As a joke I told my parents I wanted lots of pie for my birthday weekend, so we had onion tart and detroit-style deep dish (the carrot cake did not survive long enough to be photographed). We also had “ham roses” which sounds like a slang term for a butt (puff pastry rolled up with jam, ham, and gruyere). And of course no visit home would be complete without Longhorn the Wonder Dog glaring balefully.
[Description: Top row, three images of “pies” -- an uncooked onion tart, the final cooked onion tart, and an overhead shot of a Detroit-style pizza, very thick bread with sauce and cheese. Below, two images: a rolled up pastry with ham sticking out of the top looking like a flower, and a photograph of my parents’ chihuahua in close-up, staring at the camera.]

Chihuahua |M| Bloomington, IL
"Tux is a 11 year old Chihuahua/Dachshund mix who tops the scales at 11.8 pounds. He found himself looking for a new home through no fault of his own, sadly, his owner was sent to an assisted living facility and was unable to take him along.
Once Tux trusts you; he is the sweetest boy, and most loving to those he has bestowed his approval on. Because he is fearful of strangers, he may need a few visits before he warms up to a potential adopter. Tux will need an owner that understands he can be possessive of his person and that he is leery of strangers."
