December 2006 - Meet Petey

After attending an amazing Pete Huttlinger fingerstyle guitar performance in Orange County, Amy and I met this little pup at a pet store in Newport Beach.  It was love at first sight, so we brought him home to join our pack.  We named him Petey in honor of Pete Huttlinger.  Also, our rental car that day was a P.T. Cruiser, so we subsequently expanded his "official" name to "P.T. Cruiser", but we usually call him Pete or Petey.  Born 8/25/06, he is a great pup, who fit right into the family from day one. 


Above left, you see my wife holding little Petey, wearing her ring which almost looks like tungsten on this picture. On the right, you can see baby Petey just being adorable all day long. And below, Petey relaxes after a long day of being too cute.



See Petey's videos on YouTube:
