Puppy Love

Since I was born, I always had a dog.  Okay, technically, my parents always had a dog, but I grew up with them.  Chiro, Chibi, Ruby, Kula, and now, Cookie.  They also have a pet rabbit, Mr. Usagi.  (Usagi means rabbit in Japanese.)   I think that growing up with animals around has helped me to appreciate life, and I hope that BJ can also grow up with this appreciation too.  

Unfortunately, right now, we are living in a place where animals are not allowed, so BJ can't have a puppy of his own.  I have to find other opportunities to introduce BJ to animals, so the other day, HJ and I took him to the Humane Society, an animal shelter here on Maui.  Then, yesterday, my BFF, Saya, brought her puppy, Ollie, to our house. 

I can't say for sure if BJ loved the experience because he had the most confused look on his face, but it was so fun to watch!  I can't wait for the day when BJ can get a pet puppy, so he can learn to love and care for another. :-)


  1. I think BJ thought Ollie was an Ewok!

  2. Awww...I so want to get my kids a puppy!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. And OF COURSE Maui is on my list of my favorite places. We go as often as we can- and secretly dream up ways to be able to move there! :)

  3. How precious!!!

    I would be confused if a furry, buggy-eyed thing suddenly invaded my person space, too!
