The kids, part 2: Louis
That’s ‘Loo-ee’ for all you Americans. After all, Louis is 3/4 French Bulldog (with a dash of Boston Terrier to round out his mutt-liness). Weezie and I have had a serious hankering for a puppy since Jacques passed, and this weekend we finally got our fix. Louis is just shy of 8 weeks old and comes from a breeder in Eastern NC where my parents got their dog, Cooper.
Louis has only been with us for a couple days, but so far he’s adjusted remarkably well to his new surroundings. Somewhere under that fur he’s got an on-off button, because he alternates between joyous fits of playfulness and blissful slumber. We’ll get to know him better in the coming weeks, but so far we know that he likes stuffed hedgehogs, snuggle beds, and magnolia leaves.
Thanks to the moderate temperatures this weekend, we were able to spend a good deal of time outdoors. Louis enjoyed his new yard and seems content to call Hillsborough home. I did a little work around the house and he tagged right along, so here’s hoping that he’s a proper job site dog…he’ll certainly see plenty of projects over his lifetime. Welcome, pal!
