We Haz Puppy!

Kodi and his begging bowl Hello friends! Meet the newest addition to the Pamani family - Kodiak Pup-Daddy Pamani (Kodi for short)! He's a 9-week old chocolate labrador retriever and 18-ish pounds of snuggles and D'AWWWWWs. I'm so freaking in love with this little furball, it's almost sickening. I am officially becoming one of "those" people that is obsessed with their pets. Yup. It's happening and I don't care. I am fully committed.

This past weekend has been consumed with excitement, snuggles, playtime, running around, too many giggles, and a whole lot of peeing.

We have honestly been so lucky with how well behaved Kodi is and how perfectly he fits into our family and our lives. He is probably the most low maintenance puppy on the face of the earth. In two days he has only barked twice, has mastered the concept of making business outside, has slept through every night without any whining/whimpering/crying, has met TONS of family friends and has been nothing but loving and playful with them, has learned his way from his little room to the backyard and has even mastered the concept of backyard steps, has gotten his paws wet in our pool, has had his first bath, and has started to learn basic commands such as Sit, No biting, Fetch, Come here, and Let's go this way!

And his personality? Friends, this is definitely my dog, ain't no question about it. We have taken him out several times a day to his play area so that he can run around off his leash and play with a few toys. We like to give him his water there so he can pee in between play sessions. So little Kodiak has discovered that once he has had his nice long drink from his water bowl, he can tip the bowl over and then run around the backyard carrying the steel bowl in his mouth. We call it his begging bowl. He's ready for his life as a traveling nomad. So am I.

It's been a whirlwind of a weekend between integrating Kodi and spending time with my bestie Nat (who was in town for the weekend) but I feel like I'm ready to take on the world today. So that's just what I'm going to do.

Happy Monday friends and lovers! Hope you're having a fabulous start to your week too!

Sending so much puppy love, xx Nikbear
