I hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day Celebration! My hubby and I had a date at home that started in the kitchen... we cooked together then enjoyed our special meal with music and candlelight. Ahh! The entire evening was wonderfully romantic!

Now for a little puppy love, since it was Chico's birthday on Valentine's Day and I did, in my previous post, promise to tell you more about him! Chico is now 7 years old and around our house he's still considered a puppy! We got Chico while we lived in Mexico; he was only 15 days old. He's a Schnoodle, a mix between Poodle and Schnauzer. His eyes had barely opened and he still couldn't walk. The sad story is...his mom died after eating a chicken bone. But, but, but that wasn't the end of his story!
Our daughter Sarah bottle fed Chico warm milk and even rolled him around in a baby carriage. As Chico grew, she carried him on her hip and he would lay his head on her shoulder. He often got special oatmeal preparations with apple and potatoes. Even homemade dog treats and cakes on occasions! I would say, spoiled is the word!
Our son Nick taught him how to sit and gave him his exercise with "rough play". Chico likes to keep Nick's bed warm too! In fact, Nick's bed is the only furniture he's allowed on, however, Chico seems for forget that on occasion. Humm, Humm....
This is my favorite picture of Chico. I took this one on Christmas day about 4 years ago when he was nice and groomed.
Nick is Chico's personal groomer now-a-days...and well, he pretty much is always sporting his fur coat. And no, he probably really didn't need his red sweater. But he looked cute and the kids thought he needed it. He has since chewed a hole in his sweater after carrying it around like a rag when he wasn't wearing it.
Nick actually does a very good job grooming Chico. It's a big job and with all that hair it take about 4 hours.
Chico's favorite thing to do is drag his many toys out of his toy basket and carry them all over the house. It seems like I'm constantly picking up after him. His favorite is a stuffed Pluto. Yea! for garage sales, can't beat 25 cent toys! When he rips open his stuffed animals, Nick sews them back up. I knew I taught my son to sew for some good reason!
This was his birthday outfit two years ago. I made him a Party hat with a matching scarf.
Happy Birthday Chico!
Oh yes! we have a spoiled little puppy...and I only told you part of it!
