Lychi the Pug

I'd like to introduce the newest member for our family - Lychi the Pug!!

Having a pug has been a lifelong dream for Anh.

Over the years of Anh talking about pugs and seeing pugs on calendars and movies and YouTube clips, posters and cards and toys and everywhere around the house, I've grown fond of their weird yet wonderfully adorable face.

We purchased Lychi from a family of pug breeders in Mundaring, a town in the hills of WA. They were a nice family, obviously animal lovers with three or four pugs running around on the lawn together with a cat and the goat tied to a pole.  Their house didn't have power from a freak storm a few days ago, but they still welcomed us and offered us drinks.

When they finally showed us the puppies, I think my heart melted.  

Eight little pugs in a bucket all staring up to me with their puppy dog eyes.  It would have been a sin to not to take one!

So we took two!  Lolz.

One for us and one for Anh's sisters.

For over a week now, Anh and I have been taking care of our baby Lychi.  She's very smart and is on her way to being fully toilet trained.  She already knows how to come over, sit and (sorta) stay.

She's the most adorable little thing.  She follows us all around the house and sits and lies with us when watching TV or when playing on the PS3.  She sleeps well at night and gets very excited when its dinner time.

When we're at work, she hangs out with her brother Oates who lives not far from us. (I'm quite sure Oates is the goofy one of the siblings - just look at them eyes! lolz).

Certainly, having a puppy is a huge responsibility.  Anh and I are having to wake up early everyday to feed Lychi. (7AM on a Sunday?!!) We're always worrying about getting home early and we're not having second thoughts about going out because we're thinking of who's going to look after our baby.

I know we're sounding like parents, because having a puppy is certainly good training for it.  Instead of diapers I have dog training pads which need replacing.  There's puppy milk to buy.  Have to worry medications and making sure she's not hot or cold at night.

But Lychi is all worth it.  We love her and she's definitely family now.  We can't wait when she's older and we can run around with her and wrestle with her.  

I want to wear her on my head lolz.

She's just so cute.
