July 7, 2011
I named our little girl, Patches, in part for her patches of white (3 feet, chest, topside of neck) but also in part because I am a quilter and know how important it is to select the perfect patches to make a beautiful quilt, or in this case, a member of the family.
We are Cathy, Tom, and Patches, a 2 1/2yr old, 10lb, rescue "terrihuahua" who fills our home with abundant joy.
Patches had a great time with all the little chihuahuas&mixes like her. Tom and I laughed when we saw nearly all of them run and bark at the big dogs walking by the fence... such a pack mentality. Patches just looked up at us like, "what's going on?" We'd love to come to this well attended group in Aug, but our weekends that month are already booked with a home project. We may have a better chance in Sept. We enjoyed this wonderful group of really nice little-dog lovers. The organizers seemed to expect us and made us feel very welcome. We'll watch for the July meetup photos of Patches. Cathy
