View Full Version : Hello...new pup arrives tomorrow!

13th June 2008, 10:01 PM
Hi, My name is Heather and my mother is getting a new blenheim, 8 week old little girl tomorrow. We're very excited but very new to CKC. We've had English Springer Spaniels all our lives and now mom feels the need to down size, so to speak. However, our last two springers were older rescue dogs so she hasn't had a puppy in 30 years! I may be asking some questions. :)

We haven't named the puppy yet but are leaning towards Binne, which in Gaelic means, sweet, melodius, and fairylike.

I will post some photos tomorrow.

(Incidentally, I run an orchid growing forum such as this one called Slippertalk!)

Looking forward to learning lots and getting to know all of you and your pups!

HI Heather, welcome. Are you in US? It's unusual to find a breeder who places them that young in the US but in the UK much more common. I wish I knew about your board before I "killed" my orchid. I will PM you to see if you think it's really dead if that is ok.

Welcome. :) An orchid forum sounds fun!

Hello Heather. I had a quick look at your forum :thmbsup: I have about 4 orchid plants, none of which have flowered for a few years so this will be really useful to me.

icon_welcomeHi Heather and welcome from us too, looking forward to hearing all about your mam's new puppy :lotsaluv:

Ha, thanks for the nice welcome - the orchid comments made me smile - sure any questions, feel free to ask here or there. I'm Heather over there.

I am in Massachusetts, USA. There are not a lot of breeders around us but this one seems to know what she's doing, however we did read about the preference of not placing this early - after we'd set the date.
Hopefully all will be well...off to clean the crate and get ready!

Pronounced Binney in our house anyway....she's a bundle of energy! Galloped around the yard with me a bit ago. So far, so good!

Absolutely precious!!! :luv:

Welcome! She is just precious!

The actual pronunciation of that word (Binne) would be BEAN-nyah (accent on the first syllable). :)

Thanks Karlin,

There's a bit of a story behind the name. We have another Binne in our past and she is sort of named in his honor (but he was pronounced Binney, so that's her "nickname" so to speak.)

However, thanks very much for the correct pronunciation! I will pass it on to mom.
