if i'm not mistaken, Houseguest Etiquette 101 says :

Don’t show up unannounced .......don't think i was even consulted

Don't impose on your host or hostess's children........these houseguests had to return to training camp

mumster has this annoying habit of having houseguests without first consulting with moi or dadster....... ok some i didn't mind, others i couldn't stand; and there were far too many to keep count...

she to dadster ....."i want to do something to help dogs , the least i could do is to help the weak ones get a head start in life" she's wants a guaranteed place over the bridge called 'heaven...'

dadster to her........." you mean by doing some good you think you can land there -no way as you're too far gone woooman and anyway, you'll be so lonely as all your friends are in the hot spot...."

she stopped talking to him for awhile and for the first time, i have an idea of what winter felt like .......

later, the houseguests started appearing...

Irritant 1
not only wore my baby 'couture' socks, took possession of my then favourite bed

gleefully i heard through the dogvine that she grew long and ugly........yappee

Irritant 2

didn't like her initially as she snitched on me all the time and got me in trouble biiiig time.....
here she's telling mumster that i was bullying her........"help, monster CoCo is biting meee..."

but i tolerated her ......enough to even share MY bed with her........but don't push it;

you keep to YOUR side of MY bed.......

even allowed her in my carrier.....

she really was quite cute........sadly i found out later that she died from parvo and

i was quite happy that i didn't treat her too badly.......

not well but not too badly

Irritant 3 tolerable but still an irritant.....

her siblings outgrew her and her mumster neglected her - she came to us a weakling and barely surviving.......mumster spent nights feeding her hourly till she ate on her own
i helped mum nurse her back to health and she left us when she was healthy, bouncy and a real
pain in the butt.......

i think i smell the next irritant just round the corner.........

How nice of you, your Mom, and your Dad to share your home with these babies that needed extra special care. You can say you don't like them all you want, but dear cousin Coco, we know you have a heart of gold!

Chihuahua kisses,
The Munchkins

Olive said...

awwww..I know it is hard to have new doggies in your house, but what a great thing you and your Mum have done.

You deserve BIG Hugs for sharing and helping them!!

Awwww Coco, you know you enjoyed having these little irritants with you, at least you had someone to boss around besides your Mum and Dadster!

They are all so cute! I'm glad that you've shared your Mum and Dad with the little ones that needed their help.

Bijou said...

Hi Coco,

I'm sure those pups were very grateful you allowed them to stay with you, even if they did annoy you a little. Thanks for not being to mean to them.

Wags & wiggles,

Dory and the Mama said...

What a wonderful and special thing for your Mama to do Coco...and as you shared your clothes and bed, I am thinking that maybe deep inside you may even like the little ones!


Reese =^..^= said...

You and your mommy are so good to let these puppies into your home. You are doing a great thing.

BRUTUS said...

How nice that your mum has such a big heart that there is enough room for you and then some!! Be thankful that she has a soft spot for little doggies, not ones that might think you were a squeaky toy!!

Draco and his Mom said...

Hahaha Coco....loved your story about the "irritants" Plus winter at your house must have been FUN. Things can get rather chilly at my house sometimes.

Mochi and Mommy said...

That was so nice of you to share everything with them! And so great of your mom and dad to take care of them! :)


Clive said...


We think you're doing a wonderful job - talking in and looking after the dogs that needed some help!

Well done to you all.

Take care

Clive said...

Meant to say thanks for the tag! We'll enjoy doing that one!!

lots of woofs

Chester said...

Your mum is a saint, Coco! both for helping the little ones and for puttin' up with you!

Just kiddin' Coco! I won't tell nobody else but I know you are a softie at heart. I am a great judge of characters, I mean character and you and your pack ROCK for bein' well, NICE!

I might have felt the same about the bed though

Thor said...

What a wonderful job you, your mumster and dadster have done helping those doggies that need help.


hero said...

Hi Coco,

Whilst you're complaining about the house guests but I think deep down you're glad they came to stay with you. That's your way of showing them love... BOL!

Licks, hero

The OP Pack said...

We wondered where this post was going - we read with great interest - AND we think you have had some pretty neat irritants. We will await the arrival of #4.

PLay bows, the OP Pack

Lorenza said...

Hi, Coco!
You and your mom are so nice helping those doggies in need!
I can't wait to see your guest # 4!
Kisses and hugs

chicamom85 said...

CoCo your Mom is so great for helping these doggies. You are very nice to be so patient and share, you are lucky because you always have Mommy after they leave and it must feel good for her to know these doggies are better because of her. That was a nice story with cute pictures. Thank you

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Clive said...

Oops, meant to confirm that as well!

The not-so-little man would be very happy to be known as 'D Man' as well!!

lots of woofs

Martha Basset said...

Hi Coco
We can see how annoying these incredibly cute little house guests could be!!!!
Clearly you should have been consulted and arrangements made for you to have a private suite for essential periods of time out!
We will try not to mention again how cute they are as we are sure this will only add to your annoyance.
love and kisses

It can be a pain to have unannounced guests in your house but you and your mum are doing a great job of helping the puppies.

None of them can compare to your cuteness though!

Chester said...

Hiya Coco! I would like you to stop on over to my blog and pick up an inspiring award.You inspire me to be downright silly-which believe it or not is not necessarily automatic for me. Oh, OK-who am I tryin' to kid? Anyway, you definitely help the process plus you and your Mum inspire me to help the less fortunate until they can get back on their feet again. No matter how irritatin' it might be.
Happy weekend, Coco!
Chester ;0=)

Mack said...

All I can say is, those irritants sure were cute!

Brownie said...

Coco, it is so sweet and generous of you to tolerate the little brats that your mumster brings in your household! We're sorry to hear about #2.... so sad...

Cloud the Wonder Dog said...

Hi Cocorue! Thanks fur stopping by my blog. It's very nice to meet you. You are such a little cutie, and it looks like you have a great blog! Your mom sounds like a wonderful person, make sure you give her lots of kisses!
