My new roommate is a little Chihuahua-Dachshund. You might say she is a Chi-weenie! She kind of looks like a miniature Golden Retriever, but much, much smaller. She's only 7 1/2 pounds--a pocket Golden, if you will. It was a rough go at first--getting used to having a dog around. But we have gotten in to a nice little routine.
Annabelle is a crazy girl. She is perfectly content to sit on the couch and nap while I grade papers or watch TV. (Like she is doing now.) But when she gets outside, watch out. Especially if you are a bird or a squirrel. She really wishes she wasn't on a leash so she could go after all those dang squirrels in the park. She even chases birds while they are flying overhead. I don't know how exactly she expects to catch birds in midair, but she sure does try.

Here are some pictures especially for my niece and nephew. It will be so fun at Christmas when you can play with Annabelle!

Ohhh Annabelle! The kids will have fun with her at Christmas. When are you coming by the way??

Yeah when will you be there? I assume your school is out around the 18th?
Any way yes, the kids are going to love playing with her since they are obsessed with playing "dogs/cats" and crawl around my house daily acting like cats and dogs. I showed them these pics and they loved her!
I'm going to be honest here and tell you she is surprisingly cute. I never thought chihuahua's were very cute but she is actually cute. So there ya go, I think she is cute :)

Hopefully this Christmas there will not be quite so much snow or Annabelle will be lost the first time she goes out. What ever happened to the blogs about your amazing trip this summer? Too amazing for words, perhaps?
