I'm SO excited....

....And I just can't hide it!!  

Everything has been arranged as of today for my puppy to be delivered to New York for me!  He is 7 weeks and 6 days old.  He's a fawn colored Bullmastiff, and I can't wait to pick him up!  He will arrive here on Saturday the 12th and I will go to the airport to get him.  He's got the celebrity treatment, right??  I grabbed a couple of pictures from the website of him at the breeder's kennel.  He's adorable, and I just want to cuddle him up!

Sorry the pics are small, but when I enlarged them, they became really grainy.  The 2nd pic is pretty clear and larger than the other 2 though, so at least you can see him!  I'll take lots of pictures once he moves in!

I've been wanting a puppy for some time now, and it finally worked out that we are able to get one.  

My mom has a Bullmastiff, as I mentioned in an earlier post.  They are very large dogs, but make perfect pets as they are very loving and gentle.  They also require very little grooming and beyond daily walks, not a lot of exercise.  They spend a lot of time sleeping because they grow so much in their first 2 years of life.  

Marc and I are starting to pick out some names, which ones do you like?

Ranger [like ARMY airborne]
Maximus [Max]
Rommel [This is Marc's favorite...]

What do you think?  I'd love to hear your ideas also.  We just have to meet him before we decide on a name for him. 

I hope y'all have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Rommel is my fav, too! : ) We had a dog for seven years before getting pregnant- it was a great experience for us. So happy your family is growing with a fur baby! : )

  2. Like you said, you'll have to snuggle with him for a while to figure out what his name should be. I can't wait to meet him, either. They are such awesome creatures.

  3. So exciting! Can't wait to see more pictures. They say a puppy is great practice for a baby!

  4. Thanks everyone!! I can't wait!!

  5. That is super exciting! Congrats!
