He's a cutie. I got my Bandit one of those little padded harness things so he doesn't pull on his collar and choke (or at least sound like he is). He goes crazy when I pick it up because he knows he's going somewhere.

You have a little cutie there!!

Jen, awwww how wonderful! (love the chocolate and rust) And great name Declan, let's hope he's "full of goodness", LOL, so don't spoil him or anything!:D
Happy Anniversary to both of you!

He's a real cutie pie!

SQUEEEE!! Did you name him after the saint or Elvis Costello (his real name)? I think I will be ready for a new pet soon (my beloved cat Buddy died almost two years ago and I'm not ready yet.) I think I'm going to have to get a little dog since I discovered I was allergic to him (haven't sneezed since!) and my legs need the regular exercise of walking, but not too much. I have heard that MiniPins are great for small homes and aren't too hyper.

Keep us posted on his progress! they grow up so fast!

Jen, he is absolutely to die for cuteness. It took me a moment to realize that he is NOT a large dog but sitting in someone's hand. Way, way too adorable.

Congratulations on such a wonderful event!!

Gorgeous eyes! How'd you come up with the name?

August 5th, 2015, 08:22 AM
Jen, he is adorable! Enjoy your new buddy!!!

Thank you so much everyone...we are having a great time with him. He had his health check yesterday and all is well just as we expected.... our breeder is very reputable and AKC certified. He did well overnight.... of course I wore ear plugs...it breaks my heart to hear them cry... but my DH said he did not cry very much. It was a very early morning here 6AM, I cleaned Declan's crate while my DH got them all fed and pottied. Then we ate breakfast on the front porch while the doggies played.....now they are all sacked out...Duke and Della on the floor and Declan's in my lap in his sling. I guess you can see a pattern there with the "D" names....I searched for boy D names online , made a list of about 8 favs and we liked Declan because it's Irish... we both have Irish in our family histories. Rebecca...his eyes are a greenish grey now but will change to a golden brown as he matures. I don't know what it is about this breed, they have totally captured my heart, I just love them so much. Declan is our fifth one.
