Happy Winter’s Solstace to all my friends and fellow bloggers

Hold your loved ones close on this shortest day
Perfect weather for snuggling, chilling and reflecting on the new year
After today, the days get longer again as we await spring

Life is beautiful

Embrace each season, they all have something to offer

Combat Chihuahuas Unite!

Here’s a cute little poem I wrote several years ago in honor of my Mom’s Chihuahua, Fawn (RIP). Although the poem was for Fawn, I think it relates to many small dogs who think they are bigger than they really are, which is always so endearing. ENJOY!

Combat Chihuahuas Unite!

She’s such a little lady
She’s the perfect companion
But better watch your step because
She thinks she’s a doberman!

Combat Chihuahuas Unite!

Her bark protects her master
She’s a killer dog from Hell
Fighting crime, she has no time
But she’ll break for Taco Bell!

Combat Chihuahuas Unite!

So pretty in her doggy cape
She may be the cat’s meow, but
“Get this damn thing off me!
I wanna get naked now!”

Combat Chihuahuas Unite!

And when the day is over
When it’s time to go to bed
She’s no longer known as “killer”
She’s just a weary sleepy head.

Little Combat Chihuahua “Night night!”
