A Glutton For Pinishment

I'm not sure what we were thinking, but Thursday, we bought a puppy. . . .

Meet RhinoHe is a 7 week old Chihuahua.
Look at the cute little heart on his head.Here he is about to attack this vicious stick.Bear with me on these last two photos. I know they are out of focus. I included them on this post because Dax is pretty unsure about this whole puppy thing. But look at what a good girl she's being as Rhino is playing with her.

So far, we have discovered he is NOT really a good sleeper. The first night he slept for about 8 hours. Waking up at EXACTLY 6:00am BUT last night, he woke up at 3:00, 5:00, and 6:00. I got up with Loo at 3. She wasn't too happy with Rhino. She looked like she was going to strangle him. I asked her if it was worth it for a puppy and she exclaimed "Yes! I wouldn't trade him for anything!"

We think he has ADD. He will be all excited chasing after a toy, then stop dead in his tracks to pick up a tiny piece of paper on the ground, or attack a leaf. Or he'll be starving and go grab some of his food, then about half way through the first couple bites, he'll stop and go attack the rug. What a goofy dog!

His favorite toy is ANYTHING that's not a designated dog toy! He's like a tiny little toddler. He picks up everything and puts it into his mouth.

He is fun though...I think. We'll see how tonight goes. I might be singing a different tune tomorrow.

How about some Eels to keep you company today here's Beloved Monster. I think that's fitting for this little guy! :)

okay! He is SO FREAKING CUTE! I WANT him! So, if Loo gets tired of the 3 am wake up calls, I'll take him off your hands *wink* *wink*.. When Mike gets home tonight, I am showing him this post! We are going to need a buddy for Bobo when Sarge moves away AND I really do think that Xar needs a lap dog! She ADORES them!~

He's so cute! You are very brave. I LOVE dogs but I'm not sure I could handle a puppy. They are very fun to play with but just about as much work as having a toddler around. My kids will be bugging me now to come see him. :)
