Each night, Stumpy, the 30 pound Giant Speckled Chihuahua, climbs into my lap, attempts to sit on my head and wants to lie on top on my face. These pictures are taken from that perspective. Stumpy does NOT like the camera flashing in her face.
"GET THAT THING OUTTA MY FACE!"
"OK, you can take one picture, but don't expect any cooperation from here."
"You know, it wouldn't kill you to lit me sit on your head, or lie on top of your face."
"You win... for now... but we will fight this battle again tomorrow night, and the next night and the night after that and..."
We fight this battle every single night and have since she came home to me and became comfortable. When it first started, I didn't want to be to pushy because she was so sensative. Now, she could care less how many times I push her off my head or remove her from my face. The battle lasts anywhere from a half an hour to an hour each night, with breaks to distract her or myelf with her ball or another toy. Finally she settles in for some scritchin'
It's a domination issue, common with heelers, and why so many of them end up in shelters. Of course, it doesn't help that I can't quite get serious, giggle and laugh through out each episode. If I could get serious she might take me seriously.
I'm trying to get a picture of my giantspeckledchihuahua hat face warmer, but it ain't easy.
