We went on a mini vacation right before christmas, just a few days out of the city, and we stayed in a nice hotel/spa that accepted dogs (to our surprise!). It was right in front of the sea so the chis had a great time running on the beach (and around the hotel room!). We didn't leave them alone in the room much, but the few times we did, they were so well behaved. They didn't bark, didn't touch anything, they just slept on the bed (I left a webcam on to see!). I feel so lucky to have them, they're such little angels (well... most of the time lol). And now some pics of the little monkeys:

Lilo: "I would love to pose for you mummy, but I iz too sleepy... zzzzZZZzz..."

Hi Lilo and Rocky! Love seeing your photos. Your vacation looks so beautiful, I love that you found a doggie friendly hotel. Is the weather warm by you right now? It's been so freezing here, almost unbearable.
We have some dog friendly hotels in Chicago too for our "stay-cations!" They look like they have bonded so well together, like you've had them together from day 1.

Camille, you are so talented, your photos always look like they were professionally taken. Their couples massage picture is so adorable! Just wanna smooch them both!馃槝馃槝馃槝馃槝馃槝馃槝馃槝

Ohhhh finally I get my LILO and Rocky pics. I'm glad you were able to spend some quality time with your babies, it looks like you guys had so much fun. I love all of the pictures, especially of LILO gazing out of the window and Rocky on the ledge. The way the sun beams off of their coats is so beautiful 馃挄. It's great to see pics of your babies. Happy New Year.

Aww thank you so much! It means a lot to me. I love photography and doing it professionally is an idea I've toyed with. Chihuahuas make the best models to practice with while I'm trying to get better! ;)

We've had some cold days, but overall it hasn't been too bad here so far this winter (touch wood! lol). I feel like I can't really complain after my family told me it was -41C in my hometown in Canada the other day. :lol:

You are so welcome! I agree you'd make a phenomenal photographer. You seem very passionate about it. It's never too late to do what you're passionate about. Xoxo to you and your babies.

Aww thanks!! :) It's true that it's never too late even if it can sometimes feel like it is. I have too many interests though and have spent my life skipping from one thing to the next so I think I'm a lost cause career-wise. :lol:

Aahh great photos. You look like you had a blast. I love the pic of Lilo fighting rocky, she means business lol.
I'm always so jealous when you post ur holiday pics, like you say you've little angels. I could never take mine to a hotel. I am really trying my best with mine with classes etc but I'm really failing on the little angel front, especially when out and about. I need to come and visit and learn from the master lol :p

I agree, chihuahuas are the best models!! I love taking pictures too, I bought my first real camera this past summer and I love it!! But I need to take a class on how to use it bc I only know how to use it on auto mode. :(
I really enjoy your pictures, they're stunning, you definitely have talent!

Omg it's so cold in Canada!!! It's been so cold here, I only leave to go to work and back! I'm afraid to get sick!! Really jealous of your weather!! 馃槶

haha That's funny! Trust me it wasn't always like this. I'm lucky that Lilo has always been a little angel, but Rocky was SO naughty at the start. His previous owners socialised him well, but he wasn't really trained. With a lot of work he's gotten so much better now so don't lose hope. lol There are some issues left like barking at home (and he taught Lilo -_-), but as soon as we're out of the house not a sound comes out of them, thankfully.

Aww I think your pictures are great and I've noticed they keep getting better too since you bought that camera. There are some good tutorials online to learn how to use the manual settings, that's mostly how I learnt what I know so far. :)

Oh gosh poor you! I have to say I really don't miss cold winters like you get over there. I'm glad I live in the UK during winter!

I really need to do some research or maybe like a 1 day class??? It's such a waste to use auto mode! Lol. Thank you though!! I didn't know the UK had mild winters, I've always wanted to visit there. the English accent is one of my favorites, it's like music to my ears!! :)

I know what you mean, I think a lot of people are intimidated by it and stick to auto mode, but it's actually not that hard. Go for it! :)

As for the winters here, it depends on where you are in the country, but in London it's pretty mild compared to what I was used to in Canada. It rarely drops below 0C. The cloudy and rainy weather can get a bit depressing though! LOL
