    Default My New Pup

    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.

    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? ). 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.

    Awww....Cute what a great present for the family !!

    Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.

    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.
