Here's a picture of our girl that the breeder put up on Facebook today. Meet Roisin (pronounced row-sheen), it means "little rose" in Irish.

She comes home a week from Tuesday.

What a cutie. It will be great fun to watch this little rose bloom and grow! May she be a great big hunk of dog to belie the "little" part of her name.

How big of a hunk will depend on how much Daddy's genes play a role. Mom is around 55 - 60 pounds, right at breed standard for a female.

Roisin is home and I'm trying to be very very quiet so she'll take a nap. She was rather vocal on the ride home until she got herself tired enough to sleep a little. She had some lunch and a little walk outside. I'd forgotten how much an 8 week old puppy wants to try and eat everything (including rocks until she finds she can't chew it).

Bentley (the cat) doesn't quite know what to make of her and she is fascinated by him. They are just about the same size right now.

I think it's going to take a couple of days for Ciara to get used to her. She's kind of gotten used to be an only dog and is being a little stand offish right now. She also didn't think too much a a chicken "paw" - although Roisin was happy to have a couple of little pieces.

P.S. I saw a cake by your name - happy birthday, Rosa

My what big paws she has!!!! paw I have a hunch Bentley rules the roost, is that right? Our previous cat wasn't phased at all about Sean when we brought her home. She was full of spunk and at times thought she was a dog too. grin

I don't know if Bentley rules the roost, but he holds his own against Ciara. When Caleb was still here and the 2 of them ganged up on Bentley he'd high tail it upstairs out of their way. Not that they ever did anything more than chase him - more like a game than wanting to hurt him. And if they seemed to be getting too much in his face, I would call them off.

Roisin wants to play with him since he is fairly close to her size and, of course, Bentley isn't having any of that. He's warned her off with a hiss and smack a couple of times, but her memory is pretty short term. She keeps trying. It's her first experience with a cat - I think she thinks he is some kind of dog.
