View Full Version : Best Christmas Present Ever

Star would like to introduce The Baby, our as-yet-unnamed Bleinhem girl. Star is 13 months old today, and our little one is almost 6 months old. Both are from Bruce and Kris. We brought the little one home on December 30.

This is Star adopting her best big sister pose:


Here they are, ready to play.


And here's our new addition, looking a little confused. "There is only one other dog here; where are you hiding all the others??"


For anyone who's wondering, the B&T's are long gone from Bruce and Kris' place. Our new girl was still with them as a possible show dog. She developed some freckles, which we think of as her lucky freckles, because they meant she could come live with us.

Any name suggestions would be appreciated! We are having a raging debate here. Right now, Ruby is in the lead, my daughter is dead set on Amber, and I also like names like Lily, Molly, Bella, etc. I've also suggested Ember as an alternative to Amber (we know an Amber quite well, so I'm not too sure about that name).

She's a wonderful playmate for Star, and a treat to have with us. Welcome, little one!

oh she's lovely, congratulations!!

Shame for Bruce and Kris but wonderful news for you :)

Oh fantastic! Lucky you; they are both such pretty dogs. :) Thanks for the updates on the B&Ts too. The one small reservation I'd have with Ember or Amber is they might sound quite close to Star when you are calling the dogs and you might always have two responding to either name. But they might be distinct enough too. I have a Lily and a Lucy which are close in sound, but Lucy can't hear her name as she's deaf, so it doesn't really matter. :lol:

You are lucky to have pups from Bruce and Kris. They are both beautiful. You must be having lots of fun with the 2 of them!

Hey Barb, glad to see she is fitting right in. I'm looking forward to hearing what she is named. We are missing her now, but it helps knowing she is in a wonderful home.

Can't blame you for wanting a good call name. Her official name is MysticKnight Miss Kitty. Somehow calling "here Kitty, Kitty" just never sounded right :lol:

Barb B, they are beautiful! Congrats!!

How did you post the pictures? Everytime I try, my message ends up with the http://------- tag like your first post but no pictures appear. Thanks!

Hi - my first try didn't work because I had [img] [img] around the pictures, instead of [img] /img]. Definitely need the slash /. And I don't think there's supposed to be any spaces between those "bookends" and the URL you paste in.

Thanks, everyone, they are so fun together. We just came in from a romp in the deep snow of our backyard. An abbreviated jaunt, since it's only 5 degrees at the moment! But they love to play chase. The little one will be a wonderful weight control tool for Star!

I'm having a bit of a problem making this show up right. Let's try this:

Oh wow what fun. They are both adorable. And yes, re similar sounding names... I've been down that path.

We have Sam who I always used to call Sammy, and then we adopted Sonny and it was very confusing there for a while. To get around this dilema I reverted to calling Sam just that, and Sonny got all sorts of endearments tagged on to the end of his name, like Sonny-Boo, Sonny-Bunny or some other embarrasing thing. Thankfully we have all settled into Sam & Sonny. :)

Congrats! Her freckles are so cute.

They are both really beautiful. How blessed are you to have two of Bruce's dogs. :D

Oh my gosh, they are both beautiful. I love Molly, of course, but your little baby girl looks like a Lily to me. I love that name also.

If I ever got another cav, I've already decided she'll be a Blenheim named Charlotte. I just love that name. I have no plans for the immediate future, but I'll be prepared with the name when the time comes. ;)

I vote for Ember. How cute!

Well, the puppy's name is Ruby now. I liked Lily an awful lot, and thought that suited her, but the rest of the family thought it was way too girly. And with her freckles and spunky nature, I must admit that she probably shouldn't have too lady-like of a name!

As you can see below, she has already heard about sisters Sydney and Ruby from Virginia, and is anxious to meet up with them on the Human Talk chat site (she is cleverly pretending to sit on a lap while doing her surfing). Sydney and Ruby, we are waiting to hear about more adventures, now with your brother!

Oh,- Barb, Ruby is just precious. What a darling picture. Congratulations on such a wonderful new addition. Judy and Dixie
