Stinky Dinky Daisy Takes A Bath.

[Post by Dinky Daisy.] Spring is almost here and the sun is shining again. We Doggies here at Darling Dinky Dogs have been running circles around the garden. It's so much fun! We even got to sit in the Gazebo with Mom one day this week. It's been so long since we could do that. I didn't think Winter would ever end. I got a bit muddy the other day, and Mom had to give me a bath. She said I was Stinky Dinky Daisy! After the bath, it took her an hour and a half to comb me out. Of course, that was partly because I was chewing on the comb. When she was done, she had a pile of hair as big as me! So I guess I'd better stay away from the mud puddles for a while. Bark at ya later, Sweet Smelling Dinky Daisy. Woof!

Happy St. Patrick's Day To You All.

We here at Darling Dinky Dogs want to wish you all a Happy St. Patrick's Day! On March 17th, here in the USA, we can all be Irish for one day and dress up in green clothes covered with Shamrocks. Mom dressed us all up a couple of years ago and took our pictures in the garden. All five of us original dogs were dressed up this way, and each one of us has had our pictures Featured at Webshots for the Holiday. From top to bottom, we are: Pee-Wee a Maltese-Chihuahua, Sadie a Maltese, Kadie, Sadie's daughter, a Maltese, Genny-Poo a Long-Haired Chihuahua and her father Pepe, a Long-Haired AKC Chihuahua. We hope you all have a fun day. Erin-Go-Bark!

Pretty Pepe Is An AKC Long-Haired Chihuahua.

Pretty Pepe is now 11 years old. He was raised by a Dog Breeder that has Champion AKC Dogs. Pepe has the attitude and stance of a show dog, and if the breeder had a prettier dog in that litter I would be surprised. Perhaps Pepe was too tall. He must have been difficult to let go. I don't think I've ever seen a prettier Long-Haired Chihuahua, and I've looked at many photos and books about the breed. He's just a little love, intelligent, affectionate and keeps his position as top dog in our household. He's the father of Kadie, Pee-Wee and Genny-Poo. Genny resembles him the most, and Kadie resembled her mother, Sadie, who was a Maltese. Pee-Wee looks different than most Chihuahuas because his ears never stood up. Long-Haired Chihuahuas are a great breed, and I would recommend them to anyone who wants a pet for a small home. They aren't quiet though. Pepe likes to find the highest ground in the garden and yap yap yap his head off, until we put him back in the house. He just wants the rest of the neighborhood to know that a special dog lives here. It's too bad he never got the chance to earn the show ribbons to prove it. ~Carol Jean~

Snow Dogs...Sadie and Pepe.

Winter snow is beautiful, but we've all had enough of it here in the Mid-West. We've almost forgotten about warm days and flowers and green grass. But Mom says that soon, Spring will be here, and we'll be able to enjoy chasing each other around the Gazebo again. Come, Blessed Spring...
