Farfl and the fleece

Okay, so my first mistake was dropping my fleece on the floor. Once Farfl got hold of it it became her new bed. And she hasn't given it up yet. The only thing that distracts her is when my kid comes home....

Cute chihuahua picture of the week

Cute chihuahua picture of the week Farfl was "chillin'" (as I believe the kids say) and I couldn't resist taking some pictures of her. I knitted the blanket for Farfl before she was old enough to come home. Click on the "More" link to see more pictures. The blanket is on top of a cushion that my best friend Emma made for me before I emigrated to Canada from England. It's next to my desk in my home office and it's where Farfl hangs...

Chihuahua costumes for Halloween

Chihuahua costumes for Halloween I know I only just wrote about Bloomingtails but I just got a Tweet from them (you can follow them on Twitter here) reminding me that Halloween is coming up. I saw this costume for Farfl but for some reason forgot to order it in my excitement about getting Farfl's custom-made fleece playsuit for the winter. I just went back online and ordered it - their selection is fantastic! Really delicious...

Knit a chihuahua sweater

Knit a chihuahua sweater It's been getting a little cooler in Toronto these past few days. I'd been meaning to knit Farfl a few sweaters for the Autumn, but had been busy knitting socks for myself and my girlfriend Sarah. Then one evening last week when Farfl balked at going outside I knew I had to pull my finger out! I don't know about you, but I find it really difficult finding knitting patterns for very small dogs...

Fantastic online clothing store for toy breeds

Fantastic online clothing store for toy breeds I'm always on the lookout for excellent online clothing stores for my chihuahua. Until now I hadn't found one that had a wide collection of products with a decent price range and, most importantly for me up in Canada, reasonable shipping and handling costs. I belong to a Facebook group called Toronto Chihuahua - we meet up once a month at an off-leash park or the indoor facility at PawsWay. It's...

This week’s super-cute chihuahua pictures!

While Farfl was staying at Shangri-Paw she met a pug puppy called Rocco. They were pretty close in size and became firm friends. Click on each picture to see the full story. Thanks so much to Sharon Herman for posting these on Facebook!

Boarding your Chihuahua

Boarding your Chihuahua Every year at the end of August our family goes away to a festival in the Laurentian mountains in Quebec. My husband teaches, my daughter runs around with her friends and I relax and listen to music all day long by the lake. This year was the first year we've had to consider what to do with Farfl. Jess the cat is easy. She has a wonderful visitor, Betsy, from BredinsBest. But what to do with the...

Farfl’s first hotel stay

Finding a dog-friendly hotel is no easy feat. Last weekend was visiting day at my kid's camp. In Sudbury. Which will mean nothing to anyone unless they live in Ontario, Canada. I'm a city slicker now, but I grew up in darkest Warwickshire. Very pretty, very rural, tiny village, not much going on. But a damn site cuter than Sudbury. But I digress - this blog post is not supposed to be about...

Farfl at Afrofest 2009

Farfl at Afrofest 2009 It was a long day and she coped admirably! On Sunday we decided to walk down to Afrofest because Oumou Sangaré was playing - one of my husband's favourites. Then we thought - why not take the dog? It was a good opportunity for my husband (above) to experience what it's like to take a dog to an event. He doesn't have much experience of dogs and was worried she'd get squished. All the kids...

Smokey and the Barbecue Fork

Smokey and the Barbecue Fork It wasn't the most auspicious start to this Kentucky family's barbecue When another dog was bugging Smokey for his food, a member of the Wagers family waved a barbecue fork at the big dog to get rid of it. Unfortunately the fork flew off its handle and embedded itself in the 12-week-old puppy's head! Smokey ran off for a couple of days hiding but as soon as he came back the family took him...
