Dog Toys Part 2

When I'm about to vacuum I walk through the house picking up dog toys scattered all around and put them into my chihuahua's toy box. While I'm vacuuming my chihuahua, Little Shannon quietly sits on her pillow, but soon as she sees that I'm finished she heads over to the toy box and one by one picks out the toys and scatters them all over the place again. I guess she's not much into tidiness.

Dogs For Rent

Rent a dog services are springing up in some countries including the US. Sounds weird but apparently it's becoming quite trendy to rent a dog for an evening, a weekend or while on vacation.

Hmm, I can see how some people might go for it, no vet bills to pay, no commitment to make and you get to have a different dog every weekend. To me this rent a dog thing sounds like pet sitting in reverse, instead of the dog's owner paying you to take care of poochie for a few hours, you pay them for walking the dog and picking up its poop. Nice biz.

Anyone want to rent a Chihuahua? Free bone included.

Chihuahua Watercolor Portrait

This was my first Chihuahua pet portrait commission, it's from a couple of years back but since this is a Chihuahua blog I thought I'd post it. The customer was so happy with it that she later commissioned a watercolor portrait of her cat.

I paint other people's pets but I can't seem to get around to painting my own dog. Is that weird or what? I recently began painting in acrylics and maybe finally I will paint Little Shannon (my dog). Examples of my portraits are at
