So here I am on a Tuesday night. I just ordered Tracye Lynn McQuirter’s “By Any Greens Necessary”, a book I’ve been REALLY wanting to read for some time now, from Amazon.com. While it is true I’m drooling to read this book, the REAL reason I ordered it was so I’d have an excuse to add a nifty little photo book of traveling Chihuahuas to the order. You see, the book was A PENNY (plus $3.99 shipping – how’s that rate again?) so how could I pass up an offer like that? I mean why place an order on your card for $4? So Tracye’s book was just what I needed to balance out that meager order total. At least I restrained myself from adding the adorable peeing Chi garden statue or unwelcome sign; they were twice the price of the book & do not a thing towards advancing my education (though they’re great additions to my Chihuahua collection!) So it’s like “Eat all your n’egg salad & crackers & then you can have your choconana mousse!” Not at all hard for me since I LOVE n’egg salad & crackers (especially the awesome cucumber dill crackers I made a couple of days ago) & tend to skip desert or have just a little to whet my appetite & I’m done. And I stayed off the doggy couture sites altogether or I might have blown it completely.
So there you have it! Stasi’s worst addictions have nothing at all to do with food & plenty to do with adorable little dogs with large, liquid eyes, big ears & bigger attitudes! I doubt I’ll ever find anything Chi with ears like my girl (I call her the lotus petal eared one; they don’t stand all the way up most of the time). I’ll have to have custom work done.
One of these days I’ll find an artist who does the kind of work I enjoy & have Her Highness immortalized. Until then I’ll content myself with my crazy Chihuahua collectibles lust. Have a great night & an even greater tomorrow!
