We chose our girl! She'll come home with us in 3 weeks. We are thrilled.The breeder is New Destiny, and peppersb's Sam is the sire!
Here are a couple of shots. In one of them you can see how light her face is. It looks like she's going to be silver. Her name is Cleo, short for Cleopatra. :)

This is my first time trying to post photos...i hope it works! (well it sort of worked...don't know how to fix the sideways one!)

Congratulations, Cleo is beautiful. You'll love watching how Cleo's color changes over the next few years as she lightens.

Oh my! *gasp* ! Cleo is strikingly beautiful! What a pretty girl she'll grow up to be. And I bet she has a great temperament if she takes after Peppersb's Sam.:angel: So wow! 3 more weeks. I'm very happy for you! I think if she goes silver, that will be awesome and so much fun to watch her change!

This is very interesting, peppersb! Looks like Cleo will definitely be bigger than her Grandma Cammie, and probably smaller than daddy Sam. She was 17lbs at 13 weeks, and now 19 just a week later. (Part of it may be she was having stomach troubles between 11-13 weeks, so she's catching up now.) I'll be interested to see where she is in a week or two!
