Does the breeder call them by any names at all or just by color?
When we got our Samoyed, Tonka, he was eight months old -we had a name picked out. We found out his breeder, Cary had named him Tonka and we just loved the name so we kept it. Then we ended up adopting Tucker and we loved that name, too!

I think once you are there and interact with the pups, the right one will make himself known, happened with me and Toby, mutual love at first sight.
Don't worry about not having a name yet, it took me a while to give Toby his name. Once the pup is home and you start knowing his personality, the name will suddenly come to you.
Good luck! So exciting! Sorry to hear though, that you won't be able to get him Sunday

Colors were given marks the day they were born. She just calls them puppies I think.

I agree, i think you will get the puupy that was meant to be for you. As for the name once you get to know you litle champ you will decide on the perfect name.

Tomorrow is the day

So tomorrow morning we are leaving early and going to pick up our puppy. I am overwhelmed with all kind of emotions. Missing my Buddy so much, wish he is here to help me. Sad for a little one who has to leave his mom and brothers and a sister. Panicking, what if he doesn't like his new home. Upset, what if I mess up. His name did not pop up yet, no name that sounds good enough. My daughter said she is moving into second place, from now on it will be all about little one, she said that's how it was with my Buddy. I am so nervous!

Don't worry, you will not mess up. Buddy will be there to guide you. The pup will be very lucky to have you as his mom and he will love his new home. I'll be thinking of you!

Safe travels to Ontario tomorrow V. When you finally decide which little boy is coming home with you and you officially hold him for the first time as YOUR boy I'm sure you'll be flooded with emotions. I know I was when I held Kiwi for the first time...tears of happiness mixed with tears for Maddie but at the same time knowing that yes, it is ok to love again, that is what my Maddie would have wanted for us.

It all seems overwhelming now but once you get him home things will quickly fall into place.

Will be watching for updates!
