Well another good news/bad news post. Well it’s not BAD – just hmmmmm….disappointing. Well not disappointing…just unexpected. So here we go….
It’s official. I am an uncle!!! And Einstein is a Dad!! His mail order girlfriend gave birth on Saturday night. My human hardly slept all night -waiting for the news. Merida is his girlfriend’s name – and she lives clear across the country in British Columbia. That’s the good news. But here’s the glitch…Remember the ultrasound said at least three puppies? Well here’s the disappointment- there is just one puppy – a little girl.
We were hoping for lots of Frodettes but there is just one. She has big paw prints to fill.
I shouldn’t say we are disappointed- because really, any life is a miracle. And knowing how challenging breeding can be – especially at a distance, to have even one puppy is a gift!
If she takes after her father, she is going to be one chatty girl. We’ve never had a girl in this house – except my human. Just us rough and tumble boys.
I don’t really get a say in picking her name – but it doesn’t stop me from making suggestions….How about Indy – for individual? Solo works – but I think that sounds more like a boy’s name. There’s Treasure. Because she is one. Or Gem – which could be Gemma if you like two syllables. Addie – short for adventurous since she is the only puppy. Adira is a Hebrew name meaning strong. Isa is a German name meaning strong-willed. Mind you that might not be such a smart choice. We know that PONs can be strong-willed to begin with. Why add fuel to the fire?
Ada is a Polish name meaning nobility. Tola is a Polish name meaning priceless. And then we have Ula which means sea jewel. Given that half her roots came from Nova Scotia – Canada’s Ocean Playground, that could work….
Anyway, we just hope she continues to thrive and leads a happy PONtastic life! We are all excited to follow her progress as she grows.
Have a good one. Peace and paws up.
