I just got word that our new puppy will be transported from Mississippi to CT on Saturday the 29th! We'll have to drive out to get him at the pickup point. We can't wait to bring him home!
I found out a bit more about him. He's 10 weeks old today. He weighs 9 lbs. and is the largest of his litter. He loves to be held, he has a sweet disposition, and is an adventurous boy.
Right now, he is being called "Blue" due to his pretty blue eyes. We'd like to give him a different name. We're still trying to think of one, but so far, the name with the most votes is "Landon".
I've been in contact with his foster mom, and she sent me this picture of him from the other night:
Here are a few from a week or two ago:

He's SO cute! Those blue eyes!!! I'm sure you can't wait to get him! Love the name Landon!
9 pounds at 10 weeks and the largest of the litter? Do you maybe mean 19 pounds? Jonah was 17.5 pounds at 10 weeks, and he was the smallest boy of the litter!
He is adorable. I love "different" names. Landon is great!
Good luck with your new baby.
I went back and checked the email from the foster mom. She did say 9lbs, going on 10. Maybe she's mistaken, and he is heavier?? I don't know. But he does look OK in the pictures I have (not skinny, etc.). And he doesn't look like he's younger than 10 weeks, so the age must be right. He was born on 7/11/07. Hmmmm....anyone else remember their puppies' weights at 10 weeks?
I can't remember Gibson's weight at that age.
Mambo was 5.4 pounds at 6 weeks when I adopted him.
awwww congrats, how exciting!
can't wait to see lotsa pics when you get him.
i remember theo weighing 18lbs at 9wks old, but maybe "blue" and his littermates are all just a little smaller? either way he's too stinkin' cute!

Congratulation & Thank You for saving him. I thought he was a cutie when you first posted his picture.
Let the adventures (and pictures) begin!
well whatever his weight, he is a handsome fellow! How could anynoe not love that sweet face?
He's adorable! They all grow at different rates so as long as he looks healthy don't worry about how much he weighs.
