Okay, I know this is supposed to be a blog about traveling, so my apologies for not keepin’ in the groove.
However, I just have to show off the new member of the family. The little guy is 9 weeks old. His name is Howard, but he’s called Howie for short. Love him to pieces already.
I love his eyes, the little noises that he makes and the pattering of his feet. His big ol’ ears are so large and floppy and his paws, well, there’s nothing like them. I love watching him run and pounce on his toys.
Food is very important to him. He is smart as a whip and already knows where his dog food bag is…fortunately, he’s not tall enough to stick his snout into it to help himself to a snack. He makes frequent visits to the “food room” to see if anyone has filled his doggie dish up. All I can say is that he is staying true to his Lab roots because they are forever “hungry”. They’re pigs.
I love watching him sleep,it’s like the world does’t even exist, he’s so content and happy. I love his sleepy puppy eyes right after he wakes up from one of his naps. I think it’s so cute the way he treats his stuffed dog as one of his brothers or his sister, and then cries at it when it doesn’t play with him (poor baby! Don’t worry though, the stuffed dog suddenly comes to “life”, and then he’s fine).
Howard is such a good lil’ guy. He slept like a baby through his first night at his new home. I’ve had other puppies before and never has that happened. It didn’t take long for him to make himself at home. Bless his little heart. 🙂
