Where have you been?

I have been wondering where all of my Doggie Blog Friends have been. My Babs has been really really naughty by not keeping up with MY BLOG! Yes, I now am taking over ownership as she is a slacker. Just because she gets a new job, goes back to class, AND takes advantage of the nice weather...it doesn't mean that I am anyless important. I am ChaCHi and I am the MOST IMPORTANT...
Hi ALL! I am sorry we haven't been keeping up with my blog but I do have some VERY exciting news. Seems as if Babs' friend is going to adopt my half brother HERMAN! Yes...he is coming all the way from Texas to live with Gail and Kevin. I think they are going to change his name to NACHO. I bet he will like CHEESE like MEEEE! I can't wait to meet him. I think Babs' sister Karie is bringing him back on the 5th from DALLAS. I will keep you all posted!

It's PJ time!

Oh doggies...I just thought I would tell you about my night. Anna said that I was "stinky" but I really don't know how that is possible. She decided I needed a shampooch and conditioner. She poured me a bath and used "swanky dog" soap. It was delightful. I loved my bath. But then, my enjoyable night took a sudden turn as I saw her looking at the pile of dog clothes. She found these jammies and I think they are slightly rediculous. I mean, penguins in July? Wa?

I had to sit and think about what just happened. Let's see, hugs, bath...then....humiliation? I am more of a Man than these penguin jammies reflect. I don't care how cute everyone thinks I am.

My girlfriend Sparkle Sassy Pants came over!

Hi Doggies! I have some really fun news. Seems as if Anna got a doggie sitting job this weekend. She watched Sparkle Sassy Pants for the day while her Mommy and Daddy were busy. Well, the cool thing is that I am totally in love with her. Look at those refined features. She also has an amazing fashion sense with that cutie patootie bow on her head.

ChaChi tried to get in on the hugs but she settled for sitting on Anna's lap. I hope this is a lesson to ChaChi that she isn't the only cute doggie in town. I, Jet, am completely excited to spend the day with both of my lovely puppy girls.

Pool Party!

Hey, Jettie! Babs went to work so let's PAR-TAY!
I have the pool all set up. You get the margaritas!

I am already in the pool, ChaCHi. Besides, didn't you already have a few?

Well, maybe a couple...but I think my margarita glass is empty again. I'll be right back.

How much time do we have before Babs comes home? I hope she doesn't catch us. I think she thinks that we just sleep all day when she is at work....

We do get sun once in a while!

Hi puppies. I just thought I would include a picture of Anna and I in the sun. I know we complain about the snow often and I think I should point out that it isn't ALWAYS cold in Minnesota. Here is a picture of Anna and I. We LOVE the deck. I especially love to hunt for ants!

Momma has been ignoring us...

so I have been pampered by Anna. Here is the bed she made me. See my duckie? Momma has been super busy with her new job and it turns out that she is also taking a 10 week class. I don't like all of the studying. She is slacking on her blog. ChaChi didn't like the new schedule and let Momma know by peeing in her closet. I know that soon she will be not so busy and will be back to blogland soon!

A quick pic of MEEEE!

Babs took this lovely photo of me last night. I was sitting on her bed and she captured my handsome smile with her iphone camera. Don't I look super de dooper cute?


Thank you POPPY!

AWE! I got an award from Poppy...my Chihuahua buddy! I feel so lucky to have met so many awesome people and puppies through the wonderful world of cyberspace! Thank you. I am going to pass this along to Simba because he is the KING of BLOGGING in my book! Thank you Poppy and Simba for always having fun posts and keeping us up to date with your adventures!

Big Garden ....Small Dogs....

Happy Sunday everyone! ChaChi and I have been enjoying our backyard and I thought I should post some pictures of our big garden. (well, everything is big to us) The weather has been so beautiful and the Minnesota Mosquitoes have not been out yet...so it has been enjoyable. ChaChi is big into pouncing on ANTS. I like to sniff all the flowers and bark at the birds. Babs seems to like her cup of coffee the best. Have a wonderful Sunday everyone!

Saturdays are good!

"HI! This is me...Jet! I decided to oversee Graham's activities on the laptop. He is studying for finals and I thought he needs a little extra support. He asks me all of the hard questions and I do my best to answer them."

"This is ChaChi hanging out in the sun. She likes to go out on the deck and watch the birds and squirrels. She is getting to be quite a little barker. ChaChi, I think Babs got us new flossies to chew so you should come in. That is about all there is to report. I like Saturdays!"

Lazy Day!

Sometimes I sleep like this and Babs calls me a "peoples". Today was especially nice because Babs decided to read and lay around and only do laundry. This provided many opportunities to nap like this. I don't even think she made the bed today...which made it very easy to sneak way under the covers and go back to sleep. Nighty Night and Nappy Nap!

The Great Coffee Extraveganza!

"Jettie, watch this. I will drive us to this neat little box. All you do is say that you want an iced coffee please and a coffee of the day" ~Chachi

"OK, I want that!"~JET

" Oh my doggie, then they just hand it to you? Yummy. How do you use a straw?" ~JET

"I have GOT to tell all the other dogs out there about this. This is amazing! Do you have these little talking boxes by your house?"~JET

American Idol

So tonight is the big night. I have my tuxedo on and everything. I think I am going to be the next American Idol. I mean, I am very handsome AND I am very vocal!

