Ah the suspense is killing you…

…isn’t it? (lotsa photos in this post…)

I bet ya’ll are just dying to know the name of the new puppy (aka my invisible friend aka ‘good potty’ aka ‘no dammit’)

Okay I won’t make you wait anymore…meet Jasmine (Jazz or Jazzy for short, she seems to like Jazz the best):


ohwait that’s not a good shot…try this one:


ohmyGod it’s like herding cats getting her to sit still:


Wait, I think she heard something:


Finally! She’s tired out:


…and then we have Ms. Cranky-Pants:


Can you feel the disdain dripping off of her?  Ice runs through her veins, I swear ;o)

As for photos of them both together – that’s damned near impossible.  Yesterday they were both laying on the same couch but if I had gotten up to fetch the camera that would have started a whole chain reaction since, wherever I goeth, puppy goeth.  I get up, she gets up.  She gets up, we have to go potty.  We go potty, the construction guys look at me like I’m nuts.  They *really* like it when I’m out there in my bathrobe – you know, trying to figure out why the crazy lady thinks her invisible friend needs to go potty so bad that she can’t be bothered to put on pants for the occasion.

Now I seem to recall promising a prize for the best name…and since we didn’t use any of the (very awesome, thank you guys!) suggestions I decided to use my fancy-schmancy number generator thingy (not RR this time since he read the comments) and choose a winner.  Numbers were entered and one was spit out…the winner is *drumroll*

Jessica aka Zarzuela Knits!

Please send me your address and I’ll get your super-de-duper prize out to you ASAP :o)

Thanks to everyone for playing!   I’m going back to monitoring puppy progress (we’re 70% potty trained at this point…I hope soon the light bulb will go on and she’ll realize that going IN FRONT of the door does NOT constitute a ‘good potty’) *sigh*
