Furry Fridays - Aimee from Irresistible Pets

Brought to you by Steph and Becky!
 Meet Aimee and her adorable Chihuahua, Chuy!!!

My name is Aimee and I blog at Irresistible Pets and Irresistible Icing. I have a Chihuahua named Chuy and he is what inspired me to start my pet blog, Irresistible Pets. I was going to write some sort of top tips post for Furry Friday but instead I’ve decided to dedicate this post to Chuy. Tomorrow, June 22nd, Chuy turns 4 years old.  He spent all of last weekend in the ER and was diagnosed with compressed disc space. We have a long road ahead of us as he needs further testing and possibly spinal surgery.
Up until now Chuy has been the most energetic, wild, and crazy little Chihuahua ever! Seeing him in pain and not as spunky is breaking my heart. I hope we he will recover and get back to driving me nuts!
Aimee and Chuy
There are a million reasons why I think Chuy is irresistible but here are my top five.
1. Chuy is My Little Shadow
One of my favorite parts of the day is when I hear little paws pushing my office door open. I’m extremely grateful to work from home as an Instructional Designer. I LOVE it because I get to spend my entire day with Chuy sitting next to me. Every time I go downstairs or even to the bathroom, he follows me! I think it’s adorable and can’t imagine working in an office ever again.
2. Chuy Cheers Me Up
It’s true what they say about dogs making you feel happier. I can have the worst day but the minute I see Chuy or cuddle with him, I forget about it. He’s only been in my life for 3 years but he’s brought so much joy and happiness . . . and a few chewed up shoes but he’s worth it!
3. Chuy Understands Me
I know. That probably sounds nuts, right? I swear that Chuy understands me and what I’m going through. When I had my gallbladder removed a few months ago and was at home recovering, Chuy never left my side. He also never jumped on me as if he knew I was recovering. I can’t even put it into words. When I’m sad, he looks me right in the eyes as if he’s telling me “everything is ok.”
4. Chuy Made My Husband a Better Person
Chuy has changed my husband . . . not that he wasn’t already a great person before Chuy. He’s more compassionate, emotional, and kind. Chuy taught him how to love deeper. I never used to see my husband tear up at anything. Now if he hears a sad story about animals, I swear I see his eyes getting red lol.
5. Chuy Keeps Me Active
I love Chuy for making me take walks when I really didn’t want to. I love him for allowing me to discover new things in my city that I never knew existed! My favorite thing ever is to get in the car and just go exploring with Chuy.
Chuy isn’t just some little Chihuahua. He is family and he has changed me and everyone he meets in more ways than he’ll ever know. I love you so much little monster! Happy 4th birthday! (And many more!)
