No, I don't have her yet, cause she's only a little over 4 weeks old. She won't come until almost the end of this month. It's a good thing, cause I couldn't take care of her right now, anyway. By the time she comes, I'll be half-way through my recovery, so should be motoring lots better than I am now.
I've named her Taffy. The pups parents owner is calling her that now, so she's comes to it by the time I get to bring her home. She's also coming to me having had her surgery to fix her, so I won't have to worry about that, either.
Yeah, I'm leaning towards Taffy. But I'll make the final decision when she comes to live with us at 8 weeks, after being around her for a bit. She's all over curly brown, with carmel colored paws, and big, deep brown eyes.
She's not going to get to be over 10 pounds, and she will be a lap dog, just what I wanted. My other two dogs are 55 and 65 pound dogs, not real tall, but definetely not lap dogs, although my Wolf-Hybrid tries every chance she gets. She also attempts to "herd" us into bed every night. She exhibits alot of her breed, pack type behaviour. She's a riot, and thinks she's the boss, so we have this Alpha thing going on all the time. I usually win, cause I'll stare her down, and she'll finally give in and lower her eyes. So cool, I love the little smarty pants!
That should help your recovery too. Animals are known to help with that. I grew up always having a dog. We travel now so we didn't get a new one when the last one passed on. She lived nearly 19 years. A wonderful pet. I still miss her and it's been nearly 8 years now.

A friend of mine convinced me to take one of her wee little puppies when it's ready to be weaned from the mommy in 4 weeks. It's adorable, half chiquawa (Lord, did I spell THAT wrong!), and half Yorkshire. It's the softest curliest little critter, and I love her! I'll get her just in time to be almost on the mend from the surgery. Something to really look forward to, a little creature that needs me. It snuggled into my lap and went to sleep after sitting staring at me for about 5 minutes. Funny little thing. Precious.
