Guess who I got to see yesterday... Santa! I even got to sit in his lap with my brother Chen Po! We got to tell him what we wanted for christmas. What I really want is a special dog door into the magical fridge! Wouldn't that be great? Somehow I don't think I'm going to get that though so I will settle for lots of yummy treats. I am loving this christmas tree. I don't know why but mom put a gate around it though. I loved to grab the candy canes and munch away. I loved knocking the pretty balls off too, they made such a lovely crashing sound. Mom spoiled all my fun.
I have been tagged by Summer
here are the rules to the game: The player with this game starts with “3 wishes he/she would love to get for Christmas” and also has a list of “3 wishes he/she definitely does not want for Christmas”. Then he/she tags 5 friends and list their names. The ones who get tagged need to write on their blogs about their Christmas wishes, as well as state this rules clearly, then tag 5 more victims. And the ones who tag need to leave a comment that says, “You’ve been Christmas tagged!” in their comments and tell them to read your blog. Easy right?
Here goes, I would love to get: FOOD that I'm not supposed to get, a pink princess outfit, and to get to go everwhere with mom.
Things I don't want: boring dog food on christmas, another bath, and someone sleeping in my favorite place to sleep.
I have tagged: Mary-Margeret, Meeshka, Cyrus, Daisy, and Cubby.
Only 8 more days till Christmas!!

This is one of my favorite faces to make when mom gets that *#*# camera out. She is having the hardest time getting photos of me in less I'm asleep. She thinks it's because I'm white (which really makes no sence at all becasue she can always get GREAT photos of my white poodle sister, Josie) and that the flash reflects off my fur. My eyes always look green in the photos too.

Don't tell her but It's really beacuse I don't want her to think ANYTHING with me is easy. She has taken in many dogs of all ages and she is finding me the hardest to train. I potty trained over night, but the rest of it I make sure to make VERY difficult for her. She is lucky if I sit when asked to. We pekingese are a very unique breed of dog as far as our temperments go. The work that mom would say describes me the most is stubborn, but I say it's just because I'm a princess and princesses should be able to do anything and everything we want whenever we want to do it.

As you might beable to notice from my photos that I can never seem to stay white. When mom is with me I just mainly stay on the couch or on her lap, but as soon as she leaves the room I turn into a magic puppy who knows no bounds. I climb into the trash every chance I get (I'm the only dog who doesn this here) I have learned how to get into the diaper pail (to get my favorite treat) and how to push open the bathroom door where the diaper pail is kept. Right now mom has confined me to the living room in less she is watching me each second because I do this stuff even if she is in the house but only in another room. Then, when mom discovers I have something naughty she tries to take it away. That makes me SO mad so I hang on for dear life and GGGRRROOOWWWLLL! She has tried all the "turn the pup over on it's back to show dominance" stuff but that just makes me madder! I have even lightly bit my big human sister because she tried to take something away from me. She wasn't mad at me though, and I didn't actually hurt her, but mom was sure mad. If one of the human kids have something I want I just try to take it away. I can't be in the same room with them when they eat because I will NOT quit trying to steal it untill it is mine. This is a new thing for mom and she is getting frustrated but will never give up.

When she has to leave the house and I don't get to go she puts me in a large crate so I don't get into trouble when she is gone. I don't mind the crate at all though. It has a comfy bed, and food, water, and toys in it but she can't make herself keep me in there when she is home. Mom thinks part of the "problem" with my naughty behavior is the fact that we pekes have been royalty for over a thousand years and we KNOW it. We weren't meant to follow orders. Both Chen Po and Tian-Shi (my pekingese siblings) are little angels compared with me, but mom thinks it's because they both were rescued from bad situations but I have always had an easy life. They both are a bit stubborn but nothing compared to me, and boy am I proud of that. A princess should always be the best at what she sets her mind out to do. (this is from Bai-Jin's mom: If anyone has ideas I sure would appreciate the help)

