Trading Juno for Hugo

We were planning a trip to Alaska this year (see prior blog post) but instead, we bought a pure breed french bulldog puppy, whom we named Hugo. French Bulldogs are known as the clowns of the dog world ... and Hugo delivers! For example, he loves to carry a squeaky ball in his mouth while simultaneously playing soccer with a tennis ball

We got him at 8 weeks old and now he's about 12 and we are having little success potty training - especially because he's too young to get all the shots he needs to go outside. I'm home during the summer and I've probably said "go potty" 2 million times - only for him to pee on the wee wee pad for a cookie and then hop off and go wherever he wants 2 seconds later. Hopefully outside training will be easier.

But despite that frustration, he is such a beautiful addition to our family. He likes to be carried cradled on his back like a baby, and no lap is safe if your sitting down. His grey eyes could melt an iceberg, and his prancing gait is more graceful than a reindeer's. So the trade was worth it.
