Weekly Kafka

Two random Kafka facts for you:
1. He now has a blankie that he carries around. It's his dog blanket that we put in his crate. This weekend he has insisted on going into his crate, grabbing the thing, and parading around with it. He loves it.
2. Kafka loves to lick. Not anything specific, although I have to fight him off and run away once I put on my lotion. He will lick anyone or thing, at any time, regardless of race, creed, color, smell, texture, temperature, etc. etc. etc. He truly is all about equal opportunity. The opportunity to introduce his tongue to everything. on. earth.

Loves to ride in the car and drink coffee (see cup).

And yeah, he's getting big. About 40 lbs and about 5 1/2 months old. And he is immensely exuberant. This evening, my sister and husband and I all watched as he casually leapt onto the top of his big-dog crate. Holy shit. I thought it was going to CAVE IN.

We all yelled, "NO!" and he half slipped off and ducked with his tail in between his legs.

It's alright though, because then his blankie caught his eye and he pounced on it.

(This is his Kong Frisbee, not the blankie, but I think you get the idea.)

Photos are all before the snow came!

OMG, the first thing that came to my head when I saw this was how big he's gotten! So quickly! Must be all that coffee ;)

That's so cute he's fallen in love with his blanky :)

god, he looks beautiful! i do love those dogs...they always look neat, right?

i don't mean neat in a 70s kind of a way. like, neat-o. i mean cleanish. crisp.

Isn't he getting big? Maybe it is coffee, Flossy, because he is crazy All. The. Time.

He is really gorgeous. When we were looking to get one, we looked all over the internet at different breeders and they mostly had pictures of their dogs either hunting (mid-point or carrying) or showing. Sometimes there were portraits, but by far the pictures weren't well-taken. So i'm hoping to get some of his firecracker-iness across.
What a good boy he is.
