30 Photos: Day #21 – New Puppy

Look what I can do!

Look Mom! I can do it on my own!     ***     Honest, it wasn’t me!

This little feller is new to our household. He arrived a week ago, and he is only now old enough to get into trouble. At first we had to feed him with a spoon, and he walked like a drunk. I felt it was too soon for him to be away from his mother, but by the third day, he was doing just fine. Now he climbs right into a bowl of rice with finely chopped meat all drizzled with broth and chows down. His bed is a big carton lined with blankets. It has a hole cut into the side so that he can climb in when he wants, but like a baby in a crib, he likes to try to climb over the sides. He can’t yet, but it won’t be long. He already likes to chew on flip-flops and is quickly learning other shenanigans.


I am Superpuppy!

    He’s adorable! The only things I like better than puppies are babies! There’s nothing in the world like ‘puppy breath!’ What’s his name???

      Your comment made me smile. His name is Ru Khi. My husband’s nephew named him. Khi is monkey. I think Ru is just a sound to add a happy feeling to the name.

  2. Super adorable puppy, that’s for sure!! What a sweetie 🙂
    And those eyebrows are the best!
