Well, I decided a new thread was necessary now as we've solved the mystery of our new pup's name.... Now all we need to do is pin (not literally) the name on one of the boy pups in the litter. We have two favourites and we'll make the final decision this weekend.

Yes, we're super excited because we're going see them again this weekend to make our final choice. So we'll take some pictures and post them later on Sunday evening and introduce you to Hobbes.

Very Happy

Robert

Oh! You must be so excited! Really looking forward to photos of the lucky little chap, now that we know his name we'd love to know what he looks like!

How long will you have to wait after this weekend until Hobbes comes home?

As we're away for two weeks, Hobbes won't be joining the family until the beginning of October.

I was tempted to give up the holiday. Then my finance director pointed out that we'd miss a wedding and loose a bucketful of money. And so, having discussed it with the breeder she is happy to keep him a little longer for us.... Lovely lady Very Happy

So only another twenty-one days, twelve hours and eighteen minutes to go....... Not that I'm counting Rolling Eyes

Robert

Here's a couple more. As you're all probably aware seven week old puppies have no concept of posing for pictures so these are all cropped to provide close ups... Therefore their not the sharpest of pics.

Anyway, I shall take more next time I visit, just before we go on holiday. And then I'll take more when we collect and bring him home.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments. He is indeed adorable and we "clicked" immediately when we first saw him and, although it was a couple of weeks then till we saw him again this weekend, he remembered us immediately and was the first one to bounce over and say hello when we arrived.

We're really excite. So much so that I can't ever remember a time when I wished a holiday was over even before I've gone one it.... crazy Confused Confused

Have been spending a fortune on puppy essentials in preparation for his arrival. We'll be going to see Hobbes again before we go off on holiday so I'll take a few more pics and post them too.

Robert
