Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!
Once again, I'm showing off my dog, Beau! He turned 7 years old on the 4th of July! He was premature...his poor mom was so afraid of the fireworks that she went into labor early! I'm not sure if I ever shared the story on how we got Beau. Lauren was in 5th grade and wanted a little Chihuahua. This was the during the time when Paris Hilton was caring hers around everywhere.
I told her if she could find one for $70 I would get it for her. Chihuahuas were going for a lot of money back then because they were in high demand...thanks to Paris!
Well, leave it to Lauren, she can be very resourceful when she really wants something. She put an ad on Craigslist (unknown to me at the time) saying she wants to buy a Chihuahua for $70 or less. She got lots of really rude replies back from people saying that the immunizations and vet check ups cost more than that! I'm sure they had no idea they were being so mean to a kid! Anyway, she had someone contact her that had one dog left in a litter and that was Beau! He was 7 months old when we brought him home and he quickly grew into one of the biggest Chihuahuas I've ever seen!
He is the best watch dog ever, although my neighbors would probably call it something else....like annoying! We love him anyway! He always greets me at the door like he hasn't seen me in a week. Even if I'm only gone 10 minutes!
