Bath time for baby bear in the sink!

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Strummer.

There seemed to be a lot of, "Where's Strummer?" this weekend while we were in Southern California.
At our friend Josh's house, we found her in a corner, nestled in a blanket on the floor.

When we returned home, within minutes of being in the house, she wanted to get in bed so badly, she jumped in to the bag it was still in! Silly girl!

Fold Your Hands Child, You Walk Like a Peasant.

Strummer likes to fold her limbs in funny positions, we say it's lady-like, but regardless, it's downright adorable.
You can see a hint of a famous Strummer smile here, she's playing it very Mona Lisa.

My little window gazer.

Strummer in Escape from Meat Island!

Strummer is not an only furball, in fact, she has two VERY big brothers, Beamish & Scurvy. The only problem is, she can be a bit timid around them, especially when they're sleeping on the couch. Her solution? MEAT ISLAND!
When Strummer jumps up & finds the massive felines having a lounge, she retreats to the t-bone pillow & waits for them to leave, so she can run around on the couch.
(Why yes, she IS a vegan dog, but no animals were harmed in the making of this ridiculous pillow.)

How Much is that Doggie in the Basket?

Sunday, we hit Whole Foods for some snacks & we found this little morsel in our basket!

I wonder if they have any more available?

Strummer + Melisser = True Love.

Okay, so this isn't a blog for humans, it's a blog for the World's Cutest Tiny Chihuahua, but I adore my baby bear so much, I thought it would be OK to slip in this one, so you can see the cuteness.
This is her, "yeah, OKAY.." face, when she knows someone is doting on her. Next thing you know, she'll be using her paws to spring off your face, so she can go run around.

Strummer's Swanky Digs!

Okay, they may not be the clearest photos of Strummer, but she can't help but show off her swanky side. Sure, it's not her chair, but she thinks she looks damn good in it!

Shopping with Strummer & Isa!

Strummer & I have a Wednesday routine which includes a trip to the Farmers Market, then on to Rainbow Grocery, the best vegetarian co-op ever!
On a recent trip, we were joined by Isa Chandra Moskowitz, vegan cookbook author, American Idol, & maintainer of good hair, who managed to snap a great shot of a sneaky Strummer, climbing out of her bag!

Say NO to Fur!

If Strummer sees you wearing fur, the following may happen..

Okay, maybe anti-fur isn't quite the message she's going for, but we can pretend, right?

Doe Eyed Darling

Strummer HATES the car.
On the rare occasion we get in to the car, she sits on my lap & buries her head or looks up at me with these sad little eyes. How can something so sad, be so cute?

Best Purchase Ever?

It's amazing what you can pick up in shops these days!
Okay okay, we were just shopping for supplies. This was taken shortly after Strummer came in to our lives.

Take a Bite out of Crime!

Every Wednesday, Strummer & I go to Heart of the City Farmers Market & every week Strummer tries to eat some of the vegetables from our favorite vendor.
This week she managed to get her paws on a carrot that was just her size!

Thank you to Evan of BjorkedOff for the photos!

Strummer vs. Popcorn.

This is what happens when you leave a popcorn loving chihuahua to its own devices! Sneaky, sneaky. (This is an old one for some of you!)

Keep it clean, kids.

My mother mentioned that the photos I've posted so far don't do justice to the cuteness that is Miss Strummer & I agree! She's typically a waggly tailed little lover, especially when it comes to her Mom & Dad. She loves to stand on Ryan's shoulder, so we call her our parrot. I taught her to attack with kisses & here she's doing just that, but not quite where you would want to be kissed!

What's My Name?

Welcome to Strummer Calling, home of photos & video of "The Only Pup That Matters"! Strummer is a 2 lb female chihuahua named after Joe Strummer, singer & guitar player for The Clash, also known as "The Only Band That Matters". While this will normally be a spot for photos & videos of our 2 lbs of terror, I figure it's best to start with the story of how Strummer came in to our lives, a strange tale we tell time & time again.

On the day before Fathers Day in 2008, we were taking a walk to our co-op, partaking in our usual routine of fawning over every dog we see. As we approached two men & a tiny chihuahua, I couldn't help but comment on how adorable this pint sized puppy was! Next thing I know, I am being told to take the dog, as they didn't want it & claimed to have found it on the sidewalk. Not one to leave an animal behind, we walked away with a shivering, flea ridden, hungry 1.5 lb puppy. Over the next few weeks, we checked the area for lost dog signs, posted & read ads, & no one claimed the little one, & so the era of Strummer began.

Welcome to Strummerville, population one fucking adorable pup!
