Who's number one on the Chihuahua Reddit?

This sweet baby girl!  (Not this picture, though - Alan posted a different one.)

That's only one of Esme's recent achievements.  Alan has discovered that she can count to four!  At 10:00 AM, he gets his mid-morning snack and so do the doggies; he will have an apple or pretzel chips and hummus, something like that, while they get a Sargento cheddar/colby/jack cheese stick to share.

Alan cuts their cheese stick into twelve cubes, so four pieces per dog, and when he gives it out, he mixes up the order so that with each round of noms, everyone gets a chance to be first and no one is always last.  Everyone knows when it's time to have their cheese cubes, and lines up around his desk chair.  Esme stands on her hind legs with her front paws propped up on Alan's leg.  He says that whenever she gets her fourth cube, regardless of what order they're being issued and whether or not there are still cubes on his desk, she hops down and scoots away to conduct other important puppy business.  The boys hang out a while, hoping he might have extra cheese somewhere in reserve, or feel like giving out other nibbles, but not Esme. She knows four, and when she's given her fourth cheese, she's off!


  • Of COURSE she's and brains...just like her momma (and grandmamma)
