An Observant Chihuahua with a Point of View

Tag Archives: neighborhood

Things were different in my house today.  Dad left the house early, and he was gone all day.  He is usually home with me and Mazi.  Mom was home most of the day, but she was busy.  I wanted some attention from her, but she either had her computer on her lap or she was moving around the house doing stuff.    So I stayed curled up in my blankets most of the day.

There were a lot of noises outside though!  Mazi and I hate that!  We both try to ask what’s going on, but we just get yelled at – I guess humans don’t like barking very much.  But it’s the only way we have to communicate!  “Be quiet,”  or “it’s ok, lay down,” the folks say.  The problem is, we have very sharp hearing, and we know there are things happening outside the house that might hurt our family and us.  We are trying to protect our home.  WHY DOESN”T ANYONE LISTEN TO US???

Anyway, I’m exhausted tonight.  I usually am after a day of noisy activity in the neighborhood.  I mean really, can’t the neighbors keep the noise down?  It’s bad enough that the mailman comes to the house everyday – but this extra stuff is too much for me.

The picture I’m posting is of me finally getting some lap time with my Mom.  It makes me feel so much better to sit on her lap and just know that she is here to comfort and love me.  I know I have a big personality, but I’m still only 5 pounds.  And although I’m a pretty mature dog, I still need my mom to let me know that everything is going to be alright.
