|Chewy Nhỏ & Solo Nhỏ Xíu|
|Mommy gave Solo a hair cut on June 19, 2012|
Solo Nhỏ Xíu was named after Han Solo the space smuggler. Solo might not be a space smuggler but he is a sock smuggler. I told him we're not allowed in our uncle's room. But he is sneaky and slides into Uncle Rob's room and steals one sock at a time. He brings it back to my bed too. I thought I might be blamed for the sock theft but mom knew who really did it. He is catching on pretty fast with the other house rules. No going to the bathroom in the house. No bringing outside toys into the house. No inside toys outside of the house. No scratching on the door. He is a really fast learner. However, I contribute his fast learning to a great teacher... his big bro!
Solo is an orphan just like Han Solo. My brother was born by a breeder, bought and surrendered. After being surrendered he was sent to a foster home to await adoption. The Yorkshire Terrier National Rescue (YTNR) and Solo's foster mom took really good care of him. His foster mom taught him how to sit and go potty outside while the YTNR showcased Solo's adoption on their website

I met my bro for the first time on June 15, 2012. This is the same day I was adopted, too. I was adopted on June 15, 2008. What a coincidence, right?!? This will definitely be a party day for both Solo and I!
June 15th will be now dubbed Adopt a Yorkie Day in my house! Woof woof!

Solo is also learning his commands in Vietnamese. I consider myself a bilingual dog, English and Vietnamese, and Solo will be too. I admit I have been a bit defiant since my bro has arrived but I am trying to be a good role model. I am currently helping my bro with the command lay down, nằm xuống. He just loves to ngồi and never nằm xuống unless he wants to sleep.
He is a great walker too. Solo loves to follow me when we go for walks. We just sniff and walk and sniff some more. Ahhhh! It is good to be a dog!
|Mmmmmmmmmm, Paw Patch Pastries is furtastic!|
My bro and I each received a blue pale with a variety of cookies in a variety of shapes, colors and sizes. I love the visual stimulation. Solo did too and he went for the biggest and brightest treat in his pale.
Carla Ocfemia, owner and chef, also made special cookies for Solo and I. She made a bone with our names and a few woofalicious paw prints, flip flops and martini glasses. I know Solo and I will save the martini glasses for Yappy Hour. Woof! Thanks Carla and the Paw Patch team for making and hand delivering a special treat to my new bro and I. Woof woof! Four paws go way up for Paw Patch Pastries! The cookies were a great way to celebrate my new brother's arrival.
Now, I think I am ready for a nap with my bro. After all, we had a long car ride home, I have been training him in a new language, I taught him how to wrestle and have fed him gourmet cookies. Now I get to dream about chasing squirrels and eating more gourmet treats while snuggling with Solo.
.... keep wandering!
