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!

Strummer faced off with her fine feathered frienemies & asked, "WhatchooTalkinBoutWillis?!".

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!
