Laying on the couch with me, licking me a lot for a long time, following me from room to room, blowing in his face, looking out the window watching people play tennis, meeting other dogs.

Vacuum cleaners, hearing another dog barking outside or in the TV, or hearing just about any weird sound he hears outside.

Favorite Toy:
Anything that squeaks or makes a sound. Anything he can squeeze, crush, or thrash around with his mouth.

Favorite Food:
He loves anything and everything, especially other dog's food. He always wants what someone else has. He likes to gobble his treats like there's no tomorrow. He loves greenies and rawhide.

Favorite Walk:
To Simba's house or anyone's door he thinks is Simba's house.

Best Tricks:
He learned to sit on command and to lay down flat on command.

Arrival Story:
After taking care of Simba at my place for one whole week, I wanted to have a pup around forever! I had the best time with Simba. It was such a wonderful experience as well as watching him grow up since he was a pup. I asked Simba's owner if he can contact his breeder to see if she is expecting any litters. It just so happened that she just had 2 males born on 10/25/05. I went to visit the breeder on 11/12/05 and immediately fell in love with one, which started the forever long wait heehee =). The breeder said I can visit whenever I like to watch him grow and to take pics =), so I visited 3 times b4 he was old enough to go home with me. A week b4 xmas, Kovu came home with me and it's been so great having him with me =)!

Kovu's adult color will most likely become a Gold/Tan, Black Mask (just like mommy). He's from his mom's very 1st litter. She only had 2 male pups and Kovu was the smaller and younger of the 2. Kovu's brother didn't have a white spot on his forehead like Kovu did. Kovu suffered from a rare liver disease, Hepatacutaneous Syndrome, at the end of his life. It was difficult to treat and eventually had to be put to sleep. He will be immensely missed! I will always love you Kovu! ~Daddy~
