Three's a charm!

"Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl . . "

Lola, Grimm and Fiver -- Grimm still takes center stage!

We adopted Lola in July of 2006 to expand our chihuahua family. Lola, like Fiver, was a rescue dog from Chihuahua-Rescue.com. She was rescue from Hurricane Katrina in Louisana. She is bigger than both the boys, a sturdy eight pounds and loves to wrestle with Fiver. And not the easiest to get on a lease, as many can attest. She is part of the reason we recently put a fence around the yard.

In 2001, We were looking for a friend for Grimm when we found Fiver on Chihuahua-Rescue.com, a site hosted by Chihuahua Rescue and Transport. CRT is a non-profit organization committed to finding good homes for great dogs.

Fiver is a full-blooded Chihuahua who was abondoned in Louisana and placed in a doggie foster home in Alabama. Chihuahua Rescue and Transport drove him up to Tennessee where we met with the CRT volunteer and made the acquaintance of Fiver.

Although shorter than Grimm, he is a bit stockier (weighs a whopping 6 pounds) and is not quite as fast as Grimm. Fiver is a very loving dog and we are so glad we could give him a good home.

Fiver and Grimm love to wrestle and play together. And for some inexplicable reason, Fiver likes to lick Grimm's ears.

It's hard to get Fiver to sit still for a picture, which is why we have so few. He has a serious case of the wiggles. Fiver's name came from a character in one of Lou's favorite books, "Watership Down".
