I can't believe I let so much time go by since my last post! The truth is, I don't have a lot of time these days. I am graduating in May so this semester is all about thesis writing. I'm also taking one class and working part time... so, you can imagine ChihuahuaPost has fallen down some on my list of priorities :( My little Dobby is just as important as ever, though! I make sure we go for walks all the time, and he is still a spoiled little brat.

Today was a really beautiful day here in NC--it was in the mid-sixties all day. We went to the park to go for a lovely walk, but as we were walking through a field, Dobby spontaneously burst into a run! He was on a leash so I ran alongside him to the end of the field. He hardly ever gets to run like that outside because I don't like to take his leash off him unless it's an enclosed area, and there aren't many public fenced-in fields around, especially ones that have cut grass (because uncut grass is too tall for him to run in!) I could tell he was so happy to be out in the sunshine he just wanted to run, run, run! Nearby there were some fenced-in baseball fields, so we went into one and ran, and ran, and ran for about half an hour. It was a blast. He was so happy! I will definitely be doing this again--the baseball fields are a great idea.

I don't have pictures from today's spontaneous fun, but here are some recent ones:

PS Happy Valentine's Day to you and all our four-legged lovies!

Always great to see you Dob! Good luck to your mom and her thesis. Whew, sure glad we dawgs don't have to write!

I love to run like that, too!!! We have a great fenced puppy park here, but I don't go often enough because Old Girl is in school, too--we understand that!

Those unrestrained runs are sooooo good for them. Next time take along a small sized tennis ball for him to "fetch" Draco just loves to do this. When he brings it back he gets all kinds of verbal encourgment and lots of can just see him smiling. It was good to see an update. Take good care
