I love my Bean

This is Nala "Bean". She is a chihuahua toy terrier mix who's 5 and she is spoiled rotten. I took all of these pictures last night while she was curled in between my legs. How is it that something that barely weighs 4 pounds can produce so much heat? We often joke that she goes Nuclear the moment her eyes close. We fight over her in the winter to keep us warm and push her away during the hot summer months. I love how her feet are all curled up in that first picture. I got a new camera right before Thanksgiving and Nala has become my model. Sometimes she cooperates, but most time she just looks at me out of the corner of her eye. I've loved practicing with her though because it has improved my reflexes and helped me understand when I should take the picture to capture the shot I wanted. Case in point, my last photo:
How scary and pathetic is that? She wasn't too thrilled that I woke her up with my bright flashes and she could not stop yawning. I have never known a dog to yawn so much. Life is so hard being a Bean, LOL. She looks like a laughing hyena. And that folks is my dog. We love her to death and she definitely makes us smile each and every day.

She's such a cutie pie!!!! I can't imagine having a dog as tiny as her! Emma puts out a ton of heat, too. She's a great leg warmer! Give Nala Bean a smooch and a snuggle for me!

OH my is she a cutie pie!!! I use my Halle Bear as a model a lot too. We have little dog fever right now as our 'chynna doll' pug has been gone nearly a year...this might put us over the edge!
