She's 5 weeks old and so, so, so sweet!
She had just gotten a bath when we went to visit her,
so I wish we would have taken a picture once she'd dried -
what a puffy, fluffy fur ball!
She was so nervous at first but after about 20 minutes,
she was giving me "kisses" and snuggling right up to us.
It was meant to be. She's ours next week and I cannot wait!
(Is it weird that I ***LOVED*** that I could smell her puppy-breath?)
Brett wants "Queenie" (think of the 80's flick The Burbs with Tom Hanks). As much as I hate making a joke out of our dog, I must admit I hadn't ruled it out (it had potential) but now I really do not think our little girl looks like a "Queenie". To me Queenie is a pampered, prissy show-dog and this little one is so not that. To me she seems sweet, adorable, loyal, and cuddly.
So no Queenie. Sorry, babe.
On the drive home we brainstormed with the kids and everyone in the entire family contributed to the list of possibilities (it may be obvious that some came from a 4-year old. It may also be obvious that some came from a 33-year old man who had a hard time taking the task seriously). Here they are in no particular order:
MISSY (as in Mistletoe, since she was my Christmas gift)
FRENCHIE (because we got In & Out French Fries after meeting her)
and lastly, one name we loved but won't use:
SARA (we thought the story behind thsi was cute, since our puppy comes from SARAtoga Springs, UT - but unfortunately we have the most awesome cousin named Sara and it's just not nice to name your dog the same name as close friends or family)
And there you have it.
We're open to any other suggestions.
What does she look like to you?
