Introducing Scarlett O'Terror

Nah, actually she's a very sweet little puppy, but she is a lot more active and adventurous than Sherman was when we first brought him home. I have a feeling she will really open up in the coming weeks as she grows and gets use to being here with us in her new home.

Sherman and Scarlett are getting along too. We were a bit taken aback by the size difference in the two. She is a lot smaller than he was when we brought him home. So, right now playtime has to be supervised to keep the Scarlett from getting accidentally trampled. Although she does like to walk behind Sherman and bite his tail and she growls at him to try and entice him to play. She runs to hide as soon as he seems willing to play though.





One nice thing is, she is small enough to be held for now and she actually likes to cuddle up with you for a nap. I"ll enjoy that while I can. Because now she's small but she will probably be around 100 pounds or so when she is full grown. All these photos are from her first night with us.
I'll stop the puppy madness for now, but you can expect to see regular updates and photos as she grows.

I've also got a winner in the name that puppy contest. We did end up using one of the names we already had. And to be honest, she helped pick her own name. We tried several of the names we liked out on her. She seemed to consistently respond to Scarlett, so that is what we ended up using. Everyone had great suggestions; thanks to everyone that posted a suggestion.

So with out further ado, the winner is...... Stephanie . Stephanie, please contact me so I can mail you your prize. My e-mail address is available in my profile.
