Therapy puppy

Our Honeybee works hard. Even tho she's just a baby.
She's only 10 weeks old here. And she's already started her job! Loving her people. Encouraging them to be the best they can be!

Please excuse the fact that Noah is wearing Pauly's size 3T shirt! LOL! Not sure who dressed him?
And the food on him is from finishing breakfast. Hungry guys let food fly!
And the need for a haircut! Well, I have been begging him to let me trim it and he refuses. So I've dreaded doing the shaved head. I do so love his hair! But if he won't let me trim it..............

Honeybee fascinates him! We have to be careful, Noah's curiosity makes him vulnerable to puppy scratches.

Noah studies her and watches her. He "tells" us all about her with his sweet voice and his little words like "byo bga k". No we don't know what that means, but the way he "talks" is so gentle and with great purpose, you just have to agree with him! We love every minute of it. He has such a soft heart. If Julius steals his toy he cries with anguish and sadness our hearts break with him.

Noah is not able to repeat words we say to him. But he mimics the sounds of others voices! He's so good at it he can fool us into thinking we hear someone else!

There is so much for Noah to see and learn about on a puppy. Good thing she has small teeth. They may be slightly poky, but they aren't able to hurt much.

               Noah likes her but he's not quite sure yet what she's good for!

Noah likes tongues. Noah still enjoys a random spit. Wow! look at that tongue Noah! LOL!

                              Yup, Noah's tongue still works too! :o)

Honeybee is beginning to wonder if Noah does anything besides watch!

            Noah likes everything about her. But what do you do with her?

                 Yes! We can touch tongues! That is what she's good for!
                                                        Perfect!

We are still waiting on the Chromosome test results for Noah. They said the Kabuki test was too $$. But if he does not have DS, they might pay for the Kabuki test.

Noah is now walking along the furniture! He won't take any steps without hanging on. But to see him walk along the furniture is exciting!
We looked high and low for a used gait trainer, but no luck. We might be able to get one made out of weighted PVC pipe! Insurance won't pay even with our PTs recommendation.

  1. Hi Elizabeth, I got your email and will respond tomorrow, but saw you mention the used gait trainer. Have you checked with Goodwill/Easter Seals in St. Paul? I am almost positive one was listed in the available equipment email I got this week. Love you, my friend!

  2. Elizabeth it is so good to see photo's of Noah :) he has grown so much. He sure is interested in his new furry friend :) I love his hair like it is it use to make me so sad when some random person came along at the orphanage and cut all the children's hair, it was a stressful experience for the little ones probably why he doesn't like it cutting now :( I understand why you like to keep the boys hair short but he looks gorgeous with his longer hair x Hope all goes well with any tests Noah has. Please give him a great bit hug and lots of kisses from his very best friend Donna xxx Hugs and kisses to mosie and all the other children too xxxxx
