View Full Version : Introducing... Puppy!

11-02-2007, 12:43 AM
My new niece!
Today, Sarah (AnimalHouse26) got a 9 and a 1/2 week old puppy from a friend of a friend. They were getting rid of her because she pee'd too much (DUH! Puppy!)

Anyhow, Sarah was going to foster her or keep her. I told her how my brother and his girlfriend had been looking for a puppy (for his girlfriend's two sons, but I think it's for my brother!) So, the kind heart that Sarah is, she gave the puppy to my brother and his girlfriend, even though she really fell in love with her. :)

They cannot thank you enough, Sarah. The boys are asleep and haven't met the puppy but they will in thee morning. Becky (brother's girlfriend) loves her already. She's pee'd twice and pooped, both times outside. She cried for a bit in her crate when they put her to bed but she's quieted now (I'm staying the night at their house.)

Without further ado... meet "Lily" -- they will be changing her name, though. Any suggestions? My brother would like something fish/boating related. I suggested Cabela (like the store Cabela's, Cuh-bell-uh) and my brother likes it. They haven't decided yet though.

These are pictures I took today when Sarah brought her to my house. She brought her just to visit/show me. My brother and I drove to Sarah's house around 10PM to get her tonight. :)

Mufasa just loves her and the other 3 are great with her too. Which is good, because until she grows a little she will be coming to my house everyday while they work. :)



She reminds me of a baby Simba!

I also attached some photos of her from tonight at their house. She absolutely LOVES the pink rabbit I gave her. I gave her a bunch of toys and treats, collars and leashes, etc. I put a bandana on her head and she didn't even care. ;)
Soo.. I need name suggestions and breed guesses. It'll be hard to guess until she's older, but I see some possible Shepherd.
Isn't she precious? Thank you again soooooo much Sarah. They really are totally apprecative and excited about their new baby. My brother especially. :)

OMG **melt** what a gorgeous pup. Amber maybe?

11-02-2007, 04:28 AM
Kay she is a doll! She does look like Simba might have looked at that age. :) I like the name Cabela. My son fishes and often buys things from them. Great pictures as always. :)

11-02-2007, 04:49 AM
Oh my! What a cutie! And being your brother's puppy, I'm sure we'll see many pictures of her. ;) She does look like a little Simba! :D

Cute! :D I have to agree, when I saw the first attached picture I thought, oh look it's a baby Simba. The picture of her and Simba together is adorable.

What an absolutely gorgeous little puppy! She sounds a real sweetie too.
I'm sure the boys will just love her. :D

11-02-2007, 06:28 AM
Oh Kay she is ADORABLE! Your very lucky that you get to keep her during the day. It's like being a grandma, you get to keep her and spoil her during the day and then send her home:)
I look forward to seeing many more pictures!

11-02-2007, 07:10 AM
She is adorable. :)

11-02-2007, 07:41 AM
Here's a photo of my four and her that I took a few minutes ago. She loves following them around. Right now she's sleeping on the wheels of my chair, so I guess I'm not moving for a while!!

Oh Kay, she's absolutely precious! I was going to say she looks like a mini Simba, too. :)

11-02-2007, 08:45 AM
I keep coming up with Lucy! lol :-) Or Marlee

11-02-2007, 09:04 AM
She's so cute! :D Congratulations to your brother and his girlfriend. :)

11-02-2007, 09:32 AM
Kay, this is such a sweet photo! *elyse melts into a puddle from cuteness*
You're a wonderful photographer! Amazing. What breed of dog is she? The only name I can think of is Dory (the friend in "Finding Nemo" ... I was mulling over Disney names because of your Lion King kids). Welcome, adorable puppy!

11-02-2007, 09:46 AM
I'm really stuck on the name Cabela. I think it's cute.

Some other fishing related names I came up with, gonna give my brother this list when he gets off work. He may just come home with a name for her, since he works at a bait/reel shop.
Berkley (bait)
Amerlin (fishing boat)
Daiwa (fishing reel)
Balao (Bally-hoo, bait)

I think Chum is my second favorite.

