From a very young age, Jose' and Maggie had lived next door to each other. Only a chain-link fence divided them as they played in their own backyards. Everyday they chased up and down and barked excitedly playing games all their own. Maggie was a Golden Lab and Jose' a Chihuahua. The difference in size was of no consequence in the puppy days of their friendship, but soon Maggie grew and grew while Jose' remained small. But Jose' knew no fear and he thought he was the king of the subdivision, the main man, he was definitely an alpha dog strutting like Jagger and Maggie was adorable, all soft, playful canine, loving and sweet.
Soon a new phase of growing up was reached and Maggie would roll her eyes at Jose' and he would nuzzle her through the fence. Their love for each other grew by leaps and bounds, but they were destined to spend their lives separately. One day Jose' raised his nose to a new scent. Excitedly he nipped and jumped barking a new signal. Sweet Maggie was beside herself, wanting to be close to her lover. She quivered and barked and whined, what should they do? Maggie could take it no longer and decided to take things in hand/paw. First they tried digging, each on their side of the fence and when they had a pretty nice sized hole Jose' slipped his body under the metal, the fence clawing his skin. He didn't care if he was wounded, he just wanted to be with his girl. Just as he was almost there, his owner came out and took him inside the house to doctor his cuts. The hole was filled in and Jose' was punished, by having to stay inside for the rest of the day. Maggie was upset, howling and crying, and Jose' was even more upset. Maggie sent a message through the air and Jose' listened. Finding a loose screen he shoved his way out of the window landing on top of the air conditioner and jumping into the yard. Maggie stood back as far as she could go then took off running. She picked up speed almost lifting off her feet and suddenly she was airborne. It was amazing, the way she soared graceful as a gazelle over the top of the chain-link fence. Her landing was a little off kilter and her legs were a little shaky but she was all in one piece. Jose' was beside himself, kissing her and licking her and making little wheezing noises. They were so excited but there was one little problem. Maggie was willing but Jose' was just too short. Crazed now, he tried leaping, she tried bending down, but all was for naught. Were these two destined to be star-crossed lovers? Now, Jose' was not a dog that gave up easily. He motioned for Maggie to follow him. Maggie followed Jose' to the backstairs. Jose' climbed up one, two then three and found he was just the perfect size to make love to his beautiful lady. Ohhhhhhhhhh what passion erupted, for Jose' was the hottest of lovers. His salsa hips a sight to see, as he held tight to Maggie. Jose' rolled his eyes and thought he was in heaven, and Maggie was sated and sighing, and it had been worth the wait, the trials and errors, and they knew it would last forever. After much kissing and sweet woofs whispered, Maggie sailed back across the fence and no one need ever be the wiser, or so they thought. But it turned out that Jose' was a virile male you see, and not long after that fateful day Maggie birthed six little pups, they called them chalabas the cutest puppies you'll ever see.
