Congratulations! How is Langniappe doing? Why doesn't she come around any more? We used to email each other way back when. In fact, it may even have been before I got Maggie, so that would be over 4 years ago. But we kind of lost touch. Next time you talk, tell her I said hi.
All -- Thanks for the kind words. Given the past, I've gotten a little gun shy about these announcements.
pope -- The name is still being discussed. We will probably go with the name the breeder gave him, but I guess I'm just being difficult.
rottluvr -- After we got the last pup, someone suggested that I change my screen name, and now I'm glad I didn't. I'll probably keep this screen name forever. It will be a lasting reminder to how long and hard this process has been.
Oh dear...been there and done that. What I had to do was roll some towels up and stuff them tightly all around the couch so my brats couldn't get under there. They loved to pull the stuffing out! After a while, they realized they couldn't get under there and left it alone.
