Brace yourselves...

LBR's about to have PUPPIES!!

Since LBR is a rescue and supports spaying and neutering, we obviously don't get many litters. But sometimes a poor pregnant momma will find herself in a shelter needing help. And LBR springs into action!

This pretty little lady is Dallas. She was rescued a few days ago, but once she got home, her foster momma started thinking there was something a little strange. She thought maybe Dallas was in heat, but when she went to the v-e-t, he said, "Guess what?!"  Yup, she's having puppies! The v-e-t saw two skulls on the x-ray, so it doesn't look like a big litter. We won't know if they're all boxer or not until they're a few weeks old. But they should be making their grand appearance sometime this week!

Everybody wish Miss Dallas good luck bringing her precious cargo into the world. I'll share news and pictures when I have them!

PeeS: We're trying to decide what the litter theme should be. Our pups are always given a litter theme associated with the mom's name. Like when Sushi had puppies, we called the litter "the Wasabis" and they were named Tuna Roll, Saki, and Maki.  We were thinking maybe we could use Dallas suburbs for this one, or maybe Dallas sports teams (Stars and Cowboy?), or maybe names from the Dallas TV series (J.R. and Bobby?). Let me know if you have any good ideas!

Or you could name them after the GCB (may it rest in peace cancelled after only 1/2 of a season).

Wow, what fun news! Sending healthy thoughts to the Mom-To-Be for a great delivery. Sometimes TV shows or characters are fun. Mom knows someone who named all her dogs after Bonanza characters BOL!

PS Maybe depending on the sex of the pups you could call them Sandy for a girl and Tony for a boy.
MOL this is so funny mom has such a hard time naming pets. Dad told me it nearly took them 2 weeks to decide on my name.

Mom will be squeeing all over the place when she sees those puppies. All the best to Dallas. We think using characters from the TV show would be very timely with the new series coming on.

Woos- Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

Sports Teams: Ranger, Cowboy, Maverick, and Star. I know, I know, it's the Texas Rangers, not the Dallas Rangers, but Ranger is an excellent boxer name!

Or counties: Collin, Tarrant, Grayson, Parker, Rockwall, Wise, Johnson, etc. Those are some strong boxer names.

I'm sending you super pawsitive thoughts for you, Miss Dallas! I can't wait to meet your puppies!

There's a street that my mom and dad lived close to when they were in Dallas. It was called Knox-Henderson. One puppy could be Knox and the other Henderson! Or how about Deep Ellum and the West End? Heehee! Just kidding about that one.

There is nothing more exciting than waiting on the arrival of puppies (or kittens!).We can't wait to meet Dallas' babies. We like the idea of naming them after the characters in the tv show Dallas only because we can't believe it is being resurrected! Gah. LP is OLD :p And there are some pretty good names there :)

the critters in The Cottage xo
