Mornin' Semis;

Meet Blue Boy - he's named that right now, because the couple ties different color string on the pups to keep track of them. So, here he is at just 5 weeks old :)

We're trying to decide on names now.

Have you fell in love with that beautiful face?

Look at his beautiful head - and those arms and paws - oh my, he is something special! My boy is going to be a champion - I know he will be a "healer."

It would be another 2 weeks or so before we could get him - he has to be evaluated and measured to see if he is show quality like his Daddy. Daddy Golden's name is Jerry Lee - he is a "Best of Show" and "Best of Breed" and is in a Golden Hall of Fame, so he's got the potential to measure up like his papa. We are in line to receive him and all indications are looking good that we will.

Diane had wanted to see a picture, and everyone was chiming in with support of the new pup, so I wanted you all to see him - he's still at their home for a couple of more weeks.

A pic is out on my Expressions page. I looked at his little picture this morning and smiled, I'm trying to focus on that as everyone has posted - he is pure goodness and as Brooks said, will be the best medicine for both Kim and I. We have never gotten over the loss of Sundance and at times like this, I really miss him - but I asked Sunny last night if this would be ok and he barked back OK, Papa, it's OK :)

And Kathi - they are indeed a grand breed - I've always said Goldens are like "people in fur." Their purity, their honesty, well...they are special. They are such people dogs and I just keep waiting for them to talk - just like the Golden on the Bush Beans commercial, LOL :)

Thanks, Semis; for all of your support and for your kind posts - it does feel good to have you guys all around me. Enjoy the pic :)

((SEMIS;))

Oh My! Craig he is toooo beautiful! Melts my heart!

He looks like a "Bear". Those EYES and the crossed paws. Very intelligent looking. Aw I want one (but Scooter is spoiled and loves his mama way too much to share me with anyone but the cat)

Aw..... How ever will you wait 3 weeks?

My golden's full AKC name was Rusty's Golden Dream...We combined mom and dad's name for this...

But, for us, he was always Rusty....lol!

You give me fond memories...when we visited the breeder, HE picked US! All of his brothers and sisters were all over us, as puppies do, and then tired of the game and went off. Rusty sat the whole time under a bush, till all was clear. Then, no fanfare...just walked over, plopped down in my lap, and gave me a look of "So, I've decided...when do we go home?".

When we brought him home, it was a loooooong drive...and that poor puppy got carsick...and then looked so ashamed!

When he was starting to lift his leg, just learning, he was a bit wobbly...and picked a pyrocantha bush to relieve himself on. Now these bushes have VERY long thorns...you can see where I'm going...he did, too...ended up with a swollen scrotum...VERY sick doggie...the vet saved it, but he doubted Rusty could continue the line...Funniest thing, from that point forward, for 12 years, he squatted to relieve himself...

One more (sorry). Of course, this is a 'retrieving' breed...and Rusty did it well...one day, in our backyard, a baby bird fell from it's nest. The first I knew of it was Rusty at the door, scratching to get in. He usually barked once..so I knew something was up. So, I looked out and there he was, with a wing sticking out of each side of his mouth, each flapping...he had this expression of "So, mom, PLEASE help...I don't know what to do next...I got him in my mouth...see???"

Thanks for the memories...I have always had great luck with my 4-legged friends...we even have a cat here that comes to 'visit' for coffee in the morning...

Hugs, Kathi

He is adorable! I just love puppies. My dog is 13 and slowing down quite a bit. Not sure yet how I feel about getting another dog someday.

Craig,

This is a seriously adorable dog! He looks like a "ham" here; you might have to seriously consider a modelling career for him! Just keep him away from those bushes KathiM talked about - ouch!

What a cute Puppy! I'll bet he's going to be pretty good sized. Can't wait to hear what his name will be. I know it is hard to lose a beloved pet. Still miss my Ginger! She passed in 1997. Lost my beloved Charlie in 2008.

He's beautiful.... He'll make a big inpact on you're guys life. I could never understand a house with no pets. Like I said Curly makes my day everyday.. She's here to hug with I need a hug and never leaves my side. My 4 year old Hunter said lastnight that she's just like one of us. "She's part or our family" Even at 4 he knows what a pet can bring to a house. We also have two cats who cuddle with me every night before bed. Many times laying in bed crying because of leg pain and they just love on me. Just like Curly, They seem to know when Dad needs some love. A pic is on my Expressions page of Curly too

Great Job Craig!!! Good looking pup!!

Omg Craig he is a cutie! I am so happy that you and Kim decided to get a puppy, what a wonderful addition to your family. I know that sundance would want you to be as happy as you were with him. Blue boy will give you so much joy and happiness, I can hardly wait for you! I'm excited!
Much puppy love!

What a cute yellow ball of precious!!

Ya know Craig, of all the animals, I love dogs the most. I don't mean to offend anyone that thinks their cats, parrots, or whatever is best. It's just me. When I cowboyed for living, we had 4 border collies/McNabs that were like our kids. In fact, they were family.
We've only got one dog right now and she is my family. I know exactly what you're feeling. She is epitome of sweet and loving... and I'm lucky to be loved by her.

How funny, Diane :)

I guess he could pass for that! I thought about that for a minute and started laughing!!! I remember the movie too! I'll tell him you said that, LOL :)

Of course to me, he just looks like an Angel wrapped in fur :)

I'm just so proud and happy - wish I could pass out cigars or something to everybody!

Such a wonderful feeling to share this with all of you and feel your joy :)

I've just got to figure out his name now.

