The Chosen Puppeh!

Many of you followed great interest the story about Martha Stewart's quest for a new puppeh. We have an update!

As you recall, ever since Martha's sweet pup Paw Paw passed away in April '08, Martha has been searching for a Chow Chow, and has finally found one!

Introducing... one of Paw Paw's grandson's... Genghis Khan!


[and two of his sisters:]


Back to Genghis in all his square-faced, Mongolian conquering glory!


Sender-Inner Eliad! WHAT A WONDERFUL CHOICE! This pup is too prosh for words! Check out Martha's blog for more puppeh adventures...

Aww, the pup has the anime smiley eyes. So kawaii!

Hehe - when Martha calls the dog in from the yard, she'll be yelling "Kaaahhhnnn!!"
*Star Trek nerd giggle fit*

So stubular! So cute!

Now, if only the Obama's would announce the First Puppeh.

 |  Dec 04, 2008 at 10:10 PM

Maybe it should be Genghis Conn, then. ;)

But the blog says "I never ended up taking possession of that particular puppy. Instead, I decided to wait for another litter and I think things are right this time... Karen has told me that little Khan is very happy in his new home, where he lives with Daisy, a sweet fourteen-year-old chow chow."


 |  Dec 04, 2008 at 10:26 PM

No, Izzh, she decided not to take Khan and wait for another litter. This is Genghis Khan, a different dog.

It's like horse racing (if you ever read the stuff under the horse's name), where you have Chopped Liver and Liver & Onions and wind up with a new horse named Chopped Onions. Same type of naming continuity here.

She'll have him making table decorations in no time.

I'm so depressed. This dog is richer than I'll ever be. Sigh...

 |  Dec 04, 2008 at 11:22 PM

Well, I'm glad for puppeh and the owner...but really, naming your pet after Genghis Khan? Well, what's in a name, I guess....

 |  Dec 04, 2008 at 11:40 PM

@ warrior rabbit: For some reason I think my (unfortunate) high school nickname will be far more cute on this pup than it ever was on me. *le sigh* Kids can be so cruel.

 |  Dec 04, 2008 at 11:48 PM

I'm sorry puppeh, but I must snuzzle you.


 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 12:26 AM

can they see at all?? lol looks like they need glasses

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 01:08 AM

Awww, that's one cute puppy! Congratulations to Martha for choosing Genghis Khan. I agree with above posters who say can you imagine her calling out "Kkkhhhaaaannnn!" aka Captain Kirk's yell in the Star Trek movie. Hehe.

@Katie: LOL!

@Hon Glad: I'm giggling my ass off because I read your post as: "She'll make him into a table decoration in no time".

@Meg: I read the title and my hopes were dashed when I saw the post, thinking I'd find out which Shibu pup was remaining with the human parents. But this was so cute, I bounced away happy anyway. Prosh indeed!

I want to grab him and squeeze him and squish him and kiss him and bite him and love him and MAKE HIM MY OWN!

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 03:37 AM

Cute and VERRRY furry!!!!

Gail (the first one)
 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 04:25 AM

OMG...that last pic is the MOST anerable Chow I've ever seen! I can say that because mine, Miao Yin, is HALF-Chow, half-peke. Whew. :)

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 04:59 AM

HOW prosh are the sistahs? Eep!

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 05:01 AM

I will adopt you, sisters! Even though I don't like dogs that much, those look half-cat or something!

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 05:24 AM

Kewl! My Siamese kitteh is named Genghis. He was a wild child, thus the name, but is now a big ol' loveable lump.

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 06:06 AM

How can anything be this stubbular? How?

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 06:07 AM

I really can't see the big whoop about this at all.

Never having been a radical in my life, I have felt that no breeders should get any attention at all while millions of cats and dogs die in shelters.

Decent people should adopt, but then, it's Martha.

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 06:07 AM

I adore the little triangle flap ears. I want to nibble them.

