Today I brought home our new male Standard puppy that we named Sting.
Sting is out of a Dual Ch Sire and his Dam is Titled in Obediance and Rally. He's littermates to the creme male I was originally hoping to get for Christmas. Sting fitted what I had been looking for more then his creme littermate brother, so the black dog it was. He looks just like his daddy!


Im also happy to say all my dogs welcomed him in a friendly manner so that went smooth. Im a happy girl now! lol

will have a black one in January.

His Dam and Sire sound wonderful, are you planning on

How exciting. He is so handsome. So out of curiousity - what did he "have" that the cream didn't? Also - again out of curiousity - did the husband finally give in to work with you? (I think that was a problem before, right?)
How fun to have two spoos! Please post lots and lots of pictures. Will you show him? (I'm guessing the answer is yes) :)

Hey Jenn, I can tell by your first picture that you posted that you really are a HAPPY girl now, I can tell by your big smile. "Sting" really is a nice looking young fellow. Did you name him, or was he already named? I really like that name. Have fun with your new little boy.

Lets see....Im going to try and answer all the questions in one reply. lol

The cream boy was the largest in the litter and over the last 2 weeks turned a more like a very light apricot rather then creme. Usually creme pups lighten a little as they mature. I was worried that wouldn't be the case. Plus if he did turn apricot (like his mother) he wouldn't do so great in AKC. Its not a prefered color even though its excepted. Sting is really square and the creme was a little longer. Sting is average size for a male almost 13 weeks and the creme/apricot boy was larger. Sting has a better tail that stands straight rather then curl over slightly like the creme/apricot pup and better rear angles. The creme puppy had a nice long muzzle but Stings is a good length too.

Then last night I thought I'd look to see if she still had any pups available and she lowered her prices. Her father is ill and she really needed to find good homes now, if possible. So I called her again (the 4th time in a month) and she made me a GREAT deal. There was no way I was passing it up this time and thanks goodness I didn't! Hubby agree'd I would never get another opportunity like this. So first thing this morning I drove up there.

His name was puppy...lol I named him Sting. Im planning to show him if he turns out. He definately is a show potential right now. My husband is impressed by him already...just by his looks. His puppy came with everything from a puppy aptitude test, puppy contract, copies of his parents health certificates, copies of there titles, copies of the sire and dams 5 gen pedigree, his puppy cert, information on his delivery, his daily weight, weekly evaluations, the recorded vet notes from his check up's and his shot records. I couldn't of bought from a better more informative breeder. She is awesome! My husband couldn't believe how detailed all his info is. Its tells us when he began walking and that he was the first to walk and other thing like how he was born not breathing and they had to revive him. Its just great.

Anyways.....lol Im still very excited that this worked out after all. Thank you everyone for you kind reply's.

A silver is the ONLY color my husband would allow me to get if the dog were male. He made a deal with me when we first starting looking that I could have a FEMALE dog only. That was the deal so I stuck to it on the condition that should a silver become available from the breeder we were talking to at the time that he would agree no matter the *** since they are a little harder to come by and that is my most favorite favorite FAVORITE color.

I didn't know apricots didn't do as well in the ring, thats interesting. Amazing how much color can play a role in that isn't it. I see a fair amount of apricots at shows here, more than I see silvers/blues. Black and white are about tied for most common at the shows in my area. In fact I'd have to say black dogs are probably more common in my little corner of the world, at least as pets goes. Of all the standards I groom Only one of them isn't black. Interesting. I can't wait to see pictures of your boy as he grows. How exciting!!

Ohh more new babies :biggrin: I think you have joined the ever growing group of MPS (Multiple Poodle Syndrome) sufferers. I am only just resisting because of the old dog, if we were a one dog family I'd get a silver in a heart beat.

Can't wait to watch him grow via lots of pics :smile:
