Pet Name: Winnie Owners: Marsha and Bernie Winograd How We Met: Breeder online. Our 18-year-old dog had to be put down because of liver failure. My husband said, "NO MORE DOGS!" After taking one look at the 1 1/2-pound dog that daughter, grandkids and I brought home, he was in love. Now he is Winnie's favorite person. Breed: Short-haired Chihuahua Age: 3 years Weight: 4.2 pounds Home: Forest Hill Favorite Food: Dental treats and Milk Bones. She doesn't get table food. Favorite Pastime: Looking out our third-floor condo sliding-glass door barking and growling at everyone outside. Best Trick: None, but she will turn over on her back with her paws straight up when a person is near hoping for a belly rub. Winnie Likes: Belly rubs, sitting on laps, sleeping in her favorite bed, car rides, treats and visiting with her cousins (daughters' four dogs). Winnie Dislikes: Being left alone and vacuum cleaners. If Winnie had a motto for life it would be: Chihuahuas are so cool and awesome. Just look at me! Always remember to treat your pet with love and kindness because we love our pet "people" unconditionally.
