His foster mommy there took these pictures for me. He looks great :)

LOL You will all get tons of pics of this boy. Apparently he loves the camera, but is not a fan of the flash. Its probably because of his blue eyes.

Sunday at 11am seems sooooo far away. I am counting down.

November 12th, 2006, 05:53 PM
We just got home and he is amazing! He is such a beautiful boy!

Adonis was great in the car and didnt make a peep the whole way. He loved petsmart, but did prove that he needs some training. You can tell he has the basics, but really needs a brush up. He dosent pull at home, but pulls like a bull in petsmart.

The dogs all seem to get along. He tested Atticus by trying to mount him. He quickly learned that, that will not fly here. The chihuahuas also think he is scum, but they will learn.

I still have to download my pictures, but am going to give him a bath first. He got his nails clipped and is so far my best dog for that. He just stood there as if he liked it.

Hes trying to sit on my lap as I write this. He is just so amazing. I am truly in love :cloud9:

Anyways, off to the bath we go. Wish us luck I'll update later... Probably at about 9pm??? Hopefully the bath will go well. :fingerscr

Frenchy
November 12th, 2006, 05:59 PM

Hes fitting in so well. Everyone seems to like him now, and they are all sleeping together. We are having problems with his name though. Everytime I call him, Atticus comes running because they are so similar. We are thinking of other names and could use some help. He is very pretty and comfy with his sexuality lol, so we dont mind pretty boy names. So far we like Aspen and Acadia, but we are looking all over. Something to do with him being white and having blue eyes. Its all up in the air. His original name was Roxton and he dosent come to that either, so I think we can pretty well call him anything and he'll learn it :)

Frenchy

Sticking with your classical theme, what about Boreas, the north wind (Bo for short)? Or Midas, since you called him gold-butt? Or Helios, sun god?

technodoll
November 13th, 2006, 01:49 PM
or "rio" , the carnaval dog :D

i know a gorgeous white akita named "cannon", fits him soo perfectly. but this dog doesn't look too boistrous, so... i'd stay away from all the eccentric, fancy-pants names cuz he just looks so demure and un-assuming, he needs a warm, simple and cute name IMO :shrug:

Beautiful pup greaterdane, he's soooo lucky to have found you. On a side note, but related, the one time Peaches was adopted out (prior to me snaggin' her), the dude named her Atticus (which to me, was always a guys name). Personally, I love the name, and think Adonis *does* look like an Atticus (it's very Roman General - which I think suits him). In any case, love that he's home with you now and settling in :) Congrats!

November 13th, 2006, 03:07 PM
I have to say I'm really leaning towards Midas. It's regal and has that touch of gold about it. :thumbs up

(I've always wanted to call a dog Bocepheus, but it didn't suit Fingal. Just as well-the vet's office has enough trouble spelling Fingal and Bronwyn, let alone saying them!)

jiorji
November 13th, 2006, 03:37 PM

Acadia




acadia sounds so girly:shrug:

i say go for King Tut or Ramses...to keep the Egyptian theme;)

jiorji
November 13th, 2006, 03:42 PM
ooopss... adonis is from Greek mythology not Egyptian...duhh...well i still like Ramses:thumbs up
I guess I thought Egypt because Adonis's face reminds me of Anubis the dog of the underworld in Egyptian mythology.

Well we are still undecided on the name. Adonis does seem to be working now. We really like Midas and Lennex too. Adonis seems to have the most meaning though.

We also have the perfect nickname that he seems to respond to. Dobie One Canobie :) BWHAHAHA. Someone called him that at the dog park, and it has stuck.

We lost him at the dog park last night. It was so foggy, we couldnt see him. We had to go searching lol.

He is such an awesome dog. We love him to bits :)

greaterdane

3 of the 6 are chihuahuas, all under 5lbs. They are not really dog park material. A good run around the yard, or a walk around the block has them poopered lol.

I do take 3 to the park at once though.

So far everyone has asked about him. They want to know his mix, or if hes a Pharoh hound. Or they know hes a dobe and feel bad asking if he is one. I'm sure I'll get alot of comments. :)

greaterdane
November 14th, 2006, 05:15 PM

After much debate, we decided on Phoenix. I think he likes it, and is already turning around when we call it. Whoohoo, hes no longer the dog with no name lol.

You'd be surprised but its those little tiny ones that ya have to watch out for, big dogs trapped in little dog bodies :D

Love the mini blanket, cannot see does it have the straps that go under his belly and around his back legs so you don't have to worry about shifting


Yes :) It has thigh straps and a belly strap. The tag even said mini lol. They had the dog ones, but they were a bit snug on his tummy. We got it at horseworld :)

What a happy gang! Atticus could be the twin to a dane in my nabe. Phoenix is a very appropriate name given this sweet boy's history (I do confess I quite liked "Adonis" but I can see where there might be some of the "What? I thought you were talking to him" and "Yes? Did someone call me for a treat? here I am!").
