Now that I'm on Twitter, I've been learning quite a bit about the people I'm following and, sadly, today I learned of a tragic accident. According to Martha Stewart's tweets, her new lil pup Ghenghis Khan passed away. In a "tragic propane explosion," the breeder lost 17 Chows both boarders and residents. Martha was waiting until a good time to bring the babe home from Karen Tracy and, while she didn't say there were any human fatalities, unfortunately her little puppy "perished in the blaze." We know all dogs go to heaven, and my heart goes out to Martha, the breeder, and everyone who loved those pups.
I'd have to call Martha Stewart's new puppy alert this year's version of our current first dog watch! She picked the cutie Chow Chow two weeks ago, and he just squeezed into our top new pet of '08 poll with days to spare. Our pick for puppy of the year is named Ghenghis Khan – at about 9-weeks-old now, I'm betting we'll see much more of the lil guy when he joins his new sisters in 2009.
Well, we've been waiting for word on which lil Chow Chow Martha Stewart would be adding to her family, and she's finally made her choice! Meet Ghenghis Khan, this adoro grandson of the late Paw Paw. He's just seven weeks old and the only boy in his litter (with two sisters) – I wonder if lil Sharkey and Francesca are ready for him?!
Turns out Martha waited for another litter so those pups we saw her cuddling with before (including a different pup named "Khan") have found other happy homes. Check out another cute shot of this pooch when you read more
