They grow up so quickly

 

My new bundle of joy was born just one week ago today, but is apparently, growing quite a bit already.  I don’t know which one of these little guys I will choose as my own, but one of them is coming home with me at the end of August.  I have second pick of the males.  There are five of them:

 

3 days old

3 days old #2

And here are the little guys on their one week birthday:

 

1 week birthday!

1 week birthday!

As you can see, their little ears are no longer a bright pink, their little noses are already turning black, and they are getting quite plump.  I think they must have a really good momma.  I originally thought I’d like one of the cream colored pups, as I would have a terrible time keeping a white dog clean, but now I’m not so sure.  I think it will take a bit until I can see their personalities developing in their pictures before I’m able to pick one out as my own.  

So far, I’m thinking either Captain Jack Sparrow as a name, or Atticus.  Again, this will depend on personality.  Captain Jack, as we know, is a bit quirky and fun.  Atticus (from To Kill A Mockingbird) was a kind, gentle, but righteous man.  What better than to name your dog after characters played by the incomparable Johnny Depp or Gregory Peck?  We’ll shall see — oh yes, we shall see.
