I may have found out who I am!!! Well, I mean, I know who I AM, but I am not exactly clear on WHAT KIND OF DOG I am. I have always thought I am a chihuahua/???. For a while Mommy and Daddy thought I was a chihuahua/Italian greyhound. Ha. Here's a picture of an Italian greyhound, just so you can see how silly of an idea that is:

More recently they have thought that I am a chihuahua/some-kind-of-terrier. Maybe. Much more likely than an IG, I think.

But today, Mommy was following doggy bloggy links and she found this blog about dachsies. They just got a new foster who is a--get ready for this--a chiweenie! That's a chihuahua/dachshund mix! Don't you think Angel looks JUST LIKE ME?! Except for the color, I mean. Here is a picture of me for comparison:

This is a picture of me sitting side-saddle on my ramp while it is flat on the floor. I think you can see the bigness of my ears and the shortness of my legs in this picture. Plus, I'm really looooong, especially for a chihuahua. And we all know I have IVDD, which is totally a dachsie thing.

So what do you think, am a I chiweenie?

In other important news, I have received an award from my buddies Bijou and Banjo. They gave me the Honest Scrap Award. Here is what they told me about the award:

"When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to said person so everyone knows he or she is real. Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including bloggers who have no idea who you are because you don’t have 7 friends. Show the 7 random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with “Honest Weblog”. Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon. List at least ten honest things about yourself. Then, pass it on!"

Here is the award:

Thank you so much Bijou (and Banjo too)! I've been waaaay behind on blogs lately, so I don't know who has this award already. I'll have to think some more about who to pass it on to. This is always the hardest part for me. :)

Bye for now,
Poppy the Little Blonde Chihuahua (/Dachshund???)

Maybe you are part Rat Terrier! That would be cool. But even if you're not, I still like ya.

I hope you have fun doing the Honest Weblog Award thingy. I got lazy, so my mom did mine for me. BOL

Wags & wiggles,

My mom's nephew has a chiweenie and you definitely look alot like him. Even the color. If you look at our old, old post from May 2008 caled More Texas Cousins. Rebel is in the last 2 pictures. They're not great pictures cause he's WILD but you do look like him!

Hi Poppy

We just wanted you to know that Angel, your "missing link" chiwiennie cousin is being adopted. She goes to her furever home next weekend.

Our mom will give Angel's furever mom your blog address, so hopefully you two "cousins" can stay in touch.

Heidi Ho Ho, Valentin, Pogo and only 5 more sleeps as a foster, Angel the chiwiennie

You may be only partially chihuahua but you are 100 percent adorable. You're a sweetie, Poppy.
