    Default Surprise for Dave!

    I don't know how I kept it a secret for 21 days, but I got Dave a Christmas puppy!



    She is out of HRCH Richland's Fully Tilted by AFC Texas Troubador. We are going to name her Run-n-Gun's Ticket to Ride & are calling her Token.

    AWESOME Christmas present!! I'm impressed because I would have a hard time keeping it a secret too! Got to say though, this is one of the few times I totally agree with a Christmas puppy! I usually hate the idea, but in this specific case it is so perfect!! What a cutie!

    Perfect!!!!! Always just the right size to boot. So how did you wrap her? Stocking stuffer?

    My new one is 16 weeks today - difficult to describe just how much noise a 28# fur ball can make with a stainless steel mixing bowl on ceramic tile. Double hearing protection required.

    Have fun with the pup!!!!

    Makes me smile regards

    Thanks everyone! I didn't stuff her in a stocking or wrap her in a box. What I did to surprise Dave was to throw him off with a clue....I said my gift would make him look good. Then I wrapped a black lab ornament and put in under the tree. I had to give him the gift on Friday before Christmas because we needed to go pick her up on Saturday morning. Little did I know that his parents had given him a miniature of what he wanted the year he had asked for a snowmobile. So he got really mad at me when he opened the present and saw the lab ornament with the name "Token" on it. I had to convince him that it represented a REAL dog and that we needed to go get her the next day.

    Bubba...Spot Bot heck..I have a full sized carpet steamer! So far she's been pretty good.

    David M. ....Token does seem a bit out of place, Dave loves his blondes, but if you'll remember we had Lotto for years...Token is just taking his place.

    Nothing better than a black lab pup. Enjoy!
