|Congratulations on your new addition
My puppy comes home tomorrow and I'm getting to the nervous stage now lol. It's been over ten years since I've had a puppy in the house so I'm trying to get everything ready
We have a crate all good to go... After he sleeps, eats and plays, he'll be going straight outside and if I can't keep an eye on him, he'll be in there... My alarm is good to go every three hours through the night too... It's going to be exhausting but fun!
I'm not a believer that the puppy picks you... People usually say that their puppy came straight up to them and started jumping all over them and playing and that's when they thought that puppy picked them. But nine out of ten times, when you ask the breeder, that same puppy would crawl all over everyone it met, was always first to the food bowl and the bravest around strangers. That puppy didn't pick you, it was like that with everyone. I think most people like to believe that the puppy picked them, but most of the time, that's just not the case... They took home the pushiest puppy and somewhere down the line, if not trained properly, that cute, pushy puppy can cause problems... But that's just my opinion and what do I know
I chose Skip out of a litter of eight because he was just as playful as the other pups, doing all the same things but at a slower pace... He wasn't into everything and chewing everyone's fingers, he was a bit held back but not shy or scared at all, he just wasn't full-on... That was when he was four weeks old though. Now, he's a lot braver, a lot more rambunctious but still friendly, not as jumpy as his siblings and not he'll bent on chewing everything he comes in to contact with... Our energy matched perfectly
As for names,
Conan - it's Celtic. 'Con' means hound and the name means warrior.
Trèan- pronounced 'Tray-han' means strong in Gaelic.
Ajax - means strong in Greek.
Brogan - Irish for sturdy and strong.
Sloane - Irish for strong protector.
Amaro - Native American for strong.
Az - Hebrew for strong.
Bracken - I don't know what it means but my neighbour used to have a Rottie with that name and I've always loved it.
Spartan - I'm guessing you don't need an explanation for that one
Titan - Just an awesome name and I like that it can be shortened to 'Ty'...
I can't think of anymore right now lol...
Oh, I would love to see puppy pictures
