I was looking through my photos, getting ready to begin edits on the next shoot, when I stumbled upon a couple shots I took of Sweets – the old man Chihuahua. Totally blissed out at the beach. Ever since we made it out to my parent’s cabin a couple weeks ago, I’ve been doing my best to get us back out there… and I think these images explain why.
Sweets really was completely blissed right out, he’s a lake dog if ever I’d met one. Totally and completely in his element, exploring, sunning, and just generally enjoying everything about being at the cabin. And there is little that makes me happier than seeing someone I love so very happy. I have to admit, sometimes I forget just how short a time this old man has been a part of our family. Seems like he’s always been here. 🙂
In other news… keep your fingers crossed that our little old man chi may soon be a Daddy (again). Knock on wood, we’re hoping to have puppies this Autumn.
Well, Caesar arrived on his Westjet flight early this evening. Sweet little old man Chi. 😉 It’s been a while since we’ve had a senior Chihuahua in the house. And he already reminds me of Noelle…
There really is nothing like a wee little old Chihuahua. They’ve got such spunk, and are just the sweetest little things. I remember Noelle – near the end… couldn’t see, couldn’t hear, only had four teeth… but she was still determined to boss around the other dogs at her play group. Her silly tongue hanging out the side of her mouth, giving sideways kisses. I’d forgotten just how much I missed her until this silly old boy showed up with his sideways kisses.
And just like Noelle, Caesar is a total Daddy’s boy. Right from the moment they got off the plane – both of them instantly had a connection with Damon. Sure, I’ll do in a pinch… but Damon lights their faces right up. Nothing like the glow of an intensely happy Chihuahua, basking in the love of the person they’ve chosen as theirs. And I see that glow already on Caesar – even in the couple hours he’s been here.
Caesar was supposed to be coming here for his “last hurrah”. His sperm tested out well, and so he flew out here to sire some puppies this year. But I can’t help but wonder if he may also have found his retirement home with Damon – who appears to be the person of his dreams. 😉
