So cute. Is Strider a dog or a cat? I can't tell from the photo.

Strider is a little love/snuggle bug, also a bit of a whiny baby yet but I'm sure he'll grow out of that eventually as he gets more acclimated. He accidentally got locked up in the bathroom for a few minutes earlier tonight. You should have heard the crying and howling, You would have thought he was being killed. Hopefully I'll get some frontal pics soon. He's hard to photograph being so black and needs special lighting to get decent pics of his cute little face. He's just too cute and all you want to do is pick him up and squeeze. The cats like him better because he's not as hyper as Arwen and is not as bad about biting as she is. We have had to pick him up for a time-out from her quite often as she doesn't realize he's can't go and go like she can now. I think we are probably going to have to call in some professional help with her as we just aren't making any progress on breaking her of leading with her mouth and teeth, not mean biting, just that's the way she checks everything out.

They are both pugs, she's fawn, he's black.

You gotta be kidding. You have fur family with the same names, albeit spelled differently, as Craig and Medtran's fur family? Wow!

Well, Arwen is spelled the same, but Craig has a block and keeps spelling with an "i" instead of an "e", but Strider is spelled differently. They are Lord of the Rings character names.

D'oh! I forgot that. Isn't it spelled "Strider" in the Hobbit, etc.? I did just mean the spelling of Strider/Stryder. I was too lazy to figure out the right wording for just the one name.

Yep, with an "i". I had to go look it up after GG wrote about hers being a Stryder.

We had originally picked another puppy from an earlier litter, tiny, very tiny, runt of the litter and his name was going to be Gimli but his fontanel still hadn't closed when it was almost time to bring him home, so she offered to let us pick another puppy from Strider's litter born about 3 weeks later. She had 2 females. Since that can cause severe issues, we took her offer. Fortunately though it finally closed up even though it took a few extra weeks. He was still there, although going to his new home within a week or so, when we picked up Strider. Cute as a little button but SOOO tiny, half the size of Strider even though 3 weeks older. As exuberant as Arwen is, it ended up being a good thing because we would have to have constantly been on top of the 2 of them if we had taken the tiny one.
