The Snaggle-Toothed Chihuahua

He stands up on his hind legs every time you offer him a treat!  This funny dog…

Once, a few years ago, he escaped my house through the backyard fence and had a little adventure out there in the big world.  I put up signs all over the neighborhood and a very nice lady called to say she had spotted him in one of the photos on the Castaic Lake Animal Shelter website!  We drove out there to check and make sure it was really him so we can bail him out.  It was him!   We had to “re-adopt” him, paying fees, including a “room & board” fee!  I’m sure he enjoyed his all-expenses paid vacation!  (Worth every penny to get him back!)
