This Monday, 3 weeks ahead of schedule, we got our puppy, Lucille. Turns out her mommy didn't want to feed them anymore once the puppies got teeth and stopped feeding them, so we took her a little earlier than planned. What a cutie she is!
We thought she was 6 weeks old, but actually is only a little over 4 weeks, born August 6. Too young, really, to leave her mama, but not much choice in the matter--either that or starve, I guess. She is 2.5 pounds right now! I can't believe she is going to be 70+ pounds. She's actually quite "advanced" for her young age--already responds to her name, goes potty outside for the most part, etc. Hopefully that will continue. Unfortunately, Lenny is a little jealous and has had a few spiteful accidents since her arrival.
