Dobby makes some most excellent nests in my bed during the day. I came home once to find this massive igloo-tent-nest he made.

One of my Favorites

I think it looks like he is singing. What do you think he's doing?

Beverly Hills Chihuahua

Well I finally saw the Chihuahua movie... and it was pretty good. My favorite part, of course, was when they were in Chihuahua with Montezuma and the other hundreds of Chihuahuas- so much cuteness! I was disappointed, though, that they chose a Doberman as the 'bad guy'. I don't really approve of perpetuating breed specific stereotypes... but I guess it was a "realistic" depiction. El Diablo was supposed to be a watch dog, and Dobermans make good watch dogs...?

I know this will never happen, but I'd love to see a movie where the 'good guy' is a Doberman, Pit Bull, whatever, and the 'bad guy' is a Lab or Golden Retreiver. Take THAT, stereotypes!

Not really Dobby-related, but...

I'm taking the GRE tomorrow and I'm so anxious it's all I can think about! Wish me luck!

So much excitement!!

In all the excitement yesterday with the photo fun, I forgot to mention that it was Dobby's "Gotcha!" Day!! He has been with me now for 1 full year- and we are loving every minute. He's really adapted well to the house and life with me. I am very lucky to have found such a perfect little guy to adopt- he's well socialized and in perfect health. Here is the entry about how I first met Dobbs, and a reminder:

Don't Shop, ADOPT!

Dogs 101 This Weekend!

Animal Planet is doing a show called Dogs 101 that will premiere on Saturday at 8pm E/P- and they are featuring Chihuahuas in the first episode! :) They're going through a lot of breeds though, so everyone should watch it. From what I've heard, they will do 5 breeds per episode. In episode 5, they will feature the Doberman, and chose the famous Ramsey and Pablo to be the example of how breed-specific stereotypes aren't always true (good job, Animal Planet!)

Here is what Animal Planet has to say about their series:

"They have the courage to chase lions, the dignity to sit at the feet of royalty and some say even the smarts to read. They are the best companions of the human race—dogs and cats. This 10-episode series is the most comprehensive look at dogs and cats on television. The first eight episodes explore the most popular dog breeds, from the lovable French bulldog to the heroic Labrador retriever. Two cat episodes follow providing a complete picture of the amazing variety of cat breeds. With over 200 dog breeds recognized by the American Kennel Club, DOGS 101 will spotlight the adorable, the feisty and the unexpected. Does the St. Bernard have a sixth sense for predicting avalanches? Can the Whippet see in the dark? Which breed is still used today as a life guard? DOGS 101 uncovers surprising details about everyone’s favorite dog breeds from the Airedale Terrier to the Yorkie. Learn which dog breeds are best for urban living and which ones are most family friendly. Using a mix of animal experts, the personal stories of pet owners and stylized dog photography, DOGS 101 is an unprecedented look at man’s best friend.
