My Favorite Tea Cup

I love beautiful, delicate china tea cups. Especially if they have little pink roses dancing around the rim. I also have an absolute passion for the "Old Country Roses" pattern by Royal Albert, which I have a story to tell about in a future post. But for now I want to introduce you to my absolute FAVORITE tea cup of all time ~ my 3 1/2 pound chihuahua Jose'. Otherwise known throughout the household as Little Man {although I like to tell him he is BIG so as to build his self esteem!}. Afterall he has two miniature dachshund "sisters" he has to try to keep up with. Although as far as he's concerned they're just a couple of weenies!

He might be a little guy but he has a whole lot of personality and he loves his mommy more than anything or anyone in the whole world, which is what makes our furry babies such a comfort in life. He is the old fashioned apple head chihuahua and when we got him nearly 10 years ago at 8 weeks old and 1.2 pounds my young nephew, Brendan, 6 years old at the time, took one look at that round forehead and said to his mommmy,  "He must be really, really smart because he has a really big brain."  Children are so observant aren't they?

When he developed a heart condition about a year ago and I tried to explain it to my 4 year old granddaughter, Gabby, as a "bad heart" , being attached to the doggies around here, her little bottom lip came out and her eyes teared up and she said, "But...his heart is in the right place Grammy!" Well yes it is sweetheart. Can't argue with that!


  1. Hi Danette,
    You just started following my blog, so I thought I would check yours out. It seems we have a lot in common. I also have a love for creating, tiny dogs, and grandchildren! My little one is Selena - she is a white and black 7 pound Chihuahua. Gabby and Jose are adorable!!! The photo with Jose in the yarn is sooo cute! I'm looking forward to reading more of your beautiful blog.
    God Bless,
    Jane <><
