My puppies!!
I went to visit my puppies tonight! Originally, I was only getting one, but it turns out we can have both of them! They're Chihuahua pups and will be coming home in about 3 weeks, or as soon as they're weaned!!! They're so tiny, they fit in my hand.

(Please excuse the bad pix, they were taken with my cellphone.)

This is the girl. She's going to be a light tan with some white markings and a black nose.


And this is the boy. Black with white markings.


I'm taking name suggestions...

Awwww! Aren't they sweet...just love baby animals. Our Bear is part Chihuahua and was so very tiny as a puppy. Charlie and Bella are my suggestions! Then again... OMG! They're super tiny, is the whole puppy in your hand?

Kewl. A half dozen or so more and you'll have a whole dog!

They are adorable! So tiny! I was thinking Bonnie & Clyde; or Askim & Asker (as in "ask him" or "ask her").

My dd offered Tickles. When I said there was a boy and a girl, she looked at me weird and said "Tickles and Mrs. Tickles".

"Askim & Asker", LOL

That is so cute...I'd vote for those names!

You'll have to give them Spanish names as they probably don't speak English.

Lol Mason! That reminded me of the line from Anchor man when Will Ferrel tells his dog after it barks at him "You know I don't speak Spanish!"

They are so cute!! I don't have a suggestion for names except don't name them anything that sound too similar. It makes it difficult for the dogs to know who is being called or told to sit, etc.
I am partial to Benny though. My dog is named Bentley his nick name since the day we got him has been Benny.
You could always go by the theory of give a little dog a tough name! My cousin has a mini dachshund named Brutus( after the Ohio state Buckeye). It's hilarious at the dog park when he calls for him. People seriously expect to see a huge dog and a little 6 pound dog comes trotting over.
