Looks like Tessa has a little brother!
I've been afraid to post this for fear of jinxing something but his Baer test yesterday was perfect and he is being microchipped and getting his first shots today so it looks like a go.
We’ve been puppy looking for a while and now he is almost here! Boomer is the name the breeder gave him. I’m still thinking of other names but my DH and DD want to keep Boomer. So we’ll see. The name seems to fit. It means "strong, bold, loving, jumpy and fit"
He’s from Wincroft in St Louis. He comes home this Saturday at 4 days short of 10 weeks. We’ll be in St Louis from Thursday till Saturday. The 5 hr round trip for 4 more days didn't seem to make much sense.
My son graduates college on Sat morning and we will pick up Boomer before we head back home. What a great day, huh?? While we are gone, Tessa will be staying with her agility instructor, who she adores, so she may not want to come home, heh.
He is adorable, isn't he?
And what kind of idiot doofus goes to a breeder's home with an uncharged camera? Um, yeah, that would be me
. We managed to get only one picture last Friday and were lucky to get that one.
The first picture was taken at last month’s puppy party.
It looks like he will eventually be a redhead like his daddy Truman. Boomer’s roots are strawberry blonde and his breeder is sure he will be a redhead.
His grandpa is Tessa’s great grandpa (Buster) so we’re kinda keeping it in the family
Tessa met him for the first time on Friday and they had fun playing with each other. Boomer is an outgoing love who couldn’t get enough of us when we were visiting. To him we were definitely the most interesting things in the room. He just wanted to face us with all 4 paws on our chest giving us non-stop kisses. If he bounded off to play he’d be right back to us in a heartbeat. All it took was a smoochy sound
We’re beyond excited. And busy getting things ready. My nest emptied last August and we're working to fill it right back up! My DD will be home for the summer and although she’ll be working at her summer job it will still be an extra set of hands at times. Which I think I will need, lol.
I was going to wait till right before we leave on Thursday to post this but I never was good at keeping my own secrets, lol!
