You can put them on the forum if you want, under "Events and Activities".  You can also email them to me if you prefer.

 

Yes, that link worked!  Great party trick.  What a cute fellow.

Oh and I learned how to play dead!!  (hope the link works  :D )

Thanks for sharing the link.  That is one smart puppy, and of course you did a great job teaching him that trick.  I have never tried that one.

Highly politically incorrect and for that you get major points. Awesome trick.

He seems to be growing slowly compared to many. Wonder if he'll be a wee AID like Sega (Judy K's dog), Lili, Waki, Sita Flower and Ayita. I love the teensy AID dogs or as Sri calls Sita - pocket coyotes. Hey that would be just as good on the registry as Sock Goblin.

Oh wait, you are in Texas. OK then. Thought you were in Boston. Still give you points.

So I know I'm biased...but LOOK...look at that adorable face with his little bandana!  :wub:

 

The other night, my family and I rented a movie to watch and we spent half the movie just staring at little Zeph...all he was doing was laying on the floor with his little bandana staring back at us with those little beedy eyes...and yet somehow we couldn't get enough of him haha!

 

Also, we have nicknamed him "Zephrey" or "Zeffrey" wonder if that will work for the registry? :rolleyes:  ...it's funny because I envisioned Zephyr as this majestic, serious dog and named him after a Greek God (and yes he is majestic too in his own way), but he really is such a goofy silly character (hence "Zephrey" the silly version) - and honestly it's like he somehow knew that that's what I needed in my life.  Does he make my life a struggle sometimes, yes...can he be ornery, yes...but oh my how he makes me laugh!  :lol:  :lol:

Zephrey....that's perfect!  

 

Now....the challenge:

 

Alternate spellings:

 

Ghephery - (first two letters are silent and replaced with a "Z" sound....hey!  It's my game, I can make up my rules!)

 

Zeghery - (this time the 'gh' produce an "F" sound as in enough.  (truthfully though I pronounce 'enough' as EE-now-guh anyway so there's that)).

 

irhuaoew - (all the letters are silent and you pronounce it anyway you want!  Thank you George Carlin for that one!)

There will be times when he is grown that he will take your breath away with majesty but then the personality will come out. Back and forth it will go. PS Scott thinks Kim has a "glamor" line of AIDs - Cake, Zeff, Nefrit, Kona... - you know you have one when a stranger stops you to take multiple pictures of YOUR dog and comments that they won't believe this at the office.

It's been a few weeks since I updated!  Zeph is doing great, has an accident only here and there.  I figured out that he crates better if I crate him together with his sister.  My large crate is at my parents house, so once I get it transferred to my apartment, I will probably try that more often - I have been leaving him out in my apartment to run short errands here and there (he cries a little when I leave but settles down pretty quickly).  So far so good, he won't destroy anything or have any accidents, so there is hope!

 

He really is a doll, though - he learns to moderate his energy level and just chill on the days when we aren't at the business.  I had family in town this weekend and they just adored him  :wub:

 

He's still super gangly, but at least he is finally growing a little bit lol!

 

The last pic is the look he gives me when he is too tired to go out for a walk -- if looks could kill hahaha

That's a handsome fellow!  Please resize your pictures if you can, next time.  600 X 800 pixels is a good size for member viewing.

Aww that's so sweet and thank you! He is about 5 months now I think, the days are all a blur lol. He was right at about 6 weeks when I got him. He is still so gangly and petite...still only 22lbs. But I guess he is just a slow grower. He is a doll and gets SO spoiled!

I have been meaning to share this video for quite some time now, but I had thought I lost it at one point -- luckily had it backed up on my Dad's computer.

 

It doesn't look like much, but it is extremely special to me. When I went to visit Kim, he recommended two pups out of that pen for me. I believe the other one I was looking at is now Nakoma (Ranger Komi) -- anyways I had held several of the pups, but after holding one pup, I would pick Zephyr up again. What drew me to him was his eyes - they were so alert and bright, just taking in the world! I was only in the pen for maybe 5-10 minutes, decided on Zeph, then Kim offered to show me his parents (Raven and Choco). So we spent some time with the adults and then I came back to the pen watched Kim and Greg feed the pups...then squatted down and made this kissing noise. He was the ONLY one that payed any attention and as you can see immediately came trotting over. It just made me feel like it was SO meant to be...how fast he bonded with me, it just blows my mind. Sometimes I think he chose me more than I chose him.

 

So anyways though it may not look like much, I will always hold this little video clip close to my heart  :wub:

 

https://youtu.be/BvTSH3_fQ4s

 

I will be getting updated pics of Zeph today too, yay!
