On Sunday we made a trip to Houston to rescue two tiny Chihuahua sisters about 8 weeks old. Yes, they are the cutest little beings ever! The tiniest one, Zoe, weighs 0.9 pounds, the bigger one, Keira, weighs 2.4 pounds. Yesterday they went for their first veterinarian visit and received a clear bill of health; they didn’t even have worms which is fairly common with puppies. They got their first puppy shots, received worm medicine to make sure none of the little bastards are lurking in their systems, and their first heartworm prevention pill. They’ll continue the puppy inoculations on a usual schedule.
Today we went to our vet clinic to have their photographs done by a professional photographer who donates her time and energy to rescues in the area. She took pictures of 9 little critters today so it will be a few days before we get to see how ours turned out. The goal now is to keep the little ones healthy and happy. We will be re-homing Keira but keeping Zoe. Zoe is an apple-head Chihuahua and I’ve been wanting another one ever since we got Dusty. This one seems to have the same personality that Dusty has, too. She is relaxed and loves to be held and cuddled….just my kind of canine. Keira is all puppy– goes 90 MPH 24/7, rough & tumble, very vocal and playful.
On another note, I’ve been too busy to get in the sewing room again but took a trip to the fabric store today. I’m about to embark on a new project that is a gift for a family member. Tomorrow I have to take Fancy and Dusty to the vet for their yearly check-ups and shots so I more than likely will not get to sew tomorrow either. Between working on computers, running errands, doctors’ appointments, and dogs to the vet I’ve had no real ME time lately. I have just been stacking things up in the sewing room; you can barely see the tables! LOL But there’ll be a bunch of new “toys” to play with in time.
