Awkwardness

by Destini


I have big ears today. I look more like a Joey than a whippet. Nom nom. Where's my food?

Puppy is doing great. She’s going outside with Minka to do her business now rather than us escorting her (still supervised) and so far, is super on the leash. She’s eating well and adores the family. I worry that she won't love me as much as Minka does, but Jong insists this is a good thing as Minka is pretty needy.

Sparrow met Uncle Chewy and Auntie Willow (the greyhounds) the other day, and terrified them. They were walking through the kitchen to go outside for a walk and the puppy was having her breakfast. Sparrow ran up to Chewy and nibbled on his ears in play before we could grab her and pull her away. He was at a loss of what to do (and likely in some pain).

When the greyhounds returned from the walk, Chewy was afraid to come inside (and through the kitchen) because he remembered the holy terror that traumatized him the last time he was in there.. Took about 10 mins to coax the boy inside…. It's quite funny that Chewy - a HUGE greyhound is intimidated by the innocuous play nibbles of a very small whippet puppy.

When Minka was a puppy, she looked at Chewy with hero worship. One day, if she ate her kibble, she could grow up to be as big as Uncle Chewy. Minka still aspires to be as big as Uncle Chewy...

Remember when I was little and you were big, Chewy? Huh huh?
