A quick puppy update!  
Just a quick puppy update before I head to work this morning. :) Mark & I went to visit the breeder to see the puppies again last night and we decided to adopt the little boy puppy with the adorable face. :)

We played with him for a while and he has the sweetest demeanor and is SOOO adorable! I'm picking up the rest of the puppy supplies this afternoon, Mark & I are going to finish getting the house "puppy ready" and we're picking him up on Friday after work!! :) We are SOOOO excited!!

We're still contemplating names - both a registered name (his AKC name) and his call name. :) His AKC name has to begin with "Fortune's..." and we have a few ideas already. :)

Thanks to all who have been following our puppy saga from the very beginning! Mark & I feel incredibly blessed!! Big HUGS to all of you!

Being the mommy of a boy dog, I can tell you that the earlier you neuter the better, it really does curb the behaviors that give some boy dogs a bad name. Chewie still did some of them on occasion when he was a puppy, but that's what puppies do to an extent too. Spraying him in the face with a squirt bottle was quite effective in curbing any behaviors that neutering alone didn't solve. :)

Chewbacca has the sweetest demeanor of any dog I have ever owned, and I have heard that boy dogs in general are very loving and sweet... I can tell you firsthand that is true. :) Chewie does have a bit of a stubborn streak sometimes, but that's not a boy dog thing, I think that's more a breed thing (Shih Tzus are known for willfulness-not a good first dog for people, I knew what I was getting into though.)

I'm so happy you are getting a puppy! He is so cute, and I know y'all will be so happy to have a new furry baby to love. I want another furry baby (in addition to Chewie) but my husband's not quite sold on the idea of having two yet (and right now we probably don't have the room anyhow.) What a wonderful way to honor the memory of Sydney! :)

We are definitely going to get him neutered as soon as possible. I think it's in the contract that we sign with the breeder that we have to, anyway and Mark & I feel it's better since our purpose isn't to breed him.

I've heard that male dogs are actually more affectionate and docile than females and this puppy has the most darling demeanor. He can sit in my lap for a long time!

Thanks so much for your comment!! It's been a while since Mark & I have had a fuzzy baby in the house so we have to get back into "puppy mode" :).
