Being the Obstacle


I dropped Mr. N off at his former foster family’s house so he could play for a few hours while I went to work. They always have a household full of dogs including foster dogs. The new addition to the household: The-Chihuahua Formerly Known As Prince. He’s an older Chihuahua mix. Possibly Pomeranian. He’s a very sweet and calm dog. Low maintenance (unlike some dogs who I could name). Happy to be where you are and content with short walks.

When I came to pick him up, a potential adopter had come to see TCFKAP. Or she thought she was anyway.

Mr. N thinks attention and adoration from everyone is his rightful due. Apparently, he was putting on quite the show for the adopter prancing about and showing off how cute he is. He probably pulled out his bag of tricks too.

Mr. N making new friends at the park.

His foster finally had to pick him up to let TCFKAP get some attention. Mr. N tried to stop another dog’s adoption!

So what do you say? Worst mischief ever?

In other news, Mr. N:

  • Turned off Netflix twice. Someone wants attention.
  • Was trying to play with a stuffed toy attached to a balloon at a friend’s store. Got tangled and it took me about five minutes to untangle him, the leash and the toy. Sadly, there is no video evidence.
  • Suddenly nudged me as we were walking. I look over at him puzzled then notice the dog sticking its head out of the car window. He was telling to tell me hey, I noticed the dog and I was good and didn’t bark. Where’s my treat?

    I keep posting in the wrong place (for Facebook) instead of blog comments so cut-and-pasting here. BOL! I love Mr N’s antics, he’s quite the charming fellow. And smart…if you don’t notice him being a good-boy, he’s sure to tattle on himself. Ha! Gives new meaning to “Teachers Pet.”

    Oh Mr N you need to let others get some attention once in awhile – especially pups still looking for a home.

    Turning off Netflix. Lol. Speaking of mischief Ruby recently locked herself in our car. My husband got out for two seconds and she hit the automatic lock. The air conditioning was running but the keys were inside. We had to call a locksmith to get her out. Good grief

    Silly Mr. N, but then again, when he’s that cute, of course everyone wants to see him! I hope that TCFKAP was a good match for the adopter.

    Oh, dear Mr. N.! He *is* so adorable and *should* get all the attention! I love TCFKAP’s name! Too good! And I’m still chuckling here at the thought of Mr. N. tangled in with the balloon…boy, I’m glad he didn’t go for a balloon ride!!!
