Baloo, aptly named after The Jungle Book character, is an 11-week-old English black lab puppy who’s so cute that during his session, literally every person that walked by was compelled to stop and ask about him. Can you blame them!? He is all paws and ears right now, with a squishy round belly that makes him look like he’s waddling more than walking.

He’s a brave little explorer and incredibly smart too. He already sits patiently for treats and makes a beeline for his potty spot when it’s time to get down to business. He’s growing like crazy and it was so fun to meet him in this fleeting puppy stage.

Of course we can’t overlook the queen of the house, a lovely rescued kitty named Cersei:
