A Puppy Named Chorizo

I think it's been way too long since I've done a post on the most adorable puppy ever!! My daughter April's puppy Chorizo.

April sends me pictures all the time of Chorizo from her cell phone. The other day she tried to take Chorizo to the dog park but the ground was too wet due to all the rain so she took her to a regular park where she found out soon enough that Chorizo is a duck hunter!
There was a small pond with ducks in it and Chorizo went straight for it and barked and barked at them until she could take it no more and she dove in to go get them.

Now mind you, I'm not a dog person so I didn't know that dogs automatically know how to swim. Probably where the name dog-paddle comes from right? But my first though was, "Oh my gosh, how did you get her back?" Oh wait, it wasn't a thought; those words actually came out of my mouth. April very calmly told me, "She swam back to me Mom" I could here the "duh" even though she didn't say it :-)

This puppy is such a sweetheart with such a great personality and she loves everyone and immediately rolls over on her back for a belly rub!

And you know what else this puppy is? She's polite. April sent me this picture and I couldn't figure out what she was doing.
It kind of looks like story time at the library right? But what's actually happening is the lady in the picture brings puppy treats for the puppies and Chorizo was patiently waiting her turn! Isn't that amazing? I love this puppy!

I'm linking up to Mosaic Monday hosted by Mary at Little Red House. Please stop by and see what other mosaics everyone is sharing this week!

  11. Oh, how cute is this little puppy! And with such good manners...shows she has polite, responsible parents.

    I have to tell you...those ducks don't look all that afraid! I'm thinking they weren't taking her seriously, so she decided to get a bit closer!
