bring your chihuahua puppy to work day

A coworker brought in her chihuahua puppy into work on Wednesday. She named the dog 'Tyson' after hot model Tyson Beckford. Too cute for words:
tyson and jimbo
A full headlock is the best way to subdue chihuahua.
tyson the chihuahua
Apparently these creatures were bred to hound black bears in the hills of the Chihuahua mountains of Mexico. The high surface-to-body ratio of the dogs guaranteed that the bears would burn out from the heat before the pack of chihuahua dogs would.

Yee-haw! I was invited out to my buddy Steve's farm out in West Virginia again. I am taking off tomorrow to go to the land where bulldogs swim free, cows stare blankly, dreamy neighbors catch fish, and granny makes tranny bass sushi. It should be fun and an already-needed chance to get away.

Go on Gurl. Dunner usually says it better than I can. Chalk another one up for the headstrong from Western Wisconsin.

Howabout that South Park episode last night? I love South Park because they tread where others won't go, and did again last night when Kenny dies while playing his 'PSP' game "Heaven vs. Hell." Turns out the game was part of God's plan to train souls on Earth to ultimately command the legions of Heaven when Hell's army of darkness assaults the gates. But the well-meaning doctors back on Earth revive Kenny after 24 hours of mortality, leaving Kenny as a vegetative soul-trapping corpse, thus robbing Heaven of it's newest general. Controversy ensues regarding Kenny's feeding tube, with Cartman as Kenny's advocate for a merciful death.

Sometimes I lay in bed late at night and listen for the cruel howls of the Chihuahua pack, as they track down and tree members of Tucson's bear community. Yesterday morning I found Patrick in my orange tree, slightly disheveled.

Yeah, they're all cute, sweet and innocent when they're puppies. THEN they grow up to be a shivering mess of a dog that require so much fricken' attention it's sickening. Oh and they bite.

Yeah what a damn good (and so relevant!) episode they created last night... loved how it was all connected, the PSP, feeding tube, and winning the statue of Keanu Reeves! :o)

Tyson is cute. Our neighbor has two chihuahuas and they are both cool dogs. No biting, no shivering. Mark, just needs to let go............. ;-)

Have fun in WVA! Used to love visiting there, espeically Dolly Sods Wilderness area and New River Gorge.

And I loved the fact that Cartman was Kenny's advocate because they were BFF's (Best Friends Forever). The South Park gang did a great job of capture a lot of the issues surrounding the whole Florida mess. I am constantly impressed with the timeliness of that show!

Did you see the plastic surgery episode a couple of weeks ago? "Where are the dolphin restrooms?" Damn, they are funny!

I used to know a woman who bred chiuahuas for a living after coming to this country as a refugee in WWII (talk about a stange twist of fortune). Apparently, well bred, they can be very calm, gentle, and loving animals... but really good breeding is essential. Oh and in the case of hers can live to be twenty some years old, arthritic, and completely blind.

My grandma has a pair of glasses just like that!

Don't hurt me!

I think the bigger one's definitely cuter.

What is the homo equivalent of babe magnet? Apparently a shave and a cute pet is all it takes.

Posted by: First mom at April 1, 2005 2:26 PM

LOL! Ma, you're KILLIN' ME!! A shave and a cute pet would be considered a "boy magnet" by the homos.
