The big day is here!

Tomorrow is the day that we are going to get our new puppy. We have to drive three hours north to get him which kind of sucks but it's not like I can just send The Husband, this is something the whole family (at least the humans in the family) have to be there for. I hope our older dogs aren't mad when we get home, they're generally nice to other dogs but then again, we don't bring other dogs into our home to stay. 

I think we'll have about six male pups to choose from. I'm actually glad it's not more because I cannot imagine how difficult it's going to be to choose, when we saw them last time they were all little balls of cuteness. I think we'll be surprised how much bigger they are after three (or is it four?) weeks. I can't wait to see them. 

I wonder, is it difficult for the Mommas to give up their babies or am I just anthropomorphising the dogs? Either way, it kind of makes me sad. I hope we don't have to see the Moms...that might make it least on me.  

I think we've decided on the name Zigfried (Ziggy for short) we don't have a middle name yet and we sill decide on that after we choose our pup. We might want to use the mom or dad's name somehow when naming our new guy. We're not sure yet. The Son mentioned today that he wanted to name the dog Thomas which I actually like a lot even though it's not German (The dog is a German Shorthair Pointer for those of you who haven't been reading this blog regularly) However, The Son has also mentioned that we should name the dog Popcorn, Blueberry or Ball so I don't know if he's the best one to ask. 

One more picture of the day we went up to see the pups. We really liked this little guy, who knows if he'll be the one we end up with though, we couldn't actually choose on that day. All the dogs were beautiful though so I know we won't be disappointed. I'll keep you all updated and post pictures of our new guy as soon as I can.
