A Woman Can Dream

A couple of months ago, Biggy had to fly to Destin on a mission for Selig, leaving me to fret and cry for his safety. He returned from his one-day journey with a magical tale of having seen a rare Chipoo. The little dog, part chihuahua and part poodle, was guarded closely in its gossamer tote-bag by a lady sitting nearby on the plane. He spoke of its cuteness and sweet nature (the puppy, not the lady). I had to see one for myself, so I googled. And I came across a site that told of many such fantastic creatures--the results of man's desire to create and nature's passion to evolve. I wanted one of these extraordinary animals for myself, more than I ever wanted a unicorn or a monkey, though I knew it was not to be. I became obsessed, scouring the list, studying the pictures for the most preposterous, unlikely combinations. I shall share some of my longing with you now:

First, the Chipoo:



The Bassetoodle (Bassett Hound/Poodle)



The Bashar (Bassett Hound/Sharpei)



The Bostinese (Boston Terrier/Pekingese)



The Chiweenie (Chihuahua/Dachshund)



The Cheeks (Chihuahua/Pekingese)



I will practice my positive visualization until I make my fantasy a reality. But for now, I must remain content with my beautifully ordinary purebred:

I like the sharpei/whateveritis best, and the Cheeks kinda creeps me out. Seems like the type of dude that would stare at you in your sleep. I vote for the Sharpei thing.

i wouldn't put it past you to play abraham and isaac with stella, only you'll go through with the killing just so you can get a new dog.

it's ok sarah. we realize you must be having a bad week.

minus five said...

tania's mom: who said anything about having a bad week? do i seem irrational or angry with all of my comments about murder and death?

Jennifer said...

Why are there no rat terrriers on this page of beautiful dogs?

mamoo said...

TAAANNNIIIAAA, HHEEELLLLPPPP!

Tania Rochelle said...

It's best if you ignore her outbursts, Mamoo.

Expert Witness said...

Ignoring Minus-Five never works, it only makes her worse. It has been my experience that she responds better to gifts of money and candy. You might also just try being nice to her.

Tania Rochelle said...

Mamoo, it's also best to ignore "Expert Witness."

MAMOO said...

yeah, and i bet camel cigarettes would work too, e.w.

Jennifer said...

Get her a rat terrier!

Awwww...cute puppies. I feel the same way about pets as I do about children: I like being around them for an hour or two then I'm ready to send them back to their rightful owners.
