Pasa with Portrait

About this J.P. Dog:

Pasa is a three year old Chihuahua, or possibly chihuahua-dachshund (or “chiweenie”). We’ve also heard theories that she’s chihuahua-rat terrier and (my personal favorite) chihuahua-Rhodesian ridgeback. Her full name is Pasilla (pronounced Pa-see-yuh), like the pepper commonly used in Oaxacan dishes. But in practice, she’s Pasa, which means “raisin” in Spanish. She also goes by Pasita (“little raisin”) and Squeeta (my mom’s nickname for her). (Continue for Pasa’s rescue story and five more photos of this little one…) (more…)