So, how do you like my bed of choice? Its the back of a toy dumptruck. I have all kinds of cool, soft, fluffy beds, but this is the one I like the most. Why you ask? Well, mom just lives to be confused, that's why. I love to throw her for a loop. I am the biggest, most spoiled diva you'll ever meet and refuse to mind most of the time. I love to growl when I don't get my way and will steal anything from anybody. I usually throw a fit if another dog is sleeping on the bed I have chosen to sleep on, but that was before I found my dumptruck bed. Mom put a tiny pillow in it because she says it looks rather hard to sleep on but I was quite disgusted. I grabbed that pillow and threw it off my precious bed.
You might notice that my toes are in need of a good washing, but that is certainly NOT my fault. After you hear what injustices mom has done to me you will truly understand why I deserve to be spoiled 24/7. It was raining this morning and mom FORCED me outside to go potty!! Can you believe that?! I refused to walk out inb the rain and the rain! After a few minutes she let me come back in, but I'm still ticked at her and wont give her the chance to do that to me again. I don't bite mind you, but I do growl like a tiger (I know I'm supposed to be a dog, but I was born with a cat's idea of the world) and I stand my ground like...What did mom call it..A mule. That must be a very beautiful and graceful animal because I am nothing less than a queen. Infact my name tag even says that. It says "Bai-Jin, Queen of the Pekingese." I think that is too limiting because everyone knows am really Queen of everything I see.

I had way too much fun yesterday. I don't get to go out in public yet because I haven't had all my shots but I did get to play in the yard for a long time finally. It's been very rainy so I have only been able to go out for short periods of time. Just to go potty. However, yesterday I got to play out there. I even got to smell a sunflower. It made my nose tickle and I sneezed.

Mom thought she was going to beable to take some reall cute photos of me but boy did I make it hard for her. Every time she would move back to get a good shot I would chase after her feet and that camera! I even got running so fast that my body coudn't keep up with my feet and I tumbled and rolled on my back. I had almost too much fun. Afterward I took a nice long nap.

At My New Home
I flew all day saturday in a crate on the airplane. I flew all the way from New Orleans to Denver, then rode in a car for 5 more hours until I was finally home. We didn't get home untill around 11pm, and then after quick introductions went to bed. I slept with my new girl, Tempestt, and didn't have an accodent all night. I am already paper trained! We'll see if that lasts though.

Yesterday I had my 1st bath at my new home. I didn't exactoly care for it but I didn't make a fuss. I am such a calm girl, mom is really happy about that. After that bath mom decided she needed to use a hair dryer on me! What a terrible Idea! That thing, although it was quiet, was SCARY. I didn't cry but everytime mom relaxed her grip on me I shot off her lap like a lightning bolt! I'll get dry eventually anyway, but mom was worried I would catch a cold.

The kids hadn't realized how much sleep a pup like me needs. They all wanted to play with me all day, but mom has a rule. No one can mess with me if I'm sleeping. Such a good rule. Tian-Shi doesn't seem to know that rule though. She loves to play now and doesn't care if I'm sleeping or not. She is only 5 months old but is SO much bigger than I am. Chen Po will be one in December, but Tian-Shi is even bigger than he is. Mom says I'm going to get as big as Tian-Shi but Chen Po never will. He is something called a sleeve peke, whatever that is. Its hard to believe I'm going to ever be that big.

Here I am with my people brother, Dartagnan. From the look on his face I think he likes me. He is SO gently with me and loves to give me kisses. I have not a care or a fear in the world. The big poodles don't scare me in the least. They are all very nice to me and very carefull not to step on me. I hope they don't think I'm a foster dog because I'm here to stay. I came from such a wonderful breeder, Fran at BackForty Kennels, and am very differen't from the dogs mom usually takes care of. I have no fears to overcome. However, that also means I know no boundries and think I can fly. I jump off of everything I can find. It's so much fun to sail through the air although I need to work on my landings. Right now when I land I turn into a ball and roll. That scares mom SO much, she is afraid I'm going to break something. It's great to be a pup that has only known love. So very different than my new peke family. After all, what's to be scared of in life. I have a people and canine family that loves me, plenty of food, clean water, way to many toys, a soft bed, and toilet paper to shred and track all over the house. What could be better?

A new arrival

Hi, I'm Bai-Jin. My name means white gold in Chinese. I live with my doggy mom and dad in Mississippi. I will soon go live with my family in Colorado, which is very far away. My new human mom's friend decided she needs another puppy so is getting me for her. Mom wasn't sure if she was up to it, but I'm on my way anyway. I guess that's how things go sometimes. I know I will be loved and well cared for, but mom is worried about having a young pup with the foster dogs she cares for, especially since I am such a tiny pup. I know I can win her over though, I mean, look at me, who WOULDN'T want to hold me and love me forever. That's why her friend knew it was going to be OK to get me without asking. I don't arrive in Colorado till Saturday and mom just found out about me but is already getting ready for my arrival. At least her friend let her know a LITTLE in advance about the big suprize, me.

Here is my dad (white) and my mom (balck/white) and me at 5 weeks old. Aren't I a doll?
