And it didn't happen.

Andy announced that since I got to pick the last pet, it was his turn. So...

We haven't picked her name yet, so suggestions are welcome. So far, so good with the cats, although the German Shepard isn't quite sure yet. (And we had a little barking a minute ago.) She's also smaller than both cats, which probably helps. We're guessing she's some sort of chow/lab/border collie? mix. In any case, she's tired from playing with all the neighborhood kids, and is about to zonk out. The people who found her abandoned in the park with her brother guess she's about 3 months old. Tomorrow: the vet.

What are we getting into? :rolleyes:

Here she is:

And another pic. She's the roly-polyiest little puppy I've ever seen. :)

I'm sure Andy will log on soon and fill in the rest of the details.

She is the most adorable puppy I have seen in a long time! I am currently on the computer in the garage, and she is passed out on a couple of pillows that I put on the floor for her. I am going to be taking the day off tomorrow since I will probably be up every couple of hours tonight. I also want to spend some time with her so we can bond. I think she will make a great addition to the family. We now have an equal number of males and females in the house! Although only the wife and I will be capable of breeding.;)

The annoying neighbor's dog is Bear, so probably not.

We're down to Sasha, Sierra, Porsche and Integra for names.

I think my personal favorite is Sasha. She has really opened up in the last few minutes. It is like she caught a second wind. She has follwed me around everywhere I go and she has made sure to lick every inch of my face. I think she knows that she has found a home. She will sleep by the bed with me tonight. I will probably be up a few times to let her out, but I don't care. She is my new baby!

We have decided to name her Sasha. Her eyes are blue, but the camera really brought it out in that first picture. She is already becoming my buddy. She follows me around everywhere I go.

Jay, I was wondering the same thing about her eyes. Instead of the traditional "red eyes" from the flash she has blue.

Call her Blue or Cutie (because she is that...)

....you know there are books in the library to help you name your dog... ;)
(if you really wanna get anal)

You sure are quick, Andy!

Sasha's a great name for her.

You certainly did do the right thing to save her. Even if she weren't cute...

"That was my Irish Setter's name when I was in college"

WOW... always nice to see a fellow red devil owner.

I love my Irish Setter :)
Definitely my favorite breed.

Beautiful pup, Andrew :D

We just got home from the vet and she has a clean bill of health. She is younger than we thought (6-8 weeks old). She is on some antibiotics for a skin rash, but everything else is good. We just spent about $70 on her at Petsmart. At her current weight of 7.2 pounds that works out to about $10 per pound! We are relieved to see the clean bill of health! We have had a great time with her today. She is too small to go down steps, so she tends to end up going ***** over end.
