Mommy has been feeling guilty that I have to spend so much time doing nothing, so she bought me some presents! Four presents!
First, she ordered me a new collar. I kept getting my dew claw caught in the tag ring on my old one, so she wanted to get one of those special collars with my name and phone number embroidered on it. She ordered it from Dog Collar World. They have soooo many colors to choose from! We chose orange and white gingham with black embroidery thread. It came to our house in only a few days! Here is what it looks like:
I am a little bit sleepy in this picture, which is why I am rubbing my eyes. But it's a pretty good picture of my new collar, don't you think? My name is on one side and my phone number is on the other side. And we attached my bell, too. AND it's still a breakaway kitty collar, so it's extra safe. Although the website said it's a 10 pound breakaway...but I only weigh 8 1/2 pounds ...hmmm. I've never gotten caught on anything before, so it's probably okay.
At the grocery store yesterday Mommy bought me TWO MORE PRESENTS! She got me this thing that looks like a toy, but she insists that it is Not-A-Toy, but rather a little buckwheat heating pad. You can judge for yourself--do you think it looks like a toy?
It's filled with buckwheat and you can microwave it and it gets all warm and toasty. They're called "Whoopsies." I think that name is kind of funny. But no matter what it's called, it looks like a toy to me!
The other thing she got me at the store was some wheatgrass! I love to eat grass, and I haven't been able to walk around in the backyard or on walks to get my recommended daily intake of grass, so she bought me some organic grass of my very own! We used to get this for my sister Clover, but we haven't had it since she died almost exactly six months ago. :(
Num num, I love grass!
The fourth and final present isn't exactly for me, but it's me-themed, which is almost just as good. At the Garlic Festival over the weekend Mommy and Daddy got some yard art! Look:
This is the me-themed one. It's a welcome chihuahua! Mommy's only complaint about it is that she wishes it had paw prints instead of bones. Bones are so morbid, but they are sometimes hard to avoid on doggy stuff. The artist we bought this from also had ones that said "Protected by Chihuahua Security Co." Those were pretty funny too!
We also got an angel kitty for my sister Clover, who is at the Rainbow Bridge. I think we will put this one in the sunshine near the vegetable garden.
I hope everyone else had a great weekend too!
Bye for now,

This is just an extra picture for your viewing pleasure. Mommy calls this one "So Close, Yet So Far Away."
