Well we are surprising the kids this Christmas with a new puppy. Just adopted him this morning. Husky / Retriever mix. 8 weeks old. Imagine him with a big red bow - it's going to be a memorable Christmas this year in the Beals house :)

He's a cutie. Congrats, and I'm sure the kids are going to love him. That's a good mix too...huskies are insane and scary smart and retrievers are sweet and eager to please.

We got a new husky puppy a couple of months ago (he's about 4 mos now) and he's a real handful. Fortunately we have his sister (6 yrs) to help keep him in line. We don't have kids...so these are ours. Not to steal your thread but I wanted to drop in a pic if that's okay? I can remove it if not.

Hey man - this is my puppy thread! Just kidding - Your wolves... er.. dogs are beautiful.

Gorgeous ! Take loads of pics - they grow so fast you forget just how small they once were.

Soooo jealous of both of you! Huskies are the most beautiful dogs around, hands down. They're certainly a handful...what with them being such high-energy working dogs (got any sleighs that need to be pulled? :lol:). Where are you hiding this little bugger until the 25th? hopefully not in a nicely wrapped box. ;)

we pick him up Saturday. About a month ago a good friend said he would watch a puppy for us a few days before Christmas, but we never thought it would be 2 weeks early. We'll see how it goes, you know - if the pup starts eating my friends sofa, and crapping on the nice carpets, we may have to give the kids an early present. I really want to surprise them Christmas though - they have no idea.

Seconded on taking pics. I'm amazed at how quickly our guy has grown up. My phone is overflowing with pictures at this point...but I'm glad I got them all. He's always in motion so they're almost always blurry! :)

You're going to have some happy kids. Hope you can keep him "under wraps" (*not* literally) until the 25th.

cute dog - got a retriever when I was 4 - very loving dog, had some dachshounds too - a bit more "their own" but loving and cute too... and they fit on ones lap ;) ... I'd love to have a dog again but its not possible due to the work/living distance and some allergies in the famliy :(

Seriously, the dog reminds me of george clooney with his silver hair and large brown eyes!
