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.)
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!
Strummer made her modeling debut for Strange & Violent Creations back in January, here's an outtake from the shots. Check out Erika's shop for awesome custom dyed pieces like this dog hoodie & sustainable menstrual accessories. Also, Strummer's friend Molly, companion of Erika & Pranjal, has a blog- The Bug Dog Blog!
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!
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!
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!
2 lbs of terror, Strummer is a rescued female chihuahua from the mean streets of San Francisco's Mission district. This pint sized pup is quiet as a mouse, a Deery Lou lookalike, an herbivore, & a lover of all things corn!
