Visiting at Mimi’s…

Today we went into the bigger town so our people could go to church and we could visit with Mom’s sister, Mimi’s, dogs… the pup’s half-sisters.

THEY took after their mother who was half Yorkie and half Chihuahua. We knew her as “Nasty Nikki.” She had a tiny body with a humongous ATTITUDE! Here is a pic that Mom drew of her for Mimi. She was very fat when she weighed 5 lbs. (WE never saw this smile... THAT was reserved for Mimi only!)

Stitch, BG & Dott’s dad, was two-timing with Nikki. Nikki had a breathing problem so Mimi was afraid to have her go under anesthesia to be spayed, so they were always VERY careful to watch when she was in heat and they still don’t know how it happened… (how/when she got out)… but she got really fat and after a while, they figured out that she was “with pup.” That was about 2 weeks before she had the girls.

Nikki took the rainbow bridge last year, and Mimi is glad that she has Dolly and Kisses now. Those two girls just LOVE their half-sister, my Dott, and will hardly leave her alone from the time she gets to Mimi’s house. They also greet me and brother, BG very exuberantly!

Dott says that, “After all, they ARE her little sisters, and SHOULD look up to her!”

Dolly took more after the Yorkshire Terrier side of Nikki, but she didn’t get her tail docked, so she has a long, swishy one.

Kisses, which Mom really likes and the feeling is mutual, is really tiny… around 4 lbs. She looks more like the Chihuahua side, and just has a few longer hairs around her eyebrows and ruff. She reminds my Mom, a little, of Coco the Princess,
another of our blogging friends.

We had a nice day with the girls and Mimi. We used to see them every weekday while Mom was working, but now we only see them on the weekends, so it was nice to visit for a while.

Sounds like a good visit - we were interested in hearing all about Nikki.
We have found that there are some small dogs who do have bad attitudes. Sometimes this can be found in small humans too!
Perhaps Nikki wanted to be a big dog!
We are glad to hear about the pups though - Dolly and Kisses sound like a very nice, positive ending to the story.
We expect Mimi still misses Nikki though - sounds like she was quite a character!

What a fun post. Looks like you guys had a great trip!

And....Coronado King DOES NOT look 23. You can tell he's had lots of TLC!!!

Tuffy looks as fit as a fiddle. My goodness! I don't know why I didn't see them before when I was here. The Post a Comment box was in just the right place this time!

I did leave a post on my blog about the show...It's called, What a Boy That Tango of Mine. I left you an email too.

We had a great day.

You must have been happy to see your pals again.

I have met some little dogs that are mean, but I really like my pal Aston and he only weighs about 10 pounds. So some little dogs are OK.

It is kind of funny that she got all fat accidentally. Oh well.
