That’s right, my little secret is a puppy! Surprise 🙂
Bringing Clark home was even a bit of a surprise to me. I was visiting my friend’s family Christmas weekend and I ended up bringing him home with me on a whim!
Clark is a chiweenie-beagle or a chiweagle. His mom is a chiweenie (Chihuahua/Weenier dog mix) and his dad is a beagle. Their pairing was NOT planned, but it made for some adorable puppies! And he’s actually the perfect apartment dog. He’s pretty lazy most of the time, but loves playtime with Cody. He weighed 4.2 lbs at his vet appointment earlier this week and I’m hoping he stays pretty small. I never realized how grown-up Mystique had gotten until I got Clark – now she’s huge compared to him!

I’ve still got a lot to learn about being puppy parents and my cats aren’t quite adjusted to life with Clark yet, but we’re getting there. Khaleesi seems to “mother” him sometimes and plays with him occasionally but Mystique still doesn’t seem to know what he is yet. Clark’s favorite things to do is lick my face, chase his tail and bite my ankles. I swore I’d never own a tiny, ankle-biting dog but well … here I am and he’s pretty okay 🙂
I’ve included a small handful of the hundreds of photos I’ve taken of him in the few weeks we’ve had him. He doesn’t seem to understand that I’m a photographer yet and completely ignores the camera so excuse the iPhone quality on a few of these! If you want to keep up-to-date on Clark, I’ll be sharing more photos on Instagram with the hashtag #clarkhustonthedog.
