Eddie's Story

Updated on January 24, 2013

Meet Eddie McKillip!

Hello, everyone! I'm Eddie. I am a chihuahua something mix ... I unfortunately never knew my real parents. I am a Virgo, love to take long walks, and play hard. I love to lay in the sun ... even if it is only one ray coming through a window. I am single and extremely loyal to my adoptive "peeps". I love to spend time with my family wether it is playing frisbee in the yard, or curling up with them on the couch to watch a good flick. I have no plans on puppies, as I do not want the responsibility nor do I want to share my family's attention! I sometimes appear a little gruff, but am actually a sweet guy. I am very demanding but at the same time very loving and affectionate. My bark and bite are both gentle. I do have an extensive wardrobe, however I prefer to be running around - au naturale! I am ... Eddie!

Thank you for stopping by and please leave me a note in the guestbook!!

I wag my tail only for YOU!

Where Eddie came from ...

Eddie came into our lives on Father's Day of 2008. A void had been created in our lives when we had two dogs in the prior year die on us. A neighbor came to visit us and asked if we would like to adopt Eddie, as they could not keep him. His little beady eyes were a little unnerving at first and we weren't sure if he would ever stop "marking his territory" throughout our house. We decided to take a chance with this little guy, and now neither he nor we can live without each other. He has quickly become a member of our family, and has earned our love and attention.

"Are you taking me on a walk or what ...?"

The Name Game!

It took us a little while to come up with a name for Eddie. We tossed around the obvious chihuahua names like Pepe and Chico. We tossed around favorite sports players names and previous pet names. We finally, after much deliberation and numerous votes, decided to name him after the dog on one of our favorite shows, Frasier. Eddie it was!

Living a Dog's Life

He loves and does what many dogs do. The long walks and playing with his family seem to be his favorites. He loves all his toys and has a weakness for special treats like his Puperoni! When not walking and playing, he has his own bed in which he sleeps. (although he is not a stranger to comandeering a vacant bed of one of his family when they are out!! He also loves to eat and is not very picky on the types of food.

Love of Our Lives!

We love the way Eddie loves us unconditionally, and without reservation! Just how we love him!

Halloween 2010

Not my best look!!

I asked my adoptive dad to get me a Dracula or Frankenstein costume. All I wanted was something cool for all my peeps to see me in as I trick-or-treated. Well, as you can see, he got me something "slightly" less cool. I had to go out as a pumpkin!! Can you believe it?

Anyway, I did get some good treats and everyone said I looked cute. I hope he listens to me next time though!!
