my NEW puppy on the way home!

Hi everyone,

My husband has traveled to pick up our new puppy- and he will be coming home tomorrow. My husband just called me after seeing the puppy for the first time and has mademe so nervous! He said the puppy has a very short nose and does not look like what he expected! Parker was a bit older when we got him (4 months old)and was bigger- Actually he has turned out to be a chunkey monkey at 19.5 pounds at 17 months old. This little guy is only 3 months old and looks so small to hubby- he thinks he will be very tiny- a HUGE contrast to Parker. Is there any way of predicting this? I was so excited, now I am so anxious ! Anyone with words of wisdom for me?
Hope my pictures download- these pictures were taken by the foster mom several weeks ago.

Oh, he is such a sweetie. Congratulations. I think we all have the same anxiety when we get a second dog. It has been mentioned in other threads. When I got my 2nd one, I wanted to turn around and bring her back to the breeder. I was a wreck the whole ride home.

But once he is home with you and you see how much fun they will have together, all those worries go out the window.

Can't wait to see many more pictures.

He is sooo cute! Mirabel is on the smaller size but you would never know by her personality. She does just fine with my other dogs who are much larger. I think you will be just fine with him. Congratulations!!!

Oh he is so cute. Jasper was tiny as a puppy and is now 17 lbs at 2 years. So I don't think there is a way to tell-- but he sure is cute. can't wait to see more pictures when he gets home

Thank you for your words- I am at home - and I don't know what to say to my husband! I have been looking all of the forum at pictures of the multiples-some have 2 different sizes, some are the same. Some have longer noses, some are shorter noses. And of course all different colors and hair textures.
Parker just kept growing and growing- Do they tend to grow more during certain months?
Maybe I should just go to bed and stop perseverating before I make myself crazy!

Your new little one looks adorable!!
PS-Havs seem to recognize other havs and get along well. (at least at all our play groups so far they have)

The puppy is adorable and you're about to fall in love. Milo has a shorter muzzle and I love it. The minute you see him, your doubts will go out the window. Have a glass of wine and go to bed early, then call me in the morning or post here when they get home and let us know how wonderful he really is.

Oh congrats!!!!
I'm so excited you're getting your new baby home!
My husband is standing over me saying "he's sooo cute, he's sooo cute" Gotta say THANKS, cause he's been a bit wishy washy about getting another. I think this may have pushed him closer to my side Not that it mattered, lol. I'm gettin' one anyways, hehehe.

Lynn, he looks perfectly cute to me and if he's 3 mo. now and according to the pictures 2 1/4 mo. back then he doesn't look too tiny to me. Don't know, it's hard to tell from pics, but just go to bed and we can't wait to hear tomorrow how well everything went!