Babs thinks that David Archulete is going to win because he did an amazing performance last night. She was thrilled he picked an Elton John AND a John Lennon song to sing. She thinks he is the winner.

Time will tell.....

House of CRAZY!

Oh my doggies, I have to tell you about what happened last night. I think our house was invaded by 12 year old girls. It was CRAZY! At one point, they dressed Jet and I up for a doggie fashion show. I was passed from girl to girl and they were all so loud and giggly and .....it was just really, really loud at our house.
This is a picture of AJ making HOT DOGS on the grill. YES! HOT DOGS! (not to be confused with HAUTE DOGS, like myself, in the fashion world) Anydoodle, did I get a hot dog? Did I get a piece of that scrumptious cake? NO. It was not my party.

So, I decided to take my frustrations out on my chewy stick. This is me. I am pouting that my house is so CRAZY loud with screaming, giggling, girls. I am pouting because they made me wear ALL of my clothes...and they changed me about nine times. I am pouting because I never got a hot dog OR a piece of Oreo ice cream cake.

Maybe it was the Venti Starbucks Coffee...

Maybe it was the Venti Starbucks Coffee or it could be the flowers. Babs is kinda nuts this morning about Spring. She keeps smiling and telling us how beautiful the deck looks. I have to admit, it is better than snow. But somehow these little plants are stealing my thunder. Aren't I beautiful too, Mama?

Our Friends Weeny and Daisy brought this to our attention:

"ChaChi, does this mean I don't have to wear sweaters if I don't want to???" Jet.

What is she doing?

I see the sunshine. I see the hose. I see Anna and
Mom walking back and forth. What are they doing?

Ooh, I see it now. They are PLANTING!
I forgot it is Mother's Day and that it is finally warm!

Of course I must sniff the plant and inspect the plantings myself.
Yep. I think that is a pretty flower. Good job!

Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Mothers Day, to all my mothers....But let's not forget my super de dooper Mommy, Pinky! She is the beautiful Chinese Crested in the picture above. Ralph, my Daddy, is next to her and Nakey and Sammy are in the background and are my brother and sister. Pinky is an amazing Mommy.

Of course, I have more Mommies that took care of me...Amy, Mary, Babs, Anna....But I just wanted to tell you that I was thinking about Pinky today and thankful for all of her effort in bringing me into this world.

Happy Mothers Day to all the Human Mommies and four legged Mommies!

Do you think Babs would take me someday?

Gotta case of the Mondays??

Is it really Monday? I want another weekend day. I want to sleep all day in the sun but Babs is cleaning again like a mad woman. Vacuuming and stomping all around...can't I get a little bit of sleep? Geesh! I wanna crawl back into my comforter and dream sweet dreams of bil-jac's and bully sticks, squirrels and birdies!

Chilly Charity!

Happy Saturday! Today was a first for Jettie and I. We participated in the "Walk for the Animals" for our local Human Society Animal Shelter. Here is a picture of our Team! We raised over $1,000 for all of those homeless kitties, puppies, and animals!
This is me, ChaChi Lu, thinking about how lucky we are to have loving homes. Inside this building, many puppies and kitties are just waiting for a good home. Babs said that she was walking in memory of her favorite rescue dog, Zack, who grew up in her home and was found at this very shelter by Babs and her Dad when she was little.
This is a picture of AJ, Graham and Jettie. Uncle Rick has Simon in his arms and is walking in honor of Simon, Louise and Buster (who were also rescue dogs that were brought home to live with Amy and Rick).
Here Amy and Louise (Skipperkee) pose outside of the very building that Louise was rescued from. Louise is a happy Senior Citizen and was participating in the walk even though she is 91 years old in people years. Sometimes Amy helped her along by picking her up and carrying her.
Lucy the Corgi belongs to our friend Nate who also walked on behalf of our team. Lucy went to the groomer before the walk and was voted by Nate and Babs as the prettiest Corgi at the walk.

We all enjoyed helping our local shelter and shivered through the 40 degree temps for a great cause! Cheers to the volunteers, friends and family that donated money, and all the businesses that supported this event.

Begging pays off!

Jettie and I have a perfect plan when it comes to dinner time. We have this bench that is just our height and we are able to keep our eyes on all the delicious food as well as what drops on the floor. Here is Jettie and I keeping tabs on the latest barbeque dinner.
What are they eating, Jettie? Can you see? What is that yellow thingy? It looks interesting!

OMDOG! This is something super tasty! Babs can't even get a good picture since we are eating it so furiously. This is why we don't take our eyes off the dinner table. I think our cute little whimpers helped Anna to see that we wanted some too!

I woke up this morning to a very nasty joke. Seems as if Mother Nature decided to SNOW some more. How is this possible? I was going to go for a walkie around Lake Calhoun today. Sick Sick Joke!
I guess I will just have to settle for snuggles with Graham in the SUN PORCH...(yes, it is supposed to be a SUN porch and not a SNOW porch). ~ChaChi

Oh, ChaChi, just relax and enjoy the Saturday like me. Find a blankee and cuddle up! ~JET

Vegetarians Beware...

OOOOH! What is this super tasty thing, ChaChi? It is delish!

It is a rainy day, JET, so Babs found us something to do. Boredom never strikes when you have a PIG'S EAR! Nummers! This is me devouring it like a precious lady that I am....
