Everyone, Meet Hank!

His arrival was delayed till Saturday afternoon instead of Thursday. But better late than never. He was exactly 8 weeks old on Saturday.

He's such a cutie! Apparently he hasn't quite connected with his legs yet, so he stumbles around sometimes. And his head looks like it's too big and heavy for his body and he hasn't quite figured out how to hold it up yet. So sometimes his head goes *ponk* into the food bowl as he's eating.

He flew from Jo'burg to Cape Town into the big, strong rescuing arms of Kelly (as instructed by the breeder). Apparently Hank's really chilled out. When he arrived from Jo'burg, there were a couple other Rhodesian Ridgeback puppies, a parrot and some other dogs in the same hold as well. All the other animals were barking or sqwacking their heads off, but dear Hank was just chilling in his cage, unfazed by it all.

He also squeaks when he wants to go to the loo, and Kelly has managed to catch his signals every time (bar an accident at 4am when Kelly just couldn't get outta bed in time.)

Get ready for some Monday cuteness! (I'm also thinking it's time to get Hank a fancier collar than THAT!)

  3. Arturo - you and your cryptic acronyms! I'm still trying to figure out what SO means. BUT... yeah, we're moving back to Cape Town. K's dad's really sick, so we're leaving for family reasons. He has gone back first to be with his dad. He left Sydney on Christmas Day, but came back to help me pack up for a week last week. I will leave Sydney tomorrow night. Will spend a few days at home in Singapore with my family first, then head over to Cape Town.

    Karen - I know right? Can't wait to meet Hank and give him a squeeze. :)
