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:
And here are the little guys on their one 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.
