JJ



This is JJ the wonderdog, the world's largest chihuahua! He's actually lost a little bit of weight, at one time he weighed 20+ pounds! JJ's had kind of a hard knock life. He doesn't really think he's a chihuahua, he thinks he's a german shepherd, and when he was about a year old, he got out of the yard and jumped on a chow, which chewed him up. Then about a year later, he ate some rancid sausage out of a neighbor's trash, which gave him hives. If we had him out in the yard with us, he would sometimes lose his mind and chase cars like a big dog, with us chasing him, and he was hit by a pickup truck two different times (he just bounced off, though - it never hurt him!), and now he has blown out his ACL because he's such a chubbo, and the vet says that surgery usually doesn't work on small dogs, so all we can do is give him baby aspirin when it bothers him. He's a mess! No wonder he looks like such a little old man at the age of 9! But we love him, and he loves us!

He's got to be the largest one I've seen. My girlfriend breeds them and she doesn't have one that big! Cute pics of him!

Talk about your hard knock life. SHEESH~ Poor guy. He reminds me of my friend's beagle. The belly on the dog drags the ground. They feed him Kibble and Bits, which is the nutritional equivalent of potato chips and snickers. LOL But he's happy...who wouldn't be? LOL

Wow. He has had a hard time! Lucky for him, he's got his great family to take care of him... Sweet shots!

And, I've missed your blog for the past couple of days, so...

Love the butterfly shot. Really crisp and love the colors. If it's not as crisp as you'd like, it doesn't show on my screen.

Love the caterpillar!!! It's perfect on your banner. Really fun.
