The kind who show strangers pictures of their dog on their phone and spend hours online reading about everything from the perfect food (SO stressful!), to vitamins, to crate training, to house training and beyond. And today I did Black Friday shopping online for a puppy we don't even have yet.
I can't help myself!!!

Hi everyone-so glad to join your community. I have already gleaned much wisdom from these boards and am thankful you all take the time to share the ups and downs and lessons learned along the journey with your precious goldens.

Our sweet baby girl, named Thelma Lou, will be coming home with us in a little over two weeks. We are working hard to be ready for her and I do think we may be a little crazy to be bringing a puppy home in the middle of the Christmas season but we are sooooo excited to get her here!

I'll post some pictures when I find my phone. She's adorable.
Welcome to the dark side!

Oh, and howdy Thelma-Lou!

Love the name and she is beautiful! I am one of THOSE also. My daughter said she never imagined I would turn into a crazy dog lady. Yep, that's me.

Thanks! We tossed around names for a couple of weeks before settling. We kind of suggested it as a joke (we are big Andy Griffith Show fans and Thelma Lou is Barney Fife's girlfriend) because we wanted a "southern" sounding name, and it grew on all of us.
I chuckle every time I imagine us calling out her name....

Barneysgirl, I'm sitting here laughing about getting a puppy during the Christmas season. In my mind's eye, your Christmas tree is in a playpen (people have done it!) to protect Thelma Lou from dangerous ornaments, tinsel, etc. Enjoy your darling little girl and get ready for the roller coaster

Welcome to the forum! Thelma Lou is adorable. Just think of all the great photo ops that you'll have with a new puppy at Christmas...not that any of us need excuses to take pics of our puppies.

what a sweetheart! I know how you feel, I'm in the same boat. I just started posting here a few weeks ago. I am all about my dog, I love her already so much and we have three weeks till we bring her home! I look forward to your photos! It is nice there are so many of us with pups around the same age!
