Dinah hugged the expensive red sport’s car to one side of the road, attempting to pull off as her beloved Chihuahua ChiChi feverously barked.
“Just hold it one more minute, darling and mommy will have you out for tinkle time,” she promised, knowing that she had already waited far too long to make the doggie pit stop.
There was good reason, too she noted as she grabbed ChiChi’s water bottle and exited the car, the tiny doggie following suit.

“ChiChi! Here boy,” she called to him as he finished his business. “How about a bit of water? There, there. Good boy,” she praised as he licked at the bottle with his tiny pink tongue, Dinah managing to squeeze a bit of the water into his tiny mouth - a miracle in itself.
