Exactly what I said!

I had heard a very cynical thing a long time ago -- that babies and puppies HAVE to be so cute, because the things they do make you want to kill 'em...

Gotta wonder if there is some truth in that... every time I see a puppy I want to take it home, and I am a pretty tough guy, generally...

More shameless pandering of puppy pics - of course he is the cutest puppy that ever lived.

We named him Milo. Somehow it just seemed to fit - but thanks for all the suggestions!

Re: Pets in ER

Milo is so cute. I like the picture of him biting on the big stick in the yard. My little Maddie brings little sticks into the house all the time. Milo will probably bring you BIG sticks or small trees!

Re: Pets in ER

Thanks for all the compliments. I think everyone who has seen him for the first time has said, "That thing is HUGE!"

Uncle Mick - did you change the name of your Milo?

I just now remembered where I'd heard the name before - anyone read the Alex Delaware mystery series my Jonathan Kellerman? His partner was named Milo. But he had a pug named Spike.

Nope - figured he already 'knew' his name at 6-8 weeks old. Your Milo has the beauty AND size contest won hands down.

heh heh heh

Postscript: 46 bucks cute(not) and the little turd is up to 26 lbs - pets, ya gotta lov em.

Re: Pets in ER

I've been a dog lover, all my life. I've had mostly mutts, or dogs with questionable
history. They have all been fine dogs and they all, have a story.

I've been fascinated, with giving them unusual names. I guess, to make them unique.
I had a Peke, named Winston. A Lhaso Apso, named Stuart, (he didn't care for other spellings. )

The Crown Princess, of all my dogs, was Misty Lady. A Registered, Female Shih Tzu!
A proud and beautiful, lovely,- black and white package of devotion and love!
She, will never be replaced, in my heart! But, She is now gone.

But, after 6 months, I've been getting pressure, for a new dog!!! DW, has been beating the "Water to a Froth," searching for a new pet!

I'm beat down! We're looking again! Probably, for another Shih Tzu.

I'd love, to name a dog, "BOOG," " ELLIOTT," or "ENDICOTT."

But, with DW in the picture, I'm not sure I'll get the chance.
