Yesterday I picked out the little girl (Beanie) from the pug litter. I have named her Aoife (pronounced E-fa). It's a Gaelic name to match my other Irish pug names. :-) It was down between Beanie and Southpaw as they were the two pugs of the five that were more interested in playing with me rather than the other pugs. After watching the final two interact with me, each other and the other three pugs, it was apparent that Southpaw was the dominate puppy of the bunch and the most aggressive puppy in a litter doesn't always make the best agility dog because agility is a team effort and sometimes they tend to be headstrong. So Beanie was the pug for me. And to tell the truth, I am very glad that this is the case. She is a sweetie! She is outgoing, brave and very clever and I know everyone will get tired of looking at photos of her.
Clancy and Molly are doing well with the change in our household. Clancy wants to play but he's still a little rough but he's getting used to being gentle. But it's not like Aoife really cares. She has been chasing him around the house and the yard since we got home yesterday afternoon. She is already climbing up and down the doggie stairs to get to the couch and get back down when she wants to play with Clancy.
As you can imagine, there was not a lot of stitching going on. I'm working on the third row of Alpha Menagerie. I fell asleep on the ride into the office this morning. While Aoife is a little angel, the first couple of nights away from mom and her litter mates is hard on a baby and she was restless and needed comfort from me.
