Chunky Monkey



Gus here .. seriously, my name is NOT Chunky Monkey as these silly humans call me in fun.  I am a bit on the chunky side, I do just love to eat but come on, give me a break!  Chunky Monkey?

Ah, but there she is again, sitting and her lap is empty – yea, I’m there!  Despite the knick name I do love these people I live with.

This is me.  I’m in a little wagon and there is a stuffed scarecrow that is set up as if he or is it a she – can one ever tell with a scarecrow? – driving the wagon.  Whatever.  gus4_oct_24_2010

Here is a photo where you can see the wagon and the silly scarecrow.  And me, not looking like a happy camper.  It was starting to rain and I simply wanted to go back inside the house where there are couches and warm beds to curl up on!

Even though I’m a bit on the chunky side, I’m still small – even by gus2a_oct_24_2010Chihuahua standards.  Hey, you should come to an adoption event and stand up for me and Bubba.  Because you know what those silly volunteers are talking bout doing for a fundraiser?  The Biggest Looser: me or Bubba!  Bubba needs to look a whole lot more weight than me!

Here is my “Am I not adorable” pose.

Back to business.
Ok, here is my like list: other small dogs, human laps, warm beds, and occasionally getting to act like a big mean guard dog (I am a chichi after all) and kibbles and bits and treats.gus7_oct_24_2010

This would be my, I’m going back into the house now move.
And here is my dislike list: big dogs, children who move fast and make high pitch noises, an empty food dish.
