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!

  1. Strummer's story is as strange as Bettie's (the kitty I found in the street and had rescued from the Parisian sewers, ewwww).

    The same thing happened to me with a puppy a few years ago but when we took her to the vet, she told us the doggy had a chip and an owner...

  7. A fan page for miss strum-strum couldn't be more appropriate. How about having her interview some of her favorite vegan dogs as visiting spotlights [hint hint].

  8. Strummer is the cutest!

    We added to our brood two weeks ago. The culprit, fifty pounds (approximately) of Rotweiler/German Shepherd hell. He barks like a bear but looks like a stuffed animal you win at the carnival.

  9. Strummer is precious! She's so tiny. She's very lucky that you were the ones to take her in.

  10. Wow, I never noticed because she's just so tiny, but she really has grown! I forget how puppy-like she used to be! I'm glad Strummer has a blog now. I would say Molly is, too, but you know that grumpy old lady isn't glad about anything!
