Counting Down

It'll be another 10 days or so before Helios arrives. It seems that my baby brother is quite a character. May I quote the breeder:

"Yes he is a thinker, always thinking of what mischief he can get up to!!! He loves food and toys "

Now what else can I do that's fun?

"The pups have been have a training session each day. Sometimes it is lead training and other times it is grooming. Mr Helios can throw an bit of a tantrum if he doesn't want to do something and sulks! He is getting better. All the puppies are doing with the lead training sessions is learning to walk on the lead without jumping up and down and squealing (which sometimes Helios still does!!). "

Pouty boy

"They were VERY naughty last night :) Helios was the first one caught but the other three were naughtier! We planted a lemon tree in the dog yard a few months ago and to protect it while it is young it has four steel posts and wire around it. Last night when I went over to put them away for the night there was Helios sitting inside the wire and the other three running around teasing him. I got him out and told him he was naughty and went into the shed to wash their dishes and get thier bedtime biscuit. When I came out Helios was sitting by the shed door being a good boy and the other three had got under the wire and were setting about destroying the tree. They were told off and put to bed."

The trouble makers...

Looking for more trouble?

Actually, the humans have been saying that Helios look like Tommy when he's looking serious.
This is the closest 'serious' picture I have of Tommy:

Do they look alike?

The humans have already started making fun of me by saying that the next time we go out together, strangers are going to think that Tommy is the Dad, I'm the Mum and Helios is the baby. Grrr....

Thinker - ok got a bit of me

Pouty - hmmmm I think Jack does that and if I may add, Rafv too.

Trouble maker - hehe sounds like you Herbie.

Serious looking - Definitely Tommy

Oops he may be call Tommy Kia then.

I am so used to be called Jack & Joey's daddy (unfair, just because they are smaller than me). High time strangers focus their attention on Helios.

I cant wait for Helios to arrive.

I like the pouty look.

You must be looking forward to Helios' arrival.

Huskee Boy said...

Hey Herbie,
Muahaha.. I though of a real good deal for you. Since Helios now has a bit of reputation as being a 'trouble maker', in future you can blame all your mischiefs on him!!
He does have a solemn look though.. like he has the world on his little shoulders! How sweet! My mum wants me to tell u she can't wait to meet Helios!! Oh 10 days more? That means I have to count all the toes on my 2 front paws..

Fu Fu said...

Woh Helios sure can pout. Herbie, are you excited that your baby brother is coming soon?

Joe Stains said...

Rafv said...

haha. Tommy kia..Sounds so ah-beng.. Anyway, I can't wait to see you Helios! (If your mum allow me to meet you.. I know she scares that you learn bad habit from me.. haha. but I think you have already got such a ****!!!

Helios is the cutest of all the puppies! My mum says so, and I agree.

Oh, and mum wants to go try out the massage. I mean, let me try it out. But dad says he'll think about it, hmph!

Esther said...

Er, that was me, Rusty! :)

Butchy & Snickers said...

Ten more days??? We bet you can hardly wait. Helios is so cute, even if he is the troublemaker. Since he is the troublemaker, he must be the smartest puppy, hehehe! Just think of all the things you two can do to get into mischief, tee hee!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

i have a feeling Helios is gonna grow up into a reaaaallly handsome boy!

i'm sure you can't wait for him to join you at home so you can play with him!! but be sure to teach him some doggy manners if he's rude to you, Herbie!

The breeder takes such nice pictures! We can't wait to meet Helios too!

Luna said...

Helios is sure the most handsome (and pouty too)with nice golden colour in that photo with his siblings. He got such distinguish face..

oh.. and I find the dark brown line vertically down across both eyes is cool!

Sunshade said...

OMG, your are getting your own STINKY soon!!!

I have to say, Helios does have that thinker look, especially with the streak down his forhead!!

I bet your mom is just sooooo excited!

Does he have to be quarantine when he arrives in Singapore?? STINKY will have to be in quarantine for "21" days when he goes to Taiwan......

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade
