My furbaby

As you are aware, we have been trying to get another dog for a few months now.  The last litter was born a couple of weeks ago and all we needed was 2 girls to be born, and we would have our puppy.  One girl was born and we were pretty bummed.  We would have to wait another month to see if we would get a dog.

Or so we thought...

Early last week, the breeder called and offered us the last puppy from that litter.  A little boy.  We originally had wanted another girl for a couple of reasons.  First, we were afraid the dog would pee everywhere.  Second, we didn't want the new dog to try and get romantic with Taylor, if you catch my drift.  She's not into that.  And we are certainly not wanting to see that.

After some discussion with the breeder about our concerns and our hopes for this dog (that he will be bonded to me since Taylor could honestly care less about me when Phil is around), we decided to take the puppy.  The breeder says girl puppies usually bond to men better than woman so a girl dog might not be the best fit for us.  In the words of the breeder's husband, "They don't call them bitches for nothing!"

So here he is:

We had a name all picked out if it was a girl: Penny (from the William Butler Yeats peom "Brown Penny").  But now we had to figure out what to name a boy dog.  My brother, Nick, suggested Lincoln since Lincoln is on the penny (such a funny guy).

{He's got a name and a tag waiting for him.  Isn't that the cutest collar?}

And the breeder thought it was a cute name and accepted it.  We should have named him "Tim Riggins".

The CUTEST video can be found HERE.  Lincoln is the one in front that falls over.  I've watched it approximately 47 times.  We only check this hourly to see if she has added new pictures.

We are so excited and can't wait to bring him home in 34 days!  Not that we are counting or anything.

Taylor's excited too.  She just doesn't know it yet.
