Awww so precious!! She's adorable. Gosh I remember when Brunster was that tiny hehe ;)


First name that came to mind for me was "Scarlett" lol. I dunno why. She's cute none the less and I'm sure she'll get hte perfect name :) Naming them is the best part!! Poor Bruno went his first day here without a name lol.

awww very sweet! and Duchess was a pink collar baby too! haha. gotta love em. to me naming can be fun but stressful...especially for a dog who you have to use that name for training lol so you always have to test the name by saying it out loud lol as if you are calling the dog to come lol. haha. Im sure we all do it. please keep us updated on your little babe.

Luv my Bruno - Scarlett is kinda nice
Lapdog - lol it's so true I say all the names I have on my list out loud. I pretend Im calling her!

I have a couple of names I thinking about, Savanna, Daisy, & Jasmine. The list gets long and then short, long and short. Your right Lapdog it is a bit stressful but fun.
Thanks all!!

Congrats on the newest addition to your family! As Dobedad said, enjoy the peace and quiet now while you can. Not to mention the unscathed hands and arms. I think our Karma has a bit of gator in her.

Uncle Fester, that's a good one!!! OMG, you guy's are starting to scare me with all the "get your sleep while you can" stuff. I only sleep about 5 hours a night now. Are you telling me I am going to get less ?? Maybe I will have the perfect pup and she will sleep right through the night. LOL

What a cutie! Java was a 'yellow collar', but it was a toss-up between yellow & pink - I let the breeder decide, since 'our' pup was the only one not going to a show home. Pink was a bit more mellow - Java was the only pup awake when her 10 other sibs were trying to sleep, nipping on ears to get the party started! And the one who insisted on teething on the cuff of my jean jacket!

Don't worry about sleep - the older they get the later they will sleep in. I started to put a sheet over the crate at night - not only to keep out drafts (and you'd be surprised at how toasty it gets in the crate just from their body heat cuddled up in a polar fleece blanket), but to keep out the early morning sun. BTW - stock up on Wal-Mart fleece baby blankets - perfect size, inexpensive and they wash up well. Baby wipes (unscented) are handy to have as well - you never know what they might step in!

Looking forward to seeing the puppy pics!

She is too cute. I tried the blanket over the kennel once and found pieces of it pulled into the kennel and chewed up. Never did that again. If anything was near Doodles kennel, he found a way to pull it in and shred it. Curtains, paper, whatever. What fun! I miss those days sometimes.

what a little cutie-pie!!! can't wait to watch her grow. Molly is the first female dog I ever had and she was already named. don't ask why, but I always wanted a female named Lucy. maybe as she gets older and you get to know her something will jump out at you. that's how I named my second child, Catherine. we left the hosptial with no name and a day or so later, she just was a Catherine.

good luck and congratulations

Exactly. I see on the breeders site where she recommends tethering for small puppies, even tethering them to the bed while sleeping. She can't be serious?
Puppies will chew their bedding, chew the bed frame, and then chew the leash, etc. That can result in impactions and some impactions are life threatening, at best it just results in lots of damaged property. Not a smart suggestion. I don't think leaving a puppy on a tether unsupervised (while you are sleeping counts as unsupervised) is a smart or safe suggestion for any puppy (working, show, or pet, mouthy not mouthy, etc), so many bad things can happen. =( A crate is your best bet or an exercise pen with safe toys to chew when the puppy needs to chew on something.

By the way I had that happen too. Somehow my boy scooted his crate next to the bed and tore up a brand new down king size comforter. And he was in a e-collar at the time since he was licking his neuter wounds, but the e-collar didn't stop him from eating the comforter thru his crate =)

Both those stories made me think of what Monte has started doing. I keep a couple of piddle pads by the back door for my small elderly female dog. Since the weather's been so hot I usually have the back door at least open a crack. So what Monte has take to doing when he's outside is somehow getting hold of those pads thru the crack and pulling them outside where he can play with them at his leisure. The first time he did it I came back in the room and saw no pads on the floor. I thought I had just put them down, but sometimes I forget things, ya know. So I got out two more and put them down. When I went outside later I found the two original pads in the yard. Since then he's pulled them outside every chance he gets. I caught him in the act the last time. I don't know how he even gets hold of them because the sliding door isn't open wide enough for him to fit his muzzle thru.

I also had a similar incident, not with a pup though, I was dog sitting a friend's lab, and she was crated when we when out one evening. I was sure she wasn't near anything, but somehow she got a hold of my husband's leather harley biker jacket. Yeah didn't lose any $$ on that accident......
