Vote for Tequila!

Oct 28th, 2011 Posted in Chihuahuas | no comment »

Tequila is entered in a Halloween Costume Contest at Ask Away.   She would love your vote.   She is offering cyber puppy wags and kisses and future cute pictures for your trouble 😉

You can vote once every 24 hours at the link above.  She is the 3rd one down.

Here is a preview of her costume.  This was sent to us by my friend’s mom.  I had bought her a orange/black dress that could be used after Halloween as well rather than a costume per se, so I was really thrilled with this one.   She wore it to her vet visit yesterday and it was a huge hit with everyone there 🙂

Teq Loves Her Chewie!

This is a series of pictures I took while Tequila was chewing on her beloved bully stick.   I think there are probably 30 pictures in the whole series.  She was having so much fun with the chewie and really moving around tons while chewing on it.  I was taking pictures as fast as the camera was cycling.   Click on the pictures to enlarge them.

Mini Dress Part 2

I also decided that Teq needed a mini dress in her own size so she didn’t have to hold her breath all the time.   I wanted to learn how to make ruffles as well, so figured this would be a good project to try that out on.

Since this was just for us, I did not put any ribbon or other covering over the seam on the ruffle, so please excuse the rather rough/unfinished look in that area.   Teq has been wearing this little dress on game days to cheer on the Pirates and it’s holding up very nicely to her playing while wearing it, I’m happy to report.

Mini Dress Part 1

As I said in New Coat Part 2, I was side tracked by Mini Dresses.    Anna got some darling mini dress harnesses for her little 1+ pound puppy, Gracie and wanted to know if I could make them.   I figured I could at least try, so I set about to do just that 😉

Here is my first attempt at one.  This is just a dress, not a harness and it’s for a 1+ pound dog so Teq at 2+ pounds is being asked to kindly hold her breath while I squeeze her into it for pictures!
