I got back to Chihuahua Sunday and noticed that Mocha, my sister Michelle's new puppy, has grown considerably in just a few weeks. All of us, including my nephews, fell in love as soon as we saw him in Chihuahua's Dog Alley. Two dozen cars and trucks line up the street on weekends and show off all sorts of dogs and puppies. All of them look like pure breeds.
Mocha was only two months old. We met his friendly mom and two other darling siblings in the back of a truck. The father and son were selling them for 1,500 pesos each, or about $120. Sold! On the way home we thought about what to name him. "Seyyed", "Mossadegh", "Rumi", "Mohammad", "Fereydoun"? We decided on Mocha :)
My sister's previous dog, Siah the Shih Tzu, had been given away a few months ago to one of her son's friends. He had become too rowdy. Mocha on the other hand is the sweetest little character. Robert and I took him for a walk yesterday. Enjoy the pictures.
I've always wanted a dog. A collie like Candy when we were growing up in Abadan. But with my lifestyle, a big dog wouldn't be practical. A basset hound like Mocha will do very nicely. Or I'll get a small abandoned dog from a shelter. That's what I SHOULD do.
