If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen my posts all about our newest addition. His name is Hovi – totally inspired by Jay-Z. Kris and I wanted to name him after something/someone we both really like. (My original suggestion was to name him “Pizza” LOL and that was veto’d very quickly.)
So, B+AB readers… meet HOVI! He is the absolute freakin cutest puppy of all time.
He is our first puppy so we are super excited (and also super exhausted) lol
Our first few hours with him! He’s sooo tiny and he’s growing so much every day.
He is currently 8 weeks and a few days old. He is a shih tzu :)
The photos below were taken yesterday.
We have a famly dog w/ my Mom + siblings (his name is Yoshi and he is a 2-year old shih tzu/poodle mix) and Kris (that’s the fiance) grew up around family dogs, so we are both familiar with taking care of these little babies. But this is our first puppy, so we are learning a lot! We have been reading and watching a ton of videos and articles all about how to be the best pack leaders for Hovi and to make sure he is a happy, healthy and obedient pup.
We have completely fallen in love!
Hi Hovi! :)
For size reference. It’s hard to show size in the photos on Instagram, but he is tiny! And so so so so cute! He will grow up to be anywhere from 10-15 lbs. Right now he is 2.5 lbs!
Hovi says thanks for looking/reading! Come back for an update + more pics :)
If you have an Instagram, we made an account for his photos —> @ItsHoviBabyWOOF <–
We couldn’t resist! And of course he can’t wear them yet (they weigh almost as much as he does) but we got a little excited lol
This one is from my Instagram (@beautyandabite)
I will be updating you next month on Hovi + blogging about our experience as first-time pet owners. If you have any tips for us, please leave them in the comments! As much as I love reading articles online, real-life tips can’t be beat! :) Or let me know if you like this post and would like to see more Hovi on B+AB :)
