Check out our Christmas pictures!

We all look so pooped because we stayed up late waiting for Santa! 

Here are the treats we left for Santa and his reindeer:
an ensaymada and a glass of milk for Santa and carrots, apples, and leafy greens for the reindeer (that's what the internet says they like).

All those presents aren't for us, silly! Just most of them. Hahaha!

Stay tuned for a report for all the loot we got!

Hope you all had a great holiday!


It's my very first double rainbow!! 
But I didn't get quite as excited as this guy!   

Other Animals Are Cute Too

This baby monkey and baby boar have become the best of friends at Fukuchiyama City Zoo in Kyoto.  They're both orphans and have been at the zoo since June.  Heartwarming!  I hope they stay friends forever.

Baby Iggy

Having Chiquitin around and watching him grow every day reminded me of how fast Iggy went from puppy to [obnoxious] boy.  So I dug up some old pics and I thought I'd try to embarrass him by sharing some of his baby pics, heehee...

Iggy the first day we brought him home.  He was so small his wee-wee touched the ground and we couldn't tell if he was peeing!

I guess he's kinda handsome.

Bay Cities Deli

Had a nice lunch on the patio at Bay Cities.   The crowds are always unbearable here and ten bucks for a sammie seems steep, but one bite of the Don Lorenzo and it's all worth it.  And they have a nice doggie-friendly patio!

Left to right:  The Godmother, The Spaniard, and my faves, The Don Lorenzo. 

Beauty Parlor

Here are some pics from my recent trip to the Beauty Parlor...

This bulldog was just hilarious.  He just made himself at home!

This little pup was so friendly, and just a touch excited, heehee lol.

This is me with my stylist, Victoria.  She's the absolute best!

I Heart Shopping

The air is crisp, the days are shorter...Fall is upon us!  Which means that the new Winter/Fall lines are out in the stores, yay!  So much cute stuff!  I know I have to take it easy this season, you know, because of the recession yada yada, but oh how I love bundling up in cozy sweaters and jackets!  And yes, I do already have a well-stocked winter wardrobe, but still....

So many new styles!  Must resist!  Aah!

Check out this cute top I'm thinking of getting for Chiquis.


I wanted to give Davis a proper introduction in her very own post.  As I mentioned in the Halloween post, Cousin Davis is Uncle Salomon's doggie that's visiting us for a while.  We're so happy to have her here with us--we haven't seen her since last Christmas!  She's a sweetheart through and through and fits right in with us.  She's very well-behaved, generous (she lets you have first dibs on all her food), mellow (unless you're a stranger at the door, then she's Super Miss Guard Dog) and has a calming influence on all of us.  She's so perfect, it's kind of annoying, hahaha.

Here she is, patiently allowing Chiqui to nibble her ear!  She dotes on him so!
Welcome, Davis!

Yummy Yum Yum

Check out the lovely Steak Frites from Church and State Bistro that I enjoyed recently:

I know, I know, ordering Steak Frites at a French bistro is so cliché, but it's a classic for a reason!  And relax, everyone--I didn't have the fries!  I know dogs aren't supposed to eat fried food!  And besides, I'm cutting back on my carbs.   ;)

Halloween 2010

Sorry for the delay, folks!  Without further ado, our Halloween pics....

 Iggy was a Chicken...

 Black Mambas was Tinkerbell...

I was a Princess, of course!  

And, introducing....our cousin Davis!  She is Uncle Salomon's baby and she's visiting us for a while.
She was a Pumpkin!

Happy Voting Day!

Hi, Chickadees!  How was your weekend?  Mine was super fun and busy!  I bet you're wondering what we dressed up as for Halloween.  Check back soon for our pics.  I'll post them asap.

Hope you all voted today!  Hooray for Democracy!

Munchkin in my bed

Look who's taken a liking to my's Chiquitín!

 Silly Chiquis!  I don't blame him, it IS the comfiest, coziest, softest little bed.  Way better than his training crate.

More Chiqui Baby

Here are more pics of the baby.  He's more of an attention hog than I am!!

We wanna get as many pics of him as we can before he stops being cute, lol!

Chillin' with Jess and Bryant

Auntie Jess and her gentleman friend Bryant came over the other night to hang out with us doggy-dogs.  We like when they come over 'cause they are fun.  They really love us, you can tell:

It's fun when Bryant cuddles because he coos at you in a Scooby-Doo voice as he scratches your belly and makes you feel like you're the only dog in the room!  (Notice I'm covering up my lady bits?  Always a lady, wink.)

Auntie Jess with her NEW favorite, Chiquitín [sarcastic voice].
Then Bryant treated me us to a private concert.

 Ahhh. Nice end to a relaxing night!
Come back soon, Auntie Jess and Bryant!

Back by Popular Demand

Got lots of requests for more of this little guy on the blog, so I'm begrudgingly obliging.  He's cute and all, but I'm feeling like 2nd fiddle these days.  It's always Chiqui this and Chiqui that. 

In case you were wondering about his size, he's not too much taller than a Coke can.  He's waaaay small, like barely a pound I think.  Just a teeny little nose nudge and he goes flying!  But he has grown so much these last two weeks; it's incredible.

Costume Shopping

Here are some pics from some Halloween costume shopping I did the other day.  I think I still have some shopping to do....

I dunno about the first one--I wanted a Princess costume, you know, but this one seems a little too "Slutty Princess."  And the Pumpkin costume is cute but a little on the nose, no?  What do you guys think?
