  1. Guess Who Won the Volleyball Match?

    October 3, 2009 by myeye

    After Adrienne helped take puppy photos, we went to the University of New Mexico women’s volleyball match against the Air Force Academy.  The ladies won in three sets (Yay!), but the really big shew was when the players were being introduced, and throwing volleyballs into the stands, Adrienne received one.  Following the match, all the players and coaches signed her ball — she also got a Mardi Gras type necklace.  Happy little fan!

    Of course, she shared the wealth with poor Chase — what a good sport he is.

    Well, we tried to stack the boyz, but 2-week old puppies are definitely pasta puppies — you cannot stack them.  However, with Adrienne’s assistance we got these two cute face shots.  Enjoy.

  3. Naming the Puppies

    October 3, 2009 by myeye

    I had planned to use the names of newspapers for this litter, but with just two, I hate to waste a name-rich theme.  Since Alden is going to track with the white-faced boy, she wanted him to have a detective name.  He is therefore “Elyan C-Myste Elementary My Dear Watson”, i.e., “Watson”.  For Abel — after taking “No S**t Sherlock” out of consideration — I was thinking “Elyan C-Myste Baker Street Irregular”, and he can be “Holmes” to his friends (or “Baker”).  My brain (fuzzed as it is) is vaguely recalling that there is another phrase Sherlock often used at the conclusion of a case.  If one of you is a Sherlock Holmes fan and would jog my recollection, it would save me a trip to the library.

    Adrienne is here this morning and we will try to get some photos.  At 1:00 we’re going to a Lobo women’s volleyball match.  Then she’s going home and I’ll take a nap — don’t think Tiger is playing golf today.

    The boyz are officially two weeks old today.  We have eyes, we have eating, we have chasing no — it’s still staggering, we have puppy barks.  Mostly we just have a duo of darling.  These are such cute little guys.
