Xena Reports on Chia

Many thanks to Comedy Plus for hosting Happy Tuesday.

Many of you have asked what’s been happening with Chia, the pup our brother Andrew brought home. Here’s a couple of videos. Watch part, watch all, you’ll see Lucy and Chia bonding. It gets pretty boring after a while.

That’s how Lucy used to play with me when I was a puppy. Now I’m a big girl and can run with the big dogs! I never stay on the porch — unless Mommy tells me to.

Right after a storm Lucy fell sound asleep while Chia sat on her and gave her raspberries. She can be a real brat.

This pink and purple shirt is way too long for me, as it was for Lexi. So Mom figured it would fit this little half doxie just right.

Seems she didn’t like wearing it any more than me or Lexi did.

I’ve started playing with Chia too. She likes to gently comb her teeth through my eyebrows and beard. That feels really nice and I stand still and let her do it. Except one day she grabbed my beard and started pulling! Mommy said if she had know I was going to attack Chia for so long, she would have caught it on video. Of course, this is a G-rated site, so there may have been too much violence to post it. Don’t worry, no one was hurt — except me where she pulled my beard. She sure hasn’t tried that again.

The house breaking is going pretty well. She had one accident first thing in the morning as she was coming out of her (my) kennel. She tried to hold it but had to go too bad to make it the few feet out the door. No one blamed her for that and it cleaned up ok. She has learned to go to the back door when she needs to potty. But she hasn’t quite gotten the hang of ringing the bell or barking or giving some noisy sign that she has to go out. Today she pee-peed on the little rug in front of the door while Mommy was in the other room (office) working. Chia knew she was in trouble, but she didn’t get scolded, cause she at least tried to go out.

Today she sniffed noses with Riley and he wagged his tail. Looks like he’s coming around, too.

Riley: I can be nice.

There’s a wonderful man who lives up the road who we love to visit when we go for walks. His wife died a few months ago after years of him taking care of her. He said he would like a dog, especially a rat terrier like he used to have. Since me and Lucy and our folks are driving up to visit our grandma in less than a week, Mr. Ron said he would keep Chia for us. And maybe forever. *wags* We could still visit with her when we go for walks, and we could dogsit her if Mr. Ron goes somewhere that he can’t take her but I’ll be Mommy’s baby again and won’t have to share the bed after breakfast and get my kennel back.

Chia: I’m not goin’ anywhere. I already proved that. I slipped out the front door without my new Mom seeing me, and guess what? I came right back and whined until Riley told her I was at the door and she ran and let me back in. I got lotsa treats for that one.

Chia’s future is still uncertain, but one thing is for sure. Wherever she lives, whether it’s here or somewhere else, we’ll do our best to make sure it’s her furever home.

Xena, Chia’s friend and boss Wait! I didn’t get my picture in this one…let’s fix that.

  2. It is noce to see you guys getting along! And Chia living with your neighbor sounds like a good solution. Mom says one is awfully lonely when one’s spouse passes away and she is ever so grateful she has us to take care of her. Her and Cinnamon quite often walk with Mr T and his dogs Lil Grrl and Big Boy. Cinnamon and Lil Grrl like to play like Chia and Lucy.

  4. The videos reminded me of our 85 pound Angel Little Bit playing just like that with a pup about that size. It’s ever so fun to watch. Thanks for the smiles.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. Scritches to all the pups. ♥

  5. Loved seeing the play-biting vid. Little Chia is full of energy and persistence, isn’t she? Lucy is such a patient dear. Our hat’s off to you for turning the little Tasmanian Devil into a better behaved pupster. Well done kudos to your mommy, Xena.

      1. Some puppies take longer to adjust to housebreaking than others. Being in rescue (even a wonderful foster situation like yours) adds to the mix. Bless you for spending the time and effort to give her the best chance of a furever home.

  6. It sounds like Chia is coming along nicely in her house training lessons. She and Lucy sure look like they’re having fun playing together. We have our paws crossed that the neighbor likes her so she can have a new home but still be close to you all.

    1. Mommy agrees. She says her love tank stays full with Daddy and me and Lucy, and Mr. Ron needs more than just his adult kids to keep his love tank full, too. Chia has learned to not scream when she’s in her kennel. We’re ALL glad that stopped. XOX Xena

    Oh, look at you Lucy – teaching the new dog what’s right and wrong in play. I do hope Chia doesn’t try to escape the neighbour’s place and run back to your door when you are away… but wouldn’t it be great if she settled there and you could have her company without too much fuss?!! Chia does look very at home though… hugs and wags YAM-aunty xxx

    1. It seems we’ve turned into a family, right along with the normal squabbles between sisters. Since Chia’s the youngest, we get to boss her around BOL! Xena and Lucy


    1. Mommy says she has endearing ways, whatever that means. Daddy says she sure fits right into this household, except for the not yet housetrained part. I say I have a LOT to teach her about manners! XOX Xena
