2/25 Dogs galore

These are pictures of my sister Jan's new puppy, a miniature piebald (?) dachsund. The brown miniature is her other dachsund, Alfie. They are both so cute. Wish I could have a picture of them with Rob and Beata's blue-dappled mini-dachsund, Chilli. They are all adorable. BUT... as cute as they are, they aren't as cute as a dog I met today. Yep, I got to pick out Quincy, my puppy. She's only 10 days old, so it will be a while before I bring her home.

I'll be able to post pictures of her tomorrow. Beata, Rob, and I went out to Janae's parents' farm where we saw the 14 puppies. Haley, the mom, and Hunter, the dad, are both gorgeous yellow labs. Hunter is one of the largest labs I've seen, about 120 pounds. I picked Quincy because she's the runt (although very healthy), and has an almost white coat. Then we stopped by Tom's house and saw his lab, Holly. Holly was the runt of the last litter and is now about a year old. She's beautiful and about 70 pounds or so. That will be a great size for my dog. Here's hoping... :)

Before we went to see the pups, I got to go to Tom and Kathryn's for a fantastic meal. R and B were getting their pictures taken, and couldn't join us. As always, Kathryn made a very tasty meal and I did my best to let her know how much I loved it by eating two helpings.

Okay--tomorrow, pictures of Quincy.

He IS cute as can be. It almost makes me want to get a puppy. ALMOST!!!
We'll have to visit him soon while he's still so tiny.
Can't wait to see the pics of Quincy

I replied once to Cindy's post. Maybe it will show up soon.

Anyway, Kelly, it's hard to not have an emotional reaction to puppies. Almost all breeds are adorable as pups, with some cuter than others. I agree that Rocky is right up there with the best of them.
