Pitter Patter of little paws

Yesterday, we drove about 2 hours to visit Gimli's breeder. She had breed a different dog than the one that had problems last year and that doggie had a litter of pups.  Out of 5 pups, there are 3 boys and 2 girls.  We'll be getting one of the girls, though we aren't sure which one yet. Gimli's breeder wants to wait a couple weeks to see how they develop before she decides the one she's going to keep.

Both girls are docile and snugglers, which is what Mike and I wanted. They are a stark contrast to the three boys who are just like Gimli was at that age - bouncy, rambunctious and nibbling on everything lol.  At one point, the 3 boys were nibbling on my laces, just like Gimli did.

The one in the image above is the quieter one of the girls.  I have a sneaky suspicion that's the one we'll get - the other girl has some spunk but not as much as the boys. Gimli's breeder hopes that spunk will appear in the show ring.  The quieter one, cuddled in my lap for nearly an hour. She curled up and I played with her head and gave her tummy scratches.  She nibbled on my ring then decided to try my finger, which was a little softer lol.

She won't be ready for her new home til the middle of June. We've decided to name her Merida after the heroine in Disney's Brave.

Stay tuned for the puppy news!
