Mom and Dad

These are Happy's parents Arbor (fawn female) and Duncan (black male)

We are very enthusiastic about meeting Happy next weekend. She's being spayed this Friday so she'll be healed and done with that when/if we get her. We like the idea of getting a black pug because, being the vampires we are, we wear a lot of black (and Nick will be wearing suits a lot soon) and both of our cars are black. We hear pugs shed a lot so it's for the best that we have a black dog. We'd be happy with either color squishy faced dog though. We also decided that we liked the idea of getting a 6 month old puppy instead of an 8 week old puppy because we don't want to have to leave a baby pup home alone for too long. I'll be able to come home for lunch so she will only be home for 3.5 hours at a time. But that's still a bit too long for a tiny one. So when we found "Happy" at 7 months old she seemed perfect. Plus, she's already crate trained and mostly housebroken! ... any suggestions for a new name?

Wow. Okay, you asked, so here is a short list of awesome names for a black, female pug:

-- Olga
-- Eunice
-- Beatriz
-- Claire
-- Natasha
-- Portia
-- Joy
-- Adele
-- Cordelia

There are plenty more where those came from. Believe me.

I think we've decided on something but I won't reveal it until she's home with us. :)
