If I can bark, then I can blog, it sounds like bark. My name is el Jefe (the boss in Spanish), I own a family and have found something that all you dogs and cats out there should know about. They call it the HotHouse, I call a dog's best friend! It's pretty simple, all you have to do to use it is to walk up next to it and start barking. that's how I get my family to set me up. I'm a bit vertically challenged and need help getting on to the SoQi Bed. It has three Hothouses in one spot, makes me warm and cozy all over just thinking about it. As a Chihuahua, I can get very cold pretty quick during the winter. Not to boast, but I hold the Vermont record for going out and doing my business and getting back inside. As long as someone is right by the door, I can get in and out in 20 seconds. I wanted to get an automatic door, but too many other neighborhood animals were making themselves at home if you know what I mean.
I have a little hip problem, and going up and down stairs can be very painful. I found using the HotHouse not only warms me up, but provides pain relief from my aches and pains. I like the Hothouse so much, I started selling them. I admit it is a challenge, there is not a single dog I have talked to that has a credit card. all of them have to either "borrow" a credit card from a family member, or try to trade me for bones or treats. I found out that if you explain it to your family, the one with the credit card, they will get one and think they are helping themselves stay or be more healthy. They don't realize it was your idea and that you really want it to stay nice and cozy during the winter. Believe me I know a fair amount about staying cozy. (See my photo gallery with pictures of me and my friends relaxing with the houthouse.) I have tried the chi machine, it's a bit of a challenge to stay on. It is fun, a little like riding a bucking bronko. My friend Emmalee found that it can also be a nice way to relax and have fun. I'm sure you're not suppose to do it like that, but she does it anyway.
I have to go now, it's my turn to carpool to the vet (ha, ha). I tease my friends that I'll drive them crazy if they come with me. Adios amigos, Vaya con Dios!!
