For those not familar with the original 'story' read here.. http://www.bigpawsonly.com/index.php/topic,16544.0.html

Now for the update, lol.

We have been introducing Lola to little dogs since my father had first mentioned wanting a Pug. The first introduction was with the Boston Terrier that I mentioned in my eariler post. Since then we moved on to different breeds, male and female, dominant and submissive. She did amazing. The size difference I think is what's made the huge difference. She was much more playful/gentle with the submissive dogs/pups.

So the trainer told us to select a submissive laid back female and let Lola meet her when she's ready to leave her mommy. This has all progressed ALOT faster than I expected it to. Luckily my father wanted a little dog.. because any dog Lola's size or bigger trigger the beast in her still now. :(

So I called same breeder back and talked with them. The pup my father originally picked turns out to be the most dominant girl in the litter. DOH! BUT they do have a chill laid back female that isn't spoken for. So we went up there and OMG! she is the cutest darn thing. haahhaa Even my hubby who really isn't a little dog person likes her. :D So at the moment we have decided to share custody of her. LMAO

Here's a couple pics. The first one is the entire litter, she's the one chilled out laying on her back. haha Second pic is of me holding her.  :)

I forgot a pic.. She's snuggled up with my hubby in this one.

We have about 4 weeks before she can come home. And let me tell you, I'm excited and nervous all at the same time. :D

Now we need name suggestions. ;) Something short and sweet.. and not too difficult to say. I don't know if I've mentioned it before or not, but my father is deaf, and his speech has been affected so certain words sometimes don't come out sounding right. He can say Bubba and Lola and they sound normal-ish, but certain letter combo's don't come out right. So I need to make a list of names and go over them with him.

Oh my, she is adorable!  Something about those pug faces that always get me.

The best name I've ever heard for a pug was Grape.  Not that you name her that, but I thought it was funny. The daughter named her, and she had those buggy eyes that reminded me of grapes........ ....lol.

How about Bella?  Rose?

I love Bostons and Pugs are cuties also.  Although I've had 3 BT but never had a pug.  She is one cute puppy!  I love the little bug eyes and the smooshed faces.  I also love when they start snorting that makes me laugh everytime.  Anyway, my favorite name was the one for my last BT, Marty.  She was named after Marty Feldman for the bug eyes. 
Kaila - Belgian Malinois
Shiner - Malinois x Ridgeback
Toulouse, Cayenne, Raven - DSH

Abby
Ella
Lily
Mya
Tia
Zoe

Thanks for the suggestions though. ;) Men are just too darn stubborn. hahah
