Meet The New Boy In My Life

I've become pretty darn lousy at this blog upkeep thing ... and I'm not sure if that's about to get worse or better ... because, now, I'm head-over-heels and all-consumed with a special someone.

Meet Huck.

Ah, Huck, the name built for limericks. While you'd think that was my intention, I actually named him after Huckleberry Finn, the Mark Twain character. I was originally going to go with Ponyboy (a la The Outsiders) but the more I've gotten to know this little bugger, the more a Huckleberry he's become. I will, however, always advise this dog to stay gold.

The stats on Huck:
  • He's a rescue from an organization called A.R.F. Ontario.
  • He's just shy of three-months old.
  • We think he's a boxer-shepherd mix, but a few people have pointed out he has some mastiff qualities, too. Bring on the big poops.
  • He's probably about 14 lb. right now with the potential to become a whole lot bigger in the coming months.
  • Napping (complete with feet-wiggling dreams) is a favourite past-time, followed by munching on smoked rawhide bones and hooves, followed by farting.
  • He is not a fan of car rides, the plastic squeaky toy I bought him, or how those poor kids STILL haven't learned how their long-winded dad met their mother, already.
Huck is so sweet, I can barely stand it. He has a lot of nice manners and a willingness to please, but I'll be starting official puppy training next week so that he'll be the dearest and happiest dog on the block.

I'm so in love.

Based his paws I suggested "Fezzik" as a name. Much less subject to limerick abuse but a name you would not want him to grow into.
We are thrilled for you and hope you two will be happy, happy together!

I smiled when I saw your blog in bold in my Google Reader-- I've really missed your writing! Hope everything is well with you.

This will be the best companion you have! I have always said I like my men like I like my dogs big, dumb, and fun! But we all know the dog is going to be smarter. :)

So cute.. But I am going to have to say it even though you probably already noticed that when you are calling your furry friend from down the street or at the park you will sound like you are yelling something that rhymes with Huck...... Too Funny! Hey Huck ! Come here right now! Oh dear ! HAHAHAHA. Maybe Berry works too?
