Muttley Monday - First Meeting

So how do you pick out a puppy from this mess of 4 week old cuteness?
Bailey is the one laying down by the stove, watching the action
I didn't.  The puppy picked me.  I got on the floor to get a good look at these guys.  They were all interested in playing with each other, as puppies are.

Except for one. One looked at me, walked over, crawled into my lap, and fell asleep.

I picked that one, but I always say he picked me.

My friend Andrea holding Bailey, one of his siblings wanting in on the action
Bailey was quiet, mellow, and sweet right from the start.   I had to wait 4 more weeks before I could take him home, but we got one last parting action shot of him before we left.

HE IS SOOOOOOOO CUTE!!!!!!!! :)

I HEART PUPPIES!

I chose Sophie because I thought it was a boy... and she was eating all of the plants, I thought it was cute.

Heather chose Frank because he was a monster. Leader of the pack and causing all of the mayhem.

Oh sweetness. A match made in heaven for sure. Bailey made an excellent pick!

"I didn't. The puppy picked me." - Truest words ever spoken.

It is same way we got my childhood dog and the same way we got our Bailey. I really wish we had pictures from when we picked him up, but he immediately fell asleep in Jennie's arms.

Shocking to think that something that little grew into such a big dog as Bailey :)

So great!!! Tucker was part of a litter that my SIL Anna's boyfriend's dog had. He was the second largest puppy in the litter and he would follow me around when I would go over to the house and help her with the puppies (She was 8 months pregnant when they were born). I also like to say thatTucker chose me and he is definately my dog, he does a lot with me as well. He has adopted Tommy as his "Boy" and he follows him around when he is outside and keeps track of him, LOL!

it's funny how true it is about the puppies picking you--
experienced many examples of that thru my own puppy days growing up and with my in-laws getting pups too.

How did you only end up taking one puppy home?? hahah.. so cute!

Jess @ Blonde Ponytail said...

ADORABLE!!!! Yes, I think THEY always pick us. I was tempted to take two from Coop's litter.

The Dog Whisperer would say you made the best choice based on his temperment!
