If Dr. Seuss wrote A Chihuahua Story By Brad Rand Minnie: Eight chihuahuas, I'm the star, Yes, eight I said -- or eight, so far. Lucy: Another one could always come. Kimmie: That thought makes me very glum, For I would have to share my toy, That does not bring me joy! No joy! Nella: A new chihuahua? Good idea! We could name her, maybe, Mia . . . Mia: Mia? That's MY name, you dunce! Nella: Oh, yes, I think I heard that once. Jessel: This new chihuahua, could she be Black and white, a cow, like me? Bonnie: There are no other cows like you, Let's hear it, Jess, let's hear you Moo. Jessel: Oh, now you're teasing, Bah, I say. Mia: Move off that bed! I want to lay. Lucy: Oh, you do not! You want to breed it! Brad says no, but you don't heed it. Nella: Really, Mia, that looks silly. Beds keep you warm when it gets chilly. Jazlyn: I want no new ones, eight's enough. A new one could be mean, or rough. Bonnie: Jazlyn, you are such a sissy. I will handle this new missy. If she's rough, I'll growl a ton. Minnie: Ha! You growl at everyone. You sound so fierce -- but then you run. Lucy: Now, girls, we're not allowed to fight. Not in the morning, nor at night. Jazlyn: Remember, if Brad says we can't, We can't, we mustn't, and we shan't. Kimmie: My toy is gone! How could this be? Who took my toy? Lucy: Not me. Jazlyn: Not me. Nella: I took it, Kim, between my teeth. Kimmie: Nella, you are such a thief. You give that back, you spit it out. Don't make me mad, I'll bite your snout. Lucy: There goes Kim, with her big act. One thing you lack, my dear, is tact. Minnie: Another thing she lacks is height, She can't reach high enough to bite. Kimmie: But I can give her quite a smack, My mouth is set, my ears are back. I'm looking very tough today. Jessel: Oh, poo, you always look that way. Kimmie: My tail is pointing at my head. Nella, are you filled with dread? Jazlyn: Nella's rolling on the ground, She's laughing at your chipmunk frown. Kimmie: She dropped my toy! I have it! Yay! I told you I would win this fray. Minnie: There was no fray, you little 'munk, But you sure do have lots of spunk. Mia: You do, you do, you do, indeed. I like that, hey, you want to breed? Jazlyn: Really, Mia, what a mind! Kimmie's not in heat, you'll find. Mia: I'm not either, but it's fun. Jessel: Hey! Let's play! Let's run and run! Nella: First one on the A-frame wins! Jazlyn: Ouch! Who kicked me in the shins? Bonnie: Oops, I'm sorry, that was me. Jazlyn: Goodness, how rude can you be! Kimmie: I am going to win this game! Then everyone will know my name! From the tippaty-top I'll shout my joy! Hey, wait a minute! Who took my toy?
