For the first entry, I will share Friday's history. I have had her 17 weeks today.
The week before Easter, the boyfriend I had at the time called me at work and asked if I would like a puppy, a Chihuahua. I had never thought of owning a Chi, and didn't think I would like one very much. But, for years and years, I thought about getting a dog. I researched to see what the perfect fit for me would be (a Chi was never an option). Anyway, after a few hours of thinking about it and asking my then-bfriend if he would help me with her, I said yes.
He delivered my pup to me at work and I intantly fell in love. At first, he was insisting he wanted an all tan Chi, but we ended up with a black and tan. Well, she couldn't have been more perfect. As she slept in a box on my desk, I tried to think of a name. Easter was a huge event for me this year (entirely different story), and I wanted a name of significance. She was an answered prayer for me, so I deceided to name her Friday, since my prayer was answered on Good Friday.
I was very lucky to have a boss who allowed me to bring Friday to work everyday. She slept under my desk and became familiar with the people at work. Even though they teased me about her, everyone fell in love with her. She would cuddle up on my lap as I worked. It was all so cute. So, now she is very good with people and actually seems to get offended if someone walks by her without paying attention to her!
Since then, I have kept her at home while I worked.
Fast forward to today:
the bfriend is no longer a part of my life, but I treasure my baby Friday and am so blessed to have in her my life. It has been quite an experience so far. I am definitely an over-protective mom, but I am trying my best. This forum has been a great help. Yesterday, I had my first scare that she was sick. She seems fine now and was very playful this morning (even though she got in trouble for biting my toes yesterday).
So, that is the story on Friday so far. There is so much to tell everyday, and I will try to write often.
**Oh, and her one trick, she gives me a "high-five"! I love it!
Lots of love,
Evie and Friday
