      Some photos from the first weeks—

      I posted a few photos in my introductory post, but here are a few more. The first is from when the gal was about 8.5 weeks; the second w/ a friend's toddler, at about 10 weeks; the third from about 11.5 weeks; and the last from last Friday, at a bit under 16 weeks—from her puppy class, proving that she isn't *always* just staring lovingly at you.

      What a little cutie! She is growing so fast. The picture with the toddler is precious.

      The one with the toddler—as much as she will practice bite inhibition with us, she didn't for a second with the little one; she's a lamb with infants and young children—melts my heart. It's as though they are sharing "Yes, I'm a toddler too.​"

      One more from tonight, meeting our friend's border collie for the first time. The border (whom I've known since he brought him home) is a brilliant, beautiful, lovely dog, who often doesn't like puppies or kids. But they did pretty well together, and even played a bit.

      Her name is Hokule'a—it's Hawaiian for "Star of Gladness," the name for Arcturus, which was the main navigational star for the Polynesians—but her call name is Hoku (long -o- and long -u-).

      It's a very simple name for people from Hawai'i (I am), but it kind of confounds most people the first time they hear it. But she is, indeed, a very happy little star, and so much fun.
