  1. No names quite yet as I like to meet the pup first. I have a few in mind but they may not fit their personality at all!
  2. So, so happy that the Kuschel clan is expanding. Xochitl now has a little brother. Expecting him in a couple of weeks.
  3. Xochitl now has a little brother. Will name him when he arrives - but we have lucky puppy #8. Tan/Brown/Cream with a brown nose, male. We are over the moon!
  4. Thanks Greg! She is our little spark plug. Thank you! She always cracks me up with her expressions. She is also incredibly melodramatic about everything!
  5. All is quiet on the western front over here in Kuschel-landia. Xochitl is now sleeping throughout the day (at our feet or snuggled up next to us) while we work. Come 5pm she is ready to play however, and it has gotten is on an earlier work schedule to ensure that we're done with things when she starts bringing us toys. To be honest, we're ready to play too. Right now Xochitl LOVES to play fetch. She flies like the wind in her new backyard! As the weather is cooling down more and more, we now have to corral her back into the house or she would be there all evening/night. Husband is feeling a li
  6. Thank you so, so much for posting those puppy pictures. This brightens up my day and makes me excited for the people on the list getting pups this round. Beautiful mama!
  7. Yay! This just made my day!
  8. Is there an email or something we can lead people to on Facebook?
  9. Yes! I wouldn't mind posting on my Facebook page and do have some people I know in Portland that could pass it on. Just need a pic.
  10. Getting a boy! Boy dogs typically bond to me better and our pup is definitely Shaun's. Hope I can get that chance.
  11. @Samie: "Well behaved." Our dog has definitely chilled out and I couldn't have imagined adding another pup prior to this point. I think a few people have had the same experience as they start pushing 2 years old.
  12. @Samie and @KittynDoc - I feel good about having someone around to unleash her energy with and it will be good for her. I think she is getting super lonely these days.
  13. Thank you! I think she is super cute too. Very dainty at times - when she isn't making the "Why are you doing this to me?" anxiety face. It is good to know that she may be better on the lead down the line. We just sent off our deposit for another puppers and are going to be approaching the off-leash training differently (all the time and walks in our cul-de-sac). She will want to stay around if there is another dog she knows that does stay - this happens with some of her best doggie friends. She won't come for a toy. She has her own mind and when she has made it up to go and "open it
  14. That is the plan! I know she would enjoy it. We need a bit more training as her placement still needs a bit of work, but I'm excited!
  15. The ignoring works so well. Now if only the ignoring worked when she is in a bigger space!
  16. A little Spring update for you - Xochitl has reached a down-right-defiant stage at 1.5 years. When we ask her to do something, she will look away from us and pretend she doesn't hear us. Everything from sit, to even "come" inside the house when no one else is around. I know she knows all her commands (~10). She wants everything to be a game, all the time. Xochitl has become the utter snuggle bug when we're settling in for the night. She cuddles up between Shaun and I on the couch now. This is what I've been waiting for - for forever! She has also settled at a dainty 36lbs and her coat
  17. Hopefully we'll have our fence up and we can have them play in the dog run. If not this year, next? Otherwise there are other dog parks we can hang at.
  18. You really need to create your own forum post for your pup!
  19. Gah! how did I miss this? We are going to be heading to Burning Man this year - and while we're going to be hauling it up there, I wouldn't mind making a stopover on the way back to hang with the pup on the way back. I'm not sure if you're place is fenced in, but I know that our pup will stay around if another pup is around. We take her out on the trails and it is so fun to watch her open up.
  20. Took one of my favorite pics of our pup ever and had to share here.
  21. Eek! Ankle injuries are the worst. I'll be sending you all the healy vibes I can!
  22. Teak has a super fierce face! I LOVE it.
  23. @Nessa - BWAHAHA! We shall have our army!
  24. I am so in love with our soon-to-be new place. I also learned it already has two plants I wanted - tomatoes and jalapeƱos. Moving the tomato plants and I think that the dogs will learn quickly not to eat the jalapeƱos. As for how you pronounce it, think Sochi, like the Olympics. It is the easiest way to explain that one.
  25. A year has come and gone and Shaun and I find ourselves with the ability to purchase a house in Austin... so we did. And it is perfection. It backs up to a creek and most of the neighborhood is without gates. We're building a dog run, but the trails around the house and the neighbors don't mind pups meandering through. For the longest time we never had a job where we could afford a place here and just thought we would be priced out eventually - but things changed, we hustled, and we found ourselves our perfect place within city limits. If you want to check it out, head HERE. But our p
