My newest baby!

Our new puppy came for a visit last night!  She is right at 7 weeks now so she should be able to come home to stay in about a week or two.

She has already gotten bigger!  Of course "big" is relative when you are talking about a dog that will only weigh between 10 and 12 pounds!  She is full of energy and loved playing with Scout and Truman.  Phog (our golden) wasn't too interested yet but he did stand guard over her for several minutes.

We have decided to name her Lola.  If I would have had another daughter I would have named her I think it fits!  And "whatever Lola wants, Lola gets!"

This is her sister...she is a bit smaller and a little more tentative than Lola.  Her current owners call her Wine because she has a little whimper when she gets lonely.  Our dog was called Cheese...get it?  Wine and Cheese?  Yea, I like Lola better too!

I can't wait for her to come home permanently!  And yes...I do plan to buy her clothes and carry her around with me.  It is my right as a small dog owner and a mommy at heart.  I currently have no plans for a dog purse but don't hold me to that.

    What a cute puppy! I'll bet her fur is so silky soft to touch...

  2. *ROTFL* Becca - you crack me up! Coming from a rescue owner that is MUCH more of a big dog person, the whole clothes and purse thing is too funny. My smallest puggle is a touch overweight at 20 lbs - Bella Wiggles. The girls treat her like a princess, and I will admit I've broken down and bought her a couple outfits. She always has a beautiful crown name tag and my girls always go straight for the clothes rack at Petco.
    Congratulations on your newest baby! Lola is pretty precious. (*psst* Small dog syndrome sucks, so might want to prevent that. *hehe*)
