These photos are of our two 7-month-old Chiweenie (Chihuahua-Dachshund) puppies on Thanksgiving. 

These pups are from the same litter.  Angelina, the oldest of four puppies, weighs 5 pounds and Princess, the second oldest, weighs 15 pounds.  We had 8-doggies and 6 people (one four-month old baby, River) at our house for Thanksgiving: our pups; their parents… the mom Angel a full breed long-haired/short-haired Chihuahua and Daddy Apachi is a Chiweenie; two Lhasa Apso’s; a Papillion and a tiny 1 pound Yorky-Chihuahua mix puppy. 

Angelina waiting patiently and hoping for leftovers.  Princess gave up and put herself to sleep. 

Yes, Thanksgiving had gone to the dogs at our house this year; we were outnumbered, but amazingly they all got along and nobody even begged at the dinner table for scraps.  As you can see from the photos… Angelina (and others) waited patiently and Princess just flat gave up.
