My recipe? Look like I am working out so Mom will let me eat the giant #chocolatechipcookie she made. (Hee hee hee!)

Mmm. A giant, dairy free, gluten free, soy free, corn free, chocolate chip cookie. (My mom is a bit obsessive about E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G.)

 

 

“Doctor, Doctor” – Charlee Visits a Therapist on #ThrowbackThursday

Doctor Doctor

I Don’t Know Why I Bark

Doctor: What makes you bark at your neighbor’s Chihuahuas?

Charlee: I don’t know. It must be a reflex.

Doctor: How does it make you feel to see the Chihuahuas?

Charlee: Irritated.

Doctor: Why do you think you feel irritated?

Charlee: Well, first of all, they wear bandanas all summer and silly kilt-type jackets all winter.

Doctor: Why does this irritate you?

Charlee: Maybe because they seem so prissy. And don’t forget, they start it all – the barking, I mean. They taunt me.

Doctor: How do you think the neighbors feel when the barking wakes them up?

Charlee: Mmm, probably not exactly thrilled.

Doctor: What is your goal in barking? What is it you feel you are accomplishing by barking?

Charlee: They need to know how silly they look wearing scarves. They are male Chihuahuas after all.

Doctor: Do you think perhaps you may be suppressing feelings of attraction?

Charlee: Boys wearing girls’ accessories? Absolutely not.

Doctor: Wasn’t your sister, Bandit, (may she rest in peace) part Chihuahua?

Charlee: She was. But my neighbors are nothing like Bandit. Bandit wore a denim visor.

Doctor: Have you been spayed?

Charlee: I am 10 years old. Is this question even relevant?

Doctor: How old were you when you were spayed?

Charlee: Is this a HIPAA violation? How much is my mom paying you? I think our time is up now. I gotta go potty.

Charlee’s #WellnessWednesday Tip

Poultry-Flavored Toothpaste Is My Personal Favorite

Have you seen the new TV commercial where the dog with bad breath is ostracized by his friends? My tip for #WellnessWednesday is to remind everyone to brush and floss daily after meals and before bedtime. And, if you don’t like mint or bubble gum toothpaste, I highly recommend the poultry. Cheers to your health!

So, I Kinda Pottied at My Mom’s Work

(I Just AWESOMED All Over the Place!)

It happened last July right outside her office door. It was a LONG way to the 115-degrees-Fahrenheit, pet relief area. (Remember, this is Arizona, and I had to go really badly.) So, I just squatted and pottied on the rug. Right? Oh, what a relief it was! And truly, according to my nose, other dogs had pottied there in the past. It was no big deal. I got scolded, of course. But, it was worth it.

Dear Santa, Naughty or Nice?

What?

I found my darling Charlee’s (RIP) letter to Santa in her box of unpublished blog notes.

“Dear Santa, My mom said it was naughty for me to take my chew toy outside when I go duppy. But, I have to admit, I found it rather nice. Your call, Charlee”

 

 

Charlee’s Two Front Christmas Teeth

Ith my gap notithable?

We all have heard the song “All I Want for Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth.” Well, my darling Charlee (RIP), being the Scottsdale dog she was, wanted dental implants this Christmas to ensure that her new teeth would stay in place without slipping when she barked at the neighbor Chihuahuas. I sure miss that funny girl (so do the neighbor Chihuahuas).
