Our new sister

Patches and I are proud to introduce our new little sister! She doesn't have a name yet, so we are all calling her "girl puppy." Girl puppy is a beagle/pekingese mix (my mama obviously has a thing for beagles, since we are all 1/2 beagle!).

Patches wasn't exactly warm and welcoming when he first met her. In fact, his bark - a high pitched woman's scream, I kid you not - scared the crap out of her. Um. Literally. As it does most living things. I liked her immediately.

Girl puppy is a bundle of activity. Patches was very sick and sleepy when he came home, but this girl is healthy as a horse, and is keeping us on our toes! We played so much last night, running around our house, that we all collapsed into a big heap on our mama's legs at bed time!
Yes, Patches is totally spooning me. Returning the favor, now that he's the biggest pup in our pack.

Girl puppy hasn't had a single accident in the house, and has gone pee and poop OUTSIDE. (She's a good pile pooper - no 360 degree poops like me, or the walk-a-thon poop like Patches.) She's also doing a great job going into her kennel!

If anyone would like to make a suggestion for a name, please leave a comment! I went two weeks without a name, and Patches wasn't Patches until a full week after coming home. I can't let that happen to Girl puppy!

She is so cute! I think she looks like a Rosa! I just love that name! Rosa! But thats just me! If you don't like Rosa what about Ava? My Mommy's name is Ana & she always said she liked the name Ava, what do you think? I got tons more! My Mommy had my named picked out months before she got me!

Uh oh! Another cute puttpy in your house!! She is very cute! We're not much help with names - look at my name! Mom says Dad isn't allowed to choose names anymore unless it's Patience, Calmness or Mellow.

It looks like she is wearing a mask. How about Bandit? Best of luck with your new sister. I know first hand little sisters can be a handfull! She's adorable.

Looks like she should be names "Spoiled". So mama, who's part Irish, says you should name her "Dean Peata As" , which is Irish for spoil, as in to spoil a child. You could call her Peata for short ;). Mama thinks it's pronounced "pee AH ta", but wouldn't count on it more than just a guess!

Hi Sparky and Patches!

A little sister! How exciting! Finally there is a girly girl to boss you guys around. She sure is adorable! She kind of look like a combination of Sparky and Patches. The name is a tough one. I didn't get a solid name until I was home for more than a week. How about CC for Cute & Cuddly...IDK!

Girl Puppy is absolutely adorable! I don't have any suggestions for a name, and I was nameless for awhile when I first came home. Names are hard to choose!

It looks like the little baby sister is adjusting just fine to her new home and family.

Awwww, the three of you look so cute together! How about Lily? Mommy has a thing for flower and plant names (such as Poppy and Clover!)
