The Once And Forever Puppy

Eko has certainly grown up since I got him, but that doesn’t mean he’s grown old.  Some of his puppy habits are just as strong today as they were the day I brought him home.

Here’s Eko, the junior-size solar panel, as a puppy

And here’s Eko, the deluxe-size solar panel, a couple weeks ago

Unfortunately, we haven’t had much sun around these parts since the above photo was taken.  Chicago hasn’t quite figured out how to shake off winter – it’s been cold and/or gray for a while now and Eko is less than pleased.

“Will, call Mother Nature and remind here that it is JUNE in less than a week”

Eko was on the couch so long that I think he started to melt into it.  Can you find his fourth leg??

Eko had a bath only a few days ago, so this morning I was not eager to bring him out for a muddy run.  In retrospect, I would have brought him since he decided to demonstrate another puppy habit while I was out.

Eko’s logic: There’s been no sun, so clearly Will has no need for sunglasses

Was Eko bored? Upset? I don’t know for sure.  I just know that he stole my sunglasses from the same place he left them untouched for over a year.  I lose my cool sometimes, so I can’t fault Eko too much for the same (although I did have a few choice words when I discovered my mangled glasses).  However, I can put my next pair of sunglasses in a new place just to be safe.  I love my forever-puppy, but today was a nice reminder that there are some puppy habits I am glad are mostly behind us!
