Game Time

I'm no good at keeping secrets, but I've held this one in for several weeks now. Aren't you proud of me?

Kyle's going to be a big brother!

Part of the reason I was surprised by Kyle's late recall date was the fact that I had already applied for a new puppy. Since that pup is arrives on March 29, I'll have two puppies in training for six and a half weeks. The idea overwhelmed me at first, but now I'm looking forward to the adventure.

In anticipation of the new arrival, it's game time. When I found out about Kyle's transfer, I shared each puzzle piece of information as I gathered it. With puppy #4, I'm doing the opposite. I'm not going to tell anything. Instead you get to place a guess in each of the following categories:

Gender, Breed, Color, and Litter Letter.

The first person to guess correctly will get a care package with a couple of Kyle's favorite toys. After all, Kyle has to be a part of this, or he'll get jealous. If nobody guesses correctly, we'll draw among the people who get 3 out of 4 correct. The game closes when I post a picture of the new pup.

*If you know the answers, please don't play. Your prize is being in on the secret. :)


  1. Hey,
    Dembre & I gave you an award at our blog. You can paste the award on the side of your blog and pass the award onto other bloggers.

    We hope you like it!
    Elijah & Dembre

  2. @Elijah and Dembre--Thank you for the award. :) Don't forget to place guesses about the new puppy.

  3. Mandy, I was going to place a guess but then read the part about knowing the answers and not playing the game.... but I've forgotten the answers so I guess I could still play. But then I remembered that I don't really have a need for any kind of puppy toys... so I guess I'll just say, "Yay! You get another puppy! I can't wait to meet her or him."

  4. @Tawnia--You are great! Thank you for being supportive of my puppies and their early morning wake-up kisses. :)

  5. I KNOW!!! I KNOW!!! Can I tell? :D

  6. @Katie--What would you do with dog toys if you won? Give them to Kyle? You cannot tell, but you can be one of the first people to meet the new arrival. Fair enough? :)

  7. I'm thinking...



  8. Hmmm I must be one of the special people who know all the information. Because I can't guess I will just say good luck to everyone haha :P

  9. Male Black LGX R

    Romero made me guess this. :)

  10. I'm going to go with yellow male lab starting with the letter "A". My thinking is that he would have the same mom as Kyle (Gracie) and the same dad as Snickers (Forte).

    Even if I don't win, I like the logic behind my guess. :) Can't wait to see pictures of "it"!

  11. @Erin and Shelly--You both got three right. I'll have Kyle pick a winner in the next couple of days and let you know.

    @Shelly--If I could have breed any two dogs and taken a pup from the litter, that would have been my choice. When I found out my dream litter existed, I really wanted a Gracie/Forte puppy. However, I don't have enough of an insider scoop to make requests. I'm pretty smitten with Rio anyway. :)

  12. @Erin (of Erin & Co.) and Shelly-Sorry that I've taken so long to get back to you. If you want to email me your addresses, I decided to send both of you prizes to avoid having to draw between only two people. :)

    I'm going to post my junk email address: holafromecuador@hotmail.com. Please mention guide dogs in the subject so that I know to read the email. Congrats!
