two cute!

Let me introduce you to a couple of cute creatures.

One of them is the 'Chief Chirpa' Bearbrick (above), which is based on an Ewok character from Star Wars. It's part of a set of 5 which includes Teebo, Paploo, Lumat and Romba.

The first time I saw Ewoks in the movie 'Episode VI: Return of the Jedi', I thought they were cute and mischievous – an irresistible combination.

The other is my new dog, Hogan (above), a two-month old teacup chihuahua that weighs less than half a pound.

I have always wanted a teacup chi-pup for as long as I can remember. I wanted a dog that I could sneak inside malls in a messenger bag, one that ate only a spoonful each meal and used very little of those expensive dog shampoos. In my mind, I had a clear picture of what that dog would look like.

Then I finally found him at Ichibon Kennel. So you could say that I loved him even before I saw him. :-)
