a doglet saves the day

well this is an awesome story of a doglet who saves the day!! a side story about what a doglet is in case you are wondering. my dad grew up with big dogs and when he and mom got me he thought i was too small to be a real dog, since he only knew big dogs. so he called me a doglet. well this doglet is a super hero chihuahua!!! i promise i would protect miriam like this, really i would! and i know ivy would protect her little baby brother too, cause ivy is the sweetest.

MASONVILLE, Colo. - Zoey is a Chihuahua, but when a rattlesnake lunged at her owners’ 1-year-old grandson, she was a real bulldog.
Booker West was splashing his hands in a birdbath in his grandparents’ northern Colorado back yard when the snake slithered up to the toddler, rattled and struck. Five-pound Zoey jumped in the way and took the bites.
“She got in between Booker and the snake, and that’s when I heard her yipe,” Monty Long, the boy’s grandfather, said Thursday.
The dog required treatment and for a time it appeared she might not survive. Now she prances about.
“These little bitty dogs, they just don’t really get credit,” Booker’s grandma Denise Long told the Loveland Daily Reporter-Herald.

hooray for doglets!! zoey needs a blog!

Emmy would kill it in a heart beat- not to save anybody, just because she is crazy and likes to kill snakes.
