Puppy Madness!

Happiness is a warm puppy. ~Charles M. Schulz


I went and saw my baby today! (Or as Jen calls her - "the nameless puppy" - ha!) Look at this sweet little face!





Do you think she already knows how spoiled she's going to be?




Here's she is laying against her sister. I just want to rub that puppy belly!





Yes, I have a bad case of puppy love! I have to enjoy her 4 pounds of sweetness right now - cuz next year she's going to be a 70-90 pound girl! Can you picture it???



P.S. I thought of a name for my baby girl. I'm going to make you guess. And then I'll give away a prize to the 1st person with the correct answer! Clues and giveaway details will be posted Wednesday morning.

I'm guessing Bernarda, the first Swiss female saint. Bernie for short. (That might also help clear up the fact that she is NOT Burmese!)

As to a spoiled puppy, you stated the very reason you won't spoil here. You must remember that every time you look into those sweet puppy eyes, an 80-pound dog is awaiting. It's a lot easier to make corrections early than when they are so large. And consistency from the get-go is essential.

Oh...I am SO happy for you.

Since she will be the hostess pupette of the Loon's Nest, my guess is Loona.

And I have an award for you.

You can spoil a puppy and still have discipline. You can't spoil with love...impossible.

I have had German Shepherd Dogs for nearly 30 years. You spoil with the love and discipline with the learning. When you bring this darling home, find some good puppy obedience classes. It will create an unimaginable bond between you and your little gal.

Deb said...

Oh she is absolutely adorable Shelley! I am thinking you will call her either Heidi ...Shelby ... or Luna (Princess of Loon Cottage) :-)

Lady of the Mote said...

what a beautiful puppy!

The Retired One said...

I can just smell her skunky sweet puppy breath. I would do nothing all day but hold her and hug her if I got her home!
I think everyone is right about the name being related to your loons...Luna is a cute name for her!!! But I will wait for the clues first to decide!

April said...

Oh my, what a face! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! I don't know who's going to be more spoiled...you or her! LOL!

Ginger said...

Hi Shelley:
Her face has the prettiest markings. It will be hard not to spoil her.

You have to start a baby book and put all these comments in it for her. She is so loved. Sharon
