Here's a picture of our new puppy... she isn't home with us yet (not until this weekend).

When we took this picture she was only 4 weeks old. She had been to the vet that day and had just eaten, so I got about 15 minutes before she went to dream land. She's still with the breeder and her mom.

As of today, we still haven't decided on a name. We have a small bucket filled with slips of paper with different potential puppy names. We may have to wait a little while until we get a feel for her personality.

Let's see... we have Glory, Bria, Tawny, Kaylee, Terra, Buffy, Hana, Faith, Trixy, May, Lily, Eli (Eleanor). We went through the bucket last night and eliminated about half before we got down to these. I'm a Buffy fan and I think my son wants to name her Buffy... but we'll see. Her mother is named "Idaho Belle" (Ida) and the grandmother is "Anna Belle" (Belle...which is my brother's dog). So we may name her after the two... for example, if we go with Buffy it would be Buffy Belle of Idaho... although that sounds a little silly now that I see it on the screen.

I think May Belle would be cute... but we just can't decide yet. And we may actually come up with something different, who knows.

I go get her Saturday!

She will be "almost" 8 weeks old. Very young I realize, but I won't be able to get her the other weekend we were hoping for, which was at 9 1/2 weeks.

The breeder tells me she's doing well and we're all very anxious to get her home. We have just about everything we need... for now, anyway. :laughing:

Here's another of the original pictures when I first saw her at 4 weeks old.

AND here she is on the far left with the purple ribbon trying to curl up for a nap....

When I visited, I noticed she was neither over dominate or submissive... and I'm told that's good.

She's beautiful. Whatever name you pick will be perfect. We've only had Baxter for 2 days now and he's learned his name. He sleeps through the night and hasn't pooed in the house once:D Peeing on the other hand, we have to get better at noticing when he has to go :laughing: . You're in for a whole lot of work and a whole lot of fun. We expect lots of pics when you get her home.

It's been a busy week or so... what month is it now? :crazy:

Here is one of the latest pictures of Ellie at 9 weeks old. She's doing wonderfully... knows her name and is doing pretty well with the at-home training (doggie kindergarten is around the corner in a few weeks... or more).

Awwwwww! :lovestruck: I love puppies, but from a distance. That way I can admire their cuteness without having to deal with the peeing/pooping/chewing/biting little balls of fluff!
