New puppies!
 
Some pictures of our pair of Bouvier pups that just came home today. They're from a breeder from show dog lines which is why their ears are cropped, it's not something we asked for.

The girl (smaller) is Bella, the boy is Coors.

They're going to be a handful but right now they're so adorable and sweet :D

Those are some fabulous pics, Mal. Next time, get you and the pups and put it in the ladies forum.

Taerom 08-16-07 07:46 PM

cool. They look like poodles in the pics, but I guess if they grow into big dogs, they're alright. :p

Taerom 08-16-07 07:47 PM

oh, and how old are they?

Malistryx 08-16-07 07:48 PM

Bella? Why not Stella? :eek:

Meh, if she's respondin' already to a male name (think Bela Lugosi), then there's nothin' you can do. :o

mirona 08-16-07 07:52 PM

They don't really respond to any names yet, they just came home and got named today :) My parents picked the names.

Nah. "Bella" can be short for "Belladonna"--definitely a female name.

Krink 08-16-07 10:37 PM

Very cute. The puppies kind of look like little buffalo calves in the faces, with all that curly hair.

And Belladonna makes your pupils REALLY BIG. That was a big thing a long time ago. (But I wasn't there).

Awww... so cute. Bella is a great name, and not just because that's what we named our dog :). I think it means beautiful in Italian?

One of my German Shepherd's favorite playmates is a Bouvier named Quinn. He is a tank under that wiry fur. Great dogs.

My mind is in the gutter!!

ms.gio 08-17-07 12:10 AM

Mal, they're adorable. I have two dogs at the moment and they're a handful. Good luck. :beer:

Jamie 08-17-07 12:14 AM

Cute!

Second Mouse 08-17-07 06:08 AM

Cute pups, Mal! Was the boy named after the beer? :eek:

Malistryx 08-17-07 06:15 AM

SM, the boy was named after the Bouvier some family friends had (that I used to ride around on as a little kid), but that one was named after the beer. So indirectly, yes.

I'll have to get more pics of them being cute as they grow up :D

Nice pups. Congrats. Too funny. My brother's bulldog's name is also Bella.

I'm not a fan of it, unfortunately it's the breed standard so it's done to pretty much all pure bred puppies. It apparently helps cut down on ear infections, and in working dogs I can see it being a good thing to have the ears cropped since it would help protect the ears by keeping them from getting caught on stuff. But in a pet I really don't see the need for it.
