Belated Christmas Present

My M was ecstatic this morning, and not without reason! Remember that I mentioned I'll be getting a new brother, well, he was just born this morning! This is the photo the breeder emailed us, it's a litter of 4 boys and 2 girls. I'm not sure which one is Helios, since all of them have their bums to me.


Speaking of Helios, my M had decided on this name long ago. She liks greek/ roman mythology, and was trying to find a nice name for a boy which is pronouncable, and they did not die a horrible death, or had some weird relationships with their family. I never knew greek gods were so complicated, or that they can die. Anyway, she settled on Helios, who is the greek god of the Sun. And she thought it appropriate since we're GOLDEN retrievers, and my name starts with H as well.


Update: The breeder just emailed and said there are now 5 boys and 2 girls. One of the boy is a late comer, and he's dark coloured. Out of the 3 dark coloured pups in the pic, 2 are girls.
