Not unlike me, Chiquita is extremely food motivated, and we've pretty much ruined her w/ people food. No doubt she spoiled us even, b/c she has an cast iron stomach - again Conker . . . not so much. She can eat practically anything and HAS (much to my chagrin). Of course she would never even think of eating roach poison - Conker (sigh) . . . not so much.
While she's never been an obese chihuahua, she did lose a few pounds when one of my roommates moved out. She adored Chiquita (as everyone does) and she always shared her food w/ her. One day I came home to find them both sitting on the couch watching Jerry Springer eating Thai food.
Roomie: "A noodle for you . . . a noodle for me. A noodle for you . . . a noodle for me . . . "
Me: "Ugh, I thought we talked about not feeding her so much people food?"
Roomie: "But Thai food is her favorite!"
(Insert eye roll here) Yeah, right. My roomie said that last time about the hummus and crackers the night before . . . needless to say Chiquita misses it. (And, for the record, everyone knows cheese is Chiquita's fav, duh)
|Trick "Sitting Pretty" which |
for Chiquita is redundant
since no matter how she sits,
she's always pretty!
|Chiquita all curled up: yup still pretty|
|Chiquita eating and apple.|
