My Pups

When we found Tequi, the guy on the street told us that he had been beat up a lot by another street dog, so of course he has some issues and now doesn’t really “play” with other dogs, though maybe he will come around. He does love to play with us though! We taught him how to sit and shake super quickly.

And Chica must have been abandoned recently because she wasn’t fixed, she hadn’t had puppies, and she is about 7 years old. If she was always a street dog she would have for sure had puppies by now. Maybe she was too old for the idiot owners that had her before. She is also very timid and submissive and we’re thinking she was abused before, but she plays now! She also learned how to sit after about 100 tries.

Aren’t they cute? So happy and without a care in the world.

The bone Chica is chewing is made from Orbee-Tuff material like THESE ones, it lasted about 2 months before she chewed of a part and she is a super chewer. She’s only licking it in the video because I put peanut butter in the hole. I highly recommend them.

Montse - Hi there!

I just found your blog through the Freshly Pressed section of WordPress. I love your pictures, especially the ones of dogs. I love dogs and I have to say that yours are lovely! I’m sorry to hear that the ones you adopted had been abandoned, but I’m glad that they’re on good hands now :). By the way, I noticed that Chica has really good teeth (or so it seems from the video) despite being seven years old. I’ve got an eight year-old German Shepherd half-breed and her teeth don’t look as nice as hers.

By the way, don’t they use microchips in Chile? In Spain, if you own a dog, he/she must wear a microchip (I don’t know if that’s the right word, they actually wear it underneath the skin) or some kind of id (if I’m not mistaken) in case the dog gets lost or abandoned.

Anyway, keep up the good work!

LanaRenee - Thanks!
Some dogs do get the chips, but no one is going to take a dog off the street to find out if they have one or not. Lots of people even put collars with no id tag.. kinda defeats the purpose.
Chica’s teeth are actually not in good shape.. her front ones are worn down to almost nothing from all the chewing. She also nibbles her fur when she is nervous.
Thanks for stopping by!

CuppySkully - Oh my goodness, how cute!
I wish I could take great pictures like you.. *envious*
I took some pictures myself when I went to the dog shelter yesterday, but of course, the pictures were okay – not as ‘alive’ like yours.
Here are some of the pictures if you wanna take a look;
