During the entire ride home, Hendrix laid in my lap and slept. I wondered if he would bond to me as I had already bonded to him. From the minute we got home though, he made it known that he was definitely bound to me. He would follow me everywhere. Hendrix sat right between my feet, when I was still. He would whimper if he lost sight of me, and begged so pitifully to be let into bed with me.
Hendrix and I were inseparable. I even took him to school when he was a puppy. He would sleep in my purse during the whole lecture. That didn't last long. He quickly became more alert and aware of his background, and began trying to peep out. The day I knew I could no longer bring him was quite comical.
He was such a curious little fellow, and soon decided he would wander outside my purse. Someone saw him and Hendrix noticed that he was being watched so he let out a yelp. "Ruff," said Hendrix; loud enough to catch the professor's attention. He was too small for the professor to see, so he was unable to pinpoint exactly where the noise came from. "Who is interrupting me?" yelled out the professor.
All the students looked around as if to say, "Who's interrupting you?" No one told on us. I couldn't help but smile but after thinking about it for a while, I couldn't stop laughing. It really was a funny situation. Little Hendrix was just standing by my purse, not making a sound. It was like he knew we could be in trouble at any moment, and he was ready to make a getaway if we had to. The look on his cute little face was priceless.
I laughed so hard as I gathered up Hendrix, stuffed him back into my purse, and excused myself. We left as fast as we could get out of there. I didn't want to upset that professor.
The real fun started when we found Layla. We found her at a Pet Store. We always knew we wouldn't leave Hendrix to spend his time alone when we had to go to work or school, but to take Hendrix with me everywhere was quickly becoming more and more impossible. That's when Paul and I decided to speed up our good intentions, and find Hendrix a little friend immediately - Layla. She was the tiniest puppy in the pet store. She didn't really stand out that much, but when I saw her, I knew she was perfect for us and for Hendrix.
Hendrix and Layla, from the minute they met, were friends. They played together, they slept together, they'd even hide together on bath days. Hendrix loves to play fetch. Layla is a food hound.
These two little doggies are the closest thing to family that we know. We are so lucky to have them and we're looking forward to the endless days of fun and love they offer us. We're thankful, every day, to have them to care for and to love.
Love your story about your fur-babies. They are adorable and look so happy and contented. They appear to be a perfect match too. You can definitely tell which is which. Hendrix looks like the protective male while Layla sleeps contentedly at his side.
I'm so glad you found them, and have made them into real members of your family. We wish you many happy years together and hope you'll share more pictures of them with us. They are both so photogenic.
Thank you for sharing them.
They are beautiful and so healthy looking. You obviously take very good care of your "babies". We had chihuahuas
when I was growing up. They were my grandmother's, and were just so smart and cute. If they did something they were not supposed to, she'd scold them, and they'd hide their heads under the cover so she couldn't see their faces. I believe they thought if they couldn't see her, then she couldn't see them.
Thanks for sharing.
Awwwwww. A pair of real cuties, I must say. What are you feeding them that makes them so clear-eyed and their coats so glossy looking? My father used to give his old hunting dogs raw eggs to get their coats to look good, and my mother would get onto him. Said that it made the dog want to eat her chicken's eggs. I don't know about that, but it never stopped my father.
Your Hendrix and Layla are so nice. Looks like you picked out the perfect female for him too. He is very proud-looking.
What beautiful babies you have! And I thoroughly enjoyed the story of Hendrix's last day of school! I had a Chihuahua that I used to carry around in my purse too. We went to lots of places that we weren't supposed to. What fun! Please give them both "SMOOCHES" from me.
Aww! How precious, they are just too cute. Makes me want to just hug them. Chihuahuas are my favorites.
I have a little chihuahua now that is almost identical to your Layla. Her name is Bambi, and she is the same color and
has a little white tip on the end of her tail as well. They could be twins almost, except for the fact that I know Bambi's
mom and papa. My Bambi is also a little chow hound, and lives for the next feeding. Sometimes, she'll go in and wait
patiently by her dish hoping for a treat or maybe an extra bit of something. She is so small that I know she can't eat much at the time, so we feed her about 4 times a day, just a teaspoon or two of food. She does get bits of fruit like
banana when she begs for a treat though.
I don't know what I'd do without her, but hopefully, she's going to be with me for a long time yet. She is just a bit over 2 years old, and I bought her for my own Christmas present to myself on Christmas of 2009. She goes everywhere with me, and when she was a baby, she rode in my purse too, so I can imagine just what it must have been like in your class that day.
One day, maybe I'll get pictures of Bambi and you'll get to see her. I sure enjoyed your story. Thanks for sharing
Layla and Hendrix with us.
Two really beautiful little doggers. They can end up being about the same as kids, can't they? I worry about my 3 dogs
the same way I did my children when they were young.
Your babies are a good pair. They just look right together. You were lucky to find them both. I wish you good luck with
them, and hope they live long happy lives with you.
Your Chihuahuas are so sweet-looking. I would just love to pet and hug them myself. They sure make a good looking
pair of fur-babies. Very well matched.
You can tell by looking at them that they are your "family". It is so good to see that. It makes my heart happy.
Thanks for sharing them.
Ali, what a love story. I know for sure how much they're loved.At the moment I don't have any fur-babies living here but I'm still looking. I had my Panda for almost 15 years and still tear up looking at her pictures.
My best wishes to all of you as I also just heard of your engagement.Your all a very special blended family.
Thank you so much for sharing and posting. God Bless.
