helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

We’re feeling like bad puppy parents because we still haven’t decided on a name for our new family member. I tend to take the job of picking a name verrrrrrry seriously. I want it to be something that will fit his personality and something that will not sound ridiculous when he’s a full grown dog. We’re turning into Tom & Giselle… taking so long to pick a name! It took us well over a week to name Steve Perry… and we want to pick out an equally AWESOME name for our pup! And I want E and I to both like it, of course. It’s so hard!! I want it to be the perfect name for the precious little guy.

Speaking of precious, Evin came to meet the little guy this weekend and snapped a few photos of him. I’m in love with his little face.

So far he has been a very good boy. We are working hard on the potty training which is really a patience testser. But he is doing pretty well at it as long as we pay attention to him to make sure he doesn’t have the opportunity to have an accident. I’m thinking we will be searching Craigslist for some used baby gates so he can play in the kitchen so I get some work done during the day.

Other than that, we are just getting all prepared for Christmas over here!! Can you believe it’s only 4 days away!!! I promise this blog won’t be completely overtaken with puppy posts… I’ll get back to the wedding stuff soon. :)

    So cute! Good luck with potty training. For us, just when we thought he would never get it, he did!

    The first name to pop into my head when I saw him was Moses. No idea why, but there you have it. :-)

    We use baby gates still just to keep the big pup from wandering off alone. And… search Etsy for TINKLEBELLS. They are the best invention ever. Trained our pup Emma in less than 3 weeks using them. Delilah had no tinklebells and she’s a lost cause.

    These pictures are priceless! What a little ham!

    I love the names Teddy and Rex for pups. Our bulldog is Maverick, after the old TV show since my hubs was named for a character on that show as well!

    I can’t wait to see what name you choose!!
