Meet Butters

An 8 ounce cup of coffee.  I was so sleepy that I really thought I needed it this morning... then I started to feel the effects of the caffeine.  I was wired, I felt jittery, a little bit dizzy when I moved too fast, and I caught myself shaking my right leg under my desk at times.  It kept me moving, but now the caffeine crash is taking control and I'm tired, restless, and a bit irked that it isn't 5pm yet.

But let me catch you up to speed on something new and exciting in my life (and Leon's life!).  We got a puppy!  We started his blog over at:  http://ButtersByTheBay.blogspot.com!!

Our new puppy has been named after our favorite South Park character, Butters (aka Professor Chaos).  Butters was born on April 19, 2010 and came home with us on June 30, 2010.  He is a purebred yellow Labrador Retriever who comes from a long line of AKC Registered hunting dogs - we just didn't register him because we'll be neutering him with the East Bay SPCA on August 27th.

We've been clicker training him since we got him and he now knows.... Sit, Down, Paw/High-Five, Fetch, Give, and Stay.  He also knows that Home means to go in his crate and he likes to potty on lawns.  If he isn't let out fast enough, he'll have an accident in the house, which is infrequent because he'd rather hold it til he got to a patch of grass.

He goes to Muttley Crew for doggy daycare, where he was boarded this past Tuesday night because Leon & I went to AT&T Park for a SF Giants game with the cousins.  He's always tired after we pick him up from daycare... which is good since he's learning critical socializing skills with other puppies, dogs, and the staff.  We also have doggy play dates with our friends' dogs.


Check out a video of Butters playing with Kaiya, our ex-roommate (Thea)'s chihuahua.  At 11 weeks old, Butters learned he couldn't keep up with an adult dog - haha.  He tired out quickly and fell asleep as soon as we got in the car to head home.  I included a few photos for you all to check out too!

He's so cute!!!

On another note, how random it is that the other dog's name is Kaiya when that's my cat's name. I've NEVER heard of anyone even understanding what her name is much less their pet having the name AND it being spelled the same! :)

Thank you! We think he's just the handsome lil guy too :)

And I love the name Kaiya! It's unique, cute, and you already know the gender! Hehe.
