Nothing like a daughter on twitter who has funny friends, that’s what I always say.
Yeh, the time has come for sweet little Iko to be put in her adorable puppy place. It’s one thing when she bites the ass of a family member, but the poor housekeeper… I don’t think so!
The shedevil is tons of fun and we are loving (almost) every minute of her, but the ass biting… not so much. As I said to her the other day, “No one bites MY ass without permission, kiddo.” TMI?
So, she learned to sit at 9 weeks, is closing in on giving paw and has been housebroken since we brought her home except for the occasional excited peeing for Jana’s boyfriend. But the nipping needs to be nipped, so let the games begin.
Seriously, though, how could you be mad at this face?
Yeh, pretty corny post title. And yes, I have become that weird girl that posts pictures of puppies on her Facebook page. And I am damn proud of it.
For those who are not regular readers, I lost my best friend on earth almost 8 weeks ago. Mel, my Lab of almost 13 years, died suddenly and took me down. I literally cried for 3 weeks.
And then I stopped.
I realized, I am a dog person. As simple as that. I am not the type of person who can walk into their house and not have a four-legged heartbeat burst with joy at the site of me. Let’s face it, I am a canine-induced egomaniac. And I am not embarrassed to say that life without that unconditional love was simply too hard for me. This does not mean I am over the loss of Mel. Or that I could ever replace her. It is more a testament to what an amazing dog she was that I needed to have another right away.
So I would like to introduce you all to the next chapter in my dog-loving life:
Iko Iko Levinson.
For those who are music fans or hail from New Orleans, you will say things like, ‘Hey now’ or ‘cool’ or ‘which version, Dr. John or the Grateful Dead?‘ Or if you are a real music fan, ‘The Dixie Cups‘
If you are not a music fan, click this link to read about the song and it’s lore, and click the artists above to hear all the versions.
She has been home with us only a couple of days but we have already learned this one undeniable truth:
It is simply impossible to be sad in the presence of a puppy.
Another chapter in the life of ‘follow that car!’
We were behind Mr. Iko Iko from Connecticut on the way out of the Midtown Tunnel on the Manhattan side. Luckily we stopped at a red light as we made a left towards the FDR.
Both Gary and I felt that this was the license plate we were most jealous of so far. To the point where we considered seeing if it is available in New York.
Of course everyone knows it would be way cooler if it were from Louisiana. But what is the shot it is available there?
Oh, to always have a charged camera. I would have been really cranky if I missed this one.
Talkin’ ’bout, hey now, hey now…
