Ever slept with a Chihuahua?
Almost every night around 2 a.m., either Mike or I head to the couch to sleep. Why you ask... problems in the relationship? Nope. Bad gas? Sometimes, but nope. The answer--two Chihuahuas.
If you've ever considered adopting one of these cute creatures, you must know that all Chihuahuas insist on sleeping with you under the covers.
What they don't tell you in doggie books--even though they are tiny, they think they are mighty, and therefore, take up more space than you thought possible. Along those same lines, they put off more body heat than a fat man in the Florida Everglades. Buckeye actually gets sweaty armpits. Weird, right?
And when their little bodies get too hot at night, they'll steal your pillow and become dead weight so you can't move them.
For the wedding, I signed us up for King sheets and a comforter even though we only have room for a Queen bed right now. Wishful thinking, I guess.
By the way-I didn't fall asleep until 4 a.m. All the while, the doggies were snoring as happy as can be.
