Mama's Baby Girl

The best thing you can say about Martha — and the thing that supercedes all other things — is that she has her priorities straight: she loves her some mama.

10 other things you can say about Martha: she
  1. is (spoiled) ROTTEN to the core — wants ALL the attention, ALL the time
  2. thinks she's a big dog — gives those horses what for
  3. is a chow hound that doesn't chew her food — her teeth have improved eating dry food
  4. is afraid of storms and the camera, like her best bud, Chula — I had to be very sneaky shooting the video
  5. still has a lot of puppy left in her — mouthy
  6. is crate trained — a HUGE plus with our schedules, since we're still a little spotty on the whole housebreaking thing
  7. has grown and gained more than a pound (see #3)
  8. is SUPER smart and fast — this is the kind of dog that could be trained to do obstacle course races and such
  9. has terrier breath (like Cindi) that could stop a train
  10. LOVES peppermint Altoids (like Chula) — helps with #9

It's been a long time since a dog has chosen me, and the first time I've ever had a little dog. Martha makes me laugh, and I love her to pieces.

I am so glad you have "your" own dog!! She is so cute, and sounds like so much fun. I am glad you are enjoying her so much!

There is stuff you can add to their water to make the breath issue a little less icky.
I've tried it with the big dogs and it seems to help.

Awww, adorable video. Martha holds her own, eh?
I think it's great that you've found each other.
I'm still looking for my special little dog and haven't made that connection yet, even though it's been several months now. I hope she or he finds me soon :)
