Puppy Love

Hello my friends ~ I have been feeling a bit under the weather.  I have a flu which has been going around and it's not pretty ~

Just thought I would tell you how much I miss all of you ~ and share a little surprise.  Mr. Vintage brought me home something that I have been wanting for a very long time ;-)

Let me introduce you to Chico.  He is nine weeks old and absolutely adorable.  I have wanted another little dog since my Mindy passed.  This little guy was going to be disposed of as the owners could not sell him.   We found out and went to see him.  

He is 1.5 pounds and we bonded immediately.  He won't leave my side.  (Yes, my friends, he is wearing a sock). He is always cold and we couldn't find a coat small enough to fit ~

He loves his racoon ~

I am in love ;-)

Now I'll go back to bed and rest with Chico.

I hope all of you are feeling well,




  1. Congratulations. I would be in love too. What a sweetie, and what a clever idea for a dog coat! He was going to be disposed of??? Isn't that incredible. :-( SO glad he found you - and you found him. ♥

  2. What a wonderful story!!! I know Chico feels better now and I hope you will feel better soon!!!

  3. Sorry you do not feel well, but glad you have a new family member to snuggle up with. One lucky puppy!

  4. Marianne I hope you feel better with each new day.
    Get lots of rest with your adorable new little one! What a sweetie your husband is to get you such a treasure!
    I love the sock on him...it'll keep him cozy warm and of course, snuggling up next to you will be perfect.
    Love & hugs to you!
    Happy New Year!

    All my heart,
    Deborah xoxo

  5. What a cutie! Hope you feel better soon, Marianne!

  7. Awww, Chico is so cute! I hope you're feeling better soon Marianne. There are a lot of bugs going this winter. I just started a cold yesterday so I expect I'll be feeling yucky for a week or more as hubby was. Take care. Pamela

  10. He is absolutely adorable! I had a chihuahua when I was young! She slept in the pocket of my mother's apron during the day. Please feel better soon. Hugs Bonnie

  11. He's absolutely precious! Feel better soon. I was going to get a flu shot today while at the pharmacy, but they were out of the vaccine.

  12. First, let me say I am so sorry you had the flu, it is really nasty this year. Glad you are feeling better. Little Chico is a doll. I can't imagine 1 1/2 pounds and wearing a sock. How cute. Hugs, Betty Lou

  13. Sorry to hear that you're sick with the flu. Snuggle up close to your darling Chico and get better well soon. Chico's love will help you feel better, for sure.
    Love and hugs, Cindy

  15. Welcome Chico, you are one sweet baby!! Hope you're feeling better MarIanne! I have been away from blogging for sometime...lots going on with step-daughter...I'm finally realizing I need to turn her over to God!! Brody keeps me busy, I call him my "Fluff-hound", he challenges our Irish Wolfhound although he's thirty pounds of fluff! Blessings for a Wonderful New Year!! Hugs!