She knows sit and I just taught her shake. She will be trained very quickly. :)

11-02-2007, 10:03 AM
She looks like a spunky little girl. Loved the pic with Nala. :) Reminds me
of a little Simba too.The picture of her with the bandanna on her head is
hilarious. :D

11-02-2007, 10:06 AM
Awwwww! Kay she is too precious! I really like the name Cabela, my dad also shops there. ;) I bet those kids are going to love her to pieces!

11-02-2007, 10:10 AM
She reminds me of a baby Simba!

"Are you my mommy?"

Oh she IS adorable and so lucky to have so many people who want her. She is really all set now! Bright future for this sweetie.

11-02-2007, 10:47 AM
Aw she's really cute!
I think the name Indy would suit her but it's not boat related.
I agree she looks like a baby Simba.

11-02-2007, 10:54 AM
AWWW he is adorabal he does look like simba what breed is simba??
and i lok the last photo of his teeth and his bunny rabbit :p

11-02-2007, 11:29 AM
She is so adorable I love the picture of her and Mufasa...I am not sure about names I am not good at that :D

11-02-2007, 11:41 AM
awww im so jealous i cant be home with her. i miss her.

i was thinking the name Chevy..

Chevy girl!!!

11-02-2007, 11:52 AM
Congrats to your brother and his girlfriend!!!:) She sure is a cutie pie and looks like she could be related to Simba.:)

11-02-2007, 12:10 PM
I had to LOL at the "Are you my mommy?"...... so freaking cute!!!

and Nala seems like wondering " how did Simba shrinked so small?"....

both of those pics are way too adorable..... they HAVE to get framed or at least printed......

so now...... you have to get a black an tan nephew.......;) ;)

She is adorable! I love the pic of the whole lot of them together. She fits right in already. Congratulations!

11-02-2007, 02:35 PM
Actually, I like her original name - Lily. Someone suggested Lucy - another of my favorites.

11-02-2007, 02:53 PM
awww I like the first one you came up with Kay. It is kinda Sticking around. And yes, sit was VERY easy for her here lol. I was SHOCKED how fast she learned it.

11-02-2007, 02:54 PM
i dont know why but when i saw these i said to myself "aww shes a lil chookie isnt she?" and i think the name chookie would be quite sweet. or cookie.

11-02-2007, 03:08 PM
I have no name suggestions though but she's absoutely adorable!! What a sweet, sweet face. I can't believe they got rid of her. She's such a pretty girl. :)

11-02-2007, 07:09 PM
OOo..I think Cabela would be perfect for her!! What a CUTIE!! I'm so excited to watch her grow.

11-02-2007, 08:40 PM
Oooh that last picture of her and Simba is too cute!!

Instead of Berkley, how about Barkley?? :D

11-02-2007, 10:04 PM
Ahhh what a darling little one and yes my little Nena is NOT even 5% housebroken she will pee and poo inside every morning and thats my least consern i clean it up and move on :) That would NEVER make me get rid of her, what a stupid excuse. And is sad i see many giving away their dogs Nena is 16 months and still not housebroken :eek:

11-02-2007, 11:19 PM
Goodness, Kay. She's gorgeous! I'm sure those boys are going to love her. She's got such a precious face and fits right in. I havn't a guess as to her breed, but there were some names I liked that have been mentioned.


And then there's the one that's stuck in my head. It seems a bit odd when I put it down here, but I really like it. Simple, and to the point....


11-03-2007, 09:13 AM
She's got Simba face and Nala ears and leg! She sure is a cutie!

11-03-2007, 08:59 PM
i got some dog food for her today and her first toy and some soap! bath time now.

11-03-2007, 10:23 PM
OHMYGOSH! She's adooorable! : D I love her head tilt picture... she already looks so smart, and she looks like she has an awesome personality. Congrats to you & your family!

I like Cabela, for her. Here are a few others I think would fit her well... some fish related, some not.

Barracuda (or just Cuda)

What does Orion think of her?

11-04-2007, 12:03 AM
she is cute! :D
she could be a MINI ME of Simba!

What a cutie! She does look so much like Simba. How lucky she is to have so many cousins to play with!

11-04-2007, 07:04 AM
A Simba look a like for sure. Baby Girl has a definite advantage with her Auntie Kay being there to provide support and training.

