Dobby


Dobby, on the left, and Scarlett love to play tug-of-war with this toy, known as Long Dog.  This picture was taken last September and Scarlett is quite a bit bigger now, about the same size as Dobby.  Dobby is a purebred Chihuahua, but he is big for his breed.  He is 22 inches long and weighs 14 pounds.  He is four years old and full of energy.  He lives with his Mom and Dad, Scarlett and three cats.  Before Scarlett joined the family, Dobby mostly played with Merlyn, also known as Brudder, the male cat. Dobby can be quite mischievious, though he is not destructive.  He is really good at finding food, any kind of food, and has been known to make the cats' dinner disappear.  He is having quite a time trying to keep up with Scarlett now, as she has been known to make Dobby's dinner disappear.  One of Dobby's very favorite games is Chase and he and Scarlett chase each other all over the house. Dobby's very favorite toy is a stuffed monkey, called Monkey, oddly enough. Dobby really loves Monkey and watching him with it can get quite embarrassing at times. Dobby loves to sit in his Mom's lap and was quite relieved to find out that both he and Scarlett can fit there at the same time. Dobby hasn't been blogging lately.  He needs his Mom to help him blog and his Mom has cancer.  You can go here to give her some words of encouragement.

                              Dobby and Scarlett both fit in Mom's lap.
                              It is the very best place for a nap.
                                      They share their toys
                                      For lots of joys,
                              Then play chase through the house until they need a new nap.