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 06:09 AM

I had a foster chow once! *is jealous of Martha, yet again*

Mindy had her puppies last night!

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 06:37 AM

He looks like Martha Stewart herself, only cute.

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 06:40 AM

I wish she would have chosen all three :-(

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 06:52 AM

These puppies are ADORABLE. They look like they have "^_^" faces on.

[Why yes, yes they do. ☺ - Ed.]

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 07:14 AM

@ Katie. Bwahahahah Thanks now I will be hearing Captian Kirk All Day KAHHHHHHHHHN

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 07:18 AM

I read that as "Caption Kirk". Still works.

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 07:29 AM

Chows bite.

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 07:40 AM


 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 07:48 AM

Carrie- congratulations, you're a puppygrandmother!Best wishes to all five of you.

About this puppy, which I read 'will be turned into a table decoration,' too. It doesn't really look real, now does it? I'd like to see how big it is today, the stubbular little beauty with the unfortunate name. Will people be naming their dogs 'Saddam Hussein' in the next millenium? I guess Jews have a longer historical memory, maybe. *sheesh*. But names always break down to more familiar names, so this one will be 'gengy' or 'gissy' or something, I'm sure. CUUUUTE!

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 07:53 AM

Hold on, half chow, half peke- how does that work exactly? Either a peke with a big ego and ability to stretch or a Chow that bends down easily? What? And, I'd like a picture, please.

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 07:55 AM

OMG!! Someone please set up a webcam on these puppies. This would tide me over this very sad day.

*mourns for the little shiba pups who will be leaving this weekend*

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 08:25 AM

"I haz such fluff-a-tude, I cannot see nusingk"!
He's SO cute! OMG, I shall faint now.

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 08:45 AM

but then if Chopped Onions had a sibling would it be called Liver Liver?

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 08:51 AM

Wow, something here actually struck me as not cute. I just do not like Chow Chows.

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 09:01 AM

I love Martha, and am so happy for her new pupster! :)

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 09:05 AM

Berthaservant, I can give you an even odder Ghenghis Khan homage...Go to YouTube and look up "Dschinghis Khan" (I think I got the spelling right) or "Moskau."

A German 80s ABBA-esque band, in glam costumes, doing a song that is about a Mongolian conqueror. They were apparently really big in Europe, in the US not so much.

The song is catchy, though...Look for Buffalax's "translation" of how he hears the lyrics. Very funny.

And oh, cute puppies!! So blocky and fuzzy!

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 09:25 AM

Gah. No, the song is not about Ghenghis Khan. The GROUP is named after him. The SONG is about Moscow. It's a German song about a Russian city, by a German group named after a Mongolian conqueror. I need to go back to bed.

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 09:26 AM

He's sweet and stubbular and all and I want to squish him and call him George. But what *really* got me was "We're Ghengis' sistahs". Right! "Dontcha mess wit' him!"

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 09:30 AM


 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 09:49 AM

soooo cute! too bad most chows have such unfriendly personalities.

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 09:55 AM

Ghengis Khan, Ghengis Khan
Here's a song for Ghengis Khan
It's not a town, it's Ghengis Khan

...and we're done.

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 09:57 AM

OK, that's *four* times that Shatner gag has been used on CO this morning, twice by me. I'm not setting the bar high, here, people. C'mon, it's Friday, somebody do something better! Make me proud.

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 10:00 AM

We had a dog named Spiro Agnew. ;)

@ant man bee, I think that's when they start with the hybrids and end up with something like Livoni.

warrior rabbit
 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 10:18 AM

My gosh, they are the cutest things I ever saw. I just want to hug them to death

 |  Dec 05, 2008 at 10:18 AM

Theo, have you seen (?) the Robot Chicken episode where Kirk and Spock are running a pizza parlor and Kahn is their delievery boy who fails at his job, so Kirk gets to yell... wait for it... KHAN!!!!!!!

Made me giggle.

To anyone who knows - How old do Chows need to be before their tongues turn blue?
