Dad says my name is Lightning since I am Thunder's creation:) Mom likes Flash better, but it is Dad's choice. There have been lots of names tossed around - Skyler, Shiloh, Ryan, Berrin, Bannon, and Fergus (the last three courtesy of Stella's Mom). Up until Saturday I was going to be Shiloh, but today it is Lightning. Personally I like Bolt.

So I really like it here, lots of really cool toys to play with and three big pups. Ciara is lots of fun until I pull her tail, she doesn't like that even though she does it to Thunder. Phantom seems to want to play with me, but Mom says he only wants to play when he wants to play, and not when I do. Thunder isn't sure about me yet. He has been very nice to me, but for the most part, he is not paying any attention to me. Mom says it will just take time.

Oh, I am supposed to tell you a little about me. I come from the same line of pups as Thunder and Ciara Huricane Sibes. My mother was a pup from one of Mel's litters. And Mel is Thunder and Ciara's father. So I guess that makes Mel my grandfather, and Ciara and Thunder must be my aunt and uncle. All in the family.

I was born May 4th, so I guess I am almost 14 weeks old. Everyone tells me that I look like a mini-Dakota, but I don't know who Dakota is and I guess she was pretty special. And my first human Mom, the Momster here, and Ruby and Penny (Mayor Frankie Furter's wives) think I look a lot like Thunder did as a puppy. Mom says she thinks I am going to be a big boy like Thunder. Oh, and I have one blue eye and one brown eye. And one ear that seems to want to curl backwards a lot.

Today I got to go on my first walk and since Dad was home too, all four of us went together. Mom said it could only be a very short walk because I am still so young. But it was a lot of fun and Dad said I did a good job.

Mom made a video for you to watch.

And here a video of me playing with each of my siblings. Enjoy.

Between my walk and my playtime, I am beat.

Woos ~ Lightning Flash

Pee Ess - the Momster said that we may have a hard time keeping up with all the blogs for a bit because having a puppy in the house makes for a lot of work - guess that's me!

Hi Lightning - you are so cute! And, it looks like you are having a great time playing with your siblings!

brooke said...

Lightning! Great name! It looks like you are having a lot of fun with your new pack!

The Thundering Herd said...

What a cutie! By the way, if you go with Bolt - you are aware there is a famous Bolt, right?

Berts Blog said...

Well, I like the name lightning. And sometimes they will call you Light for short cause you will bring the light of joy.

OR maybe I am the only one who will call you that.


BeadedTail said...

Lightening, we like your new name! It was fun seeing you on your walk and also playing with your furblings! Was that Phanthom crying when you were playing with Thunder and Ciara? He sure seems to like you! Thunder will come around. He's probably thinking "oh no, not another puppy! The other one is still velcro!". BOL!

BeadedTail said...

Seems we spelled your name wrong Lightning. Sorry about that!

rottrover said...

So Blackie's our, huh??

I actually thought of Lightening, but ruled it out... I like Bolt, too. Oh well. He's adorable. Who was woo-ing during play-time? I can't believe that Phantom is so taken with him!!

Stella said...

Stella's Mom thinks it would be nice to tell the readers WHY she suggested Berrin, Bannon or Fergus for this pup's name.

She was told at the time that this boy needed an IRISH name. So she went to some trouble to find an IRISH name on the 'net.

If she had known he needed a
meteorlogical name, she might have come up with one or two of those too.

I'm glad he is here, and having fun, but I like BOLT too, like DK does.

Ruby and Penny said...

We like your name Lightning. Do you believe that is the name we were thinking for you. White Lightning. Perfect.
We are so happy that you are liking your new home. Be a good boy.
Love Ruby & Penny

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

What khuteness!!!

As fur the name, Lightning Phlash works BUT Bolt does too!!!

Of khourse, since Sibes don't always choose to hear their names......


Wyatt said...

What pretty eyes you have! You are going to keep the pack on their toes for awhile. You have enuff pups to pull a sled this winter....Wheee!

Wyatt and Stanzie

Frankie Furter said...

EXCELLENT furst walk, Lightning!!!
hehehe.. WHITE LIGHTNING.. I thought that was somethingy that came in a Mason Jar.. from W. VA.

No matter... I think it is a PERFECT name fur you.. beclaws of your brother THUNDER. I think I just might give the TWO of you.. ONE Nickname though.. I'll just say Phantom, Ciara, and STORM.
I just LOVE your EYES!!!
PeeS... I learned VERY EARLY on in my Courtship of them that Ruby and Penny are NEVER wrong. hehehe

♥I am Holly♥ said...

