The Best Things Come In Small Packages

I love tiny things! Especially when they have four feet. This is Jose',
my 3 1/2 pound
chihuahua
He loves to curl up on my coat (or anything that smells like his "mama"). When we brought him home as an 8 week old puppy he weighed in at 1 pound and 2 ounces! That was nearly 7 years ago.

The first thing my youngest nephew, Brendan, said when he saw him was, "He has a really BIG brain", because of his little round "apple" head. Over the years we have found that he also has a REALLY BIG heart. He is very spoiled. We don't use the "D" word (dog) here. He's a "BABY".

I just snapped this picture today and knew I had to introduce him to the world!
Notice that he's trying to wear my newly finished, hand-knit, feather and fan stitch scarf. Even he knows RED is a great color for the holidays! And that you can't beat something handmade.

Awww, Jose is so precious! And he does need a large encasement for his brain, doesn't he?

Yes, he's not just another pretty face. He is also highly intelligent!

I love that little guy! Tell Jose that Aunty Carey will be over soon and he can sit on my lap while we knit!

Danette is that a fur coat? Isn't that an insult to Josie? I guess the beautiful scarf makes up for the sewn fur thing you wear to keep warm, he understands. our cat's name is josie to but i have to admit The baby is much cutier! Love you! Kathy

Don't worry Kathy, the "fur" coat is a fake one! Jose is a Mexican little boy so its pronounced like Hozay. What color is your cat Josie? We have two kitties also. Love You!!! Danette

I should have known the taco bell dog's name Jose'. Sorry! Love the snow flake scarf. I was spoofing on the fur coat. Stay warm, Kathy

I figured you were spoofing on the fur coat. You know the only real fur for me is a rabbit fur coat!!!:) Speaking of dogs ~ even though I have two already ~ guess what my anniversary present is?! January 17th I will bring home another weenie dog (that's what Sophie is, I'll post a picture of her soon). Scott & I are partial to dachshund's. But Jose' is my special baby no matter what!!!
