On Your Mark! Get Set! Go!

Tiny Dog will be kicking ass in the Chihuahua Race in a couple of weeks. We've been doing some training and I think she has a good chance. She's not getting any sort of people food or treats. Just her dog food and Dinovite mixed with yogurt. A couple of times a day, Sweety takes a piece of bacon or something tasty and waves it in front of her face. Then he walks 35 feet away and I let her loose to go get it. If she wins the regional race in Orlando, I may quit my job to devote myself to her training for the national race in California.

One of my friends at work got canned yesterday. I'm pretty bummed about it. I get to where I like talking to someone and then they go away. He was fired over some stupid shit and I hope they don't give him a hard time about collecting unemployment.

My supervisor (aka Bitch with a Giant Camel Toe) was promoted today! Woo hoo! Not that it really means anything to me because as of tomorrow I was being moved to another team with a new supervisor. (My friend was supposed to be moved too and was going to sit beside me. Wah!) I have a feeling that the new supervisor won't be any better than the last because they are thick as thieves. My old supervisor is now one of the top dogs at our site. This just proves that evil wins.

You know what I think is hilarious? When Chi Chi is asleep on my lap and I'm eating something like chips or crackers and crumbs dust all over her like tasty dandruff. It's cute. Thanks to the Dinovite, the bitch's hair is growing back so there's lots of places for crumbs to hide.

Do you remember these things? Popples? My sister and I had them when we were kids. Cute stuffed animals that you could turn inside out and they'd look like a ball. Someone has taxidermied a dog and cat together in such a manner that you can turn it inside out to reveal the other animal. I haven't decided if that disturbs me or if I want one.

My twitter addiction is growing. I feel compelled to read tweets during any spare time and to send in my twitters on a regular basis. You people that haven't signed up yet need to so you can amuse me with your goings-on during the day!

My Chihuahua could kick your Chihuahua's ass in a race any day!

Actually probably not. Carmen doesn't "do" running. She just sits there and waits for everyone to come to her.

Mike - The semi-starvation... I mean "no-treat" diet goes a long way towards getting Tiny motivated.

Oh I hope Tiny wins and then you will come to CALIFORNIA!!!
What part of California is the Race going to be in, Chickie??
If it's Los Angeles, maybe I'll get to meet you "in person"...!

here today, gone tomorrow said...

Go Tiny Dog!!!!

Yeah, twitter...another time sink. I share the addiction.

Elise said...

Good Luck Tiny Dog!

Patti said...

Oh I can't wait to see how Tiny Dog does (you'd better not be pulling our leg either dammit)

I never saw those toys but i'm a good bit older than you *ahem*

Does ChiChi get a gold medal and a hug for racing?

Flaming Popples would be funnier, light 'em up and watch 'em turn into a pile of ashes.

I had something to say, but I just looked at the inside-out thing and it threw me for a minor loop.

bekah said...

Please tell me someone will be video taping the Chihuahua race...

themom said...

GO TINY GO!!!! And I must be having major brain farts - I don't remember the popples! Just shoot me now.

Joey Polanski said...

I dont remembr Popples neithr.

Ocourse, we ALL remembr Puberty Barbie, dont we?

The Phosgene Kid said...

No chickie? Hope you aren't beating your Blog like a baby seal!!

Chickie said...

Lady of the Hills - The race will be in San Diego. If I fly across the country, it wouldn't be too much of a stretch to get in a car and drive a couple of hours to meet you and Sweetie!

here today, gone tomorrow - I can't go to sleep without checking twitter. If I wake up in the night, I have to look at it then too.

Elise - Thank you!

Patti - Definitely not pulling your leg! We are seriously training over here!

The Phosgene Kid - Chi Chi isn't going to race but will get a hug for helping cheer Tiny on. Flaming Popples would be fun. You could swing 'em by the tail.

Rich Championable - Interesting, huh?

bekah - Oh, hell yes!

themom - Tiny will run like her life depends on it! I think the Popples are making a comeback. I swear I saw them in the store the other day.

Joey Polanski - Thankfully, I missed out on Puberty Barbie. That could have been traumatizing.

The Phosgene Kid - I'm here. Just lazy.

Ginamonster said...

I LOVED my sister's popple. She had one JUST like the one in the picture. And I think you are right, they may be making a comeback. But like My little pony and strawberry shortcake, they may be a little different. you know, taller and thinner.

The inside out dog/cat may haunt me for a long time.

When is the national championship? I'll be making the trip to SD in August. Maybe it will be the same weekend!

Knowing you read them obsessively makes me want to twitter more...

Chickie said...

Ginamonster - I'd noticed that Strawberry Shortcake got a major makeover. I prefer her as she was when I was a kid.

I can't get the dog/cat out of my head. Where you see it coming out of the back is really sticking with me.

It's the last weekend in August. I'm going to have Tiny do some swimming to build up her muscles.

Yes. You need to twitter more!
