Tecuani Dulce Muchacho (Chili) - added May 2008
Chili came into hour home! On Thursday 28.2.2008 Johanna drove to Helsinki to pick up a new family member. She had agreed meeting on 3 o’clock but she was so excited that was there already 2 o’clock. They met on Ikeas parking place. :) After a long hour sitting in a car waiting another cars owner to come from shopping she finally arrived. She said “hi” and showed Johanna the cutes thing! It was Dulce. He was so small and so scared! She was in this cutest pink picnic basket looking basket and Maria (the woman who brought him to us) picket him up. He has gray and yellow sweater on and Maria put the hood on because it was cold. Dulce was trembling because he was so scared or cold. I took him to my arms and it was love from the first moment! I took him into my car because I didn’t want to keep him outside for long. When I started driving back home Dulce was weeping and wining in his basket. But if I put my finger to him he started biting it :) I continued driving and when he noticed that wining doesn’t help he started biting the basket where he was in. After that he started biting his towels and blankets. I knew he will be quite a character.
March 2008 - When we saw him we knew right away what we are going to call him. We had few options in our minds but it was quite obvious then. We are going to call him Chili. He is such a spicy puppy that it was very easy decision.
March 2008 - Today we went outside a bit. I made him overall so that we could start learning going out now that it was warmer day. He took only few steps on the snow and then he wanted to go in.
March 2008 - Now it's time to go to sleep so good night to everyone! Talk to you later!
