Dog figurines

My brother bought me this Chihuahua figurine. It's made by a UK company called Arora Design, part of their Little Paws collection of dog breed figurines that have sort of a cartoon look to them.

Supposedly the figurines are hot selling items but I couldn't find much about them on the internet, they are however sold on Ebay. Something that's unique about them is you get to send away for a free personalized metal dog tag that is then attached to the figurine. I'm still waiting to get mine, it's going to say "SHANNON"

Chihuahua Photo

Not much to say so I thought I'd post a photo and relate an amusing little tidbit.

We have this old stereo in the living room and when my 4 and a half pound Chihuahua walks by it, it rattles. By the sound of it you'd think that an elephant was passing through.

Dog Toys

My Chihuahua Shannon has a new toy - a little stuffed cow. She took to her little stuffed cow like a duck takes to water. I guess that's because her favorite things to play with are small stuffed animals.

She can pick her toys out by name, which everyone thinks is pretty cool. It amazes me how much dogs can come to understand just by talking to them using the same words for the same actions. We call the little cow "Moo Moo" and to my surprise within minutes Shannon was able to pick "Moo Moo" out from among her other toys.

Yup, dogs are smart alright, my chihuahua can learn the name of her toy within minutes but when it comes to learning how to pick her toys up and put them back into the toy box she's like "huh?" Go figure.
