Today we got the good news... a litter of pups were born at Black Bear Farms in Killarney, Ontario - and one of them will be ours! They are weimeraner/labrador cross, giving us the sleek shape of the weimeraner tempered with the behaviour of a lab. He or she will be grey in colour, sometimes called a "silver lab".
The puppy will arrive via Air Canada in September. We are thinking of the name Duke for a male or Duchess for a female... any other suggestions?
Ben is a fan of the University of Michigan and their fight song is "Hail to the Victors" so I thought Victor would be a good name. Ben didn't.
Gramps was named for Ty Cobb so Ben thought Tyrus would be a good name. I like the Detroit Tigers so I thought Tiger was a better name. We agreed to disagree on this point in general.
Ben is a huge Green Bay Packer fan, but he thinks there are a million dogs in Wisconson named Farve so we threw that one out the window. I was glad.
This name thing is at a standstill.
