Doodle keeps losing weight, thankfully! He is down to 14 pounds and dropping! I feed him a half cup of Merrick's Wildnerness blend and some fruits & veggies. Since Chihuahuas originated in Mexico, they used to eat fruits and rodents for meals. I skip the rodents, but they love fruits. All but grapes and raisins. I think avacado is Jasmine's favorite. It is easy because Eric & I eat a lot of fruits & veggies so I give them a little of my leftovers. This is truly a miracle doggie. He was so heavy he couldn't walk and had thyroid disease. I take him to a vet in Kings Mountain, NC that is a holistic vet. He was a missionary in Colombia, South America for 20 years and has taught me so much about how to take care of my dogs. Doodle is a happy boy and he really tries to sing like Jasmine, but sounds more like a frog!!
Here's the princess Jasmine, looking pretty & perfect as usual. She likes to bite Doodle if I talk to him or pet him too much!

Here's a really cool thing! I told my good friend Chris (who is a great artist) that my favorite monkey was a Lion Faced Tamarin. He painted me a picture for my birthday! How sweet!

This was my birthday dinner with my good friend Catherine, Chris, and Eric. Catherine took us all to Nakato in Pineville and it was so good! She gave me the coolest card! Good friends like these are hard to find and I am so thankful for mine!
-Have a great day!
