gg-girl's Journal, 25 January 2013

Friday,

Well, first off about last night...think PUPPIES!!! So cute & tiny & little & wiggly & one of them is mine...all mine! AKC yellow lab. Put a little pink collar on her to tell her from the rest. I really don't know what I was thinking, but I did NOT take a picture. I have been talking about getting another dog for the last year, just a bit here & there, kind of getting the rest of the family in the right frame of mind, but progressively more, as the time of year (IMO) for bringing home a pup is March/April/May. So, my SO/DH kind of guy has been searching, he is an awesome surfer dude...LOL, trying to find one close by...not from a puppy mill...and affordable. We have seen pups go for $1,000's, which is totally out of range.

Anyhooooo, mama is a sweeetie yellow lab, small & petite, only 62 pounds & daddy is a chocolate & he is pretty small too, like 65 pounds. There are 11 puppies (oh, if they were mine, I wouldn't get ANY work done at all), 6 yellow & 5 black, I think.

So for the important stuff...I neeed NAME suggestions!


Oh yeah...food & excercise for yesterday, OK, on target & all that...sleep not so much, I didn't get to sleep till after 10.

This morning excercise a VERY sluggish 30 min on the eliptical, food is all planned & logged & all that.


Today I am thankful for pets & the smile they bring & the love they always have & the way they are always happy to see us. I am totally looking forward to adding to our little pack!

baby critters are always so darned cute! wish you'd of taken a photo too. My friend's yellow labs were named Buddy and Hooker. Probably not good suggestions for your female. Isn't the most popular dog name "Molly"?

How wonderful!!!! When does she get to come home with you? Did GG-Girl get to go pick out her new housemate? Or will it be a surprise? We want pictures!!!!!! I'll give some thought to a name. :)

You could name her Iam, so every time you called for her, you would be yelling, "Here I am!" OK, that was bad. But this is coming from someone who name his labs Patrick and Big Mack. Since she's a yellow lab, how about "Buttercup"?

I am so jealous - I've wanted another dog for a long time but those vet bills kill! As for name suggestions, I find that it is best to get the puppy home and watch her for a few days and the most appropriate name will suddenly become very apparent. Have fun!

Awwwww I love puppies..I agree with Buffy..the name for her will just come to you...I always wait til one of the calves had been here for awile..I named one Elvis as he had the hair going on his head..He was a cutie...Can't wait to see a pic...Happy for you..Also she will keep doggie girl younger...:O)

Jess, I am not surprised, I know like 5 dogs named Molly, & that's without really thinking too hard.

Sandy...no GG-Girl did NOT get to pick, I didn't even know which one to pick, they don't even have their eyes open yet. But, the mama is so sweet. I sat in the box with them & she kind of nudged one over to me, so that's the one I picked. & that one was kind of yipping/barking, not the mewing or yelping sound. So I asked if they would call me when they are up & about more, he said for sure he would & said that I could change my mind to any other un-spoken for pup if I wanted to.

DairyKing, I was kind of thinking along those lines, the name of Maizy/Maizie had surfaced in my thoughts.

Bren, I know how it goes, sometimes their personality or certain way they look brings a name to mind. Which is probably what I will do, I just wanted some good ideas in my head.

So pleased for you :) looking at my chocolate boy snoozing on the sofa as I write....30kg of pure love and joy (we'll forget the heart ache) We called him Ozzy, as on the drive home with him the radio was on and every few minutes there was a story about Ozzy Osbourne having had a quad bike crash...Ozzy just seemed to fit....though it seems we call him all sorts of things, like Daddy's Chocolate Hero, The Organic Waste Disposal Unit, Mummy's Darling Man, R2D2 (he does the shuffle infront of you when he wants soething)...so any name will just make you light up when you say it or think it, as it will be the name of your little girl, who floods you with joy and happiness.....can't wait for the pics!

Can't wait to hear what you choose. The dog sounds amazing, and Maizi sounds adorable. Lucky girl (both of you).
