Adding to Our Family

Hunt and I are proud to announce that we are adding a new member to our family!

She is arriving this Saturday, is 9 weeks old and weighs only 3.5 lbs.  And she is of the furry persuasion, so no real babies around here yet!

She is a mix between a Bichon and a Shih Tzu.  The mix is often called a Teddy Bear or a Zuchon.  I just call her cute.

Speaking of calling her...we need to figure out her name!

The breeder has named her Chloe, but we are considering a different name for her.

I would love to have your input on what little miss cuteness should be called:.  Here are a few options which I posted in a poll.  And, of course, other suggestions are welcome!
  • Mimsie
  • Dixie
  • Minnie
  • Jilly
  • Cookie
  • Peachy (or Peaches)
  • Chloe
In the meantime I am devouring Ceasar Milan's book: How to Raise the Perfect Dog: Through Puppyhood and Beyond.

We can't wait...or maybe that's just me...Hunt is still getting used to the idea that he agreed to...

I don't see the poll, but I want to be the first to vote... DIXIE! Love it :) She is so adorable!

I was very sad to read about Molly... I loved snuggling with her on your sofa in ATL. Those were good, sweet days.

The poll wouldn't let me submit my vote, so I must say that in honor of your southern roots, I definitely think you should name her Dixie!!!!

Congratulations!!! I read that book cover to cover and it helped me greatly with Henry, that and always have treats in your pocket to reward anything she does right! I vote for Dixie! Enjoy your new baby!
