    Re: that litter of adorable puppies,
    it would take a pretty trained and observant eye to tell one from another at this stage, wouldn't it??
    And doesn't that 3rd photo look like that baby is smiling??
    and the new mom looks like SHE is smiling, too!!

    Thanks for the links :) I'll have to take a trawl through them see if there are any that we think fit.

    It does look like the pup is smiling. To me it looks like the mum is happy that it is all over. :p Currently they all look like squished puppies to me, but I bet the breeder can tell them apart as she's been breeding them for over 16 years. We can't wait, it'll be a few weeks before their personalities show through fully and by then we should be able to tell one from another (I hope).

    Oh my!!! Such cute babies!!!
    Hope there's one for you.
    I know how it feels to wait for a pup and then be told there is none for you. In our case it was a small litter with only three mails and one female. And since we wanted a female... We were second on the list, unfortunately.

    Salixfire, do you have to come up with a Ch purebred registered name,
    as well as a 'pet' name?
    Do you have to choose TWO names?

    Quite a few breeds like Pyrenean Mountain Dog, Lundehunds, Icelandic Sheepdog, Anatolians, Estrela Mountain Dog all are known for them. These aren't the same as the normal dew claws that are just bits of flesh with claws that have a tendency of tearing, they're actually two little thumbs. :)

    SQUEAL!!!!! CUTENESS OVERLOAD!!!

    //"i hope i am not posting too many pics"//
    IMPOSSIBLE!! MORE! MORE!!

    Glad to see you back, i'm hoping the continued photographing of the pups indicates you did 'make the cut' for potential ownership of one of these too too cute babies??

    AWW, they're sooo cute, I just love puppies:love: Here's some names. Also you can google dog names, or puppy names and find a bunch of names. I think picking out the perfect name for a dog is a lot of fun. Please keep posting pictures of the adorable little pups.

    Well when will you know if you can have one of the little darlins? Is it a waiting list or criteria based evaluation?

    Ooooh!!!! I really do hope you get one!!!!:D Do you have your sights set on one in particular????
  17. tigerlily46514 Honored Member

    <---wonders if the delay means Salix did not get a pup this time:oops:
    , OR,
    if it means Salix is now totally 100% busy with new baby dog:D and is also spending every waking moment doting on and admiring the ball of cuteness in her home.

    Hehe, no we haven't got the dog yet unfortunately. We were away for a while getting all our travel commitments out of the way before getting the pup. There is a slight issue getting this this pup however. We were fourth on the list to get a pup and all of them chose a male pup. So we do have a male pup left but it means we get last pick which the breeder is iffy about doing as we want to train it as a service dog. However, her friend just confirmed that her bitch is pregnant and due before we have to say definitely if we're taking the first dog. Our breeder has asked her friend if she minds us having first pick of the boys when they arrive. So hopefully if this pup doesn't work out the next ones will. Also our crate arrived on Thursday so we're definitely getting there. I'm glad you think I would be a good owner Tigerlily, I always worry I won't be good enough, or that I'll forget something important. :)

    I think you will be a GREAT owner. :)
