This is Suki. I came down the stairs to take Alyce to dance and found her like this.  Jordan had left for a job interview about an hour before I left and there she was waiting for him to come home.

We’ve had her for 7 years.  She was supposed to be a family dog.  I mean, she still is a family dog, but she prefers Jordan and always has.  (She will take Pato and I if Jordan isn’t home, but Jordan is her love.) She also was supposed to be 1 when we adopted her but she started going gray a couple of years later.  (You can’t tell in this picture because of the filter but) Her face is gray, her bottom is gray, her chest is gray and she is slowly starting to lose her teeth.

(Another day when she was waiting for Jordan to come home.)

I don’t know what will happen when she comes to the end of the road.  I hope it isn’t for many many years, my son is going to be devastated when the time comes.  I’ve heard that some chihuahuas (she’s a mix) can live long long lives.

(That picture is one day when I went to wake up and Suki popped her out from under the covers right next to him.)

He calls her his queen, his little queen.

That little dog has come so far since we adopted her.  She HATED little kids when she first came to live with us.  Nano was 1 and Alyce was 3.  I had to really work with them on just giving her space and not trying to touch her when she was sleeping or eating.

I don’t blame her for being cranky.  I call her one of our rescues because she was posted free on Craig’s List.  I didn’t need another dog but I was worried about where she’d end up.  When I met the mom and her daughters at McDonald’s, they handed her to me.  She started barking and one of the daughters (she was probably 11) smacked her upside the nose and told her to shut up.  I’d be wary of kids when one obviously had no trouble hitting me in front of someone they didn’t know.  I’d hate to see what had happened to her when no one was watching.  I asked what she ate (so I could gradually switch her to what I feed Junie Bee) and the mom said she loves tortillas but hot dogs make her sick.

What?  That’s what you feed her?

As my kids have gotten older, she is much better with them.  She also hasn’t been hit since that day, that may have helped with her attitude.

Jordan is her person.

There is no one else she would rather be beside.

I absolutely love watching those two together.

Do you have an animal who prefers one over another in your house?  You know who Suki prefers, Junie Bee is my shadow, and Woodstock, before he passed away a few years ago, decided Katiana was his person.

Have a beautiful day!
