Cool Blogs Haute Dogs: Housewife Blues and Chihuahua Stories

 WOOF!  Please welcome Jackie and Nikki (pictured above)!

Jackie has been one of my favorite bloggers for awhile since we bonded over dogs and a mis-sent book ages ago.  


How long have you been blogging?  
Since April 2009

Do you have a favorite genre of books to feature on your blog? 
 I read a lot of Paranormal Romance, Contemporary, Historical or Erotic Romances and Urban Fantasy but review just about every genre except straight horror.

How many books a year do you read? 
Any where from 200 on if have the time. Right now my count is 198 and almost finished with #199 today.

What does your dog like to do while you blog or read?  
Sit on the couch and look out the bay window so he can bark when someone drives by. He also lays on the floor in a patch of sunshine and sleeps while I am otherwise occupied with my computer or books.

What is your dog’s favorite activity?  
Nikki is 13 so his favorite activity is taking a nap with my husband on the weekend and during the week sitting on the end of my recliner relaxing while I read.

You can find Jackie here:

Oh, and here are some more pictures from Jackie!


  1. Welcome Nikki!
    My dog used to close my book so I would play and pet him! It was hard reading with him around, but I still miss him!

  2. Mary the cats are my calico Tabby Munequa and my crazy Tom Cat Blade, Nikki is the oldest of the bunch and also poor baby is ganged up on by the puddies!

    The Desert Rocks, never had that problem as my brat just sits at the end of my chair or if winter beside me to keep warm while I read. They are all different and when Nikki is gone it is going to be hard to adjust as he is my shadow!

  3. OMG! How could I have not known about this blog! Talk about right up my alley.

    Thanks again, Jackie for introducing me to someone new. Nice to meet you, Mary.

  7. Hi Jackie, and Nikki, good to meet you!
    Our first dog as marrieds was a rat terrier named Nikki. She was 16 when she died.

  8. Carla have met people with big dogs named Nikki as well, sorry to hear about yours am sure you miss her still!

    My Toy Fox Terrier was our first pet as a young married couple, my husband bought him for my 21st birthday and he had to be put to sleep at 15 1/2, miss Dice every day but our memories are full of laughter.
