Saturday's Success




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.

Gus said...

He is bootiful. Since he is still a puppy, I can say that, but I am sure he will want to be Handsome later on.

Looking forward to watching him grow.

Stella said...

Hooray for you, TD! This guy is a real beauty and its gonna be great fun to watch him grow up. My name for this boy has been Fergus right along but I guess Dad doesn't care for it. But what a cute little Fergie he would be!

I would love to be there for the Woos meet-up!

Kisses,
Stella

Oh whatsa cutie pies. Wesa can't wait to learn more about your new member including his name. We hope your daddy is super happy and I'm sure your mama is happy too.
Much luvums,
The Slimmer Puggums

Pees: Wesa had mama look up popular Sibe names...and we liked the name Apollo (Greek God of the Sun...however is does also mean "destroyer") and Kobe (Japenese for "Joy"). Wesa think your dad will have the perfect name!!

Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

Oh Congrats to the new family member! Hope your Moms has a safe trip! We can't wait to meet him!!

Woofs and Kisses!

SissySees said...

Mom's a little misty and Gretchen is focused on her, but this is important enough for me to write my own comment!!

He's adoggable. Can't wait to see/hear more. And no help on names here; Dadaw picks names before pups, and I think you heard the story about Mama and Gg's 27 names...

BeadedTail said...

Thunder, you did good making a little white Sibe puppy for your Dad! We were hoping that was what you were doing but were afraid to say anything for fear of jinxing it! You new little brofur is absolutely adorable! We don't have any name suggestions either but we bet Dakota whispers something in your Dad's ear once he meets him and learns more of his personality. We can't wait to learn more about your little addition!

Tank said...

Fido?

Ruby and Penny said...

OMG!! He is so beautiful. Congratualtions to your dad and all of you. TD you have done a fabulous job of finding your dad a white sibe puppy. He does look like Dakota, but he kind of reminds us of you too TD.
We can't wait to see some more pics of him and know his name.
Love Ruby & Penny
Pees - those headers and pics are great. Ann is marvelous.

Hay TD, our Mom could use your help on completing a few projects around here. You did a great job. We can't wait to meet your new little guy. We're all doing a happy dance for you. Poor Ciara, she's not the baby anymore.

Lucille, the Great Dane from Italy said...

I was actually going to say that something odd was there...
four instead of three... never been good at maths but things were not really in order...
So we went back a bit and realised how many posts we had missed and specially these last posts!!!!
Welcome in the family dear Lightning, you are so nice!!!
Ciao Lucille