Oh boy is she cute! I like the name Cabella, it's feminine sounding, not common, and keeps the boating refrence.

11-04-2007, 08:20 PM
PUPPY!! *dies from cuteness* :D She's really really cute...love that face and those ears. She does look like a mini Simba. It will be interesting to see what she looks like full grown.

As for names with the fishing theme I like Cabela, Berkley, Minnow, and Fisher.

11-04-2007, 09:34 PM
Call the paramedics! Another headtilter! She's precious Kay! I have to give Simba tons of credit. He was #1 dog in your house and then had to share and he's so patient and sweet, esp. getting smacked in da face! Excellent pictures as usual! Any dog lucky enough to be in the Knapp family is bound to be another adorable smartie pants!

11-04-2007, 11:52 PM
I called Kenny tonight to see if she was coming to "Aunt Kay's Daycare" tomorrow. They still haven't decided on a name. :rolleyes: Guess I'll be calling her "HEY PUPPY!" again. :p

Sarah (AnimalHouse26,) Don, Mufasa, and I went over there on Saturday to visit with the puppy. She is just too cute.

Orion is fine with her, we raised him around dogs and he's a very good boy. The best cat ever. ;) The puppy still isn't sure about him, she sorta avoids him.

11-07-2007, 06:24 PM
Aunt Kay, did Puppy get a name yet? She's soooooo cute! She's got a head tilt just like Mufasa!

11-07-2007, 06:41 PM
Still no name! She now knows the trick "wave" though. :) Taught it to her yesterday.

11-08-2007, 04:25 AM
hello there gorgeous girl :)

11-08-2007, 05:10 AM
Oh, my, a mini Simba! She is so adorable! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v11/CwmmawrJet/Smiles/wub.gif

She's adorable and smart, too. Of course, any puppy in Aunty Kay's care is going to pick up on things really quick - they have a terrific teacher!

Hope she's doing well.

11-15-2007, 03:42 PM
Aunt Kay, does Puppy have a name yet?

11-15-2007, 06:12 PM
Awwww that is such an adorable puppy!:D I hope whatever name is picked, that it certainly suits em. I personally really like Cabela.

11-15-2007, 07:12 PM
wow lilly is adorable! i bet she is mixed with some kind of terrier because of her little tail :)

11-15-2007, 08:14 PM
What an adorable little addition! Congrats to the whole family! :D I love the name Cabela personally.

You know, if you look real close at that group shot, she and Simba are holding their front legs in exactly the same pose. Perhaps she is Pit and Shephard like Simba. :D

I love her black face and ears. Just wanna kiss that face. :D

11-15-2007, 08:37 PM
Her name is Cabela! or bela for short. she seems to respond to the name becouse it has been said many time to try and decide on her name. Her is a picture of her in Kays back yard.


I am waiting a few more weeks and then taking her on a boat ride. I hope she likes it becouse i will be a constant activity if she enjoys it. :)

11-15-2007, 08:40 PM
I'm glad you finally chose her name! It will be so much easier at "daycare" rather than referring to her as "HEY!" or "NO!" :p

Ginger's Mom
11-15-2007, 08:55 PM
I think Cabela is a great name. I hope she likes sailing with you.

11-15-2007, 11:07 PM
I LOVE the name Lilly, but as soon as i seen the pics... it just don't fit. I keep coming back to Gabby. ...even though it's not sporty.

Congrats to them on their new pup.

11-15-2007, 11:11 PM
I'm glad you finally chose her name! It will be so much easier at "daycare" rather than referring to her as "HEY!" or "NO!" :p


11-15-2007, 11:38 PM
Hee hee, she was probably thinking her new name was Puppy Girl :p

Her name is Cabela! or bela for short. she seems to respond to the name becouse it has been said many time to try and decide on her name.

11-18-2007, 12:56 PM
Awe congratss to your sister!
What a cutie, so darn adorable.
Cabela is an adorable name as well.

11-19-2007, 12:14 PM
Cabela, Bella, Puppy Girl, you are simply adorable and I hope you have a very long, happy, healthy, wonderful life!
