We got a brand new puppy last week! He's a French bulldog and his name is Hugo. He technically belongs to Lacie my roommate but I am helping to raise him. He sleeps as I type (thank god). Hugo is just over two months old as of this writing and he's just beginning to learn all of the basic dog behaviors (pee outside (usually) eat and drink from doggy bowls, fetch, tug-o-war, walk (for short distances), pee inside (bad dog!) and chew on socks). So far he's been quite the handful but he's a very sweet puppy who is affectionate and loves to be around us. Pictures included. The 'napping' picture is included to show scale.
