It's Official!

August 21st, 2010 (02:58 pm)

where i am: hanging with Flurry
how i am: melancholy
accompanied by: nada

Coming our way in just over a week...

Had a long chat with the puppies' breeder this morning and it's official that this little guy is going to be the pup I pick up on my way home from Vancouver!

As sweet as the other puppy looked in the photos, based on what we saw from many other pictures plus conversations/emails with Hugh, both hubby and I were leaning toward this fella as our pick so this news is very good. I'll be flying home from the convention on the 30th but stopping in Winnipeg to pick up the puppy and then carry on to Toronto where the hubby will be picking us up and taking us home.

I'm not sure what I'm more stoked about, PUPPY!!! or GORGEOUS SPN MEN!!! Heeeee. I'm so glad I don't have to choose *g*

On a slightly more bittersweet note, I decided I wanted to post this picture too...

It's of Boomer, our grand old man of 14.5 years, taken just recently by my good friend and next door neighbor, Janet. Boom has slowed down dramatically over the last few years; I go into every vet visit with him bracing myself for bad news because he just seems so old, has for about 2 years now. Certainly "older" at this age than both Dempsey  & Tucker were. But, his blood-work is still good, as are his heart and lungs and, when I took him and Flurry for a walk yesterday he took the lead the whole way. I don't get to see him that perky and bright very often but Janet was fortunate enough to capture him during one of these moments too. I don't write about my dogs all that frequently and, it's quite possible the next time I write about Boom, it will be a memorial for him... Anyway, I love his smile here so wanted to share it with you too.

Oh, and on a completely different note... somebody tell me to stop procrastinating, get my shit together and start packing for this trip!!  I'll be in the air Monday and away for an entire week. And I don't need to bring *that* many pair of shoes!!!

Your new puppy looks adorable. I bet you can't wait to see him. Great pic of your old boy too. It is so hard when they get up in years but it seems that Boomer is still going strong although at a slower pace!

I am envious of Vancouver. I expect lots of pics and play by plays. In depth you know...Jared said this and Jensen said this and bla bla bla.

Have fun!

Jensen Dazzling (VanCon '09)

Thanks! Puppy is adorable... I can't wait to meet him!

And Boom breaks my heart every day. When his time does come, I will take some solace in knowing I still have his mini-me daughter Kismet and grand-daughter Tumble still around... unless he outlasts them!

I failed horribly last year when it came to reporting about Van-Con. I reported on the Friday and Saturday but when it came to Sunday, the J&J day, my RL axis had suddenly tilted drastically with some news that, though it was good, was that big it threw me out of Van-Con squee mode and I never got back into it in terms of focusing and writing about it. So, this time I probably won't write about the other days, aside from some brief thoughts so that I can concentrate my glee on Jensen & Jared. I *know* puppy will immediately eat up all of my waking moments and don't want my flist to lose out on reading about my J&J experience a second time ;).

thumbs up

Congrats! He's so cute!! Have you talked about names yet?

For a second when I first saw your post I thought you'd heard JDM would be at Con! *lol* Must be all the meds warping my brain! :)

Six days!

JDM Rust

Honestly, I can't imagine in a million years JDM at a Creation Con. They just can't afford him ::sniff:: Oh, how I'd love him to be there though ♥

I'm trying to get all packed tonight so tomorrow can be a leisure day. I'm getting there in terms of organizing but haven't actually packed anything away yet. Monday is coming too soon... even if at the same time I'm dying for it to get here ;)

We have picked a name, though it won't be official until we meet him and see if it suits him. His registered name has to be: "Colin vom Slaney-Vale". Yeah, I know. Glorious, ain't it?

He looks like his daddy, a dog named "Colt", and I wanted to stick with a "C" name so came up with "Cannon" which hubby also approved of. I thought it was a name that sort of pays tribute to his sire in that it's also a "C" name, plus it's a gun like his dad, albeit much bigger ;). He's a big puppy so he may well end up finishing up bigger than his old man and, if that ends up being the case, the name will be even more fitting ;).

goofy phetchpup

What a cute face! I love super-puppy flying ears pictures! Have fun with him.

I am completely sure you need as many pairs of shoes as will fit. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Hope you have a great trip and time at the Con.

Hi to Boomer, sweet old dude. How is it the years go so fast? The phetchpup will be 6 end of the month- unbelievable.

Terriers - Luna

What's scary is all of mine, but for this puppy, are *over* 6, even Tumble who I still refer to as "the pup" (she'll be 7 next month).

I think it's time we bring a little more youth into this house again ;).

They're both GORGEOUS and are making me miss my boy even more - but according to reports he's missing me too... *sniff*

And of COURSE you need ALL those shoes!
I haven't even UN-packed yet! LOL!

I think I've convinced myself to bring only 2 pair of heels - black and brown. Just have to decided which brown pair ;). For flats, I'm being ridiculous and bringing 2 similar types (kinda like Steve C's boat shoes LOL) plus running shoes - not sure yet whether to bring the whites or blacks. decisions, decisions LOL!

I just got an email from Lois and she says Canmor and Stephanotis are only a 3 minute drive from her so going there might still be a possibility... depending on how early you and Michelle want to be on the road to Lois'. She agrees with Mapquest that it takes about 1.25 hrs to get from the hotel to her place. We could still do that instead of location sites hunting or, who knows, maybe we could still do both? I think I'm content with either. How would Michelle feel about it? Also, despite my emphasis on locations in Langley/Ft. Langley, I finally looked at the Mapquest route again and saw that we were likely going to be driving through Burnaby (Skin, Scarecrow, Faith, Something Wicked, IMToD, WiaNSB) so that's an option too! Mind you, if we did the Langley stops and carried on up to Hwy 11, we could then do Maple Ridge (Benders) and Coquitlam for Riverview Hosp eps plus SW, Bloodlust. I wish Delta wasn't so far south... I'd love to go to Lloyd's Bar at the crossroads LOL

I haven't even UN-packed yet! LOL!

I'm not at all surprised with what little time you've had. I still find it hilarious though *G*

And I bet your boy misses you. How's Leggo doing?

Leggo is SOOOOO much better - it is a good thing that I am far away and can't rush his recovery!!
He ROLLED today! First time that I know for sure that he has been down and off his feet in a month - and that is a huge relief. Dom says he is almost walking normally... so after his final attempt on Thursday am to prevent me from going, he's obviously decided to just go ahead and start getting better! LOL! So wish this had all been his choice - poor boy was in soooo much pain....
