Success beyond my wildest dreams!!!
My project is complete with thanks to one very sharp-eyed friend who spotted this little boy on Facebook and told Mom about him; to our many blogger furiends who left all sorts of suggestions in their comments for how I could make this work; to the White Dog Army for their special powers that kicked in at the last moments; to Sue from The Portuguese Water Dog Blog who has found a way for Mom to have a plush white sibe made for Dad; and to all of you for your support and encouragement. Our biggest thanks have to go to our very wonderful friend Ann from Zoolatry for helping us out with all the beautiful headers and photos that have appeared in the past few posts. If you missed my posts from Thursday and Friday, I have included them at the end of this post. And I know it might appear that I told you a little fib about not getting any white sibe soon, but if you read carefully, what I did say, was that it "doesn't seem like" that was going to happen:)
This is one of the first photos we saw of our new little boy.
And this is another one, he is only about 5-6 weeks old in these pics.
Here he is at about 12 weeks.
Some of you may remember that Dad wanted another blue-eyed white Siberian girl. Well, I didn't quite get it all perfect, but a white Siberian bi-eyed boy isn't too bad. Doesn't he look like a mini-Dakota? And yes, that first photo in Thursday's post really IS Dakota.
Now to get that gate open and set him on his way to OP. Mom is on the road this morning to meet him and transport him home to all of us here. We hope to be able to show you more pics later today or for sure on Sunday.
The story of getting him here is rather long and complicated. It was like a roller coaster ride, up and down, for more than a month. But in the end it all worked out perfectly.
Now we are sure you are wondering about his name. It is going to be Dad's call in the end, and he does have one name that he is considering. But we are very open to any ideas you may have - please leave your thoughts in your comment. Maybe one of you will be very creative.
