    she's peacefully sleeping in her crate. I've never had a puppy this quiet their first night away from mom. As long as I'm in the room she's quiet as a mouse, aside from a few dreams [​IMG]

    thanks! she rocks [​IMG]
    after looking at a ton of puppies and shelters, calling all the springer rescue groups, and a bad experience with another puppy, I think she's exactly what I've been looking for [​IMG]
    she's funny, she's taken quite a shine to me already, when anyone else talks to her she turns her back to them LOL
    she's still pretty frightened by the whole thing, but as long as I'm around she's alright. She'll hide by my feet, or like tonight I was laying in the grass and she climbed up on my back and hid from my parent's dog, a 9 year old terrier that couldn't be more gentle, but she's scared to death of him. He LOVES puppies and is super gentle with them, I hope they'll be friends.

    I found her south of peublo kind of by accident looking through the colorado springs paper. Drove down, Mom was super nice and all the puppies were great, I had a hard time picking just one [​IMG]

    I have more pictures but I'll refrain from going overboard... [​IMG]

    ugh so much for a peaceful night. think I slept about 3 hours total. She's alright as long as she's touching me. She even got a free shower today, I was in there so she climbed right in, nevermind the hot water falling on her head.

    Awwww...I want a puppy but I'm afraid it'll destroy my dvd's and home theater stuff. Not to mention chewing through wires and shocking itself. Now that I got a house and a nice big fenced in backyard that it can run around in.

    How about "Dotty" (all the freckles on her nose)?

    Congratulations Philip.

    That is an adorable pup, her eyes are hypnotic. Looks like a Sammy.

    You lucky dog! Pun intended, and I think it applies to both of you. As for a name how about Denon, Ok that was off the top of my head. Here's another, since I remember you like Aprilia's how about Mille or Tuono? Yes I suck at name recommendations but congrats anyway, she's a cutie!

    As for keeping puppy quiet at night, if you haven't already tried these, put a hot water bottle(with fairly warm water)and a ticking alarm clock. The clock apparently sounds like a heartbeat and the water bottle will make here feel like she still sleeping with her littermates and mother. Worth a try and I've had success with my Golden when he was a puppy with those two sleeping aids.

    What a cutie!

    I like the Annabelle suggestion, but I think dogs should also have a shorter, punchier name (easier for them to recognize). How about Annabelle for her "formal" name and Belle for short?

    Cute dog. I have a solid chocolate cocker spaniel that i love to death. Spaniels are great dogs. And I got used to him just having to be touching me while I sleep. I used to wake in the middle of the night and roll to the side so I could move and he'd just get up, walk a foot over and plop his big ass against me again LOL. Why don't you name her Molly [​IMG]

    I like piper.

    I grew up with a black and white springer and have always had a soft spot for them. Beautiful dogs.