Does he need a fancy name of a doggie name?

Since his daddy is named Jerry Lee...

I've thought about Dakota Lee and then in a year or so, I'd love to get him a girlfriend and name her Cheyenne Leigh.

I thought about Shayenne - but that is uniquely Chicky :)

I'm sure she would give me the ok though, LOL :)

Our Lab is/was a show specimen.He has acquired points toward his championship. Our breeder would come and pick him up and take him to shows across the mid-east. We finally got tired of him being gone so much and he was then "retired" from the show ring. He's still a handsome dude and is so much of our lives. Anxious to hear the name that you end up calling him. Names are important. Especially if you plan to enter him in the show ring.

.... Shayenne would be an awesome name!!! sooooo adorable! it makes me want to go out and get one for myself so I could sleep with it at night! You are soooo going to be spoiling that puppy, I can see it now! I know I would be! My hubby brought me home a kitten a couple weeks ago, and she is a lunatic! So much fun, we named her "Boo" and she is a very affectionate, loving kitten, who likes to beat up our cute little beagle, Sophie, who we adopted a couple months ago, and is funny that this puppy loves our kittys! I have 2 other cats outside, that are huge, and once Sophie is let outside, the first thing she runs for is the cats! they're all good pals now! I can't wait till you get this lovely angel into your arms in a couple months, it's been a rough month here, and I know she will lighten up everything up for you!

Hugssss!

I changed my mind. I looked up Ewoks and he's WAY prettier than they are.

I like Dakota Lee. Is Jerry Lee after Jerry Lee Lewis? Crazy piano player!! Saw him in person when I was about 13. Bobby Vinton. Chuck Berry. Herman and the Hermits. etc.... Ever notice how my mind flits about? Weird!

You're too smart! But you're right, the couple that owns Jerry Lee named him after Jerry Lee Lewis...his official name is "Great Balls of Fire" however they do those names.

I remember Herman and the Hermits - didn't they do "Henry the VIIIth I Am?"

Only us dinosaurs would know that one, LOL :)

And thank you for telling me that Blue Boy is better looking than an Ewok! As you say, WAY prettier :)

It's been a fun day and we have sure needed some fun with everything going on. Blue Boy is already taking on in the Sundance tradition to bring smiles to people's faces.

I like Dakota Lee too - and the girl will be Shayenne Leigh when we get her. That's got a nice ring to it, doesn't it? Dakota and Shayenne

I better work on Blue Boy 1st, LOL :)

Little Blue Boy is absolutely adorable. What is not to love about that face??? He will bring so much happiness to you and Kim. And all the work will be a great distraction, also a good thing. I love the name Dakota. However, I have to say that "Butch Cassidy" did come to mind :) HEHE.
Take care,
Joanne

Hey, Craig.

As soon as I posted my reply, I had the feeling I'd been so excited that I didn't remember to give you a hug. Shame!!

*double hugs to make up for the mistake*

You know, Brooks, when you're right, you're right. The pup did breathe some JOY back into the board today. I could feel everyone getting real loose and just having fun with this post. He sure got my mind right today and got me thinking of something else.

Just to feel "the life flow" and positive energy coming from each one of you has made me feel so good. I've enjoyed the banter between us all today - I feel alive and I feel hope!

Being able to share him with you guys today has truly been the best :)

I pulled up his picture tonight after reading some more replies and told him that he's already a "therapy dog" and doesn't even know what a difference "He" made today.

I guess we can say that Blue Boy aka Dakota Lee is the NEWEST member of our Semi;Colon family!

Kim is still fighting me on his name - I've already told her how many of you already like his name now :)

OUR new pup has taken our mind OFF of Cancer for the moment - and as Visa says, "PRICELESS"
Days like this are special on the board. I live for moments like this when we are all just sharing and having fun.

I'm ready to toast marshmellows amd make smores around the fire, hold hands and sing Kumbaya -or maybe we can do the bunny hop - well maybe at Colonpalooza, LOL :)

Hey! Is there a 'Coyote Ugly' in Ft. Worth????? I'll need to pack an extra bra...lol...

(For those who don't know...at the Colonpalooza in Nashville, I danced on the bar in this saloon, and left my bra...MAN! Made for an interesting time for the remainder of the night!!!)

Hugs, Kathi

I asked the lady if we could come out to her place this w/end for a quick visit so we could see little Blue Boy and his sisters.

She said that we could - so excited to see this puff ball.

And it looks like we can pick him up around the 27th or 28th - so just a couple more weeks.

Just seeing him and touching him will heal many wounds this w/end...Kim is excited.

I told her what a "healer" he already was yesterday and that he brought JOY to the board for a day as Brooks said - he's an unexpected gift to all of us.

I just received a new pic this morning that I thought I'd share too, since it's so cute.

She took a pic of the whole litter: Blue Boy with his Sisters. From left to right, it will be Pink Girl, Purple Girl, Blue Boy (head sticking above his sisters) and Green Girl.

This is them at 6-weeks now! What a picture perfect moment - it's a Kodak Moment or a Hallmark Card, toooo sweet for words.

The lady (Patti) wrote me this morning and told me she a "good cry" and smiled after reading my email about how Blue Boy brightened everyone's day and added a splash of JOY to our world. She was so happy to hear about this...I told her all about YOU and what kind of people that you all are.

OK, out on my Expressions :)

Blue Boy is a cutie. Looks like he will be a good size puppy. You'll have to get the new baby some new toys and a baby blanket. My Dog Radar likes his super soft blanket, its a baby blanket.
