Kate is our 5year old Chihuahua who has been in our lives for just over a year. She didn't have the best start in life but she's coming on leaps and bounds! Here is her - very spoilt, pampered life.

Adventures of Kate's Cuddles!

Last weekend I got to stay over with my best friend - Adventures Of Del - (I'm not rehearsed enough to do a fancy link, so apologies for that!) www.adventurersofdel.blogspog.co.uk

By best friend, I mean "Somene I can be really mean to and he'll love me anyway...!" I've only been with my forever family for just over a year. They don't think I had the best start to life - I am very jumpy, used to be terrified of other dogs and I run away from all teenage boys LITERALLY screaming like a girl. It's a very odd noise.. 

Luckily, I have known Del since he was a puppy (in fact the are some great pictures on Adventres of Dels blogspot of the two of us the me size!) which means I am comfortable with him. Luckily Del is very clever, and my mum taught him to give me a bit of space every now and again. He's just so big and loveable (and slightly clumsy!) so we have a deal - I have my bed in the corner by the sofa, and he's not allowed in the two foot space infront of it, and if I'm out in his space I have to be nice. It's working wonders so far. I'm still nasty to him sometimes (I do need to keep him on his paws..!) but otherwise I'm heading in the right direction.. We even managed to sleep sharing the same bed at night time! The human was under the mistaken impression that it was HER bed - how odd?! 

This is my little space - he doesn't come past the end of the sofa so I have my food and water in there. I spend most of the time stealing his food though. More satisfying despite the fact we had EXACTLY the same food.. 

Every now and then he sits and waits for me. It's like knocking for me to come out and play. I only come out when I'm good and ready, you can't rush a princess. 

He loves licking the too of my head. His mum says I smell like malted milk mayby that's why? 

On guard waiting for mums to come home! :-) 

You can't see me in this picture - but I am just above his head by the pillows. This is how Del sleeps. A well loved dog in a very happy home! 

It was very funny going for a walk together though... Mum was walking us both and we came around the corner first, with Del following. We bumped into a big group of teenagers who made a nasty comment about me on my lead. Something about Comparing me to a rat. Very nasty. Luckily, Del listens to hand commands as well as voice - so mum game him a silent command to bark - so he came running around the corner and let out a bark so loud the ground shook! I have never seen a group of boys separate so fast. Stupid - I'm scarier than Del, all he would do is lick them to death! But they didn't know that.. Our bit of entertainment for the day. *evil mutely laugh* you don't think I look like a rat do you? :-) 

Do you have any entertainment stories from people stereotyping your big dogs? Or any from anyone assuming your little dog won't defend you like a big dog..? 


  1. Del has a wonderful time! He was so tired after you left Kate. In fact, I think he misses you!

    Thanks to you and your mum for keeping him entertained :)

  2. You are extremely cute and also very small - I remember being that small when I was about 10 weeks old, or maybe it was 8 weeks... it was only for a brief moment, I just kept growing and growing and growing!! I'm now 6 times as big as you.
    It's great to have a big friend - Del looks like a really good pal. I guess I'm a bit like a Del to my kitty fursis Pickle - she's tiny too.

  3. Thanks for your comment. You look like a very energetic pup! Mum loves your curly ears - she has curly hair too and thinks your is much cuter than hers! Del is a very good big friend. And his mum spoils me rotten too. Hehe.

    Love your blog. Thanks for visiting. :-) xx
