Birdee and Bella get a new book.

Birdee, Bella and Beasley are three Chihuahuas owned by Denise Fain Bast. I imagine it’s Denise who will be doing the actual reading, though I’ve heard from several Chi owners that their dogs really do love to listen. Beasley isn’t in the picture. According to Denise,

Beasley has a mind of her own! Bella & Birdee are very ‘treat-motivated’ but Beasley just assumes you are up to something if you try to bribe her… smart?!! … With Bella & Birdee I can get a ‘head-tilt’ by just asking, “Want a treat?” So much fun!

    Love this picture…..and yes, a chihuahua baby will learn the magic word, whether it’s cookie, treat and even in my Bonnie’s case medicine LOL

    • That’s gonna be a whole ‘nother thing for me. Cats aren’t much on language. I think all Musette knows is “kitty,” “good kitty,” and “no.”

        you will find with your chi baby she will learn not only the spoken word, but your body language and even some hand signals.

    Love the pictures and story! My chi babies love to cuddle and be talked to.
