I'm Chica.

Aren't the interwebz the best invention ever?

I mean, how else could I talk to you? You're human. I'm a Chihuahua.

I belong to Maxie. She's been my human since I was a puppy. She lets me cuddle in her lap. Maxie has a soft lap. And its warm. Do you like laps? Laps are my favorite thing.

Unless I have a chew. Or a squeaky toy. Or a Milk-Bone.

Or the times we go for walks. I love walks. Do you like walks? Walks are my favorite thing, too.

Oh. Carol isn't here. She left this note:

Hey, everyone!
Today I'm visiting Hart Johnson at Confessions of a Watery Tart. AKA Alyse Carlson, author of The Azalea Assault. She's interviewing me, and you know her. You may learn something you would never have guessed about me. One more thing, please. I'm dogsitting Chica, Maxie's Chihuahua. She's a feisty little thing, so don't let her get into any trouble while I'm out. I'll see you Friday. Thanks.

Uh-oh. Squirrel!

Chica sounds adorable.
Linda Kage said…
Hey Chica!! My husband likes to lay his head on my lap so I can scratch his head. I have a feeling you two would get along great! I loved your role in the story.

Now, go get that squirrel! Get 'em!
Carol Kilgore said…
Teresa - I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Julie - LOL, some days I feel just like I'm buzzing from flower to flower. Hope I'm spreading enough pollen!

Medeia - I loved writing Chica and Maxie.

Linda - I had to jump in for Chica. She was distracted by the squirrel. Then it was birds. The neighbor's cat came out, and that caused a huge ruckus. Now she's napping.

Does this dog speak with an accent, I wonder...
Already visited Hart this morning!
nutschell said…
great to meet you Chica! hopping over to check out that interview :)
Carol Kilgore said…
CarrieBoo - You'll have to ask her. She woke up, went outside, and now she's curled up again. Her little paws were moving earlier, so I guess she's chasing that squirrel again in her dreams.

Alex - Gotcha!

Nutschell - Chica says hi.
:) Adorable post. I love dog-sitting. Mostly because my last dog was such a grump (I loved him anyway), it's nice to have happy dogs around!

Carol Kilgore said…
Bethany - Laughing about a grumpy dog. I've known some of those.

CATachresis - Austin is probably bigger than may Chihuahuas! Thanks for downloading! Enjoy :)

Some Chihuahuas I know are real skittish dogs but lots I know are super friendly.
Carol Kilgore said…
Lynda - cool :)

Michelle - You must have spotted a squirrel :)

Clarissa - My sister had one of the skittish ones for a while.
Awh,Chica sounds like a character.
I had a lovely chihuahua called Tansy she lived into her 17th year.

Off to check out the interview.
Shelley Munro said…
Thank goodness we don't have squirrels in New Zealand. Our puppy would luv squirrels!
Carol Kilgore said…
Madeleine - Awww...Tansy sounds like a sweetheart.

Shelley - No squirrels. Amazing. They are everywhere here. You have the bird I saw on your blog that we don't have. I'm sure there are other things, too. New Zealand and Australia are on my wish list.
Very creative! But all I can think of is Taco Bell for some reason...
Carol Kilgore said…
Milo - LOL. Yo quiero Taco Bell!
