Two New Babies!

We're off on a new adventure.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we'd like to present Max and Mya. Mya is just barely 6 weeks old and Max is 7 weeks old. Mya is smooth, petite and cuddly. Max is a round, fluffy bruiser who eats like a piglet and is ready to take on the world.

They are purebred Golden Retrievers with impressive pedigrees. But they have completely stolen our hearts for no reason at all.

I do sortof feel like I have new babies again! Scheduled feedings. Waking up before the sun for crate training. Standing in the cold while they do their business. Baths and playtime. We're so excited. You can visit our goldens blog to follow this adventure.

Here's one of my favorite pictures of them spooning during their nap. Mya has her arm around Max.



We need some ideas for a kennel name before we give Sir Maxwell and Lady Mya their official AKC names. Those of you who are familiar with the process of those ridiculously long names, do you have any ideas for us? We'd like it to be elegant, but reflect something of who we are. Too bad we don't have some "whispering pines" around here or a "claybrook." We've been brainstorming, but haven't settled on anything yet. We thought about "little blue house without any siding on the end of Blinn Street." But somehow it lacks a certain charm. Doesn't quite have the ring we're looking for. Fryville doesn't quite cut it, either. See what I mean? This is a tough decision.

I love the puppies (affectionately called poopies around here) . . .

Did you know Sherilyn and Kenny breed goldens? They've had great luck selling them - it's paying for a wedding now. :>)

Wish I were as brave as you to go for it. I'd really like to, but my clear-thinking (husband) is holding me back to wait for better timing. And a good fence . .. :>)

Oh, and I'll pray for you and you pray for me with violin - we're back in the saddle here too.

Actually, Liz, Max IS a Stetler pup! We just drove down and picked him up yesterday. I just got off the phone with Sherilyn a little bit ago - talking over some details about Max.

I hear you on the timing thing. Since I'm not 3-4 months pregnant right now (as our previous schedule would have dictated), I guess we just had to have some babies this year, one way or another!

Sarah;
Sorry can't help you with Dog names, I named my two fish annanias and saphira and wasn't suprised when they died.

I just read your post about Brown County. It looked great! Matt and I have thought a lot about doing an Anniversary Weekend there sometime. You may have pushed us over the edge, and perhaps we'll take the plunge this September.
Actually, the owner of the cabin we stayed in said that September and May (or June) are the most perfect months in Brown County. The crowds really hit in October, but he says September is the time to go for weather, etc.

Your fish are cracking me up.

I know nothing about kennels and names to go with them. But maybe we will be your very first customers! I didn't realize that was the purpose. How long before the first litter will arrive? I'm assuming a year or so?
Well yes, this is an investment. But it also feels like we've added to our family. It's a very different experience for me. Never really been this close to my dogs before. There's something about the innocence and needs of a puppy that makes it easy to get attached, I guess.

First litter? Don't know. We plan to skip her first heat so that she'll have a stronger bone structure and more maturity to care for her pups. But Max is anxious to get started, let me tell you!

AKC names are really hard to come up with, I agree. Jonathon just named his AKC beagle something like..."Jonathon's Charlie Phillips yadayadayada..." I can't remember it all. But, it was pretty unimaginative (sorry, honey!). I like the Blinn idea. Maybe Fry's Lady Myra of Blinn Road or Sir Maxwell Fry of Blinn....They sound like characters in an Eglish novel!!!
Hmmm...I like your ideas, Steph. We were actually gravitating towards English-sounding names, in fact. I'll run these by David.

Congratulations!

You could go with something with your Blog name too, like Sir Maxwell's Pure Golden something-or-other or Blinn Avenue's Pure Golden Maxwell. Problem is, you may not always be on Blinn Ave, so that might end up a little awkward later!

You know, I think "Little blue house without any siding on the end of Blinn" has a certain ring to it, though. I'm not sure what kind of ring it giving. It is kind of a mouthful.

Good choice to wait on breeding. Large breed females that are bred too soon can really mess up their hips.

We'll be joining you in the Golden experience, so I'll be the one calling you for advice!

Ladies, ladies! Am I the ONLY one who hasn't given my children a houseful of critters? You're all making me look bad now...
Carrie said…
You SHOULD look bad. Your poor, pet-deprived children. Tsk, tsk.

What an adorable picture. Thanks for sharing.

My boys are begging!! for another dog. (So is my husband, to be honest) I'm just not a dog person, no matter how you look at it. But those puppies you've got are pretty cute, for sure. Maybe one of these days - we'll see.

We have a "pure" Golden! "Buckeye" is a beautiful, sweet dog and part of our family!(Stays outside, though!) Love the picture of your two new puppies! We have often thought about getting a "mate" for Buckeye! Enjoyed your cabin pictures too...Looked like a perfect retreat! Good for you! Hope that you are having a wonderful day!
How about Lady Mya of fry manor and Sir King Maxwell of Fry manor? I breed Chihuahuas, and I didn't worry too much about long drawn out names, but if I come up with a cute one I go with it. I'm thinking about down sizing to 1 - 2 dogs though. Too much work and too many kids. I feel like I live in a zoo some days! LOL

Would I need the VMFA to deaccession every thing it's?

It appears, however, that such exhibits should signify an excellent chance to do just that.
While doing that, carry on talking dirty to her in another ear.
