It's Time for Camera Critters Again - Yippee!!

Go to http://hootin--anni.blogspot.com/ to participate.

When we had a house full of Greyhounds (three) my DH's sister came to stay with us for a while with two very small mini rat terriers.  We never liked small dogs, but got kind of used to them.  When she left, we agreed we should get a small dog.  I found Ricky (who was Skippy then) and called DH and asked "how small does he have to be?"  Ricky was much smaller than the Greyts, but much larger than the rat terriers, but darn he was cute.  He has since come to be known as The Cutest Dog in The Whole Wide World.  Since he came into a Greyt house, he learned to be like them.  You will see pix some day of him stretched out on his back like they do.  He got to be a bit larger too (by 10 pounds I'm ashamed to say) some from Dad showing love by treats and some from those horrible meds for his allergies.  Anyway, in the interim, we lost two of the Greyts, first Josie, then our first one, Fred - won't talk about that now.  I went to see more Greyts and it was too early for that, so I found another terrier on the internet, through Canine Castaways.  I loved her look and her story, she sounded like she'd fit right in.  She's a terror.  The animal behaviorist said she's a bitch (well, yeah, scientifically, but personality-wise too) however, CiCi and I get along wonderfully.  The AB says she doesn't love me, she just thinks she owns me.  She's right too.  So, after all that, here are Ricky and his little "mini me", CiCi, waiting for yet another meal:


If you have any questions about pet adoption, animal behaviorists, Greyhounds, terriers in general, or anything really, just put them in the comments and I will answer.  Thanks for looking.  Have a happy day.  Peace.  B : )  Oops, forgot part of the story - Ricky is now being more like a terrier and Jeff is left alone as our only Greyt - ahhh but for how long???

Ricky and CiCi are so cute, I enjoyed your post about the adoptions. We have one dog now that we love but our next dog will be a rescue.
Thanks for sharing your critters.

What a cute pair, even if CiCi's temperament leaves something to be desired. Sounds like she found a great home with people who love her.
