WCMD Challenge #2: Mexico

Both folklore and archeological finds show that the Chihuahua breed originated in Mexico. The most common theory and most likely is that Chihuahuas are descended from the Techichi, a companion dog favored by the Toltec civilization in Mexico. Gwen, my BBGF (Best Blogging GF!) has three of these little charmers, so I know she'll appreciate my Mexican card entry!!! She and another friend, Ilene, are @ CKC today. They are responsible for getting me into rubber stamping (Ilene) and blogging (Gwen), so they're very important in my life. Finances permitting I'd have been with them today, but I'm so happy WCMD gave me something to think about other than missing the day with them!
