Fonzie is our 11 year old Chihuahua. Matt and I bought him right after we moved into our very first apartment. He was so tiny!!! I remember that when he would eat his back legs would come up off the ground because he head weighed more than his body. He is definitely getting older, and had a rough transition into our new house. He had 3 seizures in one day, which is not normal even for his epilepsy. He usually has less than one a month! And he stayed in his cage for days and days and didn't want to do much at all. In the midst of all this he broke his toe, which made him look absolutely pathetic when he limped everywhere! And then today.... I heard a dog playing and thought it was Betty, our other Chihuahua. Well, it was actually both of them playing together!! Fonzie hasn't played in MONTHS, in fact I can't remember the last time he did. I was able to snap a picture of him with his favorite green mouse. It's good to know he is finally settling in and feeling at home. :)

And here is one more picture of Fonzie. He was mad at Matt for some reason, either he didn't want to go in his cage or wanted another drink or something, and he ended up jumping in the toy basket to "escape". Sadly, he couldn't get out, but Matt came to the rescue. :)
