Brother and Sister

SUMMARY: Ermahgerd, what have I gotten myself into?

I had applied for these cute brother & sister dogs, smaller, which I'd been saying I wanted, and heard nothing, so Chip came here on a trial basis. Now I've been accepted and they're arriving today! When it rains it pours!

Meet Davril and Poisson!

I had a great time when I first met them; they are soooooo cuuuute but very sharp!  They learned how to shake hands in about 10 seconds each, just with a little clicker work because they were already familiar with that. And they're a handy size for carrying in a small car, or for bathing, and so on. I am thrilled!

Their current foster mom, who is French, taught me a bunch of words, like small dog is chien petite, and also what Poisson d'Avril means!


  1. Are they some sort of Shiba mix? So cute, and yes, there is something just so nice (and portable) about smaller dogs. I was never really that into them until I got one, but now I think they rock.

    And did you seriously go from two to five dogs in the blink of an eye? lol Good luck and have fun with that! :)

    1. Thanks for the comment, Karissa. They ARE cute; that's why I borrowed their photo. Note the label at the bottom of this post; I'm crazy but not quite that crazy! :-)

    2. lol.... Should have known. Missed the label on my phone last night. ;o)

  2. So Cute dog. Look inteligen. Eye contact can tell something.
