Who is This Puppy?

Who is this handsome pup? The truth is that you guys know nearly as much about Zero as I do. Our first week together was a whirlwind of late night whining, early morning wakeups and lots of pee breaks in between. (Most such breaks, I’m happy to report, occurred outside.)

Now that we’re settling into our new routine, it’s fun to learn more about his personality and disposition each day. Because while I once thought of puppies as blank slates, I know now that these guys each come prepackaged with their own unique character.

And you don’t get to custom order it on Amazon!

So who is this Zero character?

A dapper gentledog, like Eko was?

A wild beast, like Penny is?

Or, a unique pup all his own! Yes, this is certainly the answer.

The other fun part is that Zero is along for the ride as well. He’s still figuring himself out, just like us.

And like us, he isn’t quite sure what to make of those catcher’s-mitt paws of his.

“Excuse me, Paw? Why are you so big?”

There is one thing we do know for sure…

Zero is already a total mama’s boy!

With that being said, we’re taking bets about our boy’s future. If you fancy a dance with chance, let me know your guess about what Zero’s personality will be (and for fun, also include a guess at adult height/weight). Step right up and give it your best shot!

He seems much more laid back than Penny. Zero will certainly have puppy characteristics for a while. I’m guessing he won’t be as mellow as Echo or as wild as Miss Penny, but somewhere in between. And very smart! He’ll do great with learning the way Echo did.

I think he is going to be a timid follower of Penny. Always checking with mom before he follows Penny. He has some ginormous paws so I say he will be 2 or 3 inches taller Penny and about 95 lbs.
