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. :-)

Oh my goodness. You are killing me with the cute factor! Hogan is absolutely adorable. Looking at his sweet little face makes me want to run out to the nearest pet store and get one of my own. A perfect moniker for this little guy.

Chief Chirpa rocks, too.

Hi, Carrie! Nice of you to drop by. Hogan is not only adorable, he's very smart, too! :-)

Adorable dog. My girlfriend and I had a chihuahua for a short amount of time. They are cute, but rascals.

And I love the Ewok Bearbrick!

LOLZing the name! Like naming him Dagul! But Hogan is more shala.

Actually, he was named after Hogan shoes (which I love). The Hulk Hogan reference is purely coincidental. :-D

aPuN, love the pic. Which reminds me, I still have to get my hands on those new Pepsi bears. :-)
