Something You Should Know....


Those of you that know me know that I am a very honest person. Brutally honest at times, and sometimes this gets me in a pickle. HOWEVER. I feel I haven't been completely honest with you guys/gals. While it is hard to get to know someone via the blogosphere, there's a part of me you should know about. And here it is. 

I am part Chihuahua. 

Umm....Yeah. MAYJAH news for you to take in, but it's time you knew. Before I was corrupted by that beotch in science class in 4th grade, I was CONVINCED 100% that I was part wolf and humans and animals could co-exist in the same body. I am an animal whisperer of sorts, so I thought it was only natural that I be a part of the animal kingdom. I used to have a Chihuahua named "Bubba" and we were kind of like soulmates (Don't worry Carissa, you're still soultwin numero uno). Ok so all of the following info is TRUE because it's from Wikipedia (baha my professors would choke and die if they read that!)

WHY JULIE IS PART CHIHUAHUA (brought to you by the folks at wiki):

  •  The Chihuahua’s history is a puzzling one as there are many theories surrounding their true origin. (I'm very mysterious, so I've been told. PLUS I have a diverse background.)
  • The Chihuahua was used in sacred rituals as they were considered holy to Pre-Colombian Indian nations. They were also popular pets to the upper class. (I mean this is just obvious. I'm kind of a big deal.)
  • Long-haired Chihuahuas are actually smoother to the touch, having soft, fine guard hairs and a downy undercoat, which gives them their fluffy appearance. (I have long hair and many people have told me it's super soft, and the  fluffiness is because of the static in the air)
  • The AKC describes the breed as, "A graceful, alert, swift-moving little dog with saucy expression, compact, and with terrier-like qualities of temperament." (DUH. If I had a nickel for every time someone called me "saucy" and "swift moving"...) The breed tends to be fiercely loyal to one particular owner, but may be attached to more. (Basically, I got yo' back! And I'm not a lyin' cheetah!) They do not always get along with other breeds.(Oopsies.)
  • tendency to bite when frightened. (I'm a huge scaredy cat and I will bite, kick, scream if I have to! IN other words...FIERCE)
  • Chihuahuas can also be at risk for hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar. (Sucks, but true!)
  • Chihuahuas are sometimes picky eaters, and care must be taken to provide them with adequate nutrition. (Ask anyone who knows me....)
  • Unfortunately, this breed doesn’t naturally handle cold weather well. There are a couple of different reasons for this, but the main reason comes from their history. The Chihuahua breed originated from the hot climate of Chihuahua, Mexico. In this hot climate, Chihuahuas didn’t need to deal with the cold. (NOW you understand all those posts I've been writing about HATING the miz cold! Plus I'm part Mexican, so it just furthers my point.
Aaaand, we might bear a strong resemblance to each other. I'm just sayin'.....

Has anyone ever told you that you look like an animal?!

Pee. Ess: Random Sidenote: I'm so embarrassed about the fact that Enrique Iglesias randomly came on my ipod this morning on the way to work...and I didn't skip it. I DANCED. And I flippin' love Taylor Swift. And Miley. Bite Me. Or I'll bite you since I'm a Chihuahua....

PEE PEE ESS. I'm not yappy. I swearz. The only time I'd consider myself yappy is when I was in college during sorority rush. But that wasn't real life. Obvi.


  1. Can we cuddle or would that be crossing the line?

    <3 T

  2. Yes yes. I can see this. But you aren't yappy that I can tell. Nor do you pee the floor. (I hope) But if you do it's ok. I've done it before too...

  3. Haha, you're too funny. Gotta say though, not a HUGE fan of chihuahuas. They're so yappy! I guess that's a generalization but you know. Are you yappy too?

  4. I just discovered you from a comment you left over at Speaking From the Crib. You are awesome. You could be my sister from another mister. I think that I might love you. How has it taken this long for us to be united? It's a travesty, really.

    I will be back, oh yes, I will.

    PS I'm not crazy, I swear!

  5. OH. EM. GEE. You were not kidding. Dying. You need some Jax in your life. You and my demon would love each other for ever and ever. Amazingness.

  6. I think I might be a chihuahua too: "Chihuahuas can also be at risk for hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar. Chihuahuas are sometimes picky eaters, and care must be taken to provide them with adequate nutrition."
    Tottally me!

  7. HAHAHAHAH you are too funny!


  8. omg, this is hysterical!

    it makes me miss bubba!!!!!

    you are part chihuahua. i agree. and your hair is RIDICULOUSLY soft.

  9. lol!thats so cute!

  10. In elementary school someone told me I looked like a giraffe. I suppose I have a long skinny neck. I like giraffes so if it was an insult I didn't get it.

  11. I left you something on my blog!


Leave Some Love...
