We have been enjoying the sunny and warm weather by spending lots of time outside playing in our new pool.

I just entered to be Portland's Next Top Dog Model. You can see my entry posted in the store at Lexi Dog in The Pearl (on 10th between Flanders & Glisan).
We all know how I love to shop at Lexi Dog, they have the cutest clothes and everyone is so friendly there. So, when we saw their contest for Portland's Top Dog Model 2009, I had to enter. It is also a fundraiser for The Oregon Humane Society so that's a really good cause too.
Be sure to watch Andy Carson live on KPTV 12, early morning Friday June 5th, when the top 10 finalists (10 small dogs and 10 large dogs) will be chosen. I sure hope one of them is me!
The questions were pretty easy and mom printed some photos of me to include with my entry.
Here's how I answered, my answers are in red:
My name is Pinto Bean Sellers , I am 1 years old.
I am a Chihuahua (breed) and I weigh 6 lbs.
To me, a dog's life should be filled with:
hugs and kisses, walks, friends, playtime, treats, belly kisses, naps and shopping at Lexi Dog.
I would describe my personal Style as:
Handsome, rugged, outdoorsy, athletic, a real chick magnet.
My best feature is: If I had to pick only one it would be my personality.
My "motto" about life is: "Aim high!"
I entered the TopDog Model contest because:
My parents are pushing me into modeling and acting.
Why I think I should become Portland's Next Top Dog Model:
I have my own blog http://www.chihuahuaquarterly.blogspot.com/
I have been featured on http://www.famouschihuahua.com/
and this is the next logical stop for my career path.
I think I have a pretty good chance. What do you think?

I have been super busy lately so I haven't been posting much here on my blog. I do have lots of news to share though.
First of all, the weather has been great! Warm and I am loving it. Some days I only need to wear a light shirt and some days nothing at all.
About a month ago I spent a whole week with G-ma and G-pa while mom & dad went to Hawaii. That was fun. I get to do anything I want and they feed me special foods that I don't get at home. I think they called it ice cream.
G-ma & G-pa bought us a swimming pool for the backyard so hopefully this week we will get to fill it up and play.
Yes, I said us. The BIG NEWS is that my girlfriend Cocoa has come to live with us! Yay! I'm jumping up and down for joy and I'm so happy. She loves to play and we wrestle around all the time now. I have to be careful with her though because she's smaller than me and well, you know, a girl.
She is going to live with us forever and ever and ever. Her other family couldn't take care of her anymore and so they gave her to me (I mean us). We are all really happy about it. Well, except for the cats.
Last weekend mom, dad, Cocoa and I all went for a really long ride in the car. We went to visit some family in Washington. Mostly it was just riding in the car and stopping at different places along the way to rest. The back of the car was set up nice though so we could play and look out the windows. Mostly we sat in mom's lap or sometimes dad's to help him drive. We got lots of treats along the way but we were happy to get home to our backyard.
We have been busy working at the store and watching customers. Our good friends come in every day to visit and bring us treats which we really, really like.

Yes, I am still here. I've just been taking a little break from the blog. I've been busy with other stuff. I do have some exciting news to share as soon as mom takes some more pictures. I have to have pictures because you won't believe it if you don't see it for yourself!
I discovered this super soft and warm blanket at our new store. I really like to curl up in the chair with it. Sometimes I'll hide under it and then I can still see through the holes so when customers come in I can keep an eye on them without them knowing.
