Welcome to the dog section of BlessMyPets.com
The true inspiration of this entire site comes from our lost loving family member, Mikey. His picture is on the top right side of this page. He was a Min Pin Chihuahua. I have met a lot of Dogs in my time. All of them having their own unique characters. All of them have captured my heart and Mikey owns a good part of it.
Mikey came to us a young pup and we watched him develop into a mature very cool smart guy. We live in a split level house and I knew he was smart right away when very early on he would go get one of our other loves of our life, Timmy, because he knew that Timmy knew how to ask us to let them go outside. I guess I wasn’t smart enough to read his mind, but he was smart enough to use Timmy to let them out.
Since losing Mikey inspired me to put this site together, I will brag about him a little. On his Min Pin side, the breed was originally bred in Germany to hunt vermin such as rats. Living up to that part of his breed, Mikey managed to kill a few birds in our yard. His technique was to charge our the door as soon as we opened it and catch what he can before it flew over the 6 foot fence. He was very fast and I have seen him jump at least 4 feet. He caught a couple Quale and a Robin that way. I will mention here that we did not encourage it. In fact many times if I noticed the birds in the yard, I would scare them off before letting him out.
Another great quality about Mikey was his love for his human parents. He would actually hug me. His way was to lean his chest in on me. He was the only one of our little guys who did this. Incredibly the day we lost Mikey, Timmy saw I was hurting and came up to me on the couch and gave me the same type of hug. He never did before and never did again after that.
In case your wondering, the picture to the left is our Timmy. Another very smart dog. He is a full blooded Chihuahua.
