Little Zoe, Not So Little Anymore...

Little Zoe, she is our little rescue dog, we have had her since early last spring, in the beginning I didn't know if she would work out for us, I really REALLY wanted another long hair chihuahua, a lapdog, a little baby I could carry around and love. Zoe was everything I didn't want in a dog, I didn't want a terrier, docked tail, too big to be a lapdog, but she has really filled an empty spot we had in our home after our little Pekoe passed away.

She is really learning what we want from her, we are still working on "come here", it works a little more than half the time, but in the beginning it never worked at all, so in that respect she has come a LONG way. Walking on a leash has also gotten better, in the beginning she would run out the full length of the leash and almost yank my arm off, now she runs the full length of the leash and stops, turns to look at me as if to say, "come on, hurry up!" I would love to be able to take her out off the leash, but she's still too unpredictable, and she runs FAST, even with those short little legs, she can gallop away in no time flat, especially if she sees another critter. I have been practicing with her by taking her off the leash when we are almost to the sky castle, I tell her "let's go home" or "go to the house", she understands what that means and runs right home and up the stairs.

She is getting better about sleeping with us, in the beginning she would not get under the blanket, and she would only sleep at our feet, now she comes up and lays her head on the pillow, she snuggles close, I jokingly told her that she had until this coming spring to become more of a snuggle dog or I would bring home a long hair chihuahua, I guess she heard me loud and clear. :)

So today, I'm on the computer, PB got up super early this morning so he went in and is taking a nap, Zoe is laying between his legs with her head between his boots. I grabbed the camera and snapped a few cute pix, I couldn't resist.

  1. That sure is a cute picture with her head sticking out between the boots!

  2. she really is the cutest thing ever. I remember reading your blog when you took her in. wasn't she with another dog that didn't make it? They were abandoned or something? She looks happy thats for sure. There are a few thing you can do with the coming to you each time. I can give you a few pointers if you would like.

    1. Thanks CheyAnne, yes she was with another dog, her sister, she also found a home, we couldn't keep both of them so we chose the calmer of the two, together they were absolutely out of control, once separated they both calmed down a lot. I do know the sister found a good home too.

      I would be interested in learning what you have to offer, this dog is so different from my chihuahua Pekoe, she was very calm and had a much different temperament, Zoe is full of energy,very smart and very much a terrier, I am learning here as well. :)
