Here are a few shapshots (since ‘pictures’ is far too normal) of my favorite baby dog. His name is Xuxu (pronounced ‘shoo-shoo’. I know it’s strange. It means something along the lines of ‘my little vegetable’ in portuguese. It must be one of those endearing name things that don’t translate into foreign languages well. He’s only blessing me with his company for six-ish short weeks but oh, how I love him. He’s precious. Never before have I enjoyed daily walks in the fabulous rainy weather we’ve been having. I can’t wait for the beautiful fall we’re going to have. More to come later in the week.
