Pup-Pup and Hanno at Upper Pond Picnic Area
Today I got a new puppy! This has been in the works for a long time. I wanted to get a new female to join our pack as a breeder to keep our genetics from bottlenecking. She arrived today. I’ll let you try and guess her breed history… Leave answers in comments and we’ll see who comes closest.
She doesn’t have an official name yet. Pup-Pup is just her baby name. I need to get to know her and think about how her new genetics line fits into our pack lines to pick an appropriate name which will then carry forward. I have a system to the naming of the dogs. Then the next question will be what will they name her. They have their own naming system too.
Update: The puppy’s name is Pika which references her whiteness being similar to Tika’s line, her likely large size similar to Kita and her new line, the ‘P’ in Pika.

Monday’s child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s child is full of grace,
Wednesday’s child is full of woe,
Thursday’s child has far to go,
Friday’s child is loving and giving,
Saturday’s child works hard for a living,
But the child who is born on the Sabbath day
Is fair and wise and good in every way.
There are several versions. The one I learned is above.
