Please welcome....no name girl pup!

We brought our puppy home last night, and it was a girl instead of a boy! We totally set out to get a boy puppy this time, but this little girl just stole our heart (and met our temperament requirements )

The problem is, we didn't think of any girl names so she's stuck being called pup pup for a few days while we research.

It was kind of bittersweet to see her say goodbye to her mom - she was still trying to nurse! (her mom is the darker golden in the 9th and 10th pictures)

She has been SO GOOD (knock on wood 100 times) so far - slept during the 2 hr drive home (got a little sick toward the end), charmed our neighbors, slept through the night (8:30-5:30), minimal fussing before falling asleep, no accidents so far - although that's mostly because we're bringing her outside every 15 minutes lol. We just did some eye contact training during breakfast and she caught on really fast.

Chaya was kind of jealous at first, but now is coming around a bit because having her around means she gets treats too . Everyone is having a rest/crate time now that breakfast and play is over. She's fussing a bit but I'm going to be strong and ignore her

She's a little nippy, but nothing like what I'd expect so I'm grateful. I'm using those opportunities to teach "drop it", and basically at this point I'm just stuffing cookies in her mouth lol.

Later we're going to the vet for her fecal exam and bordetella shot to prepare for puppy class in a few weeks. I'm falling in love!

Oh what gorgeous photos!!! I just love them You all must be having so much fun! There are tons of beautiful girl names, I'm sure you will find the perfect one for her. Please keep posting photos of her, it's so nice for those of us who don't have a puppy in the house to see all those sweet baby poses. Congratulations!!!

p.s. I would also love if it you would keep posting about how your Chaya is adjusting and how you are handling the logistics of supervising them, giving them separate attention and training time etc. (I'm taking notes

For sure! It's actually one of the most stressful parts for us, it's our first time having 2 dogs.

That's a great name! We're also thinking along the lines of of something girly, since this one is very delicate and sweet (unlike Chaya, who's a rhino in golden fur ).