I actually thought of Lightning last night!! Like you said though, it's dad's call!!! I always have a horrible time with names. Love the puppy SO MUCH!!!! You will be very busy!!!! Have fun!! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

The Bleu said...

OMD!!! What a handsome boy!!! And I am so very excited for you! Your are joining THE BEST FAMILY EVER!!!

We can't wait to see and read more and more!

with love from the Bleu

P.S. My the Mom's first Golden was Comet. And she always dreamed of having Donder and Blitzen... These names mean Thunder and Lightning... Of course, out of reverence for the Luke, we will never use those names... but we think they're awesome!

ArtemisiaFSS said...

You are so cute, we can't believe we missed your arrival. As for names how about Lakhota (Lakota). It is the name of an Indian tribe the Mom was reading about in one of her books.

We can't wait to learn more about you and we bet you are a handful, especially with Ciara's help.

Karen said...

Lightning is cool, tho a bit of a mouthful considering how often you have to say it, especially to a puppy, BOL! Awesome different colored eyes, just like Zim over at army of four digest. Is this common in this breed?
Happy Walking!

Penny's Mumma

Amber DaWeenie said...

houndstooth said...

Lightning Flash, I think that's an awesome name to have! It looks to me like you are quite good for Phantom, since you're the first one I've seen him play much with. I think your pack already likes you a lot!


P.S. It looks like you might learn to walk like Rusty from The Herd. If you do, I will laugh and laugh!

Anonymous said...

If you have Thunder and Lightning, then you also need Rain. I'll begin the search immediately and report back.

24 Paws of Love said...

I with you mom, I personally like Bolt or Flash, but if Dad says, when then I guess Lightning it is...BOL!!

And Lightning you are as cute as a button and we are so jealous, we miss having a puppy around here.

Better watch out, 2 more and you'll be right up there with us!!

Maggie and Mitch said...

We expected to see you weaving through your sibs on your walkie, Lightning. You are great on the leash!
You are such a cutie!

STELLA from Down Under said...

Hi Lightning, you look like a fun boy to me. That floor looks kinda slippery though. Wish we were closer and could have a play date. Enjoy your new home, looks like you found a wonderful family for sure. No worries, and love, Stella

scotsmad said...

Looks like great fun. One of these days you'll be playing with all the big dogs, Lightning!

We think you did very well on your walk. How impressive to see four sibes walking along. Bet you turned a few heads.

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

♥Mona + Weenie + Mommy, too♥ said...

OMD!!!!! We been away from blogging for a few day6 and look what we found!! White Lightning. OMD!!!!! Mommy saw the new header before we started reading and thought "what a cute pic of Dakota". OMD!!!!! Your Daddy nust be so excited. We can't wait to see more pictures.

It was so nice to see Phantom playing with the little one. Good job Thunder!

Mack said...

Mom really has the puppy fever now! Lightning you are such a handsome young man-pup. You are really gonna love your new family.
We all loved the videos, especially the parts where Phantom was really wanting to play with you!


Gus said...

You are a cutie, and it looks like things are going very well. See, you already know that whatever is on the other side of the dog gate is better than what is on your side of the dog gate, right?

We think you are a great addition to the pack. Our only advice would be, "Don't mess with Ciara."

Gussie n teka

I think Lightning is a fitting name for you. You will soon be romping and rolling with the rest of them!

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

The play video got Mabel out of bed ...It's 5 am here!

I love these girls and their tale pulling rules. Mabel loves to pull other's tales but has a fit if they do it to her...

Your baby Woo is adoreable!

Great name, Lightning! Woosers, don't think we've ever seen Phantom looking so happy- he sure does like woo!!! Wish we were there too - we'd have a great playtime together!

jack & moo

T. Maxx said...

You're a CUTE little furball!!!


Kari in Vegas said...

Love your name :)


sprinkles said...

The way Thunder acted towards Lightening is how I expected that Phantom was be towards him. Don't know why I thought that since I've never actually met your dogs and don't know their personalities, as much as I like to think I might. I'm sure Thunder will warm up in time.

Lightening walks on a leash really well for being such a young puppy!

Doris Sturm said...

Wow! What a surprise (for me) because I just now discovered that you have a new puppy! Congratulations!!!! That's very exciting! I'm so happy for you - what a nice group of Sibs you have ... loved the walking video and your puppy playing around in the house :-)

I must've been gone longer than I thought to not have seen this till just now. I wish you all the best and good luck, much happiness together...good health and lots of fun times for you all :-)

With love
Doris and Gizzy
