    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.

    Bella sitting pretty


    Too cute


    Rawr, puppy attack!


    All tuckered out


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

    Those are some fabulous pics, Mal. Next time, get you and the pups and put it in the ladies forum.
    Slow, but at least still moving...

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

    Bella? Why not Stella?

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

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

    Very cute. The puppies kind of look like little buffalo calves in the faces, with all that curly hair.
    They told me to wear more lycra, and I said "no, no, no."

    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.

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

    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

    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.
