Waiting for his Momma

Every day I leave for work at the same time and come home right around the same time too. Steve has told me in the past that the peanut heads always start to get antsy around 5:00, which is about 15 minutes before I arrive home. He says that they get up and start pacing around or will sit in front of the door. When I get to the front door, Chewy is the one who always hears me and will look out the window and start his happy whining and pawing on the screen, then I can hear Lilibell in the background starting on her high pitch whining bark.....when I open the door I'm greeted by two monkeys who are in a frenzy! Lilibell is dancing circles and jumping and Chewy's tail is going a mile a minute and then he starts jumping from couch to couch. Both of them won't settle down until I sit down and they can get in my lap to give me kisses!

In our living room, we have a bench underneath one of the windows that looks down the street and also onto our driveway.


Chewy is the only one who is able to jump up on this bench. I usually approach the house from the opposite direction, but yesterday I approached it from this direction. As I got closer to the house, I could see through this window the top of Chewy's head and his ears. When I got to the driveway, I said "is that my Chewy?" and instantly his head popped up and he started his usual happy whining and barking. My Chewy, the sweet son that he is, was sitting on this bench waiting for me to come home! It was enough to just melt my heart!

Aww...what sweet munchkins. That Chewy steals my heart every time I see him. And Lilibell looks very lovely in her Susan original!

Hi Lili and Chewy,

The picture of you two looking out the window is precious! Me and Banjo meet mom at the door and as soon as she opens it, we go out and run circles around her, then follow her right back inside to do the happy dance. She says it makes her feel good to know she was missed. BOL

Wags & wiggles,

Our parents can never get over how us chi's have an inbuilt alarm clock - we know when it is time for everything!
You are such a handsome boy Chewy, we have never seen a chocolate chihuahua except for in pictures. Lilibell, your dresses are to die for, we are green with envy!

Kisses and wags
Dinah and Bridget xx

Mollie and Bobo do the same thing when my mom comes home every night. Bobo howls and Mollie squeals.

Such devotion! This story warms my heart. The picture is priceless.

I often wonder what if my little chi-chis do anything to prepare for my arrival each day.

It does warm your heart to get all the happy dances and such...Draco also plasters his ears backwards and wiggles like no tomorrow :)

oh that Chewy of yours will melt even the 'hardest' heart.........and ms L is a sweetheart.

my little monkey will wait for us at the door ( unless she's being fed by one of us....then food is still the master ) and wants me to sit on the floor for her to jump onto my lap for some cuddling

what will we do without them???
have a great weekend
